Hi, Wonderfuls 🙂
Great first day back to work after 2 weeks off…but, not for every member of my household!
I know animals are very sensitive, and one of my dogs (Jubilee) is evidence of that…she has an uncanny sixth sense.
Last night–sensing something was about to change–she anxiously spent hours and hours clicking back and forth (across hardwood floors) throughout the night…
And, I literally mean ALL night!!!
Instead of sleeping on my bed as usual, she kept jumping down and tap, tap, tapping all around the upstairs (nails clicking incessantly…and driving me nuts!!!).
After retrieving her multiple times, I couldn’t take it any more, and took her downstairs–determined to have her sleep in the living room.
Then, I barricaded the stairs without any real worry she’d navigate them—she fell down them once, and I’ve had to carry her up ever since.
Well, approximately 30 minutes later, I wake to click, click, clicking…
Against the odds, she was back.
I put her up on the bed and down she jumped…and, she clicked until I don’t know when…
but, when I woke to the alarm, she was asleep in my closet.
Fast forward to 4:30pm…
I get home from work, and Jubilee is nowhere to be seen…
I called and called, and just when panic was about to set in–I heard her whining…panic kicked it up a notch!
I went upstairs, then thought the whining was coming from the box at the bottom of the stairs…
but, having raced down them, I realized the sound was was coming from upstairs.
There was Jubilee–in the bathtub.
13 years old, she’s never jumped in before.
What possessed her?
I don’t know how long she was trapped in there (she’s too tiny to jump out) but she sure was thirsty!!!
I ‘m soooo grateful she’s okay!
Meanwhile, (12 year-old “puppy”, Frosty) made me comfort him, as if he’d been the one trapped…
What a (chubby) baby…
Having been left alone downstairs, while Jubie was stuck in a porcelain prison, was just too much for him to bear (he’s such a love, but not all that empathetic/protective).
It’s always all about him.
Jubilee, bless her heart, is acting as though the whole thing never happened.
Guess who’s going to bed early tonight?
Anyway, I hope you had a great day, Dazzlers…if not, maybe you can chalk it up to a stuck-in-the-bathtub kinda’ day… and remind yourself that a better one is on it’s way. 🙂
God Bless You And Your Loves,
