Yesterday on our evening walk, Ilio acted like a jerk. He barked at every animal around, and topped off the walk by jumping on a woman who rode by on her bicycle. Now, he didn't growl or bark at her, he just jumped….
BUT either his collar, tooth or monster sized paw caught the edge of her shorts and ripped them open. Then he just sat there with his tongue wagging and watched as I apologized left and right and offered to pay her for the shorts. *shakes head* We went straight home after that. I just don't get it. He's such a sweetheart, my gentle giant, when we're in the house. When we're outside, he's got a split personality. I never, ever worry about people coming in the house for the first time and meeting him. Sure, he's big and he's got huge teeth, but he only shows them when he's smiling :) But once the leash is on, he's like a crazy dog.
What else is new this week? My hair is pink. I like it. We're trying to plan a camping trip for next month. My 1st floor bathroom is *almost* done, I swear. Hubs finished the tiling today! I got a birthday card and a check for $100 from a relative I stopped speaking to years ago. And my birthday is in February, but who's counting? So, normally, I ignore small gifts from this person, because I have no real desire to open the lines of communication. This though, this is money, so you can't ignore it. I told the messenger (the non-wanted person's sister) to return it. Thanks, but no thanks. It's not right to accept something from someone you don't wish to have contact with. Am I wrong?
