The other day when I was walking Skelly, it was about 85 degrees and sunny. (YES!) We were walking on the street and just as we were passing somebody's driveway, he stopped dead in his tracks. This is not unusual, he often has to stop and pee. I turned around and was shocked to see him doing much more than peeing right there in the middle of the road.
Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather he drop a stinky load in the street than in somebody's yard. It's just that the middle of the road seemed like a funny place to plant one.
I have not yet trained myself to bring doodoo bags with me on walks and this was the first time I had actually needed one. I nonchalantly glanced around to see that the only possible witness was too far down the road to have noticed.
We reversed direction and headed homeward :)
We were in the final stretch of sidewalk when suddenly he stopped in his tracks again. I turned around and this time he was lying down in some random person's lawn. I could tell he was hot... perhaps he was tired and could continue no longer. I urged him to continue with his walk as he playfully rolled around in these people's grass. I busted out the camera and snapped this little video...
Today was another fantastic day for weather, and off we went right after lunch. We were nearing the home stretch, and Skeletor stopped in his tracks again. Being the scumbag that I am, I was once again doodoo bag-less! I turned around expecting to see horrified neighbors watching as Skelly desecrated their lawn.
What I saw was Skeletor laying in the grass again. The very same grass as last time! I realized that this was the only yard with a big giant shade tree, and that Skelly chose it for that very reason. I breathed a sigh of relief, and snapped a couple of shots on my phone. Case closed!
Skelly's got it made in the shade!
