But now that Mitch is here it's more of a circus atmosphere! Mom and dad still do the same things but mom has to take Mitch out to do pee and poo before she does dishes and naturally after he's "empty" he has loads more energy to terrorize me and race through the house grabbing stuff as he goes.
This slows down the whole getting-ready-for-walkie process and I don't like it at all!
I haven't been able to wear a bandana since you-know-who arrived because mom is sure that Mitch will yank and pull and make me mad so she doesn't even want to go there!
FINALLY we're able to set off!
Here we are just starting out. Mitch already has someone's dirty old sock in his mouth! He's absolutely disgusting! He picks up everything along the way -bottles, banana peels, smashed cigarette packages, sticks, pinecones, worms - you name it and he'll find it!
He likes to speed up so he can show off to mom and I who are pretty much always out in the lead! Yea right! We really want to see your latest catch!
He got tired of carrying the old sock after about a quarter of a mile and dropped it but his mouth didn't stay empty for long!
We came across this - two beer cans! One was smushed and the other one looked like someone had just discarded it! Mitch is trying to decide which one he wants to carry home! ewwwwwwwwww!
I can tell you that he didn't learn any of these bad habits from me! Dad thinks that the neighborbood should pay him for all the clean up he's doing! The problem is that he'll pick up a beer can and carry it for awhile and then drop it in someone else's yard - probably a non-drinker! hehehehehe
At this point we're in front of some little girl's house that's waiting for the school bus to pick her up! Can you imagine what she's thinking when she spots Mitch with a Bud in his mouth!
He then decides to drop the can and start nipping at me! Can't a girl even enjoy her walkie! OMG the things I have to put up with!
It wasn't long before he found another can to embarrass me with! Look at him! How mortifying it is for me to be seen with this rat picker!
Ahhhhhhhhhh finally - some great smells to sniff and Mitch is acting quite normal for once!
Until next time.............
Love ya lots,
