Bonnie n Puff...revisted

Bonnie, come here a few mintues please?

B: Me?

Yes, please! I need to talk to you about your 'interview with Puffy'.

B:  Ohhhhh....that.  Ummm....ok. 

Remember this photo?  Not long after you came to live here?  And how you used to play with Puffy?

B:  Yeah...we had some good times then.

You were a little harsh on old Puffers, weren't you?

B:  I was just truthin! Honest!

Well, you know, there are usually at least 2 sides to every story.  And you could have included some details that would have helped people understand him a little more too.  Like, how old is Puffy?

B:  Older'n dirt! 

And just how old is that?

B:  He'll by 17 in 2 weeks, and that reallllly is older'n dirt when yer a doggie.

Could you share a little with everyone about some of his daily challenges?

B:  Do I hafta?

Yes...unless you'd like me to ...ummm....interview you?  I'm sure there are a few things you'd...

B: OK OK I get the picture!   Sheesssh.  Well, to start with, he can't see or hear hardly at all.  Sometimes he just sits in the middle of the floor and whimpers till you or the Mr. come and get him.  And he limps a lot..and sometimes he has these funky spells...and sometimes his feetsies go out from under him.

How does he know to get up and eat in the morning?

B:  Do I hafta tell that?  Oh...kaaaaay.  Well, I go and BARK really high and loud.  That wakes him up.  Then I get his leash and bring him into the kitchen for brekky.

When we go on walkies, how does he get around?

B: Well, I used to rush off in a hurry, but lately, I've been getting in front of him so he can smell me and I walk really slow so he won't fall down.   He'll follow me anywhere. 

Now, that's much better Bonnie!  Can you tell everyone what you do when he's having one of his little spells?

B:  People will think I'm a softy! 

That's ok, you really are a sweetie you know.

B:  Sigh.....I push him up against the wall with my 'oversized snooter' and hold him up till you come and rescue him so he won't fall down and go boom. 

You want a cookie now? For being such a good girl and telling it more like it is?

B:  Can I have 2, please?

Oh, one for you and one for Puffy?

B:  Heck no!  Both are for ME!

I don't think you're a softie, Bonnie - just a good hearted, sensitive gal! How nice you do all that for ol' Puffers... I only ever tormented old Duncan here, put then again I was a young pup and just didn't get it yet. Looking out for you pack is a good thing. You get a big 'atta girl form us!!

Bonnie. We had a feeling there was this side of you. Are you gonna own it and be proud? Or deny it all in a day or two?

We know how WE'LL choose to think of you.

Hi Bonnie, we would be delighted to meet up at Mango Minster for a wee dram and a nice piece of shortbread.
Given we are not judging your group we cannot see that there will be any problem.
