Quarantined In Bedford

Dear Fans,

Sorry it’s been so long since my last blog post. I was holding out on a hope and prayer that America would re-open on Easter Sunday.

I was so excited to update you with my return to Central Park and to the NYPD’s Most Wanted List of Off-Leash Dogs. 

No such luck: I am STILL quarantined in Bedford. As Kim Jong Il once said, ‘I feel like a bird in a cage.’ 

The last several weeks have felt like that time I had to fast for bloodwork.

Still, having Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Sophie, and Mom with me and Rocky 24/7 has its advantages. For starters, there is always someone to play with and entertain me. Here I am playing the “Cookie!” “Quiet!” game with Grandma and Grandpa in their kitchen while mom is at work. I bark to let them know I want a cookie, and then they yell “Quiet!”

Easily Entertained

As I sit here, taking it all in in these uncertain times, I know how lucky I am to have birds, toys, my health, and more birds. I just miss so many of the little things, like pretending that I am on a leash for the NYPD in Central Park. And here I am after rolling in poop to get attention last year. Now, I have too much attention. They never leave.

Before the virus, this is what I would have to do to get attention.

Rocky and I are never alone.  Strange times, we are in.

Weighing the pros and cons

I know I am lucky to have family around me, a big backyard, and plenty to do that can land me back in the emergency room. Quarantined life could be worse.
