Obviously, my mom and I have differing opinions on what smells good!
Today,is a beautiful spring day and mom and I had lunch on the porch.
The neighbors were gone and mom decided I could go run in the woods for a few minutes.
Mom sat on a big rock and waited for me to come back. She waited and waited and waited!
Usually, I'm back in a minute or two, just to check in and then run off again, but today was a different day. I was exploring the woods, and I found the most WONDERFUL smelling
thing in the world. I'm not sure what it was, but I knew mom was going to
love how it smelled on me! So I rolled in it and got it all over my coat and in my
fur, on my face and in my tail and all over my paws, all four of them. Mom started
calling me. I heard her and she could hear me in the woods, the leaves make noise you know.
Finally, I came running back. I was so proud of myself, I wagged my tail as I
approached mom. I didn't have to get to close before she groaned, "Oh Annie!"
I knew she'd be happy! "Oh no, Annie, what did you get into, oh my!"
"What ?" I thought. I followed mom to the front door at which time she grabbed my collar
and opened the door. She called to dad. She told him to hold me while she went
to get the dog shampoo. You'd think she'd allow me to be an individual, think
for myself. No way. She took me upstairs and the whole way up, she kept
saying, "Shewwwww, Annie, gross!" That wasn't very nice to make fun of the
lovely perfume I'd selected to wear.
Mom says I'm a typical middle schooler, asserting myself, trying to be independent!
I thought she'd like the smell, I did!!! Ok, maybe I didn't really care if she liked it or not, I liked it a lot, that's why I got it all over me!
Mom told me while she was giving me
my bath, that I'd lost my privilege to run free for awhile. She said she knew
I'd head right back to where I got the smell and roll in it again, so we're back
to walking on the leash. That's ok, I like leash walks too!
