Let sleeping dogs lie, and they will lie to you all day long.
Most dogs wake up when you only think about going out somewhere
I see she is irritated but in truth, if she slept through all the preparations and kerfuffle of going for a ride with the baby, she was out to the world.
“You did not miss anything, it was my version of the vet’s.”
My parents started spelling C-A-R and R-I-DE- until the dog figured out what they meant. Then it was “Voiture” and “Monter”. Had she lived another month or so, I have no doubt Flossie would have caught on to French, as well.
OMG if this doesn’t remind me of Alex…he would of have a fit if we didn’t take him in the car with us….he loved going for car rides, no matter where it was. His tail would start wagging and a big smile for us!
Shortly after I got my license, I took my father’s car for a short trip. My father was taking a nap, so I didn’t tell him. (In whatever defense this may offer me, I was going to a local drugstore to apply for a part time job.)
He got his revenge by waiting until I got home and telling me he had just gotten done reporting the car stolen. He strung me along for a good hour or two before he couldn’t hold back his laughter anymore. It worked, though – never took either his car or my mom’s car without permission again.
That must have been quite a deep sleep, Sophie!
