Another week has past since you all left, and so far, I feel like I’m managing okay. The new family is smelling better to me every day, and that’s a big relief. You know how disconcerting new smelling families can be, especially to an older dog. But I digress…
The biggest news of the week was that the Girl hooked my leash up to the jump ring that holds my collar tags in place instead of the collar ring, and when she opened the door as we were headed out to the bus stop, I saw the man who lives across the alley from our house and wanted to smell him, so I bolted out the door and BOOM! the jump ring broke, and the tags popped off and into the snow. The lady managed to find the rabies tag, but…we are still digging through the snow to find my id tag. I tried to explain to them I wasn’t planning to wander off, but I’m not sure they would believe me at this point. They are looking at me with a bit more suspiscion…almost as if i tried to lose the tags. Silly humans.
Other than that, I’ve been out for a walk every morning, and the Lady keeps yelling, "HEEL, HEEL" and every time she does, I look back at her for a moment, and then keep right on exploring the sidewalks. It’s great to get out in the fresh air! The Lady was telling the Man something about her arm feeling like it was out of it’s pocket….or socket? Something like that. Again, I just like walking.
The Lady has also been near her computer constantly all week. I don’t understand what she is talking about all day long, but I am assuming sometimes she is not very happy with whatever is going on with the computer. I hear words that she only says around the Boy and the Girl when she’s really mad. And something about, "I don’t need this kind of stress…"
But me? I just lay on the floor and take it all in stride. Because she always takes a few minutes to scratch me and make me feel like she’s really glad I’m here.
Like I said, she is smelling better to me every day. I think it’s because she wears the same jeans everyday. It’s all working out.
Give me love to Ellie Ann, Michael and Ida.
