Hi friends, Achilles here. You remember me, right? (Anyone needing to get caught up can click here for my introduction.)
I have always liked magic tricks. I’m pretty good at them too! Recently I’ve been trying to show my New Mom how good I am at magic. She’s so impressed, she calls me a regular Houdini. Make that Achilles-dini. My latest performance was that of legend. Here’s what happened:
Mom put me in my kennel and gave me my biscuit for being the good boy that I am. That’s when I immediately decided to pee. (No, that wasn’t the magic trick.) Apparently she wasn’t too fond of my decision and said a few very loud choice words before taking away my blankets. When New Mom then put me back in my kennel she didn’t give me any blankets. I think I was being punished, even though she was only going to be gone for a few minutes. She also closed the door to the room that I’m in so that my new sister couldn’t keep me company. She was upset because I made her late.
Well I figured what a better way to cheer her up than my ultimate magic trick! When New Mom came home I was outside of my kennel and had opened the door to the room!! I was so incredibly proud of myself! I met mom at the door and exclaimed, “I am the great Achilles-dini!!” Boy, was New Mom surprised! At first she thought I was a “bad boy.” Sometimes New Mom talks like her lips don’t fit. So I thought I would share my day with her, like I hear her and New Dad do. I told her about playing with the toys. And guarding the house, and playing with Ella.
At the end of the day she told me I had a great magic trick and I got plenty of hugs and kisses. I think I’m winning my new family over!
I am the loved and magical Achilles-dini.
PeeS I got out of the kennel without opening it. It’s my secret how I did that, too.
