Pet Pride Monty and Gus

Monty loves to snuggle up with a dog or two, particularly a Labrador. Yesterday Gus was the chosen companion. Monty leapt gracefully up and balanced precariously near the edge of the sofa cushion. (Sometimes he falls off!) Naturally, Gus was delighted that his friend had joined him and proceeded to chew his ear.

Me: Gus, you will be careful won't you? Be very gentle.
Gus: Yes, I'm always careful. Monty's ear is so soft.
Me: I know you mean to be careful but sometimes when you lick my feet you forget and start chewing.
Gus: Sorry!

Monty: Mmmfffrrr . . .
Gus:Eh? What did you say?
Monty: I said, 'You're squashing me.'
Gus: Just having a little rest, that's all.
Monty: Why'd you stop? I like you playing with my ear - it's relaxing.
Gus: Oh, okay.

Me: Gus . . . . ??!!
Gus: It's all right - he wants me to. I'm being gentle, really I am.
Monty: Ooh, that's nice - right there, yes . . .

Gus: Just a lick and a polish to finish off.
Monty: z z z z z z  . . .
