[ed note: each week, while Chip's family is in Costa Rica, I promised they would receive a photo and letter from Chip, so they would be able to keep tabs and guage her general well being. Of course, being a blogger, I decided to make the emails public. Nice. Hey Tim and Anne! Love your dog! Keep in mind, this is not my dog, but I LOVE her all the same. Also, this photo is NOT the actual photo that accompanied the email. In case you're wondering. I just thought it was a nice shot.]
This week, i found a new comfy place to sleep: the girl's bedroom floor. And that is where you see me laying in this photo.
The people I am staying with seem to be very obsessed with a sadly out-of-date video game system and some game called Super Mario brothers. They play it every night in the girl's room. I don't mind. Except when they lose and they yell very loudly.
I went for a couple of walks, and have been accompanying the boy and the girl to the bus stop in the mornings. I have been barking at the neighbor cats, and pooping in the same spot in the backyard, which really seems to make the lady happy.
They seem to like me a lot. Maybe too much. But I don't mind. It will do just fine until all of you return home. I actually overheard the lady tell a different lady named Leslie that they were thinking of dyeing my fur black and pretending not to know all of you when you return home. Just so you are aware, if this does occur, do not be fooled. It IS me.
Today, the people are actually leaving town for one night, and one of the man's coffee shop employees is coming over to stay with me and keep me company until the people come back tomorrow at around 5 p.m.
Maybe I can get a little peace and quiet?
Give my love to Ellie Ann, Michael and Ida.
p.s. they are coming up with silly nicknames for me, like, "Chip dip dippity do" and "Chippy McScratchy". HELP!
