Hello to all our furry and not-so-furry friends! See that pile of pinestraw at the back of our woods? Well it is 6 feet high and about 150 feet long and that's what Pockets jumped over on the way to his great escape! We haven't had anymore escapes, but he is driving Penny and me crazy. He chases Penny and bites her tail and he is constantly biting my face and legs. I am limping and Penny is just plain worn out! Yesterday, he grabbed a grapefruit off the counter and played with it like a ball. Mom was afraid he was going to puncture it and put juice EVERYWHERE! Fortunately, he turned it into juice, but he never broke through the skin! We, now have mouse traps on the window seat, in the kitchen to keep him out of the window where the plants are. He tripped one of the traps and hasn't been near the window again. We think we should mouse trap the whole house! Maybe Mom could glue one to the top of my head and Penny's tail. He wants to play bitey-face with me constantly and I only want to play when I feel like it! I keep growling at him, barking and showing him my large teefies, but he comes right back at me. Mom has been putting him in "time out" a LOT!
Yesterday, the wild boy decided that he is no longer going to mind Mom. He won't come when she calls him and runs from her instead. Today, he is wearing a rope around the house so Mom can step on it when he won't come. He is going in for a much needed bath, this morning, and while he is gone, Penny and I will be taking BIG, BIG nap! There is a man coming, this afternoon to get measurements and see what kind of materials he needs to put up a fence in front of that pile of pinestraw. Thank Dogness! Once the fence is in, Pockets can run like a mad fool and burn off some of that energy! Then, maybe he will leave Penny and me alone for awhile.
Stay tuned for more great adventures!
Poppy, Penny and Pockets (the wild child!)
