Victor's bad day started with a good night turned wrong...
See, I was so excited, because there were all of these people over and most of them like to pet me, and there is the guy who has the best feet. After they left, I got to run outside in the back yard. I love running. There are birds sometimes and moles and other animals. I love to try to get them all.
My favorite-est animals are cats. I live with a cat, but she is always hissing. It is funny and I am going to be her best friend. So, I saw this cat and I wanted to be friends. She was a really interesting cat with a strange purring sound and these racing stripes. I thought that would make her fast, but she kind of waddles. She didn't like it when I came up to investigate.
Bam! Right in the face. I was all right and the smell was mostly interesting, so I was going to try to introduce myself again when Momma came out and called my name. That made me pause, but the cat was much more interesting. Momma was by the side of the house and she told me to leave it. I hate leaving cats, but I love treats more. I came running up to the house and Momma said I smelled.
She wiped my face off with paper towels and they sprayed the couches with this stinky spray and went to bed leaving me downstairs! I hate being downstairs by myself all night. Last night was bad.
But the morning looked much better. I was outside for a long time while Momma and Daddy opened windows and put in the fans again and used a lot of nice smelling spray. Momma left the house for hours and shortly after she came home my day went from OK to horrid.
I got a bath! I was outside with a leash on and no treats in sight (normally Daddy has the treat, which makes bathtime OK). It was worse than a normal bath, because it was like two baths! First Momma washed me with a sponge and the soapy peroxide thing. She kept stopping me from shaking it all off. Then there was the hose. I don't like getting rinsed, but I thought I was done. No! She made me stay there while she got out the funny shampoo and washed me and washed me and washed me. I was out there forever! She eventually rinsed me again and then we went inside and played with a towel. I got all wiped and got to shake. Shaking is awesome!
But still no treat.
Wait, wait. She's getting up. She didn't forget. Nope, nope! TREAT!
