Tenacity is the key to success

ImageIn my home, there is this curiosity called a “curio cabinet”.  Inside are even more curious things.  Arrowheads, tiny birds nests with tiny eggs,  collectibles, you get the idea.  Really cool stuff.

Last week I noticed the cabinet for the first time.  It wasn’t such a big deal to me on the first pass.  But, about the third time past it, I had this burning desire to get in there.  There had to be something inside that thing that I could just not live without.

Standing on the glass with my front paws wasn’t getting me any where.  I jumped at it to knock it over- this MO usually works.  Once it’s on the ground, it’s mine.

Just as I was starting to smell sweet success, my mom notices my intense interest.

Can you say kill-joy??

She hops right up and put this velcro thing through the handles.  Now how am I, a Griff with no opposable thumbs, going to get past that, I ask you?  I gave it my best and wasn’t giving up.

Mom finally took a perverted sort of mercy on me and dragged my little body away from the cabinet and snuggled me on the couch, cooing what I guess were words of comfort.

We are not done with this chapter.  I’m sure there are things in there that are much more fun than snuggles.  I will prevail.

About onecoolgriff

Hello to all my friends! My name is Rambo and I'm a Petite Brussels Griffon living in Michigan. My family is a bit diverse, and we love all the exciting things that can happen when you live in a small zoo. Included in my family are five dogs (two more Griffs, although Pearlie Blue is really a Pug-Griff I think, and Jemmie the diva; Atticus the Rottweiler aka Atticus the Bratticus, and Buddy the incredibly-old-but-still-getting-around whatever kind of dog), two cats that the peeps call Barn Cats, making them a bit more mysterious than a "regular" cat; three VERY BIG horses, and of course my two peeps, Mom an Dad. I love being a little Griff in a big world. Everyday is an adventure and my job is to find the usual things and make them unusual. Never a problem! I'll be sure to let you know whenever I find something new and exciting.
