Mother's Day Gifts

Gifts come in all shapes and sizes. As many of you know, I am a "very" needy dog. I suffer from separation anxiety and really do not like it when my family leaves me. Usually, someone stays behind to doggie sit me.

Today, my human brothers wanted to take my parents to Brunch. They wanted to celebrate Mother's Day with Mom. It was too hot for me to stay in the car, so they decided to leave me at home with my furry brothers and sister.

My family was sneaky. They left in shifts. They even took Mom's hand bag and shoes outside and put them in her car. They really faked me out. Normally, when I see Mom put her shoes on and get her hand bag, I begin to howl and snuggle close to her. Later, Dad exited and then Mom calmly slid out the door, too.

It only took Nanuq and I a short time to realize we had been "LEFT BEHIND." After a few woofs and howls between us we decided it would a great gift for Mom if we behaved while she was away.

Mom and Dad were gone about "TWO" hours, but when they returned we were found politely waiting at the back door. They were so proud of us. I do believe it was the best Mother's Day gift Mom has ever received. Our human siblings can never keep up with us furry kids. We always "one-up" them. Just kidding! I know Mom loved her Mother's day Brunch and gift from the human kids, too!

Woofs and Wags,

Aw I'm so proud of you Sitka.

Andrea, I'm glad you had a calm and enjoyable Mother's Day! :)

Thanks for your prayers.
Much love to you both.

Good dog Sitka! Otto thinks that every gift bag that comes in this house is for him. His nose is immediately in it. He was so jealous of the box of chocolates that I received last night that we had to sneak a dog treat into the box and then pull it out to give to him so he didn't feel left out!

Oh, and if we sing Happy Birthday, Otto gets very excited and barks. He also barks if we count.

Otto is very spoiled in that he's never left alone for very long. My hubby works from home, and I only work in the morning, so someone is usually here. He does behave himself though when he is "Left Behind"!

So glad that you and your brother found a great way to show your Mom, how great you two can be and waited patiently for her to get home.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

That was pretty sneaky! It was very nice of you and Nanuq to be so well-behaved for Mother's Day. I know your mom appreciated it:-)

Glad you had a great Mother's Day, Andrea.

I have noticed that our "rescue" dog is doing alot better lately.

He still has certain trust issues but today I walked by him in the hall and he didn't lower his head.

He used to cower completely into a crouch on the floor. He would just freak out if you passed him in the hall.

Then, he got better and would stay up on all fours but lower his head real low in submission.

Today he kept his head high and just wagged his tail. So he's showing great strides!
