A Puppy's Work Is Never Done

My human cried for her country yesterday.  It bothered me a lot, but it was even worse when she got home and seemed even sadder than she had been in the morning.  Shasta said she was exhausted and that she needs a break.  It really worried me.

She went to bed at like 8:30 last night and that really made me wonder if she was ok.  I really really love my human and can’t imagine her not being around.  I decided she needed some comforting.  I started to whine, whimper and rattle my crate.  She needed me even if she didn’t know it yet.

She told me to be quiet a couple of times, but I continued.  Finally she got up and let me and Shasta out of our crates.  When she climbed back into bed, we jumped up and began to snuggle with her.  Eventually she began to laugh as we insisted on being petted.  Then with a smile on her face and happy tears in her eyes she said, “It’s impossible to remain negative with so much love in my life.  Everything is going to be just fine.”

Puppy job 1 is complete.  Now to find the people who made her cry in the first place and start biting some bums.

I Will Help, Will You?

I hate it when my human cries.  I feel so helpless and lost when she’s sad.  She cried this morning and there was nothing I could do to help her.  I was going to get the ball and cheer her up with a game of fetch, but Shasta said I shouldn’t because it wouldn’t help.  Then I listened very carefully as she explained just why she was crying.

I get it now.  She loves her country so much and she doesn’t think it will survive.  She is afraid she’ll never get it back.  I think it’s sort of how I felt when she left me at that place a few weeks ago.  I was really scared I would never see her again. 

I have decided that I’m going to pay more attention to her lessons every day.  I’m going to be like my sister, Shasta, and help my human keep her country free.  I know I’m just a puppy but like she tells me every day…”Every little bit helps, Patton!”   I know I can help.

If we all pitch in just a little, we can make a difference.  Will you help me help my human keep the America she loves alive?

Are There More Bad People?

It’s a confusing time for puppies like me.  My human constantly makes me watch things on that TV thingy that make no sense.  And I don’t understand why people think about only one part of something and not the whole thing. 

One thing that I had to see really upset me.  It was that Sandusky person.  I understand he was a really bad man and that he is going to jail for a really long time for hurting those little boys, but it was that woman who scared me.  You know, the one they called something General?  Anyway, she said how they were still investigating and that there may be more people charged with some things.  Candi told me that she thinks the Sandusky man wasn’t the only doing bad things to little boys.  She also said that we’re going to see a lot more victims come forward and that it is going to be one of the biggest tragedies in American history that was not caused by a natural disaster.  That is really scary to a little boy puppy like me.  It can’t be a good thing for Sandusky to be the ONLY ONE convicted so far, can it?

We were watching the social networks on Friday night when the verdict was announced.  People were posting all kinds of stuff about that man but no one was talking about what that woman said.  No one said anything about them investigating other people.  It’s so confusing.  We are glad that one bad man is off the street, but what about the others?  I’m not sure, but I think that Candi might be right about there being more than one person that did REALLY bad things. 

Candi says that I should pray for the little boys and their families.  She says that I should pray for that Sandusky man’s family, too.  I think I’ll pray for them today and I’ll ask God to send angels to comfort the ones that got hurt.  I’m sure they are just as confused as me.  And I’m not just doing it for extra treats.  I’m doing it because Shasta says it’s the right thing to do and I want to do the right thing.
