We got my new stroller yesterday afternoon. Grampster brought it in the house folded up. I found an open flap and climbed in before mama could set the stroller up and push it into the living room.
Once the stroller was in the living room, mama got some treats and threw some of my favorite toys into the stroller. The back was open, and I dived right in after the toys. Mama started feeding me my favorite treats, making me come out of the stroller and follow her around the house, then go back and jump into the stroller on "command." She thinks I was obeying her commands; silly mama. I did jump in and out of the stroller, but it was only a fun game for me. Then mama started feeding me treats from the front so I would go WAY far into the stroller and look ahead. After a little while mama took the brake off and started moving the stroller REAL slow with me in it. I could have told her I would not be afraid. After all, I like to leap on her steno chair and make it spin around and around until mama says she gets dizzy just watching me. All the while I just there watching things spin around. I always knew the world revolved around me. MOL. I stayed in the stroller even though I was not zipped in. We went out into the kitchen and turned around real slow. We did a few trips around the house, and mama fed me more treats. I had to make mama think I was just a teensy bit nervous to make sure I got plenty of treats. Mama gave me a rest and then later we did the getting in and out of the stroller again. This time mama put the back flap down and wheeled me around the house. I didn't cry or try to get out.
This morning we did the getting in and out of the stroller for treats again. Mama was having a hard time getting me to get out of the stroller. I thought I should stay there, and she could feed me treats all day long. Today mama put the back flap down like I was zipped into the stroller, and we wheeled around the house at almost a normal walking speed. I thought it was pretty cool. More treats, mama! More treats, and I will ride in the stroller all day.
Later I got my harness on to practice wearing it. I don't really mind it, but I always think I can't jump when I first get it on. Mama threw a treat in and got me to jump into my stroller wearing my harness. She said that was a mistake because later she found me on top of the miniature log cabin my grampster made for mama. I looked like a giant panther on the roof, and I could see out the window real good. ;) Course, mama yelled and made me jump down. I did it a few more times and got yelled at, but then I got too tired to be naughty anymore.
I helped mama put clean sheets on the bed. I am VERY good at bed making. Just ask mama; she will tell you all about it.
The sticky duck tape is still on the phone table, and I have not tried to leap onto the armoire. Just in case, mama put a rope basket where the very breakable vase was and put the vase WAY UP HIGH where even I catnot reach it. I guess you could say I am an interior decorator now too. I am helping mama find the most pleasing (and safe) arrangement for her stuff.
Hey, how bout that hocky score? Will we have another miracle on ice?
Hey Gunnar! Can't wait to see pictures of you strolling. I think I would have loved it too but mom gave away the stroller which was Wally's.
And guess what? She just bought a computer armoire cause I cannot stay away from the computer. MOL
Hey, Milo. Were you the "virus" infecting your mama's computer not too long ago? ;)
Gunnarr T. ~ Sounds like you are really going to enjoy strolling with your mama. Can't wait to see pictures.
