I am in the dog house tonight! In fact I have gone to bed early with my Dad and I am not keeping my Mom company tonight.
I got a spanking this afternoon from my Mom and she has given me the cold shoulder all night. I did not blog last night because I was so embarrassed .... and today ... well it wasn't much better. Like I said ... I got a spanking today, even though my Mom told me she shouldn't have spanked me. She said she is pretty sure I didn't know what I was getting a spanking for.
I know many of you have been following my prison saga. First let me say that my Mom has tried piddle pads (I don't pee on them and I tear them up.) but not litter. She tried spraying apple bitter on the cage ... more about that in a minute. She has tried putting me in the kennel .... I mean prison for short pleasant stays when she is home and she fed me dinner in it tonight. She has done everything she knows to do and read web sites and talked to Dr Cindy.
Dr Cindy looked at my teeth and said they were fine. She said I did have a place where I bit my mouth ... it was swollen. She does not want to put me on medicine because she says we still have to train me. Mom asked if she was doing everything right ..... training me .... and Dr Cindy says yes. (Mom wonders though if she wasn't just being nice though.) So, Sunday night Dr Cindy said to Mom to put me in the metal prison kennel on Monday but to give me a blanket.
So Mom sprayed apple bitter on the cage and gave me my favorite blanket yesterday. Do you know that if you chew a hole in your favorite soft fluffy blanket that feathers get all over you and all over the kitchen and in the air and everywhere and you have to lay in them until Mom gets home? How was I suppose to know it would do that? Plus, if you chew on your kennel and it tastes like Apple Bitter, you have to get a lot of huge drinks when your Mom gets home to get the awful taste out of your mouth. Yesterday was a no good horrible bad day. I don't know who felt worse .... me .. or Mom.
So today Mom put away the metal kennel prison and put my soft sided kennel, which I will sleep in and go lay in sometimes on my own ... ride in the car in on trips ... the one I like ... she put it in the kitchen but did not zip me up in it. The door was velcroed up so I could go in and out. She put nice blankets in it and left me lots of toys. She turned on the TV to Animal Planet. I had water and a bone with my favorite recipe. The only thing I did not have was a manicure and a massage. Then she went to work.
When she came home, I had chewed up a place on the kennel and tinkled on every blanket. I had even pulled the cover off the kennel, the one she made to make it dark and private, and tinkled on that. I got a spanking, I think because Mom is so frustrated. She knew she shouldn't be spanking me but she was so mad and so frustrated she did. She even called Hershey's Mom and said she might have to get rid of me ... snif snif.
She said that because she is frustrated (but so and I) and she has a lot of stuff to do for Christmas and parties to go to and things to make and a stressful job and groceries to get and she even had to vote today. She said to Hershey's Mom that maybe she doesn't have time for me and maybe I need a home where the people are home all time time like at Isabella's house. She also said maybe I need a brother or a sister. She may look for one. But she thinks if she does not have time for one dog, how is she going to have time for two dogs.
