Yes, this is the TWENTIETH post on my very first blog!! A feeling of complete satisfaction has just swept over me like an enormous tsunami wave. If something should happen that prevents myself from typing out the twenty-first post, touch wood, I don’t think I will give a whoop, because I, for once, feel like I have done my bit and can rest in peace. Yes, if I were a human; writing twenty posts on a website wouldn’t exactly be part of my bucket list. But for a dog [unlike myself] the circumstances are different.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that I, Feni, am the FIRST canine who has actually understood and used a device as complicated as a PC. To say that I have ALSO mastered the QWERTY gadget and managed to make sense of the weird button-arrangement… well, that revelation would make Einstein retire.
Anyway, I want to apologize for abandoning you for the past few days, dearest reader. It is my sincere endeavor to pour out my emotions on this site at least once a day. Alas, that is not to be. In fact, it is NEVER meant to be because of my family. You see, they care for me too much [my version of the ugly truth] to let me out of their sight for more than a few moments at a time, and sometimes, when they are engulfed by -shall we say- more important tasks, I’m not sure whether to make a bee-line for the keyboard or to stay put, because sometimes, they appear and disappear in a matter of seconds, and you do NOT want to be in my shoes when -if, if– they find out I’ve been using their desktop without asking them first.
I mean, I have to beg and plead for a couple of hours before they even consider treating me with a sickly stick-of-a-treat. It’s not even as thick as my TAIL!! [Granted, my tail does have an unusual breadth, but STILL!! The bones that the dogs on T.V have are at least THRICE as large as the ones I’m fed every blue moon]
No… Oh Lord, no… Please don’t let that be footsteps I hear scuttling outside the door. I think I’d better go and check out the scene, just in case. Gawd it is difficult being the canine with the thing for writing!!
