I’m not sure what’s going on around here, but things are different than they used to be. Mostly, it’s just the younger daughter and Dad who are here in the house. Mom comes to visit, and stays with us sometimes, but she isn’t here all the time. I haven’t seen Rachel very much either.
Mazi and I are keeping each other company. Maybe when the weather gets better there will be more people around again…..
Well, it’s another Sunday. Our Christmas & New Year’s holidays are officially coming to an end.
The family’s vacations from work are over. Dad went back preach at the little church he serves this morning. Last night he said, “well, I’ve got to set the alarm clock again.” He has a different job during the week, so he’ll be busy with that starting tomorrow. It was strange for him to leave the house all dressed up in a suit this morning, after being able to stay with me in regular clothes for the past two weeks.
Mom went back to work last Monday. But after two days, she was home again and not feeling very well. She said something about having a “stomach bug.” I didn’t see any bugs, even though I kept looking. I don’t like bugs….they make me nervous. I did notice that she didn’t eat very much. As a matter of fact, she hardly ate at all for a few days. So there were a lot less crumbs for Mazi and me to look for. That’s no fun.
I don’t know what’s going on with the younger daughter. Some kind of drama with her friends. All I know is I stay out of the way and let Mazi sit next to her and cuddle with her, because if I do, she just tries to pick goop out of my eyes. And that annoys me.
I think Mom is feeling better today. She’s laughing and joking around more. And she has been working on some art projects. She uses this stuff called Modge Podge that’s really smelly — so when she brings it out, I get under my covers so I don’t have to smell it.
That’s all for now. Ruff-ruff!
Happy New Year everyone!
Today, there is a picture of my sister Mazi here. I think my Mom put a picture of her up because she is really getting on my nerves. Our nice vacation time is wearing on my nerves. Plus, now that I think about it, I got a great blanket for Christmas, but she got all the really fun toys. I AM a little mad about that.
Ok, I’m a LOT mad about that. Christmas morning, Rachel and her husband brought Mazi a gift, but NOT me. They gave her a big round bone. It was so big, she couldn’t even chew it all in one day. It just was not fair. Not only did she show it off in the middle of the living room floor where the family sits in a circle to open their presents, but then she pranced around the house playing with it like a prancing horse. I just burrowed right next to my mom’s thigh and stayed under the covers and didn’t look at anyone. I was NOT happy. Besides, there was too much commotion in the house.
FINALLY, everyone left the house in the early afternoon and Mazi went to her crate. I had the whole house to myself. I got to enjoy the couch and the blankets and pillows, just like I like. Peace at last. Mom, Dad and the younger daughter came home in the evening, Mazi ran around the house again like an idiot, looking for that round bone. But dad made her wait until the next day.And the next day? Whew! Stinky! Mazi has a problem being stinky anyway, but that bone made it SO much worse. I am so tired of her smell. It is really annoying.
Can you tell I’ve been a little cranky lately? Maybe I need a doggy vacation. That’s what Mom thinks. Ruff-ruff!
Ok, I know I’m cute.
Sometimes my sisters think they should dress me up like a little doll.
As if it weren’t traumatizing enough just getting the tree up!
I’m a little emotional today. Could be the holiday whatevers.
Or it could be the change in routine.
Exhausting. Going to bed.
Oh, wow — I’m so tired today!
There was a BIG thunderstorm last night, and those make me really nervous. My big sister Mazi (I’ll tell you about her soon) kept barking and woke up the whole family. She really bugs me when she does that. Then I feel like I have to join her or else I’m not being a very good big sister dog. Sigh.
The worst part was having to wait until the big rainstorm stopped so I could go outside and to go potty. I thought my bladder was going to POP by the time the rain stopped! I could have gone out earlier, but I just HATE to get wet.
I’m staying under my covers today, and I hope Mazi will leave us all alone. I have GOT to catch up on my sleep!
