So the next time they were out gardening I decided it was better for me to just supervise them. This apparently was well-received as they lifted me onto the garden table under the shade and left me there to watch them. Every now and then they would look at me and ask me if things looked good. I would show my approval with a big smile or a disinterested look. To enhance my role as a Supervisor I had to put on the “Boss-Look” which I do very well indeed. This is one of the key essence of supervising., well-compensated with lots of hugs and affection from Mama who thinks I look amazingly cute when I do so.Although supervising is fun, it can be tiring as well. Being in the sun, laced by the cool breeze and listening to the birds chirping themselves silly because it is Spring can leave one totally fatigued! The only solution to overcoming fatigue was to take a Siesta (which I did of course).The final role of a supervisor is to walk around, sniff and approve the work that has been carried out. Once that is done, I would return to my Humans and ask to be included in their afternoon tea-break which inevitably rewarded with bits of cake or cookies. Not a bad deal indeed!
My Humans didn’t seem to realize how I felt about being dragged into the cold night air to do my last bit of blessings on Mother Nature’s land for the day. Despite my attempts to be as inconspicuous as I could possibly be, that harness-strap was slapped onto my torso leaving me no choice but to go along for that painful evening walk before bedtime.
As if all that wasn’t bad enough, certain parts of my anatomy began to itch uncontrollably as the shaven parts begin to grow hair back again! This frustrates me immensely but again the Humans don’t seem to put in much effort to help relieve my discomfort. Mama did try to scratch me for a bit but that only made me itch even more — at more places beyond imagination.
To top that off, I was left all alone at home for more than 8 hours yesterday as my Humans went out to do their errands without me! Can you believe that?!!! That was it. I declared a cold war today.
To show my absolute disdain for their inconsiderate ways and lack of attention to all my sufferings for the past two days I absolutely refused to go for my morning walk, rejected breakfast, turned away from my favorite snacks, showed total disregard for any of their attempts to play cutesy with me and completely ignored their presence.
