Opposable thumbs? Wouldn't that be great!

Today is a really big day - it's What if Dogs and Cats had Opposable Thumbs Day! Yeah, that's right!

Check out this cool cartoon and send it as an ecard to all your cat and dog loving friends wishing them a happy What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day!

So in honor of this wonderful holiday, I am listing (not in any particular order) what I would do if I had opposable thumbs. Ready, set, go!
  • I'd do my own typing and have my own computer, thank you very much - Mum is slow, and sometimes doesn't interpret well what I tell her. I want my own voice!
  • With computer access more readily available, I'd place an order with Clean Run right away, and get all the treats, toys, and agility gear I've always wanted.
  • With thumbs I could easily open the pantry and get my own food, anytime I wanted - Gracie, Wolfie and Wiggy are on their own.
  • I could click my own clicker when I get a trick right! Ha!
  • Changing the channel on the TV would be so much easier than using teeth, finally I could take charge of that darn remote.
  • Getting out of my crate would be a snap - never again would I have to wait for my turn at agility.
  • I could open my own door and roam the free world at will - staying close to my Mum, of course.
  • Taking pics of Mum when she's sleeping would be pretty fun, and video her while she's running could be veeerrrryyy interesting!
  • I could very well unclip my leash and be a free roamer on our long walks, now that I could go fur.
  • Maybe I would take lessons to learn how to drive the car...and then I could get where I want to go, instead of where Mum does. Would probably need Gracie's help with this, you in Gracie?
  • I could give the thumbs up when a cute girlie walked by.
  • Hmmm....I'd be so independent, maybe they would let me vote!
I'm sure Mum would have an opinion of what I should do with these wonderful new thumbs!
  • Clean up my own poo.
  • Set my own bars.
  • Take out the trash.
  • Rake the cat litter box with my thumbs instead of my mouth.
  • Brush my own teeth and trim my own nails (wouldn't mind do my own nails, may be safer, BOL!)
  • Have faster weaves...
  • Be her secretary for a change!
  • And I'm sure she would get me a paying job, so I could pay for my own agility. Oh, well, I'm a working dog.
So, everypup? What would you do if you had opposable thumbs? Let me know!
