Charlie Bear here.
Mom Peep up and walked out the door the other night, leaving me alone with Dad. Huh. Where in the heck was she going? She usually stays in, makes a salad and something else for the two of them, feeds me, gives me a treat in the garage while she rides her exercise bike, and all is well in my world.
Instead, the sky turned dark and the lights came on and still she wasn’t home. Where in the world had she gone?
I found out she went to dinner with two of her girlfriends, Merrie and Andrea. They went to Cheesecake Factory and had chicken with pasta and tall glasses of ice water. And they talked and talked and talked. Oh, and they laughed…loud and giggly and head-turning kind of laughing. I guess they had a great time together ’cause it was three hours later before she came home.
Mom needs her lady friends. Oh, she needs me and Dad, but she needs women friends too.
Like me and Rex needed each other. P.S. I miss him, which is why I think it’s great that Mom Peep has friends and they do things together. It’s comforting, don’t you think? Like these guys:
So the next time you feel left out, think of it this way….it’s good for all of you. A Happy Mom Peep is wonderful around here. And me? I’m going to cuddle up to both Mom and Dad more often so they both know I’m their bestest friend.
How about you?
