Did you know that the sock monster had been on vacation? I think he went to the Isle of Sockaroo. Well it appears he is back because look what I found when I went outside this morning. Not only had he taken my favorite tug toy, but my Moozle bone, my twist bone and a pair of dads socks!!!!! If that wasn't bad enough - he left them outside ALL night long in the rain!!!! Mom says she is going to have serious words with the sock monster when she finds him...but at least he doesn't chew the socks - he just likes to take them outside. Personally I think he just can't stand the smell of Dad's stinky feet BOL In other news I must say I am enjoying this noice cold weather we are having - except for one thing and that is the wind. It is now blowing right in my doggie door so mom has had to put the lock on it to stop it from flapping which means I am back to having to ring the bell to go out again and WAITING for mom to come open the door. I don't think doggie doors should ever be locked, no matter how much the cold wind blows through them.
