I'm sad that we make better enemies than friends. Our relationship has been a bit strained for a while now, but you really did us in the other day. You run away from me now because you think that I am going to force you to take another bath.I'm sorry about that. I had set out to clean the house once upon a time and you decided to dig the biggest hole ever next to the house. You came in caked in mud and tracked it all over the house. I agree it isn't your fault that we picked a house with white carpet, but if you could try to not create more work for me that would be greatly appreciated.
I give you a cool house to lounge around in with plenty of water so I see no need for digging. If you are bored I could think of a few things you could do around the house. I carry treats around and try to coax you into making better choices around me including liking me again. I think you appreciated your cleanliness after the shower so why are you so mad at me? I see you sleeping so sweetly and I can't help but love you. Then I find bits and pieces of the baby's toys everywhere that you have chewed up and I am annoyed once again no matter how cute you are.
This is probably not the last plea for change, but I promise to keep trying with you. I am grateful to be going on my first little vacation without you. You and I need some time apart to learn to appreciate each other more. The baby and I have not been able to leave the house since we got you, but we have finally found a good home with a friend for you to play with while your lover is at work. I hope things can be different when we get back. I know the baby will miss you tons. I will let you know how I feel when I get back.
