Hi my dear friends,
I'm in the dog house right now. I was a bad girl yesterday when the Mommy got home from work and again today. I am so ashamed of myself for almost making the Mommy have a heart attack tonight. The Mommy said yesterday was bad enough but tonight she got really afraid. When the Mommy got home last night I managed to get past her before she had a chance to close the screen door. I didn't go anywhere. The Mommy heard my tags, knew I had gotten out into the front yard and hollered at me to stop and get back in the house in that tone of voice that wakes the dead. I trotted back in because when she uses that voice I know I'm in trouble. The Mommy knows I would never go near the street.....streets and cars scare me....I still remember when I was just a puppy dodging traffic on a busy street.
BUT tonight I got out again and the Mommy didn't see me or hear my dog tags. She hunted all over the house, kept calling my name, looked everywhere in the house and then came back out into the front yard frantic that somebody had stolen me. I didn't mean to scare the Mommy, it's just that I don't get the chance to go outside in the front yard very often so when the opportunity took place I just had to take it. Is it my fault that the Mommy is so slow, that she doesn't shut the door fast enough. When the Mommy finally found me 20 minutes later I was over at Roland's house playing with his grandson, Nicholas, and his new 8 week old puppy. The Mommy didn't mind that I was playing with them......BUT she was furious because I had run across the street to get to Nicholas and his puppy. I never cross the street willingly and the Mommy was crying because she said I could have been run over our something.
The Mommy took this picture of me while we was sitting outside, while she was scolding me for being bad girl. She sad it would have broken her heart if something had happened to me....."I'm so sorry Mommy" **crying** Since I am now grounded starting Sunday, not tomorrow because of Woof! Stock, I am not allowed to blog tonight. **crying**.
Tomorrow is Woof! Stock in Clear Lake. DROH called the Mommy and said they had decided to try and bring the kissing booth and would I work it like I did at the dog fair in Deer Park. I made $28.00 all by myself at that dog fair. I just love kissing and since Snowy isn't here for me to give free kisses to, I might as well raise some money selling my kisses.
Since I'm not supposed to be blogging, the Mommy wants to tell you what all is happening tomorrow.
THE MOMMY.......Since I promised DROH that Mona would work the kissing booth and be one of the contestants in the Best Dressed Dog Contest she will not be grounded until Sunday. There will be lots to fun things for the dogs to do and the humans too. Here is a rundown of tomorrow happenings.
