It’s that time again for my perturbed pets and their haughty hijinks!
It’s my furry family’s weekly tirade of real and perceived angst.
OK, Rumpy time for a walk! He’s so excited! So on goes the harness and leash. Poop bags? Check. Cookies in my pocket? Check. Keys, phone, glasses? Check. Check. And Check. We’re out the door, door checked that it’s locked. Down the steps. Rumpy pees and…… He wants to go back inside. I beg. I […]
