I am exhausted, and Thankful that Thanksgiving is over. Mom abandoned ME; not only abandoned me, but left me in charge, along with Oldest Lad, of Wee Lass and Little Lass, while she gallivanted off on a bus tour of Philadelphia and Washington DC. Middle Lad's High School Marching Band performed in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade, and Mom and Dad decided it was more important to chaperone Middle Lad and his Food Allergies, than to have Mom stay HOME, where she belongs.
Sophie was useless. Mom, Dad, and Middle Lad left on Tuesday evening. By Thursday, Sophie had decided that Mom was never coming home, so she started looking for a new Mom. Other than finding Mom-ly looking women at the park to fawn over her, Sophie spent her days laying on the couch, looking Sopha-thetic.
I worked my paws to the bone keeping Oldest Lad on the ball, and keeping some semblance of normal family life going for Wee Lass and Little Lad. Do any dogs out there realize how difficult it is to keep Little Lad reading every day and writing in his journal for Thanksgiving Homework, plus practicing the piano, and saxophone? And Wee Lass? There are good reasons why Female Dogs wean their pups at 6 weeks -- children are like puppies, too much, too much.
When Mom came home Sunday morning, after spending yet another night not-sleeping on the Tour Bus, I greeted her enthusiastically, then made it clear that not only do I expect reimbursement for my duties, but I am NOT letting Mom out of my sight for fear that I shall be left in charge again. Next time Mom volunteers to chaperone a trip I shall register myself at the Kennel.

Did she at least bring you a present for all your hard work? I think she had a bunch of human pups to look after, so she was working, too, even though not as hard as you were.
