Yesterday however, Mummy and Daddy came back home much later than usual, all tired and ‘headachey’. We were very disappointed. 'There goes our special walk', we thought. We went and lay down, with the saddest look on our faces.
Those looks always win. Headache or no headache.
Mummy laughed and we knew we were going out after all!
‘Let’s go, Darlings’, was all we needed! And before she could get out of the door, we were at the gate!
We didn’t go any place far, just to the fields near our home. But it was a very special walk.
The temperatures were considerably down, the air smelt fresh, there was a lovely wind blowing. It was a perfect evening to run as much as you like without worrying about the heat.
We had real fun.
And then suddenly it happened! There was a beautiful orange glow in the sky that lit up everything around us. And in the distance, on the horizon, we saw the dark clouds approaching. Even as we watched, we saw a strange grey vertical shadow in the sky, moving towards us.
Mummy and Daddy seemed very excited to see it.
‘Look, Bud-Gin,that is the rain literally coming towards us!’
We hadn’t seen something like that before, but it looked very exciting!
Mummy felt really really disappointed that she didn’t have a camera with her to catch this lovely scene.
We don’t mind the rain. But the lightening and growling thunder is not something we like very much. We saw the flashes of lightening at a distance.
Now, whoever said ‘Light travels faster than sound didn’t have to know much Physics, did he?’ Even we know the angry growls can’t be far away when we see those flashes.
We jumped up into the car, ready to go back home. Mummy found that rather amusing, because normally we are not very keen to return from a walk.
As we reached our gates, the rain reached us.
We haven't deciphered why but Mummy behaves very funnily at any given opportunity to get wet in the rain! We cocked our heads and stared at her!
She kept calling for us to get down from the car. She was gladly getting wet, looking skywards, arms outstretched! We peered out of the open window and felt the drops on our noses. The rain was pretty heavy and cut into our fur.
No Mummy, we are not so very enthusiastic about the idea.
Mummy laughed. Sometimes we really crack her up, the way we resolutely put across our mind. On any given day, we'd rush her to open the car door so we can beat her at getting down from the car. And here we were, refusing to get down.
But then we just didn’t want to get wet.
Finally she got the idea and unlocked the front door. We both rushed in, with Daddy following suit.
We didn’t know there was something else waiting for us, something we enjoyed very much.
There were shopping bags for us to check out! So that is the reason Mummy and daddy came back late. And guess what they contained…?
NOMMIES and loads of stuff, JuSt for us!
(We were'nt about to pose for Ginger's kibble)
(OK, I see u got the flavour right. Meat and rice,just what I like)
(Aww Mummy, will u stop that please and give us some Nommies?)
(Daddy, PLEASE will u help?)
(NOM NOM NOM!)
(Nomm NOMM NOM!)
Pee Ess: There has to be an after-effect to getting wet in that torrential rain, added to working overtime. Mummy had a splitting headache.
Not that she learns from her mistakes.
Result: We missed our Saturday post.
Sunday diary: Mummy went on a ‘clean-up the house’ spree.
1.The house smells flowery!
2. Mummy has that smug look on her face!
3. We missed our Sunday post too!
What can two Labra-Dawgs do?
We are very, very sorry to learn just sometime back that MAXDOG has left us. It is difficult to find words to say what you feel at times like these....
Max, though it is painful for us, we would like to tell you that we are glad you can no longer feel any earthly pain. We will always remember you.
