A couple of people who came to the house warming, who shall remain nameless. They know who they are. Didn't treat me with the respect I deserve, Mummy found this very upsetting and won't be asking them round again unless they read, learn and memorise this...

My Dog Lives In This House

My dog lives in this house. You are welcome to come and visit me anytime but we have a few things that you must understand before you visit. You must expect a few dog hairs to stick to your clothes. I vacuum and clean, but my dog lives here too.

You may be leaned on and find him in your lap a few times but he does this because he loves people and wants to say Hello. So if you feel that you are too good for his love then you are not welcomed here because this is his home too.

My dog is well mannered and very clean but if you are one of those people who think all animals are dirty and smell, then go away. You are not the type of person that I care to associate with. If you don't like the sound of barking, then my home is not going to be a comfortable place for you to visit.

Do not expect me to lock my dog in another room during your visit. I have trained my dog well so
he will not do anything to you except maybe want a pat on the head. I will not subject him to
You see, this is OUR home. We have been together since he was a small puppy scampering around the house. I raised him into a well mannered, beautifully behaved dog.

I am proud of him. I consider him my personal gift from GOD. He has done nothing but give me his endless love and devotion for many years. I love him dearly and want to make his years happy ones. As happy as he made mine.

When I was sick, he stayed right by my side, as I did his when he is not having a good day. A better friend I could not ask for.

When no one else cared, my dog did. He has given me nothing but pure joy and I love him endlessly. So please understand that I am not being rude. I'm just looking out for my best friend.

Blue said...

I couldn't agree more.
Love me, love my dog, even if I don't have one @ the moment.
And who wouldn't love you Simba.
You can sit on my lap anytime.
But some folks are strange - best to avoid them.

Maggie & Mitch said...

I can't imagine anyone not loving you and wanting to be near you! I guess these folks are not "true" friends!

Love ya lots,

Faya said...

I wish I could come to your house....this is the perfect house...
Kisses, Faya

Ferndoggle said...

Bravo Simba's Mummy! Mom tells vistors to expect dog hair on their clothes when they leave and a few sloppy kisses if they allow.

If they don't like it, they can leave.


ToFFee said...

Oh simba!

how dare they come to your home and not treat you with respect..

let me know who they are and I'll give them respect.. like a bite on their butts.


Gaucho and Verdi said...

simba .. plas plas plas....
is grate...
You see, this is OUR home,....

umekotyan said...

I understand the thing that simba thinks about.
The friend is chosen.
And, it is necessary to bear it in mind because it is chosen.
It is important advice.

Tofu Burger said...

Yes Simba! My mama feels the same way! When you come to my house you will be greeted with tail wags and bum sniffs :)


Simba said...

Girl girl, you'd think they'd have more manners.

Boo, poor Dopey having to live with you.

Blue, we shall avoid them from now on.

Maggie and Mitch, they don't know how to love.

Faya, you'd be more then welcome.

Penny, they know where the door is.

Toffee, I'll email you their addresses.

Gaucho and Verdi, the humans live with me.

Ume tyan, chose your friends wisely.

Tofu, they don't have to come here do they.

Katherine and Pippa, said...

Quite right. Those are fine words and we agree with them. Perhaps we would be less moderate.

Go Simba, it's your realm.


Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Cheeky so and so's!

Frasier said...

Good One Simba,
Hope the rude people have learnt whose house and who rules here!

MaxDex said...

Oh that's horrid. How can they come to your home and not treat you nice?
Missy's housemate was like this and she told him off and said, "I love him like I love any normal human being. His life is priceless. No, you CANNOT chain him up!"
This was when that idiot wanted to chain me up because he claims I scratch his car. pooh!

MONA, JACKS & TOBY TOO !! said...


How rude can some folks get.
These are rules we live by.
Mommy says if you don't like my dogs you don't like me.

She has actually made people GET OUT when they say something bad to was.

Don't let them bother you cause your Mommy set them right.

Love lots...Just us!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Simba
Your mom is so right!! Sure is your home and if they don't like it... so the door is open!!
Those same rules apply here in my house!
Have a good night

Texas's Mum said...

Amber-Mae said...

Ugh! I hate hoomans who show no respect to animals I mean afterall, it is YOUR house. I hope they didn't so anything too nasty to you or something...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

River said...

I'm sorry to hear that it seems some humans were rude to you in your own house Simba, that's just not right.


Simba said...

Pippa, they should be glad I let them in at all.

Marvin, Mummy hopes they read it too.

Thor, I am a part of this family, people don't seen to realise that.

Harry, I think they hurt Mummys feelings more.

Jackson, say it as it is.

Joe, see, you all understand.

Momo, I hope they are ashamed of them selves.

Frasier, they won't get away with it again.

Maxdex, chained up! Thats even worse.

Mona, jacks and Toby, your Mummy has the right idea.

Lorenza, they should learn to open their hearts to Simba love.

Texas, if they don't they can stay away.

AM. its not right.

River, they won't get another chance.

Simba xx

Balboa & Mommy said...

serendipity said...

The world will be a better place with less of rudeness! Well said, Simba! Those are very good rules for guests!

T-man said...

Ooh, we agree with your mama!! We don't like to mingle with non-doggie lovers.

Stanley said...


That was SO well said. I personally can't imagine what type of hooman would NOT want to have you around them, but they have bigger problems than some dog hair on their clothes.

I think I love your mama & fat, fat daddy! If that's how they feel about you, they are OK in my book!

Goober love,
