Happy Friday! Well, I won’t have a picture to show you of what my blog is about today because my walk with Mom was IN THE DARK!
Yep – we haven’t done this in a long time but I decided to ask yesterday morning if she would pretty please put my harness on and take me outside while it was still dark and Dad was still
I don’t often ask anymore because we have that cat that visits us fairly regularly named “Stevie” who sometimes is outside in the mornings and she and I don’t exactly get along well. She probably just wants to play with me but sometimes she jumps on me and it scares me SOOOOOOOO if I see her out there, I don’t ask to go. Well this morning she was NOT out there!
I went to the basement door and gave Mom “THE LOOK” after she’d finished cleaning my litter box for me. She keeps my harness and leash right by the door and I help her to put it on me – I lift my paws up one at a time so she can put the harness on and snap on the leash…..Oh I just get SO excited! The door opens, she turns on the light so we can see, and out we go into the dark……..
I had a bit of a nibble on the grass – even though Mom mowed a couple of days ago there’s always a few spots (and of course I know where they are!) where she can’t get the mower so that’s where I go for a munch.
Then we slowly started around the side of the house…..I guess I wasn’t moving fast enough for her (well, it was starting to rain a little bit and I wasn’t in a hurry) so she picked me up in her arms and we kept walking. She talked to me the whole time and I purred and purred back……it was nice for her to hold me and keep me nice and warm because it was a little bit coolish! We didn’t see any other animals but the birds were just starting to wake up and make some noise in the big leyland cypress trees.
Finally we got to the back yard and I started to squirm a bit in Mom’s arms because I wanted her to put me down…….why? Well because it’s a big game we play as to who can get to the basement door the fastest!!!
She put me down and let go of my leash and WHAMMO – fast as a cheetah I ran to the door and beat her! YAY SAMMY!
I may be old but I’m still fast………….when I wanna be!
