Meredith had to run errands this afternoon and I was stuck in my crate for a long time. When she came back, her hands were full of AH groceries and she was coughing and sounded really sick. We had a brief conversation about the fact that it was high time I went outside for a walk.
M: Listen, Lacey, I don’t feel very well (cough cough) and I need you to wait until Mike gets home from work; he’ll let you out.
L: When is Mike getting home?
M: Well, I don’t know but I just tried to call him at work and there was no answer so he’s probably already left and will be here in less than 15 minutes. Can you wait?
L: I suppose I can wait.
-20 minutes go by-
M: Lacey, that was Mike on the phone and I was mistaken- he is just leaving work now and so it will be another 15 minutes. Sorry about that. Can you wait?
L: (legs crossed) I guess so. But I’m really not happy about it.
M: Sorry, I just don’t feel good right now. Please be patient.
L: Okay. (eats dinner, plays with bone, looks out the window)
-30 minutes go by-
L: If you don’t let me out right now, I’m seriously going to pee on your foot.
M: Alright! I’ll let you out. But we have to compromise. I can’t take you for a walk. You’ll have to just do your stuff right in the parking lot on the leaves.
L: I don’t care! Let me out!
Don’t worry, no feet were peed on tonight. She let me out, I went in the parking lot, and we went back inside. I couldn’t believe how long it was taking Mike to get home. Twenty minutes later he walked in the door. “What happened? Are you okay?,” asked Meredith.
“My bike broke.”
From what I could understand Mike decided to pump up a low tire on his bike but ended up taking the tire apart and losing a piece of it. Bummer! So he rode the bus home. But everything turned out okay because he took me for a nice run-walk and I got to bite the leash!
