Bunny here at the keyboard to share an unusual adventure that we had this weekend.
A few days ago, Shrimp’s mom asked us if we could watch her overnight. Mom was a little surprised, but they try to keep an eye on Shrimp, so Mom and Dad said it was okay. We didn’t know about this beforehand, Mom and Dad just showed up with Shrimp and all her stuff. That human puppy had more accessories and stuff than I do! I was impressed. She had a lot of smells on her, too. Blueberry and I gave her a thorough insnifftigation and we approved of her staying with us. After our insnifftigation, we determined that she should be called Goldilocks on the blog from now on.
Küster really liked her, too. When he got out of his crate, he showed her his favorite toy, gave her a kiss and tried to play with some of her toys. Goldilocks really liked him and she smiled at him a lot. He wanted to know when she was moving in, but the rest of us told him that wasn’t happening.
Morgan, however, completely lost her mind. She was very excited about the human puppy, but she couldn’t control herself at all. Dad worked with her for about an hour to try to get her brain to start working again, but she ended up in the kennel in the basement until Goldilocks went to bed. When he brought her back upstairs, she went after Mom because she could smell Goldilocks on her. Mom has some scratches on her chest and a bruise on her arm. Mom doesn’t think that Morgan didn’t like Goldilocks, more that she just went into total sensory overload. We’re putting Mo into the brain rewiring program in hopes that it will bring her back to reality.
Of course, when bedtime came, we were all a little less enthusiastic about Goldilocks staying at our house. For something so tiny, she sure can cry a lot. We know a lot of things that she didn’t want, like toys, a bottle and being talked to. Morgan even howled from the basement in sympathy. It was a happy moment when she finally fell asleep.
Aside from Morgan losing her mind, the rest of us mostly enjoyed Goldilocks. She made a good headrest and the smells she had were fascinating. Küster, Blueberry and I could have sniffed her for days. She also seems to really like us. She lives in an apartment, so she can’t have animals live with her, but I think she would like to. She did have some pretty neat toys, too. Küster’s favorite was a little flower that sang and her panda Pillow Pet. My bet is that Mom is not buying him a Pillow Pet of his own, though, given his propensity towards shredding and destuffing things. I think I might like to have a Pillow Pet of my own, though, although I think I’d rather just have the human puppy visit from time to time.
It was a different sort of adventure for us for sure, but that’s what keeps life interesting! We enjoyed having Goldilocks here for the most part and we hope she’ll come back to visit again. She just has to promise to bring some toys with her.
