Mr. Fox goes to Salem part 1

As any good stuffie does I always want to give back to my community.  I happen to know there are many stuffies out there who do not get the adventures, outings, or blog posts that they all deserve.  Well friends, this injustice stops NOW!

I have decided to take my concerns to the top.  Not my county representative, not the mayor, that's right I am going straight to the governor.


Before I go to Salem I should probably make an appointment with the governor (best not to show up on her doorstep uninvited). Let's see I found her website easily but they sure make it tough to get a phone number to call her.  I will have to dig further.


Before I go I will need an agenda of what to bring up with the governor.  Here is my list of stuffie rights so far, perhaps my blog pals can give me some more suggestions to bring up with the governor.

1) Hot chocolate and cookies at least three times a week in the summer, five times a week in the winter.
2) Proper and timely payment of all construction/supervision invoices when presented to humans (still haven't been paid for this work yet).  Hmm, I wonder if there is a construction board I should visit as well on my trip to Salem?
3) Adventures (and blog post) at least once a week
4) My roommates came up with one, community service once a month

  1. I take it we're not talking about Salem, MA? Heh-heh. I would try to negotiate for at least two adventures a week, at least! As for Item 4... Community service for the humans is a beary good idea. Hmph. I do think that perhaps wardrobe should be added to the list... you know, a new scarf or hat or something. Fashions do change. I also think salmon and/or chicken and/or bacon (depending on the stuffie) should be added - served at least 3 times a week.

  2. Oh yes, Salem, Oregon, not Massachusetts.

    A wardrobe should be added especially one that changes as fashion does and with the seasons (beary important for a stuffy who lives in extreme climates).
    Two adventures a week is a good idea, I think I will ask for five adventures when I meet with the governor then if she wants to negotiate I have a high number to start with.

    In regard to the food, should I push for organic and free range (or wild caught) or should I just try and get favorite foods in the law?

    Wow, lobbying is hard work.

    1. Thanks guys! I was thinking of adding a demand for an international trip at least once a year.

  5. Good idea - always start high and then you can settle in the middle somewhere. I would say favourite foods... if you get too specific then you're not leaving it open that say.... you might develop a strong liking for fried liver at some point. Better to be broad on that one!

    1. Keeping it vague is a good idea as well. I don't think I will start eating any fried liver but it's good to have options.

  6. Person took me to the Capital Building in Salem earlier this year but we did not see the Governor. International trips are beary important I think.
