Today, Dare_Mother decided it was time to do a little of cleaning around the house. She decided to work her way from the bottom up. So, she walked downstairs and began sweeping the front area. Deciding she would leave the door open so she could sweep out the dust, she called Dare_Devil and told her to make sure the Dare_Dog, Cherry, would not run out.
So, Dare_Devil took Cherry in her arms and sat at the computer, browsing the many wonders of the Internet. For the most longest time, Cherry was quiet and still. But, suddenly, she heard the neighbour’s dog barking and without a moment’s warning or hesitation, she called out, “Adios, Dare_Devil!” and leapt out of her arms. Waving her arms like a crazed teenage girl who had snakes crawling up her pants, Dare_Devil ran after Cherry downstairs. Unfortunately, Cherry was out the door before Dare_Mother could stop her.
Being the silly and disobedient dog she is, Cherry would not come back into the house, despite the pleadings and tasty snacks offered by Dare_Devil and Dare_Mother. No, you see, Cherry wanted to be free! She wanted to run around the streets to her heart’s content with the breeze blowing through her fur and her ears flapping in the wind. However, Dare_Devil remembered that the only thing Cherry would respond to was…
So, Dare_Mother turned the car on and Dare_Devil hopped in, in hopes that Cherry would be dumb enough to fall for their ruse. You see, the one thing that Cherry can’t resist is her people going off somewhere in that clunky metal machine without her. She just has to go in and she’ll be damned before they go somewhere without her. Well, they always do, but anyways. So, Dare_Devil left the passenger side door open and sure enough, Cherry was dumb enough to fall for it and hopped in.
Afterwards, much spiteful and dirty looks from Dare_Mother followed and Cherry being forced to sit in her travel cage for ten minutes as punishment for running out. However, Dare_Devil couldn’t bear to see Cherry, who was hanging her head in shame and burying her nose in her front paws in embarrassment, in such a state, so she let her out after five minutes of confinement.
Thank Og we live in suburbia and not downtown because during the day, our streets are basically empty.
Anyone else have strange tales of your dog(s)/pet(s) scaring you half to death and forcing you to look like a fool, even though nobody’s around?
