You Can Stop Arguing About Global Warming Now

Wonderbutt, the Dog Who Ate the World

Wonderbutt, I’m finding, is not a big environmentalist.

Forget the Greenhouse Effect.  That dog took about 9.53 minutes to completely detach the North Pole from his Orbee Planet Ball last night.  And he was not pleased when I denied him the pleasure of ingesting it.  (Actually, it was probably the South Pole (Antarctica), if you want to be technical, since it was the same color of the other faux landmasses he partially consumed a couple of days ago.)  The point is, he has absolutely no respect for the Earth. The good, or bad, news – depending on how you look at it – is that there are now no continents left for Wonderbutt to devour.

He followed up that feat with an attack on our recycling bin today when Dimples, our daughter, once again left the pantry door open.

“No, I didn’t.”

“Yes, you did.”

“No, I didn’t.”

“Yes, you did.”

At which point I concluded that next school year, the year in which I become Dimples’ Gifted and Talented teacher once a week, the year that she is in 5th grade, will be the Year that the World Implodes.  So, recycling seems a bit superfluous anyway.

My fault for throwing away an unread newspaper

Wonderbutt’s definition of “recycling” seems to be “redecorate the house with things I have chewed.  And then I will chew them again.  And then I will find things I haven’t chewed, and make sure they bear my mark, too.”

  1. He was probably just wanting to read the editorials. Damn bag and no opposable thumbs…

  2. So the Mayans were right…

  3. Is he just trying to eat all the plastic so you’ll have no pooper bags with which to tidy up after him? Or maybe, he has a plastic intestine (notwhatiwanted2say)?

    ooops! naughty old WB How is your new furniture?

  5. Are you sure he’s not part goat?

  6. This conversation is much like the ones we have at my house! Last week, a mystery person left our pantry open, and our golden retriever Lucy took it upon herself to eat through a box of uncooked pasta. Who knew pasta was so tasty without being cooked! 🙂

  7. You reproduce what is shown on the last pic, exhibit it at the MoMa and that’s modern art. Fame and fortune!

  8. Are you kidding? Wonderbutt is a born recycler. He’s just reducing the plastic to smaller pieces for processing…

  9. Strike against you Wonderbutt! I feel so guilty when I recycle an unread newspaper!!

  10. My dog never eats the newspaper but he likes to eat up the bread.

  11. Wonderbutt really doesn’t have a desire to go green. 🙂

    Bella and DiDi

  12. Man! Can wonderbutt get a persistence award???

  13. Hmm, I really can’t see anything wrong in those pictures 🙂

  14. Oh, how we love dogs that recycle and redecorate for us! LOL…. Especially the christmas season everything has to be “colliefied”! LOL…. Wonderbutt sounds like he is expressing his feelings about each topic and pretty clearly too… LOL When does that new furniture arrive? Then the real redecorating will begin… 🙂 We are praying for you. 🙂 🙂 🙂
