Adventures of Orthos
There is a shrew at large in our living room. You would think the two cats my mum has would take care of the situation, and having a shrew in the living room ,where two cats live…is a SITUATION! It started out by the vacuum cleaner and I’ll give a paw up where it is due. Mr. Tom narrowed down where the thing was hiding, BUT he did nothing about it. It was me that had to push the kids chairs out of the way, the ladder and finally mum moved the vacuum for me. Miss LuLu sat there like a statue and watched it run pass her. This Mr. Tom, fierce survivalist “I have lived out in the wild almost all my life” allowed that shrew to run across his paws! Can you believe that?
My mum yelled at me when I grabbed LuLu and threw her at the shrew. Folks, what else is a dog to do? If you’re wondering is my side kick Buck was at my side, the answer is no. His lazy mixed breed butt was snuggled up in bed with my dad. I am a protection dog. I pride myself on making sure my family is safe. I swear I am living with Scooby-doo times 3! These 3 are not even remotely interested in helping me with security detail. Not in the least.
Now I have to keep circling the couch until everyone wakes up and mum will move it for me. I know I’ll get into trouble for rearranging the furniture. I will circle the couch and since I have the cats trapped under the tree, I’ll circle back by them too and give them my “I dare you to come out” look.
This is war!!! The only things the other animals are interested in securing are Mr. Tom whines about food, Miss LuLu secures her sleep & Buck, well he is only into securing his next snuggle hostage. I say hostage because he will pin a person down to love them to death. They are untrain-able animals, I have no use for them.
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy! I know who would love to help me and do major shrew damage. Minnie the duck and her gang of chickens.
*Note to self – when mum and I go out to feed the chickens and ducks I will free them, and bring them in the house. FREEEEEEEDOMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!
