Tony’s sister Ro called this morning. After chatting with her, Tony said, “Biscuit, Ro sends her love.” Then, he added, “Oh, yeah, she said to say hi to you too, Bob”—to which Bob replied, “Ah, it has always been my life’s ambition to be a supreme afterthought.” I love Bob—I truly do—but sometimes he’s just plain weird.
I was so good today that I almost got whiplash from trying to pat myself on the back. Bob and Tony hired someone to come in and clean the carpets. (Apparently, SOME-BOD-Y has been peeing on the carpet. I told Bob he should get some Depends!) So, this guy comes to clean the carpets, and even though he left the front door open while he was setting up, I didn’t run out once. Then, when Bob and I got ready to leave so that the guy could do his work, I ran down the stairs, but I didn’t run away. Oh, yeah, I did run around a bit, but I didn’t go far, and when Bob called me, I ran right back to him.
We had to vacate the apartment for several hours to let the carpets dry, so Bob and I went to the mall to get out of the heat. This was my first time in the mall, and I was the center of attention. We walked the full length of the mall and back, and everybody wanted to stop and pet me. Of course, I wore my Service Dog vest, and nobody even questioned my being in the mall, not even the security guard we passed along the way. We didn’t go inside any of the stores, but Bob did order a smoothie from one of the stands in the food court. I sat on the floor at the counter and didn’t budge, not even when other people came up to the counter to get their hot food. Bob was very proud of me.
Tony and Bob often get together with their buddies for happy hour at the Green Door on Fridays, so Bob took me there from the mall. Once again, everyone stared, but no one questioned my being there. I like going out with Bob.
