The backyard work is now complete but they've got this temporary plastic fencing all around the grass. Hmmm. I almost fell on top of it the other day while trying to sit against it. That reminds me of something hysterical. The first month or so after they brought me home, I had a nice enclosed pen area in the kitchen that contained my bed, toys, and food/water bowls. It was set up against part of the sliding patio door. One day mom was trying to open the patio door while I was in the pen and Cosmo was squeezing himself next to her anxious to go outside. She lost her balance and fell backwards into the pen, collapsing part of it--good thing I didn't get hurt, but it was the funniest thing! After that, my pen got smaller and smaller since it had connecting pieces, but that eventually led me to more freedom!! Now, all that is gone and I have one big giant crate which I don't mind and that should be put away by the end of the year, we hope!
Mom and dad are really impressed because I've suddenly acquired a taste for paint and drywall in the house. Yellow wall paint seems to be my favorite flavor, and I've been licking the paint like a popsicle! Then I sink my teeth into it and get some of that drywall! I don't know why I do that but mom and dad's voices get louder when I do.
Cosmo is feeling and looking much better now, so it will soon be time for me to get out into the world and see what a beach is, for example. I can't wait! I wonder if the beach is anything like that big white thing in the bathroom that mom fills with water and bubbles.
