Hi everypawdy. It’s me again – here to tell you that today is my 10 month ampuversary!! Whoo-hoo – I have hit the double digits.
But, on this super momentous occasion… do you know what?? My mom is NOT taking me to the beach. Yesterday we went like we always do on Sundays with both my mom and my dad. They were wearing their crazy colored shoes, which means we get to run a little bit. I love that! Anyway, it was hot yesterday – hotter than it’s been probably the whole summer, so I got a little bit tired and I did a little face plant when we were running downhill about 1/2 way through our walk/run. I got up and face-planted again. I heard my mom go “Oh!” but it was no big, I was still raring to go. They wouldn’t let me run anymore after that. 🙁
Then last night at the house it was really hot, so I took a night off from being my usual terrorist self. Usually at night I chew on mom’s toes while she tries to lay on the couch, so that she will get up and play – but I didn’t feel like it last night. I was just a little hot and tired, but they were making a big deal out of it, so now they say I am grounded and NO beach and NO walk today!! WtH??? My mom keeps poking at my good front leg and she is wondering if it looks ok. It looks fine! She is just uber paranoid. (Picture me rolling my eyes…)
To prove that I feel absolutely fine, I chased a stupid fly (almost as annoying as a Monkeybutt…) around the house this morning, but mom still doesn’t believe I am OK to go to the beach. She said that MAYBE if I am quiet and rest today she will take me this afternoon, but I have to stay in one spot and just get my feet wet and play a little bit. I can’t run around the whole island like I normally do. (Another eye roll from me…) I guess that is better than nothing, but even that is not for sure. She says we have to see… I think that sucks.
The only good thing about my celebration today is that I am for sure going to get a Frosty Paw later. The peanut butter flavor – yum! Keep your fingers crossed for me that I’ll get to go back to the beach tomorrow and be back to my normal routine! It is supposed to be a lot cooler tomorrow, so hopefully my mom will stop being the Activity Police!
Also to prove that I am fine and it was no big deal, here is a picture of me playing at the beach just the day before the face-plant. I look pretty pawesome, huh – mixing it up with the other dogs!
