Stuck on Me!

My foot is right by the red dot.

I was literally, Stuck on Me, Miss Penny speaking. As you know I’m waiting to get a haircut. Susan trims the knots, but misses a few and I sometimes get my nails caught. This morning was the worst. I’m a happy little dog, you can tell by my high-speed tail. We’ve just come back from a walk and I’m waiting for my breakfast. I have an itch, so I lift my back leg and have a good old scratch, right behind my ear. Awh! That was good and then panic, I can’t move. My back foot is stuck in my ear, I can smell the chicken for breakfast, I’m hungry. Susan looks at me and tells me to eat my breakfast—I can be a bit picky, but I like chicken. I can’t move, she ignores me. Help! Can’t she see? I’m stuck! Am I going to die? She frowns and asks me what’s wrong. Psst! One of these days I’ll give her a shock and answer, like Pluto on YouTube. In the meantime, my foot is still in my ear, picture it, my back foot—a contortionist I am

Phew a close one!

not. Finally, Mum realizes I’m stuck, Yep, no confusion Mum for the lovie stuff and Susan for the author business. This is an abuse of the lovie stuff. Mum rescue me? Oh no, it’s a horror movie, the scissors approach like monster jaws snapping open and closed. My ear! Please don’t cut my ear off! My foot won’t budge. Mum had to slide her fingers under my foot, into my neck and ear. I held my breath, two swift clips and I’m free. Phew! That was a scary morning, but the chicken was good and I got an extra Milkbone. What! A tad dramatic, you say. I’d like to see Mum put her foot in her ear. Maybe not! 🥺
