Okay, so May was all soft and sweet with Mother's Day and I'm all about soft and sweet, but there's a ruff & tuff side to Rhu too. A side that only us guys share. Yep...when just us guys hang out sometimes there's nothin' cooler! You know...we do guy things.
Just this weekend we were bachin' it... that's guy talk for pretendin' that we're on our own...free to do what we want... when we want - kinda like our version of "Hall Pass"...A pretty TAME version...But still it was just us guys for a full day and a half.
So, where did my dad take me? Well, my park just so happened to be holding a carnival with rides and everything so off we went and man was I excited! But after we got there... well, the rides were a paltry second compared to me...heck, dad should've sold tickets to pet me! I was soooo much the bigger attraction than any ride there! I was even bigger than the rock band playin' and they were pretty darn good too! When the audience started cheering and clapping we all know what that means...I become super Rhu, lit like a firecracker! I'm sure that cheering could not have been for just the band, right?... Just 'cause some guy was playin guitar, singin' and jumpin' all over the stage? Nah, it had to be for me...I'm sure. Rockin' Rhubarb stole that bands' thunder along with their groupies who came runnin' over to meet the real star! I was the main attraction now! That's the way I like it too!
Okay so let's get this guy party goin' - bring on the bike moguls, dad!
C'mon, Rhu, focus! I like 'em steep, dad, and he found 'em just like I like 'em. Whew, after 5 or 6 of those babies though we're pretty worn out! That is some big work... at least for dad!
After all this treacherousness, we needed to end this day on a high note and what better way than a snow cone! I told you it was tamed down!! I am an ice fanatic so this flavored ice rocked my world pretty hard! YUUUMMMM!
We had soooo much fun that I couldn't forget it - so early the next morning I started workin' my dad right from the minute we woke up. Would he go for it? What do you think? Why, OF COURSE!! Plus, I pretended he broke the cardinal "rhule" too - if you even dare touch my cart you are required to take me somewhere in it... soooo, technically it was his fault, after all, he did move my cart about a foot!...My act of persuasion worked like a charm and we were on our way back.
I was an even bigger hit the next day! Petting, pictures, people all over again!
Yeah, just us guys, doin' guy stuff havin' a great time on our own...Whoa, that last mogul was a doozy, dad! Bet mom will wish she could've seen that one! Or not! Might be too much for her...Hum, I wonder what mom would've said... Umm.. I'm kinda...umm, missing mom...shhhh, Rhu be the ruff and tuff guy you KNOW you are...YEAH, cool stuff!...but dad?...Don't forget to rub my paws tonight, K? And, uh, maybe sing softly...OK, skip the singing....but uh, when did you say mom's coming back?... Oh, okay, is tomorrow a long time away?
Well, for our final outing, dad said he was going to surprise me... then set me inside the car.
I wondered where we were en route to? To find a new toy,maybe? That would rock! Finally the car slowed to a stop and dad got out while I pretended to sleep. Then I heard something very familiar... Could my ears be deceiving me? I think I heard mom's voice saying my name!! Oh boy,yes! There she was! Ok Rhu be cool now, pretend like it's no big deal...darn tail...stop wagging!!!
I couldn't wait for her to hear what us men had been up to...just the boys...yep, just us two...We TORE up that bike trail, mom!...would you rub my paws?...You shoulda seen me and dad mom, we were like super cool together...oh yes, that's the spot... right behind the ears...zzzzzzz...mom? Dad's the coolest....zzzzzz...that left paw may need a little work too, mom....zzzzz ...Dad's the best dad any where...We were just fine without ya...see ya...zzzzz... in the morning....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Have a wonderful Father's Day and may everyone else's dad be as cool as mine!
