Kramer’s Korner

Wait! What! We’re going where?

Hello again all my friends and readers.  Well, it has been an exciting couple of weeks, for both me and Bob.  Bob got excited when I locked him out of the car in the driveway, while it was running, with me and his cellphone inside.  It was kind of humorous watching him go from door to door staring in at me staring back at him.  I don’t know why all the emotion.  I had my booster seat and it was right in front of an air conditioning vent, so what’s to worry.  After borrowing a neighbors cell phone and placing a few calls to the dealership, Bob finally figured out a way to get in by himself.  I was glad he did.  It was a little warm for him to get all worked up like that and, he isn’t getting any younger you know.

I, on the other hand, as the above picture would reveal, got a little excited when I found out Bob was taking me back to see Trish the groomer last week.  In fact, he took all of us.  It was like a family outing.  Sophie likes to dig holes in the backyard and Scooter has decided to help her.  Trish said they were the two dirtiest dogs she has ever seen.  I did quite a bit better this time, with my two buddies keeping an eye on things.  We went through the bath and brushing without too much of a problem, except, I don’t like to stand up and Trish doesn’t like me to sit down.  She told Bob I was lazy.  Can you imagine?  She had to groom me with one hand under my butt.  I thought it was a little rude personally, but Bob had brought treats with him, and I wanted some of those.  I’m still not crazy about the dryer however and I REALLY don’t like my nails being trimmed.  So, I tried to bite her, unsuccessfully I might add.  It was only a warning nip anyway.  Kind of a “you nail me and I’ll nail you” thing. I tried not to overdo it.  I really wanted those snacks. Actually, I didn’t think it was possible for me to look any better, but I’ll have to admit I was wrong. Wait until that Beagle sees me.
Well, I guess that will about do it for now.  So, to all my brothers and sisters that are still homeless, keep the faith.  It will happen for you to. And to all my friends and  readers, keep a smile on your face, a treat in your pocket, and a dog in your heart. Until next time, Kramer signing off.

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. OMG You must have been frantic, being locked out of your car. All three groomed at the same time. An exciting day for sure. Treats are always a good idea, for everyone.

    Oh my goodness Kramer – you’ve had a busy week! 😀
    Poor Bob! He must have been frantic with you locked in the car. How on Earth did you manage that?
    But you do look lovely, clean and fluffy after your pampering at the groomers. Who knows? You may get to like it – with all those treats! 😀

    Just for the record, I would have freaked out too if I had locked the pups in the car. Being short on initiative and long on panic, I probably would have just gone ahead and smashed a window. Kudos for your cool head.

      Although it does not show in the manual and no one at the dealership ever mentioned it, in the handle of the drivers door there is a little plastic piece you can pry off and there is a key hole hidden behind it. I found it by accident. I was able to use the other key fob to open it. Dumb luck.

    You have a wicked sense of humour and I love it! And you really do look pretty good. I won’t tell Bob if you want.
