Calling All Royal Subjects to Protect My Castle

Hey Pups,

On Saturday morning suitcases were loaded into the car and the family left. I thought we were going to be home alone for a while... but Dad came back without Mom and the Little Biped. Apparently, it was a vacation for the women only. Dad returned home and let us out. Shortly after, he put the girls back in their crates, left Canyon and I in the house and got his tools. I watched from the window to see what he was doing in the backyard. He spent several hours out there, drank a lot of beers, and worked on the Little Biped's new swing set which is going to be a birthday surprise for her when she returns home on Saturday (her birthday isn't for several more weeks, but this will be an early present).

Sunday morning, a man-who-visits-us-sometimes showed up in the driveway. Dad left the teapot on the stove, and put us in the dog yard (fortunately Dad heard the smoke detector and came in the house in time to save us from disaster - the only loss was the teapot). The man-who-visits-us-sometimes and Dad spent all morning working on the swing set. This time there were no beers because the man-who-visits-us-sometimes said he had to go to work later in the day. We overheard the man-who-visits-us-sometimes suggesting that the dogs be the first to try out the sliding board. Dad thought it would be funnier to find a cat to do the honors. The man-who-visits-us-sometimes left around lunch and we got to come in. After lunch, Dad got his tools and beer again and we spent the rest of the day in the house.

Several problems in this situation... 1) We are left in Dad's care - can't complain about this too much because we are still getting regular trips out, food and water - the only problem is weekends are supposed to be time to play with doggies and we didn't get to play with Dad at all because he spent all weekend outside with beer and power tools. 2) Dad had beer and power tools - enough said. 3) Dad tried to burn down the house by leaving the teapot on while he went out.

Royal Subjects, King Skyboy hereby demands that you come and help me protect the house. Dad has beer and power tools... Who knows what could happen.

Kisses, Skyboy

P.S. Dad wants me to add that the only power tool involved was a cordless drill. He didn't have anything that could have injured him severely. The only injuries involved were a few splinters resulting in the necessity to dig them out with a pocket knife blade, but it wouldn't have been a man project if he didn't bleed on it.

16 woo woos:

Think yourselves lucky, when our Mummy goes on holiday NSFF Daddy want us in kennels, because he hasn't got time to look after us. How much time do two little doggies need?! NSFF Daddy says lots because we are spoiled, cheek!

Yeah, sometimes dads don't do as good a job with doggies as mums and they can be absent minded.

Our dad thinks opening the door to the yard is good enough but he doesn't play with us like momma.

Our hu-dad is pretty cool and plays with us all of the time. We even are his furry alarm clock and pounce on him to say, get up, it is time for us to go outside. He responds really well.

I think that now that your dad has built the swing set, that he will probably just settle down to a beer only diet. That's usually a good thing. You might get more snacks!

Woo if you need me!

The Army of Four said...

Wow, my friend Adrill got to hang out with your dad? That sounds cool. I'll be right over. I love going down sliding boards!

Sir Jack at your service, Sire. Our dad is pretty cool, too, he takes us for walks & everything. But since we've moved & rent this house, he doesn't do all those man projects anymore. We miss the sound of power tools. Lots of times it meant cool stuff for us!

Woos & a-roos,
Star & Jack a-roo

Our daddy never really did anything for us before. He loves dogs, he loves us but he doesn't really want to get involved in any doggy stuff. That's why Mommy needs to be home take care of us or else who knows what might happen to us. Hee! We still love our Daddy!

If it was a girls weekend, Brook and Sunshine Meadow should have gone. And you and Canyon should have been outside doing guy stuff.

Dakota said...

Um, two words for your dad.

The Mom did that teapot thing two times before she found the magical electric teapot.

Thank Dog we survived!

The Husky in the Window said...
