Let me start by saying that I was only following Sadie, she is the oldest in the family and I figure if it is OK for her, then it must be OK for me too!
It all started when Mom let us out to play in the snow. She was doing laundry, and we knew we had a few extra minutes before she would make us come in. Now, Sadie doesn't have an Invisible Fence Collar on, I heard Mom and Dad say it was because she knows how to behave and doesn't go far. But Sam, Lucie and I are forced into wearing these torturous devices. So, as usual, Sadie goes off into the woods, just far enough to make sure the squirrels stay up in the tree and don't come over into our bird feeders. Then she looked at the three of us and started teasing and taunting us! Well, we all looked at each other and decided that if we were going to get tortured, may as well make it worth our while...so we all ran for it. Sam told me that if you run fast enough it only hurts for a second or two. He was right! It was so much fun!!! Oh my God, talk about wonderful smells and fun and trees and rocks and sticks! It was like being in heaven, I swear!
...Then Mom figured it out! Oh shit, were we in trouble! I really knew we were in for it because Mom was yelling and clapping her hands and Sam went running, he isn't stupid like Lucie and I are. Once Mom put her boots on, I got so scared I didn't know where to run... So I just sat there until she came over to me and gave me a push in the right direction. Boy was she pissed at us. Lucie went running (never knew she could go that fast), but I passed her by in 2 seconds flat.
I guess I am going to have to sit on the couch, all by myself the rest of the day, Mom still doesn't look happy and I know darn well that she is going to tell Dad on us as soon as he gets home.
