This morning we had a glorious day with sunshine, warm temps, sunshine, a gentle breeze, sunshine and NO RAIN. Mom asked if we wanted to play outside and that was a no-brainer, of course we did.
As we ran out the door, Bailey grabbed Monkey. If it's raining Mom takes Monkey away from her at the door and leaves him inside, but today we had SUNSHINE so we all thought Monkey would enjoy it, too.
Once we got outside there were lots of fun things to do and Bailey started wishing she'd left Monkey inside so she could play with her sisters. She thought about leaving him under the tree, but what if Fudge got him and hid him again?
Tsar wasn't busy, so Bailey asked him if he'd watch Monkey. Tsar doesn't usually play with the others, he likes to sit around and observe nature. He seemed like the perfect babysitter.
I guess Monkey wasn't being a good boy. Tsar looked around to see if Bailey was watching, then he grabbed Monkey and disciplined him.
He carried him down the hill a little ways.
Then he shook him.
I guess Monkey fought back, because he went flying.
Then Tsar pounced on him again.
Monkey kept trying to escape.
But Tsar kept picking him up again.
I don't know what Monkey did to make Tsar so mad, but it was quite a battle.
It was a good thing that Bailey was busy and didn't see what was happening.
Mom was afraid that Bailey would try to rescue Monkey and get into a fight with big Tsar. Bailey is fearless.
Finally Mom put an end to the battle between Tsar and Monkey. She carried Monkey back to the house and put him inside. And what did Tsar have to say about all this?
"Don't bring your stupid monkey outside if you don't want to watch him!"
