SNOOPY DOG...by b. Malin
A DOG STORY...FOR PEOPLE
Hi Everybody, My name is "Snoopy". Before I start my story, which I could have called my Tale, (Tail) Ha, Ha, Get it? I've got to tell you, that I'm So Vain...Carly Simon probably wrote that Song about me...Eat your Heart out Mick Jagger. Anyway, How do you think I look Best...with, or without my READING Glasses? Please let me know when you leave a Comment for b. Malin to read. Then she can let me know, for I am her Dog, her Companion, of about 25 years...I know (sigh) I know, I look SO YOUNG. Now for "Our" story...
b. Malin's friend "Harold" brought me into her life because of a Good Deed...She went Shopping with him at "Macy's", to help him buy a Gift, for his then future wife. I was an Extra added Treat if a certain amount was spent. Ok, Ok, Honestly, I cost $5.00. Harold bought me for b. Malin. It was LOVE at first sight for ME, and I am still with b. Malin...Still Crazy for her. Harold, who did eventually marry, is no longer married to that woman, AND, Harold is Dead...He passed away a few years back. I know, Sad. I don't get that emotional, I'm a Dog, but it was Sad.
b. Malin eventually married "Lover Man"...I humbly accepted 2nd place. I used to sit upon her bed, but after the marriage, I was put in the "Guest Room" on the sofa bed. It was ok, I still had Good Hearing, and didn't miss out on ANYTHING.........Oh fill in the Blanks Folks, Fill in the Blanks. Now if you've taken your minds out of the GUTTER, I shall continue. Just remember, she is my Mistress. Wow, that sounds kinda of kinky. Ok, on with the story...
The Happy Couple bought a "Condo", it was nice. I still lived in the Den, but it was ok, it had a TV, and when they weren't home, I'd turn it on and watch 60 minutes...What? you thought I'd say "Lassie" or some Dog Movie. PLEASE DON'T STEREOTYPE ME. There were "Happy Times" and there were some "Sad Times"...
b. Malin's Niece, the Artist died by her own choice of death...and b. Malin held me close on many a night, and just let the tears flow, Lover Man sat beside us, and held us close. That was the worst of times...The very worst of Times.
Happy times...so many...the Birth of Grandchildren, and watching them grow...that was Special...Moving to a House...NO, I still didn't get back into the Bedroom... The "Secret Room in the House"...That's where I stayed. The Grandkids would play with me when they came to visit. By this time, I'd lost my Hat & Scarf...b. Malin and I never cared for them anyway.
Then, a few years back we moved again, it was called "Downsizing". The house was smaller, and I was now to live in the added on Sun Porch. Oh it's Beautiful, with so many Windows to look out of...I sit in a Rocking Chair...I now need Reading Glasses...So does b. Malin. I think Lover Man is BLIND without his Glasses...Or is it just wishful thinking...Just Doggie Kidding. He's ok, he's grown on me. Now, are you ready for this? I just HEARD that we are going to be Moving AGAIN, this time to FLORIDA! I'd heard about the Condo w/the View...And b. Malin said she was taking ME there this winter. Of course I'm excited...And I don't care where I'm going to sit. It's just all SO Exciting! They want to sell the house in NJ next Spring, so I'm NEVER coming back. Excuse me while I Pant...We Dogs do that when we're Happy. Ok, I'm done PANTING... So, tell me now, How do I look? You could be Honest...I won't BITE you...I can't. Bet you thought I'd say, "cause I Haven't got Any Teeth"! Well maybe in my Next Life... But I'm not leaving b. Malin anytime soon...And hey, b. Don't forget to pack the Suntan Lotion. "BARK, BARK... THAT'S ALL FOLKS".
