A Day In the Life of the Fizzy

Oh Boy...

Momma's really mad at me. REALLY mad at me.

See, Momma has this problem called "insomnia". She says that makes it really hard for her to sleep. Me, I don't have that problem. Neither does Daddy. We can fall asleep anywhere anytime. Not Momma. There can't be any noise or any light, and it takes her over an hour to fall asleep, even with her special magic pill she takes every night.

Anyfur, I kinda have early spring fever. Or cabin fever. Either way, I've been having the zooms a lot. Which makes me drink extra water, which Momma says is GOOD for the stones in my belly. What's NOT good is I gotta go peeps a lot more. But that's not a problem during the not sleeping times cause Momma doesn't mind letting me out every hour or so.

Except at night.

Now I can hold my peeps while Momma and Daddy are at school all day. I NEVER have accidents in the house cause I'm a BIG boy. So Momma thinks I should be able to hold my peeps throughout the night especially since she only sleeps about 6-7 hours a night and they're gone for over 8 hours at school.

But I have other ideas. Every night at 1:15 in the A.M., I start to woof at the front door. Momma knows the exact time because she looks at the clock every time. She's annoyed because she's JUST let me out at 11:15 in the P.M., so I shouldn't have to go. And oh yeah, she's JUST fallen asleep. So I bark. And bark. And bark. One night I barked until 4:20 in the A.M. She gets up at 6:25 in the A.M.

Momma USED to just get up and let me out, but one night while she was waiting for me she fell asleep on the steps for about 20 minutes while I roamed around the front yard. She says that scared her cause someone could pull up and steal me or walk into the front door, so she says she's not doing it anymore.

I was ok with that for a few weeks, but this week, for some reason, I just INSIST I have to go out! Last night Momma only got 2 hours of sleep because I barked so much. When her loud morning clock went off she leaked from her eyes. (She says Daddy is worthless with all of this because Daddy could sleep through World War III. If she tries to wake him up to let me out he just yells at me to come to bed then rolls over and he doesn't remember any of it in the morning.)

So after Momma dragged her leaky self out of bed she let me out then went into the kitchen to make her elixir of life or coffee or something. My neighbor was outside cleaning off his car so I started to scream and scream at him! Momma ran out from the kitchen and told me to be quiet and to go peeps. As soon as she walked back into the kitchen, I started screaming again. I don't remember what it was about but I was LOUD. So she ran to the front door AGAIN and yelled at me. This happened 2 more times, and boy she was leaking ALL OVER the place. I was just sayin good morning to the neighborhood...

Momma says she was so upset with me she forgot to take her sandwich maker into school and it's cooking week with her little humans and they couldn't make their cooking pizza sandwiches because she forgot the maker and she blamed ME.

Whatever. I was at home sleeping on the couch all day.

Anyhow, can someone tell me how to make Momma not mad anymore cause when she came home she kept saying how exhausted she was cause she's only slept like 10 hours in 3 days and now she has a cold which she's ALSO blaming on me cause she says she's "run down" (who ran her down??? A car??) and she's really cranky. Advice? Anypup?

Yikes, Fizzy, you better lay low for a couple of days. Give your Momma some time off. Let her rest.
It's not good to make them have the leaky eyes.
Maybe you and your Dad can have some Male Bonding time and let your Momma rest for awhile this weekend.

Zoe has a good idea Fizzy. Try to lay low and not bark so your momma can get some rest and fight off that nasty old cold.
