Whew! What a busy weekend! Uncle celebrated his birthday by hosting a three-day long drop-in for gaming. There was much Rockbanding and board games to be had.
A friend who was also celebrating her birthday came over on Saturday for dual birthday cakes. Of course neither Molly nor I were allowed cake – apparently chocolate cake is off-limits for dogs. To make up for it, we both got lots of snuggles and attention. Visiting people mean more Pug snuggles, and Pug snuggles make me very happy.
On Sunday Molly went for an all day visit with a family who may want to adopt her. At first I was very jealous that Molly got to get leashed up and taken away for car rides and long walks and snuggles without me, but then I remembered some of the advantages of being the only dog in the house.
When foster dogs are around, mum is very stingy giving out high-value treats like human food. Many of the foster dogs we take in have food allergies. More importantly, she has this stupid rule that foster dogs are not allowed to learn bad manners or habits, like expecting human food. You know, some days I really wonder about that lady.
Anyway, with Molly gone on her adventure, the human food rule was tossed. In addition to exclusive snuggling I also got lots of yummy treats that would normally be off-limits – peanuts, bits of chicken quesedilla, cheesies…. ahhh, the list goes on.
I was feeling a bit neglected because the humans were playing their game on the dining room table. Feeling bad, they finally invited me to play a round.
Molly did return from her visit. Sadly she was not adopted on the spot like Timmy was, but things do sound good for her. Paws crossed.
