Lulu’s Playtime Tips, Part 1: Seize the High Ground

Hello friendlies! Lulu here! You may remember that not long ago we hosted my little friend Penny for part of the day. It turned out that was just a dry run for a longer visit from Penny, while her family visited their family in another part of the country. That gave us plenty more time to run around and play, which was fun for me, and beneficial for you, friendlies, because I have compiled some playtime tips that may help you out when playing with someone bigger or smaller than you. And my first tip is: Seize the high ground. My assistant Penny will demonstrate.

As you can see, Penny goes for the high ground very quickly, from which she is able to perform feats she could normally never accomplish if we were level, such as inspecting my ears. It also allows her to conduct guerilla strikes on the floor before returning to the relative safety of the couch. Plus she gets in some lap time with a human while she’s up there.

Charlee: “You dogs think the sofa is high ground. That’s cute.”
Lulu: “What is and isn’t high ground is all relative.”
Chaplin: “The sofa is where *I* get lap time with humans. Let’s just make sure everyone remembers that.”

As an example of what can happen when you fail to seize the high ground, look no further than such historic events as the Battle of Gettysburg or, even more momentously, the final duel between Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi:

So remember: If there’s high ground, make sure you’ve got it. Until next week, this is Lulu, rolling over and out!

  1. Very good tip, Lulu. When you gets the high ground you’re also biggerer than everyone else and can look down on your minions.

    Are you sure Penny was your assistant for this though, or did she just beat you to it? 🐾🐾🐾
