Miss Penny speaking. Susan has been busy this week, which means I get bored and sulky.
I’m the picture of innocence, don’t you agree?
Most of you know that being ignored annoys me. Susan forgets who’s the boss sometimes; that’s when I get playful, looking for attention.
I like to play. Bouncing the ball is fun Susan says I get rambunctious, now that’s a new word added to my vocabulary. I whine when the ball rolls under the furniture. As I mentioned she’s busy so I get ‘the look’ believe me it’s quite scary.
What can I do next. Socks! I love socks.
I help Susan pull them off her feet at night. She wouldn’t thank me to pull them off now. I’ll sneak into the bedroom and see if there are any on the floor. I’m on luck.
She’s still busy, there’s a herd of people inside her laptop, the Zoom thing. I’ll never understand how people get into a laptop. Big changes are a foot. Talk about Amazon and algorithm, way over my head. As Susan’s assistant I should probably be in the office paying attention to the Zoom meeting.
Psst! not a chance, socks are more fun.
Susan has two feet so there are two socks, not four like me; feet that is. I only wear socks in the winter. I start with one and give it a good shake, then the other one. Oh boy, that feels good. Keeping my eye on the office I take them to my bed in the living room.
Oh no, Susan is calling me.
I’m usually in my office bed or on her knee when she’s working, she knows I’m missing. At least she’s paying attention. Um, the socks? She won’t notice.
That’s it for today folks.
Licks, woofs and doggie cuddles
