Gracie’s Quarantine Journal
Day 19 or 20? (does anyone know what day it is anymore?)
I used to not like Saturdays and Sundays much because I was alone a lot. I don’t know where my family would go, but they went a lot! Sometimes I got to go with them to the park—sometimes we even went to the lake! But most of the time I got left here while they went…somewhere.
When they would leave I would drown my sorrows in the comfy sofa cushions! Technically I wasn’t supposed to be on the sofa, but what is a dog supposed to do when they feel so alone?? My only consolation was the comfy yellow sofa (which mom now calls my sofa of sadness)
But now, Saturdays and Sundays are my favorite days! Because now my family stays home and we play outside All. Day. Long!
I guess they finally felt bad enough about leaving me that they decided to never do it again! All of my pouting and laying around looking as sad as I felt finally paid off! Never underestimate the power of a good pout!
My family lies around pouting on their own sofa of sadness a lot these days too. But I’m not sure why…I mean I NEVER leave them! So I know it’s not that.
I guess humans sometimes get sad for other reasons.
Sad times happen I guess. But thankfully we have each other to help us get through it and to help us feel better.
Mom always helps me feel better when she rubs my belly—and especially when she gives me a treat!
Hmm…I wonder if I can rub mom’s belly for her?? That will make her feel better. And I will definitely share a treat with her! She will LOVE my new dried salmon treats! They are SO good.
I hope everyone has somewhere they can go when they need to be sad for a little bit (sometimes a sofa of sadness really does help). But I also hope you have someone to rub your belly and give you a treat to help you feel better.
If not, let me know and I’ll get my mom to mail you one of my salmon treats. I don’t think she can mail you a belly rub though…but I’ll ask!
Stay safe and remember to wash your paws!
