Yesterday the office wasn't as chaotic as the day before.
I was uneasy at first, so Mom had to call me out
from my new favorite office hiding place.
After that I relaxed and wandered into
Nice Lady 2's office.
When it was time to go home,
I went casually.
Mom switched out my harness for the collar
and I went back outside.
It was a nice day.
At first I was content to stay on the patio;
then I moved to the sidewalk to look
for Upstairs Calico.
Apparently Upstairs Calico was looking for
me as well.
|"Hi, Upstairs Calico. You're looking nice today."|
After that, Mom left the house for
a few hours.
When she returned, she promised
that she would take me on a nighttime walk
when Daddy got home.
He didn't get home until very late!
I had given up hope.
Then it happened.
Mom put the harness on me.
Well, it wasn't the usual harness.
It was one I hadn't worn in a very long time.
I used to slip out of it, but Mom said
I had grown.
I do like it better.
It's more comfortable in some places and
doesn't pull on my ears when Mom goes to take it off.
As soon as the leash was attached I moved closer to the door.
We didn't walk for very long, but that's O.K.
I was pretty content for the rest of the night.
I even got to enjoy my favorite treat.
Drinking glass condensation.
