Katie here. I feel a need to protest. My Mama goes off every day, all day, leaving me home alone. Well not really alone cause I’ve got my Dad here, but you know what I mean..she leaves me every day! And I only have a couple of days when she’s home each week…and Saturday is supposed to be all about me. ME ME ME ME ME! I almost always get to go to school unless I’m at doggy camp and I just love going to school.
Now I know this week was tough on my peeps because Mama’s been coming home from that place she calls work all tired and cranky and late every day. And Dad’s been shoveling the driveway and making me a path all week and that seems to make him tired and cranky too. But people! All that snow is melting! SEE?
Oh. You think that still looks like a lot of snow? Well…it’s where Dad piled it all up when he shoveled the driveway. Most of the snow is more like this.
Well, I guess you can’t really see, but the snow in the rest of the yard is probably only a foot or so deep. I don’t know for sure cause my Dad makes a path for me so I don’t have to walk in snow that deep. Have I mentioned I’m a princess? Probably a few times, huh?
So anyway…I was all excited and stuff because today is Saturday and I get to go to school! My Mama cut up my treats and I got to put on my school collar and she put me in my crate in the car and off we went! I was so happy my tail wouldn’t calm down. We drove and drove and I heard my Mama making squeaking noises but I didn’t pay her any attention.
After awhile the car stopped and my Mama came back to get me! I could hardly wait! SCHOOL! Then I realized we were in our own garage! What kind of trick was that! She picked me up and we went in the house. Well. I’m wasn’t going to stand for that! She was on her stupid phone texting about icy roads so I started whining. She took my out because she thought I needed to do a job, but instead of heading over to my path I headed right back to the car. I knew exactly what I wanted to do and it was TO GO TO SCHOOL! She said “No Baby, I’m so sorry,” and picked me up and rocked me as we stood there in the driveway in the rain. I was so sad.
So now I’m trying to find something to do. This is so boring. I tried helping my Mama as she sorted music for her band, but she told me I have to practice my alphabet some more because I got stuff all mixed up.
I guess I’ll have to sit on this stupid sofa and give her the stink eye the rest of the day. But the weather guy says it’s going to be warmer tomorrow and she sure better take me somewhere fun. Cause I am NOT going to wait five more days until the focus is on me! No I will not. I am a princess you know (yes I guess you know) and I expect better!
Yes I do. Humph.
