Three is ALWAYS a Crowd!
As I've always said, one is perfect...three is a crowd. Which is why I was disappointed this morning...
You see, whenever the Spokeswoman walks down to the creek, she always takes all three dogs...which is fine, that's the routine. BUT, when every few days when she wants to go down to the town square and make a wide loop through town (the really, really long walk), she just takes ME...no one else...well, sometimes the Littlest Ninja comes with her, especially if she has a piano lesson to go to, but none of the other dogs come along...just the Spokeswoman and I or the Spokeswoman, Littlest Ninja, and I...the way it SHOULD be. This morning, though, things got totally fouled up. The Spokeswoman must have gotten mixed up because she took the Goofy Newfie and the Half-Crazed Border Collie with us when we were going on the LONG walk...the four mile loop through town. Of course the Goofy Newfie was DRAGGING her paws pitifully half-way through the walk...lagging every time we needed to race across a busy intersection...totally aggravating! Meanwhile the Psycho Border Collie kept lurching ahead, trying to get in front of all of us. I, alone, did not deal the Spokeswoman any grief. Even though she had HUMILIATED me by putting the heinous PINCHER collar on me before we ever left the house. When it is just she and I going, I just wear a regular choker collar and, most of the time, no leash at all. I have become quite reliable at heeling off lead. So, it was bad enough to have a leash put on me, like I was some unmannered mutt...but, then to put the PINCHER collar on me...that was just totally unfair and uncalled for! As though I might get unruly with those other two renegades along! If you ask me, it is that sneaky, psychotic border collie that needs a pincher! I think I might get her one for Christmas!
