Okay, most of you know that I was at the pawty. But what you didn’t know was that I sneaked away for just a little bits cuz I had a previous commitment.
See, the place where I go to school asked me if I wanted to come do a Rally demo for a thing they hold every year in honor of International Homeless Animals Day. It’s called Romp in the Park. (But the crazy thing is that they hold it in this big, HUGE barn-type of building – not a park at all.)
Anyways, I was kinda not sure cuz I was afraid I would gets stage fright. And sometimes places that are new with lots of activity skeer me pretty good still. But I figured it was awfully nice of them to ask so I thought I would gives it a try.
(Oh, and I have to say I’m sorry for the lack of pictures. Mom took the flashy beast but there was so much going on that she didn’t gets a chance to take hardly any at all. She was way too busy paying attention to me.)
Anyways, when we got there, there was lots of peoples and doggies and there was this thing that mom called a Pee-Ay system that was screaming at me. (I think they call it that cuz it skeers the pee outta you.) I asked mom if she had broughts any beer with her to calm my nerves but can you believe it? She didn’t have a single one on her! So I just had to dive right in without any liquid courage at all.
Oh, gosh, it was pretty nerve-wracking cuz there was lots of stuffs I had never seen before in my whole life. But I was real happy when I saw my teacher, Julie. And I told her I was nervous and she said that the demo had gotten pushed back about half an hour and that I didn’t HAVE to do it but why didn’t I just hang out and see if I could calm my nerves. I said that would be fine but wondered if maybe SHE had any beer. She didn’t. (Seriously, sometimes humans can be a teensy bit disappointing in this regard.)
We sat down but I was feeling antsy. So me and mom walked around for a little bit. And I saw these plastic pink flamingo birdies stuck in the ground and I bopped ’em with my nosie and made ’em move and I thought that was funny. And then I said hi to some other doggies and let some peoples pet me and mom kept feeding me chicken from this place called Chick-Phil-Ay. And well, I started to feel a lot better and decided to just lay down and take in the sights and “eat mor chicken” (haha). Mom thought this would be a good time to takes a coupla pictures but most unfortunately, they’re not the bestest.
Anyways, after abouts a day and a half an hour we found out that they had to CANCEL the Rally demo cuz they were running short on time. I think mom felt bad cuz she made me sit up there all that time and she was worried that she had traumatized me or something. But I told her that it was okay. That I had a pretty good time after all and while we were walking out, I did a lot of investigating and sniffing and I liked that a LOT. But she still seemed kinda worried so I told her if she wanted to make it up to me, she could take me to PetCo the next day.
And she DID! And while we were there, I saw one of these!
It’s called a Jenny Pig and I liked it almost as much as the chin-chilly-ah I saw at PetSmart. And the most ironic thing is that I have ALWAYS wanted a pig named Jenny! No, really, I have! But mom said no matter how bad she felt, she wasn’t going to get me one.
Seriously…the woman can be SO unreasonable sometimes!
Note from Unreasonable Mom: I wish I had the words to describe how proud I am of Mayzie. Six months ago, I never would have dreamed of even trying to take her to something like Romp in the Park. But she has come so far and it seems that every day, she does something to surprise and amaze me. She constantly inspires me with her willingness to trust, to try, and to never, ever give up. I am so blessed to have her in my life.
