Napping in Daddy's Lap
I had a wonderful day yesterday! I had Daddy home all day and he took me out for many romps in the snow! I love snow! It is delicious and slippery and feels so good on my back when I roll and wiggle in it. I love a good stick that is frozen and covered in snow. I love pine cones that are frozen and covered in snow (Mom calls them cigars - silly mommy). I like to see how many things I can carry at a time. I have been known to manage three sticks, but three pine cones is much more difficult. A stick and a pine cone, or two pine cones, but three is just too many for this retriever.
Last night, Daddy and Mommy were moving furniture and boxes and taking things up and down. I don't really know what they were up to, but when they were done last night, the kitchen was empty, and my bowls were in the bedroom....hmmmmm. I have never head breakfast in bed before!
Bed is one of my favorite places.
Daddy likes to cook when he is home, so he made some delicious treats and of course I got to taste everything. Baked Ziti (hope I spelled that right) was a new and delicious treat I have never experienced before. Mommy will be so happy when she comes home and tries it. I wonder if she has ever eaten it before.
Daddy also likes to give me tastes of this wiggly, cool, fruity thing he calls jello. I am not really sure how to eat it so I let is slide down my tongue and enjoy the fruity coolness. I actually prefer ice cubes but I wouldn't want Daddy to feel bad.
Daddy slept in his chair and I stayed near him on the couch. We had a lovely long nap. Sometimes when he sits in his chair he lifts me up on his lap and tells me I am fat. I am NOT fat. Everyone knows Goldies are big boned... I can sit in his lap and watch TV, but mostly I like to play fight with Daddy. He wiggles his fingers and I wrinkle up my nose like a fierce mountain wolf. He goes to tap me on the nose and I try and grab him with my mouth. I try to be gentle. I never want to hurt my daddy. So I grab him and let go, grab him and let go, and he wiggles and taps and we laugh and carry on until we are ready to nap again.
