Today I did something so sneaky and so out of character for the intellectual, austere dog I am.
I stole the holiday cookies!
The cookies were in a big white bakery box on the yellow table. They'd been there since Tuesday and weren't getting eaten by my people. I thought they'd probably go to waste if I didn't eat them. So, I crafted a plan this afternoon to get the cookies from the table and into my belly.
When Mommy took her new scary book into the living room, put on her puffy slippers and settled in to read, I snuck up on the yellow table. Diggy was with Mommy and didn't know what I was up to.
I stood on my hind feet and streatched my nose to the box. I had to jump a bit to reach it, but I got it. I dragged it slowly off the table and onto the floor. I opened my mouth, cobra-like, to eat as many cookies as possible at once. . . Suddenly, I heard: "Tommy! What? Are? You? Doing?"
I dashed from the kitchen around the corner to my bedroom, but the door was closed! I skidded to a stop under the dining room table, but Mommy was right behind me. She would have grabbed me if she hadn't noticed that Diggy had inhaled the lemon squares from the box on the floor.
Mommy tried to pry the lemon squares from Diggy's mouth, but he wasn't opening it for anything! In the meantime, I cleaned up the crumbs from the floor. Yum! Sugar cookie pieces! Chocolate cupcake crumbs! Coconut bits!
Diggy was full of yellow lemmony goo so I licked him a bit too. Mommy, however, threw the rest of the cookies into the trash can. At least we got a little taste of holiday delight!
It is snowing. Again. We had nearly a week of snow-free days, but here it comes again. I think I will go watch the flakes fall in the holiday lights from my window and snooze off my rapidly crashing sugar-high.
