Job Security and The Truth

Dear Diary,
Mom won't find you this time, diary... not under this pillow.  The nerve of her, sharing you with the world....

Anyways -  big happenings in our house.  Mom is saying that I'll be losing my job of watching the house, come Friday.  She says the house won't need watchin' since she'll be home all the time.  What the...??  

What about - 'oh, gracie.. i need to go to work so i'll have money to buy you bones' or 'gracie, you know i have to work otherwise you wouldn't have a place to sleep at night'?  Where'd that go?  

Now, she thinks this'll make me happy cuz when she leaves to go to work I put on the sad - I can't believe you'd leave me here all day by myself - face.  When in reality... the minute I see her car go up the road, I run for the garage door opener, retrieve the battery operated Barbie Dream car from inside, and ride around with the wind in my ears and the sun in my face.  

Places I've gone:  The Pet Store where I eat cookies from the bin to visit the less fortunate, the dog park where I pick fights with black dogs mingle with others of my kind, and the dairy queen where I pig-out dog-out on vanilla ice cream and french fries.

I guess this foils the plans I had of visiting California to see my boyfriend Samson in the future.  I even had an extra battery charged up for the trip out.  Grrrrr...

  Mom doesn't know the truth about me. 

 And Diary, dear Diary...  Don't you dare tell her!!!


  1. Bummer, and here you were, living the dream.

  2. Oh, this is a SCREAM!! Gracie, you are the most clever dog I know!! I was JUST thinking about you, and here you popped up on my sidebar! And remember, you are too young to get married! You need to sow some wild bones first!

  3. Well, Gracie, I always say - "Never make plans!" Yep, right down the tubes!

  4. LOL Gracie this is hilarious!!
    I've often wondered what goes through Madi's mind and what she does when we leave for a few hours.
    Now we two have a secret undercover life. Thanks for the laughs today. I especially like your driver's license. Please don't tell Madi she'll be wanting one too.
    Hugs Madi's Mom

  5. Oh Gracie, you are so funny! You'll just have to be very creative with mommy home all day. I'll bet you might just get a few more treats than usual!!! Happy 4th of July to all of you!

  6. You got your own car??? I want one too! Guess I will have to work on that now hehe. Puppy kisses, Miss Mindy

  7. Woof! Woof! Golden Laughter ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. Poor Gracie!
    Life as you know it is over.
    My condolences.

  9. Oh, Gracie - - - - you are too funny. You really need to meet Chance, the wonder-blogging dog. I might have to send your mom the blog address on that one.
    Hint for keeping your schemes going - - - - act like you LOVE Mom being home - - give her false security!!! Then maybe you can still sneak out.

  10. Gracie, you are a pill! I love you!

  11. Gracie, mum is the word here--I'm picturing something from Toy Story where the Barbies and all the toys were all running around having fun--I'm glad you're having fun too, but all good things must come to an end...Sorry!! :-))

  12. I'm laughing so hard I can't speak.

    I wonder what my Mollie is thinking...especially at bath time.



  13. hahaha! Love the report from Gracie and the driver's license is too cute! You Go Gracie - Girl!

    I've been enjoying all that you are sharing about y'all's new buisness venture, too... sending lots of good wishes your way!


  14. Too funny! Maybe Mom will be too busy with customers to see you escaping in the Barbie car. Cute driver's license!
