Riley plus a Thanksgiving Weekend Surprise

Riley spent the night with us again. His Dad gave him a bath, so at least he smelled good and didn’t have any fleas. It was kinda strange…he mostly ignored me and Lucy. When he wasn’t watching for his Dad to come back, he followed Mommy around wagging his tail.

Mommy even made up a song about it. Bet you know the tune!
If you’re happy and you know it wag your tail. *thump thump*
If you’re happy and you know it wag your tail. *thump thump*
If you’re happy and you know it then your tail will surely show it, if you’re happy and you know it wag your tail. *thump thump*
Oh, and you’re welcome for the ear worm BOL!

Riley was all feet on-board when he heard we were going to walk around the neighborhood.

Later that evening I ended up on the grooming table. Mommy explained that we were getting company. She didn’t know that Lucy had already gotten a message from her BFF and her Boyfriend.

“Hi girlfriend! We’ve got great news. We’re coming to stay with you all weekend over the Thanksgiving holiday!

Auntie Jen and Uncle Bill are coming with them. But then the B.A.D. news hit! The peeps are all going away right after Thanksgiving Day until Monday – yes, for 87 days! Yes, yes, I know our sitter Christy will be here, but I want to go with Mommy. Maybe she could take just me! Yes, that’s it, just me. I’ll be really, really good, Mommy! I promise! Please don’t leave me here all by myself!

I’m Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess, bravely fighting for the right to go with my Mommy.

Pee S. Happy Turkey Day

    1. It didn’t smell good, Ruby, and it was moving all around and really loud! I’m not going near it, and Lucy isn’t one to grab that stuffies or balls or chipmunks or anything, XOX Xena


    1. We’re VERY good walkers, Miss Monika! Mommy is even leaving our sitter instructions on how to use our harnesses. Dang, she even included a statement about not believing me when I tell her I walk without a harness or leash. XOX Xena

  2. Riley on the sofa waiting and hoping that his dad will come has melted my heart! And I laughed myself silly Lucy and eggs Inna watching the turkey. I left this so you could see how the silly Google person that I talk to to type spelled Xena haha. What a fun fun fun fun time you’re going to have with five dogs in the house and the only thing I can say is I wish I were there so I can hug all of them and I would love to help the babysitter


  3. Good luck, X. I am not feeling good feelings about you going along. Parents can be so stubborn, sometimes. Either way, I am sure you will do fine and have fun anyway.

    Love and licks,

  4. Hmm, I wonder if you could pack yourself in your mom’s suitcase. I do that every time the suitcases come out here. ~ Linus Kitty
    p.s. My Margret said to thank your mom for the song she likes it and it will indeed be playing in her head for a long time. 🙂
