Thank dogness!!! Even though Mom says we can't go walkies in the woods because of the ticks - we can still go to MY park and for the 4th day in a row we have had the most gorgeous weather. It also helped that I used my CMI (Cowspotdog Mind Influence) on her - basically this involves following at her feet EVERYWHERE she goes and sending a constant barrage of thought chants to her brain - park - park - park - park - (trust me - it works!)
So off we went to MY park - Hmmm I wonder if anything is living in the hole this year - Mom pulled us away REALLY fast as last year there was something living in there - BEES! Sometimes it is not a good idea to stick your nose in someones else's home!
We followed the path around the lake until Mom found a nice spot for the 'required' photos - (payment for the walkies she says!!!!) Notice how the Dweeb not only sticks to my side but even keeps in step with me! Mom finally found the 'right spot' and after what seemed like 87 gazillion pics she finally got one she was happy with. Believe me - we tried to thwart the process - we looked in different directions, we looked up, down and sideways trying to avoid the flashy beast - but that darn buffalo jerky she suddenly pulled out of her pocket did us in! What an under handed trick MOM !
And of coarse as much as she TRIED to capture MY regal self for a close up - I wasn't going to let her have her way - (by then we had scarfed all the jerky so I had no reason to co-operate any further!) It went something like this "Oh look Mom - there's a squirrel over there - and look - there is a bird over there. Was that a squeaky tree I heard - oh there's a jogger coming and what is that - THERE IS ANOTHER DOG in MY park!!!" All good decoys - You get the idea - I hope you are all taking notes!
Too right no more jerky no more co-operation. Well done. Glad you had a great tick free walk. Have a terrific Tuesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
