Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

I had to forgive her

Katie here.

I suppose you’ve all been enjoying my mama’s photos from her trip way up north. Might I remind you that she was gone for two weeks and she left me and my daddy behind! I don’t know what she was thinking.

This is my back yard!

This is my back yard!

And do you know what is worse? When she came home she smelled like another animal! Not me! Something smaller and…dare I say it…more like a….a…squirrel! Whatever it was it had been all over her!

When she first came home I was all excited. I couldn’t control my wriggle-butt, it just kept moving! Then I smelled the evil on her. I still couldn’t keep my tail from wagging…and I had to give her a couple of kisses. But then it hit me….she had cheated on me!

This is my park!

This is my park!

Well, I backed right up and sat down and barked at her! And you know what she did then? She laughed at me! How could she!?

I thought about it long and hard, (OK…for about 3 minutes) and decided I was going to have to be the bigger doggie and forgive her. After all, she took me to my park the very next day.

And she’s been giving me tummy and ear rubs. And she feeds me. And gets up in the middle of the night to take me outside if I ask.

I couldn't stop smiling!

I couldn’t stop smiling!

So I guess I should let it go, right? I shouldn’t feel all jealous and cranky. I mean she did come home to me and daddy. I don’t know where she went or who she hung out with, but she came home to me. And that’s what matters.

That and treats. Of course.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  4. Well Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. I think her vacation photos look like it was a cold weather time so I think her heart needs to get warm again and you are the bestest doggie to do just that. Lee says she would vacation in a warm place.
    Thanks for being a friend

  5. You know what they say, Katie – “if you love it, let it go . . .” And she came back!

  6. Well Katie, I’m sure staying home with your daddy was way more fun than staying with a CAT! Can you imagine? Forgive, but make sure to keep laying on the guilt trip. It will pay off.

  8. Dallas here. Katie, I know just what you mean — my mama goes cheating on a regular basis, but it’s with my family (my birth mom and one of my sisters). I can’t understand how she can do that and not take me, too. We just have to look on the bright side — at least they do come back (and then we can guilt them into giving us more cookies!!)

  9. you are a forgiving girl Katie – I don’t think think we would give Mom such as easy time if she cheated on us – it would be the cold shoulder and stink eye for days (we get more treats that way)

  11. I need to get caught up with your mama, Katie, but good to see you have her back, safe and sound (even if she did smell like an evil squirrel).

  12. How could she cheat on u with a possible squirell? Aliens must have brainwashed her when she was away or something. I am glad she is back home where she belongs.

  15. You’re a sweetheart Katie-girl. I am sure your momma missed you while she was away, and was happy to see your wiggle-butt upon her return.
