Some Days You Lose A Red Parrot-Part One

This is Deputy Digby Pancake. Some days are well, some days. And no matter how hard you try, you realize that you would have been better off just staying in bed like you wanted to anyways. Or some days you lose a red parrot. And either way, both aren’t good.

Yesterday was one of my least favorite days of the year. General mayhem occurring everywhere, loud noises, people throwing exploding things, and it takes me back to a time I never want to think about again when I was a hunting dog. And I get scared, and I can’t move, no matter how hard I try. It hurts the persons when I get so scared, and so they try to do everything they can to cheer me up. They even tried to take me and the Sheriff to a shin dig.

And although it was fun for a little while, I started hearing those noises again. And I just wanted to go to bed. So I did.


Now, when I go to bed and something exciting happens, I get upset. But nothing exciting ever happens around here, so I don’t get upset. But some man losing a red parrot and making crazy noises to add to the fireworks noises was not something that happens everyday. Nope, sure doesn’t.  Fiddlers and fireworks and parrots. I suppose that you could consider that exciting. Obviously, after hours and hours of this man person trying to call his red parrot, the red parrot decided he didn’t want to come down from wherever he was. Some days you have a red parrot, and some days you lose a red parrot.

If we didn’t know better, we would think everyone in this Washington place has pet birds. Birds that even wait outside the bathroom in the National Park. I don’t know. I just don’t know. Some things you just can’t explain. And so you don’t even try.


A common excuse we have been using lately is that “we don’t live here. We don’t know.” And it seems to work pretty good. But I would like to know if the people that live here in this Washington place know where the red parrot is and how that man got his bird to wait outside the bathroom, and also why a bird would not be allowed inside a bathroom.

The point of my story is this. Yesterday? It just wasn’t a good day. I am not going to sugar coat it with maple syrup or even a plate of pancakes. Some days, no matter how hard you try, things just don’t work out. And I am glad it is over, and I certainly hope that today there are no loud noises, no one loses a red parrot, and that we can start over. Girl Person is suggesting that we go to a lavender farm today to see how it can relax us dogs and even persons. I think she is even going to do a live video on our Facebook page today.


The bad days make you appreciate the good. Run away red parrots make you appreciate obedient ones. So yesterday? I will see you again next year. I made it thru another year.


But you may be wondering.  What. Happened. To. The. Parrot.


Let’s just say, he made an appearance in a big way.  To Be Continued Tomorrow…
