We went out extra early this morning (4 AM) because Duncan drank too much water over night and couldn't wait until 5. So we start out and I sense something is not quite normal as we round the corner at the end of the block. There he was, that black kitty that sometimes sleeps on the door step. He wasn't ready for 2 ferrous, big, tough Scottie boys! We starting the barking and for some reason, Mum wasn't happy about that. The kitty did a Halloween cat back and hissed at us. Mum was holding us back trying to quiet us and she always grabs for Duncan first, cause he has more weight and is still stronger than I am. While she was working on containing him, I was wiggling as fast as I could and I then did the back up, right out of my harness. I was after that cat. He shot back around the corner with me hot in pursuit. There were some flying claws but I managed to duck them. He climbed up a wall and was gone. I came back around the corner to Mum and Duncan and decided that I was inspired by that free spirit, Beenie from the Mounds of Minnesota and I would decide where I was going today. So I started to take the long Weekend walk with Mum hot on my trail. She had secured Duncan way back where we had the incident. I did my best jog, didn't want to leave her in my dust, BOL BOL. Paused a couple of times for privacy please, and then got to the house with the big, barky dog in it. He is so loud you can hear him blocks away. I had to stop and admire his vocalizations. Meanwhile all this way Mum is trying to get me to stop and wait, like we do on leash. Hammy wait, Hammy stop, Hamish McDuff you wait for me, come here Hamster. She was using every name in her book. I was nice enough to let her put the harness back on in front of house while I listened to him bark. We then went back to Duncan and finished our walk. It was fun to make the choices on where to go but it really upset Mum, so maybe I will just stick with her for a while.
Yikes! Be careful, Hammy!!! You don't want to become a SQUISHED Ham and Cheese sandwich!!!!
Yikes! It's a wonder the neighbors didn't call the cops 'cause of all the ruckus you stirred up.
Better stay in that harness from now on.
Think your Momma needs to tighten up that harness.... no way can I slip out of mine....
Oh Hamish, a TRUE terrier adventure! The sights, sounds and smells you must have encounterd! You are good for a couple of months of fine dreams. But a word to the wise, keep Mom in sight. Our silly pawrents worry about us so much!
Mum really tightened up my harness. It's okay to be in but I don't have any wiggle room any more. We saw the black kitty again this morning but Mum had warning this time. Looks like a whole litter of 4 - 5 kitties about 5 months old. Mum thinks they live 2 streets over so we won't be going down that street for a long time! I've had my wanderlust satisfied for a while. So I'll be good, unless the opportunity presents itself.
OMD!! Hammy, yu hab da bestest abbentures E-B-E-R, my fwiend, doe I r pweety shur yur Mum wishes yu wood nod :(
