Don't Leave Me Out!

I don't like being left out of anything. If the van is leaving, I want to be in it. If food is being eaten, I want to taste it. If affection is being lavished, I want to be the lavishee. You get the picture.

As a pup of my generation, I also don't want to be left out of any technological trends. Face it, you fall behind even one day and the next thing you know you're irreparably passe. I mean, could you imagine living in today's world without your own cell phone, iPod, or 3D glasses? I for one cannot, and will not!

Which is why I worry when I see something like this:

What's going on here? It looks like the little human is being trained to fly his own spaceship, which I've wanted to do since I was four months old. This is very unfair.

And check out this new little eating contraption:

I think it's called an iBowl. You eat out of it like a regular bowl, but it comes in fancy colors and the food is downloaded straight into your mouth. You can only imagine how much I want one of those!

As you can see, I can't afford to fall behind any further. Next thing you know, they'll invent a way for dogs to let themselves into the backyard and I'll still be standing at the door waiting to be let out by someone else, looking like a complete idiot! Pass me the lava lamp and the 8-track tapes while you're at it...

There's only one thing to do: Begin advanced negotiation techniques.

Hand over the iBowl and you can have the kid back!

    Make sure that the iBowl is full before you hand over the little human!

    Thanks for the tip! Incidentally, which Holy are you - I know several. Are you Holy Moley, Holy Cow, or Holy Toledo?

    Holy Smokes!
    I had no idea there were so many holys! Anyway, my dear sister, you better get working on the cute factor because that little fella is really going to start stealing the show around your house.
