Katie here! Hey remember last weekend when my mama took me to my park for the first time since we got all this snow? And how much fun I had even though it was wet and cold? Well today my mama was sitting on the sofa and she told my dad that it was too bad she was so tired. Because if she wasn’t so tired she’d take me somewhere fun cause it was really pretty outside.
And do you know what my dad did? He said to me…..”I bet you want to go to the park don’t you Katie, go for a ride? Do you want go GO Katie?” Dad was pretending not to notice mama’s evil eye. Well! I got so wound up that I could hardly stand it! I began to bark and run to the front door and then run back and bark at my mama and then run to the door….you get the picture…right?
Mama yelled at my dad but she really didn’t have any choice. So she put me in the car and we went to the park! I knew that bribe I paid my dad would work and it sure did! And it was worth every bit of my allowance too!
This weekend there wasn’t any snow left over at my park. Well, a little bit, but I just kissed it goodbye!
We got to walk all the way around the park and my mama let me sniff wherever I wanted. Except she wouldn’t let me go down the hill to check out the railroad track, I don’t know why. Sometimes my mama isn’t very adventurous.
She took a lot of pictures of the grassy meadow and the back pond too. I don’t understand that, she should be focused on me! But she’s weird that way and I tolerate it because while she’s doing that I can wander around. I always come right back when she calls, though, because I love her. And because she has treats in her pocket.
We got to walk around my pond too. It still had some ice on it, but that just made it more pretty. Of course it’s not prettier than me, but it’s nice. In a chilly sort of way.
It smelled good too. But I didn’t get too close. I’m a princess you know.
I had a really nice time and even mama got over being mad at dad. She says she thinks she might have heard a frog which would mean spring really is here. There were definitely a lot of birds singing there, and ducks and geese too. I only chased one robin; mostly I was interested in all the great pee-mail that was left by all the dogs before me. I left quite a few messages myself.
So anyway, I wanted to say THANKS DAD for getting mama off the sofa. I don’t think you should do it again real soon though. You can trick a mama once, but twice in one weekend would probably be too much to hope for.
I’ve got other ways to get her to take me out for adventures, don’t you know.
We’ll talk later.
