Time for another installment from the road. The weather has been
great and I've been spendin' a lot of time outside with Mom and Dad.
We really like it here at the campground, and I get to meet lots of
great people and dogs. In fact, there's one livin' right next door to us!
This is Holly. She's a little beagle and the people she lives with
are seasonal campers. That means that they keep their camper here
all the time, rather than tow it around like Dad, Mom and I do. It's
pretty cool. They have a deck outside their camper and everything!
Holly is pretty vocal. She bawls when kids ride by on their bikes or on
those pedal car things. She bawls when people walk by with another dog.
She bawls when she sees me outside, 'cuz she wants me to play with her.
I'm a friendly guy, so I like to say "hello". We run around in their yard,
and her tie-out is so long that she practically barks in our front door!
Only problem is...shhhhh...she's a butt sniffer. That's right.
There I am "tendin' to my own knittin'" as Mom would say, and next
thing ya know, she's got her nose up in my business! Well, hello! I'm
goin' steady, ya know! (Don't worry, Quinn. She's not my type!)
I snap and growl at her just to tell her to back off. I'd never think
of bitin' her, but I draw the line at this sort of behavior. I've heard
of networkin' before, but this is not what I had in mind at all.
Once I set the ground rules, we got along just fine. Just pay attention
to my front end and there won't be any problems at all. No butt sniffin'!
I've been workin' on somethin' really special that I hoped to have done
in time for today's post, but it's gonna take just a little while longer. I
don't like to rush perfection, ya know! I'll just have to save it until next
time. Hope you're havin' a great summer. We sure are! So, 'til next week...
"Wag Like Ya Mean It!"
