My Nanny Mad and Great Auntie Deirdre are finally here! I’ve been waiting my whole life to meet them. They are so much fun and brought me lots of presents over from England. Mommy and Daddy said Nanny Mad and Auntie Deirdre had to travel thousands of miles to see me. That’s pretty nice of them!
I’ve told you before that Lucy and I like to be in cahoots together. Well, on Nanny Mad’s first full day visiting me, Lucy and I decided to have a bit of fun with her. I was upstairs with Mommy taking a nap, when Nanny Mad walked in and asked how she might be able to get her shoe back from Lucy. Mommy asked if she was inside or outside, and she said she was outside. Mommy said she was afraid Nanny Mad might need to start saying her goodbyes to her shoe, because when Lucy is outside and has something she shouldn’t trying to get it back off her becomes the funnest game in the world as far as Lucy is concerned. We went outside anyway to see what we could do. Mommy managed to finally get the shoe by tempting Lucy with her very favorite and most forbidden thing of all – a rawhide chew. Lucy became distracted enough to leave the shoe to come beg for the rawhide (but as she only left the shoe and didn’t really exchange it fairly for the chew, she didn’t get the chew in the end). As expected, the shoe was demolished. There were only remnants of what had been, and between the bits of leather and strands of thread – as well as a bit of imagination – it was just possible to imagine what the shoe looked like in its glory days (i.e. that same day but 1/2 hour earlier).
So while Mommy was busy with Lucy Nanny Mad was holding me. We were having a great old time snuggling – she sitting on the deck and me being held up by her shoulder. Then I gave Lucy a quick wink to let her know the plan was in action, and I spit up all down the back of Nanny Mad. She felt it sliding down her back about the same time Mommy was showing her what was left of her shoe. Oh, it was hilarious! Lucy and I are planning our next double-team attack. Don’t tell! 🙂
