Hello from your good friend Lisi! It's been a very long while since I was able to share a bit about my life! I would have a visit with you more often, but really, my life is pretty much the same every day. I wait by the bedroom door of the Big Lady that yells but loves me anyway. She comes out very early and lets me outside to eat and do my business. Then I come inside and lie on a spot on the wood floor for ten minutes or hours or whatever it is. I'm a dog so I don't have much sense of time. Then it's breakfast time! I always get a bit of freshly-made kefir because the nice Big Guy thinks my ears don't smell as bad when I have it. Then I hope for a bit of toast and then it is time for a big sleep. I pretty much sleep or wander around the yard and hopefully get a nice walk or two each day. And that's my day for ya. Pretty boring but wonderful if you ask me.
Today was a different kind of day! I got to go to the big city! I rode in the back of the big truck with the window open and could see miles and miles of cars. People like to wave and make faces at me. I know they do this because they love me. Who wouldn't with a face like mine?
We got into the city and we walked to the lakefront. The Big Lady that yells but loves me anyway knew I would want a swim and a big drink from Lake Michigan so that's the first place we went. Thank goodness Big Lady is nice. It was a hot day!
We walked a long time and then finally we stopped at this place that serves food. I heard the nice Big Guy tell a lady since there was a dog we should eat out on the deck. Imagine that! I have good manners don't I? The good thing is as soon as this man came over to our table he asked, 'should I get the dog some water?' And soon he came with a nice dog dish full of ice water for me! That's five-bone treatment right there! So I laid there and waited for morsels to fall from my master's table. Thankfully I got a taste of some pizza. They're so good to me.
Soon we hit the hot pavement again. It was delightful to sniff all these new places and have complete strangers come up to me to tell me I was pretty. They don't need to say that because I hear that all the time from the Big Lady that yells but loves me anyway. She does call me 'Grandma' some days too. I'd be more upset but she says it in such a sweet way I can't help but love her. Here we are under a huge bridge with cars roaring over us. I don't get nervous because I know the Big Guy always has my back.
Until next time! Now it is time for me to hit the dog bed and call it a day! Goodnight!
