You are NOT the boss of me!

I tell YOUUUU! All I wanted to do was stretch out in the sunshine and catch some rays, you know? So here I am, all relaxed, and I get this "Mary-Margaret! Time to come in!" stuff from Mom. Yeah...sure. I ignore her. So she goes at it again, only this time she's more adamant. Again...I do what any intelligent, independent pup would do - IGNORE!! Besides, she's in her bare feet and there's frost on the lawn. I feel safe.

She's quiet for a bit, then I hear "Mary-Margare O'BRIEN!!!! You GET IN HERE!!". Like...uh....we've heard this before? Frost? Bare feet? I don't theeeeenk so. She launches a string of stuff like "You are in such trouble, Missy!", and "Bad bad BAD puppy!". Uh huh! Yup! I'm all that and more. Trying to keep a straight face here.
She slams the door and it gets quiet. Ahhh...peace at last.

It DOES get a bit chilly after a while, so I pick up and get into the house. Trying to sooth her ruffled feathers, I hop up onto her shoulder. Well, GEE WHIZ. SORREEEE that my feet are wet. Good gosh, she's in a mood, and I find myself back on the floor.

Ultimately, we go upstairs into her office where the heater is blowing warm air. She's going to work on bank statements. I am into my kennel on my cuddly soft sherpa pad. She's not speaking to me which isn't necessarily a bad thing. She'll get over it.

Cheers and best wishes for a safe New Year's weekend.


Mary-Margaret "In Charge" O'Brien

M-M, while she will get over it and we all know who is the real boss of the house, it's best to humor her. Remember where the treats and kibble come from ...

You also have a safe and happy new year.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy
