I've taken to leaning into Mama a lot just to make sure I'm still part of her pack. She reassures me that I am but still, between her work, and the Exchange, and her dumb garden, and everything else that she does, she's hardly been spending any time with me.
Well, that's not entirely true - we're spending different time together. When she's on the computer, I'm snoozing on the floor by her feet. But I'd much rather she be watching TV or reading so I can snooze on pillows with my head on her lap. And when she's working in the garden, I have to be hooked to my tie-out instead of running in the park, something I haven't been doing a lot of lately.
If you're wondering what happened to my stick pile, it's been moved to a new location. It's now near the fence and away from the garden because it was kind of ruining the grass. But it's growing and I'll keep you posted on it its progress.
Mama and Papa went to a family reunion in the country last weekend and left me behind. Mama tried to have the family dogs included but no one seemed to want us. Turns out that it was miserably hot and the mosquitos and black flies were biting like crazy. Mama and Papa got chewed up by the bugs in the worst way and Mama has a bad sunburn too. Silly humans. They could have stayed in the city and gone over to my pal Oakley's house and played with him all weekend like I did. Told you humans don't always make sense.
