While Daddy's Away . . .
Last week, Daddy was out of town for a few days. Apparently our world falls apart when Daddy isn't here!
The weather was FABULOUS while Daddy was away, so we were able to play outside A LOT! Unfortunately, that's where our world started having a bit of difficulty.
First, Mommy threw my favorite toy into a tree! She's done this before, but usually it's a short tree or it lands fairly close to the bottom of the tree. Not this time! And naturally, the tallest person in our family was out of town! Mommy had to go into the garage and retrieve the telescoping light bulb changer. It was the only item tall enough for Mommy to knock the toy down. Mommy didn't stop long enough to take a picture (thankfully and surprisingly), but I'll show you where the toy was:
Not even five minutes later, and we had another small problem. Mommy threw Dixie's tennis ball over the fence! This definitely isn't the first time Mommy (or Daddy) has done this, and it's an easy fix. The worst part of this problem is we have to listen to Dixie bark her head off until the ball is back on our side of the fence and in her mouth!
Mommy reported her short comings to Daddy. He only asked that she please not break us while he was gone. [sigh] He still blames Mommy for breaking Hunter (twice). Both times Hunter tore his ACL, Mommy was on duty. When Dixie jumped off the table on the deck as a puppy and broke her toe, guess who was responsible for putting her up there? Yep, Mommy! So far I've escaped Mommy's torture, but I fear I might be broken one day too . . . accidentally, of course! No offense, Mommy!
Daddy is back in town and all is right in the world . . . for now! [sigh]
PS: Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hopefully you're wearing green and won't be pinched. Dixie and I aren't so fortunate . . .
