Slumber Party

July 18th, 2007

Monday night, my sister and her kids (and her Golden Retriever, Rusty) spent the night here so that she could watch Kenny the following  morning while Casey and I went to a meeting together.   Kenny was wiggling with excitement the whole time that his “big” cousins were really here for so long.  


Dudley  was so excited to have a fellow canine in the house that he  ran laps around the property for the  first  twenty minutes Rusty was here.   Actually, Dudley and Rusty were having so much fun,  we decided to let him stay for a few more days.     I’ve been wanting to get a brother for Dudley for a long time, and we figured that this would be a  fun way to see how it would be.   So far it’s been great, except that Rusty can’t quite get up the nerve to use the dog door.

Here is the update, from Dudley and Rusty’s point of view…

(Rusty)   *Sigh*   I wonder where the girl and the small girls went.   I wonder how the grey dog keeps getting outside?  


(Dudley) Rusty come play!   Rusty come play!   Outside!   Outside!   Squirels!     Ducks!     Jetskis!   Outside is great!   Outside!   COME OUTSIDE YOU FURRY LUG AND RUN WITH ME!

(Rusty)   I wonder why the grey dog won’t let me outside to play…

(Dudley)   Back inside.   I smell cookies!   Or is that a dirty diaper?   I love to smell.   COOKIES!   Come on you furry lug, help me crack open the cookie jar… Hey, there’s a tiny piece of deli meat in the small boy’s chair… mmmmm…. crumbs… I smell… Oh, scratch.   Oh yeah, right there, ooo!   Shake the head.   Oh yeah.   Whew.   I need a break.   Time to sit down.     Couch?   No, that’s not right.   Chair.   Yeah.   Sit down.   No, let me turn around once.   There!   No….. uh… one more time around… that’s it.   Ah.   Time to lick.   I love this….

(Rusty)   Hm.   The grey dog is on the chair.   He looks lonely.   I’ll go see if he needs someone to talk to…  


As I write, both dogs are pacing around my desk, nails clicking on the pergo, Rusty panting and Dudley sniffing.   But it’s not easy to ignore the fact that since Rusty’s been here, Dudley has been calmer and happier than I’ve seen him in a while.   I think he likes the company.
