earlier this evening, i was sitting here at the computer, engrossed in the reading of emails, with the back door open to let in the breeze. the first thing i heard was the rattling of tags, which i didn’t really process until the very large yellow lab walked right in the door. now, there was nothing at all threatening about this dog’s manner, but the truth is he startled me pretty badly and i screamed. poor fella took off like a shot, and i felt so bad afterward, i mean, he was probably having a really bad day, and there i went and made it worse. i should have invited him in for a snack and checked his tags, maybe called his owner or at least gave him a place to hang out while i tried to find who he belonged to. i wish i wasn’t such a spazz like that.
ok, so i have some beach/kid pictures, it was a beautiful day. here’s my son scaring his mommy. he was very serious about crawling in the sand. here he goes, up the slide. and there was an interesting rock.
[sigh] i just keep feeling sorry for that poor, friendly doggie that i scared so badly. i hope he’s ok.
