Sorry I haven’t written. I have been away at Canine Obedience. Mom pulled a fast one and took the family to Starved Rock for a weekend trip, and that landed me back with the Alpha Male for some dog time and re-training. Mom says Starved Rock was really beautiful, and she will do a post about it, so you all will know what a special place it is.
I was so lonely without my family. Granted, I have loads of fun with the Alpha Male, and we run and play a lot, but at night, I missed curling up on the bed next to Mom and Dad. So I was incredibly happy to see my family, smiling at me after pulling up in Dad’s van. The Alpha Male and I were seated, looking out of the window at the school, and saw them in the parking lot.
Mom jumped out of the van first and was all smiles as she opened the door. Even though I was filthy from playing outside, and must admit, somewhat smelly, she enveloped me in a gigantic hug and kissed me on the nose. Dad said I was a good girl and gave me a couple of pats. Then we were going home.
The drive home was uneventful and soon I was wagging my tail at the sight of our house. Mom had commented to Dad that I was very quiet in the car and looked serious. I was serious! Going home was serious business to me.
I came in the kitchen and drank a whole bowl of water. Then Mom took me out and I went to the potty. The next thing I knew, I was in the bath. Phooey. Actually, I didn’t mind so much because, truth me told, I could smell me, and I didn’t want to stink up the bed. So I stood quietly for my bath and even let Mom put my ear drops in. I gave a good, soaking shake when I got out and then lay down on my blanket.
I’m sure you can understand that I am over tired and to-the-bone-exhausted. I’m going to sleep now. I’m glad to be back, and I missed you all very, very, much.
Woof! Your friend, Maggie
