Cujo here. This time of year is the time that my mom refers to as "the season". I know this because Oscar told me all about it when I came to live here. Us dogs absolutely hate "the season". Toni Louise and I have been through this many times and we are used to it. We just curl up and sleep all day and then we want to be up when the store closes. My mom scolded me for waking her so early this past weekend. I felt bad about it, but I really needed to go outside. This is what happens when you hold your pee all day!
Eddie (my mom calls him Charming Eddie, and he isn't all that charming, if you must know) is really having a hard time with "the season". Last season my mom's desk was right through the door to our house and she would stand at the door to talk to us dogs. Sometimes she would pick one of us to stay in the store with her. Usually Eddie. Because he would cry for her. A very unbecoming habit in my humble opinion.
Now that she moved her desk up to the windows (this was after she was told she couldn't, by the way) so that she can see the campers coming in, she doesn't let any of us stay out there with her. She says it is for our own good. She is probably right about that. I admit that I might be tempted to bite anyone messing with my mom. Maybe Eddie would like to be out there, though. Now that I am thinking about it, that would leave Toni Louise and me in peace.
Dad likes to sleep in his chair every afternoon and Eddie will sit in his lap and sleep. But when we are in here alone, he gets whiny and annoying. As long as it is nice and sunny outside people will be taking up my mom's time. I don't like this. I like it when she is holding me and giving me kisses on my head (she calls it my sweet head). I am always happy when the season goes away!
