Wado Dog Strikes Again

Some days I need a little inspiration to get up from my desk and take a break from work.  Wado Dog offers just the thing I need–especially on blue sky days with everything in blossom.  So today he came running with tail and tongue wagging with my announcement Wado Walk!  We started down the street towards town (we usually go up the hill).  I thought we might stop by the new organic market and grab some soup.  We pass a couple houses with dogs that try to attack Wado Dog through the fence.  He doesn’t pay them much mind.  What a good dog!  All his past sins are forgiven.  (read about them here) We make it down to the light and I push the cross walk button.  Suddenly Wado Dog spots a cat on the other side.  He lurches into the traffic catching me off guard and I fall in front of a now swerving and honking car.  Somehow I still have a hold of the leash and pull him back onto the sidewalk.  Blood soaks through my pants leg and I pull it up to find a giant scrape.  I think about turning back.  I think about cauliflower soup and decide to continue.  I’ve seen dogs tied just outside the market sitting patiently.  Maybe Wado Dog won’t bark too much while I’m inside?  Maybe he’ll be good?  But before we get to the store there’s business to be had and I find a nice little grassy area.  I pull out my plastic bag…wait for it…and reach down to clean up the mess when suddenly Wado Dog lunges  at I don’t even know what.  I loose my balance and fall right–into–the–poop.  It’s all over both hands.  Still somehow I managed to keep the leash.  Oh crap Wado Dog!  No!  The leash knocks into my leg and it’s all over my pants too.  So what am I to do?  I walk home in a stink.  I use the hose on my hands and leash.  Take a shower.  Peroxide my knee.  Wash my clothes.  Then back to work.  Really it’s not his fault, right?

    Sorry about the soup, pity dog food isn’t yummy or you could spite him and eat his favourite food in front of him.

  3. Trish says:

    But just look at that face!

    Oh man, it’s lucky for Wado he’s so cute.

  5. Carrie says:

    Oh. God.

    I’d die.

    The poop would have done me in. But just look at that sweet face…kinda makes it easy to forget about the bloody knee, huh?

    At least for a little while, anyway. =)

    (Glad you’re ok, too!)

    So funny! I’m remembering when little Jennie-in-the-cute-pink-dress toddled sideways and landed in fresh dog poop. Not funny at the time.

    Oh dear – what a tale! That makes me feel SLIGHTLY better about my dog, who causes us endless trouble but is such a sweet thing of course we forgive him – kind of.
    Mine is one of those little dogs that barks at the other dogs when we go for walks. Embarrassing.

  10. holy crap…wait…don’t call that a pun, intended or otherwise…your powers were SORELY tested! Still, the way you told it, it made it sound like an ADVENTURE!

    Wado looks like he could be my dog’s naughty brother (she, on the other hand, is NOT so good about ignoring dogs through fences… but she’s never actually made me bleed).

    AND – um, cauliflower soup sounds AMAZING! I’ve been obsessed with mashed cauliflower lately. You should post a recipe for us!

  12. Hee hee hee… sorry, but yep that is funny!

    Very handsome dog, and with that face you know he is gonna whip up some trouble once in awhile…

  13. Seana Smith says:

    Hello there, oh dear, a sorry tale, but a marvellous lesson in patience and forebearance. Dog poo really is a shocker, isn’t it? It’s the smell…. yuk! But we get through it… and blog it with humour. Cool.

  14. Wado dog definitely looks innocent in that photo… and very cute as well :)

    I believe I have Wado evil twin sister living at my house. I’m convinced Tonka is a high functioning idiot savant. An added bonus, she bumps over baby birds too.
