A few weeks ago, Hershey left me to go back home so his baby sister could learn to sleep through the night ..... in her own bed ..... and so Nixon could sleep on top of the kitchen cabinets again (I tell you cats are WEIRD!) I said goodbye to Hershey and I was sad. Well, very shortly after he left, my Mom decided to mow the grass outside my little fence and I decided I was lonely and wanted my Mommy. In a few minutes Mom looked down at her feet and thought "My, that dog looks a lot like Copper ... wait... that is Copper!" She decided that maybe, just maybe, she had not shut the gate when she went out of the fence and ... you guessed it ... she put me back in the fence. Five minutes later I was at her side again. What can I say, I was lonely. Hershey had just left and I didn't want to be alone! So, Mom and Dad fixed this elaborate tacky net thing over the gate, right at the place where I can slip though. Tomorrow the fence man is coming to fix the gate and make it so that only super duper skinny dogs (skinner than me) can get through that spot in the gate and so that they can take the super duper tacky net thing off the gate.
Well, last night Mom and Dad left me outside again. It was a lovely night and the neighbor kids were out in their yards playing and talking. A new 14 years old girl (I didn't get to ask her what her name was) just moved in across the street and the 14 year old boy next door was talking to her.... wasn't that nice of him? I am glad he is making her feel welcome in the neighborhood, which was just what was trying to do, until I was rudely picked up .... but wait, I am getting ahead of myself. As I was saying ..... I saw the pretty girl and I thought it would be nice of me to go meet her and welcome her to the neighborhood .... you know, maybe take her some brownies........ ? So I found ANOTHER place I could slip out of the fence and I went across the street to see her. Well, apparently I am not allowed to do that because the big kids picked me up and put me back in the yard and Miss Cindy, who is in cahoots with my Mom, put me in my HOUSE! When my parents got home from their little errand, they thought "Oh, how nice, Miss Cindy put Copper in the house because it was raining! Awww!" They called Miss Cindy to thank her and she RATTED on me!
So, now my Mom is cooking up some sort of maximum security fencing arrangement so that not even baby lizards can get out of my yard!!!! She says I have to go back to staying in the evil kitchen when she leaves the house. No more sunbathing in the yard by myself. No more long cool evenings barking at people as they pass by the house. I am so bummed out. It's so not fair. I was just trying to be friendly.
This is an old picture of me and Hershey when he was a puppy but you can see the fence. The new escape place is on the right side of the picture near the white bench. It won't be there much longer though. Mom is going to fix it with barbed electric razor wire like they have in prisons.
Mom is for sale again. Any takers? Hana, can I donate her to the auction?
