When Mom’s Away

I still get to play! My Uncle M and Aunt V took me out to 1000 Acres last weekend. We hopped into the Sagemobile and off we went…M knows how much I love it out there.

Getting skritchesI was on my bestest of all behavior…I know M can throw a mean ball!

I met some new friends

They didn’t like the water quite as much as I do, but, that’s OK. I had my ball! © sagechronicles.wordpress.com

There was a point somewhere in our adventure where the urge to dig took hold. I just don’t know what comes over me sometimes, but dig I did. In a mud-puddle. And I couldn’t hear Uncle M telling me to stop. Somehow, my hearing gets turned off when I’m concentrating really, really hard on a job like that. I guess he thought I’d get out and chase that ball, but digging is one of those things that you just gotta do sometimes. Do you ever feel that way? Well, I guess I was in trouble because I didn’t listen. Oops…

I try really, really hard to be good when Mom is gone, but sometimes when she gets back I have to let her know what I think about it. So, when she took me to agility yesterday, I decided not to listen. Fixed her!!

I can’t quite figure out why, but I just don’t get away with it with anyone. Mom calls it ‘acting out’. Do you ever do that when your Mom or Dad is gone?

  1. Hi Sage,

    Thanks for joining our FUF blog hop! I loved your post today and see absolutely nothing wrong with you digging in puddle. 😉

    Glad your mom is home though, I bet it’s hard to be apart.

    Have a great Easter!

  4. Oh man, 1000 acres looks like a blast! Glad you got the chance to romp and get dirty. Eko used to show his displeasure by eating shoes when I was out, but luckily he outgrew that phase (finally). On occasion he will still move my shoes/garbage around but luckily he doesn’t eat anything.

  5. Sounds to us like you were just being yourself…a dog. We kitties don’t listen either. The humans just got to get over themselves. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
