Home Alone

I'm awfully sad and it's a slow, slow day for me today. The sky is gray, the clouds are overcast, the birds aren't singing and I am feeling blue...Why? Cos' I am home alone! Oh, how I dread the weekdays (unless is it a public holiday)!

You know, I've grown so attached to Sharon and Jules; I want to spend every moment of my life with them. I'd get really sad when they both go to work and leave me all alone at home to take care of the house. I have my breakfast and my lunch all made and prepared for me but I don't have the appetite to eat unless someone is home with me (food does not taste good when you eat alone)! I've got all my wonderful doggie toys to play with, but hey, how fun can it be when you are playing all alone with no playmate?

Sometimes, when the loneliness gets too unbearable for me, I would cry and pine for them. I'd whine a little too (hope it does not annoy the neighbours too much), but I just cannot help it. Karen comes in once a week and that makes me feel really special cos' Karen takes one day of her busy week to spend it with me! Occasionally, Jules' Daddy wound pop by and he would give me a bone to chew on. I would be so delighted for the treat but once he is gone, I would push the bone away and wait for my masters to come home.

Everyone who comes and visits me would know that I am famous for my 'million-dollar' welcome and everyone knows equally well that when they want to say 'bye-bye', they will not get a 'million-dollar' goodbye as I would just lie away from the door and I would stay very quiet and look away from the door. Everyone knows that Brownie does not like goodbyes. I want my masters, my family and my friends all to be with me always. Once everyone leaves, I would rush to the window to see where they are heading to and I would often bark and cry out and ask them to take me out along with them (I promise to behave and to be a good girl!). Sharon can't take me to work cos' no pets are allowed at her workplace (if only bosses allowed their staff to bring their doggies to work!) and Jules lectures in a huge school, so some students may get scared at the sight of a huge, furry, brown monster tagging along with Jules (think 'bodyguard' with brown fur). Karen spends most of her time doing research in a library, so doggies are not allowed there as they might bark, drool or beg for food (highly unlikely for me as I would most likely be curled up next to her feet sleeping while she reads). But, I guess there is a place in this world for busy people and there is a place in this world for home-based doggies like me.

Well, I guess since everyone has a job and task to fulfill, I have mine too and for me, it is to guard the house and keep it safe from the naughty people called thieves and robbers. I would snarl, bark and bite them if they ever dared to come into my house!

In the meantime, while I focus on keeping the thieves at bay (Brownie is an excellent crimebuster!), I will also count down the hours and minutes before my masters come home! The happiest moment of my day would always be the time when Sharon and Jules come home! That's when I get all my TLC and attention! Here's a recent photo of me hanging out by the window, watching the world go by and waiting for my masters to come home from a busy day's work to their faithful doggie.
