What will he do next?

Today the sun came out after a couple of days filled with clouds and rain.  I am grateful for the rain as we needed the moisture but am EXCITED about the sunshine.  I always feel so much better when the sun shines.

Okay, back to the reason for this story.  I had taken a few minutes away from the kitchen to check my e-mail.  Of course, Al (AKA Alvin) followed me upstairs to the office.  Oh, by the way as his name is so close to my grand-puppy Elton’s name, I decided to shorten Alvin to AL.  He seems like an AL.  I will reserve the right to call him AL VINNNNNNN when the need arises.

In the office (sitting at the computer) ….. he was patient for a few minutes and then started “biting and nipping”  at my pants, feet, the computer chair.  That is always the sign to shut off the computer and go downstairs.  I put it out there to the UNIVERSE, I WISH THAT YOU COULD TALK AL, and LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU NEED TO GO OUTSIDE.  PERHAPS A GENTLE NUDGE with his PAW ON MY LEG .  A girl can dream, right !!!

So of course, I turned off the computer a few minutes later.  LOL. No, I am NOT THE PACK LEADER.  I have no illusions at all!!   LOL

When downstairs, I opened the back door but Al didn’t wish to go out.  So I decided to watch a bit of television.  After about two minutes, actually more like twenty seconds …… guess who was back for attention,or something.  But this time, he came up to me and put his paw gently on my leg and gave me this look.  No biting.  No nipping.  No pulling off of Mom’s pants.   I was flabbergasted.  So I took him outside (he actually had to pee) 🙂

The moral of this story is:  when you think that no one is listening.  Think again!
