Tonight MOM got out the suitcase and said something about Colorado. Woo Hoo we are going on a trip! I even packed my own bag.
"Look MOM I have a few of things almost ready to go."
"I think there is room for more treats, maybe even my bed."
"Goosey, you can't come with me."
"I need to go to Colorado for work."
"Work? What, are there lost sheep over there? People who need help? I'm good at finding the lost and helping. I could be a big help."
"Gooseberry, there are lost sheep, and those in need everywhere. That's not why I am going. It's our churches annual conference. It's like a bunch of meetings and some worship. Plus I have to fly and you have never done that. I could not bare to know you were in the belly of a plane all alone."
"I think I can handle it. Look if I take out a few things I can fit right in here. And maybe you could just put me in the bag under your seat or I hear they have a safe place in the thing over your head."
"No Goose. You will be just fine. You are going to stay with Bert. You two and all the other dogs at Bert's place will have a great time."
"Do you know who else is at Bert's?"
"Allred is there, ALLRED!" I heard that yesterday Miss Vickie found a dead Ostrich behind the TV that Allred deaded. An Ostrich! What do you think he will do to your Goose?"
"Really, an Ostrich? OK Goosey. But you will be fine and you can call me every night."
No trip for me. :( Well I do get to go to Bert's. I wonder if my favorite feline Nellie Bellie could tell-a-port over and talk to Allred. I guess while MOM is gone, WITHOUT ME, I will help Bert with his blog. Until my MOM returns, I think she'll be back in like 87 days. Think of me friends and chew a stick and play, play, play.
