I See A Suitcase

I see a suitcase laying open on my Mom's bed and I know. Something is up.

Dad just cleaned out the car and washed it and it shines. Something is up.

There are tubs of delicious smelling food sitting on the kitchen floor that I know I am not supposed to touch. Something is definitely up.

If they start putting those suitcases and tubs in the clean car, then I will know we are leaving on a trip. I'll jump in the car and sit in the front waiting patiently. I don't want them to forget me!

Of course, I've got to time this just right. I have gotten in too early and no one noticed me. The doors got shut and I was trapped! With no way to get to the food! That was not a good time.

But today, today I will plan much better. When the kids start putting their things in the back seat, then I'll get in.

I'm kind of excited! We've been up to Alaska, over to South Dakota, and down to Arizona....I'm a well traveled dog. I like to go on trips. It's great to sniff new things! And old dead things, but that's quite a different tale, one best left unsaid.

Sleeping In Ain't What It Used To Be

I know my Mom has complained about her lack of sleeping in due to having dogs in the house, but I just want to remind her when it was just me, only (not lonely) Beagle, I liked to sleep in!

Granted, it was under the covers with her, but I did enjoy sleeping late.

I still try to get my extra zzz's in....every morning I jump in her bed and snuggle down next to her....and every morning there is a really annoying puppy who stands on me and sniffs at me and in general makes sleep impossible.

I do not remember Sarah Beagle being anywhere near this excited in the mornings. Must be the PomDoxie in Olive. She's revved up and ready to go at an ungodly hour. This morning she was standing on me at 6:45!

The nerve of her! It's bad enough that Mom gets up before the alarm clocks hit 6:00. But at least she's careful to slip out of bed, keeping the covers on me and Sarah.

Oh well. I still have the couch for my early morning nap, the chair for my noon nap, and if it's sunny, I'll take my afternoon snooze outside in the warm grass. I'll catch up on my zzz's, no need for worry!
