Today was that dreaded time of the month - you know the test strip for Fanconi day. Stormie always tried to outsmart me in this department and he dreads seeing the pee collection cup come out as much as I dread his "outsmarting" antics. Here's Stormie's Dogster diary entry for today and the adventure that ensued:
Spring Has Sprung (and other ramblings)
by: Stormie Basenji
Well, maybe - PA has a way of changing weather like I change my mind about where I like to potty. Today and yesterday have been downright GORGEOUS!! Splendid, superb, perfect! I love running in the warm sunshine! However I did hear rumblings of a cold snap headed our way for the week-end - ugh! I'm keeping my paws crossed that the cold air doesn't infiltrate the glorious warm days we've had!
So because it's so nice, the hooMom has been VERY generous in the exercise w/ pups department. Aside from the mud (and subsequent baths), it's been woofderful! Tonight the hooMom took Nik and I on a seperate run. She thought she was being sneaky, but I saw it! She was trying to "trickery" me. I saw her put the "pee cup" in her pocket on our way out the door. You know, the cup I dread seeing! It means that the hooMom is going to thoroughly disgrace me and collect my pee to check for Fanconi Syndrome. I tried my best to hold in my pee so she couldn't violate me, but with the sound of the river rushing in the background, it wasn't long until I was forced to lift my leg. HooMom pulled out the cup and before you know it my pee was collected - so VERY insulting! I saw the the smug look of satisfaction on her face that she'd "out-smarted me". Feeling generous, she then allowed me to run around for awhile and chase a stick or two, and then it was back home to collect Nik. I stopped to smell the weeds and faked the hooMom out - she thought I had to poo again, so she loosened her grip on the leash and let me have some freedom. Little did she know I had spied the evil, little Kermit balck and white stray cat in the weeds! Just like that - ZOOM! I was off after Kermit! HooMom was struggling to keep up and keep the pee cup steady and we zipped through the weeds after the cat! Finally she set the pee cup down and got me under control - then she realized that her hands were wet - HAHAHAHA! Yup, the pee cup leaked, and she had Stormie pee all over her hands! BOL! Paybacks really are, a well, female dog, aren't they dear readers?! That'll teach her to violate me!
Stormie - I showed her who's the boss, didn't I?!
