Meet Abigail, she is staying with us for a week. She is smart, an expert escape artist and a ball full of energy. She watches every move you make and I swear she is memorizing. Is it good to have a dog that is smarter than you? You can literally see the little wheels in her head spinning when she is in the backyard trying to find an escape route. The only look I have ever seen on Scooter's face is "I was thinking of something a minute ago, but now I can't remember what it was now". Needless to say, Pica is none to happy about the situation.
I just gave her a little walk, rather, she walked me. How can those little legs move so quickly (that is what I kept asking myself as she pulled me around the neighborhood). While she sniffed at soiled grass, I got to get a nostril full of summer fragrances - grasses torched by the sun, dank water from the creek, honeysuckle at dusk. I miss walking, looking into bright windows at night and imagining what that room looks like, the smells, the sunset, my neighborhood. Maybe Abigail and I will make that a habit all week.
