The Cold Shoulder

This morning I woke up after my husband had taken the dogs out. It was raining and, quite honestly, felt like a good morning to sleep in and enjoy the soothing sound of the rain falling on the roof. After a little while, I got up and came to the living room, where I was greeted by a very digruntled puppy.

Me: Bunny, what's wrong?

Bunny: (glares and husband and huffs, burying her nose under her front paw)

Husband: She's a little mad at me.

Me: (trying not to giggle at her disdainful face) Why is that?

Husband: Well, your puppy really doesn't like the rain!

Bunny: He left me out there for HOURS with no raincoat! I'm drenched! Nobody will want to pet me now!

Me: (sitting down on the couch beside her) Oh, that's terrible! I'm so sorry!

Husband: (rolls eyes)

Bunny: (crawling over and burying her head against my chest) It was horrible! I thought I'd drown out there! Can't you get me some indoor plumbing?

Me: We don't have that kind of money, I'm sorry! Hopefully it won't be raining when it's time to go out later.

Husband: Bunny, I have your jammies! Let's put them on and warm you up!

Bunny: (hiding her face against me) Please make that buzzing gnat go away!

Me: Let's take off your wet collar!

Bunny: (holding up her dainty little head) Oh yes, please!

A few minutes later, she got up and went to get a bite of breakfast and my husband did put her pajamas on. She turned her head away and completely ignored his existence. By the time he left for work, she was still not acknowledging him in any way. Not even an ear twitch would happen when he said her name. I noticed that none of the dogs got up to see him out when he headed for the door. I guess none of them wanted to risk going out in the deluge again. I guess we'll see if they've forgiven him by the time we have roast for supper!


  1. Glad you got some rain! We could do with some here!
    That is a very cute verbal interlude too...hope she forgives him. Get warm!
    Lots of licks

  2. Chuckling. Much can be forgiven for roast.

  3. Unbelievable...that man human is mad!

  4. She's really not that bad off. Really. LOL

  5. How cute is that, she wanted her jammies on because she was cold and wet! I would be a little upset also!
