You heard me. S L A C K E R .
First NO PARK LAST WEEKEND. Why? I have no idea. Seems someone was afraid of getting a little wet. (Hint - NOT ME). That was the excuse for Saturday - oh and Sunday was Mother's Day - and she thought I "let her" sleep in as some grand gesture of love and thanks. DO YOU KNOW ME....AT ALL.
I slept in because SHE didn't wake me up.
Well this weekend we did make it to Central Park.
But SOMEONE (again - NOT ME) forgot to charge up the camera.
TO TOP IT OFF I GOT IN TROUBLE AT THE PARK.
Apparently - the nice big lawn that we love to romp on is a "family lawn." This means dogs must be on leash at all times. HUH! A Park Employee was stationed on the lawn to make sure all of us 4-legged ones were tethered. Leashed. Tortured.
Some ridiculous notion that people bring their kids and spread their blankets on the lawn later in the day so they don't want "dog messes" on said lawn.
EXCEPT HERE'S THE STUPID PART (yes - I used the word STUPID)...
I can still be on the lawn - I just have to be on leash.
Now if the poor man understood "D O G" I would have told him
(in no uncertain terms if you get my drift) :
#1 - I am Mom's FAMILY. So I BELONG ON THE FAMILY LAWN.
#2 - It was well before 9am - and I do believe I make the rules before 9am!
#3 - We (Mom) ALWAYS picks up after me - and what is the difference in I'm on leash or off.
If a girl's got to go...A GIRL'S GOT TO GO!
Due's Mom did a good job trying to translate for me and defend our case - but the Park Employee really didn't care.
This is a shot from a few weeks ago of us enjoying ourselves on the
I know. I know. I don't own the Park. I'm not saying I have to have it all to myself. I'm willing to share.
And I'm all for following the rules and being a responsible canine citizen. It just makes me crazy when the "rules" are silly.
OK. Stepping off my soap box now.
