This week I performed at assisted living and memory care facilities. I love greeting each senior. They pet me, sometimes feed me a treat, and then enjoy my tricks. We performed tales from Africa. I play a poor dog who begs for food, but the rich man refuses to even give me a treat. How rude! The stories are fun and are filled with strange and exotic animals. Lions, tigers, spiders, and galagos (bush babies). The galagos sound like a crying baby when it senses danger. They have large eyes and ears and feast on insects. There are many African myths and legends regarding these nocturnal bush-babies.
I also got into trouble this week, but I don’t feel it was really my fault. Now that summer is almost over, we’re not as busy doing programs. I’m bored. I need to work, and if my upright doesn’t provide me with work, I’ll create my own!
So this week, I stole all of the covers off my upright’s bed after she made it. I dragged the blanket and comforter down the hallway, then bunched them up to create a cushy spot for myself. I thought I was helping her put clean sheets and blankets on her bed. I also found some dog treats that had been left in a jacket pocket. I ate a hole in the jacket and devoured the treats. They still tasted good, even though they were pretty old. I chased the cat; the cat chased me. Clearly, this is not my fault. I’m an innocent participant. The cat stares at me until I feel compelled to chase her.
Then, I dug a hole in the yard. In my defense, the yard has become overrun with vicious vile Voles. Voles consume the roots of your plants such as bushes, flowers, and grass. I wanted to teach the vile vole a lesson. They kept popping their heads out of their holes, driving me crazy until I caught one. I don’t particularly enjoy playing with a ball, but I love tossing a vole high into the air and then catching it! I call this game “Flying Vole” and look forward to playing it again. The voles, however, do not enjoy this game, which is why I had to dig a hole in the backyard. I just wanted to play “Flying Vole!”
