This morning, Mom got out this fancy, schmancy collar/leash thing that she bought for Cricket and put it on her. Cricket wasn't too sure if she liked the strap around her nose but Mom kept giving her little pieces of HOT DOGS and she didn't really complain much at all. Of course, I got right in there and got my fair share of HOT DOGS too ~ I wasn't going to let Cricket get them all, just because she had to wear that fancy, schmancy collar thing. But then....
Mom and the bag of HOT DOGS and Cricket went for a WALK. With OUT ME! I couldn't believe it. I think that I may still be in shock. Can you beLIEVE that? If that's not abuse, I don't know what IS.
Actually, I do know what is worse. Worse abuse is finding out that not only did they go for a walk (with the hot dogs) but Cricket actually got to go down by the creek and go SWIMMING! Any time that Bella and Sable and I sneak down to the creek to go swimming Mom gets MAD at us. But was she mad at Cricket? NO WAY!
Not only was Mom not MAD at Cricket...she even took PICTURES of her playing in the water! In fact, she even made a VIDEO! Talk about abuse!
I guess the "good" news is, Mom said that the reason she only took Cricket today was because she was trying out that fancy, schmancy collar ~ to see how it worked. I guess it can feel kind of weird and some dogs don't like it at first because they can't pull when they wear it. Mom decided not to take more than one dog today in case Cricket got scared and crazy or something. But she didn't .
Of course, I wouldn't either if I got to go SWIMMING!
Mom said that tomorrow it will be MY turn to try the fancy, schmancy collar ~ and go SWIMMING!!!
If Mom doesn't take me next, there's gonna be some real trouble in the Bluff Country...
Your abused and neglected Pal,
