I’ve been so busy singing along that I got late with my greeting.
Merry Christmas everyone!
But I think it’s my person.
You see, when I woke up this morning the sky was full of clouds and it was rumbling thunder.
And it kept thundering until my person finally left the house.
And forced me to stay in dog jail, mind you, while that thunder was rumbling on.
But this is October and we’re not supposed to get thunder in October.
This is what an October day where I live is supposed to look like.
And most of the time October days do look like this.
And you know what?
After my person left, the sky cleared up.
When she came back home the sky was all blue.
And then she left again.
And this time when she came home the sky had changed once more.
Now it looked like this.
And the thunder had come back.
I’m sure my person had something to do with it.
But she’s paying, because there’s no way I’m taking her for a walk today.
A vehicle with a paw print and a climbing school sign.
The only obvious conclusion is that they are offering a climbing school for dogs.
Or maybe a climbing school with dogs as the instructors.
That would make sense.
Us four leggers are much better at climbing than two leggers.
And we could teach them a thing or two.
I bet they’re up there on my trails somewhere.
Probably heading for those tall rocks.
And I’m going after them.
Come on, person. Don’t slow me down.
I’ve got to go sign up to teach climbing.
This is really bad.
My people have been so full of mischief that I can’t even wait until Monday Mischief to post it.
I’ve got to get it off my chest now.
I’ve got to let you feel sorry for me know all the horrible things they’ve been up to.
For two days in a row my people locked me in dog jail and went for a walk without me.
And I didn’t get a walk at all.
Something about me maybe wrecking my person’s good camera.
I would not wreck her camera – at least as long as she only used it to take pictures of me.
But what’s worse is all the things my people did.
Yesterday they went to the creek.
And I didn’t even get to go swimming.
But this dog did.
Then today a really horrible thing happened.
My people went on my trails to take pictures of the sunset.
And while they were on their way to that sunset…
They saw my girlfriend Lucy.
She probably thinks I’m avoiding her on purpose now.
Next time I’m locking my people in dog jail.
Look at that. There’s rain on its way.
It’s going to engulf us any minute now.
And you know what the rain brings with it.
Maybe these trees will protect me from the rain.
Look, I can hardly see it now.
But I still think we need to go back.
I’m not sure if these trees are trustworthy.
And now the clouds are closing in from the other direction too.
Okay, that’s it person.
I’m not going anywhere.
What, you don’t believe me?
You don’t think I’m serious?
Well check this out.
I’m so serious…
…that I’d rather back into this cactus –
than go anywhere near that thunder.
Just try to get me to move.
The other day I finally figured out how to photobomb my person’s flower pictures.
But now I’ve got a new challenge.
I’ve been taking my person on some walks kind of late in the day.
It’s too dark for flower pictures, so I don’t even have to worry about photobombing them.
But now my person found something else to take pictures of.
Something you can only see this time of day.
Flowers are easy to photobomb.
I’m bigger than the flowers.
But what do I do about the sky?
The sky is bigger than me – and it’s higher than me.
What am I going to do?
There’s got to be a way.
And I’m going to find it.
Person, when I figure this out you’re going to be in trouble.
And so is your camera.
This is such a challenge.
What can I do about this?
Wait a minute.
I’m closer to my person’s camera than the sky is.
That’s got to count for something.
Take that you sunset!
Everybody’s looking at me now.
