What a morning!

Oscar here.

What a morning I have had so far. Absolutely chaotic!
Mornings like today could lead a dog to drink!

Sometime during the night a thunderstorm rolled in. Some of the loudest booms I have ever heard! I did my best to burrow even further under the covers but my mom keep kicking me away. She kept mumbling something about, "Crazy dog! Move over! You are pushing me off my king size bed! How can such a little dog take up so much room? Quit goosing me! Mumble, mumble, mumble..."

I didn't hear the rest because I had burrowed my head into the back of her legs to drown out the thunder.
The thunder was so loud that my little brain didn't even register that with thunder comes rain.

When mom finally got up to take us outside,
grumbling about coffee as we made our way through the kitchen, the inevitable hit me. I would have to go outside into the rain.

Mom opened the door and practically shove me outside. Of course Tucker bounced out into the precipitation like its no big deal. (That boy isn't playing with a full deck most of the time though). Mom put the leash on Tinkerbell and met us outside with umbrella in hand. I tried to tell her (whine at her feet) that it was raining and I'm not too keen on rain. Can't we do this potty thing after the rain stops? But she wanted nothing to do with my wants and needs and through clenched teeth kept telling me to get out there and go potty. I figured I had no choice. Tinkerbell had already done her thing and apparently so had Tucker because he was jumping up trying to catch raindrops. Seriously, he's not right!

Mom decided she had had enough waiting on me so she took Tinkerbell and Tucker back inside. I was stuck out in the rain by myself. Cold, wet, and lonely, I decided to just do it. I found my spot, squatted to take a poo and midway through the deed...

A STUPID, STINKING RABBIT DARTED OUT FROM UNDER OUR DECK!!!!! I was so scared I ran back to the house forgetting about the task I was in the middle of, still having poo dangling from my rear. And to make matters worse...


She told me to be a man and get out there and finish the job. At this point I was in tears and whining loud enough to wake the neighbors so mom grabbed the umbrella and went back out to the yard with me. I finished the deed so fast and ran back to the door that by the time mom caught up with me, she was laughing hysterically. She said she'd never seen a
wiener dog move so fast.

Totally traumatized by the events of my morning. I'm going to spend a bit of time on the computer looking up therapists and then I'm tucking back under the covers and taking me a big, fat nap.

A boy can only handle so much
commotion in a day.

Oh, we're mortified for you! What a horrible night and morning you've had. Take a loooooong nap and have a better day.

Oh Dear Oscar
What a traumatic experience for you! Honestly these humans have no idea! We completely understand why you didn't want to go out in the first place and why you needed to get in quick!
Our mum is also laughing hysterically - sometimes humans are so insensitive.
We don't think you need a therapist just a nice quiet weekend with some nice snugs and your favourite treats!
You looked so sad in your wee picture!
We feel for you. We are sending special basset hugs and snugs your way.
Take special care of your wee self.
love & kisses

Poor baby, I love the rain, but Scampi hates it too, Mom has to drag him out in it to go potty. Hmmm, wonder if Rabbit tastes like squirrel? We don't have any near us, I saw one once but it was too far to chase with Mommy on the leash....Nap time

For thunderstorms, try this: Sleep with your head under a pillow or snore really, really loud. It works for me. As far as rabbits go, teach em a lesson, show em who's boss. But do finish pooing first.

Awe you poor thing Oscar, I can not believe the night and the morning you had. I am so sorry. It rained here a lot but I do not remember any thunder? Oh well, enjoy your nap. =)

Poor baby, what a night & morning you had! You deserve an extra long nap today - and a special treat wouldn't hurt either!

Your friends

Chester's Mom said...

Oh Poor Oscar! Do you want me to call Social Services and tell them about your mean Mom? Maybe you should give her another chance. So do you think the rabbit is still in your yard? Huh? Huh? Huh?
Just askin' is all.
Woofs and slobbers!

Suzuki said...

Oh! Poor Oscar! How furry mean of your Mum to make you go outside in the rain and then laugh at you during your "situation". Sometimes Mummy's can be so mean.
Big licks to you

Painter Pack said...

What a horrible way to start your day, Oscar! I don't care for rain, but I'll go out as long as it's not coming down in buckets. But there is no way I could do a "job" when there is a rabbit around! You need howling lessing from us huskies. That gets you into the house real fast!!

Mango said...
