My Camping Adventure!

Friday, my little human friends came home from school and everyone started doing weird things, packing food in boxes, putting my toys in a bag, and folding up my bedroom! They put me in the car with them and we drove for a long time. When we got out again, we were in a place with lots of dirt, trees, smells of other dogs, and it was dark outside!

Mom told me that we were CAMPING. After a little while, they put me in their little camper and let me lay down with the little humans while they watched TV. I was tired and fell asleep. Later, mom and dad let me sleep with them, something I never get to do at home! I snuggled up right next to mom. I was scared. This was just too weird. But mom made everything okay.

The next day, they made me stay on a lead tied to a tree, but I didn't mind because people kept sneaking me food all day. Mmm...a bit of egg and sausage. Some ham and cheese and peanut butter! Bread, I like that too. Plus I got to dig and roll around in the dirt. I like this camping thing. We went for walks in the woods and down a road where I could visit lots of other dogs, big ones, tiny ones.

I didn't want to play very much, except for tug. It's hard to play when you're tied to a tree. But there was so much to see! And people kept telling me I was such a good puppy. I didn't bark much, not much point in it, but it was fun to bark when all the other dogs did.

The second night I got to sleep with my little humans instead of mom. That was fine, because I wasn't as scared the second night.

Do I want to go camping again? Woof! You betcha!

 

Brushes are EVIL

I knew my day was going to be totally weird when mom didn't let me walk her to the bus stop with the kids, like we usually do. I like to see all of the kids on my street each morning, and mom needs her training. Mom said something about helping out at school, and they left without me. Oh well.

But when she came home, she told me I was stinky and GAVE ME A BATH. I know Labs are supposed to like water, but I'm only part Lab, and a bathtub just isn't the same as a mud puddle at the park! She tried to bribe me to sit still with a piece of cat food, which she knows I crave, but forget it. I don't like it THAT much.

And later, after I'd run around in the backyard for a while to dry off, she brought out THE BRUSH. Oh NOOOOO! What did I do to deserve THE BRUSH? Get it away from me! Cant' stand it! Cheese puffs? Not while you're holding THE BRUSH! That thing is EVIL, EEEEVIL I tell you!

I know mom was mad at me, but I just can't handle THE BRUSH. If she wants to brush some hair, hasn't she got her own? I know there's only the bit on her head and I've got it all over, but sheesh, leave my fur alone!

 

How To Train People

When I was on the farm with my mama and my brothers, I had no idea that I'd soon have to work as a People Trainer. If I'd known, I'd have asked Daisy the St. Bernard and Honey, the Spaniel across the street for tips.

First I had to make them get me my own bedroom. I did that by yelling a lot when they put me in the bathroom. My new room is right next to mom's desk and made of metal bars, so I can see everything. Next I had to make them get me LOTS of toys. Chewing up everyone's shoes works well for this, though I chew shoes for fun anyhow. I LOVE to chew. More pig ears, please?

These people are so worried that I'll pee on the floor that they tell ME when I have to go. Isn't that great? I just know I'm doing something right.

My next task is to teach my people how to walk properly on a leash. I pull and pull, but they just won't move when I want them to. Can't they see that there are lots of great things to smell out there? If they only knew what they were missing, staying on the path all the time! I think a nice romp through the pond at the park would do them good.

Well, it's bedtime now. Speaking of sleep, did I mention that I taught my human mom that the proper time to wake up is 6:00 a.m.? Without me, she might sleep another half hour, which would be a disaster!

Gosh, it's a good thing I'm here. Where would these people be without my guidance?
