Frankly Freddie – Dog Days of Summer

My human has been laying around the house all week.  You’ve probably noticed she’s not been commenting on her blog or responding to e-mails.  She overdid it at her last workshop and has been dog-tired ever since.  

Humans are cute, not very smart and take a lot of patience on our part.  Just when I think she’s trained she gets loose and I have no idea where she goes or what she gets into.  All I know is she comes limping home.

She looks a bit dog-eared.

Usually she can pick up the scent and find her way back but if you see her loose on the street don’t call human-control, just bring her home in time for my dinner.

  1. Dear Freddie,

    Do you think she went to IKEA and decided to sleep on one of the soft beds they have there, and they locked her inside, OR she can’t find her way out? (You know how confusing it can be to get out of IKEA!) I do hope she is home by now… let me know if you want me to go to IKEA and find her…

    A concerned human.


  2. Freddie, you are adorable, and I love the way you take such good care of your human. Make sure she takes her walk every day – you might have to go with her to keep her on the right path. And when she’s feeling a bit over tired, she likes to drop her hand into a pile of curly fur – that’s where you come in and offer your services. You’re a wonderful companion for a very sweet human – even when her ears flop over.

    • Dear Sharon Bonin-Pratt, human-being,

      You are a human of discriminating taste in that you recognize my adorability. Actually, I’ve been trying to get her a bit off the path when I walk her so it’s not boring but I know what you are alluding to.

      • Hi Freddie, I really don’t understand how she can even leave your sweet, fluffy, loving self for a moment, but that is just the nature of us humans. We’re just not lucky like you, who are happy with napping, snacking, lounging, begging for snacks, snuggling on our laps and staying home as long as you can take a walk outside once in a while to make sure every thing’s OK in the world.
        It’s really hard being human, but when we’re lucky enough to have a friend like you, we always come back home for some snuggling and doggy love. So just remember she will always come home, but when she’s worn out and tired she really needs lots of snuggles, sleep, and snacks and she’ll be better.
