The reason Mom went away was so she could go to this thing called "Art Unleashed." What it was was a way to make money for the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City. The Humane Society needs lots of money because it is expensive to save homeless animals. Since I was homeless once myself, I know it is important to save the animals, but sometimes I wish Mom would stay home and play with us more!
Well anyway, at Art Unleashed, people donate artwork and then other people bid money, and whoever bids the most gets to buy it. Mom bought some artwork at Art Unleashed, but she could not buy a whole bunch of it because she had to save some money to pay for my surgery. Here is what Mom bought:
As you can see, it is a photo of a cute black-and-white dog. Mom said it reminded her of me. She also bid on a photo of a dog that looked like my brother Barry, but she did not get that one. Mom found out that the dog in the photo is part Boston terrier and part blue heeler. It is too bad the dog is not a basenji, but it is still a cute dog.
Mom spends a lot of time helping the homeless dogs at the Humane Society. She goes there on Mondays and Wednesdays to socialize them. This is just a fancy way of saying that she plays with them! Mom is also on the board of the Humane Society. This means she sometimes has to go to meetings. Since she is the secretary, she has to stay awake during the meetings and take notes about whatever is happening. Then she has to write up a report sort of thingy and send it to the other board members so that anybody who fell asleep during the meeting will know what they missed out on.
If you want a nice dog or cat to live in your house with you, you should go to the Humane Society and adopt one. Your new pet will love you forever because you gave it a home. And don't forget to feed your pet every day and take your dog for walks so it can eat cicadas or maybe a piece of pizza, which is what Barry found today when he and Mel went walking with Mom. You don't have to give your dog baths, though, because baths are icky. I know this because Mom gave me one yesterday. Ick! Ick! Ick! It was so awful that I don't even want to talk about it!
Well, that's all for today. Bye!
