Hi everyone. I have some terrible news. I have lost my driveway privelages for awhile. I always brag how I get to go hang out in the driveway and Sasha doesn't because I'm a good dog. Well, that isn't true anymore. I'm a bad dog, too! I know this is very surprising to all of you, but sadly, it is true. Mom said it broke her heart and Grandma was really sad when she foudn out, too! OH THE GUILT I AM FEELING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was hanging out with Dad in the driveway Saturday morning while Sasha and Mom were sleeping in and I don't know what came over me, but I saw a dog across the street at the highschool with his owner and I went running after them. I wasn't in play mode, either, I was going to fight the dog! I don't know what came over me!!! I didn't turn around when Dad called for me, I was going after that dog. Dad caught up to me and carried be back home. He was so mad he CARRIED me!!! I had to spend all day in the house laying down. ALL DAY!!! Mom took me outside to potty a few times, but the rest of the day I was laying down inside. I hate that, especially since Mom and Dad were working outside all day!!! Mom and Dad went to get hotdogs for lunch at a new place that my Mom now says is her favorite restaurant. They brought them home and Sasha got the last 2 bites of Mom's hot dog and I got NOTHING!!!! I was so sad!! Later in the afternoon, Mom had a nose to nose talk with me about how bad I was. I gave her tons and tons of "I'm SOOOOO SORRY" kisses and hugs. She said she was very sad that I couldn't be trusted in the driveway anymore and that made me feel even more guilty! I spent the rest of the day inside layng down and any time Mom or Dad were in the room, I'd show how sorry and guilty I was by only wagging the tip of my tail. Right before dinner, Dad got down on the floor and had his nose to nose talk with me. I told him how sorry I was and how bad I felt and he said he still loved me. Both Mom and Dad said they couldn't believe I would do that because that's not me. We also live on a busy street so running out like that is VERY bad. I told them I understood and I would try not to let it happen again. Dad said I have to stop barking at people that are over at the highschool because they are across the street and not bothering my house. I still think they are a threat to my house and they should be barked at immediatly, but I'm trying to be better about it (it's VERY hard though). Mom an Dad had pizza for dinner that night and I got some pizza crust which was nice. I still wish I could have gotten hot dog, but after talking to Mom and Dad, I realize I didn't deserve any treats.
Sunday Dad had to work which totally sucked but Mom was home and she made a bunch of cookies. Mom loves to bake and hasn't been able to in a long time beause of working on the house. She got a new cookie press awhile back and hasn't been able to test it yet, either. She made a lot of cookies and Sasha and I helped. Mom is a very sloppy baker. We cleaned brown sugar, sprinkles, sugar cookie dough and some crumbs up off the floor. We were helping her make sure the house stayed clean for showings this week. Once in awhile we'd go lay under one of the ac vents, but as soon as we heard Mom say woops, uh-oh, OH CRAP or dang it, we came running. Mom laughed every time we did it. She had read a few days earlier another article on how "dumb" dogs are. She said that the authors of those articles need to spend the day with us. Mom was really careful when making her famous chocolate cookies. They are very yummy - from what we hear. She woulnd't even drop a crumb on the floor for us to try!
I'm going to go lay under the ac vent some more. It's been really hot here. Not as hot as where some of you live, but too hot for me. It's so warm that we're in a flood warning and not because of rain. It's because the snow is melting so fast on the mountains, it's making the Arkansas River (which goes through our town) very very full and it's running really really fast. We're in a flood warning because of snow all this week! How crazy is that?!?!?!
