Happy Rules...?

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a human with many failings, especially more so, where Happy is concerned.

For one, Happy doesn't approve of any incoming phones calls. *Since when she makes the house rules?*

She goes to great lengths to show her displeasure at the sound of phone rings. *No matter how often I try to disguise it by changing the ringing tones.*

Answering early morning phone calls is unacceptable. *Be prepared for a tempest to hit after that.*

Just before 8am this morning, my phone rang. *oh oh* Made a dash to answer it, hoping Happy didn't hear as she was busy barking at her friends walking past outside. Tough luck. She heard.

I had to walk away a little as I couldn't hear clearly between her barks and the incoherent crying sound of a boy on the line. It was a relief when a lady took over and said 'my son' had tummy ache and I need to take him home. It was a wrong number.

I quickly went back to the hall. Too late. There was a puddle on the rug. Hurricane Happy strikes again.

P/s: Wonder if any of my calls made to the wrong people causes any puddles on their rugs...

I guess you really do hate that phone, Happy! Do you like when people knock at the door? This is what riles us up!

Love ya lots,

Hi Happy! Nice to meet you!
My birdie sister hates when we get phone calls too! She squawks so loud you can't hear what the caller is saying!


Peanut said...

Oh my happy you hate the phone don't you. My mom says your poor mom.

Good Thursday morning to you, Serendipity !
Pets certainly make their feelings clearly known ! What does Happy do when the doorbell rings ?

I think the phone is an intrusion on my day, so I actually use my dogs as an excuse to hang up. People I know are trained to email me.

Happy, thank you so much for your birthday wish to my human sister. It helped so much to make her day a "Happy" one! :-)

I just kind of ignore the phone. Mom usually looks at the number and if she doesn't know it she turns off the phone.. She says if it is someone she knows they will call the cell. Of course Louie is deaf so he doesn't even hear it ring. He sleeps through everything. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be deaf and sleep like a baby. But of course Mom says I have to be his "Hearing Eye Dog"

Happy is so funny! Maxy is okay with the phone, but does not tolerate the door bell (even on tv)

Maxy just won a contest and will be featured in an upcoming calendar!

We will be doing a drawing for FREE calendars. Just post a comment on our blog if you would like to be entered in the contest!

Happy New Year!

Hmmmm...maybe I'll try that the next time the phone is taking attention away from me.

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Sure Happy knows how to express her feelings!
If I am awake I don't care about the phone but if I am asleep I wake up and bark like crazy!
Kisses and hugs

i'd say happy certainly rules in the house lolz!

serendipity said...

Simba : Yeah...not a good start.

Maggie & Mitch : Happy gets annoyed with door knocks too!

Mack : Nice to meet you too! Your birdie sis hates the phone too?

Peanut : Yes, poor me...

Annie : Expressive and vocal too hahaha. Happy IS the doorbell. She barks whenever strangers are at the door and she whines and make funny excited noises if it's people she knows.

Jan : It's true, especially more with cell phones. Hehe use dogs as excuse eh?

Rocky & Kitties : That's wonderful :-)

Gus & Louie : How nice for Louie! Happy would wish to sleep through everything too. Happy practises selective hearings though. She turns deaf on certain commands from me. Do you, Gus?

Ashley : Congrats Maxy! Maxy hates the doorbell huh?

Kelsey Ann : Hmm...hope Happy is not giving you ideas LOL

Lorenza : Agreed. It's really annoying to hear the phone ringing especially when we are asleep.

Girl Girl : Tried putting cell phone on silent mode but ended up always missing calls LOL

ET : I think she does...

I hate the phone too. Don't understand why the hoomans can't live with it. It hurts my ears each time rings!

Crikit, Sparky & Ginger said...

Oh my Happy it sure don't sound like your happy when the phone rings, sorry about that. We really don't like the door bell to ring and if it does we try to bark the door down. no luck yet but you probably have sensitive ears huh? like our mommy.

Serendipity your a good mommy to be patient. Can you get a vibrating phone? xo

Love Licks & waggin tails xo
