As many of you know by now, Maddie is a creature of habit. OK, in fairness, so am I, but this isn’t about me. When we walk, we always go to the nearby parks, but once there, we vary the routine based on time, temperature and the number of people or, worst case, the crew from Public Works. Sometimes, we have to switch sides of the street to avoid people and other dogs. Sometimes, we simply can’t enter one park or the other because work is being performed. When this happens – when we have to skip a day visiting a section – we have to refamiliarize ourselves.
Maddie sniffs. She sniffs the old stuff, the new stuff, the place on the grass where there used to be stuff and the stuff that has blown up against the fence. She also checks the “message boards,” you know, the places where every other dog has made a deposit. Usually, these just get a quick sniff, sometimes, she wants to linger. The photo below prompted this week’s one-liner.
“I don’t mind you catching up, but did someone write a short story?”
