My life is so strange nowadays. My daily routine, with the park and Leeloo and Gage and Jackson and Xena and Chai and everyone else is gone. Mostly I sit behind the gate. Uncle Max takes us out in the yard, and throws to Trina and Sammy. Uncle Dan comes over. But I never see my true love, Leeloo.
Until…every once in a while Uncle Ed descends on the scene. Uncle Ed is my special Uncle, and he is some sort of god. He takes me to the park and I get to play keepaway, which I have become good at from defending myself against Trina and Blu and Sammy:
I also got to see Leelooo, and she still loves me!
And Chai was there, too. Everyone was there. I got rid of Chai though.
I don’t know where Mommis found that Uncle Ed fellow, but he is golden. I mean, he is a golden.
The most terrible and unexpected thing happened last night. Uncle Max took Mommis somewhere in the car and she never came back! She’s vanished.
I think it has something to do with my peeing on the floor, about which I do feel bad, but Sammy says i’m wrong. He says it is the pink suitcase. The pink suitcase takes Mommis away, and he says this happens a lot more than we’d like. He saw the pink suitcase come out of the closet a couple of days ago and immediately got di-di and stopped eating. He acted all nervous, like something was going to happen. And sure enough, it did. She left.
Just when I thought puppy life was over for me, Uncle Ed came and picked us up and took us to the park. Things got better there, because Leeloo was there. and I found another one of those great water bottles that make the noise I like.
But I sure miss Mommis.
Most of the time when we’re walking I’m looking at Mommis’s butt, because I’m supposed to be slightly behind her. Although too far behind her is considered “dog at large,” and too far in front of her is considered “out of control.” These are difficult rules to master, especially since they were made by the police and not by Mommis.
The first time we came out here to the park she explained the rules of off leash walking; don’t call attention to yourself. I try to be as surreptitious as possible, although I’m the only British Cream retriever in the park. But if I am the best possible boy, perhaps they will forget I am white? No such thing as white entitlement in this park.
She showed up this morning with a harness and a leash, but Mommis stripped her naked for me.
And so I showed her my stuff. I quietly seduced her . I’m actually pretty smooth for a guy my age. I did betray my excitement by peeing on the floor though.That was embarrassing.
Today sure was a hot day. Too hot to go to the outhouse and almost too hot to play until I put the stick in the house.
The living room makes a great playroom!
I have no idea how to get in and get out of this big metal thing that takes us to the park. It has two parts. Mommis goes in one part and we go in another. I tried to climb over from the other part to the Mommis part and Mommis made me go back. She kept saying “In the back.” I get that back is where we sit but whaf does in the mean?
And I got stuck in the middle.
