Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
Stumpy corgi legs can move much faster than you expect.
Said legs can definitely move faster than your two human legs, especially when said stumpy legs are controlled by a brain that really wants to chase that deer.
In the summer, once everything has leafed out, it is really hard to see deer when you only have puny human eyes. Ditto your ability to smell them with your inefficient human nose.
Most people, when a dog charges in front of their car, get mad at the owner.
This is to be expected.
In my neighborhood, they stop and help you corral said dog on a third neighbor’s porch so that you can get the leash on the bratty canine.
Then they drive off with only a tip-of-the-cap, as if this is what they do all day.
The dog will have learned nothing from this and spend the rest of the walk nearly choking herself to get. that. deer., even though the deer has long since run off to cause havoc in another neck of the woods.
