Been very busy these last couple of months.¬† Been to Morgan Hill twice, once with my mom and then again with my mom and dad.¬† Dental for one and funeral for the other.¬† Stayed with Kendel and Jax, he is such a character.¬† Kendel claims he won’t eat his kibble unless mom and I are here.¬† It just sits in his bowl for weeks at a time.¬† When we come, mom puts it down for him and he just gobbles it up. I guess she has the magic touch.¬† Or he thinks I will get it, which I do, so he eats it fast!
Second time we went we stayed with Diane at her house.¬† That is always fun, cuz, she plays with me and they have a nice big back yard to run around.¬† And it has grass!¬† I love to pee on the grass!¬† They left me alone for the day while they went to the funeral.¬† I was fine.¬† Nice warm house and all alone and quiet!
After that, we went home. Boy these 6 hour drives are exhausting. Soon, Mom and Dad left me alone!¬† Let me explain.¬† They packed their bags, loaded the car and bang, they were gone!¬† Later in the afternoon, Paulette came over and took me to her house next door.¬† I thought, that’s great, they will keep me company for awhile.¬† After a couple of hours I was lonesome for my family so I went to the fence and whined to go home. Paulette took me home, opened the door and I went in and checked all the rooms, no Mom and Dad! So I went back to Mark and Paulettes house.¬† There in their bedroom was my bed, in the kitchen was my food and dishes and some of my toys.¬† What??? Did they give me away? I have never stayed at their house before, so this was cool.
I spent the night on their bed, in my bed, on their couch.¬† But, I couldn’t go out, so when the sun came up, I just sat in their doorway and whined. They were not used to getting up at 5 am!¬† Whoa, were they surprised.¬† Anyway they let me out so I could watch the sun come up.¬† And as luck would have it, their sprinklers came on about 6 and I got soaked!¬† I know what ours sound like when they are ready to come on.¬† Didn’t pick up on theirs.¬† Mark was up and saw me all wet.¬† What a nice guy.¬† He picked me up and thinking he would dry me off, I was happy.¬† But again, I miscalculated¬† he put me in the bathtub and turned the warm water on.¬† I was about to get my first of several baths at their house.¬† I spent 16 days with these people and got 3 baths.¬† I only get two a year at home!
Now I figure my mom and dad are on a trip somewhere so I settled in with them. a couple of days later, I was in the yard with Paulette, watching the golfers go by, when someone came in their gate.¬† I attempted to run and greet them.¬† But what I thought was cement, was really a blue pool cover.¬† I started sinking, so I ran to the edge.¬† Big mistake, now I lost the cover and went under the edge and started to sink!¬† Paulette was there to pull me out.¬† Thank goodness.¬† That pool was cold.¬† So again a warm bath. Sheesh, don’t they understand the words towel dry? So into the warm water I go for another bath.¬† Never been so clean.
The next day they put me in my yard so they could play golf.¬† My dog door was open so I could go into the house and nap. Well they came by golfing, and said hello to me.¬† Then they left!¬† What, alone again?¬† I was desolate.¬† I didn’t want to be left alone again so I climbed over the fence, rolled down the other side and tried to find them.¬† They were gone, I ran down the course looking for them, out into the street in our complex and couldn’t find them.¬† So I went home.¬† But the gate was closed.¬† The neighbors next door to them saw me and put me in their yard, until M & P got home.¬† I found a small hole under the fence and went back into¬† Mark and Paulettes yard.¬† Boy were they surprised when they got home and found me on their couch on their patio!¬† They couldn’t figure out how I got there.¬† They started calling me houdini!¬† Anyway, they decided to see if I was jumping the fence.¬† They put me back into my yard, walked away on the golf course.¬† Then they hid to see what I would do.¬† I climbed over again and went looking or them.¬† This time I found them!¬† Aha!¬† They can’t escape from me now! But now when they go somewhere, they lock me in their house!
I got to go to the mailbox every day with Mark on the golf cart.¬† Lots of treats, new toys and walks every night on the golf course.¬† But I miss my mom and dad.
The days went by sorta slow, but it was a nice change.¬† Then one day, when Mark was going to play golf, I was in the house with Paulette and all of a sudden I heard a whistle!¬† It was my moms whistle! I ran down the hall and jumped into her arms.¬† They were back!¬† Yhey didn’t forget me.¬† They were on a cruise to Hawaii for 15 days!¬† Boy was I glad to see them. It was so nice to go home, with my family and get back to my normal routine.¬† You don’t really know how good you have it, until it goes away!¬† Hope you all have a good Thanksgiving. Talk to you soon.
