Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

My mama owed me

Katie here!  I think it’s been a bazillion years since mama has let me write on her blog!  That’s because she went away for a hundred million days and I had to go to doggie camp.  She thinks it’s a doggie camp  but it’s not like real camping and I should know!  We don’t get to sleep in tents or sit around the campfire singing Kumbaya.  Mama is just fooling herself.

But I digress.  Mama owed me big time for that long camp stay and so she set up a play date for me and Peep!

Meet my friend Peep!

You remember Peep, right?  She’s a Swedish Vallhund and she and I like to go on long walks in the woods.  We let our mamas come along too.  Mostly because they drive better than us.  And because they have treats.

Did someone say treats?

So anyway, we went to the park that Peep’s mom showed us last fall!  My mama and I have been going there a lot, and we wanted to show Peep the trail we’ve been walking on.  It is really pretty right now with all the fallen leaves!

We had a beautiful day, sunny and pretty warm, but not too warm, you know what I mean?  Too warm is not good, because a princess (like me) doesn’t want to sweat in front of her subjects.    If I, the princess, get too warm then everyone is going to have to deal with me, and it’s not pretty I tell you!

Mama kept trying to get a picture of the two of us together but we weren’t very interested in sitting nicely beside each other.  We like each other and all, but it seemed like a waste of a good day in the woods to sit there quietly when there was so much stuff to smell!

This is silly.

But finally we sat sort of near each other.  Then my mama called “COME!” and I took off running toward her.

 

Coming mama!

Notice how good Peep is?  She didn’t move a muscle because it wasn’t HER mom that called!

You've got cheese...right?

I just kept going toward my mama cause I knew I’d get a treat (and I had seen her cut up that cheese before we left, I haven’t had cheese in a really long time and I wanted to get to her before Peep found out she had anything good!).

 

TREATS!!!

TREATS!!!

Then Peep’s mom called and Peep got to run over there for a treat too!  We are both very good girls, and nobody tries to grab anyone’s treat.

Got anything good mom?

We had a really awesome time and we got to walk a very long way.  I personally think our mamas were lost, but they’ll never admit it.  We didn’t care, that just meant we got more time in the woods.  We had fun running around.

I’m pretty sure Peep is sleeping now….I know I’m going to take a little nap myself.  When we got home I had to get brushed some more…I guess I had a few hundred burs in my fur.  I was good about that too, even when my mama said stuff like “oh dear” and “I’m getting the sissors” I didn’t worry too much.  It’s all worth it just to have time in the woods with my mama and Peep and her mom.

I hope we get to do it again, but it’s probably not going to be until next spring cause it’s hunting season around here now.  I look a lot like a deer don’t you know.  A very fashionable deer, but a deer none the less.  So we’ll probably stick to my little park for awhile.

I think I should invite Peep over to do my park, don’t you?

Peep ....a very good girlfriend!

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.

  5. What fun. A playdate and a walk in the woods. Impressive recall, too! Staying out of the woods and away from the hunters is a good idea. A playdate at the little park sounds like a wonderful idea.
