Zoey was thrilled as a dog at dinnertime by the feedback we got after her debut post: Zen Pen from Zoey.
I'm thrilled to report that my 'mini-me' muse of a mutt is at it again ... scribing with dogged determination--like a dog with a bone.
Oh, you get the idea...
Today sure has been rainy. Andy and I counted rain drops as we perched in the bay window - waiting for Daddy and Mom to return from work.
Yippee...!! Mom opened the garage door - I could almost smell the treats heading our way - after we took care of our business. Mom uses funny words, that's for sure. Like she says business and I say _______(sorry, Mom made me take that word out)!
Things became a blur real fast.
I was happy when Mom gave Andy and me hugs, as she opened the door to the sun porch (which is a funny name when you stop and think about it).
Next I proceeded to run across the pool cover... wait, that doesn't make sense to you? I always run across the pool cover. You could say it's my thang!
In one wag of a tail, I was down. I mean, I was sinking fast in the middle of the pool. This was more water than I'd ever seen in one dog bowl. I couldn't move my paws. It was really scary!
In a flash, I saw my Mom. She can run - who knew? She started singing my name over and over again. Quite weird, as she can be, but I found myself calming down. I felt safe.
Then, Mom got down on her hands and knees. She didn't even care that she was getting soaked, she just kept singing my name. So, I started putting one paw in front of the other, in Mom's direction.
I noticed Andy. He faithfully stayed on the side lines cuz we are the only two Labs in the world who can't swim! Yet, he was telling me, in his brotherly way, to keep calm as Mom pulled me to safety by my collar, inch by inch.
Quickly, I found myself surrounded by hugs and love, even Andy's tail was wagging a mile a minute. We all headed to the sun porch, which felt right warm and cozy, and Mom gave us towel time. We love that! Sure feels good when we're all wet and slippery.
I told Daddy what happened the minute he got home, before he could even take off his coat! I know he loves that. Aren't I a sarcastic dawg?
We made Mom some tea. What the heck else can you do?
She sipped it, heating pad around her shoulders, while watching The Poseidon Adventure, clearly riveted to Shelly Winters' story line ...and this song, oh wow, maybe she will stop playing it the morning after.
Corny songs aside, I can tell you one thing, my Mom loves me and would do anything for me. That loyalty goes both ways, now and furrever.
Oh, and guess what! I’ll just tell you!Well, I'll show you!
Mom's friend, Aunt Sannel Larson, made this beautiful portrait of me! I love having my mug on the wall with Andy, Aunt Baby and Alvin, and having the only name that starts with Z! ☺
Wishing you a happy and safe week.
