Momma decided to go shopping today without me and I was very upset. She knows that PetSmart is my store yet she hopped in the car and drove away while I was left home with Daddy. Hmph! I was not too happy about that until she arrived back home with presents for me. Sweet!
I liked most of my presents but some of them are going back because I don't like them. I know, I know, I should just smile and tell Momma that I love all of them but I cannot lie. I can't pretend to like something that I don't. I'm just wired that way. Momma thinks it has to do with something that happened in my past but my lips are sealed.
Out to the backyard we went after Momma put this new cute jacket on me. It was a little too warm to be wearing a jacket but I loved the color so I wore it. It was really comfortable and I proved this by zooming all over the yard. My favorite pee spot today has been the bird bath. Momma is none too happy about this since she thinks it will keep the birdies away. What? I told her that the birdies will fly in from all over the world because the bath smells like me. She wasn't buying it.
We are getting ready for warm weather to arrive so we can do some gardening. I saw we because Momma has informed me that I am her gardening assistant. When I asked how much it paid she told me that my new jacket was my pre-payment. This confused me so I headed to the little garden by the birdhouse. There are so many good smells in this garden and Momma said that it might smell like Stubby because it was his garden. I knew there was a reason I liked it! Momma hung this sweet little flag in the garden on Monday because she said it the garden needed some sprucing up. Now all we need are the flowers to bloom!
While I was outside I heard some barking. I looked this way and that but couldn't see the source of the barking. Now I know that my eyes aren't great but I thought I would be able to see a barking dog. Nope. Not a chance. Momma had to practically lead me to the source of the barking and her name is Brandy. I'm not sure what breed of dog Brandy is but she's not a pug. Momma tells me that Brandy didn't like Stubby for some reason. Maybe Brandy didn't like the fact that Stubby was here first and that she wasn't top dog. Whatever the reason, I invited Brandy over to the fence so that I could say hello and you'll never guess what she did. Are you sitting down? She growled at me! No one growls at Tiffy!
Momma said that maybe Brandy didn't like my Texas accent. Um, okay. I think that Brandy was growling at Momma and not at me. I will try to talk to Brandy again tomorrow when Momma's not around, that is if Momma lets me in the backyard by myself. She said the yard is not Tiffy-proof yet and that I must be supervised when I'm out there. I think all that shopping caused her to lose her senses because there is nothing wrong with me or the backyard.
