7:35 AM. Waking up. Wag my tail for no reason at all. We tend to do that a lot.
7:55 AM. Human comes downstairs and says hello. Breakfast time, human?
8:05 AM. Human pours me a whole bowlful of yummy yummy kibbles. Oh boy! I am such a lucky puppy!
8:10 AM. After my traditional wolfing down breakfast inside of thirty seconds, I'm ready for my morning constitutional. And maybe I can hunt down that annoying squirrel this time. Human, will you let me outside?
8:11 AM. Human lets me out. Racing off like a maniac to sprint through the snow. Lots of acres to dash about, barking at everything.
8:55 AM. Have spotted cat on farmland. It's that cranky diva one who lives down the road. Will try my best to make a good impression.
8:56 AM. Walking up to cat, wagging my tail, doing my best not to look aggressive in any way.
8:57 AM. Cat swats me across the snout. That hurts!
Cat starts to walk off in a snit.
What is it with cats, anyway?
10:05 AM. Back home at last after long run through the snow. Have gotten some of that white stuff in my fur. I do look quite the mess.
The human brings out the Towel of Torment to dry me off.
10:10 AM. Have endured the Towel of Torment. Human, this would go much easier on both of us if you just let me dry off in front of the fireplace. And please, don't start again with that wet dog smell excuse.
12:10 PM. Waking up from nap. Human in kitchen. It's about lunchtime, right?
Maybe I can mooch something.
12:15 PM. Have managed to use the sad eyes con on the human to get her to give me a buttered bread roll.
Yum yum yum....
1:45 PM. Resting by fireplace. Could swear I just heard something. Up on feet. Over to window to look.
It's that squirrel. Out on my deck!
Must bark my head off!
1:47 PM. The human opens the door to let me out. Sprint outside like a lunatic, barking viciously.
The squirrel makes it up into a tree, and chatters incessantly at me while I bark. Stupid squirrel. One of these days...
2:35 PM. Human having tea. Manage to mooch a scone from her.
5:35 PM. Human settling in after chores. Starts talking about dinner.
Oh boy! My favourite word!
5:55 PM. Let's see, will the human be feeding me canned meat with the kibble? Or will I get a chance to mooch some of her food too? Either way's good with me.
6:05 PM. Watching human. She's working with milk, flour, and eggs in a bowl. What is she making?
Human mentions something about Pancake Tuesday.
Food has a day?
6:25 PM. The human is busy frying up pancakes. The smells are driving me bonkers. Every one is different. Apple, bacon, blueberries...
Have I had pancakes before?
Even if I haven't... oh, boy, they smell good!
Must perfect sad eyes mooching look.
6:40 PM. Human finished cooking big stack of pancakes. Sets it on table. Sit quietly beside her until she'll notice my sad eyes look.
6:41 PM. Human puts down a plate with a pancake on it. Smells good... but how do I eat one of these?
6:43 PM. Have managed to start eating pancake. It's like a taste explosion in my mouth.
Apple and bacon and maple syrup!
Why didn't anyone tell me about these things?
7:15 PM. Have managed to wolf down five whole pancakes. Blueberries taste really good cooked in like that...
I think I've died and gone to heaven. Human, can it be Pancake Tuesday every day?
9:55 PM. Dozing comfortably. Tasting the aftertaste of maple syrup and bacon on my breath.
I am a very contented puppy....
11:35 PM. Human turning in for the night. Good night, human. Thanks for the pancakes.
Would we happen to have leftover pancakes for breakfast tomorrow, by chance?
I'd really better watch it. I might end up addicted to pancakes...
