Yesterday Mom let me sleep in.
When I finally meandered outside it was close to sunset.
After Mom made me go inside,
I sulked on my carpet piece.
I sulked on a stool.
I REALLY sulked on a stool.
All I wanted was to go back outside.
Finally I heard the sound of my harness.
I ran to the door, let Mom put the harness on me,
and off we went!
I didn't really pay attention to which harness Mom
had put on me.
I probably should have.
It wasn't until well into my nighttime recon,
when Daddy came outside, that it dawned on me.
I was wearing my car harness.
Before I knew it we were getting into the car.
We drove to a store.
While Daddy went into the building,
Mom and I wandered around outside.
It was a different nighttime recon, that's for sure!
So many strange scents.
I enjoyed the car ride home, too.
Usually, when we get home after a car ride,
I can't wait to get out of the car and run to the front door.
Not this time.
This time I was reluctant to get out of the car.
Eventually, however, I thought I might continue
the recon of my own territory.
After getting out of the car and wandering a few
feet in one direction, I changed my mind.
I guess I wanted to go home after all.
It did feel nice to get the harness off.
It also felt nice to get some food in my belly.
After that I returned to my carpet piece;
then the stool again.
This time I wasn't sulking about wanting to go outside.
This time I wanted something different.
So, as soon as Daddy vacated the good chair,
I took it!
I do believe I have earned my comfort.
It's not like the humans go around making sure
my territory is safe.
