Well here we are on the second day of October. It was actually nice out again so Mom took me outside. I hung out around the deck while she went around to the shed to pick peppers.
When she was done she came back over to me.
I was stretching my leash out trying to get around to the south side of the deck.
So she asked if I wanted to take a walk.
She didn’t have to ask me twice. I am a slow walker though. I like to stop and smell things even if it is just the breeze in my face. The breeze can carry so many different smells. I love the breeze in my face. Now breezes are just fine for sniffing, but not those gusts or straight winds that try to blow the fur right off my back. Nope, don’t like that!
This is a video of my walk it is about 4 minutes long.
So even though on some sunny days I beg Mom to take me out, she says, “Sorry Bug Bug(one of the many of my nicknames), it is super windy today. If it is nice tomorrow I will take you out.”
Well today it is sunny out. I have begged Mom to go outside. It must not be too windy today. She says” I will take you out after Nick goes to work and I get Dad up. I don’t think you would like to go out right now. The sun is melting the frost from last night so it is wet. You would not like getting your feets wet. ”
So here I lay patiently waiting for Mom to take me out after she does all that. Heck, I might even have time for a nap.
I was just waking up from my nap when I saw Mom walk by.
She was walking over to the entry way closet. Then I heard her open the closet. Well I jumped down off the couch and came waddling to the front door because that meant she was getting my harness and leash out.
She took this 45 second video of her trying to put my harness on one-handed. She had to stop filming after she got the neck part snapped together because she needs both hands to snap the chest part together. She has to hold me up so I am standing on my back feet so she can see what she is doing and make sure she doesn’t pinch my fat roll.
Well it had gotten windy since Mom went out around 7 am, so I only stayed out for 10 minutes. It was long enough to curb my yearning to go outside though.
Now we have reached the 8th and it is cold, cloudy, and wet again just like yesterday. Dad says we are not going to get a temperature much over 40 if at all for the next week. BRRRR! Guess I will be staying in for a while again.
Mom caught me waking up from a nap. She got this awesome photo of me yawning! She was so excited that she got it too!
I got a chance to go out again on the 20th. It was a nice day. Dad was doing some work out on the deck so we had to go out the side door. I went down the steps first and was well in front of Mom. I did not walk in the leaves that were piled in the grassy area by the wind. Mom just walks right through the piles. It made a very loud crackley noise that startled me and made me fluff up my tail! I had to run to get away from that noise.
I just kept on going right on by the deck steps I didn’t stop until I found this small clump of catnip by the wildflowers.
After I was calmed down with some catnip, Mom was able to get me over to the deck steps. I was able to relax even more in my catnip jungle. Only thing is, it has all dried up into brown old sticks. It is ok though you can still rub all over it and get lovely smells from it. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I was drooling like a teething baby. I had a wet spot in my fur under my chin and got my neck strap of my harness pretty wet too.
Until next time, stop and smell the catnip! You know I always do!
