and I think to myself “wtf? Are we going to war?”
Good thing I have Dexter along, he’s always ready for war.
It’s probably my imagination, but my throat immediately gets all scratchy and my head starts to hurt because they’re probably spraying poison everywhere. There goes that walk. I decide to cut our morning stroll short and take the dogs to Derby Reach for some swimming instead. But that means leaving the TWoo behind.
doG, I suck so much at leaving TWooie behind. I mean, he’s okay with being in the big crate with a beefy bone to chew on (one that is his ALL HIS AND NOBODY ELSE CAN HAVE IT) but I feel like such a shit heel every time I do. Of course, every time I don’t I regret it, because his dog-on-dog aggro issues are still far from resolved and he makes dog park trips un-fun.
So I trick TWooie into the crate with a bone the size of his head (over-compensate much, Food Lady?) and load everyone else to the car and zip up to Derby Reach.
Swimming goes about as well as you’d imagine. First of all, Dexter doesn’t. Swim, that is.
Nice language Dexter. Do you kiss your mother with that mouth?
Secondly, after wrangling 4 farm dogs into leashes and collars and getting dragged all the way from the parking lot to the off leash park, I realize I have forgotten the Chuck-It in the car, and have nothing which with to throw balls for the other dogs. Nice.
Also, for some reason the Fraser River is like, rushing, so the dogs keep getting swept out to … sea? Whatever – the current is pretty rough and nobody seems to be having any fun, so we decide to practice our “go outs” with the disc.
Some people make their kids sing for their supper. I make mine dance for the Wootie Toy™
Even Mr. “I am digging a hole and will bite any Boxer who comes near my hole” Woo can be convinced to play for a bit, with enough coaxing. And I think this would make a lovely coat hook if replicated in plastic, don’t you? The disc could stick to the wall, and you could hang your coat on his tail. Awesome.
Now the dogs are sleeping and leaving dog-shaped piles of sand around the house. Shhhh.
We hope you have a fun weekend!! If you are looking for something to do this weekend, consider the SAINTS Open House . Admission is by donation and I know they’d love to see you, and you’ll really enjoy yourself too!!
My photo tip of the month is “take lots of photos until you get it right.”
