Hello. This is Madison T. Dog writing and let me first state that there are no pictures with this blog post. None. And there never will be. And I am as embarrassed as a grown dog could possibly be.
Mom has already shared our wonderful trip to Vermont together. What she didn’t tell you is that she has taken this dog training stuff to new heights. She is quite pleased with herself.
When we travel I am exceedingly well-behaved and obedient, because I get to go special places. I do what I am told.
Mom monitors everything too, especially things I eat and drink as she has discovered a direct correlation between what goes in (water and kibble) and, er…. “what comes out.” I am not allowed to water plants or leave presents unless I am commanded to do so. This is OK with me because it’s like the woman totally reads my mind anyway.
So on the morning of the last day of the trip, after I enjoyed a big cup of kibble, she took out the little blue bag. This is the international sign that there will soon be something to “scoop.” Off we went to a lovely grassy area in front of the hotel. Instead of keeping a discreet distance and allowing me a little privacy as she usually does, she was definitely tailgating, if you catch my drift. I was a little concerned, but Nature was calling, and just as she called, Mom held the opened blue bag beneath my butt!
I was stunned.
Before I knew what happened, it was IN THE BAG! Literally. Mom danced around and proclaimed a “hole in one!” I just don’t know what to think. This takes micromanaging to a whole new level.
I hope she doesn’t tell the other dogs; I’ll be the laughing-stock of the whole neighborhood.
Happily, like in golf, “holes in one” are suspect unless witnessed by others. I think that’s the only thing that’s going to save my reputation. (Probably shouldn’t have blogged about it…)
