My Dog’s Life

This week  took a turn from organized to chaotic. So I have given over my blog to my dog Sadie to give you a brief perspective into her life. I beg to disagree with most of her points!

If you ever listened to the Beatles songs a Hard Days Night then you already know my life in the first two lines. However, there is no sleep for me and I do work like a dog. I feel as if most days  no one appreciates all of my hard work!

Did you know that I’m rustled out of bed at the crack of dawn?  Two little giants rumble in and jump on top of me with cuddles. Don’t they realize I need sleep! I’m up all night listening to the rabbits under the step and people passing on the side-walk. I even have to listen to snores and toots!  It’s enough for anyone to have a sleepless night.

The next thing you know, the morning chaos erupts, everyone is out the door, and I’m left stuck in my crate. My owner says, “It’s because I cannot be trusted.” It wasn’t my fault the front window blinds got pulled  down by my paws and the lovely white panels were calling me to chew them into tiny delicious pieces. I’m only a dog after all…

It’s when my Mom returns home lets me out of the crate she gives me the most daunting task in dogs history. I have to work on getting rid of a closet full of shoes. Her house needs some major de-cluttering. I have been very proactive in helping solve this situation. I have been known to courageously seize the opportunity!

It is when no one is looking I  grab a shoe,  hide under the bed, and chew it until I’m caught! If I’m lucky they don’t discover the chewed shoe for at least a day! But that’s one more pair of shoes that doesn’t take up space on the shoe rack! One giant leap for interior spaciousness!

But the worst part of my day is supper! I get something dry and gross while they all eat steak! How fair is that? I have to tolerate the whole meal in silence waiting for a morsel to fall on the floor. I feel like such a barbarian!

Did you know you know she is not even paying me in treats for writing this? She’s such a cheapskate!

Phew! All of this typing has made me tired!I think I could go for a nap….

What do you think of a dog’s life? Do I have it rough?

  1. Aroo roo woof, bowwow, roo grrr! (Translated, I so agree with you, grrr!)

    Shoes are for the eating. Why, a distant cousin of yours managed to eat one from each when the purchaser arrived home with two pair. It was a glorious achievement!

  2. I don’t know how many times i have wished that I had the life of a dog only to think twice once it came to the food he eats… maybe I’m a bit more spoiled than I should admit…lol

    Loved your post!


  3. Oh, this made me miss having a dog in my life, so much! Even the shoe-chewing seems so sweet at this distance. I told my kids we would get a dog when they were four and 6. One year to go!

  4. Oh Sadie… You poor thing… My heart bleeds for you… You slave away all day and are not even appreciated! I think you should go on strike! I have the perfect plan. I bet if you stopped some of your work, say the decluttering of the shoes, maybe, just maybe, your mom will realize how much you do, and sneak you some steak as a payment…. The more you slack of your duties, the more I think your mom may appreciate your value….

  5. When your mom’s at work, you need to come over to my place. We can chase the donkeys, sniff the chickens, roll in cow patties and track the armadillo. When she gets home though – she’ll demand you get in the shower! I don’t like that part, but I learned it’s the price of having fun and sleeping on my mom’s bed!
