So last weekend I saw all this going on. I was so excited, jumping up and down and barking to show them how happy I was. Finally, Dad told me to come with him and out we went to the van. I love going places in the van. I can stand up and walk around. I can look out the windows and sit in the front seat (if Mom isn't around).
We didn't drive very far. Only a couple of blocks and we stopped. When we got out I was so happy. We were at the lady who gives me a bath and cuts my toenails. It's always fun when I get to go there. But I couldn't figure out why Dad brought my toys and my blanket. And then I realized THEY WERE LEAVING ME HERE!
I don't want them to know, but I kind of like getting to stay there. There is Girl, a Black Lab that is my BFF. She gets kind of lazy sometimes, but she can be a lot of fun to play with. And the people there take me outside a lot and play fetch and stuff with me, so it's really an OK place to have to go.
But I still pouted when they came to pick me up TWO DAYS LATER! Really. Can you believe it. They left me for two days. Isn't that some sort of animal abuse or something? I wanted them to know that I wasn't very happy, so I just laid around and whined. I didn't eat. I didn't play. Because of course, they had to go to work the next day and I had to be home all by myself. They should have just left me at the other place.
My pouting must have worked though, because this weekend I got to go shopping with Dad. He put my blanket in the van, BUT NO OVERNIGHT BAG! I knew we were just going to have fun. We drove for awhile and I came up and got in the front seat for awhile (don't know where Mom was at). We went all kinds of places, so I got to watch a lot of people coming and going. Dad doesn't think I bark when we go on our trips, but I do sometimes when I want people to come and talk to me. When I go with Dad he buys me stuff too. I got a brand new collar (Bright Red--I'm not sure it really goes with my strawberry blond fur, but it is pretty) and a leash to go with it. He also bought me a huge new bone to chew on. Can't wait to get going on that thing!
Sunday was a pretty good day too. Mom played with me outside a lot and even when no one was outside, it was really nice. I took a couple of naps laying in the sun. Need to work on my tan before lake time, you know!
Well, that's about it for now. Don't know when I will get to talk again, but thanks for telling Mom to let me write once in awhile.
Puppy Kisses to you all,
