What If Cats And Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day


I'm interrupting my usual Wordless Wednesday post to let you know that today is, "What If Cats & Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs" day. Seriously. This is a real holiday. Mom read about it in the newspaper then we looked it up on the internet. You can read about it here. So I asked myself, what would I do if I had thumbs. Well, I think thumbs are overrated, but I guess if I had one I could hitch a ride south and get some SUN!

Brrrr. Turn up the heat. It's freezing in here!


So furiends, what would YOU do if you had thumbs?

Haha what a hilarious holiday! If I had opposable thumbs, I would help myself to food all the time, go outside by myself...
You look so cute in your bed, Bijou!

My Dog!
If we had thumbs there would be no stopping us, we could drive to the pet shop, open our purse and buy our own treats and food. There would be no need for humans at all! Except they give good belly rubs and kisses and we really love them.....
Ah, who needs thumbs anyway!

I think I would twiddle them. I've always wondered what that would be like. Hang on Bijou... it's gonna warm up this week.

I think if Rugby had thumbs, he would go visit his girlfriends and take his own pictures!!

Draco and his Mom said...

hahaha good day for us petsters...if I had thumbs, I could pinch my mom instead of just paw at her when I want to play tug. Also, I could get in the fridge and have good food instead of the crap she makes me eat. I mean really, those kibbles or cake, what would you pick? Mom said thanks for the grin.
Wags,
Draco
