funny walk with my cat and dogs
Monday, October 12, 2009
I went for my walk/run today. I tried to slip out without the dogs knowing. I have one dog and my neighbor has two dogs. They are all real pals. If they are aware that I am going for my walk, they join me. I try not to walk near the busier road when they are with me. Today I was walking down my driveway, which is 1/4 mile long. I got half way down and here comes the dogs. Oh, well. I walk to the right rather than left so as to avoid traffic. I notice that my cat is running right along with the dogs to follow me. I thought he would give up once I got down to the mailbox. No, I look back and here are three dogs and a cat following me. I ran up the hill thinking that if he did not see me, he would turn around and go home. Then I hear this meowing. I look back and my neighbors old dog and my cat and following behind me. The dogs are all big dogs and here is my cat running right in the pack of them, meowing for me to slow down. It was so funny. However, I got to a field and the farmer was harvesting his corn with the combine. I was getting worried. By this time, I am a mile away from home, few trees around. I was worried that if another dog, coyote, etc came along, my cat had no where to hide. The dogs were afraid of the combine so they were all next to me and leaning in to me. They were sure I would protect them from that big combine. I tried to pick up my cat--he wanted nothing to do with that. He wanted to be down with the dogs, playing with them, following me. So I decided to walk back home. He followed me back. He and the old dog laid down together and I was able to finish my run without the cat.
