Running Away From Home

Well, it's been quite a week. I was abandoned for a few days. Mommy likes to say that I went on vacation. Huh. What kind of vacation is it when your family goes off to some ski resort and leaves you behind? Sounds to me like a vacation for THEM, but not for the dog. Needless to say, I barked until I became hoarse. I did meet some interesting new dog friends whose families had abandoned them too. We bonded, but we couldn't discuss much because we were all more or less hoarse.

It finally got nice enough on Tuesday for Mommy and me to walk to the beach. We actually went on the beach, but I'm still not allowed off the leash. "You run away," said Mommy. I just huffed at her. I wouldn't run away, I just like to sniff things. Now that most of the hateful snow is gone, there are a lot of interesting smells. Unfortunately, after the beach walk, I had a bath.

There are foxes in the yard! We saw them on Tuesday. I sniffed for them yesterday and I found that they wander around the shed. I think that is because there are mice and chipmunks in the shed. The foxes and I are like-minded: rid the yard of rodents.

Today the weather is ugly. Rain and fog and coldness. Mommy said that it was supposed to snow, but it's not snowing. A good day to curl up with an interesting book: Mommy and I are reading "The Chateau." It is not written very well, and is kind of silly, but we like it nonetheless. Yawn. I think I'll take a mid-morning nap.
