I had such a great day yesterday! Mommy had the day off and she had no errands that she had to run so she got to spend the entire day with me! And to top things off it was beautiful outside! Warm and sunny even in a New England March!!!
Mommy started my day by taking me for a nice long walk. I love those! She always tells me what a greater walker I am and how much she enjoys walking with me. And to make things a plus it gives me some alone time with my favorite human. No little brother trying to vouche for her attention and no Daddy doing the same thing! I really enjoy my alone time with Mommy and wish I could have it more often. But I tolerate these other people taking some attention because no mater what Mommy tells Daddy, I know she loves me best!
When we got home, I didn't want to go inside and neither did she. So she grabbed a brush and we went out in the backyard and Mommy spent the HOURS brushing my coat out. With the warm weather on our heels, I've started shedding heavier. I love it when Mommy brushes me. I used to hate it, but now I lay at her feet and just let her go at it. She had to chase my little brother inside though as he kept trying to grab the furballs I left behind and run around with them. It's weird what he will try and put in his mouth! Old dirty fur off the ground? Gross!!
By the time we were done there, I had nearly an entire dog brushed out of me! I was amazed by the furry little tumble weeds that now rolled across our yard. It was like a doggie western movie!
Even with that done, we STILL didn't want to go inside! So I settled for a game of catch with mommy. I'm really good at bringing the ball back to mommy. She wanted to train me to do agility, but I'm terrified of the tunnel and no matter of cajoled has ever convinced me to go into that deep dark hole. No way!
We spent a total of five hours outside just playing! We wanted to spend more, but neighbors bully boxer got loose again. Mommy and I don't like that dog. He always get loose and comes barraling into our yard like he owns the place. He's such a brat. While he's never gotten the chance to get near me (Mommy would stand down any dog that tried to hurt me) neither one of us takes the chance. I had a boxer for a big brother for a while, and would love to play with another, but this guy is always showing me his teeth and it makes Mommy really upset. I know she's talked to his Mommy but she seems oblivous to the fact that when he gets out, he's mean to me. I know she warned her that if he ever got near me she would not hold herself responsible for what happened to that mean old Boxer. Go Mommy!!
Once inside I got a nice bowl of water and food and it was bed time! I crashed and spent the rest of the wonderful day sleeping on Mommy's lap.
I love my days off with my favorite human!
