Lake Life, Chloe Style
Once we have had our coffee and written the blog post, it is time for our walk. Really, I think she would read forever if I didn't make her go every day. Geez! There is always a lot of things happening on these walks. I have to be very watchful and protective in this unfamiliar territory. I stick very close to her because you never know what might jump out from the bushes and attack!
When we get back from our walk, I get a big drink and then she puts down that bowl of disgusting dog food. Even though she tries to make it a little more palatable by adding a few pieces of Pupperoni, it really doesn't help. And who in their right mind would eat that stuff with all the delectable delights waiting for me around the resort. I'll wait for the short walks around the place as she goes and visits friends. If I play it right, there are lots of treats coming my way and I won't have to eat the dog food. And if there aren't treats coming my way, there is always the tasty toad jerky that I find in the road!
The grandkids are coming this week. That's always fun. They love me lots, so I gets plenty of petting and hugs. Plus, those kids aren't very watchful of their food. If I can't eat cookies or hotdogs out of their hands, there's always the crumbs on the floor. Yum! They also bring my friends Zoe and Bella, so I have someone to play with and dig holes with.
When she comes back from wherever she goes without me, it is time to sit outside. Sometimes it's just the two of us. Sometimes she takes me to a friend's house. I really don't care what we do, just as long as we are outside. There's always people around to pet me and play with me. And I can always start a new hole if I get bored.
Later, we head into the trailer and she lays on the couch and reads her darn book. I try to get her attention by throwing toys at her and jumping on top of her. This usually works and she tosses the toys for awhile. Sometimes, though, she gives me a big bone to chew on. That's the best! Later, I try to get her to go to bed at a decent time by jumping up on the bed and going to sleep, but she just ignores me. When she does finally come in the bedroom, she makes me get down! Really! I don't understand why, because without Dad here there is plenty of room for me. Ah, well. The blanket she gives me is pretty comfy.
Well, that's the post for today. Another job crossed off my list. Let's see, hmmm, must be time for our walk. See you later.
