Something to Say

Listen up!  I have a few things to say.

I am stuck in at home all day long. 

I am not content! 

Sure we go to the field and run.   So what if it is raining all the time...I have fur, you have rain gear.  PUT IT ON! 

Are you even listening to me?  I don't think you are...I feel like my words go in one ear and out the other. 

Sure you have been busy with the holidays, the baby, icky weather etc, I get that.  But while you have been out there having fun I have been stuck at home with the PUPPY! 

Sure, you may prepare the bacon...but I bear the brunt of her care. 

Day after day I take care of this little whippersnapper.  I watch her.  I care for her. 

I lick her.  I play with her. 

I take my job seriously.  I am a good nanny dog.  She will grow up strong and have a firm grasp on dog communication. 

But this is all I do day in and day out!  I need more! 

A girl has her limits. 

You need to listen to me!  It is so typical...I think you hear me, but actual listening is a skill you have not mastered yet.  No wonder we have issues on the trial field - you don't pay attention to me!  It all goes over your head - like a 747.  I listen to you!  But you don't listen to ME! 

LISTEN TO THIS!  My brain is turning to mush!  Mush I tell you!  MUSH! 

Do you understand me?  I need sheep.  I need to work my brain.  I have sheep skills which are getting rusty. 

Even Bea agrees with me. 

I need sheep.  Soon,  or I will eat your knee caps while you sleep. 

We are going tomorrow, right?
