Pickles’ Diary: Why, oh why?

Posted on

Dear Diary,

All I can say is that it was a total nightmare.

It began when Betty left forever. I begged her not to go, but she brushed me off and went out the door.

Then, what might have been days later (I’m not really sure), she returns. I was so excited to see her and relieved to know she wasn’t injured in a raccoon fight or worse. She seemed happy to see me, too, and asked me if I wanted to go for a ride.

A ride!

We went to the house of several of my friends. When we walked in, I had to stay on leash because there were other dogs there, and maybe some cats. But all the people were friendly, and I peeked into a few doorways to say hello before settling in where the others were sitting.

We were having a perfectly nice time when one of my friends invited us into another room for a visit. That’s when the betrayal happened.

Once the hugs and kisses were over, Betty and my friend forced me to sit on a high table – not at all like the table I like to stand on at home. Then, while Betty held me down, my friend stuck me with something sharp. It was horrible. Everything after that is a blur until I got down from the table.

Then I ran around to say goodbye to everyone before getting in the car. We took a nice ride and ended up back at home, where I played in the backyard and took a nap with Poppy.

Here’s a picture of me during the ordeal. My toughness and bravery helped get me through it.

    Yay Pickles!
    You’re so brave and a role model for pups like me.

    PS I’m sitting on the deck waiting for a shampoo…..I rolled in what Emilie calls “poop”!
    Hope I don’t take that “ride” today. XXXNER

  2. I love your blog. Too funny! Kristen

  3. Pickles, you are so brave! I wish some of your toughness would rub off on me. I’m having a tough week myself, my people left me and I don’t know if they will ever return! Is there a ride and sharp needle in my future? One never knows! I miss my park friends even if my daddy took me twice this weekend, I just didn’t feel like playing without my mommy around….

  4. “It all began when Betty left forever.” Haha, so true. If only they understood “I’m coming right back!!”
