Pooch Talk aka Sleepless in Idaho
My "doggy" drove me a bit nuts again last night ... I've been a good pet owner, and have been taking her on long walks daily, she's well fed, has a little boy that has a love/hate relationship with her (it goes both ways I'm sure). She was fed, watered and put away for the night in her kennel inside our cozy home ... then around 1:03 AM she starts yipping. Being the good pet owner that I am, I put on my winter robe ... shoes ... and took her out in the backyard to go tinkle. She didn't have to go ... back to bed ... five more minutes of sleep ... then yip, yip, yip. Up one more time, I gave her a nice drink of water ... then back to bed ... not what she wanted. Yip, yip again. I got out her muzzle and put it on her ... Now, I'm back in bed and can hear her trying to yip and whine through the muzzle ... up once again and this time, I'm YELLING though the house (something about a Korean meat market). Out to the cold garage. Back to bed. Yip, yip. Up again to put on the muzzle again. How many times is that to get up? Nathan also got me up at least twice. This really is not the norm for her ... wish I could understand doggy yip, but I only know a few "words" ... I hope she behaves better tonight ... Mom is arriving today. PLEASE MISS HOLLY, BE GOOD FOR GRANDMA! Tomorrow I may share the story of our previous "mystery" dog ... stay tooned.
