The deck is a great place to go sun-bathing. Seriously, the warm sun shining down on me, warming me and making me feel at peace. Ok, so now I sound like a hippie. But really, it is so cool ( I mean hot). I get to lie there and dream about Boomer, and after a while my sister always comes to give me a tummy-rub. It is wonderful. That is what I did today, too. My mom and sister went off to see that darn horse after school ( I ended up NOT getting a tummy-rub) and left me here! There were more workers here putting electricity and running water in the barn, so the noise messed-up my sun-bathing a little. When daddy came home I lay down by the side of the house and kept watch down the driveway for mommy to come home. You see, my humans didn't have anyone to guard the house while mommy was away, so I took it upon myself that this was my job. I lie there, and if it is someone I know driving to the house, I turn into the greeting party, running halfway down the driveway so I can follow the car home. If it's a stranger, I run a quarter way down the drive. I suppose that doesn't make much of a difference, but.....If I don't like the person who happens to come I give a (feeble) growl, and hide in my cage. I know, I'm a coward. I can't help it, though! Besides, I like most people, so I normally (should) have good reasons for hiding, although I admit, I hide sometimes just for the fun of it, too. If it is late at night and I am home alone I stay sleeping in my cage, and I come to the window when my family comes. My family somehow always knows when I did something bad(went through the garbage, got the litter box stuck on my head[read that story here], ate all the bread &/or cat food, etc.). I wonder if it has something to do with the fact that I don't greet them at the door? Hmmmmm........That's something to examine. Anyway, that is the day I had today...I hope all you blogger-dogs had a good day, too. I need to go in my bed now, my sis is coming soon, too. Good-night!!!

Oh Abby, Abby, Abby, honey, you are not a coward! And when I sun-bathe I dream about you too. Your sparkling eyes, your wet nose, all your lovley details...

Abby said...

Oh, well thank you Boomer. I am baffled. You have such a way with words. We really do think of each other even when apart. I miss you so much. I hope you find new doggy-friends in that place faraway.
Love,
Abby
