Worst! Morning! Ever!

I just had the most worstest morning EVER!

Mummy and I got up at 5:40 like normal for our morning walk, but Mummy was looking outside and looking outside and saying things like, "You're not going to like it," and "It's raining," but I wanted to go on my walk. We got downstairs and she put on her sweater like normal, but then she put on another jacket too. And put on my collar and leash, but then! Then! THEN! She took this THING out of the closet! It was long and pointy, and didn't look too bad, then. But then she opened the door. And it was RAINING! And I wasn't sure about that, but darn it, it's my walk. So I went outside, and Mummy followed me. And then the THING! The THING! Mummy did something to it, and it wasn't long and pointy anymore, it was BIG and ROUND, and Mummy put it over her head, and it started to make noise, and I thought it was going to eat her HEAD! I was scared! Mummy said everything was okay, that it was just an "um-ber-ell-a," and she tried to put it over my head, but I was NOT going to have any of eating my head stuff. And I was getting wet! So we started walking, but I kept checking to make sure Mummy still had her head, and sometimes the THING would make a loud noise and I figured it would just be easier to walk behind Mummy to make sure it wasn't eating her. And I was getting wet, because it was raining, and it wasn't a nice walk AT ALL. We only did one of the shorter routes, but between the wet and making sure the THING didn't eat Mummy, I was happy to get back to the house. Mummy let me in and dried me off good, and I went upstairs to cuddle with Daddy, but when Mummy up to lay down for a bit, I got mad at her for such a crummy walk, so I didn't give her any room.

THEN! THEN! After breakfast, Mummy let me outside and it had stopped raining, which was good, but it still wasn't too nice out there, so I did my business and came to the door. But Mummy didn't come to let me in. So I wandered around again, and came to the door. And Mummy STILL didn't come to let me in! She didn't come to let me in for a LONG TIME! All this after the crummy walk and the THING too! Finally she did, and I was pretty mad by this point, and she said she was sorry, that she'd got busy in the kitchen and stuff, and I LET her wipe my paws, but then I ran STRAIGHT upstairs to Daddy. Daddy loves me...

I tell you. Mummy had better make this up to me. She'd better give me a popsicle today. Yum, popsicle.

I *am* comfortable, TYVM

Umm... Why are you asking?

And I'm not copying Terri! It just... kind of seems like it...

My sweater!

My sweater is done!

It fits too!

But it feels kind of funny. Not like what I'm used to...

But I got used to it pretty quick! It was comfy to walk in. Not too warm and not too cold either! I like it! And it's yarn!

Mummy's almost done my sweater!

I can't wait until she finishes it! She promises to have it done by the next greyhound walk!

I'm sorry, Mummy and Daddy

I'm a little stressed out right now...

Last week Darwin came to stay with us.

He's a pretty nice guy, but I think we're on different wavelengths. Like, when he got here last week, he was sure that my round bed was his! And he wasn't taking no for an answer. And he barks a lot, and even howls, and when I come to see what he's making noise at, it's just someone in the field, or something. And then, like today, I think he wants to play, but he doesn't play any way that I know how to play, and I get scared. Then Mummy or Daddy opens the door, and that means it's time to go in. He likes Mummy and Daddy a lot, and is always going to them for cuddles and hugs. I'm not jealous, really I'm not (but I am sleeping in their bed with them at night, so there!).

Not fair

Mummy gets in these moods sometimes. When she gets in these moods, she takes away places for me to lie down. She takes the blankets off the couch and then for some weird reason I'm not allowed to be on it until she puts them back, and she doesn't put them back for hours! She takes them downstairs and does something with them, and I'm not allowed to lie on the couch. And then she'll put them back on the couch, but then I'm not allowed to lie on my bed upstairs because the cover is off and downstairs like the blankets were! And then sometimes, she'll even take my bed and all my carefully arranged toys and pillow and blanket and mess them all up and put them on Mummy and Daddy's bed, and then use the scary loud carpet sucker thing! And then when she puts my bed back, the cover still isn't on it, and nothing's the way I had it! It's not fair! But I showed her...

So there.

And then Daddy steals one of my toys. Seriously.

A couple weekends ago, just after Banner left, Mummy and Daddy took me in the not-Priestmobile to this neat place. They called it the "Pet Expo." There were greyhounds there! And lots and lots of people!

I had on my dress collar and my red leash, and I wanted to go exploring! We did a little, but mostly we hung out with the greyhounds.

Lots of people stopped by to talk to our people about us! They said we were elegant and pretty, and asked lots of questions and gave us lots of love. Lots and lots of love...

There got to be so many people that Cloudy had had enough and hid under the table!

It even got to be enough for me. There was so much petting and loving and things to see and do that I didn't even want to explore any more. I just stood next to Mummy and Daddy, and I even didn't want to go meet more new people. Finally Mummy and Daddy took me home. It was a lot of fun, but exhausting! I slept for two days!

Mummy says this winter has been really weird. I'll agree with that. It's slippery out there right now! Mummy says she doesn't want to take me for walks in the dark, because she says her two feet slip more easily than my four, and the dark won't help. My four slip a lot too! We did walk to the dog park yesterday afternoon, and we were almost home when we met a German Shepherd. Apparently I scared him by standing there, because one second he was happy to meet me, and the next he wasn't! It was strange, and then I didn't get to meet the other dog. Maybe the weird weather is affecting everyone.

Mummy says she's knitting me a sweater. She tried it on me the other day, and that was exciting, because it was yarn! But it only came over my head and across my chest, so I don't think she's done.

Mummy and Daddy also say I've been acting a little weird. Well, maybe I miss Banner, and maybe the weather hasn't been helping, and maybe the trip to Calgary last weekend made me really tired because I don't sleep as much. I think I'll just keep it to myself, though, whatever it is, and make them keep guessing.
