Mostly True Memoirs
DID WE LEARN ANY MEANINGFUL LESSONS FROM THIS ILL-ADVISED INCIDENT?
She was the Best Dog Ever, but she wasn’t perfect.
She refused to play with toys.
She was very cute, and she was very snuggly, but she never once played ball.
The Grown Son is thrilled that Blue loves to play fetch.
She is also learning to play tug-of-war with her rope toy.
At first, she would give it up easily when we tugged on it.
Now she is learning about the fun of hanging on.
Last night the Grown Son pulled a prank on Blue.
He snuck down the darkened hallway and jumped out at her.
Oh goodness, that was an ill-advised incident.
It did not end well.
Blue was so surprised that she peed herself.
The Grown Son spent the rest of the evening snuggling her to apologize.
He couldn’t stop laughing about her reaction, but he felt horrible about scaring her.
Lesson learned – Blue is not ready for pranks.
Lesson learned – The person who scares the pee out of the dog has to clean it up.
Lesson learned – Blue forgave the Grown Son and all is well.
