While Mom’s Gone

Xena: Hi friends! Let’s catch up. I have questions…

  1. Why has Mommy been working day and night and not taking us for walks?

Lucy: Don’t you know the High Holy Days is only a little over a month away and she has to get lots of stuff ready for it? She’s not only too busy and too tired to go for walks, but she said with the way you’ve been itching, she’s limiting your time outside.

Xena: I don’t like that answer.

2. Where’s Daddy?

Lucy: You sure don’t pay attention. He left earlier in the week for Indiana to see a lot of his family who are driving and flying in. I thinks it’s called a unicorn. Or a reason. Wait, I remember! It’s a reunion.

Xena: I don’t know why he didn’t take us…

3. Where’d Mommy go, and why is our sitter coming over?

Lucy: Sheesh, I’m not getting paid enough for this.

Xena: You’re getting paid?

Lucy: No. Mom went to a place a few hours away to meet up with one of her closest friends who still lives in Pee Aye, where Mom grew up. She’s gonna be gone for a couple of days, but Dad’s coming back tonight in time to feed us.

Xena: OK, now that I’ve got that all cleared up, I’m going to show everybody some pictures and a video Mommy asked me to post while she’s gone so y’all don’t miss us too much, BOL! I’ve had to wear my “cone collar” all the time so I don’t make raw places on my neck and face with my claws. Even with all the special supplements, there’s something right now making me super itchy. Mommy took it off me for a little while so we could all play. (I couldn’t pick up the ball with it on.)

I’m claiming my kennel back from Chia.

Then I got itchy…

That Chia’s a sneaky opportunist and a ball thief.

Lucy was resting on the couch the other night when Chia play-attacked her.

Now Chia’s in my kennel where she doesn’t want to be and I can’t get in it and Lucy and me, we’re just waiting on our Daddy. Oh, Mommy said she’ll be back in a few days to “visit” y’all.

Love and wags, Xena Schnauzer Warrior Princess, Lucy and Chia

    1. Mommy just found out the berries I’ve been scarring up from the driveway are something called toxic and daddy thinks that’s why I’ve been itching. Now I’m not allowed outside the fence. *pout*

  1. Those silly girls are very cute play-fighting. Your family has been crazy busy. Hope things calm down soon, so all attention can be focused on you kids – where it belongs.

    Love and licks,

  2. Chaplin: “Hmm, ‘sneaky opportunist’ and ‘thief’ … Yep, that describes dogs.”
    Lulu: “Aren’t you the one who was stealing Dada’s chicken right out of his bowl when he went five feet to the kitchen to get some juice?”
    Chaplin: “That’s not stealing. That’s claiming an offering.”
    Lulu: “Uh-huh. Well anyway, Xena, I sure hope that itching gets cleared up soon. Incessant itchiness is the worst!”
