M.I.A. (mommy will post new photos later)

I’m sorry I have not been blogging lately. Mom is totally on the poop list for dropping the ball on this one. Mom says that between work stressing her out, homework, and studying for tests for school, cooking dinner, bla bla bla, she is just too pooped-out to do anything but cuddle with me and daddy at the end of the day.

Not much has happened lately. Mom keeps trying to teach me stupid tricks like sit and stay. I don’t know what is so important about these ones when I already know:

“Touch” – the human puts out their hand and I touch it with either of my paws kind of like a hand shake

“Bed” – I get into my bed in the living room and stand there (waiting for my next treat)

“Chair” – there is a small pillowed chair in the bedroom that I have claimed as mine and when you tell me chair, I get onto my chair

Mommy really wants me to learn how to walk outside on a leash. She doesn’t understand why I will do it inside the house and at the pet store, but not outside. Duh mom, I have delicate little paws and the cement doesn’t feel good. The only benefit to when mom makes me walk on cement is that afterwards, I get paw massages with lanolin to keep the pads of my feet super soft. Yea, I’m spoiled like that. And you all thought that you had your humans trained, wait till you meet mine! She will treat any furry or feathered friend into a prince or princess! Mom is such a sucker for animals, she can’t walk past one without saying hello which I am TOTALLY ok with because that is how I get to meet tons of really cool dogs when we go out.

As the weather has gotten colder, mommy now leaves sweaters on me the whole day while she is at work. Whereas before, she only needed to put a sweater on me at night, but it is cold all the time now…even when the sky’s are blue. It’s really confusing.

Since daddy holiday hours at his work have increased and he starts work at 5am now, when he leaves for work, mommy brings me into the big bed and I sleep under the covers with her until she absolutely has to get up from work. I have lots of fuzzy warm blankets in my bed, but cuddling with mom under her blankets is always best!

I agree that it has been way too cold lately. I have been wearing a sweater almost every day, even when I'm inside! Do you live in northern California too?
