It's A Dog's Life

My Special Place

Now that I've been grounded for awhile me and good old Lindy have been trying to think of fun things we can do while we are inside.

Even though Lindy is not quarantined it's just no fun for her to go out without me. It's understandable. All her friends ever want to do is sit around and drink coffee and talk in human speak. None of them climb trees. It's pretty sad. I guess I am about her best and most interesting friend. And I am loads of fun, of course.

So, anyway, Lindy set up a special place where I can look out the window and see what is going on outside. It's real comfortable. You can't see it but there's a little mat under my blanket. And Lindy put a pillow on there too. Plus, I am going to have a talk with her about printing out a photo of my parton saint, Laika. Laika is so pretty. And she made dog-like sacrifices for the humans. She is a real good saint, I'll tell you what.

I can go to this special place whenever I want and Lindy even lets me take toys up there and she doesn't move them back to the toy box either. It is totally my own space. It's not as good as being outside. But, it's still pretty swell.

I hope you have a special place where you can keep your toys.




  • Scout likes to look out the window from her little couch in "her" room. And she has a nice basket of toys, although she doesn't always put them away.

  • Hey pal. I have the same happy place that you have. I have a bed up there and an ottomon to use as a step to get up. I can take my toys up there and the blinds are always open enough for me to see out. When I'm home all alone I like to sit up there and watch the world and sunbathe. I'm glad Lindy finally realized that those window seats were built just for dogs our size. I even have my charm school diploma hanging up where I can see it. I also have some crystals hanging to keep my shakra all happy and stuff.

    I'm glad you're doing okay. It sure is a bummer to be stuck at home, but this will end up being a good experience. Just you wait and see. Something good will come of it.

    Stay cozy and happy. Can't wait to see you soon!

  • Rowan,

    Sorry you are grounded but it's not your fault this is that old sick bat's fault

    We will pray to Saint Laika for you to make you all better and make them 45 days fly by.

    LOVE...Mona & the boys.

  • Rowan, you are fortunate to have a caring friend like Lindy. She's done the very best she can do, short of taking you outside.

    I hope that you are good to Lindy, too, because her vet gives her shots that hurt. Be gentle with her, Rowan.

  • Rowan,

    I am so sorry to hear about your being grounded. I told Grendel about it and he was very sad. He wanted me to pass on this poem to you, which he entitled: "Sad Dog, Not Bad Dog"

    It's hard to be a Dog
    When you haven't done Anything Wrong
    Rowan is a Noble Dog
    I would Lick him if I Could

    At least you can watch doggie TV. And oh, the joy when the 45 days are up--wait, it's only 43 now!

    Grendel and I will count with you.

  • i have a couch next to a window so that i can practice my Hobby called Surveillance. My Mum would like me to combine Surveillance with a new hobby she calls Stealth. but i know that would mean that i cannot bark at every last thing i see. so i am not interested. love from toby wolfhound

  • Well,Diane, I've got to tell you, putting toys away is not high on my priority list either. Besides, if I put my toys away what would Lindy do? I am sure Scout enjoys watching you pick up her toys. I like watching Lindy do it. Heeeeeee heeeeee. That must be the rabies talking....

    Hey, Romeo, come by the window and give me a woof sometime. I really like the swell bandana you and your guardian made for me. It's real swell and it looks good on me too.

    Thanks for coming by Grandmere Mimi. I know Lindy does her best for me. But, I'll tell you what, sometimes I don't really understand her line of reasoning. I'll be sweet to her. No matter what, she's my guardian and I love her.

    aghaveagh, you have a very clever dog, I'll tell you what. I posted the poem because it's too good to be buried here in the comments section. I hope Grendel will accept my invitation to be poet laureate here on my blog.

    Hey, Toby, I know what you mean. Did you see the pictures of me in my very official looking vest? Because those vests are good for doing surveillance. The other animals give me a wide berth when I wear it.

    Thanks everybody for stopping by. I love you all.

  • Well, Rowan, it looks like you are doing ok! I hope you are getting enough treats and I'm sure that Lindy is giving you extra love while you are inside. I love your watching place. I wish I had a lovely place like that.

  • Poor Rowan! I hope you get better soon! What the heck is the point of getting rabies vaccines if you still have to be quarantined if you get bitten?!
