HOW I CAME BACK TO VANCOUVER AND THEN HAD TO GO AWAY AGAIN

I HAVE BEEN VERY SAD SINCE AUNTIE ARI VISITED BECAUSE IT MADE ME EVEN MORE SAD THAT I DON’T LIVE IN VANCOUVER ANYMORE WITH ALL OF MY PEOPLE. I KEEP TELLING MUMMY WE SHOULD JUST GO HOME NOW, BUT SHE DOESN’T LISTEN.

BUT ONE DAY MUMMY STARTED PUTTING THINGS IN BAGS AND THEN SHE BOUGHT ME A BIG BOX AND I WONDERED WHAT WAS GOING ON. MY FRIEND GINNY HAS A BOX SO I THOUGHT MAYBE GINNY WAS COMING TO VISIT.

BUT THEN MUMMY PUT ME IN THE BOX AND GAVE ME CHEESE AND IT MADE ME REALLY SLEEPY.

LOTS OF SCARY STUFF HAPPENED AFTER THAT WITH STRANGERS AND LOUD NOISES BUT THEN AFTER A LONG TIME MY BOX WENT THUNK ONTO A METAL THING AND AUNTIE ARI WAS THERE AND SO WAS PSEUDO-GRANDMA AND AUNTIE KILEY AND AUNTIE KIM!

I WANTED TO GET ALL EXCITED BUT I WAS STILL REALLY SLEEPY AND FELT WEIRD SO I JUST WAITED UNTIL THEY LET ME OUT OF THE BOX, AND THEN GINNY WAS THERE! SHE BARKED AT ME BECAUSE IT HAD BEEN SUCH A LONG TIME THAT SHE DIDN’T RECOGNIZE ME. MAYBE ALBERTA MADE ME SMELL WEIRD.

THEN I FELT WEIRD AND KIND OF WOBBLY SO MOSTLY I SLEPT THE WHOLE CAR RIDE HOME.

AT HOME I FOUND MY COUCH AND I JUMPED ON IT AND NAPPED SOME MORE, AND THEN I JUMPED ON AUNTIE ARI’S BED AND WENT TO SLEEP. I THOUGHT MAYBE IT WAS ALL A DREAM AND WHEN I WOKE UP I WOULD BE IN ALBERTA AGAIN.

BUT WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS STILL IN VANCOUVER! IT WAS WEIRD BECAUSE IT WAS ALL WEIRD AND WHITE OUTSIDE, AND MUMMY AND AUNTIE ARI SAID IT WAS SNOW, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS WEIRD THAT THERE WAS SNOW IN VANCOUVER. BUT MY COUCH WAS STILL AWESOME AND I WAS HAPPY TO BE ON MY COUCH.

AFTER BREAKFAST WE WENT TO THE DOG PARK TO MEET PSEUDO-GRANDMA AND AUNTIE KILEY AND GINNY AND MY FRIENDS MINCHA AND GEORGIE AND PSEUDO-GRANDMA’S NEW DOG ROBBIE.

Georgie!

Robbie!

ROBBIE CAME FROM CALIFORNIA ON A PLANE IN A BOX (JUST LIKE I DID, EXCEPT FROM ALBERTA) AND BEFORE THAT HE HAD BEEN A STREET DOG, JUST LIKE ME! WE HAD LOTS TO TALK ABOUT. ALSO HE IS FUN TO CHASE AND BITE.

Dogpark with ALL the dogs.

GINNY GOT REALLY MUDDY AND THEN ROBBIE FORGOT HIS MANNERS SO PSEUDO-GRANDMA CALLED HIM “YOUNG MAN” AND SAID HE HAD TO GO BACK ON HIS LEASH.

Dogpark with ALL the dogs.

AND THEN IT GOT DARK AND WE HAD TO GO, EXCEPT I GOT A SURPRISE AND WE WENT TO DOGGY DISNEYLAND INSTEAD OF HOME!

IN THE MORNING MUMMY CUDDLED WITH ROBBIE AND SAID SHE LIKED HIM BETTER THAN ME BUT I’M PRETTY SURE SHE WAS ONLY JOKING.

AFTER BREAKFAST WE WENT TO SEE AUNTIE HAILEE AND MY FRIEND MAYA, AND AT AUNTIE HAILEE’S HOUSE MUMMY MET ANOTHER DOG SHE SAID SHE LIKED BETTER THAN ME.

BUT AFTER A WHILE IT WAS COLD SO MUMMY SAID WE HAD TO GO.

SO WE WENT HOME AND WATCHED LOTS OF TV INSTEAD.

AFTER THAT IT STARTED SNOWING LOTS AND LOTS AND AUNTIE ARI WAS WORRIED MAYBE THEY WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DRIVE US TO THE AIRPORT, SO I STARED OUT THE WINDOW AND WISHED IT WOULD SNOW HARDER, AND IT DID. BUT THEY MADE ME GET IN THE CAR ON THE LAST MORNING ANYWAY, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS DARK AND SCARY AND THE TIRES WERE ALL SLIPPY AND I KEPT TELLING THEM I DIDN’T MIND STAYING IN VANCOUVER WHILE MUMMY WENT BACK TO ALBERTA, BUT THEY DIDN’T LISTEN.

AT THE AIRPORT, THEY GAVE ME SLEEPY CHEESE AGAIN AND I HAD TO GO BACK IN THE BOX.

DO NOT WANT

DO NOT WANT

AUNTIE ARI AND PSEUDO-GRANDMA SAID GOODBYE TO ME AND THE BIG MEN PUT ME BACK ON THE ROLLY METAL TABLE. THEN THERE WERE LOTS MORE SCARY NOISES AND MORE STRANGERS AND I DIDN’T LIKE IT SO I WENT TO SLEEP AND WHEN I WOKE UP WE WERE BACK IN THE FLAT COLD PLACE AND MUMMY SAID SHE WAS REALLY SORRY.

THEN SHE STOPPED AT A PLACE WHERE SHE BUYS FOOD FOR THE CAR AND LOCKED THE DOOR BY ACCIDENT WITH ME STILL INSIDE THE CAR. WHEN PEOPLE CAME TO OPEN THE DOOR FOR HER I WAS STILL CONFUSED FROM THE SLEEPY CHEESE SO I BARKED AT THEM AND MUMMY TOLD ME I WAS BAD. I TOLD HER SHE COULD HAVE LEFT ME IN VANCOUVER BUT SHE WASN’T LISTENING.

NOW I AM BACK IN ALBERTA WHERE IT IS COLD AND THERE IS LOTS OF SNOW AND NONE OF MY PEOPLE, AND I AM SAD AGAIN. MAYBE MUMMY HAS LEFT ANOTHER SOCK FOR ME TO EAT.
