We met Joe the other day. Joe thinks he is cool dog. Joe came to us as a stray and never left. Joe thinks that it is our privilege for us to live with him. We let Joe think whatever he wants because it doesn’t pay to argue with him. He always wins. Joe is very strong willed, opinionated and basically a punk.
I drive our youngins to school every day. Joe feels it is necessary to go along to make sure that I drop them off at the right school. He worries about these things since he knows how absent minded I am. I have only ever driven past the school once or twice…this year.
Joe has two goons that he hangs with. Occasionally, Joe lets them ride along too. Little John is his best bud. Joe knows that John always has his back if things go down wrong. Because you know how those little thugs can handle all the stuff that goes down in “Dog world.” Besides, rumor has it that John knows hang dogs in the dog mafia. It’s never been proven, just rumor.
Comet is another dog buddy. (He was named that when we rescued him and he is too stupid to try to change it.) Joe hangs out with Comet because I know he feels sorry for him, with his stupidness problem. Seriously, he is a really stupid dog. We still like him though. He is a good dog, just stupid.
But I think I have finally figured out why Joe rides along every morning. I’m pretty sure that he has been watching and learning all the rules of the road, so Joe and his goons can go joy riding in my van. That’s what I think.
An after thought… as I accept this award for successfully completing my third blog with the photos where I want them, I would like to thank the little people in blog land…and that would be Linda. In all seriousness, thank you so much, Linda!
And my second after thought, please don’t judge me for my wheels. Pretty awesome, isn’t it? It has been christened the “Love Machine.” Don’t ask. Anyway, the Love Machine hauls my youngins’, the dogs, the occasional cat that accidently gets taken along, 4-H animals, hay, straw, junk, etc. You get the idea. It definitely is not a green vehicle but it sure is a sweet ride…if it only had heat.
