I forgot to post yesterday, but that’s what my mom gets for tasking 𝙢𝙚 with this responsibility. Again, I have no thumbs; and I also have an overwhelming instinct to chase things and eat things and am admittedly quite easily distracted….so I’ll just have to do the best I can.
Actually that was my big take away from yesterday and today—𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐰𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐝𝐨 𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐝𝐨. 𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐤.
With all my humans home, I can’t stay with each one of them while they work, and also guard the house, and visit my best friend behind the fence. I can only do what I can do—and that’s ok.
My younger humans have started spending a lot of time in front of their computers and those portable rectangle things (𝑡ℎ𝑎𝑡 𝐼 𝑑𝑖𝑠𝑐𝑜𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑒𝑑 𝑎𝑠 𝑎 𝑝𝑢𝑝𝑝𝑦 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑙𝑙𝑦 𝑎𝑝𝑝𝑙𝑒𝑠!)
Mom says they are at school, but I thought school was when they drove away?? I guess school means something else now…
I think now it means to stop barking and be quiet because no one seems to appreciate my loud defense of our home while the kids are at “school!”
It actually seems like everyone is figuring out what words mean now. Words like work, school, church, and practice all seem to have new meanings. I didn’t know words could change like that…
But it’s ok. I learned what those words meant once, and I can learn them again. At least eat, treat, and walk haven’t changed!!!
I guess while we’re all figuring it out, we will just do the best we can do. And try to help each other remember to laugh and play (and maybe even cry a little) along the way. (I make sure to stay extra close to my mom when she needs a good cry….it seems to help her a little)
So if you need a someone to tell you it’s ok to not do things perfectly or to have this new language and world figured out yet, then take it from me….𝒊𝒕’𝒔 𝒐𝒌 𝒕𝒐 𝒔𝒊𝒎𝒑𝒍𝒚 𝒅𝒐 𝒘𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒂𝒏 𝒅𝒐 𝒇𝒐𝒓 𝒏𝒐𝒘.
(But…if you have an extra treat, feel free to send it my way!)
