Never mind Dear Blog, it should read Dear WTF …… Dawg!!?
I have a feeling that my little madam here will be issuing soon a 4 paws diary entry if this evening’s performance is anything to go by!
Yesterday Suze left the UK to go and visit her daughter and the grandkids down under in good ol’ Oz! Now despite Suze and l explaining to our pooch here that Mummy would be gone for a little under three weeks, but she WOULD be back! Madam la Scrappy, is not a happy girl …..
Yesterday was really easy, l figured that as she has gotten older, she is accepting of the fact that Mummy on the odd occasion goes away …. l was wrong, so terribly, terribly and even more terribly wrong!
So we had an easy night, but when we went out for our walk this morning, Scrappy saw Mummy’s car and oh my … she must have thought that Mummy was home, so she tore off at 90 miles an hour, cut short her already shortened walk and then raced back home! When we got back, the house and garden was searched thoroughly for the missing Mummy to no avail and then slumpdawg arrived on the scene and what are those eyes looking at me for with the devil itself present?
So Scrappy calmed down again, and as we went out for our evening walk and she saw the car AGAIN, this time she refused to move from the car and ten minutes of coaxing her is what it took. We walked a little bit faster than normal, but not the 90 mph of this morning and when we got back, she once again searched the house high and low for the missing and quite possibly kidnapped mummy!
But she calmed down again until around 9pm last night when suddenly a huge panting wildly episode was created for an hour! She didn’t pace, she ran top speed from the front door to the back of the house and into the garden and then continued this for a whole sixty minutes – each time she passed me here she gave me the glare that says ‘Fess up pal, what have you done with my mummy??’
Currently she is asleep, and she is calm again, but l feel that this may well be a very long 16 days.
The sadness is that as she is getting older, we do believe that there is perhaps a little bit of doggy dementia present with Scrappy, and despite how frustrating her actions become, it does pull at my heart that my little girl gets herself so badly wound up. But at least she is still eating. Some of you may recall back in November she stopped eating for the first few days that Suze was away.
