Greetings and salutations everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to tell you all about my day. I have one obligatory plant picture for you, too. You may remember me from such posts as “The Couch–An Interlude”, among at least a few others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. I had a pretty good day, even though I was left alone for a little while. I stayed in my fort. When the guy I live with came home, I was very happy. I had lunch, and we went outside to look at things. He got all excited by this plant, which I can see, because it’s blue, and about the right size for me.
Then I started to think about things. This is me looking thoughtful. I forget what it was I was thinking about. It was interesting, though. After a while, the guy I live with sat on the couch, hoping to “get a cute picture” of me. He had the camera with him, of course.
Now, what you may not know about tiny border collies like me is that we like attacking stuff. Like, pretty much everything. And we move very fast, as the pictures will show.
I stuck my tongue out at the camera. Then I got closer.I grabbed the strap. The guy I live with reminded me that the camera “cost more” than I did, which I thought was fairly below the belt, if you know what I mean. The guy I live with thought this was “only moderately funny”, and it didn’t take long for me to realize he was right. There were a lot more interesting things to attack.
Then I spent some time looking out the upstairs bedroom window, and snacking on the tecoma next to me. He put a cage around the tecoma a couple of days ago. Like that would stop me. The guy I live with yelled at me and moved the tecoma into the spare bedroom.
So, since I was upstairs, I found something else to do.You should have heard what he said. He went up the stairs, into the bathroom, and started rolling up the paper, but guess who was faster? If this hasn’t been an excellent day, then I don’t know what excellent means. And of course I do.
Until next time, then.
