Woeful Wednesday; It's just not my week...


Hey pals... Brutus here.

You ever have one of those weeks? Boy, is this one mine. *sigh*

First, Mom goes to work like 3 days (almost in a row!!), so I get stuck in my crate. Mason taunts me with all kinds of stuffies, since he gets free run of the house no matter what. Then we get these blizzards... Yikes! Snow up over my back - at least Mason makes poop chutes for me... And now I get the worst news of all: a suitcase appeared!

Seems that mom "has" to go to Arizona for some kind of dental conference. Whatever. It was one of my earliest, so most of you probably don't remember the post the last time mom abandoned me for teeth. My little ploy to go along totally backfired.

OK, ears gave me away last time. Need a new plan.

I'll hide UNDER her clothes!!


Wait - you say you are flying?? No cargo hold for me!!

So I'll do the last thing I can think of, place my compact, bulky self on top of the suitcase and keep her from moving it!

Or at least look so pitiful she can't bear to....

Never fear, followers, this Frenchie is tough and will endure. Dad is home here with me, and grandpa (mom's dad) is going to pick me up during the day and take me to play with my Aunt Maggie (the greyhound). Guess I have to suck up to them and make the best of things. Mason even promised to try and keep me distracted with some good games of bitey-face.

Wish me luck. Next week has GOT to be better!!

As I told your Mom on Facebook, I think she's a coward for leaving you in the snow while she goes off to sunny, warm Arizona. (Well, maybe I didn't say that, exactly, but I meant to!)You are tough, though, and I am sure you will survive your mother's abandonment. Good luck, and I can always send AirFiona for you, if you want a break. Oh. Wait. We've got the Puppy Monster here, maybe you want AirFiona to take you someplace else...

Oh Brutus, you're makin' my little puggie heart break! I wish I could come out there to keep you company while your mom is away. We all loves our moms a little extra special. But dad loves us too. Try not to be too sad. Too bad you can't come here when your mom goes out of town.. :(

Love,
Stella

Brutus I think you should pee in the suitcase. That would keep her home for sure. BUTT if she DOES go... maybe she will bring back some Arizona Sun. That would be an improvement. Right???
Okay, so you and Mason get to go to visit Grandpa and your cousin. They will be easy targets for your charms. I'm sure you will get to do and eat lots of cool stuff. I'm just sayin'.
Hey, I just thought of something else. Take all of HER stuff out and fill it up with your stuff. She would have to come home MUCH sooner. hehehe

No worries. It will get better.

Pearl said...

Aww Brutus! It really isn't your week, is it buddy?

You can come stay with me if you want!

I am sure the time will fly by and your mom will be back soon! I bet she hates leaving you just as much as you hate it!

Dude...this is NOT cool!

Be sure to take a nice steamy dump in her suitcase right before she zips it! The TSA people will think she's smuggling some kind of weapon of mass destruction and won't let her on the plane and she'll HAVE to come back to you!

It's foolproof! Try it!

Good luck man!

Love,
S-Dog

Benny and Lily said...

Ah Brutus..don't you just hate that suitcase. We have a feeling mom just wants to get out of the snow and into the sun. I wonder if she could bring some sunshine back for you? It sounds like you will have some fun play days.
Rrrrrrrrffff,
Benny & Lily

Aniemother said...

Good luck, Brutus! I employ the same sleep-on-the-suitcase-so-she-doesn't-forget-me strategy. Doesn't always work, though..

The OP Pack said...

So sorry for your woes, Brutus. We would love to take your snow for you but we don't know how to help you with the Mom traveling without you. But it does sound like between Dad, Grandpa and Aunt Maggie, you will do just fine. Hope the week flies by for you.

Sorry your week is so yucky! You sure dont want that cargo hold

Twinkietinydog said...

I hope my comment on FB yesterday helped a bit. Your last photo...I doubt anybody can leave you behind looking pathetic and pitiful like that, but it sounds like you have fun backup plans. Now go suck up to Mason.
Twink!

Martine said...

Dang it! Too bad your mom can't bring you with!

Sounds like fun though, to hang out with Aunt Maggie!!

Hi Brutus,
You have a real good name!! I like it a lot!!
We are friends of Rocky Creek Scotties, and they're are a lot of them today because they just had 9 puppies!!
Hope your Mom has a safe trip and coming home too. You sleep a lot and she will be home soon.
Have fun at G-pas

Bijou said...

Hi Brutus,

Sorry about getting left behind. It sounds like your mom will be busy with the toof conference so you'd just be bored anyway. Better to stay home and hope she brings you some treats or maybe a new toy.

Waggles,
Bijou

Tobi said...

Aw, sorry you can't go to Arizona with your mom but at least where she's going there is probably cold weather, maybe even snow and she's not going to the beach somewhere!

Dory and the Mama said...

Good Luck Brutus....I say play your Daddy...Daddy's don't usually know the routine and can be tricked into many treats during the course of the day!!

Your Mama will be back before you know it...maybe she will bring you Arizona treats!!

Smileys!
Dory

Jazzi said...

Oh Brutus
I can sympathize with you. I hate it when my mom leaves too, I mean it just isnt the same!! You will be fine and she will be home before you know it and yep, I bet you get some treats from Arizona, and that will be cool.

Hang in there!!
Jazzi

Maggie and Mitch said...

Maybe it won't be so bad with your dad and grandpa and Auntie Maggie, Brutus! We bet they have fun stuff planned for you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Tucker said...

Hey, sorry your Momma has to go away. But Momma's have to work so they can make that paper money to buy us kibbles.

woof - Tucker

Joe Stains said...

Oh NO I wish you could come because WE are in Arizona!!!

Sam said...

You poor boy, Brutus! Just hang in there - cratey time isn't so bad, and hopefully mom's trip with the suitcase won't be long at all. She'll be yours again before you know it!

Sonic said...

Poor Brutus!

It's okay... crate time really isn't so bad. When I'm in the crate, me and my big plushie crab get to... well... it's private. But it's fun.

PoochesForPeace said...

Eeeek, sorry Brutus. Maybe ur mom should play you the song"momma said there'd be days like this" to cheer you up!

Mack and Sally Ann said...

Brutus,
I'm sorry your Mommy is leaving you. I know you'll be loved and cared after. Mommy will be back very soon.

Hi, Brutus!
Sounds like you need this week to end soon!
Don't worry! You will be in good hands and I am sure you are going to have a nice time with Aunt Maggie!
I wish your mom a nice and safe trip!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Audrey the Photographer Dog said...

Poor guy. Next week will be better for sure! She loves you so much and will be back soon.

Tiffany and the Munchkins said...

Oh Brutus, we are sorry you aren't have the best week. We don't like it when the Mommy leaves us either, although she hasn't done that in a long time (since Bentley was a puppy and before Lexus was even born). But we don't like it even while she is gone for just a few hours. But we are certain that the Daddy, the grandpa, and the aunt will take furry good care of you!

Chihuahua kisses,
The Munchkins

Maybe you'll get some sympathy nummies while Mom is gone? The Mr. usually orders pizza when she's out of town.

sniffies,

I hope you have a great time with your Aunt Maggie. Give your mom person lots of sad faces & maybe she will bring you pressies!
