Suffering from Neglect, Cinnamon Fights Back with Words

Many of you have wondered why I haven't written much lately. And my Facebook friends have suggested that I TELL ALL!

Well, first of all, because my owner has been going on walking tours of historic areas of Portland (way across the bridge from here), I've been having to get up really early. I love sleeping in. But several mornings this week I have had to be up and outside by 8 AM! Imagine! I have to get up, go outside and then can't go back to bed in my warm house because SHE IS LEAVING! So I am fed an early breakfast and have to go in the garage to stay while she is gone. I do have my old bed in the garage, so I usually just sleep the hours away.

So today, Sunday, I am sleeping in as long AS I WANT TO! See my magnificent coonie ball? Nobody better bother me until I, Cinnamon, am ready to get up.

Coonie Ball at 9:30 am
So this week has been a bust for any fun. While she is walking walking tours, I am sleeping. Here's what she does:

Notice that there are NO dogs on this walking tour.
And if that wasn't enough, she had to celebrate Chinese New Year by going to the Lan Su Chinese Garden with her photography friends. They don't allow dogs there either. She had a great time, saw the Lion Dancers and went out for Chinese food. All the while I was locked in the garage with a bowl of water. IMAGINE! And the celebration went on. One night after I had dinner, she took off and went  out to a Chinese restaurant for more celebrating. AND LEFT ME ALL ALONE!

Here's the Lion Dancers. I would have had fun chasing them!
So now it is Sunday and she is FINALLY STAYING HOME! I slept in and will have a leisurely breakfast. I think I'll laze in the sun on the deck because I don't have to go in the garage today. YAY!

See what a week I have had. That's no way to treat a dog, right?

Love, Neglected Cinnamon
