Lulu’s Life Tips: What To Do When Your Friends Aren’t Around

Hello friendlies! Lulu here, with another life tip! This one doubles as a Lawn Patrol video, so I’m killing two birds with one stone!

Chaplin: “Don’t throw stones at birds. We like to watch them.”
Lulu: “It’s just a figure of speech. Like letting the cat out of the bag.”
Charlee: “You don’t have to let me out of the bag. I’ll come out of it when I’m good and ready.”

Anyway, today’s life tip is about what to do if you go to where your friends can usually be found, but they aren’t there. Here’s a video demonstration where I go look for my friends the gophers, but they’re nowhere to be found.

Charlee: “I’m not sure the gophers would agree with your characterizing them as ‘friends’.”
Lulu: “Friends, playthings. Potato, po-TAH-to.”

So what do you do in that kind of situation? Well, watch the video and find out!

That’s right—if you can’t find anyone to entertain you, you can always just go find a sunny spot and lie down and get a nice belly rub and chin skritches.

Charlee: “That’s all well and good but what if you can’t find someone to give you belly rubs and chin skritches?”
Lulu: “Well, then you’re probably not a dog.”
Chaplin: “My bag now. Get out.”

Charlee does raise a valid point! If you can’t find a sunny spot and/or belly rubs and chin skritches are unavailable, you can always try shredding some cardboard or barking at nothing or running around the house like a lunatic. There are many options.

Charlee: “All those options still seem to be contingent on being a dog.”
Lulu: “They always say you should write what you know.”
Chaplin: “Pipe down out there. Some of us are trying to sleep.” (beat) “Hey, is it starting to rain in here a little?”

Then again, you could always get a bucket of ice cold water and make your own excitement. This is Lulu, rolling over and out!

  1. Your Dada’s a great belly rubber, Lulu. We’re all very impressed with the bucket of ice water. We thought only cats did nefarious things. It seems there’s more to you than first appears. XOX Xena, Lucy and Chia


  2. We agree, a comfy grassy spot and a belly rub are good alternatives to those gophers. We don’t know if we have any in our yard, but we have four little bipeds up the hill who love to come and run the fence with us. Mom likes that we get the exercise, but Timber keeps trying to dig his way out to go back up the hill with the kiddos.

  3. Humans to the rescue! I like that you’re so good with finding your own fun, Lulu. Cost-cutting too because shredding stuff your Mama & Papa have already bought is freeee!


Leave us a woof or a purr!
