Pole Cat!

I haven't posted in a couple of days and now I am avoiding doing lesson plannish stuff.

We have a dog. Her name is Daisy.

She is the World's Most Spoiled Dog.

Every night we take Daisy out to the back yard for her 'little walk' before bed.

Last week, Daisy's nightly exploration of the flower bed was interrupted by a stranger--a black and white, tail waiving stranger.

I didn't know dogs could say "erp."

She and I raced to the back door.  I won, barely--I had to smack her on the head with my book so I could get in without her.  Then I had to throw my stinky book away.  And it was by my favorite author--Richard Peck!

So The World's Most Spoiled Dog is now living on the back yard.  I like it!  Except for at meal time when she stands at the window and stares at us.  But that is why we have curtains!

We are thinking of changing her name to Skunkerina.  I think it has a certain air!

(By the way, I know all the bathing remedies but we had company this weekend and didn't want eu de skunke perfuming our house and, well, now, I like her out there!  I promise she will get to come in.  Somedayyyyyyyy.)

Daisy outside, and Molly off to college? What dastardly plans do you have for Patch?

Dawn said...

Daisy might get to come back in when her 'air' disappears. Patch doesn't want in much since she has company in the back yard!

You can bathe her in tomato juice or something...my mom's dog has been sprayed two or three times this summer.

That is the worst smell ever. Hope she smells better soon! We like Richard Peck, too. We met him at the Univ of CT book fair, he was really nice and really skinny. If you ever find yourself in CT in Nov the book fair is among my favorite places to go. It's two days of seminars and book signings. Am I talking too much?

Pooooooor Daisy!

Oh, I love Richard Peck. Grandma Dowdle has got to be one of the most unforgettable characters ever written. Which one were you reading during the stink-a-thon?

I've always wanted a cocker spaniel.
