Early this morning when it was still dark and Mom was asleep, me and Penlapee came up with a plan. We wanted to go outside to run and play, but we knew Mom wouldn't want to get up.
So I paced up and down next to the bed and whimpered a little bit to make her think I needed a potty break real bad. Sure enough, we fooled her. She got up and we went out in the backyard.
What Mom didn't know is that we weren't coming back. When Mom called us, Penlapee kept running in circles and I hid behind the garage. Mom acted all sweetie sweet and said, Come on now. Let's go back to bed, darling puppies.
Ha! I came out from behind the garage so Mom thought we would come inside. Instead, I ran over and hid under the big bush.
Mom came out on the deck and said in a way that was kinda stern, Now that's it. Get in here. It's time to go back to bed.
Penlapee was still running in circles (I don't know where she thinks she's going), and I hid behind the garage again. Mom started to get kinda mad. She said, Get in this house right now!
Nope! Not us.
Mom went inside. I thought she'd go back to bed and we could play as long as we wanted, but that's not what happened. Mom is a tattletale. She really went inside to get Big Human Brudder. He gave me a bath with the hose a few days ago and he squirted my butt. It was so embarrassing.
Big Human Brudder came out. The jig was up. He said, Come inside.
We went. We have to do what he says cuz he can pick us up and move us wherever he wants us to be. We hate that.
Mom said, This is ridiculous. It's five a clock in the morning. Now let's all go to bed.
And that's what we did.
But only because Big Human Brudder was there.
Okay I love you bye-bye.

Thanks a bunch for the cartoon about it, Mrs. Ducky.
