29: Wake-up Call

From Chicken Soup for the Soul: I Can't Believe My Dog Did That!

Wake-up Call

I wonder what goes through his mind when he sees us peeing in his water bowl.

~Penny Ward Moser

It was early in the morning.

I was half asleep, no doubt.

I hadn’t had my coffee.

The dog had not gone out.

At the bottom of the stairs,

I had left the gate undone.

Instead of staying with me,

Aspen sniffed out some new fun.

She dashed into our room,

and found her Daddy Dear,

saw him sleeping in his bed,

jumped high onto his rear,

grew more and more excited,

went rushing toward his head,

then peed upon his face

(won’t repeat what Daddy said)

Aspen heard an earful,

but I bet that I heard more.

Now taking out that dog

is my most important chore!
