The lesson for the day is that you no longer need to glom onto wet, cold, disgusting french fries someone lost on the sidewalk. You are no longer a starving dog, although that is part of your history.
Scarlett, dear you have a nice breakfast waiting for you at home at the end of the morning walk. Yes, sweetie, you will have good food and clean water from here on out. You will have toys, soft pillows and blankets, and the resting place of your choice.
You will have medication if you need it and a life where you don’t have to worry about your next meal or safe place to be.
No one will hit you and no one will hurt you if Dog Mommy has anything to say about it. And I do, because I am the alpha bitch of this pack.
Scarlett and McKinley very much enjoyed their wet food morning breakfast when we got home. The short walk (in heavy fog that felt like a misting rain) was enjoyed by both, even if Scarlett was not allowed to eat soggy french fries.
