Mom gets up lots during the night lately to take care of Jethro. I get up lots during the night lately to follow Mom out to the kitchen and make Jethro's dinner. We are both constantly tired.
Well, last night at the three am feeding for some reason I got left on the wrong side of the baby gate. It is a nasty baby gate...several times I have been smacked by that gate when it pops closed so I do tend to hang back a bit. Perhaps Mom really didn't know I was still on the wrong side of that gate... Or, perhaps she did!!!
At any rate, she didn't miss me and, after feeding Jethro, she fell right back to sleep. Being a good dog, I calmly sat on the wrong side of the gate, waiting for her to let me back in the bedroom. I waited and waited, and waited. Suddenly, I heard that skunk out on the porch. I barked and barked and barked. Wooooofffffffff.
Mom yelled at me to stop barking. Did she notice I wasn't in the bedroom???? Nope, she went right back to sleep. Next, the paper man turned around in our driveway. I barked and barked and barked. Woooooooffffffff!!! No Mother, just some more yelling.
Next, it was the Christmas lights coming on...I barked and barked and barked and barked. Woooooooffffffffffffffff!!! Not a sound from the bedroom! Not even any yelling.
Later, I heard the alarm clock buzzing...followed by a "bang" as Mom hit the sleep button. This was getting serious...I was still out here in the living room. I barked and barked and barked and barked. Nothing at all, except some more yelling from the bedroom, followed by groaning.
The last straw was when the school bus came along and picked up the early kids. I barked and barked and...well, you know what I did, right? Mom yelled and yelled and, suddenly...she said, and I quote," Beanie, where ARE you?"
Duh, I have been trying to tell you all night long!!!
Tonight she's on her own fixing Jethro's dinner...I am staying on the bed, under the covers.
