Monkey has added a couple of things to his ‘I’m scared of this as well' list.
On today’s walk he reinforced his dislike of transit vans and added a bus shelter – just the one so far – and wheelie bins.
He also decided that the swooshing sound a car tyre makes when it goes over a wet patch on the road – not a puddle – just a wet patch, is enough to make him jump forward.
He also discovered last night that he would like to be Scooby-Doo. Walking on the green in the twilight he moved away from me by a lead’s length – about six feet (two metres) while he was ahead of me I stepped on a twig. You could almost hear the yikes as he jumped up in the air. Luckily he didn’t try to jump into my arms!
Anyway back to today’s additions to the list. The bus shelter we pass most days is open fronted
Today’s evil bus shelter is one we have passed on the opposite side of the road several times without any fuss. However, walking on that side of the road necessitated a run round behind me as we approached it
Wheelie bin day leads to all sorts of shenanigans as some bins are on drives to our left – others are on the edge of the pavement to our right.
If I could get Monkey on skis I swear he could win Gold in the downhill slalom at the Winter Olympics.
