So . . . like . . . I think I’ve been remiss in My Purpose & been sailing along, resting on my Old Lorals of late. But I’m back in the groove again. See it had been such a long time that I hadda use my Guide & Assist skills to Guide & Assist Mymi, my #1 Human Partner.
& then 1 HD, Mymi & me we went for our usual Walkies. Kinda slowly meandering around our Neighborhood & riding around the community for longer trips. My only task was to watch out for Bad Guys in our car, when Mymi parked under a shade tree & went to do chores & errands in 1 store or another.
& then I got my Comeuppance! Big Time. See it happened like this. After that last Walkies, near the beginning of this very HM, Mymi left with Doc, which isn’t such an unusual phenomenon. But then she didn’t return to Our Domain in time to prepare my evening meal. Instead My Auntie Judy arrived & prepared my repast . . . K9 Food, Canned & Kibble, Rice & Cottage Cheese. Yum! Top that off with some Nanner Chips & Good Bone to chew on and I’m set for the night. My Auntie Judy stays for a while after said repast but she didn’t zackly ‘splain why she was here & Mymi not. So it was an Overnight & then Auntie Judy returned to visit, prepare my breakfast & go Walkies. I was really getting confused.
Then later that same day, Mymi returned with Doc. She returned doing the Old Slow Walk using GrandSire’s 3rd Leg & wearing a collar similar to mine only bigger & less comfortable looking. Thus began my Refresher Course on Guiding & Assisting.
Every morning since then, she’s been wearing the collar (during the daytime) & using the 3rd leg like a pro. Me n Auntie Judy did our ritual Walkies for a few days until Inspiration struck Mymi. Being struck by Inspiration isn’t so bad. Inspiration doesn’t have a serious, dangerous clout.
Anyhoo, since the striking of Inspiration, Auntie Judy has been Walkiesing me & Mymi. Mymi wearing the collar & using the 3rd Leg. I’ve hadda brush up those old Guide & Assist skills to make sure 1 & all accomplish our trip successfully. Avoiding pitfalls, uneven sidewalks & various poop deposits left along the way. Honestly some Humans don’t seem to appreciate that there is no Poop Fairy. Never was. & they should be good & responsible K9 Partners & place deposits in the proper receptacle.
We’re slowly improving since that day when Mymi came home all wrapped up. Today Mymi even left the 3rd Leg at Our Domain & she didn’t do too bad. She kept up with Me n Auntie Judy admirably.
I think it’s gonna be a short while before Mymi can throw the collar under the bus. & I’m all set to continue in the Guide & Assist mode for a while longer.
