The Topher Diaries
The Zoo Crew Update
Welcome to our daily blog. Guess what we are going to talk about today?
That's right...Puppies...it's all about Puppies.
What's new? Nothing. They play rough.
They think Tanker is their mom.
They lay around and do nothing.
I lay around and do nothing.
We lay around together and do nothing.
Little Bit lays around in the laundry and does nothing.
At the end of the day, we got nothing done.
However, Mom and Dad got one crate off Craigslist for $30.
Don't the puppies look nice in their new crate? Mom is looking for three more so we can all have one of our own.
And Mom got a haircut today. It was her first haircut in three months. She doesn't cut her hair often.
Then we got a bad thunderstorm and tornado warning. We went to the basement. We lost power. Nobody was stressed. The puppies played in the crate and Tanker and I slept. The cats slept in their crates.
We are a calm Zoo Crew. Mom and Dad want to test us and get us certified as Crisis/Disaster Relief Dogs. We will be good at it. They think the puppies will be good at it too. They have found nothing that scares us or stresses us out.
We are laying under the stairs in the basement while the storm passes through with the tornado warning. After helping the tornado victims in Alabama, there are two things Dad takes really seriously: Tornadoes and Ticks.
They both suck. Literally.
I am pretty sure the basement is tornado and tick free, so that's our safe spot.
Storm has now passed. Dad is asleep on the couch. Dad still does not feel well. His hands and knees hurt him. He is very tired. All of us in the Zoo Crew take turns laying with him to make him feel better. Tanker and I are teaching the puppies how to be therapy dogs. We are all a team.
