Feeling the Embarrassments

Mabel Lou here. Feeling embarrassed - and before you ask, no, it has nothing to do with my secret I told you about. No, all my  creek-hiking aunties and my mom are all  laughing at me today. Why? Because they figured out what a big ol' baby I am!

It all started this morning. I wasn't expecting to go to the creek 'cause Momma had loaded up all her teaching stuff into the Jeep. But then, my auntie showed up with Bart! Momma took me outside and tried to get me in Aunties's much taller than our Jeep so Momma had to help me. I was so happy we were all going to the creek! Only 'Wait!!!! Auntie!!!! You left my MOOOOOOOoooom!!!!"

My auntie is not usually that rude! But I watched my mom as we drove away and she acted like she didn't even care... she just went in the house!

We got to the creek and suddenly, I felt so scared and FREAKED!  I couldn't catch my breath and my heart was doing the racing pittypats! And my auntie and Bart acted like it was just any other hike! They took off for our friend Bruno's. By the time I got there, I was just too upset to keep going! So... my auntie and Bart LEFT ME!

I took the opportunity to go back to the car - cause surely Momma would be there...but NO ONE was there! And I was really scared! So, thinking auntie and Bart must be all the way to the big river, I took the long way to Dirty Creek cause I thought I could pick up their scent. But I couldn't!!!

They had gotten all worried and went back to the car looking for ME!  I sniffed around hoping to figure out where they went when I finally spied them! By this time, I was so hot! I went and wallowed in the stinky mud in Dirty Creek! This did not make my auntie happy at all!

She put my leash on me and told me, "Mabel, You're GONNA go for a nice long walk! Now com'on!"

No thank you Auntie! I really don't wanna!!! I just want my Mom.

But she didn't hear me! So I did the next thing I could think of. I froze! I just refused to move. To tell you the truth, I just kept thinking my momma would be popping out from somewhere to hike with us! I looked in all directions... even the sky! But no Momma nowhere!

I was still in a panic and breathing all funny and my heart was fluttery. My auntie coaxed me over to the big river hoping that a little swimmy would calm me down but... as soon as she took off my leash, I raced to the car cause surely my momma was there by NOW!!!

But she wasn't...I was so sad and scared!

Auntie and Bart were right behind me and we all got in Auntie's car and they brought me home where my Auntie proceed to tell my mom what a big baby I am! And Mom gave me a bath to get the Dirty Creek stink off me and then... she left me ALL day to go teach her stupid classes!

But while Auntie and Bart were telling on me and they were all laughing, my mom even cried. She says she never knew I loved her that much.

So, yeah, maybe I act like a big bad girl when I'm really just a baby inside... but at least I'm not crazy. That's my mom... she must be crazy not to know how much I love her.

Awww that's so sweet Mabel Lou!
I think all rotties may look big and bad but they're all babies at heart :) Which is just extra cute!

Poor Mabel, we wouldn't laugh at you. One time our Dad tried to take Phantom for a walk without Mom and he just wouldn't go. He loves Dad too, but he wanted just Mom.

We know your Mom loves you and we bet she has no doubt how much you love her.

Oh Mabel Lou I am so glad you let us in on your story and you are safe. Sounds like your mommy loves you just as much as you love her!

Auggie Doggie here, Mabel Lou! We know exactly how you feels. One time Mommy's nephew went walking with us, and Nephew and I got ahead of Mommy, and when I couldn't see her, we had to turn around and go back. Um, I mean RUN back. Boy, that nephew could barely keep up! If I went any faster, he woulda been flying through the air! I pulled him for a block until I saw Mommy. Whew! I thought I lost her! I know that panic feeling you had, and am glad you are Okey dokey! We sure do love our Mommies, don't we?
