Ernie, I think it’s time I give you a lesson on how to hide under a blanket.

Do you think you can help me, Wally?

Well, I can try.
Why don’t we start by you showing me your hiding technique?


How’s this, Wally?

No!  No!  No!  You’re doing it wrong!
I know you got big feets,
but you gotta keep them under the blanket!
Here…let me show you.


See??  You gotta keep your feets and tail tucked in.

Oh I get it, Wally.
But what about your head?  I can see it!

That’s so I can talk to you…
you gotta keep your head covered, too.
Now you try it again.


Is this better, Wally?

YES!  Now you’re getting the hang of it!
I guess you’re not as stoopid unteachable as I thought!

  1. Thank Cod! Wally, Ernie is lucky to have you. Keep working on him and I’m sure he’ll get it!

  2. Oh Wally it seems you have your work cut out for you there with young Ernie! Keep up the good work and Im sure he will have it mastered in no time xx

  3. Doesn’t Ernie pay attention to what you’re telling him Wally? Give him a whap or two that might make him listen.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. they say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but i guess in your house you can teach your brother a thing or two.

  5. We had a lot fun watching your lesson.

  6. Great lesson Wally. Looks like your brother will be a master of disguise in no time!

  7. MOL. This serious of photos and dialog had Mom LOLing like crazy. Wally is a smarty-pants and so generous to teach Ernie his tricks. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  8. Oh, I know JUST how you feel. Often when I hide under somethin’, there will be a bit of me stickin’ out. The tip of my tail is the usual culprit. Gives me away every time! purrs

  9. MOL MOL great teacher and observant student.
    When I try to hide my tail always gives me away.
    I’m going to practice your method.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  12. Now tell Ernie to stay under the blanket for a few hours (or days) Wally…as part of his learning curve!! 🙂 Heeheehee. 🙂

  14. Thats a great job!

  15. You sure are a good blanket-hiding instructor, Wally! What a difference you have made in Ernie’s blanket-hiding skills from the start to the end result. You get an A+ in teaching and Ernie gets an A+ for most improved.

  16. Wow!!! Ernie is such a fast learner! That is not an wasy tech-nick!

  17. Lo, we meant to say easy ^ , not wasy.

  24. Wow, we learned so much just from your post! Now we just have to practice until we’re as good as you are!

  25. Ernie, it is a good thing Wally is giving you some suggestions! I did not want to say anything but you needed some direction.

  26. Good job Ernie, you got it now. Good hiding. Wally is a pretty good teacher. Bet we won’t be able to find you now. Hope all have a great day.

  27. Great job Ernie, remember though, you have a big advantage over Wally. You can always hide in the shadows but how do you hide the sun….(Wally)!=^Y^=

  28. Oh my…I feel as though I can do this now! Fanks Wally. xxoo

  29. You are a great teacher and hey I couldn’t see you there.. Hugs GJ xx

  30. You got it purrfectly at last 🙂

  31. Wally, you did very well to teach Ernie the right way to hide.

  32. It’s an art form!! Wally you should charge for teaching. In fact you should give classes!!

  33. Ernie we think you got it down paw!

  34. Oh Wally, that’s a big job you took on-your a good teacher/brother.

  35. Now see, that’s why I am an only child. The Human does not want any Wally-types around giving me advice on how to be even more irritating.

  36. MOL! You are a good techer Wally!

  37. Oh MOUSE-DROPPINGS! You mean its been our wayward TAILS alla time givin us away?

  38. High paw, Ernie! I knew you could do it.

  39. Ducky is good at getting all hidden. Derby, bigger than Ducky, not so good.

  40. MOL! We loved seeing your lesson and now we can’t wait to see how long Ernie remembers how to hide!

  41. We love brothers helping brothers. If only we could do the same here, but everyone leaves theirs tails hanging out! We have no teachers, only pupils.

  42. MOL! good job, Wally! we were takin notes too 🙂

    BTW, we have a new kitty joining the (extended) family. Please come and say mieow to little GiGi.

  44. What a great trainer 🙂

  45. You are such a good teacher, Wally! We think you finally have the hang of it, Ernie!

  46. that was a darned good lesson!

  47. Good job Wally even if Ernie doesn’t get it right at first.

    Thank you very much for your comforting words of sympathy in the passing of our beloved Chica.

  48. Meow! He listens! That is a miracle. My brofurs are all like blocks of concrete sheathed in lead with a coating of marshmallow…

  49. He did what yous said! Great Cod! That never happens at our house.

  50. Can I come over? The Human is sick sick sick and I am sooooo bored!

  51. MOL! MOL! MOL!
