About 20 of 6 this evening, King Campbell and I sat out for our favorite corner store.
It’s just a little convenience store, but a beer was in order this fall night, so off we went.
It took us about 20 minutes or so to get there because the King had to stop and take care of his necessary a couple times along the way.
This is, one of the purposes of these walks to our store. There are only certain routes where I allow him to park during traveling in harness, but just as we have to sometimes go, while we are out, so do they, and I do not believe allowing park times while in harness encourages accidents, unless it is done incorrectly, but that’s a post for another day.
Anyhow, once there, I’d first thought I’d buy a bottle of wine. While they don’t have a great choice, I still thought it might be nice.
But, they are no longer selling that, so I settled for a couple coronas and headed back for the house.
I’d bought myself a couple deli sandwiches from a sandwich shop called Jimmy John’s which delivers, and was set for the evening.
On the way back, just as we were working our way around a car parked in the middle of the side-walk, and having to go into the street to avoid it, a lady was coming down the way with a little yipping dog.
Campbell never so much as missed a beat. Did not even look in that yipping dog’s direction.
The lady walking her yipping dog said, “Oh! My what a big dog. I’ll cross over out of your way.” Still Campbell had taken no notice of the very loud obnoxious thing, and once we were passed the obstacle and back onto the walk, the woman said, “Oh he’s scaring my baby.”
I could keep quiet no longer. I said, “Ma’am, first off my dog has not even paid your loud-mouthed brat any mind, and second, he wouldn’t hurt him if he did. He is busy doing his job and could care less. Now you have a great night and blessid be.”
I know I should’ve kept quiet and kept going but Good Grief! She pissed me off.
Anyhow, we’re back home with my beer, Campbell had the remainder of his dinner, and is snoozing.
Yall have a great night.
