Freedom Report


Gretchen Greer using Dadaw as a throne while he slumbers

Since this is a crazy-busy week for Mama and Dadaw, there’s not really any great dogs on thursday content to share.  So, I’ll report in on how this freedom thing is going.

To date, the only SLIGHT mis-steps, which haven’t dissuaded anyone, were a water bottle Sissy left in the middle of the bed – and no one, not even me, knows where she found it – and some peppermint taffy wrappers we -er, SISSY – lifted out of the trash can Mama says shouldn’t even be right there by the table where our treats live.  Dadaw actually seemed to think it was cute that Sis only removed those wrappers, and not any of the other trash.  Mama just reminded him that food trash should go in the kitchen, in the lidded trash can…

Dadaw kindly leaves us the run of the house.  It’s been going well enough this week that I look for Mama to follow suit.  Keep those paws crossed that Sissy doesn’t get crazy and ruin it for us!  We’re still being crated when they’re gone for more than 2-3 hours, and while I don’t really mind as long as I’m with Sissy, freedom is a good thing, right?!

Happy dogs on thursday to you!

    […] dogs on thursday, little friday and thankful thursday.  Gretchen has a cute little post up over on the fur-girls’ blog.  This has been a VERY hectic week in the woods, so I’m […]

    Oh freedom is a good thing! Stay out of the trash (or convince Sissy too) and it might continue. 😉 g

    The girls get crated when Mom leaves because they like to counter surf. Sometimes Fudge has to be crated, sort of a time out, because he gets a little too full of himself and starts pushing the rest of us around. The rest of us are good while Mom’s gone and get to have freedom. Samba just lies by the door waiting for Mom to return.

    Macy is so impressed that you girls are able to contain yourselves outside the crate. She really wants to try it and we may give her the chance on a day when Max isn’t visiting. He always talks her into doing wild things. She insists that she goes along with him only to be a good hostess!

    Ah, freedom!!! I hear Twix & Snickers have their paws crossed. They figure perhaps, this freedom thing will ring clear over to Idaho…Paws crossed for sure…

    P.S. Will you ask Mama how the Morning Glories are doing? I keep forgetting:)

    Keeping our paws crossed here! I can’t reach the trash can in the kitchen, but you can bet I’d be in it if I could! ~Micro

    Gretchen, you are too cute! Good luck maintaining your freedom, I’m sure you and sissy will be fine. And remind Dadaw, that Siss has heightened other senses because of her eyes, So her nose can sniff out all the really good stuff, and he should be more careful!

    Paws Crossed, Fingers too 🙂

    Doesn’t sound like it’s so bad there girls… our houseguest Rosie kept finding some mystery ziplock bags this week!

    Good luck with that freedom thing. We don’t get crated, but we have to stay in the kitchen when mama is gone. She’s tried at intervals to leave us loose in the house, but Abby always ruins it, chewing up stuff and tearing up mama’s bed and stuff. Mama says Abby is like a freshman away from home for the first time, with no sense of restraint or responsibility. So Abby ruins it for me and I get stuck in the kitchen, too, even though I am perfectly well behaved. Sisters!
