A week ago, you couldn't get Tiny Dog and Chi Chi to close their eyes if the other was in the room and now they are sleeping with Stinky Dog on her big bed. Tiny and Chi Chi aren't friends but they are sometimes tolerating each other. Except for last night. Last night they hated each other and I got up at least nine times to see why dogs were barking or growling or crying at the edge of my bed. They're lucky that I'm not using them as gator bait today. I'm too tired from my lack of sleep to go gator hunting.
Tiny Dog can be such a bitch. Some mornings, after Sweety leaves for work, I'll put her in the bed with me. I didn't do it the other morning because I didn't feel like it. She's so damn hot that I sweat where ever she touches me and I wasn't in the mood for that. So she gets in bed with Stinky Dog and I leave about an hour later to take BigBrother(12) to school. Usually, when I get home all of the dogs are excited to see me and come running out of the bedroom. That day, Tiny Dog did not. Stinky and Chi Chi were crazy all over the place and I look in the bedroom and see that Tiny is still in the dog bed with her back to me. I yell her name and clap my hands and tell here that I have a treat for her but she doesn't move. When I walk over to her and pat her head, she opens one eye and I swear that she sneered at me. She wouldn't get out of bed for her treat so I carried her limp, still angry body to the kitchen and made her eat it. What an attitude.
Doesn't it look like Chi Chi is smiling here? I wonder what she dreams.
I was pestering Sweety for a puppy before Chi Chi came to stay with us and I was kind of annoyed that he'd let Chi Chi come here but not allow a puppy. But I've discovered that Chi Chi is so old that having her around is like having a puppy. She's just as small as Tiny was when we got her, she can only eat soft food, her balance is off, she's confused and sleeps a lot. You know how sometimes old people that are hard of hearing or maybe going senile have a certain look in their eyes? Kind of like confusion but with a little smile? Chi Chi always looks like that. She reminds me of my Grandma and sometimes I get sad when I see her little bug-eyes looking up at me.
