Getting the attention a King deserves.

By Simba.

With Fat fat Daddy at work and Mummy stumbling around half blind, I have not been getting the attention I should be. Its just not good enough. I have not had walks, my blog has been neglected, some days I have had to remind myself I am a King.

So today I took the opportunity to remind Mummy just how important I am. She finally decided to take me for a walk ( I had a walk yesterday, but it was the shortest walk ever). We were nearly home from our walk when I realised Mummy was walking off without me again. You stop and sniff, you look up and they are gone. So I saw my chance to remind her that the whole wide world does revolve around me.

When she looked around I had gone. She called me, nothing. She walked back to where I had been sniffing, but she couldn't see me. She called me again and I decided to give her a clue to my whereabouts by whining. I can do this really sad, help me whine, it sends her into panic mode. I could hear her running around looking now and I knew the panic was setting in. Little known fact about Mummy here, she is deaf in one ear and couldn't work out where my whining was coming from.

Now with her in full panic mode I stopped whining. She wondered for a minute about phoning the police. But didn't think the police would send a helicopter out for a missing dog, even a king.

I started whining again, she ran around looking in the bushes, thinking I was stuck somewhere. Then she ran the other way towards the little stream to see if I had fallen in. She was really panicking now, she ran to the hole that fills with rain water, thinking he wouldn't be there, we were walking the other way. There I was, ok some would say I had fallen in and couldn't get out, but I had it all under control.

She kept saying oh, Simba, thank dog you are alright. She couldn't reach me, so she had to get all muddy trying to clip my lead on to get me out. She very nearly fell in with me at one point.

When we got home I had warm towels and treats and loads of hugs and kisses. All is right with the world, I am king again. The things I have to do to get attention!?

I gave her my best puppy dogs eyes to remind her how much she loves me.

It worked.

Oh King Simba.....what a good idea for attention. I am glad your mummy found you before you got too cold. Maybe you should lay off mummy until she can see better tho. might mean more treets!!!!

We dogs get into all sorts of trouble. Glad you were ok. Has your mum calmed down yet? Our pinky takes a while to settle after we do something we shouldn't.

Have a great weekend.

There is a reason you are king. I think that reason is very clear right now.

Oh poor Mummy, healing & worrying? Bark at her when your gonna take one of those muddy turkish baths next time Simba. Come to NoMans Land, catch the bus and walk with me.

All Hail King Simba! We're glad you had everything under control!

Deefor said...

Good tactic. I guess you scared your mom a little but it got you noticed. I'm always on the leash so my mom can't forget me. I just yank at her if she does,

We knew that your mom loves you even if sometimes she dont show it.
