I’ll Huff and Puff and Blow Your Gate Down


SCORE IS:  PIG 3 / MOM ZERO – snort snort

I told you the other day mom was up to something. She’s so funny. Here’s the story.
Mom doesn’t want me in the kitchen area. She says there’s too many things I can get into. Well, I’m no dumb piggy. I know the kitchen is like the happening place and it’s where the food comes from. Heck, I try to get in there as much as possible. 🙂
Well let me introduce you to baby gate #1. Ha! I laugh at it. Such an amateur my mom. Gate was made out of wood and plastic. I did keep me out for a bit when I was a mere youngster. But then, I grew and honed in on my snout abilities. Snort 🙂 Once I’ve mastered those, the world was mine. I could put my snout under the rickety gate, pull up and sneak under into the glorious kitchen. Freedom and gate #1 down. Remember, mom even tried this gate in the hallway a while back. I ran down the hallway and was able to knock it down. Looked at mom laughing and then went back to the gate and proceeded to jump up and down on it hoping to kill it. Laughing, even the purr things hated it.


This picture is when mom had the gate to the room in my door. Like I said, it worked ok until I got older but I was able to through it. This made me pig 1 and mommy zero.


So then let me introduce gate #2. Well this gate mom decided to go metal. There were a couple of problems with this one. Snort – so funny. First of all, it was short and where mommy wanted to put it in the kitchen, it didn’t fit.  The extensions weren’t long enough.  And, the way she tried to put it in the threshold of the kitchen, I was able to jump over it.  Snort Snort – gate #2 down!


So, mom gets smart and borrows my computer.  She’s acting all sneaky and mumbling to herself and I know she’s up to something.  She gives me my computer back later that night and tells me, “Bacon, soon I will win.”  I just grin and grunt because I know that’s funny.  So yesterday, some big boxes got delivered by the man in brown.  Mom was so excited when she got home and kept looking at me saying, “Soon.”  After mom puts me down for bedtime, I stay awake and listen.  I hear the tear of the boxes, papers going everywhere and the oomphs and groans from the living room.  Then, I hear a dirty word and chuckle.  I win again – snort.  Apparently the company mom bought the newest torture for me from sent her the wrong thing.  Thanks nameless company – I think I love you. 

I heard mom on the phone talking to the company.  She was frustrated with them for making the mistake.  I heard her say send it so okay – bring on challenge gate #4 – snort snort.  I’ll keep you posted with the laughs!
