This is one of the many reasons why you should vote for Tierce in the Fido Casting Call contest. You can vote every day!
Tierce: What’s that?
Me: That’s you being full of artistic merit.
Tierce: That’s me staring at you contemptuously through a table.
Me: It’s full of artistic merit.
Tierce: You keep saying that. Do you even know what it means?
Me: It means that this picture got 44 ‘Likes’ on Facebook.
Tierce: Oh yeah. You’re obviously the next incarnation of Sister Wendy Beckett.
Me: It’s a nice picture!
Tierce: “Oh yes; the picture is evocative of the delicate balance between artistry and GETTING THE DOG OUT FROM UNDER THE TABLE SO THAT HE CAN HAVE SOMETHING – ANYTHING – TO EAT.”
Me: Tierce, you’re 28 pounds. You’re at least three pounds overweight and when you consider that you’re only 16 inches at the shoulder, that’s a lot.
Tierce: Oh, but you’ll sit there stuffing your face while I languish under the table.
Me: Your argument would be a little stronger if I hadn’t been pulling you in the bike trailer to and from the venue.
Tierce: And whose choice was that?
Me: It’s a good thing that your face doesn’t reflect your attitude or you’d look like that Chinese Crested mix who won The World’s Ugliest Dog contest.
Tierce: Speaking of contests, aren’t you tired of shilling me for the sake of your own ego?
Me: Not in the slightest.
