Dad, as usual was up today very early. I, being Rutherford had to greet him with hugs and kisses. 🙂 As he looked at me with one eye open he was grinning. So, he let us out and coming back in I gave him lots of kisses and he told me what a good boy I am as he hugged me back.
So, off to start the day. First I chewed on the collie cushions on the flor Dad made me stop. So, I decided to chew on the cord to the lights and again Dad made me stop.
So, I started a free for all wrestling match with Walter complete with growls, barks and all our other screamingly loud sound effects and dad made me stop again!!!! Gee Dad, it is 5:35 in the morning and my day is only 10 minutes old, let me have some fun will ya?
So, then I teased Skylight who growled and barked and again, dad made me stop. By this time I can see he is looking at me a bit unhappily so I ran off and chased one of the cats. Oh boy, that didn’t go well either. So, I ran the other way and teased Mick so he chased me around the house. Now, at 5;40 me running full speed, with Mick at over 125 pounds chasing me and crashing through the house with Walter barking his appreciation and then joining in on the chase which set off lil Hallie into a big rounds of thunderous barks as she tackled me to make me stop did not set well with Dad either.
Sigh, so I sat down for a whole minute. It seemed like eternity!!!! So, I figure now that it is 5:45 in the morning the day is a wasting!!! Surely it is time to have fun now! So, I get up and pull Ginger’s tail and run as she gets up screaming and then chases me as Walter once again barks and joins in and around the house we go! Lil Hallie gets mad, barks and tackles me and then Smoke appears towering over me looking down with fire in his eyes. Behind him is Lad. Oh oh, they are not happy. After all them two old geezers like to sleep in….. ahem.
So, then Dad appears behind them tapping his foot…… not a good sign. He points to a place on the floor in front of the TV. Okay, I’m going, I’m going! I sit there and he puts in a movies and puts this song on……. Okay, interesting… Bing Crosby… ah yes he is going to croon to me. Fat chance Old Guy, I’m not going to be sung to sleep. His foot taps so I turn and watch this film…..
Hmmm.. interesting…… would I like to swing on a star? Heck ya, better than this….. moonbeams in a Jar? hmmmm… what could I do with that? Would I like to be a mule? No I am a collie!!!! Or be a pig? No, like Bing sings they are messy! Rude? Wait are you telling me something here old guy?
hmmmmmm…… A fish, slippery.. are you implying something there? Wait is this song a lesson? I have to admit the tune is catchy. Okay, monkeys? Zoo? Hmmm… I think you are telling me something here….. Can be better than I am? Yes, this is one of those lessons. I get it old guy… I an do better.
So, I go over and give him a hug and kiss his face and the old guy smiles and hugs me.
Okay, now that I smoothed that over let me see. Hah, you do not need that head Ginger, you don’t use it anyways!!! So, I put her face in my mouth and squeeze a bit…. Weee…. she is mad and chasing me now and as I pass Walter I grab his tail and yank for he doesn’t need that tail it is redundant! As I pass Mick I step on his head which is okay since he, like Ginger doesn’t use it either!!! I run through the cats and they scamper in all directions screaming and climbing curtains and chairs and walls just like Monkeys in a zoo!!!! Whee… I bark joyously for I am swinging on a star now and doing better at this than ever! Thanks Old Guy for the tips in that song. Wheeeeeeee…………..
