It was early one morning and mom let me out to do my duty and I just couldnt resist the open door on the Town's Pick Up Truck. The two city workers that were futzing with the sewer lines didn't even see me climb in and look around. When I got in first thing I noticed was that it was a nice truck and it came equipped with free doughnuts...YUMMMM. When the workers started to get back in the truck they seemed surprised to see me. Asked me what I was doing here and Told me to get out! The very nerve of them...well I wasn't leaving those doughnuts so I grabbed one and hunkered down. Guess they got the message because they got in and we went for a ride down to the city yard...and I didn't get out there either.
MEANWHILE at home mom was going bullistic..searching for me. Calling for me. Driving around the neighborhood looking for me.
I meanwhile went on a parts run with the two city guys ...they stopped at MickyD's and bought me a hamburger! YUMMMMMMMMMMM
Meanwhile mom was asking everyone she met if they had seen me. About 4PM that afternoon she spotted a neighbor and told him she was looking for HOBO. the neighbor asked if Hobo was that little dog she had. Yep she said Have you seen him???? The neighbor said he was pretty sure the city workers had him in thier truck. OH NO THOUGHT MOM! Picked up by the city could mean only one thing...I was dead...run over by a car or I was being toted off to the pound. She thanked the neighbor and jumped in the truck and raced off to the city yard.
I was snoozing when mom pulled up so I didn't even hear her asking the city workers if they had me. Didn't even hear them laughing and tell her how I had been the EMPLOYEE of the DAY for the city. How they had tried to get me to come out of the truck and I wouldn't ...how I growled at them if they tried to pick me up when the doors were open and sat happily in thier lap when the doors were closed and the truck was rolling. but I DID HEAR HER WHEN SHE OPENED UP THE TRUCK DOOR AND SAID "HOBO WHAT ARE YOU DOING??" "Well I was enjoying a nice nap till ya woke me up" I said as I stretched and wandered over to her open arms.
I got to admit I liked working for the city but it was nice to go home and relax after such a hard day!
