Our dog, Dodger, doesn't spend too much time home alone. Doc takes him along pretty much everywhere he goes. Lately, because it has been so hot here, he has been left home a little more often. He usually doesn't get into any trouble when he is left alone, but lately every time we come home we find the phone in Doc's office off the hook. We can't help but wonder who Dodger has been calling.
It might be his ex-girlfriend, Sammie, who lives in the neighborhood. He has been sort of making eyes at her again across the open space.
Maybe he is trying to find an exterminator to do something about that pesky squirrel who constantly teases him from a tree in the back yard.
He might be looking for an agent. Some people at the dog park have started calling him Hollywood and telling him he looks like he should be in the movies.I've been afraid that would go to his head.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was calling Dog Protective Services to report us for leaving him home alone.
I hope he hasn't gotten hooked up with a pretty Poodle in Paris. That could get very expensive.
Since Dodger won't admit to anything we'll just have to wait until we get the phone bill to find out what he has been up to.
In the meantime I guess we will have to quit hiding the remote and let him go back to watching Pay-Per-View when he is home alone. It is probably cheaper than calling Paris.
