My Better Side
CYNDI: The dogs usually come home complaining about a boring walk.
RUSTY: Do they go on the same walk as Jan?
MICAH: Just keeping her in line has to be a full-time job.
PERCY: We hear she is always stopping and trying to wander off.
SAM: We have very little excitement on our walks. Tuesday morning we saw this as we passed the place where Jan took the photos of Marcus Houdini last Friday. Someone tied a sack of fast food trash to a tree on mill property.
MARCUS: It was gone when we walked by a few hours later.
BUDDY: On Wednesday morning's walk, we met a short tan and white dog we didn't recognize. He was trotting down the sidewalk as if he had an important appointment.
MERCI: He was quite friendly. We all introduced ourselves and visited for a while and then he trotted off.
SAM: He was wearing a collar and a tag so Jan wanted to leash him so she could locate his owner. But she couldn't since she had her hands full with us. All she could do was watch him trot away and head up the hill toward Ingle's grocery. We hope his owner found him and he wasn't picked up by Animal Control.
MARCUS: Then, when I walked Jan in the evening, she was unhappy to find this in the same area the trash bag was tied to the tree on Tuesday. Deep ruts torn around the lawn.
MARCUS: Hey, here I am, down here. Jan promised if I kept my big head out of the photos, she would take some pictures of me. Big head? Well, look at her little pinhead in her shadow.
MARCUS: A side view. And yes, this is the same harness and leashes (2) I slipped out of last Friday. (Marcus Houdini)
MARCUS: Another side view. Do you think this is my better side?
MERCI: *sigh* How does everything end up being about you?
PERCY: So what are we thankful for this week?
CYNDI: I think we're thankful Jan and the older dogs finally met a friendly dog on a walk so Jan wasn't "beaten up" during the encounter.
