It's been busy here at our house here in the country the past few weeks. As everyone's life is, some of it's been good some of it not so much.
The weather is never really anything that bothers me. I'm a pup that loves the great outdoors and all it has to offer. Snow, sleet, bitter cold no problem. I have a Mom that will layer me to meet the occasion. Rain, mud, that doesn't bother me either. It's been raining and muddy here for a while. I can't say I've missed that many walkies during our inclement weather. No complaints there.
Mom had a birthday and that was kind of a big deal. Dad surprised her with a take away birthday dinner and got her the entire series of her favorite TV show on Hulu. Her and Dad watched TV all night and got caught up on The Blacklist. Dad also surprised Mom with some more graphics editing software. (I don't know if you've noticed but Mom and I are kind of addicted to graphics editing). So you see it's been an eventful time here at our house.
The reason Dad got take away and they not go to the restaurant is, I have been a terribly sick pup. Mom and Dad weren't going to go out to celebrate Mom's Birthday with me not being well. Yups, I'm sure my furiends remember I had my first dental cleaning a few weeks ago. Well no one knew I was fighting off a tummy bug when they put me to sleep for my cleaning. That gave the bug time to call in the reinforcements. It was downhill from there pawfuriends.
I'm glad I have the Mom and Dad I have. The first sign of something amiss with my tummy and I get loaded up in the car and the folks are calling my dogtor while we're in route to their office.
Mom's kept me pretty quite ever since. That was fine for the first couple of days, but it's been almost 2 weeks now. I've got bunnies and squirrels to track and chase. While I've been on restricted play times, Spring/Summer has sprung.
This seems to be one of those years where we skip Spring and move right into summer.
Now this will cramp my style. I am a pup that has one speed. That's go, and go as fast as my stubby legs can carry me. Mom doesn't do well letting that happen during the summer time. Or if she does, it's VERY early in the mornings or VERY late in the afternoons. We live in the south and not only are our summers very hot, they're also very humid. As I mentioned before, the weather doesn't cause me to miss a beat, and that is my downfall. Mom says, seeing as how I only have one speed, that translates to less time outside during the summer time months.
It's happened early here this year pawfuriends, even the super short haircuts have started. Mom thinks I don't know what's going on. I got a bath today, and seeing that I haven't been to the groomers in a while I have a sneaking suspicion that's where I'm going tomorrow. I'll come back home nekked and I'll stay that way until fall.
Happy Spring/Summer depending on where you live.
Love, Molly and my Mom
