Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.



Katie here.  I just can not believe it.  Never would I think my Mama would cheat on me!  Not me!  I’m the P.R.I.N.C.E.S.S.!

But Mama and Dad went away for the weekend and they didn’t take me!  I had to go to the doggie spa!  And it gets worse!

Mama with Chris and Ricky!

Mama with Chris and Ricky!

They went behind my back and met Ricky!  Yes!  THE Ricky!  Without me!  How could they!

And now Mama keeps talking about how cute he is.  How he’s tiny.  And adorable.  And quieter then me.

Geeze.  Well let me tell you, when she came to pick me up on Sunday I told her off.  And I kept telling her off all the way home.  I used my outside voice too.  Even when we got home and I got to see my Dad I was still mad.  And I made sure they knew it.  Yes I did.

You know what?  They SMELLED like Ricky!  Did they think I wouldn’t figure it out?  Huh.  Parents.  What are you going to do with them.

Of course now Mom’s all like “We’ll take you with us next time Katie.”  Yea sure.  I never get to do anything fun.

But I got my revenge.  I got my Mama up on Monday morning at 5:30.  Just cause I can.  I hope they’ve learned their lesson.

Now I need a nap.  These people wear me out.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. We agree…they cheated on you! We can’t imagine they would visit the ‘Ricky’ and not take you……and then to come home smelling of him too!


  2. Katie I don’t blame you for being upset one bit!!!! I would be too! Hey! Tell your Mom since she is in Michigan too, that you and I need to meet! I’m a loud Sheltie too! Barks and licks and love, Dakota


  3. Girls just wanna have fun. Every day. All the time.


  4. Oh Princess Katie, how could they visit Ricky without taking you along with them. Yap! you did the right thing to your mom and dad, they should be told off. Seriously, they had better learn the lesson and take you with them next time. Can’t wait to see the pictures of Princess Katie and Prince Ricky instead of the two moms.


  5. It wasn’t all that great, Katie. I mean yes, I got lots of attention and oohhs and aahhs, but there were lots of boring parts – talking and talking – and they kept me up way past my bedtime. When we get together, I will prove that I can be just as loud as you!


  6. Poor, poor Katie girl. You definitely deserve a play date with Ricky. You should be glad he turned out to be a gentleman, otherwise your mama might have tried to keep you two apart forever!


  7. Katie, good for you for reminding your mama that those who cheat always get caught!


  8. Oh, dear Katie, you sound just like my Dallas! He ALWAYS knows when mama goes “cheating” on him, and he doesn’t like it ONE BIT!! Fortunately, mama is trained not to brag up the other dogs (especially the weight part!). Good for you, getting revenge by getting her up early — she deserved that, heehee!


  9. Cheater, cheater pumpkin eater.


  10. Bowsers, we would have been upset too. Did your Mom bring any treats to make you feel all better?

  11. Mommy loves reading this post! Especially the comments! It’s better than her soap opera Y&R! It’s like a Sheltie BlogTime Drama Series!

    I can’t wait to see if Chris & Ricky will respond to Dawn’s comment, “Wait a minute Ricky! I thought you LOVED me! “!

    Will Ricky have a clever come-back and say he does love Dawn and that she wasn’t boring at times!

    If Ricky does come back with a clever comeback — what will Princess Katie think!

    The suspense is driving us Shelties Crazy!!!!


  12. Hiya Katie,
    They saw Ricky?! Without you?! I can’t believe how unfair this is. You go bark at them and woof at them until they take you next time! And they smelt of him? Ooooo, this is bad! Have they been cuddling Ricky more than they cuddle you? Oh, I hope not, because you’re such an adorable little girly!
    Pippa 🙂


  13. How funny is this! (Oh, excuse me Katie, I know it’s not funny to YOU.) Parents can be so maddening.


  14. You know what Katie? Sometimes Dad helps out on a friend’s farm and he comes home smelling of two dogs, three cats, and a calf. Mum says he is a traitor!! I sniff him all over to see what he’s been up to but I forgive him pretty quickly.
