I can tell already that this HY is gonna be better than last HY. It’s just gotta be . . . cause we been on lotsa extra long Walkies & I got to explore places in my neighborhood & surroundings that I haven’t seen in a long long time. Since like I can barely remember when. & I’ve seen some new things that give a dog paws @ the wonder of it all.
NYD we went for an extra long walkies & it was so good to stretch my legs & run. I hadda kinda readjust my nose to sniff out the pathways & leave peemail for all my friends & acquaintances saying OpalK9 is back.
Next day, we took our usual walkies to GrandSires. He enjoyed a special breakfast of hotcakes & all the essential accessories the ordinarily accompany such a repast. He was sooooooo full he saved the honey cured sausages for me. Yum.
Another day we went on todolly long walkies to Starbucks . . . where we haven’t been in so long it ain’t funny. Starbucks has a particularly peaceful atomosphere for us dogs with such a heavy load of responsibilities. I gotta sit under the table & watch ppl work on their wi-fi laptops. Some are working, others are entertaining themselves quietly. Others are occupying themselves with their Smarty Phones. There are a few people chit-chatting with human companions. Sometimes it difficult to imagine humans could get along in such quiet & civil companionship. I guess if you get only a few together for a brief period of time & they pay enough for their cafe, they won’t wanna mess up the ambiance.
The most exciting walkies of all was todolly outside my realm of experience & todolly blew my mind. We departed GrandSire’s as usual. I thought we were going home as usual but instead of going lefties @ the corner of MegaChurch & freeway intersection, we walked straight, up over the freeway overcrossing. & suddenly there I was . . . looking down on all the cars speeding under me. It was so exciting I didn’t know whether to sit or go blind. It’s a dog’s duty to bark & chase passing cars but how you gonna properly chase cars that are speeding underneath you. I tried barking my loudest looking straight down upon them. They didn’t even honk. I tried approaching from both sides, running up & down on the sidewalk. I tried to get down closer to those cars by running through the weeds & dried grasses that protect the sides of the freeway but no luck. Big fences guard the embankments. So cars you’re safe for now. It was a dizzifying & exciting & challenging experience & I shan’t forget it soon. In the meantime, I’m gonna devote some time & consideration as to how to properly herd those freeway cars. OpalK9 OTJ
