I slept terribly last night. It started out pretty good. My mom and dad are letting me sleep in their room now, which is where my kitties sleep too, so this is really exciting. I have to sleep in this house that is like a tent though, so I don’t get wild about my kitties and keep everyone up all night.
Anyway, everything was peaceful and nice until some naughty intruder knocked on the door at 1:30 in the morning! I usually do not bark when someone knocks on the door, but this was an unusual circumstance so I barked a few scary ones just to make sure the intruder knew just who they were dealing with. My mom woke up right away, but dad took a little while. I didn’t keep barking, but I was pretty anxious about whoever was out there.
We never found out! Dad looked out the window to see who it might be before going all the way downstairs and he didn’t see anyone there. He says he thinks it was some bad kids causing mischief. I usually really like kids, but these ones sound like trouble! It was hard to get back to sleep after the mystery visitor.
But things got a lot better this morning when my mom took me to the dog run. That place is fun! We played so much fetch and my mom found out that sometimes I like tennis balls even more than treats.
We also played with the mat that my dad made for me. Now my mom tells me to “park it” and I lie down on my cozy mat and get some delicious treats. She does some weird things when I am on my mat, like run around in circles and walk far away and jump up and down. I just hang out and wait for more treats.
Oh, and I got to say hello to this little girl who was really cute. She ran right up to me and I think her dad was kind of nervous about that, but I sat nicely and gave her hand some licks and he seemed to relax a lot. I really like when kids pet me.
Once this nice little boy pet me and he was holding the most delicious treat I’ve ever seen – my mom called it a doughnut – and I didn’t even try to smell it. Mom was smiling a lot and she gave me almost a million treats after the boy was done petting me.
**Yawn** I can hardly keep my eyes open after all that excitement last night – it’s nap time!
