Hello people, Mouse here.
I have an Important Job to do right now. The Staff are both sick. Huge inconvenience to Me, of course, but they are decent help, and I must look after them (or, let’s face it, service will rapidly deteriorate). So far, the supply of meals, walkies, strokies and chickypops has not been affected, but if they get any worse, I foresee a Situation.
Dad is somewhat on the mend, but Mum is clearly not on top form. Not that I have any real complaints, but she’s doing an awful lot of snuffling and sneezing and is obviously in some discomfort. So I have taken on the onerous task of Keeping Her In Bed. Recovery must happen soon if I am to be kept in the style I deserve. Accordingly, I am undertaking Observation, and pinning her down when she shows signs of wanting to get up and Do Stuff. It’s a demanding task, and occasionally I simply have to close my eyes and take a quick snooze…
So far she has snuck away a couple of times (dishwasher, laundry, My meals, their meals, etc), but I can be very firm when necessary. On these occasions, the Paw of More becomes the Paw of Stay Right There Missy, Where D’you Think You’re Going?
We actually had to cancel today’s Coffee Morning; I couldn’t risk passing this bug of theirs on to my colleagues’ Staffs or I’d never hear the end of it. One must consider the important doggos in the case, don’t you agree?
Oh, the sacrifices I have to make for the sake of a comfortable life.
