Short Thoughts (41)

Scruff didn’t seem to want to go out that day.

But he clipped on the lead anwyay.

“Come on, old boy. Time to go to the shops”.

Walking around town, the small terrier got attention.

And when he came out of the shops, people would be stroking old Scruff.

Then he got to talk to them too.

If only for a moment.

  1. There is a double whammy in retirement. You no longer have coworkers with whom to communicate and it is the time when what few friends one has very inconveniently die., In America, we often exacerbate it by moving to a place where we know no one. Warmest regards, Theo

    1. I picked him up when he slipped and broke his wrist. We looked after the dog while he had the wrist put in plaster, and he collected it later. He told me he had a dog so that people would talk to him. It was sad to hear that.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I once frequented an antique mall. An elderly gentleman used his chihuahua to urge people into his booth and to start a conversation. I never knew for sure if he was just lonely or a marketing genius.

    1. I picked him up when he slipped and broke his wrist, and ignored the rules about taking dogs in the ambulance. Then after he was dropped off at hospital, we took Scruff back to the ambulance station, and shut him in the TV room with a bowl of water. He walked round to collect the dog later, his wrist in plaster. 🙂
      Best wishes, Pete.
