Grumpy Toby

I was sitting on my beanbag chair (OK, pile of dirty laundry) when Toby barged into the bedroom and started harrumphing. Snort this, stomp that. “Mom, get off of the laundry.” Whatever. I moved aside so my obviously upset puppy could go to bed.

A few minutes later I walked out of the room and was greeted by this:

Evidently Toby had wanted to go outside to play. He got discouraged when I didn’t notice him trying to bring me my boot and his leash, so he threw himself in the laundry.

Cairn terrier fast asleep in the dirty laundry.

If you’re not going to pay attention to me, I’m going to bed.

That's great, sweetie. You're so helpful. Now we just haveto work on your timing.

This wasn’t the first time the boot/leash things happened.

  1. Aw, and Ha! Sweet, Toby! You are so wonderful and helpful!
    Coops and I think it’s your Mom whose timing is off! She needs to get it together! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›
    Walks and play should always take priority over baths! And if you can’t take a walk…yes, for sure you should nap! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€
    PATS and RUBS!!! for you! πŸ™‚
    And (((HUGS))) for you Mom! πŸ™‚

  2. Wow that’s a lot of laundry to accumulate. Tons. Your machine broken? Maybe a power outage? Some other force majeur? 😈 Good job, Toby on the attempted motivation of your DogMom. Too bad she couldn’t take you out but she was busy doing the lau…never mind.
