Here in Dominican Republic the lights go out, sometimes often. Where I live the electricity is pretty good and it usually only goes out if there is a storm or if someone is working on a line. So, Thursday it was raining and the electricity went out in the evening. Then Friday in the morning the power went out in the morning and came back around 4 when the electric people were finished doing whatever work they were doing.
In the morning we did like we always did. Around 6AM mom took Buenagente and I out for the morning romp. Zippy was waiting for us in the street like she has been doing lately. She likes to come run and play with us at the Fortaleza Ozama.
After we had our fun mom took us back home. She fed us with some good dog food that a friend of Buenagente donated to help him. I usually get the everyday food that mom buys but she let me have some of Buenas food today.
Buenagente and I played a little after breakfast then we laid down for our nap. If you are wondering about this picture, Yes, I sleep with my eyes open. It really bugs mom but I cannot help it. I have no idea what my eyes are doing when I sleep.
Then the lights went out!
Mom told us to stay and relax that she had to go out and run a few errands since she could not work. She had to leave Buenagente and I in the house. She said Buenagente had to stay in because the last time he followed her to the Jumbo Express he decided to do some shopping too.
She told me the story:
Mom when into the store and 1 minute later here comes Buenagente walking down the isle to find mom! The store manager was running behind looking all frazzled. Mom left her cart and walked Buenagente outside, told him to stay and she went shopping again. She made it to the produce section and here comes Buena running down the aisle to find mom. It happened 2 more times. Each time someone opened the door Buena decided it was for him to go inside the store to be with mom. Finally, Buenagente decided to wait outside.
Because of this mom made Buenagente stay in the house with me. We both barked out the window as we saw her going down the street. I was telling her not to forget some of those fine cows’ feet bones that I love so much.
When mom came back she put away the groceries and gave each of us a small bone for being such good kids while she was out. She thinks we were good because we make sure not to mess up the house but we had a good ole time while she was out..wink..wink.
The electricity was still out so mom decided to take us on a walk. We went to the sweet shop and mom got some of her favorite cheese, queso de hoja. She never can wait when she gets this. She opened the bag and pulled off a thin piece. Of course, mom always shares with us.
We walked around a little more. Checking out some of the road work that is still going on, Renovada Ciudad Colonial.
Then we went back to my neighborhood where I know everyone and I feel most comfortable. A man was selling a duster thingy that can reach up to the high ceiling and get rid of the cobwebs. Even though mom does not clean much (sorry mom) she got one.
Mom showed me and it was all nice. I do not care about that stuff. Then she showed Buenagente. He went crazy!
He was attacking that little fuzzy thing. He took the top off once. He thought it was his.
Buenagente got the crazy eyes, I taught him that. We were all watching him and laughing as he was attacking that duster. He is completely crazy sometimes.
Well, the lights came back. We finished visiting with the neighbors. I did a few tricks. We had a glass of water. We barked at some pigeons. Then it was time to head back home.
It was a fun afternoon “sin luz”!
