Arrroooo Yahoooo, am I pooped! I am sooo sleepy but I just don't want to close my eyes. If I close my eyes, I will sleep
so long that my "Gotcha Day" will be over! Oh, what a day! I started the day out doing what I like best… sleeping
in late with Mommy.
Then, when we got up, Mommy made me a batch of "Frosty Paws" dog treats. I knew
they were for me, so I watched Mommy really close while she was making them. I even did my Beagle dance around the kitchen
and tried to jump on the counter when Mommy wasn't looking! I even got to lick out the bowl (Daddy usually gets to do that).
Is this "Gotcha Day" some'tn else, or what?
After I got to lick out the frosty paw batter, Mommy said
I had to wait till they "freeze". I don't understand that, but that's OK cuz Mommy gave me a biscuit (or two) instead
and I didn't even have to ask! Wow!
Well, if that wasn't enough… while we were waiting for the silly "freezer",
Mommy and Daddy took me to PetsMart. I walked all around and visited with the kitties and all the children there. I got
to visit with my favorite friend, the $450 conure bird. (Still don't know why Daddy won't buy him for me!!). I also made
new friends with a $99 horned toad! (Daddy didn't buy him, either! Bummer!) But, Mommy bought some Beggin Strips. Yummy
Yummy! She keeps those in a jar and I get one at bed time! Not a good thing to run out!
After a brisk trot through
PetsMart, off we went to our pik-nik. Mommy and Daddy took me to a park I had never been to before. There is a neat-o pond,
and trees, and woods, and trash cans. Arrroooooo was I so happy, I smelled around everywhere. I do mean everywhere. My
nose was in overdrive! When we ate our pik-nik, I got plenty of Doggy treats! Mommy takes then along in a baggie (Hey,
is that a "Doggie Bag"?)
Well, after we walked and ate and walked some more… then it was time to go
home and get the "Frosty Paws". Mommy gave me two! Ooooohhhhh soooooo yummy! Mommy even got Daddy to sing "Happy
Gotcha Day" to me! I wanted to hear it again, but Daddy said he would only sing once!
So, here I
am... pooped as can be. But today was such fun, I don't want it to end!
