Was It something I Said?

Was it something I said? Or, more likely, did?

T has gone away again. She packed a suitcase on Tuesday night and left on Wednesday with her sister­. I wouldn’t normally think it was my doing but I’ve been a little distracted lately, by the gophers that seem to everywhere around the farm, and the coyotes that have been coming close. And, when I’m distracted, I don’t always listen very well. Okay. When I’m distracted, I don’t listen at all. It’s like my ears just stop working.06-Chico-Sa-us-1One day recently, during a walk in the hay field, I ran off after a coyote. Apparently, T heard sounds that she thought were me calling for help and she came running. By the time I found my way back to her she dropped to the ground and burst into tears. I’m not sure if she was happy or sad or just out of breath but I sure got a big hug.

My ears work much better in a dog park.

So anyway, she left on Wednesday and then yesterday was her birthday, and I didn’t even get to tell her Happy Birthday. I hope she knew I was thinking about her … and missing her. And, because I was missing her, I got looking through some photos. So this Foto Fur-iday, the theme is “Me and T”.

She loves to do selfies with me.

After a bath, she gives me extra towelling because she knows how much I like it.

She’s always there with a hug, even when we’re not posing for a photo.

And sometimes we just hang out in the same space.

She takes me places, like to the Strathmore UFA in this picture…

And horseback riding in this one.

Even though I know I’m too big, she lets me sit on her lap…

No matter the weather.

And even at times when she prefers her solitude, she still lets me be close.

I hope she comes home soon. I promise to be good. Well … as good as I can with these faulty ears.

  1. Hang in there, Chico! T will be home soon. Occasionally humans will leave the home pack to visit another pack. I’m sure she loves you dearly, even if your ears work selectively. From your California friend ~Rebecca
