So, we decided to help out. We figured someone had to get the wrapping paper, so we set out from the backyard to go over to Walgreens to get some. We slipped under the fence in the backyard. Figured we could get there and back before Mom even noticed, it's only a few blocks. Fuji got a little scared and wanted to go back. She told me we needed money, but I thought my plan of using my special cute face with big liquid brown eyes to get whatever I want definitety would have worked. And then she wouldn't follow me home. She hid at Honey's house. I took matters into my own paws and alerted one of the 2-leggers. She helped me get back inside to Mom. That's when Mom noticed Fuji was NOT WHERE SHE BELONGED. I kept trying to tell her, but she couldn't understand my barks.
Fuji was too scared to come back even with Mom yelling her fool head off all up and down the block. I think she thought she was gonna get in BIG TROUBLE. But Mom was just really worried. Finally she got in the car to drive around the block. I heard another 2-legger walking her dogs asked Mom if the "little dog" was hers. That's when Mom followed Fuji to Honey's front yard. All before 7:30 am.
That adventure tired us out for the rest of the day! Fortunately, honey remembered the wrapping paper. Mom got lots of booty when Honey and the kid's took her out for dinners. See:
Recognize this? Yeah - it's even cooler in person!!
Thanks Grama Judy!
And then we all had yummy Carvel cake. Nom, nom, nom. See:
She was really happy with all her gifts.
No bones though, poor Mom.
