Prison Overcrowding

We have rights!
We should each get our own cell.
We haven't even had a fair trial.
We are entitled to a jury of our peers!Dogs, cats, hamsters, and other members of the jury, we would like to present the evidence of this case to you. I'm sure that once you hear the facts, you will find that we are not guilty of the charges.
It all started this morning. The big bathtub in the back yard was leaking and some strange man came to fix it. Half way through the job, he left to get a new part. We had been quietly behaving in the house the entire time he was working in the back yard. When he left, the girl went out to inspect the job. Then, the girl opened the back door of the house and let us into the yard to inspect (and poop and pee).
This is what the gate usually looks like when we go in the back yard.

Today, it looked like this.

We didn't know we weren't supposed to go through the door. It was wide open. We thought it was an invitation. If not for the girl's carelessness and negligence, we never would have had the opportunity to explore our neighborhood unsupervised.

Based, on these facts, we are asking you to acquit us. Let us go free!
~~Comet and BLU

the girl adds.....

Comet and BLU left out a few little details. They failed to mention that almost immediately after they ran through the gate, I realized what happened and called them. I called both of them and told them to come. Neither did. In fact, they looked at me and turned and ran the other way. They refused to come back until I got in the car and drove up to them. It was only the open car door that got them to stop their reign of terror on the neighborhood and return home. Based on these facts, you MUST find them guilty as charged.
This is where they belong and for a good long time!

Hi Blue and Comet.
I don't know why but for some reason I guess your girl's version is more accurate!
I hope you get out of prision soon!
Kisses and hugs

Joe Stains said...

Deefor said...

Not guilty! The door is open. You go out. Why is that your fault? Nice of your mom to pick you up with the car. Free Comet and BLU.

Uh oh...sounds like it was a very dangerous thing to do. Let me know if you need us to break you out of prison!

Maggie & Mitch said...

You scared your mom to death! She'll relax and let you out as soon as she realizes that you're both safe and sound at home! Start counting the minutes to be set free!

I know you guys feel like it's not fair, but you have to understand your people care for you and they were afraid something bad could happen to you if you ran away. So in their opinion this is in your best interest!

Opps is all I can say! I thought I got into trouble, but I think you two beat me. I had to do time yesterday in my prison. It's too embarrasing to post. But, we all have to do time.

So glad you were quick enough to catch them and them came to the car. I know mine would not listen. They don't realize the danger and how we feel after something like this happens. Hopefully prison time will make them think about it.

Oh no Blu and Comet, I'm sure you didn't mean to run off. It must be the overwhelmed excitement. Hope your girl understand and let your all out of prison soon..

Hi Woo Comet & Blu,
Yur girl should've checked that the gate was closed b-4 she left you out. On-the-other-paw you shouldn't have run away when she called you. It's scary OUT THERE & you could get major hurt! I hope both of you learned a lesson over this & hopes that yur jail time will be over soon.

Gus and Louie said...

We are sorry but the girl has it right. I think we could dismiss if you had returned when you were asked... Mom gets really upset with us when I don't listen. Of course Louie is deaf and never listens... He's got it made..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus and Louie

Kirby said...

Oh no, you guys have been misbehaving. Got to remember to behave especially when the girl is looking right at you.

Your pal,

Amber-Mae said...

Oh gosh, well...It's partly yours & your girl's fault! 1st, your girl shouldn't have left the gate open. 2nd, you both shouldn't have ran out to explore your neighborhood. It's dangerous out there... Have you heard about those things called CARS before? They terrorize the streets & they can run over you guys if you guys are not careful. So, becareful! Hope you both will be let out soon...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Hey Comet and BLU, you probably shouldn't run from the scene of the crime...but wait, if it wasn't a crime to begin with, then you're not guilty!!!

Your friend, Lenny
