I bet you are wondering who WAS a grump. Well, I was. I think my Mom was too, but let me tell you my side of the story.
Yesterday morning, I went outside to check the back yard perimeter. My usual thing to do–I have to make sure there have been no invaders overnight. It was still dark, but that’s OK–I have a good nose. Anyhow, I heard someone walking a dog down the street beside our house. And I heard these new dogs come out across the street. They’re new and I haven’t met them. So, I decided now was as good a time as any. Since Mom won’t leave the gate open for me, I decided to dig a hole under the fence. Yep. I did it. Never did that before, but it sure was easy.
Before I went over to meet all these new dogs, I smelled something. (I told you I had a good nose.) It was dead and stinky and heaven to roll in. And I did. I rolled and rolled and rolled. Then I met the new dogs.
Mom spoiled it all by coming out and those hu-mans told her I was outside our fence. I was having way to much fun to go home right away, so I showed her! I ran over to my friend Janice’s house. I don’t think I’m suppose to do that, but it’s such a fun game. Mom took me home and made me come in the house. Party pooper….
I thought my eau de stink was most becoming, but you’ll never believe what my Mom did!! She took me to Fido’s (our indoor dog park) and had some stranger give me a bath!! Well, I like baths ok, but only when they are at home. (Remember, I just had one last Tuesday.) They’ve never done this to me before. Do you think it was mean of them? I do.
After having to get this bath and losing all my lovely smells, this hu-bather turned a hose on me! I thought I was going to get all sucked up and blown away. Mom said it was just the blow dryer, but it was scary and I was shaking. And you know what? I worked hard to smell that good. What’s the matter with them?
When they were through torturing me, I went into the dog park section and every single dog came over to sniff me. Well, I really was grumpy now. I couldn’t even show off my great eau de stink. I was so grumpy I even growled at those dogs, so Mom and Dad took me home. Mom said I can’t growl at other dogs. Boy, SHE was grumpy now–I think she was growling at me!!
I was exhausted after all that and decided a good long nap would do the trick. And, guess what? It did!!!
