Why Can’t We Be Friends?

Posted by & filed under my life, the puppy diaries.

As I watched Columbus interact with the animals and people around him today, the song Why Can’t We Be Friends? (here is the song on youtube) popped into my brain.

This is Columbus’ version….

Columbus & Max

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Max: because you’re big and smelly and uncoordinated and someone’s gonna get hurt and it’s not gonna be me….

 

Columbus & Gracie

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Gracie: because you are too unsophisticated for me.

Columbus: what does un-so-fist-ick-hated mean?

Gracie: go look it up.

 

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Koda: because I don’t need any friends.  I have my people.  And you are invading that space, frankly.  You already get too much attention from them because they say you are a puppy.  How long are you going to play that card, huh?  You got a good act going on, but I’m not falling for it. Plttttttt (gives Columbus a raspberry)

Koda (under her breath): what a neophyte!

Columbus: what does knee-oh-fight mean?  Is that the same thing as un-so-fist-ick-hated?

Koda: oh brother.

 

Columbus & Stella

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Stella: because I’m your mother, that’s why!

 

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Kelly: we might be able to be friends but right now I’m eating my supper so go away.

Columbus: um. Can I have a bite of that kielbasa first?

Kelly: GO AWAY!

 

Columbus & Andy

Columbus: why can’t we be friends?

Andy: I’d love to be your friend, Columbus, and so would Chris….

 

Columbus & Chris

Chris: even though you are needy….
