Friends I must confess I’m getting a wee bit annoyed these days. It has to do with walking the four-footed one. I’m not annoyed at walking her, although the extra long sniff sessions can be a bit tedious.
No friends I’m annoyed when I walk her with Beloved. I don’t think the man can walk for a solid minute without telling her to “come”, “let’s go” or “pick your nose up”. Now don’t get me wrong I’ve asked her to come if she’s been sniffing for a prolonged period of time. I just don’t ay it every minute.
I’ve tried to bite my tongue, but the more we walk her together and the longer the walk I find it harder to not say something. And the worst part is, the more he says it the more impatient his tine gets. Walking is no longer pleasurable and it is impossible to have a conversation with him because he is constantly telling the dog something.
In an effort to keep the peace, I’ve tried taking her on a walk alone, Beloved just invites himself and with him comes all those continuous comments. It’s like walking with a tape that is set on repeat. If I find this annoying heaven only knows what the four-footed one thinks or feels about this. I think Beloved and I are lucky she doesn’t speak, at least not human language at any rate.
