|Even during summer vacation? No dogs, ever?|
Let’s face it: I’m always on vacation. But then again, a dog’s work just looks like people’s play. It’s exhausting to be attuned constantly to scents, sights, sounds, dropped food, etc., etc., etc.
A few headlines, then, sparing most of the boring details.
BACON STREET BUST-OUT
Big bully leaps through open window of truck, charging at innocent hound
—then goes shopping at Bacon Street Farm, thanks to recently installed automatic door.
MYSTERIOUS BODY PART FOUND IN WELLESLEY COLLEGE MARSH
Later identified as dessicated bunny head. Tasted as rotten as it looked.
ANCIENT DOG FOOD UNEARTHED DURING HOME RENOVATIONS
Mouse nest disturbed. Food at least five years old and definitely rotten. I found out the hard way.
DRIVER NEARLY REAR-ENDED, HAVING STOPPED TO ADMIRE ME
No exegesis needed.
