I celebrated another day of Christmas. This time we went to Lexington, Kentucky to my sister Angie’s house. It took a long, long time but not as long as going to Melanie’s. When we got to Lexington our first stop was the Bluegrass Barkery. It’s my most favorite place in Lexington, except for Angie’s house. Mom bought treats for Mister and me, and lots of treats to bring home. The Bluegrass Barkery has the best treats in the whole wide world. I helped the corgi greet customers when they came into the store.
It’s a good thing we had lots of treats because Mister and I had to go to
jail in our crates while the humans went to church. We got treats for going to jail in our crates. Mom calls those treats bribes positive reinforcement.
Mister got a new Christmas sweater. He got lots of attention when Angie put it on him. I wanted attention, too. So I
demanded asked for a belly rub. I didn’t get one! And it was Christmas day!
But doesn’t Mister look handsome in his new sweater?
Later, Mister and I got our belly rubs. Angie is an excellent multi-tasker.
Mom and Dad were proud of my behavior. Sometimes they reminded me to be gentle with Mister. And there were the times I tried to eat his food. He has yummy food. And he didn’t get mad when I ate it. Everyone else thought it was a bad idea.
One thing still confuses me. It was rainy but I went outside to take care of business anyway. When I came back inside, Mom said I smelled like a wet puppy dog. Shouldn’t a wet puppy dog smell like a wet puppy dog? Sometimes my parents have weird ideas!
