A Day in the Life of a Dog
by Louis the Blogging Dog
They say that every dog has his day. The truth, however, is that when a dog wakes up in the morning he never knows what the day will bring. It could go one way or the other. So I am happy to say that today was an all-round good one.
The Life of a Dog
Mimi, Hazuzu and I slept in because we didn’t get to sleep until after 2:00 am. After Mimi got herself ready for the day, the three of us went downstairs to find that a note had been placed through the mail slot. It was from a neighbor we had never met. Mimi read it out loud to Eric, so I know exactly what it said.
This neighbor, who also lives in Killarney Gardens, wrote that she has two children, Lizzy who is nine and Nathaniel who is six. They want to have a dog but the mom works full time and doesn’t think they are home enough to be good companions for the dog. They were hoping that they could meet me and maybe take me for walks from time to time. I snorted at that one. Little did she know that if there are any walks to be taken that I’d be taking the peeps, not the other way around.
We had never met these peeps before because they are relatively new here. They heard about me from another co-op member. This place is like a little village.
I was open to the idea. I usually like kids because their energy often matches mine. Mimi also likes kids and she told Eric that it would be good for all of us if it worked out. It seemed like an opportunity to go on more walks and I love my walks!
Mimi called the mom, whose name is Carrie, and arranged for them to come over in the afternoon to meet me. When they arrived, I was so happy. I gave them kisses and they stroked me. Nathaniel gave me a belly rub while Lizzy rubbed that place above my ear where it feels so good! Then Lizzy, Nathaniel, Carrie and I went for a walk around the swimming pool and the co-op office.
I was on my best behavior and so were the kids. I didn’t bark or pull on the leash and they didn’t complain about picking up my poo. These are good kids. I have a feeling that they will be easy to train!
Carrie plans to return with Lizzy and Nathaniel on Wednesday for another walk. I have three new friends. In a dog’s world, anything can happen in a day in the life of a dog.
