The nice folks at the boarding place gave me a good bath just before Bob picked me up yesterday, but they didn’t brush me. Consequently, I had almost a week’s worth of extra fur. When Bob brushed me this morning, he said that it looked like the gerbil circus had come to town. (See Day 24.)
I got to go to the mall today, and…well…maybe I’d better back up and tell you the whole story.
Ya see, I’ve been kinda upset ‘cuz I thought Bob and Tony had abandoned me while they went to Arizona. In fact, I was so stressed out that I had an upset tummy and had diarrhea all day yesterday. Early this morning, I tried to wake the guys to let them know that I needed to go out, but it was too late, and I ended up making a mess on the living room floor. So, Bob went to the store and rented one of those carpet cleaning machines.
While the floor was drying, we decided to get some lunch and cruise the mall. Bob said I did great. At first, I pulled a little too much at the leash, but once I got the hang of it, I kept a nice, comfortable pace, and I didn’t let anybody or anything distract me. Bob said it was good practice for our trip back East. Oh, and that’s another thing….
I was upset with Bob because he promised to take me on a trip in the big truck, the train, and the airplane. When he and Tony went off to Arizona, I thought that Bob had reneged on his promise. It turns out that they are two separate trips. The trip back East doesn’t start until next week. The whole thing was a big misunderstanding.
I think Bob might need to work on his communication skills. I mean, I know he got a degree in communication, but Jeepers, that was in the last millennium—long before I was even born. Maybe he needs a refresher course.
