Gracie here! Mommy is not feeling well, her tummy aches, so I decided to jump in and post for today. Though it is kind of embarrassing having to post a picture of some mischief I was involved in like some common dog.
I’m doing this for mommy!
So one night we were having a quiet evening. Mommy sipping something that was hot, I tried to sip it too, and pushing a pin with colored string, I tried to eat it, through a cloth. After a while I settled down at her feet with my own little chew toy. Now let me tell you, chew toys are nice! I mean, I don’t go for the stinky shoe or the hard leg of a table, mommy keeps me well supplied with toys fit for a princess!
Except for paper. I just love the feel of paper in my mouth and the sound it makes when I rip it to shreds!
So I’m minding my own business when I notice mommy put a piece of paper on the small table in front of us. Looks like she’s done with it so I decided to have my fun. After a few minutes of tearing through this little piece of paper I hear GRAAAACIIIIEEEEEEEE
Mommy does that when I have something she wants! Game on! First I ran for the big table, ducked under it and headed for the stairs. But mommy was there right at the first step. I reverse course and ran in the other direction down the hall! Wrong move, doors shut, I was trapped! Plus, I noticed I left a big piece of my precious paper behind. Mommy had it in her hand. Hmmm, maybe she would be interested in a trade? I offered her the little piece by dropping it at her feet. And did she drop the big piece? NO! She scooped up the small pieces I dropped and put them high up where I couldn’t reach them!
I was not happy! Then to make matters worse she got my pen out. Now I enjoy hanging out in a pen like any other dog but I was enjoying my time beside her on the floor. I guess this was an important paper or maybe she got tired of me jumping at the string she was playing with. Either way, I was in solitary confinement! She wouldn’t even let Big Mean Kitty come in and play with me!
I don’t know, here’s the reason I found myself in solitary…
So that’s the mischief I got into.
Sometimes it’s hard having to be princess!
