Bunny here, finally getting a chance to use the computer. Hello to everyone out there!
I never thought I'd be writing this, but it turns out that my mom has been (gasp) petting other dogs! Monday she got up and went back to work. She got home and I thought to myself, finally, it's Bunny time! Well, she fussed over me, of course, and then Dad came home and they had dinner. I was content because I knew that they'd soon be taking me for my evening walk and sharing the couch with me and petting me and all would be right in the universe.
Of course that's not what happened! They got done with dinner, we snuggled for a little bit and then Dad went to change clothes. It was his dog walking clothes and I did my little happy dance. Blueberry did her head bobble-tail waggle routine. Then they went to the back door -- and left without us!
Me: I know what you've been up to!
Mom: I told you we had to go teach class.
Me: Class means the little human puppies that you work with! I've been to class! I wasn't whelped yesterday, you know.
Mom: This was dog obedience class. Remember the other Saturday when you went with me to teach the kids about how dog obedience works? We're teaching those kids how to train their dogs.
Me: Well, that's all well and good, but you have their stink all over you! How do you explain that?
Mom: Do I still smell like skunk? Darn it! We have to touch the dogs sometimes to help the kids learn how to train them.
Me: Skunk?! You saw a skunk? Where? I always miss all the fun!
Mom: One of the dogs got sprayed by a skunk. Trust me -- I did NOT want to touch him! I'd much rather have been home with you. One of these days, I might start taking you with me.
Me: Really? Maybe I can get that dog to teach me how to catch a skunk...
Mom: Yes, really, and you will not be catching any skunks!
I have to tell you all, I am not thrilled with this arrangement. However, the skunk does smell divine! That is a true treat for the olfactory nerve, let me tell you. I suppose I can overlook this, but I hope she decides to take me with her soon! Meanwhile, I'm glad that she comes home to me every night.
