Hug O' War

We saw that some of our beans might have had their feelings hurt this weekend, and Meezer Mom had a great idea. She thinks it is time for Weekend Hugs again and we agree, so we are sharing one of our favorite poems that shows our feelings. We love you all and are sending out (((HUGS))) to all of our friends.
Hug O' War

by Shel Silverstein


I will not play at tug o' war.

I'd rather play at hug o' war,

Where everyone hugs

Instead of tugs,

Where everyone giggles

And rolls on the rug,

Where everyone kisses,

And everyone grins,

And everyone cuddles,

And everyone wins.

We aren't sure we like hugs but our mom & dad give them to us all the time, and we purr.

Awww. I love that poem. I think it could somehow get made into our new National anthem. (Well at least in the world of pets and pet lovers!)
