11/16 Dear Kirby

Joe and Cindy's dog, Kirby, spent some time alone at my house. I didn't think that he'd be able to get through the broken baby gate that keeps Gussie in the kitchen. When my sister Jan and I got to my house after a fun get-together at Joe and Cindy's we noticed my curtain was gone from my front window. At first I said, "Oh, that darn cat." But then I remembered she can't climb curtains anymore because of having her front claws removed.

Then we noticed the gate was down and lots of papers strewn about in the dining room. I started laughing and couldn't stop. Kirby had gotten into many of my shopping finds that I'd left on the dining room table. Among those finds were two bags holding about 15-20 "homemade" dog treats that I'd bought at a holiday gift show. Some of those treats were for Kirby anyway, but he just helped himself to all of them. (I think Joe said that Kirby had gotten sick when he got home. I was laughing so hard I don't know if that's what he really said, I couldn't hear him.)

My only fear is that Joe and Cindy won't let Kirby come over anymore. And I don't want that to happen. Omigod, it was good for a laugh. I love that dog.

Kirby truly is very SORRY....Not that he ate the doggie treats, as he would feel that was worth being in trouble for. I knew he KNEW what he did wrong the minute Jer held up the bag on her table to show me where the treats were and Kirby went and coward in the doorway to get outside! He is so smart, but FOOD is his much like ME! Thanks for not being mad at him Jer. We will get your curtain rod all fixed up later in the week.

No harm done. You know I love Kirby. Thanks a million for replacing the doggy Christmas treats. :)

I always feel bad when I'm with a dog who is precious, but who has problems. You wonder how someone could be so sick as to mistreat one of God's best creatures--all dogs really want to do is make us humans happy.
