My People Made me Sad - by Phod

Dear Blogville,

You know I am usually a happy boy who doesn't like to complain, but my people have made me sad.
It started 87 million years ago when I cut my foot.
They made me wear a sock, they put spray on it (that I hated and it smelled bad), they shoved a pill down my throat, they didn't let me play ball a thousand times a day, and I took all of this without complaining. However, they have crossed the line.

I have evidence that they have been doing this without me:

That's right, they have been going to the beach swimming without me. I know because I can smell the lake on them and their things.

Look at the beach stuff
They say they are allowed to do things without us and my foot isn't 100% better yet and it is not restful to go to the beach with Hailey. I think I must have done something bad and they are punishing me. I am very sad. (I will keep looking sad and soon Lady will feel bad and she will take me. I am getting lots of practice making sad eyes).

Do your people do things that make you sad?


  1. Isn't that abuse! Neglect? We bet they are not feeding you either....

  2. Oh sweetie, I hate to say it, but Lady really is looking out for your best interest. If that footie got bad infections in it, you would be far worse off. Hang in there, hopefully the footie will be better soon and you will be back out at the lake with your fam. :-)

  3. Awwww, you're so sad now we are sad too. I think maybe it's a good thing in disguise as a bad thing. It will pass soon and you'll be back to swimming in no time. In the meantime, keep working the sad face and try to get extra treats!!!!!

  4. That is just terrible! How you must be suffering! Now they should take you someplace special.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  5. Unfortunately we are offenders too, Boomer and Dottie are never happy when we leave them and come back after a good long hike with all sorts of new sniffs they didn't get to have.

  6. When Tucker broke his toenail, he had to walk on the leash--even when his brother and sister ran around the yard without one. It was horrible. At least he didn't have to wear the Cone of Shame. We feel for you. Get better soon!

  7. hopefully you will be able to go back in the water soon! Don't feel bad, my humans do stuff EVERY DAY to make me sad! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  8. Aww!!! They are just trying to do whats best for you! And yes, my huskies get mad at me sometimes when I do things without them. I will come home, they smell the crap outta me, and then look extremely upset that they didn't come along!!!

  9. It's just not right that they go to the beach without them. I think you should ground them from the beach until you are better.

    Aroo to you,

  10. Phod, say it isn't so?!? How could they sneak off to the lake without you and then come home smelling of lake? Do they think that you cannot smell it on them?!? Keep up the sad eyes...I am sure it will work soon and they will take you with them.

  11. THIS is a NIGHT SQUIRREL... a HORRID one... This abuse can NOT be allowed to continue...
    Excuses... they make these SILLY Excuses fur torturing us in these ways.
    WE are SOOOOOOOO sorry. Do you want us to come and Pee in their SHOES while they are out in the water??? We will.... ALL of Blogville will join forces and
    UNLEASH OUR PEE SHOOTERS if THEY don't come to their senses... INSTANTLY... just let us know.

  12. Happens to all of us. But what REALLY makes us crazy is they THINK we won't know where they've been, when we can smell their whole excursion on them!

    We hope your foot gets better quickly, so they can't use that as an excuse anymore.

  13. Poor baby...sometimes pawrents THINK they are doing what is best for us. Obviously they should have stayed home and fed you treats until your sock comes off!!

  14. Oh no paw you!! I too get the 'it's for your own good' lie. Hope they knock it off soon!
