Occupy the Couch for Mr. Pip!

The abuse that is rampant in the dog community is astounding. Now it appears that the hapless Mr. Pip has had his beloved couch moved to the basement leaving him with nothing but a hard wooded floor upon which to lay his weary self.

Well, this cannot be tolerated and he has organized an Occupy the Couch protest. For sure.

Naturally, Pea and I are totally there in doggie solidarity.

That's right, little black buddy, get your labraself onto the couch. It's for Mr. Pip!

Momma was all like "Oh Dexter, I need to clean the couch, please stay off of it for a bit." But he was totally, "No, way, crazy witch lady, I am needing to stay on my labracouch until justice is served."

Makes my heart proud to see him all perched there on the cushions.

And what of the Mango? Being unable to actually place my large and wishing couches did not have legs self on top of the furnitures, I am making due with occupation of momma's favorite comfy chair by my large and not going anywhere soon noggin.

Take that!

Click here to visit Mr. Pip and join in.

Do it for Mr. Pip! Do it for all dogs everywhere.

Justice will be served!

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Oh Mango, Dexter is doing a great job of taking over the couch but your occupation of the chair is priceless.

If that doesn't get Pip a couch soon, nothing will.

Mango! Dexter! I must admit, you shouldn't call your sweet momma a witch!! heeehee!!!!! Naughty boys!


Bouncing Bertie said...

I have already joined in this protest and sent Pip an appropriate photo, although I am now wishing that I had followed Dexter's lead in the masterful deployment of cushion resources.
Toodle pip!

HoundDogMom said...

We have joined in on this for sure. We have finally found something that we are really really good at. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

P.S.. Seriously Mango, you cannot get on the couch? That is really sad. :(

Jake of Florida said...

We ate definitely champeen couch (and chair) occupiers. Not only do we occupy them, we make such comfy nests out of the pillows that others -- such as the humans who inhabit our residence -- cannot sit on said couches until they remove all our handiwork and get everything back in order.

Wirey woofs of solidarity with PIP,

Jake and Just Harry

Amber DaWeenie said...

Yup...we joined in da protest too. Mango, da couch would probably collapse if you dragged your big butt onto it...so da head on da chair is just as good!


Corbin said...

Dexter sure is showin' that momma of yours!!! GET PIP A COUCH! GET PIP A COUCH! GET PIP A COUCH!

Frankie Furter said...

Divan or Sofa.. a couch by any other name.. does CUSHIN the same.

Justice fur our Furend.

All Paws in the Air fur PIP

Pea! You have a most impressive couch-laying technique. Mom only let us glance at the screen for fear that we would get ideas... Mango? You need a whole chair to support your RH and Relentlessly Handsome head? WOWZERS!!

Grab this by the neck and shake it - we aren't ALLOWED on the couch.

Don't listen! We need to stay on the couch

Brilliant efforts on both your parts! So glad to see you and the Pea working together on this needy cause!

AbbyTroubleandBrogan said...

Fight the man! Occupy couches, chairs and rugs everywhere....vive la revolution!

Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

I must admit after 4 1/2 years I am discovering the delights of the couch. Mom has never kept me off it - I just never showed in interest it - preferring a nice floor instead. But seeing how the Wuzster hasn't figured out how to jump on it, it has become my safe haven away from him.

Glad you liked your card - it must of done a lap around the USA before getting to you - cause we sent it like 2 weeks ago!

Sue said...

We knew we could count on your to join the occupation. Way to go.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Way to go Uncle Mango and Dexter. Poor Pip. Fancy having to sleep on a cold, hard floor. Totally unfair. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Glad to see you two are in on the movement! Riley (although currently occupying only her crate after surgery) is in on the movement as well. Poor Mr. Pip...his momma just assumes he's got enough fur to cushion him on that dastardly hard wooden floor. Poor guy.

Elyse and Riley

Maggie and Mitch said...

You got the life, Dexter!
We sure wish we were allowed on our couch!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Since no couch is safe from the animal occupants of this house, I must go over and speak for the cause. Mr. T and I are definitely the 99% in this household. Ann TBL

KB said...

You two have gone beyond the call of duty. Seeing Dexter's "Labraself" atop all those cushions made me laugh!

houndstooth said...

We are definitely occupying the couch! Not only do we have to support Pip, but it turns out puppies have sharp teeth and are obnoxious!


Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

"Will you join in our crusade..." [That's from Les Miz, for the 1% of you who didn't immediately start humming.] Looks like just about everyone is pitching in. Abby also lies on cushions on the couch; mama just sticks them under the coverup in the vain hope of prolonging their little stuffed lives.

Kudos to the RH for expanding the protest to include all the comfy chairs! Next target: the peeps' beds. Not until the peeps have to lie on the cold, hard floor will they truly grasp the horror of Mr. Pip's situation and apply the appropriate remedy.

I keep reading about this protest. I must join. In fact I will jump on there right now! Yes! Just been reading about your trip to the vet. We seem to be in the same boat with your pawly feeties/legs don't we? I got some extra tabs when we went and stupid Misery left them in Spain :D

They gave me my account back, but we were so annoyed that Misery is determined to stick with WP now. Hmm, my new blog is in you Google reader? I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing!!


roughseasinthemed said...

Oooops wrong log-in. Stupid Misery. She needs to sort out her schizophrenia better than that.


Maggie Mae said...

Yay fur helpin' Pip and his movement. Max and me is still tryin' to figure out a way to sneak up on our couch AND get a foto to send to Pip, but it is not workin' out fur us. :(

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Priscilla said...

I don't like the couch at home as it's leather and it's too hot for me. I think the humans should change it to something else that suits me ASAP.


Hudson said...

We too encounter this kind of absurdthinking at our house as the resident humans don't understand our necessity of occupancy of the back of the couch. Hello how else would we be able to keep a steady eye on our enemies of the backyard. The frickin squirrels and rabbits would surely over run our yard within days. So therefore who needs fluffy back couch cushions. There worth is truly overrated....I'm in on the solidity of this whole situation. This women you speak of sounds way to much of a clean freak....hello a little dog hair adds so much ambiance to a home!!!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Hmmm. We don't actually occupy the couch much, as Mom and Dad relax in bed (something to do with Dad's back/neck), but we'll totally occupy the bed as a sign of solidarity! BTW, your head is probably bigger than all of Mr. Pip so you are definitely doing your part! :-)

I would be more than glad to be a couch potato to defend Mr. Pip's right to have a couch somewhere besides the bowels of the house for him to rest his weary bones upon. It got me thinkin' though that I, bein' a labradork and in need of a place to float, I have asked forever and a day for my own swimmin' pool and have yet to receive one or even have a neighbor put one in for my Big Brown self. Can we have a swim-in to help my cause? I know Pea is on board with this - mebbee you can just hang your relentlessly huge noggin' over the bathtub wall, Mango.

We have yet to enjoy the comfort of a sofa or a nice big armchair. Such a waste having them if you ask us, they are empty all day! No hooman rears sit on them till night time.

Mr. Pip said...

Thank you, fellas! I am sorry I am SO LATE, but I was afraid to leave my post for fear they might throw my stuff out! Can't be too careful these day! I just know with your support I will prevail ...

Your pal, Pip

Marjie said...

Mr. Pip must surely appreciate your support!

Totally impressed pea! I Occupy couches but have never shown such creative use of cushions. Mr puppy an used to do that o e of the cushions but he was not a sprawled like you! RH nice effort! I bet you left a puddle too! I only lay like that when momma is on the couch with snacks which is kinda a lot!
