“Mom left me again.” Buddy wags his tail. “Where’s she going? I could have stayed in the back seat. I want to hang my head out thewindow…..Now I’m with
Jake and Buster.”
Buddy turns his head. Jake and Buster have a pull toy. They are tugging trying to pull it away. Buddy turns back to see if Mom is coming back yet. Buddy lays down and barks.
“This works in the back yard” He wags his tail a little.
Jake comes over and drops the pull toy on his back. Then runs to the fence post to pee.
“Jake, class act…all the way!” Buddy rollls his eyes.
“Buddy, she isn’t coming. Get over there and play. You’ll feel better. You know you can’t relay on people. Them and their kids….it’s all about taking time away from us. I mean can a kid fetch anything? They are useless. Ok, they feed us their food. But what’s that worth? They aren’t eating it anyway.”
“Whatever! She’ll be back for me! She likes me. I’m a rescue.” Buddy keeps his vigil going.
“Hey, maybe she’ll liter box train you too. You sound like a cat! Get a hold of yourself! You’re a dog! Act like one! ” Jake grabs the pull toy and runs off.
“Ooooohhhh, she had to come back. Wait, did he just call me a cat?! That son of a bitch!” Buddy runs off to catch Jake. He’ll show him which one is like a cat.
