I think they're going on holiday. The question is - are they taking me with them or are they leaving me to be bored with Sammy cos he's out or asleep all the time? .......

Still depressed

It doesn't get any better. The men came again today and did lots more banging and things in the back room. They've gone now and taken all the stuff with them that they brought but they've still left a horrible hard floor in there. I think they must have finished as well because the she and he boss have put everything back in there. They can't be serious. I've got nowhere good to lie any more except my bed and that's for nighttime. To make things even worse (could they get worse?), the skies been making that scary noise again tonight. I want it all back to normal

I don't understand all this. Last night, the she and he boss moved all the furniture from the back room to the front so I can't get to the front window to check out for cats, postmen, paper boys, etc, etc.
Then today, two men came to be my friends, took up all the soft floor in the back gardeny room and have put this hard stuff down so I've got nothing comfy to sit on and look out the back window for squirrels now either. What's a dog s'posed to do? AND it looks like it's all staying this way because the nice men have gone now but no one's put anything back in the garden room so no one sits around with me except in the garden and I don't know what to do with myself

Of mice and dogs

That's been a nice weekend. Wasn't it lovely to have the sunshine yesterday? (shame about today). I took the she boss and Sammy for a good walk last night and showed Sammy a new place that we've found. I think he was impressed. Ed and Beth had been to see me as well and spent a long time in the garden with me and the she boss.
The she boss caught a mouse in our sun lounge today. I think a few have been living there for a while and I don't mind. They all go to make life interesting. Anyway, she'd brought one of those mousemane mouse traps home. We've had them before. The last ones, the mice ate their way out of. The one before that, she forgot to check and the mouse died of starvation/suffocation/loneliness. So much for being kind. He'd have been better off having his neck broken in a snap trap but we never know how our end will come.
This time she got it right. He looked like good fun to play with but she wouldn't let me. Instead, we took it out in the car!!!! I'm not sure how much the she boss had thought that one through but what about if it got out of the trap while we were on the move - or when we were stationary in the car for that matter! We drove half a mile to the secure mental health unit for young people and women and let it out on their drive! I hope he doesn't have any ill effects. I'd hate him to find his way back having picked up any disturbances. For a worrying minute, we thought he would decide it was better to hop back in the car than face the rain that was pouring down. I wonder where he is now? And I wonder if we'll get any more. I notice the she boss has sacrificed another Malteser as bait. But I know her game - one for the mouse, 3 for her. And all I get is a couple of yeast tablets or grapes. Still it's all food and better than mushrooms or sprouts. Yuk

Alright, I know. I said I don't really do TV but did any of you see The Elephant Man the other night? (I would have posted this before but our internet's been down :(. It was really good but very sad. What was good about it was that I could see it and sat and watched it with my family and friend Peter. I don't understand what they're usually looking at and am only interested if I can hear some animal friends but I could see this one. They thought it was something to do with black & white or something. Don't know what they meant. I think they had all seen it before as they kept giving away what happened next which was most annoying. I did give out some dirty looks but they didn't take the hint.
I liked that Elephant Man and would have been his friend if i'd have met him. I would have looked after him and kept the bad people away from him better than that doctor guy did. i wonder if they have elephant dogs?

That she boss of mine is barmy. There we all are, go to bed at a reasonable time (or some of us do Sammy, Beth!), I settle down, all nice and cozy then the she boss comes back downstairs again a coupld of hours later to disturb me. I usually pretend to be asleep because that's what I'd prefer to be doing. She does daft stuff like make a cup of tea, go on the computer, do puzzle things or read - or all of them, one after the other.
Now for me, night time's for sleep and daytimes for being active and that's how I stay so slim(mish). Anything you're going to do, do it faster or the long way round. For instance, I never walk after a squirrel or walk to the front window or door to see the postman off. I always go as fast as I can then I don't feel so bad when I eat anything I find lying around. None of this wandering round the house at night. Mind you, I usually get a nice cuddle out of it before she goes back up again.

Returning friends

Beth's come home to see me and I'm sure I heard her say she'd missed me. The only other person who ever says that is the she boss. It's nice to feel appreciated. She seems to come always in that funny little car now so it must be hers. Perhaps she'll give me a ride sometime. It would be fun with the roof down - that's if it ever stops raining.
