Arrival Story: I wanted to adopt another Pekingese. When I saw him in the corner of his crate, I fell in love with him. He was the smallest dog I ever saw, but was sooooo loving. The owner that was selling him smoked very heavily and so the name.
We had a fun weekend. Didn't get to go swimming although I teased mom into thinking I wanted to. I'd watch Betty dive in the pool on command and then walk up to mom like I wanted to follow . . .. silly mom - she was actually thinking I wanted to . . . .
We got locked out of the house today. Let me tell you - that was fun. My big sister said she was going out for awhile = that was about 6:00 p.m.ish She stepped outside the sliding glass door and then I think she locked it as she left. Mom thought she'd go in soon after . . . not. My big brother Tico thought he'd let mom know . . . this is not fun. He sat by the door panting. Everytime she left the yard to get help, he barked and barked and barked - like he thought that would help. When she got back home . . . from next door . . . she filled the water dish. He didn't want outside water - - he wanted inside water. It wasn't even hot . . . but he acted like it was. Betty just wanted mom to keep throwing her ball in the pool. I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do . . . sit by the fence and wait for the big dog on the other side or play with my tennis ball. No swimming for me today - thank you very much.
Mom went next door and made some phone calls. Pretty soon - - 2-1/2 hours later . . . my big sister came home. We all went inside and drank and drank and drank water. There's nothing like inside water. Mom was pretty relieved - she now knows there is no way anyone is getting inside the house, especially her.
We got in after a bit. Boy was I glad . . . It was starting to get dark outside . . .
