Me n my BFF Snoopy wanna wish everybody a very happy & safe 4th of July; 239 HY since the Declaration of Independence was signed by our Founding Fathers & which established the good Ol’ US of A as a country here on AnimalPlanet.com. Snoopy n me think this is a real great country where everyone is equal & some is equaller. Which is like sayin’ We’ve got more work to do. Polish our image & live up to our standards.
But still a great country nonetheless. & when they approve the K9 Franchise, the US will be another step closer to perfection.
All the above being said, I gotta report some suspected abuse to myself. 1 HD, I’m going along, doing my thing. Checking out things in My Neighborhood. Offering Guidance & Assistance where I deem needed. & the next, I’m hauled off to MyVet where I didn’t do nuthin wrong & they’re sticking needles & knives in me. & I go to sleep for a really long time. & I wake up with my hind end stitched & shaved, my teeth a little sensitive & my head in the Collar of Shame. Whuddid I do? I tell you. It’s just not right.
I was so embarrassed when Mymi brought me home, I didn’t even wanna go out & check things out. Wrangle squirrels. Chat with Chipmunks. Chit-chat & clatter with the Magpies. They woulda laughed right in my face. Which I couldn’t even look away bc of this dumb collar thing. So mortifying.
So we remained here at our Domain the next HD. It was hard to find a place for myself with this dumb collar on & Mymi doing the laundry which I don’t like to stay in my Domain when that machinery is running. I resorted to my new old standby since all the workers were here renovating & updating our Domain, inside & outside. I stayed in the room with GrandSire’s furniture in it. I can still smell his scent & it gives me peace of mind.
By the end of that HD, I managed to look so miserable that Mymi agreed to take that dumb collar off. She said she couldn’t see how it helps when I can’t even turn around in my crate, the last defense. She said it was just temporary; I’d hafta put it back on for bedtime. But when that time came, she couldn’t figure out how to put it back on with only 2 hands. So . . . problem solved.
I’ve been on my best behavior since then tho. I don’t wanna risk having to put that stupid collar on again by chewing around where I shouldn’t. Cause bleeding or something. Not gonna happen. So I’m layin’ low til this all washes out & I can resume my duties, Walkies off leash as is only right in order for me to resume my duties & responsibilities.
Today being the 4th of July, Mymi is going to take special measures & precautions so I don’t get all nervous during the fireworks celebration later on this evening. I get to remain inside our domain with music on while humans celebrate the 4th. Fireworks always make me uneasy bc I don’t know when the next 1 is coming; likewise where it’s coming from.
So me n Snoopy wanna wish everyone a happy & safe 4th of July. But remember your dog & leave music or TV or other noise on loud enough so we don’t hear fireworks but soft enough so our sensitive ears don’t get injured.
