Sometimes neighbors can be very helpful.
Take mine, for instance.
Dirk and Tammy are always willing to pick up mail while we are away, watch the house, water the plants...
They are even willing to watch Miss Party, which to me is no small feat. Especially after losing their beloved Lacey.
'Cause, you know, my Miss Party is just a tad on the neurotic side.
I have come to see a different side of this dog while we are away.
Don't you wonder what they do while you are gone all day? What about several days?
Dirk caught her in action and took secret pictures which he then emailed me:
Can you even believe the audacity of this dog???
Caught in the act.
I tell you what, I'm not sure I can get over this.
CHIPS in MY bed.
How did she get the fridge open to get the coke can?
Wait a minute....we don't have coke in our fridge.
But I bet she does know where we keep the straws.
As if that's not enough, Dirk caught Miss Party and his son, Chris playing cards.
Then he tells me Miss Party cheats.
See how disgusted Chris looks?
Well, wouldn't you be if you lost at cards to a dog?
I mean really.
The humiliation of it all.
Miss Party didn't do this at while she was at my mom's. I asked.
The only thing she did there was drag out every box of cereal she could find from the cupboard and nicely distribute it all over the living room. Well, that and the bag of chocolates.
Ummmmm...and maybe mom's slippers so that mom couldn't find them for three days.
But nothing like this frivolity and mayhem.
Maybe it's being with the neighbors that she thinks she can cut loose, I don't know, what do you think?
