|Moments later, Rex had struck a victory for dogs everywhere against the cruel tyrant, Darth Harper...|
8:15 AM. Have slept in. Human appears to be sleeping in too. She had a rough night. Tossing and turning. Shouted out something about empty chairs and grouchy old men. Whatever that means. Humans can be quite confusing at times.
8:20 AM. Have come downstairs. Will let human sleep awhile. It's quiet. Too quiet. That's usually when something happens.
8:30 AM. Sitting in front of porch doors looking outside. Movement catches my eye. A squirrel comes up on the porch, carrying an acorn. Stupid squirrel. I hate those little bastards.
8:35 AM. Pacing back and forth at sliding doors. Watching that little menace. Those beady little eyes. The little bastard is chattering away, staring right at me. He's taunting me. When I get my paws on you....
8:40 AM. Start barking my head off. Lousy little furry bastard, laughing at me out there. Well you won't be laughing for long! I'll get you!!!
8:42 AM. Human comes downstairs grumbling. Opens door for me. Squirrel goes running. I start chasing.
8:43 AM. Have chased the annoying little bastard across the yard to a tree. The annoying little bastard is now chattering away on a tree branch above. I really, really hate squirrels.
9:10 AM. Have been circling tree for last few minutes, glaring up at the squirrel, barking at him. Too bad I can't climb trees. Otherwise you and I would be having words right now.
9:55 AM. Returning home after run around the back forty acres. Human is downstairs finishing breakfast. Greets me by asking why I had to bark so much. Dear human, I love you a whole lot, but really, the squirrel is my mortal enemy and must be hunted down and destroyed.
10:05 AM. Breakfast time. Kibbles! My very favourite!
3:55 PM. Back outside for awhile after my nap. Wandering about the farm for awhile on my own.
4:25 PM. Spot cat at distance. Have seen that one before. Lives nearby. Doesn't much like me. I wonder why. Maybe I'll go ask.
4:26 PM. Walk up to cat. She starts hissing and baring her claws. Why do cats do that when I just want to say hello?
4:27 PM. Cat issues harsh warning to me to back off. But seriously, all I want to do is ask why cats don't like dogs....
4:28 PM. Cat has delivered smack across my snout. Ouch!
4:30 PM. Cat walks away in a huff, with that typical attitude that makes me wonder what I did so wrong. Cats! Who can figure them out?
5:10 PM. Heading back for home. Still confused by the psychological makeup of the feline species. Can't we be friends? Is that asking the impossible?
7:10 PM. Human having dinner. I've already had my kibbles, which, by the way, I love. Have I mentioned that? Give my patented sad eyes look. Human gives me a dinner roll. Oh, boy! My favourite!
11:15 PM. Human turning in for the night. Will head up to join her after my nocturnal patrol of the house. Thinking about tomorrow. And getting my paws on that bloody squirrel.
