The Season

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!

Cujo, you need to find some articles about retirement and scatter them around for your mom to find. You would like retirement very much. Your mom wouldn't have to work every day but instead be available for you. Don't hold it against me, but I have cats at our house, and they love us being retired as we are always available to do what they want to do, which is usually going out and then coming in. We are "staff" to the cats. Your mom could be that for you if she retired. Think about it.

I'm sure everyone will get used to the new system and the season will fly by.

What a sweet post from the woofer.

The first month of the season is almost over, Cujo.

Cujo, I'm sorry to hear you don't enjoy the season. I know it is a lot of hard work for your mum and it was more fun when she could talk to you all through the door. But moving the desk is better for business. Anyway, just try to enjoy all the new people coming and going and hope there aren't any trouble makers. It will be over soon enough. Nice to hear from you.
