I’m Not Like That!
Gretchen says I am just like Gemma, but I beg to differ. She says that the way Gemma behaves with me (pestering, poking, biting, growling, jumping up on me) is exactly how I am with Monty. I asked for evidence and this is all she could produce. You be the judge…
Gretchen’s behind me as I type. “But who pokes him in the neck? Who bites at his chin? Who irritates and instigates every game of chase?”
I plead the 5th.
After our romp at the park, we rested a bit before heading up north to meet Jasper. I was really excited to meet him because Gretchen really likes him and she says he’s very sweet. She was definitely right about that!
Gretchen told me that Jasper is a serious dog, but he was all smiles when we met at his house and then went for a walk. By the time we got to the tennis courts in his neighborhood, he was thrilled, chewing on one of my orange and blue balls like a champ!
And when it was time for a little treat…he was all over that!
He even had the patience to pose with us despite the fact that another dog was playing in the field just outside the tennis courts!
He liked Monty best of all…they’re about the same size though Jasper is definitely beefier!
Our walk even took us to a few new places. First, a pet store where we each got a small cookie and then to a place that smelled divine! Molly Moon’s Ice Cream Shop. We waited outside while Gretchen ordered up a Coconut Chunk on a waffle cone.
She didn’t even share! And that’s a dog on the store’s sign…Molly Moon is a dog so we should at least get a lick of that ice cream!
Jasper was sad to see us go and we were a bit sad to leave, but we needed our lunch and a nap before we headed up to the groomer to pick up Oshi and Perrito…
Yep, that’s them…the former carpet samples on a leash. Amazing.
Oshi and Perrito went to the same “spa” Monty and I go to. I think they liked it there because they got to play with lots of friends before and after their grooming!
Lillianna and Claudio worked on them (though that’s not one of the boys in the picture).
And then they walked home looking frisky and spry in their new hairdos!
It was a beautiful day today and despite what Gretchen thinks of me, I am a patient gentleman who plays well with others!
Really, I do!
