Don’t get us wrong. We do like a good movie. But not at some weird, unearthly hour. A pup’s sleep-time always comes first.
Anyway, on such nights we bunk here. See, we make sure we leave enough space for Mummy and Daddy to curl up.
What do you mean there isn’t enough leg-space!!
It is winter, isn’t it? You are supposed to curl up nose-tip to tail-tip…errr…toe-tip!
And of course, we don't mind lending our beds to Mummy & Daddy, if they want them! They are almost new!
Tonight, however, space isn’t an issue.
Well, Daddy is gone AGAIN!
Yes, he has deserted us to go on another trip.
This time, it is to a place near Bangalore, further down south of where we live.
We don’t like it. Not one bit.
( Don’t go, Daddy, Please?)
(May be I can fit in there and come along too?)
( I will fit in. Please take me along?)
Mummy says he has been invited to be the External Examiner for the Final MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery) Examination in a medical College there. He will be busy the entire day and can’t take us Pups along.
And that it is an honour and will add an extra feather on Daddy’s cap.
Daddy has deserted us to go collect feathers?
Why, we could have done it for him. Collect feathers, that is.
We are Retrievers, if you remember. Besides, we even have Shadow trained to retrieve things and he does it with pawfect finesse.
(Note to self by Ginger: We must get Mummy to video-graph his training sessions with Buddy)
Anyway, Daddy is gone and he will be gone for a WEEK!
Mississippi One… Mississippi Two… Mississippi Three…
