Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

I’m home!


This is MY house!

This is MY house!

Attention! Attention! Ahem….excuse-moi!
Katie here. I would like to announce that I have been rescued from “camp.” It was a long, grueling two weeks but I made it. Because I am a princess and a princess never shows fear. A princess is strong. And regal. And a princess never forgets. Ever.

I can not believe my mama took me to that place! She had only been home for two days and I wasn’t nearly finished playing with her when suddenly she took me for a ride and left me there!! She said she was really sad when she dropped me off and she even cried in the car after, but I don’t believe it.

I’m not even sure I want to talk to her, though I did howl all the way home from camp. Mama tried to talk to me but I would not listen and would hardly look at her while we were driving home. I didn’t trust her when she said we were going to see daddy.

But then we pulled into my driveway. Mama had opened the windows and I was sniffing (it’s hard to howl and sniff at the same time, I think mama did this on purpose!) and I could tell it was my house so I started pawing at my crate door real hard and mama laughed and let me out. She set me down on the driveway and I ran as fast as I could to the front door and pressed my nose into the wood waiting for my mama to open the door!

As soon as she did I raced inside straight to my daddy and then around and around the living room, and then I raced down the hall to check out the bedrooms and then I ran to the kitchen just to see if it was still there (cause that’s my favorite room) and then I ran back out into the living room and barked at my people. I told them off!

Then I brought my mama a toy and we played for a little bit.

This is my toy!

This is my toy!

Then we went outside so I could pee cause all this running and jumping and barking got me all excited you know. And then we walked all around my back yard so I could check it all out and I flopped down in the shade ready to get back to work guarding my house against anything noisy on my road.

I guess I’ve forgiven mama. She’s sitting out here on my deck with me while I keep watch. I haven’t closed my eyes once since I’ve been home but I’m starting to think a little nap might be in order

I’m glad to be home.

Happy sigh....zzzzzzzzzz...

Happy sigh….zzzzzzzzzz…

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. I am impressed, Katie, that you’ve forgiven mama so quickly. I mean, she did leave you two times in a row!


  2. We are glad to hear from you darling katie. Appreciate your forgiving heart!


  3. OMG — 2 weeks is = forever !


  4. Poor Katie. Dallas sympathizes. It’s hard when mamas run off and leave you at camp, but she finally rescued you. Now, it’s your job to make sure she knows how put upon you feel!


  5. She is so adorable!!! I can’t wait to get caught up on your posts. I’ve missed them, and Katie’s.


  6. Coming home is always a great feeling.
