Then there are the real weather dogs, like Otis. our pup of the week trapped in his cellar while tornado monsters roar over his head. I have never been to a tornado monster nor do I want to go to one. They scare the Vick out of me. And they never land where they should, like Washington DC, where they actually could do a lot of good because there is a bunch of stuff there that needs to be sucked up and thrown away. I am asking Otis this week, for he is quite the affable chap, to accept this award for all our friends who have been pounded by what some bipeds call Mother Nature but what I believe to be discarded vacuum cleaners reanimated.
We are thankful that Otis had a nice basement to be safe in. Their home and property were not damaged. But there were pups near by who had their whole houses torn away and are now all living in shelters. Do you know how hard it is to get a fully grown slope nosed adopted after they lose their home to the tornado monsters? We wish them the best of luck.
As Otis said there is no place better then a basement when there is a tornado. It is where smart humans take their pups. We no longer have a basement. We have a skirt. Somehow I don't think something called a skirt will give the same level of protection as a basement. I live with dumb humans.
Bear watched over his sweet Mom from the Bridge and kept her safe from the tornado monsters but not all of us have a strong dog like Bear looking over for us who scare the monsters.
Then there are Sydney, Moose and Buddy who winter just won't leave alone. We are late in the month of April and they are still getting snow. While snow isn't as dangerous as the tornado monster it just wears your down mentally. Everyone wants an endless summer but no one wants an endless winter.
The tornado monster touched down close to our besties Saffron and Sage. But you know Miss Jackie would battle to the death any monster that threatened her babies. Cute little Gracie Mae is also in that state but her Mom is still cracking bad jokes on the Human Book so she must be all right.
Nothing beats those tornado monsters away like bad humor.
And poor Chelsea and Ashton, they are suffering from the "midway through a Democratic Presidency someone sets Texas on fire" storms. They can see and smell the fire but for now are safe.
Smoochy got stuck in a basement like Otis as he protected his Mom from terrible weather and tornado monsters. Sierra and Nase slept through their tornado warning but I don't think a tornado is any match for a blob. And we can't forget Jen and her friends down in Brazil who was hit with massive flooding.
Storms just continue to churn around us and it is only April. I hope the weather calms down but the tornado monsters seem to thrive in the summer so everyone get down in their basement and hold on, just like our pup of the week, Otis did. Meanwhile Pocket and I will be holding on to a skirt and hoping for the best.
