Property Rules

I got in trouble yesterday. I was playing with my baby and accidentally waved it front of Lincoln's face. Lincoln grabbed my toy right out of my mouth. It was completely unfair. So I lunged, growled and bit him in the face. We were not even playing bitey face. Mommy snapped around and swatted me on my butt and I heard the dreaded word....NO. I pouted. Lincoln got my baby and I got in trouble. So courtesy of the internet, I have found some property rules that I can live with. I plan on giving Lincoln a copy of these...

Minnie Moo's Property Rules...

1) If I like it, it's mine.
2) If it's in my mouth, it's mine.
3) If I had it a little while ago, it's mine.
4) If I can take it from you, it's mine.
5) If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours.
6) If it just looks like mine, it's mine.
7) If I saw it first, it's mine.
8) If it's edible, it's mine.
9) If you have something and put it down, it's mine.
10) If I chew something up, all the pieces are mine.
11) If I get tired of it, it's yours.
12) If I want it back ,it's mine.


  1. Well, what else was Minnie Moo to do? Every buddy needs to abide by your rules
    Benny & Lily

  2. Words to live by my friend, words to live by.

  3. Good for you to lay down the rules. Who knows if someone else will try to claim what is truly yours.

  4. Those are some pretty good rules! I hope Lincoln starts to play by the rules!

  5. Love your rules, They are all very true! I'm going to read them to Mack for sure. Make sure Lincoln reads the rules when you give him a copy!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  6. BOL!!!! Mommy is laughing over here 'cause she says that those rules look just like the rules I have for my foster brother Owen! However, I will share very nicely from time to time and we sometimes sleep in the same bed all night :) Great rules Minnie!

  7. You tell him who's boss. All girls should be the boss. That's a problem here, since 3 out of four pugs are girls.

  8. Minnie you tell him! You were there first so that means you're the boss!


  9. The funniest thing I read!! I'm going to print and pass out to all my doggie friends!!!! Thanks...and thanks for visiting us too!! See you soon.

  10. Minnie girl I am gonna use this with Sequoia and apply it to sitting areas such as laps and doggy beds!!!


  11. I love those rules, and I think every doggy would like those to be the rules in their house.!
    Toooo cute.. the two of you,,,, play tug of war with the little baby...
    I do not think you could get any cuter.... nope not at all.... so I bet moms was not mad for long!
