A Stressful Day in Arwen's Life

Hi! It's me, Arwen, Meghann's wonderful perfect grown up puppy dog! I have a story for you today: When mommy was a kid, her parents gave her a stuffed baby seal toy (not a real one, don't worry!), which her cat, Gandalf, soon stole as his own special toy. When I came around, with all my wonderful doggyness, Gandalf and I stole it from each other as our favorite play toy. This went back and forth for years, until Gandalf went to the Rainbow Bridge last year, and since then, I have become incredibly attached to this seal. Mommy has tried to sew the stuffing back in it many times, but I have told her very clearly that I like it full of holes, floppy without stuffing, and DIRTY! Well, mommy got disgusted the other day and threw it in this big white machine! It started making sloshing sounds and wouldn't let my seal out for me to play with no matter how much I smelled it and tried to get on top of it!!I sniffed the top - I even tried to jump up there, but mommy wasn't fast enough with the camera....
I sniffed the side.....and then when mommy went back upstairs to fold some of the big people clothes and I stayed down right beside the washing machine, waiting. Mommy couldn't find me after a few minutes so she came back downstairs to find me giving her the evil laser eyes, wanting my seal! Please mommy, I need it!
Mommy sighed and said, "This calls for specialist equipment...."
"A big gob of peanut butter, her favorite cookies and her Kong ought to do the trick!".... and it did, but it took a while to get me upstairs....
And then FINALLY! Mommy brought a big basket of big people clothes upstairs and hidden in it was...you guessed it! My seal! We had a very happy reunion where I got to smell it, then I chewed it and now I am back to carrying it all through the house where ever I go :)
Mommy says to remember to enter her contest this month to win a pair of fancy earrings. Click HERE for the post.
Thanks for listening to my story, I hope you have a happy Wednesday!
...and Arwen too!

  2. Psssst... Arwen! I was very relieved to see you got your seal back, hang on to it tight! Maybe you should take something of your Mommy's and bury it in the garden -- just for an hour or two! xxRaff Humans just don't grasp the concept that 'dirty' is GOOD!

  5. I loved your post Arwen! But I'm sorry to tell you mothers are sometimes right about things. And I suspect your was in this case. Anyway I see your anguish is over and your beloved seal is back where it belongs. In your mouth!

  6. Arwen, you are so sweet! I'm sure it was stressful waiting on your seal but at least you got a yummy snack while you waited. And it's so cute seeing you reunited with your seal!

  11. Aww poor Arwen, Dogs are funny like that. I am sure that the seal was happy for a few minutes alone and a good bath.
