I hates this time of year! Not only does it get really cold and the days get short so we have less time for playings and walkings, but the bangings start up. I HATES bangings!!! I think they used to bangs less when I was younger, or at least I didn’t seem to minds it so much. But I gets really, really scareds when there’s bangings now and has to go and hides.
The humans have to be carefuls with me when walkings, as I could run away and lose them if we get a sudden bangings and I gets scared. And even when I go out to pee, they make extra sure the gates are locked so I can’t get out. ‘Cause they know I’m valuables and that I could gets scared and lost and hurt and cold and hungry and lonelies. I don’t think the humans could copes with knowing that, so it’s a good thing that they takes extra good care of me.
Luckilies the humans have figured out how to distracts me from getting too scareds, because they know I forgets all about scary bangings when the do really, really fun stuff with me. So they keeps the lazy pointer just for this. I haven’t mentioned’s the lazy pointer to you peoples yet, because I finds it really, really hard to stay calm enough to types when I think about lazy pointers. Lazy pointers are the most fun, bestest things EVERS! Even better than bubbles!
The humans will hardly ever let me haves the lazy pointer, because they say I’m a little bit obsessive and I barks too much when I sees it. The big, big meanies! I guess they may have a bitty of a point though, because something you only ever get to have for extra special times is the BEST fun evers! It would be sad to get boreds of lazies…
The humans can’t waves the lazies all day, so when there’s likelies to be lots of bangings, they makes sure to keep the radio or television on to hides the noise a bit. And makes sure I have a nice safe place to go and hides if I gets scared. I likes under the human’s desk, ’cause the computer noises drowns out the bangings a bit and it feels safe. The humans keeps an eye on me under there too though and distracts me if I looks too unhappies.
They even sleeps all night with the radio on when there’s lots of bangings at night, so I can get to sleep. If I gets really scareds, they puts the Thundershirt on for me too, but I don’t really likes wearing clothes, so I prefers not to put it on. I think distractings me with the lazy pointer is a much, much, much better idea!
Woulds you believe, some humans don’t cares if their dog is outside and scared or anything like that and just leaves them there?! I’m luckies that I got nice humans who takes good care of me. Please bring your doggies in so they won’t be scared humans and if you’re going to do bangings, please don’t do it near us doggies. I’d prefer if you didn’t do it at all actuallies!
