|Abby, the subject in question|
So, wait till you hear this story! Last Thursday, M'Lady had two loads of laundry out on the line before dawn. (Now, that might sound really ambitious, but let's not forget that it doesn't get light around here till 8 am). Anyway, that's a lotta laundry! She had hung them there early so that they could dry all day in the gentle spring breeze.
Well! Abby came over with FarmGirl, to torment us while FarmGirl worked with M'Lady in the office. Abby is a pretty, petite, young, black Labrador-German Shorthair mix. She's crazy! She's just learning what's what, she doesn't know acceptable behaviour like Brodi and YoursTruly. She races around the yard like a psychotic Tazmanian Devil, whines incessantly and drives us to insanity!
|See? No Shame!|
We laid back and watched her work. She pulled nearly every single item off the line, and romped with them, still wet, dragging them all over the yard! The worst was that M'Lady had hung her one good pair of linen dress slacks among the drying laundry!
Then, Abby dragged most everything to my bed, and made a nest out of them, and laid down on top of it all!
After Abby was worn out with all her romping, and was comfortable on her princess-and-the-pea bed, M'Lady happened to look out, and noticed clothes scattered all over the yard, the laundry line empty, and Abby snoozing on what looked like a mountain of clothes! Oh man, t-r-o-u-b-l-e!
|Re-hanging the re-washed clothes|
Brodi and I, we stayed out-of-the-way, as you would guess. We kinda made ourselves invisible by holing-up under the huge lilac bush by the pasture fence. We thought for sure Abby was in for it, but guess what? FarmGirl took her gently by the collar and sweetly said "No, no, Abby, bad girl," and gave her a little tap-tap on her paw as a spanking.
What??? That was it? A little paw-slapping? No fair! Aww, Abby's not so bad, she just needs more learnin'!
Next time, we'll have to dream up something that will really put Abby in the pig-pen. Sheesh!
Well, gotta go, snoozin' in the sunshine!
Keep your tail waggin'!
