My mommy may want to start by my beginning but I want to start from the Hurricanes. First came Charley. I was excited because we were going to grandma's house. I love car rides and going to visit grandma. I love sight seeing, period!
Anyway, back to Charley. I remember going outside and the wind blowing harder than usual. I stuck my nose out to the wind (that's what I normally do, anyway) and I looked at mommy to question her. She just told me to do my pee-pee and quickly (she always does that). Then we went inside. I was sleeping when he hit. I woke up scared and went to mommy's lap. So did my sister, Tala. The wind was howling and I was trembling.... But mommy said we are OK, it's a hurricane, and it will pass.... Then mommy and grandma started scrambling because there was water coming in through the bathroom. I could see they were scared, too. And so were grandma's three dogs.
The next day, we went outside and I stuck my nose to the wind again. It was calm and I could see grandma worried walking around the yard. I could feel the air was different and there were things on the ground that weren't supposed to be there. But mommy made sure I walked to the safe spots. I love my mommy!
Then came Frances. Mommy told my sister and me that we were going to a shelter and that other dogs were going, too. Yay! I like meeting new friends! Anyway, we ended up going to the school that mommy works at. It was fun because I got to meet and play with new buddies. I didn't hear the wind howling or the rain pounding this time. But, every time mommy went to the grownup bathroom, she told everyone that she could hear the wind and the rain on the rooftop. I just stayed with my sister Tala, played and slept.
I did not like it because, after mommy took us outside to the bathroom on Saturday, we couldn't go outside until Sunday afternoon! And, I am sorry, I am NOT using the newspaper that grandma put out for the 5 of us. Where's the grass? I want the grass! I was good. I did not have one accident the whole time. I kept it and held it and was VERY glad when mommy said, "Yay! Babies, let's go outside to pee-pee and coo-coo!" Ahhhhhh....
Then came Jeanne. Grandma was in Puerto Rico so mommy had to doggy sit the 5 of us at grandma's house. I missed grandma but I stayed with mommy all the time. Mommy got sick after Frances and she is still a little sick. Something about bronchitis.... I don't like to see her that way so I snuggle by her and comfort her.
Anyway, back to Jeanne. Once again, we went outside the night before. Mommy did not sleep all night long. The phone kept ringing at all hours. A lot of people called to check up on all of us, especially grandma. And mommy kept getting up and checking if water was coming into the house. It did, but not alot like with Charley. Once again, the winds were howling and the rain kept coming. Mommy kept telling me it was going to be OK. But she didn't sleep for two days! We did. We all slept really close to her.
As soon as she saw that we could go outside the next day, we did. It was really scary, though, because the wind wanted to knock me over! My nose really shot up in the air that time! And so did all of the gray and white hairs on my body! And mommy wanted me to hurry up! Mommy, why did grandma nickname me, "Miss Universe"? Isn't it because I love taking my time and strolling in the sun and grass?
Once again, I am not going on the newspaper the other dogs go on! I neeed my grass!
Hurricanes are scary! Mommy, are we done with them yet?
