Here I am, sleeping like an angel. Move over, Mom! Woof!
Whoever invented covers ought to get some kind of award. They are the best things ever! Now that I have found the covers, I don’t know how I ever got along without them. Soooo comfy.
Mom was really sore at me, despite my leaving adorable pictures on her computer to soften her up.
Jamie got sick in school today, and Mom had to run and grab him, and didn’t have time to put me in the crate since it was an emergency. 20 minutes flat and I destroyed the house. I guess I still have my anxiety issues at separation.
I don’t think Mom would have been so angry except that Jamie was ill and she had to deal with that, and on top of it I really left her a mess to clean. She had just mopped the floors, too, and in hindsight, it probably wasn’t the best idea to toss the garbage can over. But I didn’t realize Jamie was sick! I thought Mom was just leaving me. When Mom got Jamie home, I jumped into bed with him and rolled over so that the entire length of my body was pressing against him. I wanted him to know that I was sorry he wasn’t feeling well. I stayed with him until he got up. Then we both had a snack and I sat with him on the couch. I suppose Mom’s not too mad at me anymore, seeing as how I helped take care of Jamie.
Speaking of snacks, here’s a recipe for dog treats that was suggested by Far Fetched Friends (www.farfetchedfriends.wordpress.com):
Homemade Dog Treat Recipe
Peanut Butter Puppy Poppers
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 375’F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container.
When Mom bakes the treats, she’s going to post a picture! That is, when I’m out of the doghouse!
