I don't know what the big deal is...

It wasn't that hard getting onto the computer this morning. Normally, it would have been a real chore because fatty would have been trying to document the happenings of the house, but since he's too busy moping and being a pita (pain-in-the-ass for those not in the know), I had no trouble at all. Can we not all agree he is a bit...dramatic?

Anyhoo...

I did manage to get one picture of the guinea pig. Zeus keeps ranting on and on that its a puppy, but I think he must have a streak of paranoia in him. (Of course, I would be one to know so I feel confident in stating this.) I think he just creates these scenarios so he has something to write about, similar to The National Enquirer.

Great read, by the way.

There are several reasons this is not a puppy. The rodent is not big enough to be a puppy. He chirps like a mouse! His eyes are bulbous and always darting to and fro. Only guinea pigs have eyes that are too big for their heads. Oh, did I also mention he has no tail? Everyone knows that's a staple for puppies so clearly, this is not a canine.

And since it is a guinea pig, if it gets out of control, I'll eat him. He does look pretty tasty. Those hind quarters are packed with meat. I know quality when I see it.

I am providing the following picture as my evidence. You would think that with a scientific brother like Zeus that he would have figured this out before me, but this just goes to show how you can be completely book smart but not street smart. He needs to get over himself.

Hi Isis! Waves with paw. Pig huh? Does he make the Gweek noise, cause the legs look a bit long.

The Crew said...

Hmmmm...that is an odd looking creature, Isis. The dawgs that visit us are hairy with big ears and long tails, so we know they're canines. In your case though, you must rely on your hearing and nothing else. Disregard what you see and listen carefully for yips, barks, arfs and whining, all of which are clear signs you're dealing with a DAWG!!

Hi Isis!!!! maybe he tastes like bacon? Have you tried to lick him?

The Creek Cats said...

Pita.... lol!
You're right, it's obviously a guinea pig!

Angel said...

We have never seen a guinea pig or a puppy at our house, so we will have to rely on you and Zeus. But it looks like you can not agree! Mom won"t pick sides, so is not giving us any hints!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I'm not sure that telling Zeus he is a guinea pig is the way to go. He's chasable and Guinea pigs just squeal!

Parker said...

Wow, what a strange looking fella'. I just don't know what to make of him...

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Ummm, Isis.... we gotta tell you...we have 3 guinea pigs at our house and that picture you posted is not a piggie.
And our piggies just turn around and chase us too, so they don't even provide much sport.

Noir said...

Wow, Isis-uh...I think this creature is, well--I a canine. He may kinda look like a rodent now--but maybe later...? I bet you guys will like him later....maybe...?

Is THAT a Boston Terrier, Zeus an' Isis? It does look rather small an' rodent-like.

I'm awarding you the "Life is Grand" honor ... You'll find it on my 4/9/09 post.

We have never seen a guinea pig, but he does look like a pup we have seen before. Keep an eye on him.

Eric and Flynn said...

Um Isis, we think you may have to bow to Zeus on this one.

Lois Lane/Laney said...

Oh my goodness! He's so cute!

Cory said...

Oh, sorry we're suckers for a baby...even if it is a pig/dog/alien etc. We want to give him a lick!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Oh Zeus...what's not to like? Both of you have velvety noses, and paws and claws! We bet he just wants to be furrends!

Carmen said...

sounds like there may be some sibling rivalry going on. can't wait to see who wins. :)

Elvin said...

Huh. That guinea pig kinda looks like a baby puppy. Kind of weird.

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

Guinea pig...yeah. That's right.

Tuck said...

Umm, Isis, I don't think Zeus is going to be happy that you called him those names. I think that strange looking animal is going to grow into a woofie. Zeus is right to be pissed!

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh crap! Um, Isis, we haf some bad news sweetie, dat is a woofie! Cute little guy, but, woofie none the less...try to be a little more supportive of Zeus, okay, a woofie in da house can be trawmatik fur some of us.

Happy Easter from all of us!!
