Saturday morning means different things to different members of our family. For me, it's a chance to finally catch up on some much-needed rest. For Mr. Taleteller and Morgan, it means off to obedience class. The Greyhounds think it means a chance to enjoy the living room in peace and quiet.
It's pretty quiet and laid back here until Mr. Taleteller and Morgan return from their trip. Lilac usually stays in her spot by the fan. Blueberry runs into the kitchen, gets Morgan excited like she's going to play, then runs into the crate where Morgan can't get her. Bunny cautiously approaches Morgan and they share a sniff fest. I can just hear the two of them having their little catch up chat.
Bunny: Where have you been? What did you do? Who's that dog I smell on you?
Morgan: Dad and I went to class. There were several other dogs there!
Bunny: Oh, of course! Trained monkey school! How did it go?
Morgan: What? There weren't any monkeys. It was just dogs and people. I had to demonstrate the recall for all of them.
Bunny: After you graduate from class, Dad makes jokes about you being a trained monkey. My advice is to only be obedient for Mom. I am glad that it went well, though!
Morgan: Really? No! He wouldn't! He even took me to the dog bakery after it was over.
Bunny: You went SHOPPING?! DAAAAAAD!
Mr. Taleteller: I got treats for everyone! Look, here are a couple of toys I got, too!
Bunny: Okay, one for me, one for you!
Morgan: Good deal! Say, what did you do this morning?
Bunny: Oh, Mom and I had a great session of "rub my belly" followed by a long snuggle on the couch! It was a perfect morning!
Morgan: Mine, too!
