A Day Of Thinking

Hi everyone. As you probably know, today is September 11th. If you live in the US it's kind of hard not to know what day it is because of all the memorial stuff they're doing on tv, on the radio and in the papers. Mom said she can't believe it's been 7 years since those planes crashed. Go to Asta's blog to see a really cool video about the dogs that helped that day. It's really cool.
Mom came home around 8:30 today and asked if we were ready and of course we were ready to do whatever she wanted to do! She grabbed the checkbook and the leashes so we knew we were going somewhere. We jumped in the car and were all excited and started driving and then Sasha and I started thinking about the last trip to the vet and how this seemed very similar. We started whining because we were worried. When we got to our destination I jumped out before the leash was on me which was really bad but there were so many smells! Mom came and grabbed be and hooked my leash on and I waited for Mom and Sasha. We went inside and right away Sasha knew where she was and wanted to leave. They took Sasha back and put her in a kennel and they took me and cut my nails. That's when I realized I knew where we were. Mom couldn't come back to where I was but the lady holding me was really nice and the guy was really gentle and fast. I kept looking back to Mom and she was smiling at me which helped a little. The groomer people are really nice and really good, that's why Mom insists on going to them even though it's a pain to get to their shop. Sasha had to stay, but Mom and I left. I didn't like that at all. Sasha is older than me so technically she's my big sister, but I'm lots bigger than her and I'm very protective of her. Mom kept telling me she'll be okay and I remember dropping her off after I got my nails done before, but I still didn't like it. On the way home I was looking out the window being very quiet and Mom said it looked like I was in some major deep thought. I was! There's been a lot going on at our house and in the world. It's a lot to think about! We found out this morning that my dad's uncle that lives near Houston isn't going to sit through the new hurricane like they did Rita. I have totally lost track of all the hurricane names because there's so many and that worries me alot. All my friends and even those that I don't know could get hurt in all those hurricanes! I don't like that thought at all!! Mom has been acting weird and has been making x's and counting on 2 pieces of paper and talking about pills she has to start taking and doctor's appointments and I have no idea what's up with that. Mom doesn't go to the doctor unless she's really sick. She's worse than Dad I think and I've been told that it's usually the man that is worse about going to the doctor! Gunnar has been grumpy lately and won't play with me as much. He says it's because Mom hasn't been sleeping good and she kicks him a lot. I told him to sleep inhis own bed then and that made him grumpier. Since Grandma started living with us, Mom thinks we've gained some weight and if Sasha has a belly after her grooming today (she was major overdue for her haircut so Mom couldn't tell if she had a belly or not) we might have to go on a diet!! That's torture for both of us and for Grandma, too!!!! The toads are driving Mom and Dad crazy in the back yard. Just when we think we've finally convinced them to relocate or not to come out until we've gone to bed, Sasha's chasing one around the yard! I'm trying to think of a way to make the toads go away. We would love them to stick around and eat all our bugs, but they need to stay out of the fenced area so Sasha won't go crazy over them anymore (Mom says she's obsessive and has toad breathe). See! That's a lot to think about!!!
Dad and Sasha should be home pretty soon so I'm going to go rest my brain for a few minutes so I can thoroughly sniff Sasha when she gets here to make sure Dad didn't bring home the wrong dog. He hasn't yet, but I don't want any imposters in my house where my sister should be!!

Oh that is a lot to think about. I hope you feel better soon.


Moco said...

There sure is a lot going on in your house. You are one busy pup keeping all that straight.

We have a lot of toads in our backyard too. We all like to play with them but that Louie always bites them and then foam comes out of his mouth. He looks like a monster... When will that kid ever learn?

Hi Kaos,
Hope your mom's ok... My mom's been busy marking 'X' on her calendar and popping pills too. I wonder what the women are up to..
Hmmm.. I am not sure about toads. Are they any fun??

The Girl said...

Wow, you've had a lot going on in your head.

I hate the groomer. The Girl says they are really nice and really good, but I hate all of the people there. Even though I get a cheese slice when I go to the groomer, I still hate them.

Brown dog kisses,
