I wanted to look my best for the tall person’s return from London so I asked De to give me a bath. De inspected me for a moment and then smiled and rolled up her sleeves.
She ran the water for me and I checked it before getting in. I like a warm bath, not too hot and not too cold.
Lovely Mari helped and together they gave me a thorough wash. There was a lot of splashing and giggling and everyone got soaking wet.
Even I got a little wet!
Anyway, De and Lovely Mari dried me off and made me fluffy again.
When the tall person did arrive home and opened the door he kept looking around saying “Where’s my Bassa?” I was right in front of him, jumping up and licking his hand. “I’m here, I’m here!” I barked. “Ah”, he said, “I didn’t recognise you. You look so clean and fluffy!”
I was pleased I made the effort.
P.S. I think De and Lovely Mari have dried out now!
The tall person has returned from London. He flew in late last night and De and the little person went to the airport to meet him. I stayed at home and waited by the front door. His plane was late so I had to wait a long time but when he did get home and opened the door I was crazy happy! A week without the tall person is a long time.
I immediately noticed that he was wearing new shoes. He told me that they are “power walking” shoes. Hmm, I hope they are as fast as my “power walking” paws!
We both agreed that we would test out our new “power walking” combination in the morning.
I went to sleep very happy.
In the morning, after the school bus had collected the little person, I set off with the tall person on a walk around the neighborhood. It felt good to be exploring again. De had taken me out whilst the tall person was away but she is not a real explorer like the tall person.
It was a beautiful morning and we walked and walked.
After a while we stopped to review the performance of the tall person’s “power walking” shoes and we both agreed that they are a very good match for my “power walking” paws.
Welcome home tall person. I like your shoes!
As I have been looking through my back catalog of posts I’ve seen several of me and the little person but this is one of my favorites. It was a very hot day and we were both in the toy room trying to keep cool. I think he was panting more than me!
The tall person is flying back from London today so this post is the last in my journey down memory lane. I hope you have enjoyed our walk into the past!
How could I finish our journey without a post of me and lovely De? De is the only other girl in the house and we often share ‘girl time’ together. She is kind and soft and great fun to play with and……..she does the cooking so she is a good person to know!
I love nuts, especially large hard shell nuts such as walnuts. I can easily crack them open with my teeth. In this post you can see examples of my nut cracking technique!
These are some of the tall person’s favorite pictures of me. He says that I look like the Hound of the Baskervilles. I like the first photo. I have an eerie glint of my eye!
The tall person has taught me many things about the world and I try to practise what I have learned. In this post, I remembered what the tall person told me about little birds and how their parents cannot ignore their open mouths and continuously stuff food into them. I thought I would try that!
I spend a lot of time with the tall person. He is usually the first person I see in the morning and the last person I see at night. We go out for long walks several times a day and we explore the forest and the neighborhood together. He is kind and funny and has helped me understand the world and all the things in it. He is my best friend.
In this post from several months ago we were chilling out in the bathroom and enjoying each other’s company.
