Again Mom had one of her trainings in Motivational Interviewing for LA Best Babies this last Friday. I was bummed out because I was not able to be the greeter, as we all know I do flawlessly. I ended up spending the day at The Wags Club.
But that is not the half of this week’s plight people!
Here’s the rundown: on Thursday night we were all getting ready for bed. I am growing up so after I go outside to do my nightly business I come back in and hang out in the living room. The parentals no longer tell me to get in my bed. Really what happens is they go to bed and shut off the lights. I get scared and come into the room and crawl into my bed all by myself.
Well you will not believe what happened! Mom was washing her face and Dad and I were almost asleep. Mom came into the room and woke Dad up saying someone was trying to get in the front door. Of course curmudgeon Dad responds with no worries – the alarm is on. Then all of a sudden there was a loud noise. I was not having that and ran out of the room with Dad in tow.
Dad looked out the window and can you believe who was there? CHRISTMAS KITTY! I cannot believe that thing was back and I was not happy because Dad felt sorry for the flea infested thing and went outside to feed it. I went crazy and am still upset with him.
Upset to the point I was holding a grudge and knew I had to pay him back. We all know that it is getting darker earlier as the season changes. We really do not have seasonal changes in LA, but during the wintertime I get up earlier and this morning was no exception. Of course Dad likes to have Mom have a chance to sleep in a little bit. But not this morning…
Squeaky squirrel was outside my bedroom window squeaking away. I had to get outside and so I faked Dad out. Got outside and he ran to the trees, and next thing you know I am barking full force at 6:30 AM Sunday…why you ask? Two reasons, the squirrel instigated it and all people need to be on my time!
Low and behold the day of rest turned into a fiasco! Next the dog from down the street got all in my front yard, which caused me to freak out. Then Dad is outside once again trying to save another animal. Then he brings Kojo into the backyard but I was not having any of this. I was barking, Mom was trying to sleep and Dad was attempting to be a humanitarian. Needless to say Mom got up and was outside in her PJ’s helping Dad since I had poor “play date behavior.”
Yep – you guessed it. I got a big “time out,” but right now I am doing pretty good. Mom is making more cookies for the gluten-free cookbook so that makes everything better, especially since I get to eat all the crumbs that fall on the floor. I’m excited since my dog cookie is due to be made next weekend so stay tuned!
