Time to Rearrange the Furniture

This is NOT GOOD.

Okay, class, let’s look at all of the ways in which this video is terrifying:

A) Brian and I are RIGHT THERE!  We’re both in the room!  For part of the video, I’m 18 inches away from him on the couch!  In fact, Sid turns around and LOOKS RIGHT AT US multiple times throughout!  At least when he was stealing our Tupperware, he respected us enough to wait until we left the apartment!

B) The apples are a whole shelf HIGHER than the shelf from which he retrieved the ginger cookies!  We keep everything breakable and edible on those two shelves specifically because we thought they were not on his radar!  Now we have to worry about our dishes?!

C) Again, we are RIGHT THERE!  Have you no shame, pug?!

(Okay, in Sid’s defense, we aren’t exactly telling him to NOT climb onto the back of the couch.  But, in our defense, can you blame us?  We need to get this ridiculousness on film, people!  If this isn’t a blog-worthy moment, I’m not sure what is!  And, to our credit, all subsequent attempts by Sid to scale the couch and/or shelves have been swiftly cut short by the proper authorities.)

    I would NEVER think to do that!!!! Plus my humans are too savvy – chairs are pushed in, table is too high, I am too short . . .
    Love Noodles

    BOLD Sid…Just plain BOLD. I at least wait until my human is gone before I perform any para military operations to take down the steal trashcan (which is bolted into the wall due to my previous attempts). I like your style:)

    Pug Love

    Hi Sid. You’re not in solitary are you? I have to agree with Myko that it was a bold move climbing the couch when the ‘rents are home. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I can totally see things from your point of view. The apples on that shelf are in plain sight, so how are you to know that they aren’t for the taking? And I know that when I moved in I never saw any rule book or manual stating what the humans can do/have and what the pug can/can’t. I would just tell your parents that if more treats were dispensed throughout the day, you wouldn’t have to resort to furniture climbing. Maybe you can strike up a compromise? Good luck, Sid! May the power of the pug be with you!
    Love,
    Payton

    SId, you have skills. Remind us to tell you the reason that there is an old door propped up between our couch and the kitchen counter.
    Poor Sid’s momma. She sounds so worried.

    That was pretty awesome dude…and I’m guessing you looked at mom and dad cause you needed a little help reaching the apples. Darn your short legs. There’s something to be said for tenacity!

    Oh, Sid. I totally understand why you kept looking over at your mom & dad — you were expecting their help. I know whenever I’m having trouble getting my, ahem, considerable caboose up on the conter, the back of the couch, or on the desktop, I have every expectation that my humans will come and give me a hand. I send them clear signals, but really they are rather dense. It has taken me many years to train them to do the few tricks that they have mastered (turing on the water faucet at the sink when I site next to it, tossing me toys, that kind of thing). I guess I’d say keep trying. Maybe someday your humans will figure out that they are there to dote on your every need and whim. Good luck!
