Where’s Lucy?

Today was really different than most of my Thursdays. My big sister Lucy jumped into the back seat of the car and went to work with me and Mommy. Strangely enough, just knowing Lucy was in the car made me feel braver. I didn’t shake on the way like usual. Lucy told me she was almost the church dog, but it didn’t really work out. Sure enough, everyone knew her name and seemed happy to see her. I kept feeling braver. Whenever I heard someone come in, I barked and barked. Mommy kept telling me to stop barking. “Be quiet!” she said over and over. I thought she wanted me to be brave. “Well, I do,” Mommy said. “But that’s not brave – that’s obnoxious.”

When I showed Lucy my bed, she said it was her bed, too, when she was here. “It’s mine, now,” I said. “And do you see all these toys? Big Bear, Rope Chew, Blue Bone, and Hedgehog? They are all mine, too.”

After I made sure Lucy knew the boundaries, we played and argued over who should get pet every time someone came in our my office.

Mostly we played. Pretty soon it was time to go home.  When we went outside, I got another surprise. Daddy was there, and he put Lucy in the car and left me and Mommy the truck. There was so much stuff in the car that Lucy barely fit in the back seat.

“Mommy, where’s Lucy and Daddy? Shouldn’t they be home by now?”

  5. Xena did you know when you get really excited or scared you bend your ears in half over your head? Do you also do the I ear at a time look like your brother Socrates does? He hops like a bunny when he’s really happy. And he looks at you like…..I don’t know about this…. just like your last picture………..We can’t wait to hear about your next adventure.

    1. I know I do, Grammy. Mommy keeps putting them right, but they just go back until I am settled down. Sometimes one ear flops over, but not as often as it used to. I think Mommy is training it by just pushing it back to what she calls normal. I still bunny hop too!! (Do we have rabbit in our schnauzer line? Maybe Scottish Fold?)


  6. Oh noes, Xena! So many questions to answer here. Where did Daddy take Lucy? Why didn’t she become the church-Dog? Is it a Christmas or Holiday surprise? Why do you keep barking? BOL! And MOL! Will we discover the answers tomorrow? We cannot wait! Patzy
