Finding Parking

Rusty the Rooster here. Lots of walking today, so I am a little tired. Just need to find a little spot to park and rest.

Oops, guess I can't park here. That would cost the hu-dad some kibble funds.

Kiska, you can not come within 25 feet of this. Just saying.

Oh, stop laughing, Natasha. Not like we haven't heard your crate rattle.

Pups, they do make it tough around here to find a good place to park.

Awesome, parking is over there.

Yet another problem solved by Rusty the Rooster.

    Good going, Rusty! If we ever need additional “parking” spots, we will call you!

    Wow, you are pretty lucky that Rusty took mercy on your soul and kept looking for parking so you were not fined.

    I guess he was more wooried about losing kibble than being a defiant Sibe.

    Rusty, thank dog you are not a typical man who reads neither directions nor signs! I hope the additional parking included some nice grassy areas under shady trees.

    Oh no! I hope they try to tow the herd away.

    Rusty, we don’t know what the Herd would do without you – you did a great job helping to find that parking spot.

    Once again, Rusty the Rooster saves the day with his excellent reading skills and locomotion. Cheers, Rusty!

    I thought when they say dogs are good problem solvers they were talking about finding a hidden treat. Obviously I’m not expecting enough from Honey.

    Of course we don’t drive much. Should I ask her to look for bike racks and bus stops instead?

    Always The Thinker!

    Great job Rusty!

    Good job, Rusty!

    wif love from the Luke

    Additional parking, three miles over that way.

  13. Sage on September 9, 2010 at 9:06 am

    Rusty, you seem to have a really good nose for finding the good spots. No wonder you have such a big smile on your face!


  14. Houndstooth on September 9, 2010 at 8:20 am

    Ha ha ha ha ha! Rusty, you are always the problem solver! I’d sleep with one eye on Kiska’s crate tonight, though, if I were you!

    Rooster Holmes- Well Done. I’m just glad Natasha didn’t turn into that murder she wrote lady to solve this one.

  16. Priscilla on September 9, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Clever Rusty!!! I wonder without his finding, where you’re going to ‘park’…
