My Diary

Tomorrow will be better....

Today was not a wonderday. A wonderday is any day my mom stays home from work and takes me for lots of walks, gives me a bath or chases me around the house until I'm outta breath. No, today was another not-so-good day. I got myself all worked up while mom was away and tore things up pretty good. I did this yesterday, as well...and one other time last week. Until this, I've been a model citizen--never once complaining or doing anything out of line when home alone. But, I've turned over a new leaf and need to let my mom know something is awry.

Part of the issue is that my command post provides an excellent view of Spa Creek and downtown Annapolis--as well as ducks, geese, seagulls, squirrels and ravens. But...they are all outdoors and free to cavort, squawk, scamper and waddle. While I am stuck inside. All day, for oh-so-long. Luckily, I can't tell time, but I do know my mom leaves me with a "bye bye goodie" when the I'm just getting interested in playing, and doesn't come back to hug me until it's time for my dinner. Yeah, it's true that I'm an independent kind of dude, but I want to be outdoors with all those other critters! Especially since we're having fine springlike days lately; there's just so much going on out there!! Instead of sniffing, snorting, peeing, poking and hunting...I just mope inside, listening to NPR, which mom leaves on to keep me company. Doesn't she know I'm tired of hearing about presidential campaigns, rising gas prices, suicide bombers and DC school problems?!? I want to run free!

So, that's why I'm rebelling. Mom's thinking of leaving the blinds closed, so I won't get so destructively agitated by all thats going on out there. But, sheesh, can't she see that what I really need is more attention, more mom time, more "good boy" training and, especially, more more more walks!

Hiya, MacDougall! Our secretary admired your picture in the daily diary list and said we gotta stop by his page and wish him "Congrats!" on being a diary pick today!
Sure glad we did, your iPad video is a hoot! Doesn't it make such delicious noises?! We had to give up on the exercise ball video, too many hits came up:(
Hope your ma can find out why you're so restless now and not have to close your curtains, bummer. I love sitting in my window seat and keeping an eye on the neighborhood, bol!
