Hey It’s Jet Here.
After a wacky week, tonight’s constitutional felt like a breath of fresh air. Mom called Mary Ann to see if she and Dixie could join us. We happily waited on their stoop for about 10 minutes until they finished dinner. Miss Stephanie and Cody turned the corner just about the time we readied ourselves to go to the right, not my favorite evening direction. Cody showed off his spiffy haircut, prancing with head held high. We dropped Miss Stephanie and Cody off halfway around our oval route and continued towards our house.
We saw two women caring for Nate, Lola’s little human brother. He made smiley faces, giggle noises and woof noises for a few minutes. He wanted to touch us. Mom recommended using his feet, as she used to in the hospital when babies wanted to touch Koko. The ladies politely said no.
About 5 houses down, we saw Miss Beverly and Neve headed our way. Miss Beverly, Miss Mary Ann and Mom chatted as JJ, Dixie and I visited with Neve, commenting on her snazzy haircut. We looped around our short block and tolerated the Moms chatting while we sat down in the middle of the street in front of our house.
In the final moments of twighlight, we saw the front lights of a car slowly approaching. Neve could barely hold herself in a sitting position. Mom asked Miss Beverly if she thought Giovanni could be the driver. Her smile answered the question while she began to unharness Neve. The car stopped, the door opened and Neve flew down the length of our front yard like she was going for the game winning pass down the field. We heard the dulcet tones of Giovanni speaking to her in Italian.
Of course, Giovanni came over to properly greet JJ, Dixie, and me in Italian too, asking if we were enjoying time with our friends. (Miss Beverly translated.) He almost forgot to greet Miss Beverly! Giovanni permitted Neve to join him in the car for the 2 house ride. While the ladies concluded their conversations, Mom noticed that Dixie, JJ and I all assumed the same angle sitting position facing Giovanni’s front door where he was disembarking. Wishing they had more light to snap a photo, the women chuckled that Giovanni has magical powers that make all of us K9s forget our Moms!
Another great day in the neighborhood.
