My mom was a naughty mommy with her mom’s trickery last week. She said, “come on, Emma, let’s go run some errands”. I was all over that! A car ride, hanging out with mom, who knows where we might get to go!
It was clear to me almost immediately, yet to late, that this was not going to be what she said. I was going alone with her which is normally not a good thing unless it is a photo shoot but then mom is in a great mood and tells me it is a photo shoot. Katie was staying home and just I was going with mom, all alone, which usually means groomer, vet or getting my ears plucked. Oh dear!
Mom had tricked me into getting into the car but then she tricked me again. We were just riding around and she was running errands like the bank drive through, dropping off something at the office and then just as I was feeling pretty good about this ride thing we parked and we were at the place to get my ears plucked. You would be amazed at how small I can become and how tightly I can squeeze myself into the corner in the back of the car. I will not get up, I will not get out and I most certainly will not walk myself into the torture chamber. Mom managed to get me out of my seat belt and then she carried me in as I flat out refuse to walk, I am not stupid. It is not easy for me, so why make it easy for mom? People laugh because she is carrying me but I don’t see any humor as I know what is going to happen. I did pretty well this time, did not cry much and it is all over in a few minutes but as my Gramma tells me, I am a serious Drama Queen and I play it up good!
As always, I got to go shopping at PetCo after my ears were done. We had to buy more food for Katie but Pro Plan redesigned their packages and mom couldn’t figure out which bag we needed so I stood over by the correct bag and showed her what Katie eats.
I sniffed out some great chew items and was thinking about just taking one for all my troubles but then I decided I didn’t want to go to jail for pawlifting, so I just sniffed some more and then I helped mom pick out some snacks for us at home.
They had a nice display of Twins items but mom said I have enough baseball gear and since the Twins usually stink we don’t want to waste our money on that stuff right now. I agreed, more snacks would be a much better idea. I will still be a Twins fans but they need to win a bit more!
You may notice my hair looks kind of funny – well, when I get my ears done they feel weird inside for a few hours and I shake my head a lot, so my hair tends to stand on end.
Mom won the mischief award this week even though I call it unfair. At least I (my ears) are safe for another 8 weeks or so!
