Monday Mischief - Thumper takes over

Hello Friends (this is Thumper - I kicked mom off the computer to go prepare for a hurricane so I can tell a story),

Things have changed around here agin.  Our boy went back to school and now we can nap all day.  We sure were tired after our summer trip. 
It started with me and Lightning just playing outside and being good dogs.  Maybe we were barking a lot and ticking off the neighbor lady...we're not sure. But we do that a lot tho.  It's kind of fun.  The lady yells loud.  And then we bark louder...BOL!  So in the middle of this Mom calls us and we see the opened car and we jumped in.    We were so excited to go for a CAR RIDE we were drooling on the windows.  Maybe we were going to DOG PARK!  IT's the best, you know.  When the car stopped, we got out.  It wasn't the dog park.  But there was lots of dogs there - lots of them and they were all barking and saying hello.  Great - FRIENDS!  I thought.  We can play "Who's Alpha?" and have peeing contests.  Lightning wasn't excited...he saw Mom taking the big container of our dog food to the lady at the office.  Office?!?  **GULP***  That's when we knew we were screwed.

This place was OUTSIDE.  You heard me.  O-U-T-S-I-D-E.  What are we - some kind of animals?  We don't live outside.  We play outside and go, um, you know, outside, but we live inside with people.  Anyway I'm not sure what you call the place.  It had rooms for dogs.  With some sort of roof over it.  But it was open.  Sort of.  Mostly. And it was HOT.  Maybe it was camp?  Or hell.  I here people say it's hot as hell around here...maybe that place is what they mean.  I don't know.  We heard the lady tell mom she gave us a nice spot at the end where it  was cool and Mom left us there!  While we in our spot on the end, it started raining and thundering and lightening (the sky kind - not like dog Lightning) and we were scared and wet hot and stinky and OUTSIDE.  Sort of.  It was bad.  We were there for like 432 days.  And nights too.  It was the worst.  

They finally remembered us and came to get us and the food (there was plenty - cause we didn't eat much on our vacation).  We couldn't get away from that office lady fast enough.  We ran to the car like we were chasing cats and squirrels.   At home we ran inside and crawled in our dog beds and slept like puppies.  Inside.  I-N-S-I-D-E.  with air conditioning and hugs and snuggles and pets.  It was heaven.  

Mom is still being punished for making us take that vacation.  Lightning leaves her presents upstairs and I take her spot in the big bed and try to push her out of the bed at night.  It's great being home.  Me and Lightning agree - we don't want more trips if they don't go to the dog park.  Or petsmart, you know, for toys and milk bones.

That's the end of the bad summer trip story.  Does any other dog have a story like that?

Lightning and Thumper


  1. BOL - Monty loves the outside, and would gladly go with your Mom the next time!


  2. lol! That's super funny! Glad you are both home now too. Maybe next time you can have someone come over to the house and watch you instead of having to go to "h-e double hockey sticks!"

  3. Oh no, we hate it when they go on vacation and don't take us. It just not right.

    The silvers and more

  4. Oh boy! Do I! I was left in the gulag not just once but TWICE last year. And once it was for a kazillion days though my humans insist it was only 6 weeks. 6 weeks? Who abandons their dog for 6 weeks to go have fun somewhere by themselves? Mean, that's what I say. I'm glad you guys are back home INSIDE! x
