Monkey on His Back

Nate has a green monkey that lately we have been throwing at each other. I don't remember how he acquired it, but it has been left downstairs for the past week. So far the dogs haven't touched it, that said the monkey's days are probably numbered.

Anyhoo we were discussing how it was cruel to dress up animals in absurd offits. Nate pointed out that I was always putting on hats on John and replied that John didn't seem to mind and I never forced the issue. Once he pawed it off it was over. Nate was then seized with the idea of putting the monkey on John's back.

He patiently sat there while Nate straddled the monkey on his back and stuffed it's front legs in his collar. He sat for a while and even posed for the camera. Then John wandered off with the monkey on his back, not particularly concerned about his passenger.

Poor John, he is such a good sport. I think Dell would lasted maybe five seconds.
