I Don't Know

 Cujo here. My mom has a headache. She says it is pollen in the air. What is pollen? I don't know. I really miss Wall-E. I bet he knows what pollen is. She said it was in the air, so that is a clue. If I can find enough clues, I should be able to figure it out. I know that Spring is here.

I know that it is Spring because Mom mowed the yard where us dogs play. First she picked up all of our poop! Bo was amazed at that. He just turned one year old, so I suppose he doesn't remember last year when he was so little. He was so little that Mom would hold him in her shirt while she mowed! He is still a little guy, but he is too squirmy to hold still. He likes to run too much. My mom will kick his ball while she mows. He will chase it and move it so she can kick it again. He was just confused about her poop patrol. He asked Eddie what she was going to do with it. I think she throws it away, though I have never actually seen where she goes with it after she leaves our yard.

Another clue is that yellow stuff all over Eddie, Toni and Bo when they come in from playing. Is that pollen? And, if it is, where does it come from? My investigation continues. I just need to stay awake and listen when Mom is talking. I bet I will find more clues then. You may not know this, but my mom talks a lot.

She talks LOUD when she talks to Dad and sometimes she has to repeat what she says. He must have something wrong with his ears. Eddie had a yeast infection in one of his ears and Mom cleaned it with vinegar and water. Eddie's ear got better in no time! Mom still sniffs it from time to time and says it is good. Maybe she needs to sniff Dad's ears and pour some vinegar in them. I wonder if he has a yeast infection, too. What is yeast? I don't know, but it must be bad. It must smell, too, or why would Mom be sniffing Eddie's ears?

Dad says that Mom can smell EVERYTHING. Us dogs are good sniffers, too. Maybe she is part dog! Can people be part dog? I don't know that either. There are so many things I don't know. I have heard Mom say that wisdom comes with age and I am getting older every day, so I should have answers soon!

Pollen allegies suck

Dear, dear Cujo. You really are closing in on the wisdom on the universe.

Cujo, I have a sign on my wall that says:

"Wisdom Doesn't Necessarily Come With Age.
Sometimes Age Comes Along All By Itself."

But I think that only applies to humans, and not even all humans, some of us never wise up.
I think that yellow stuff on the other dogs would be pollen, it blows down off trees and off flowers, the wind carries it everywhere and it makes us humans sneeze or cough, some dogs and cats too. Some of us get bad headaches from it, like your mum and me.

Cujo, maybe you are part bee, carrying pollen from place to place!

These Cujo posts tickle the heck out of me. You are earth nother with all your natural remedies, homemade signs, and capabilities. When are you going to close up shop and take off in that motor home?
