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!

Patches (and Penny too)

The bed is the pawfect place to dry yourself off! Just like wiping food off your face, on people's pant legs..haha.
Sorry your weather is so frightful.
We want all of our furiends to move here. C'mon the weather is fine!

Gus said...

UhOh...have you all been taking lessons from Teka? best be careful, or you may end up sleeping on the couch in the living room.


The Thuglets said...

Wow that looks a comfy bed to sleep on.

Gosh you get your mum up at 4am and she fees you?

Stay safe and warm.

4AM!!! I think not. Mommy says Dales have nice big bladders so we must sleep much later than that. Of course my little Welshie brother has to go out usually at least once during the night.

Wish we had some of your snow. It is really so much fun to get vold and wet, then drip all over. hehe.

Sally Ann and Andy said...

We agree. Andy likes the cold, but I'm not such a big fan of the cold. I hope to see y'all soon. I'll bring some nice doggie treats.

Ya mean your mom isn't thrilled to be up at 4AM? Our mom is up at that hour but we don't get breakie until 6AM. We need to think about changing that!

Love ya lots

Hi, your mom should tuck a bag of treats in with her when she gets into bed. That way, when you guys back at her at 6:00 or 6:30 AM, she can just toss out a couple of cookies and then she can go back to sleep. Sounds like a good plan.

Dexter said...

Humans are so hard to train. I usually send PeeWee in to do the body slamming at 4AM due to momma being most grouchy over the whole thing. Sometimes we luck out and she accidentally feeds us because she is so dopey that she can't read the clock right. SCORE!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Patches and Penny!
Sure you are suffering the bad weather!
The new comforter is beautiful... sorry you can't used is as your pawsonal towel!
That body slamming routine sounds very interesting! Oops!
Kisses and hugs

Hi girls..

Oh dear.. sorry to hear about the bad weather you've been getting. Sending you some of our warm sunshine!!

OMdoG.. you girls body-slam the sides of your mom's bed too?? Hershey does that quite often and our mom always thinks she's the only dog who does this... it's driving her mad too. Hahaha!!

Sherry said...

Maybe your mom could give you a very tiny treat when you come in when she calls you. We like it when our mom does that! But what's with the 4 am stuff? You girls need your beauty sleep.

Hey ladies! Remember me?

You can live here with us. In Malaysia it is always toasty so you will always stay warm.

My Dog Sam - Ruptured Disk said...

Hi Penny and Patches, wow that sure looks like a great bed. I think that your mom is going to have to get another one for Penny. Unfortunately, my mom and dad know all about "the firsts" too. They still miss my "uncles" and they went to the Rainbow a long time ago.
