Yes I am feeling merciful, and yes I am generally quite merciful to my very own beast. That would be mama. I am the only one with nuts in this household (she is nuts and I have nuts - we're quite a team).
A bit of majestic posing... get your thumbs out of the picture mama!
Here I am, thinking of ways to be merciful to my beast on this cold and rainy day. Hm. Maybe we'll only do an hour-and-a-half walk in the rain as she does look a bit bedraggled.
I don't want to be too merciful to you mama - you'll get all soft and squishy. I've gotta keep you in shape. For more walkies, of course. Yet I am merciful in my own way... my own incredibly cute way.
