Well today started off good enough. Except I had to spend extra time in my kennel while Mom was away. Not fair. All because she thinks I'm going to be sneaky and try and snatch those dog goodies off the island in the kitchen. *Sigh* Then she comes home smelling like cats. I don't get it.
As she promised, Mom did take me to Riverfront Park again for a walk. Except it was getting late (and therefore dark) and I was cold. So it was shorter than we both would have liked but at least we got to go. I got to be on the 10-foot mutant leash again so I had more freedom to sniff and wander.
Mom got home and was all ready to order her special Christmas Eve dinner but apparently all the food places were closed. So now Mom has no special dinner. . .she isn't happy. I tried to comfort her but she shooed me away. :( Maybe when she calms down I can join her on the couch and make her feel better. I know this is her favorite Holiday but it seems to just make her sad. I don't know how it can be her favorite then. I'll be here for you, Mom, when you're ready.
I did get to open my pressie from Mom this morning. Square gifts are hard to open! I did have fun chewing on the corner of the box. Mom helped me get more of the paper off and I went to town on it a bit more. But still, chewing that corner was more fun! So Mom finished the job. I got a cover for the back seat of the car. This should work better than the blanket which always ends up bunched up back there. Mom likes to give me functional gifts. I'll have to wait for Santa Paws to arrive to see if I get any toys from him!
