Continuing my barks about the road trip...
One night, there was quite a thunder storm! Murphy didn't have much ado about it, but I went to the window and growled and barked at all the racket out there. I think I was trying to scare the storm away, so that I could go outside...
Well, the next morning the weather was nice again, so I guess my barking was effective!
I went for a very long walk with growlmy, auntie , but not Murphy! Auntie says that 5 miles was too long a walk for his short legs, BOL! It was also more than twice as long as I usually walk...At least it wasn't hot! Growlmy did take water for me so I had a couple of drinking breaks! slurp - slurp!
Along the way we encountered some traffic lights with timers that made some kind of noise. My tail went down, down, down! And I tried to put on the breaks! BOL! I was scared of that noise. So eventually growlmy encouraged me to keep on..and when the noise was out of earshot, my tail went back up again! Like a barometer!
There were also some flags flapping on tall poles, plastic pennant types. They make quite a buzzing sound when the wind gets at them, and it was quite windy that day! So down went my tail again...( When I was a puppy, I got spooked by something like that, and I have not liked those things ever since...)
About 1/2 way around growlmy had to make a pit stop...so she handed me over to auntie. I didn't see that because I was busy sniffing and communicating doggy stuff on some bushes...
All of a sudden I realized she had abandoned me! Hey! Auntie is not my boss! She said to growlmy later, that I was looking to see where she might have gone, with a very worried and concerned look on my face!She tried to walk on a bit, but I kept looking back and checking to see if growlmy was coming back...and sure enough...I saw her in the distance...crossing back to our side of the road...and my pleasure meter started its rotors going...then I danced for joy! Growlmy was not gone forever!
When we got back home, Murphy was waiting there to hear all about it! Woof!
I sure didn't mind at all when growlmy left with auntie to go somewhere else for a while...I just went and had a great long nap! BOL!!
Wow Jack - that sounds like a really interesting trip! I'm glad you had such an interesting time, and so glad you came to see that your growlmy wouldn't ever abandon you! xoxoxoxo
I'm always afraid of getting abandoned when we go on road trips and someone goes in the bathroom. I'm afraid they're gonna sneak off and leave me!
