Mom and Sister left us alone this morning with an admonition to be good.
When they got back, there was an extra person with them. Zoe got all silly and squealy. Drover was friendly and they both went right to the extra person.
Uh, I was confused. Here is an intruder in our yard. With our Mom and Sister. Shouldn't we be acting like we are going to get the intruder? But the intruder knew my name. I was the only dog barking. I was the only dog with my hackles raised. But the intruder knew my name. It finally started to register.
This was Brother. Oh yeah, I remember this guy. He didn't look much different than I was starting to remember. But he hasn't been here for a long time. It was kind of embarrassing to realize I was barking at a family member.
Everything turned out alright though. He came in and eventually sat on the floor. I came over and got reacquainted. He talked nicely and petted me. I relaxed and put my head on his legs. Until he told me they were falling asleep. Then I had to move.
I guess I should follow Zoe's lead in barking at intruders. She is a professional.
Dat r twoo, Tux!! Hur r pwetty gud at dat kinda stuffs!! Gwad e'vyfing r ok now ♥
Thats OK Tux! You finally remember who brother was!
Don't worry Tux, you figured it out! I bet the next time Brother comes home you will remember him right away.
Glad you finally remembered your brother - tell him you need even more pets not to bark next time!!
Aw, I've barked at dad and my boy on ocassion! It is a little embarassing.
Yeah, it happens to us all! We know so much stuffs we can't 'member it all in our brains! And I say better safe dan sorry!
