Taking a breather in the sunshine! Photo courtesy of Laurel.
Sunday my family took a “road trip” out to the Train Museum. I was left at home, by myself, in the crate. BORING!!! Worst Sunday EVER!!! I was so miserable and lonely.
Apparently, Mom had arranged for Laurel to check on me and spend some time with me so that I wouldn’t be in the crate the whole day. Thank goodness for that! When Laurel came in, I was so happy to see her; I went into a tail-wagging frenzy of happiness. We played, and I got to take a sunbathing breather out in the backyard. I cannot tell you how happy I was to be out of the crate for a while.
I guess toward the end of the outing, Mom was getting a little frenzied with worry herself, because she came bolting through the door, let me out, and smothered me with affection. Then she gave me some extra food (“you must be starving!”) and even more attention. I was so happy to see her, my big heart just about exploded with joy.
Mom says when I am done with school, she would like to take me out to places like the Train Museum. It’s a huge location with actual running trains on tracks and lots of trains being restored in huge barns. There’s a lot of space, and Mom thinks it would be a good outing for me. But there is some noise and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Jamie has trains downstairs in Erik’s old room, which is now dubbed, “The Train Room”, but I tend to dislike things with motors and have a tendency to chase the trains. So I’m not allowed down there too much.
Well, I don’t think I’ll have to go in the crate today, or at least not for too long. It’s good to know, however, that Mom misses me as much as I miss her when she is away!
