Since that last fight several months ago, in May, Grammy has made it a rule that I am never to be allowed in the same open area as that “Absence of Light” or AOL dog!
I guess I really scared Grammy. I got pretty chewed up that time, and she still cries when she looks at the pictures. Actually I was hurt by Mercy who got mixed up and attacked me because Grammy was holding AOL down and yelling at ME to get back and no one else was home to help her.
(Grammy: For those who don’t know, OC is talking about Sadie, our Border Collie. OC has a MAJOR problem with her. She really brings out the “Green-eyed Jealousy Monster” in OC.
When in OC’s presence, AOL is the name we use because OC has a barking fit if we even say Sadie’s name out loud. OC is the one who attacks Sadie, who only fights to protect herself.)
Our house is built in a way that makes it fairly easy to keep that other dog out of MY area.
I usually have the bedrooms, hallway, and part of the living room that they have fenced off so that I can be in beside Grammy when she is on the computer, while AOL has the kitchen (which allows her to go outside) and the rest of the living room, because, apparently, Grammy likes her.
When I have to go outside, AOL gets shut into the living room, and the hall door is opened into the kitchen so that I can go out.
Sometimes, I get depressed and sad being locked up all the time…
When Grammy notices that I am really mopey, she will sometimes let me come out into the living room and sit on Papa’s lap so that I am, once again, a part of the family! That always makes me so HAPPY!
Ahhhhhhh....Queen of my Domain again!
