Karen Jo: I am going out to see the total eclipse of the moon. I have a really good view of it from the driveway.
I got a whole bunch of roast beef for lunch today. I sat there on the floor and stared at Mom and she kept giving me little bites as she ate. Unfortunately it's getting rather small now. What's next on the menu, Mom?
Karen Jo: Mexican food.
May I have some of that?
Karen Jo: No, Herman. It would make flames shoot out your butt.
That doesn't sound good. Are you going to cook something good soon?
Karen Jo: We will have chicken the day after tomorrow.
That's more like it. I got a really good petting session last night. Mom went to bed, but wasn't as sleepy as usual. She petted me for quite a long while before she went to sleep. I love to roll over on my back and let her pet my chest. I even let her pet my tummy a little bit. I do let Mom brush me enough to keep the mats away. I got spot shaved last winter, more than once, and I don't like it. My fur is healthier this year and I seem less prone to mats.
