Don't be offended... it's just evolutionary behavior...

Momma, I see you were reading.  You left this on my I-PAD screen...

Dogs, But Not Wolves, Use Humans As Tools | The Thoughtful Animal, Scientific American Blog Network

Momma, if it makes you feel better, I NEVER, not once, not ever did I think of you as a "tool".

I love you momma. You are NO tool. Those guys don't have a clue. Honest. For realsies.

A tool is kept in a box, and only used when needed.  I need you ALWAYS, constantly even.

And a tool has a specific use function. Not that you are not functional. You are. OK, that did not come out the way it was intended. You are multifunctional. Like a Swiss Army knife!

That doesn't make you feel better? What will make you feel better? Wanna snuggle?

No, momma,  you are  wayyyyy better that a Swiss Army knife with 25 functions.  For openers you have ten amazing digits. And did I mention your thumbs? Love them!  I mean, technically  you could be called "staff" because you do so much for me, BUT much loved, much needed, very appreciated, staff. NOT A TOOL.

Stop wrinkling your face. I already said I love you. Awwwwe come here, snuggle me, I am offering up free belly, because I love you and I love belly rubs. And you have those digits which could be put to good use right now... rubbing my belly. Come on, it will lower your blood pressure, it will make us both feel better...

Oy, two leggeds,  masters at burying the obvious. It's all about their ego.  It needs more massaging than my belly... know what I mean?

'vie, who has to deal with "McNeedy momma "

Duh, of course we do. You know, we probably wouldn't do it if they weren't so darn easily manipulated! Whoops!

Badges!? Oh, good! We need stinkin' badges.
