My day didn't start out very well, but it just kept getting better. Mama had her bug piled high with packages to send to Daddy and a bunch of soldiers in the Middle East. There was no room for me to go--and it's Friday--my go-to-school-with-mommy-day!
It seems that ALL of my furless pack were ASKING WHY I WASN'T THERE? "Where's Ginger?" "Why is Ginger at your house?" "Please go get her!" Mama finally gave in around 10:00 while the kids were in the art studio. She did a fly-by through the post office and came home to get ME!
Well, on the way out of the house, neither of us saw the mail man lurking just out of our sight, sorting through his mail. It wasn't the regular mail man who is my friend, but I pulled away from Mama while she locked the door, wagging my tail in greeting.
He hit me on the head with his bag! Well, I decided that I didn't like the bag, and attempted to grab it! Mama told me to stop and grabbed my leash; telling the man that I was being FRIENDLY. She was mad that he hit me, but now she's worried that he'll report me as being an aggressive dog and I'll be quarantined. I told her not to worry--I left no teeth marks on anything--not worth the bother of the paperwork involved.
Anyways--I WENT TO SEE MY CHILDREN! They were all so happy and hugged all over me! Gosh I love it when they let me be the center of their universe! I ate cheerios for snack, and then stayed for lunch. In addition to two pizza crusts, a dorito, and several goldfish crackers that fell on the floor, I got to lick out a strawberry yogurt container. My BIG SCORE was an entire half of a PB&J sandwich that didn't quite make it into the trash.
It was in my mouth before any grown-ups even realized it was on the floor!
Then everyone (including me) took a nap. In the afternoon our snack was pretzels and ranch dip in tiny little cups just perfect for me to lick cleans with a swipe of my tongue.
We went outside, and all of my friends helped me dig for chipmunks before going home.
I thought we'd do the same, but instead WE WENT TO THE THREE DOG BAKERY! I was beside myself with joy--more free food tastes and treats for the house! I met a Great Dane named Cicely and a King Charles Spaniel named Hoover. The new owners OFFERED ME A JOB AS A GREETER--imagine that! They were impressed with both my people and dog skills. Mama was flattered for me, but said that we lived too far away for me to accept. *Sigh.
Mama bought each of us girls a BUFF BITES Buffalo Baked Shin Bone--we were on a waiting list waiting for them to come in! Let me tell you--they are delish--more than worth the wait! Friends--tell your pawrents to be on the look-out for them! No preservatives nor added color/flavor--raised in Colorado by Rocky Plains, LLP. We are already on the list for the next shipment to come in! Right now Louise is asleep with her head lovingly draped over one end of her bone, while her paws are curled around the other end!
All in all it's been an awesome day! If it's nice tomorrow, Mama says we're all going for an adventure--I can't wait to see what it is!
