It's A Dog's Life

Sunday, July 08, 2007

Today I got to go to Starbucks. What that is, it's a place where you can get your guardian to take you in the car and the guardian has to get out of the car and go somewhere else while us dogs can just enjoy our car time. Lindy doesn't mind taking me there at all. She is such a sweetheart.

I used my car time to feel of the sunshine on my fur and to take a nap. Also, I watched some of the humans. I kept my big ears open for anything that needed listening to. And, I practiced looking handsome. Tried out a couple new poses.

Ms. Marianne and Ms. Mollie were at the Starbucks too and they came over to my car and gave me some pets. I like getting petted. It feels good. I would say it's a priority.

Then Lindy brought me home where I got a drink of water, looked for birds on the porch, and took another nap.

I hope your Sunday afternoon is going as well as mine!




  • we had a big scary thundertorm here and I wisely didn't want to go near any of the windows. It's over now,though.

  • Rowan, I am so glad I got to see you today. I'd give you pets any time!! Seeing you smile big the way you do just brightens my day.

  • Dear Scout,

    You are obviously a prudent dog. During the thunder -- and we've had a lot here lately-- I try to sit as close to Lindy as possible. It's mainly to comfort her so she won't be scared but, truth be told, it makes me feel better too. Taking care of humans is like that, you know. It goes both ways.

    I had a fun afternoon because I got to go to Starbucks and I saw Ms. Marianne there. She gives good pets. Do you like getting pets?

    I got in trouble later, though. I was in A LOT of trouble too. What I did was take all the trash out of the trash can in the kitchen. I know it was against the rules of obedience. But, it smelled SO good in there. It was just more than I could take. I tried to resist, I did. But... Well, after I started, I couldn't stop.

    When it was all over I punished myself by going into my kennel. But, when Lindy came home she was real disappointed in me. I was so sad and ashamed that I went back into my kennel.

    I stayed in there a long time. I kept wanting my guardian to come to me and take me out of the kennel. I wanted her to pick me up and pet me and say that everything was alright but she didn‘t. Even though my guardian was just in the next room, she seemed far away. For awhile I thought she was gone altogether, maybe to get a soda or maybe forever!

    Finally she came into my bedroom, that’s the room where my kennel is. It was then that I realized that the door on my kennel wasn’t closed. I wasn’t really locked in. I didn’t go out for a few minutes though because I was scared. I didn’t want to disappoint Lindy again.

    But, then she called to me. The sound of her voice is irresistible to me. I jumped out of my kennel and right into Lindy’s arms. She petted me and reminded me that guardians are bound to love and care for their dogs forever, no matter the behavior. So, while I know I was disobedient, I was also reminded of Lindy’s unfailing love.

    I guess overall it was a pretty good day.

    Thanks for writing, Scout.

    Woof! Woof!

  • Rowan, you are a good dog, even though you fail sometimes.
