Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the rather small purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you the news of the day. Which isn’t really much. You may remember me from such posts as “The Pine Cone Chronicles”, to name just one other cone-related post.
Here I am in an utterly humiliating pose. You can see that I’m feeling much better, though.Guess how easy it was for the guy I live with to put those shorts on me? He now has a saying, “like putting shorts on a border collie”, which he says is like trying to brush the teeth of a crocodile. He’s never tried that, but it probably fits.
Which the shorts didn’t, and so they didn’t stay on very long. The way I saw it, considering the amount of time it took him to get the shorts on me, compared to how easily they came off, he would have saved himself a lot of time just by not doing it at all.
Of course I refused to actually pose with them on. You would have, too.
The only other thing I have, since most of the day was spent trying to get a pair of shorts on me, is what happened this afternoon.
And then it stopped, and now it’s really cool inside the house. And then it started again. I didn’t realize that all it ever did was rain, but then, as you know, I’m kind of new here.
I guess I’ll let you go. Until next time, then.
