Ol' Buddy was so disappointed today. We loaded up all the garbage for a run to the dump. He loves the dump and you could see the excitement in his eyes as I was loading the trash cans.
He hopped up into the truck and then bounded onto the seat in his usual co-pilot position. He barked up a few folks sitting in the car next to us at the red light in Sumiton. They were oooing and ahhhing at him and he put on a show.
We were a little late leaving the house, so when we arrived at dump at 4:01 p.m. they were chaining the gates. Buddy didn't even get close enough to smell the refuge. He looked at me dejectedly as I made a U-turn in their driveway.
I stopped by the quick-mart and bought him a SlimJim so he recovered somewhat and was simply pouting this evening. He's a strange little creature.
I picked a great week for vacation. The weather has been outstanding and I've had a chance to work on some fun projects.
