We're back from our trip. Of course, our empty kennel-house wasn't the same without Sherman, and I didn't want to stay there alone. Hu-mom let me stay inside with her, which was good because it was 97 degrees and the big house is air-conditioned. It was soooo good to be back at my old dogpark. I played with some of my old friends & a couple new ones. I got to go see my boy, too. He drove me to a big kennel with lots of huskies! See me, I got the whole compound to myself for a while!
Then a crazed husky boy came flying into the kennel and stomped all over me, can you imagine? I was not too pleased. I wisely left the compound and watched a whole howling pack of huskies charge in. Good thing I left, cause they were zooming all over the place crashing into each other. Mom got a picture during a break in the action:
My hu-mom & boy bravely waded into the middle of all those kissing huskies. See that lt. red one? that's Sherman's mama, Cara. She covered my mom's face with kisses, and they both chatted about Sherman. I don't like being cried on, but Cara didn't seem to mind. She just kept kissing my hu-mom. She kissed my boy, too.
Syd, Sherman's dad, and his sister Tori were also there, and mom cried again when she saw Syd, cause Sherman looked a lot like his dad. I think Sherman got his sweetness from his mama, though. I was in a run by Syd and told him off. I forget about what, probably about having been stomped on.
The craziest thing happened. I don't know who decided this one, but when we got ready to go, that husky boy (whose name it turns out, is Jack) gave his mom a big hug & kiss....and climbed into the car with us! What the...?
We drove for hours and finally stopped at a dog-hotel (they let people stay too). Will you just look at me! I slept like a Queen!
Goofy boy just jumped from bed to bed for silliness & belly rubs. After a long walk in a park, (and a hamburger) we fell asleep.
We made it home, and showed Jack around. I don't know about him, he's been a real pain the butt. We've had a couple tiffs, and if it were up to me, I'd send Jack back today. But he's using his good looks and fun personality to make the humans want him to stick around, so now they expect ME to make up & be friends. Hey, he started it.
Look at this face, see what I mean? How can they say "go away" to those eyes? I can. Easily. "GO AWAY."
*sigh* I think I'm stuck with him for a while. My people say they want to give us a chance to work it out. Yeah, sure, after he tromps all over me in my own house. Well, I'm avoiding him. We'll see. You know what they say --
"It ain't over till the fluffy husky howls."
