Hi Friends –
We gotta talk!
Can you believe my new Mom and Dad, who I was just getting comfy with and falling in love with after three weeks together, LEFT ME HOME while THEY went on vacation last week?!
I wasn’t sure what the heck happened to them, but thankfully my new brother was here to take care of me. Problem is – he goes to work all day, and I was left home alone for 8 hours ALL BY MYSELF for the first time ever ever ever – here in Mars.
It was kinda scary, and I didn’t know what to do.
The first day I did find a cute little teensy weensy little wooden lamb, which is part of one of my Mom’s little Noah’s ark displays in the dining room, that was really tasty. You guys like lamp chops – right? It kinda tasted like that, except a little bit more splintery, so I spit most of it back out.
The second day, I was really missing my Dad, so I decided to just chew a tiny little bit on his shoe. It smelled good and made me feel better like as if I was with him.
By the end of the week, my brother must have really missed being with me as much as I did with him, because he got to work from home. YAY!
We had fun – well – I did anyway. I kept bugging him to go outside and play. The bonus of it was that he learned he could trust me outside in the yard ALL BY MYSELF while he worked. I’m a really good boy and stay in the yard. (You guys have seen those nasty red flags – right?! As long as you don’t go near them – life is grand!)
My Mom kept calling my brother to see how I was. She was worried about me, because, after all, I am her baby (HAHA Nick!). I kept trying to tell him to tell her to get home, but I just couldn’t seem to communicate it to him. I tried mostly at night…. in the middle of the night mostly…. (Isn’t that when you get the loneliest?)
Like at 1:30 am…
or 2:15 am…
or 3:45 am…
Finally, my brother would get out of bed at like maybe 5:30 am and stay up.
Those other times, he would take me out and think I had to go potty or something. I didn’t. DUH!! I just wanted to play! Heck – I slept all day… (and I did keep my Dad’s chair warm and smelling nice so it would really be perfect for him when he FINALLY got home!)
When Mom and Dad came home – after a LOOOOONG week (You guys know how long that is – right? Seven – that is S-E-V-E-N DAYS!), I thought I was seeing things! I looked at them…. I wanted to be excited, but I thought maybe I was just hallucinating – maybe delirious with grief. But… when I got a little closer and sniffed and then jumped into the air onto them, I realized it REALLY was them! They were HOME! Finally HOME!
I’m not straying too far from my Mom’s side this week. Maybe if I watch her very carefully, she will not do that again!
Thanks for listening, friends, and sorry to whine a bit, but it was a heck of a week!
I’m doing really great now (with the exception of a little accident here and there – SHEESH – I am still kind of a baby and this is still kind of new!). My Mom keeps telling me she loves me and what a good boy I am :). I know this, but it is nice to hear a couple thousand times a day – right?!
And she sings me my favorite song:
I love you –
a bushel and a peck…
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.
She sings SO Beautifully! Even though my Dad says I’m the only one that thinks so.
Thanks to so many of you for asking my Mom if I can be a regular here! If you keep urging, she may let me continue! <doggy wink!>
Woofs & Hugs,
