Yo ho ho. Elroy here. Holy moly I have to tell you about a super close call we had yesterday. It was so close, her highness’ heart was a-pounding.
We got up a little late yesterday. It was almost 6 AM! We’ve been getting up early lately to go for our walks before it gets too warm outside.
As we walked up the driveway, her highness appeared to be deep in thought. Probably thinking which side of the couch she would plant herself on when we got home. That’s my idea of a joke. I’m pretty funny.
Anyway, I was walking on her left side and the Boss was on her right. Her highness was looking down. Suddenly I stopped. And her highness finally woke up. There, not 8 feet away, right on the edge of the driveway was a porcupine. I mean you could look in his eyes! The Boss, for some reason hadn’t noticed him either – but once he did, the happy shouting began. OK maybe it wasn’t so happy. Her highness held on tightly to our leashes and prayed the fastest prayer ever as Mr. Needles turned, ran down the edge of the driveway and into the woods.
Her highness’ heart was pounding so hard I could hear it! Even over the Boss’ shouting. You can be sure her highness will be paying more attention now in the morning. And definitely at night!
We had another lazy day yesterday. It was too hot to go out on the deck, and even when evening came and her highness tried to get us to play a bit of fetch, the Boss brought the toy once and then headed back for the door. I actually brought the toy back FOUR times, and then I wanted to go in too. We prefer to situate ourselves in front of one of the many fans throughout the house. I haven’t been swimming yet. Maybe today….
Have a good one. Peace and paws up. Stay safe.
