Like everydoggie else, we're sick of winter!
Hi, every buddy! It's me, Patches! This is the worst winter the Atlanta area has had since 1925 (or so the weather fools say). We are totally sick of rain and snow and rain and ice and wind and rain! Our back yard looks like a lake and our kitchen floor looks like how our backyard is supposed to look! (Just red clay mud everywhere)! Our mom is not amused, one little bit! Every time she washes the floor, it rains AGAIN!...or snows or sleets!
It isn't bad enough that we are tracking mud into the kitchen, but some of it ends up on the carpet in the living room or we rub ourselves on the sides of the big bed. Now, Mom is yelling at us (OK, mostly ME) to not rub up against her bed. She got a new comforter set and we aren't allowed to touch the bed! Hmmmmmmf! Where does she expect us to dry ourselves off when we come in from outside? Besides, I sleep up there when Mom isn't home. Shhhhh...don't tell her. I'm sure she doesn't know!
We have a new morning routine in our house. Of course, SOME of us are more thrilled with it than SOMEbody else! We have started body slamming the sides of our mom's bed at 4:00 in the morning. Once we have made her just about jump to the ceiling, we start barking, so there is no way she can ignore us! She drags herself out of the bed to potty us and feed us and then SHE GOES BACK TO BED! This is soooooo not fair! It makes us have to do the whole routine AGAIN around 6 or 6:30...only on the second performance, we don't get fed! That really sucks! According to us furkids, our mom getting out of bed = food for us! She says it doesn't always work that way! And while we're on the subject of food...what's up with her telling us we're going to eat when we're outside, with no intentions of coming in! We have a tendency to stay out too long and then our mom calls us in (ya know, we might be digging a trench under the fence or something). When we still don't show up, she yells, "Let's eat, girls"! That gets us EVERY time, but she never comes through with the food! You would think we would LEARN that the food isn't always forthcoming as promised, but NOPE, she tricks us EVERY time!
We hope everydoggie is safe from the cold, snow, ice or rain that we all seem to be getting! We think we should just take a nap until about April! That's it for now, everydoggie. I'm off to find a nice aire-vent to sleep on as the hot aire pours out!
