And some fell on stoney ground

The local residents have yet to appreciate my sense of humour.
Imagine the scene when I was out walking Maggie this morning when a guy came out of his house on his mobility scooter to take his dog for a walk.
Or rather the dog led the way on an extendable lead.

I said good morning, and added that some people had Huskies to pull their sleds.
‘Huskies? What?’ came the baffled reply.
So I explained that it was usually a team of huskies pulling sleds, not a dog like his.
‘Oh, yes. I see. I think.’ and he sped off.
I’d found it hysterical that a tiny shih tzu was ‘towing’ him!

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I walk two dogs every day and they tow me all over the place. Often in two different directions. We call them our 40lb wonders. 🙂

    For what it’s worth, I think it’s funny.

  3. They’ll get you eventually…maybe…always remember that we will laugh at your jokes!

  4. I would have laughed, or at least chuckled. As for me, I can’t wait until our fence is up and I only have to walk Puppy Cody once a day instead of 4 times a day. If the fence isn’t up by the time the ground starts freezing over, I’m going to be in huge trouble because the silly dog will pull me right off my feet and down the sidewalk. You’d think by now she would have learned to walk better on leash, but I swear she must have some huskie in her.
