We had the first casualty yesterday
Last week on Thursday I left little Charlie with my daughter. When I came back home from work, on my question “How was your day” the answer was … let’s say very close to emotional breakdown, had to sent her out to cool off and pick up some dinner. She was close to tears, Charlie did not let her study for exams, she could be the OP of any of these “help, my pup driving me crazy” threads in Puppy section. On the top of it she slipped on the ice in the back yard and fell twice. So I left them alone yesterday again. The traffic was very slow, came home an half an hour later than usual. I could see paw prints at the front yard and found two happy kids in the house. On the same question “How was your day” she said great, we played, went for walk, had a fun and I was able to study. I asked “was he better today”, she said “no, but I was better prepared, I knew what to expect this time. And she said Charlie was at the front door crying around the time when I usually come back. Then I told her how many young girls I met on this forum, having dogs with them in apartments, going to university and working part time with no help from others. She just said wow, they must be really special.
Anyway, we had the first casualty yesterday, one of these stuffless toys lost its voice forever. We use the squeaker now as “weapon of destruction”.
I took little Charlie for short walk this morning before I left, it was just -6C, feels like “-13C” with wind. There were 4 big snow cleaning machines on the street in front of our house, very loud noise made me want to go back to the house, but Charlie kept pulling closer to them, like “guys, what’re you doin’, I wanna have some fun too”. Needless to say our “weapon of destruction” was rested for good.
