Monday Mischief: Pack Walk

I've changed my mind I don't want to go for a walk after all.
Well, I guess I am going to be doing a regular Monday Mischief blog now. I seem to be getting into a bit of trouble now and then. And it usually is connected with mom taking me for walks. I am a lucky city dog, I get lots of walks, usually to our big park. Mom takes me in the morning where I get to run around off leash, chasing squirrels, playing with pals, and getting into all sorts of things. Then in the afternoon I start to give mom my "look" by 2 p.m. and she'll say "okay" and off we go, to the park again.

This is pretty much the normal routine, which I am very used to. But the problem has been on the weekend. We go through the same look, time, everything but when we get outside I won't cooperate, so she says. I'll sit down, want to go out the front gate, only to come back in, roll around in the grass with the warm Spring sunshine, anything to give her the message that I am not going. She tries all sorts of tricks to get me to go, petting and sweet talking, pulling my leash, and this one, she walks out the back gate and leaves me behind! When I don't follow I hear her say "fine!" and we go back inside. Well, on Sunday, just when I thought I was going back inside, she did without me! When she comes back I hear, DAD!! Yay, a pack walk! I got so excited, wagging my tail, going in circles. I love to walk with mom and dad, usually when we do we go to the store or something, then one of them goes inside without me, which I don't like.

I think I'll sun myself instead of going for a walk.
We didn't walk to the park, but we did go a few blocks around our nice neighborhood on a very warm Spring day. I was very happy! Do you think mom figured out the reason I won't go for a walk on weekend afternoons, the days that dad is home, is because I don't want to leave my pack? You think? #WINNING!
