It would be rough to go it alone!



Two weeks can feel interminable.   Owner is worse than useless.  Curley isn’t into taking me for long walks on his own…oh, he gets the job done but he’d much rather have company plus his job demands he be away from the apartment a lot.  I don’t need much but I’m bored out of my dog-like little mind!


If I sit here long enough she’ll take pity 052on me and get me outside.  It has been two weeks and I’ve heard enough about the boot and the crutches.  Scarlett….Frankly, I don’t give a damn.  

Heaven, I’m in heaven.  Aldo and Tina dropped by take me for a walk.  You have no idea how many meals I’ve saved071 up for a long walk…if you know what I mean.  Tina is in for a surprise.  Hope she has lots and lots and lots of those bags humans like to carry.  You’re going to need them baby! This dog is heading out to let loose and lighten the load.

Well it isn’t Telluride but it sure is pretty. My coat is heavy but I can’t take it off because I’ll freeze to death when I get back home. Evolution has to work on this only sweating through the paws and tongue thing.  I’m a Texas dog no longer.


If you have to live in a neighbourhood in a suburb, this ain’t bad.


You’ll see below I quickly put Tina to work…..that’s why we dogs hire humans to look after us.  We can’t do it ourselves and actually we don’t want to! Besides, she’s so good natured and cheerful I just can’t get too worked up about it.   She works out and does tons of squats just for the heck of it so might as well give her a reason to work those quads and hamstrings that actually does something for the environment.  How “green” of me, eh?

081     119

We hooked up with some other guy and Aldo just had to show off his Olympic time trial results.  I mean the guy is young and fit so of course he can go from zero to sixty in less than a second.  I gave it my best shot but I’m just not as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was…..gee, where are all these quotes coming from.  Obviously been listening to the country station just a tad too much….however it is what it is.


This is an eye test.  How many dogs are in this photo?  Hope you said three.


If you are into Ayervedic Medicine or perhaps want to do a little Transcendental Meditation, we have the temple for you.  This incredibly gorgeous architectural marvel is right smack dab in our neighbourhood.  It may not be your thing but it does add a sense of peace and beauty to the area.  It’s pretty quiet over there; they must meditate really well and often.  Some locals were really terrified and concerned about cults taking over The Woodlands when these guys came to town, but  you’d never know they were here.  Owner thought it took courage on the part of the group to even move to this neck of the woods given the general religious nature of south Texas, however, so far so good for all concerned.  They probably just pretend the other isn’t here.


So on we go with our walk.  I enjoy every second I’m outside.  One thing about heat and humidity is that everything smells richer and more exotic.  The swampy water….sublime.  Rotting vegetation… infusing. It must be such a drag to be a human and not have a tremendous nose.  You think you have everything but guys you miss a lot.  


Now it is time to get back in the car and head home.  I had a great day….in fact owner’s friend took me out several days in a row.  Thanks Tina.  Thanks Aldo.(and a big shout out to Becca too!)  You made my weeks of confinement with Scarlett a lot less painful.  Her stitches come out next week and hopefully we can get back to some semblance of normal.  Oh Lord, I sure hope so.

Just checking that this is really Aldo and that  I’m in the right car. Aldo speaks English, Dutch and some Tamil…so a sniff is my best way of identifying him.  He gets confused sometimes and speaks in the wrong language which truly messes me up.  Yes, you heard it from me  - there are multilingual dogs.


Yup, right car.  Right dog.  See ya later.
