Sweet Pea here!
Most of you already know that I don't live with the rest of The Monkeys and that I live separately with my Daddy. I visit The Monkeys' frequently, but most of the time it's just me and Daddy.
I already have my paws full taking care of Daddy on a day-to-day basis, but on Tuesday, Daddy's sweet Grandmother Isabel died. She was 95 and was admitted to the hospital with pneumonia but couldn't hang on. Now Daddy is sad and missing his 'Nan'. My job is to cheer him up and make him feel loved.
First I need to make him smile by being a clown. Clowning comes naturally to me but in sad situations I really have to pull out all the stops.
He likes it when I hang off the furniture...
...and play with my toys
His favorite, though, is when I do my prairie dog impression.
Once Daddy's smiling and even laughing at my clown act, I need to swoop in with the affection. A little snuggling is very necessary when you have a sad Daddy on your paws. I like to clean his beard (just in case he forgets) and snuggle in for a snooze in the crook of his arm. He just loves this (and so do I)!
Don't worry, I'll take care of my Daddy!
