White Dog tried to keep herself busy on yet another bad weather day filled first with sleety snow and then rain and as always (it seems lately) no sun. She took all of her toys from her basket and arranged them across the room; some which lived in the bottom of the basket she had not seen in a long time. After taking stock of her cache, she put on her engineering hat and tried to make herself fit into the toy basket for a nap. White Dog was not very successful at finding a comfortable containment and gave up the idea for a bed nap. Since she was on the bed, it only made sense to turn down the blankets and rearrange the pillows as well. After a restorative snooze, White Dog was hungry but did not want kibble; Hana Hearts is what she tapped me and requested. After three treats I told her that more treats would require a trade. It was raining and she really did not want to go out; I found her looking for treasures to trade in the waste basket and on the night stand. She pouted at being caught by staring mournfully out the window and ignoring me. Later, as I worked on the household budget, White Dog assisted by shredding the unneeded parts of the bills. We celebrated yet another month of solvency by sharing a peanut butter sandwich...and hoping that "the sun will come up...tomorrow..."
