Sophie and I have started a new routine I term "storming the van." On most weekday mornings, Mom has to drive Little Lad to school for band, or chorus, OR she has to drive Wee Lass to preschool. All those are excellent opportunities for RIDES. Mom "claims" that sometimes Sophie and I cannot go along for the ride, because Mom has to "go somewhere."
Why would Mom ever need to "go somewhere" without us? Obviously we are not repressing her enough for she still has some thought that she is entitled, yes entitled, to some time to herself. We shall only repress her more until any thoughts of herself are gone.
Anyhoodles, to make sure that Sophie and I get to go along for the ride, we "storm the van." In the time that Mom is shoo-ing Little Lad out to the bus, getting slow-poke Wee Lass to put on her shoes, and finding coats; Sophie and I just force our way into the van. Sure we then have to sit in the parking lot while Mom accomplishes whatever errands she has to accomplish, but we watch people, bark at people, and generally entertain ourselves. We have to get all this done now; when the weather is warm Mom doesn't care if we Storm the Van, she won't leave us in the car.
Today, Sophie and I waited in the Target parking lot. When Mom came out, she loaded a box into the van. The box barked and whined! It was most definitely a DOG! I didn't know Target was a Puppy Mill! But it has to be, and not only that, but Mom brought out the dog in a small box, inside a plastic bag! That is certainly cruel, if not outright illegal! Mom acted like nothing was going on, but all the way home the package barked, whined, and whimpered. Queen Sophine, in her usual self-centeredness, pretended not to notice. I sat right next to that box and clearly displayed to Mom my displeasure. Mom told me to "wait until Christmas."
Christmas? That poor puppy will be dead by Christmas, if not by suffocation, then by starvation. I thought that I could trust my own Mother, but apparently not when it comes to "coupons," and "Christmas specials," and something about "hot toys."

You have the SPCA on speed-dial, right? Turn your Mom in- she's gone nuts, obviously...
Too funny! We know Target have ADA problems but now this?

Mom shoved the suspicious Puppy Box into the back of the storage closet and I haven't heard anything since (gulp.)
You and Sophie must now Storm The Closet!!
