Yesterday Mom decided that I was done
sitting around the house being grumpy.
She made me go with her to check the mail and visit
the Nice Ladies in the office.
I wasn't happy that I didn't have a say in the
matter and hid under the chair I have claimed as mine.
After what seemed like forever, we went home.
I was happy enough to spend some time outside
under Mom's supervision.
That is, until this happened:
"Wait, did you just take an embarrassing photo of me?"
Despite the embarrassing photo,
I still managed to enjoy the late afternoon sun.
Once evening came and Daddy returned home,
I got a little rambunctious.
When nighttime was in full swing,
Mom took me for a nighttime recon!
At one point I became obsessed with the scent
on the bush in which I always see those birds.
After a long time, Mom managed to pull me away.
I gathered information from the scents on a couple more bushes.
Then I returned to the bird bush.
I got a bit distracted by the wind,
but ultimately returned to taking in the scents on the bush.
That is, until Mom became annoyed again.
So I ventured over by the office, which
was closed, and gathered scent information there too.
After that momentary distraction,
I convinced Mom to return to the bird bush.
That was it though, she had had enough.
We made another lap around the building
before returning home.
I made sure she followed me to my food bowl.
I prefer to have someone watch over me while I eat.
After a quick bite, I let Mom know I wasn't
ready to settle down for the night.
She picked up on my mood and brought out
my stick-and-string toy.
Then, and only then, I was ready to settle down.
