Today was a warm, sunny day, so Dad issued forth a proclamation that there must be a Family Activity. Little Lad received a call from a friend, so he was not forced to bond with the family.
Mom and Dad loaded up Daisy, Pennie, and Me into the Mini-Van, along with Wee Lass and Middle Lad. We decided that we wanted to try a "new" walk, but it must be "dry" as the ground is very muddy, and it must be nearby, as we did not have a long time. Thereby we decided that despite Oldest Lad being absent from University, as he is spending his Spring Break in drunken debauchery with other males and females of similar age, we would walk around the University.
I quickly recognized that I was at University, where I spent my Foster Days, as Rental Dog Sophie, and began the lookout for Sidewalk Sandwiches. Despite Mom warning Dad to be on the lookout as well; I managed to snatch a few Sidewalk Sandwiches, since Dad was attached to my leash. (It's an open secret that if anyone in the family wants to get away with something -- go through Dad.) Mom was attached to Pennie's leash, and Middle Lad was attached to Daisy's leash.
We quite enjoyed our University Walk, although I discovered that Alpha Pennie has a fear! In the midst of campus, somewhere between the Lindner Building, the "Shoe," and Nippert Stadium was a metal staircase with waffle grated steps. Pennie was NOT happy. Daisy and I trekked won those steps happily, while Pennie sprawled her legs and toes out wide, shaking, and walking slowly. Mom feared that she was going to have to carry Pennie down all those steps. Finally at the bottom, Mom realized that Pennie had caught some of her toenails in the waffle grated steps. No toenails were bent or actually broken, just chipped badly. Mom thinks perhaps if Pennie had just bravely walked down the steps she would have been fine; or perhaps she chipped some nails immediately at the top and then got scared. Regardless, the rest of the walk was without incident, except for having to stop at the CCM building (College-Conservatory of Music) to let Middle Lad and Dad use the restrooms.
Pennie stopped to poop just as a University Police Car drove by, but Mom already had Poop Bag on Hand, so all was good.
The hopes are that Daisy and Alpha Pennie are sufficiently worn out now to sleep well and leave me alone.
