After weeks and seemingly endless weeks of being kept in captivity like Rapunzel in the tower, the best thing that could possibly happen happened. OK I had to go through the indignity of having a bath (oh the horror!), but ultimately it was worth it:
The reason mummy is laughing is because I forgot to put on the brakes and crashed right into her.
Have a good day friday all!!
You may not believe it but I am still imprisoned – yes three weeks and counting:-( However, mummy has started taking me out at a more sociable time (although still on the lead down the cycle path). But this morning the best thing happened, we bumped into Bud: he is the wisest dog I know and seeing a friend has really cheered me up.
I met Bud when I was very little and first taken out for walkies. I was not impressed with the outside world, I would’ve much rather stayed inside with my toys. Mummy made me walk past scary noisy traffic, and I was sure one of those metal monsters was going to try to eat me! After a few minutes I couldn’t take it any longer and would stubbornly sit in the direction of home and refuse to move. She’d bribe me with treats, toys, encouraging words…but I would not be swayed – we mallies are known to be stubborn and strong-minded and I fully lived up to my breed-type! That is, until one day the most beautiful white German Shepherd I’d ever seen walked passed us with his human – it was Bud. He wasn’t phased by the traffic at all. And when I saw him I forgot to be scared, instead I decided to follow him in the hope that we could be friends! from then on everytime we went for walkies I would drag mummy down the road in the hope we would see him again. I must admit, I have a bit of a soft spot for Bud:-)
Seeing him today really made me smile and as he didn’t try to ‘get jiggy’ with me as mummy put it, she thinks my prison term maybe over very soon – hooray!
She did say something about freshening me up first. I hope that’s not a code word for bathtime!!!
I’ve had a strange few days, mostly because my human mummy has had something called a cold. It seems to involve her nose being wet, talking with a funny voice and making weird noises into tissues. The best thing about it is that she stayed home from work on friday, and we snuggled on the sofa together for most of the weekend<3 I hope she stays cold forever:-)
Then on saturday, the grass shrunk! I still don’t understand what happened to it, but my human daddy says with the amount of rain we have, it will soon grow back. Does that mean it fell out?? I’ll definitely have to keep an eye on that in future.
And yesterday, when my human mummy and I came back from our walk, we found ourselves locked out! She’d forgotten her keys and my daddy wasn’t answering the door. Would we have to live in a cardboard box?? Luckily after lots of knocking and calling, he finally answered. Apparently he’d fallen asleep! What a silly billy!
Today mummy went back to work:-( She still talks funny, but luckily my daddy is on holiday. He needs to wait in for the new dishwasher, which I find a bit offensive as I thought it was MY job to lick all the dishes…! Anyway, hopefully he won’t fall asleep and forget to feed me. Now that could be disastrous!
My human decided to take a ball along on our walk this morning. I thought this was quite sweet as it gives her something to do while I chase pigeons around the park. But the silly thing kept dropping the ball and looking at me as if she wanted me to pick it up for her. To be kind I did the first few times, and she was very grateful. But I really wanted to focus on the pigeons – I even got close a few times – so I couldn’t be bothered to keep retrieving her ball. I mean she wanted to take it along so she should hold on to it. Right?
This morning I encountered a disturbing scene. While taking my human for her walk, we came across a metal monster with orange flashing eyes. It made the most awful sound, but worst of all, it was stealing from every front garden! Every house had a box outside, which was similar to the storage box my humans keep my food in. So I can only assume it was taking everyone’s food!! I was outraged! I tried to bark at it, but I wasn’t loud enough over its overwhelming din. Meanwhile my human looked on in confusion. I had to take charge, so I ran back to our house, taking her with me. But alas we were too late: our box had been taken too. I’ll have to be on my guard in case it comes round again, and next time I’ll be ready for it!!
