PENELOPE SPEAKS: MOM MOM IS UNHAPPY

Hello. It is I, Penelope.


Mom Mom is upset. She acts as if I'm to blame, which is not possible. I sympathize with her, but the trouble is not my fault.

After I decided to live the royal life with Mom Mom and Franklin, Mom Mom accused me of leaving wet spots on the rug when she left the house. Not true, of course. It was Franklin.

Mom got a prison for me and made me go inside when she is away. It's true that the prison has a comfy bed. I also get my red Kong when I'm in prison. The Kong has cheese and peanut butter in it. It is quite delicious and makes for an excellent chewing experience.

Mom Mom said that the wet spots went away when I was in prison. Bah, humbug!

In spite of the soft bed and my yummy Kong, I do not like prison. I do not belong there.

Someone else agreed with me––I know not who it could be––and decided to destroy my prison. First, Someone chewed on the front of the prison so it had holes in it and sometimes, if I happened to be in the mood, I could open the metal door myself and greet Mom Mom when she got home.


Mom Mom put something that tasted bad on the prison. Someone stopped chewing on it.

But today, Mom Mom went to the post office. While she was gone, Someone decided to remove the metal side of the prison.



Of course, I departed through the opening. When Mom Mom came in the front door, she said (in quite a disdainful manner), What are YOU doing here, Penelope?

Then she found the metal piece on the floor. Here's the metal piece. Mom Mom put it on top of the prison.


Mom Mom was quite pleased to find that I Franklin did not create wet spots on the floor. However, she was quite unhappy when she discovered that Someone had chewed on the Martha Stewart bedspread that she thinks is so pretty.


Can you see that the Martha Stewart bedspread is a bit torn? It also has a small hole in it. Mom Mom was so irritated that she did not bother to photograph the hole.

No matter. It is a small hole.

Obviously, I shall no longer be in prison when Mom Mom goes away. HA!

Franklin had better not leave wet spots on the floor.

I guess you know that Stella girl lives here now. I ignore her. Even when she sleeps in my chair with me. Even though it is quite cozy and cuddly.

I am Her Royal Highness The Princess Penelope. That Stella girl probably wants to be royalty, but I do not believe it is possible for her to have a title.

That is all. Goodbye.

  4. What kind of police state is Mom Mom running over there?

  5. If I left a wet spot I think my wife would put me in prison, too.

  6. I had better stop leaving wet spots.
    That cage doesn't look very comfortable.

    1. Mom Mom says you should live in a prison, Mr. Penwusser.

  7. Obviously it wasn't Stella, either, who left the wet spots if they went away when the princess was contained. With three dogs it is harder to find the culprits sometimes.

    1. That girl Stella also has a prison. She has to be in the yard, with Mom Mom, or in prison. She has a pee-pee problem with the living room rug.

    2. Oh goodness! Sad--I thought she was better. Hopefully they will both learn. Either that or will have to spend time in prison. :(

    3. That Stella girl and I go to our separate prisons when Mom Mom is gone. She leaves Franklin in charge, and he can't even spell.

  8. It is great that you don't have to live in the prison anymore. Franklin shouldn't leave wet spots;) I'm sure Mom Mom doesn't stay angry for long:) Keep well.

    1. Oh, that is not so. Mom Mom angers easily and remains angry for years at a time. I happen to know she has placed an order for a new prison. Maybe she won't be able to put it together.

  9. Penelope would have been a match for my Yorkie. He was smaller so he was able to slip away from any and all impediments to his freedom. I once found him lying sprawled on top of my umbrella stand, with his body splayed out among the umbrellas. God knows how long he was up there.

    1. I would not do such a thing. I prefer the bed with the pretty Martha Stewart bedspread. It is quite chewable, not that I would chew on it.

  10. Careful there, Penelope, or you will be outwitted.

  11. Princess Penelope, how could you blame Franklin for the wet spots and who chewed the door to your prison was that Franklin as well

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Perhaps. I think yes. I think Franklin is to blame for everything.

  12. My cell is made of metal all around. I dare say, like a CAGE!!!!! (Plus oodles of blankies and such). I have been spending a bit of time in there lately due to similar mysterious puddles on the floor. My door doesn't get latched, but that makes me wonder why, so I don't try to escape.

    1. I only enter prison when Mom Mom insists. Then she shuts the door.

  13. Oh, Penelope. We just be sisters from another mother, because I'm in deep doo-doo today as well. I swear I did nothing (as did you), but Mom and Dad don't have anyone else to blame it on, so I'm in the proverbial doghouse.

    I completely believe you in all ways. How can humans accuse us of such atrocities and sleep at night? Dad hasn't spoken to me for hours. Mom did feed me and rub my head, but that's it.

    Here's my number. Call me, maybe? I think we have a lot in common.

    Love,
    Gracie.

    1. Poor, poor Gracie. I know you did nothing wrong. Perhaps your mom is related to my Mom Mom.

  14. Penelope, you are so lucky to have a patient loving mom. Now, who is this Stella you speak of?

    1. Stella has joined our family. Mom wrote a post about her on Wednesday.

  15. Sounds like Mom Mom is being an authoritarian. Also known as dictator :) Especially to the innocent.

    1. Another appropriate word for Mom Mom is despot.

  16. That is hilarious! Penelope, I'm glad you're no longer in prison. I tried prison for my wet-spot-maker, but she broke teeth trying get out. Now, I just deal with wet spots.

    1. Mom Mom refuses to deal with wet spots. A new prison awaits me.

  17. Oh my gosh. Grin. They certainly are creative, aren't they?

    1. I am certainly creative at getting out of prison. I shall escape the new prison, too.

  18. Seems the prison isn't very secure. So who is the culprit leaving the wet spots? Surely not the sweet Penelope???

  19. Oh, Penelope! You have been such a bad girl! But, this time of year is exciting!

  20. Penelope is so cute! And very clever for getting out of the crate. Marta hangs off of her crate bars like a hamster
