Who you talkin' to Willis?
A lot of peoples think mom is crazy....for obvious reasons aside, because people says mom "spoils us rotten." Now, I don't know what this means...I mean, just because we have a lot of toys and collars and packs (which all serve a purpose) and cause mom and dad do stuff with us and take us on vacayshion with them we are apparently "spoiled". Pfft...if I was truly spoiled my custom B'day present would have been here YESTERDAY on my b'day served with a nice homemade doggy cupcake...but that's beside the point.
Now mom thinks other peoples are crazy cause they don't love their critters as much as her and dad do (and all your moms and dads...high five!). But Tuesday, mom got looked at like she was REALLY bonkers.
Mom took me out for an evening walk. It was nice, relatively cool for Alabama. And when we walk, mom talks to me.
Mom: Oh Anna, I'm so ready for next week! It's vacation!
Me: (run back to mom) I know! We need a rest! I'm stressed!
Mom: Just think, you get to run around and chase turkeys...
Me: Dinner will be served! Nom!!
Mom: And you'll be wearing your new "no huntin' me vest" so no one thinks your a bear or a wolf!
Me: Whew! And a wolf? Seriously? People are so....hey mom, that woman's staring at you...
Mom turns and sees some of our elderly (who am I kidding, they're all elderly in our hood) neighbors staring, mouth open, at us.
Scared Neighbor: Are you talking to....your dog........(takes a step back)
Scared Neighbor: Umm...hmm.....nice backpack. (scampers inside)
I guess a lot of peoples don't think talking to us critters is normal. I say POO on you! POOOOO! Mom and dad talk to all of us all the time. Riddle me this: how can you not talk to a critter that lives in your house people?!?!
So as we walked off, Mom laughed.
Mom: What's her deal, Anna?
Me: I haz no idea...now about those turkeys.....
