Monday Musings

Since the subtitle of Bocci's Beefs is "One Dog's Musings on Life with Humans and Other Animals", we thought we'd spend at least part of every Monday ruminating about something that happened over the weekend, and let you help us figure out if our thinking on the matter is as "spot on" as we (or at least I) tend to believe it is. Sometimes it takes a village, or in our case, the entire blogosphere, to figure out us pets and humans, don't you think?

 Well, I'm still recovering from not having Parental Unit around for a full three nights and three and a half days, but at least I started eating again within few hours of her return. Now, keep in mind, I knew she was all excited about going to this BlogPaws conference, and I also knew from first hand experience (I attended the first one), what a great time it was for humans and pets alike. But, I couldn't figure out why in the heck she didn't take me with her. So after many days of ruminating about being left behind, here are the top six reasons I've come up with:

1. She's quite selfish and wanted to keep all the fun to herself.

2. I'm too big to fit under an airplane seat, and she was afraid for me to fly in the cargo hold.

3. I was a bad boy at the first BlogPaws conference and she's never recovered from the embarrassment. See that post here: boccibeefs.blogspot.com/2010/04/shocking-behavior-revealed.html

4. She just had to hug and kiss all of the other pets there, and wanted to spare my feelings.

5. All of the above, and then some!

6. None of the above-come up with your own!

Please let us know in your comment which of the responses you think is correct by picking one of the above numbers or concocting your own reason.
And check back on Wednesday evening when we'll tally the responses and let you know the one most frequently chosen...and the real reason Parental Unit didn't take me. We're looking forward to hearing what you think!

I'm betting it's #2 - we missed you, but better safe than sorry!

I am saying the exact same thing that Pup Fan said, you just wouldn't fit under the seat.

I sooooo loved meeting your Mom (and Pup Fan) at BlogPaws but I wish I had had more time to actually SPEAK TO and get to know her. Maybe next year? I sure hope so!

I loved meeting both of you, too! It sure was a busy few days-I haven't quite recovered yet!

I loved reading your post about last year's antics! I couldn't blame you, even if you were bad. ;)

I think I will go with number 2 like the others.
