George gets very excited when he meets other dogs when we're out. Not always but usually he'll run around like a crazy dog. Today we met two dogs as we were on our way down a narrow, muddy hill path. George proceeded to show us up and go temporarily deaf. He also becomes oblivious to all that's around him. So when he charged towards me, he wasn't 'seeing' me.
That's the excuse I'm giving him for taking my legs from under me and sending me sprawling. The other dog owner was most concerned. 'Oh dear, are you all right?' she said.
'I'm absolutely fine: I had a soft landing.'
Yes, I landed on George - and serve him right too!
And what was Husband doing? Was he rushing to my aid, to help me up?
Was he heckaslike. He was laughing so hard it's a wonder he didn't fall off the edge of the cliffs. (Or get pushed later on.)
Of course with my old bones I'll probably have seized up by tomorrow. That's the excuse I'm preparing anyway for sitting with my feet up all day.
