Makeup Walk – Debts To Be Paid

With our evening walk canceled the night before due to rain, Hu-Dad tried to claim tonight’s excursion qualified as a makeup walk.

Someone is happy for tonight's stroll through the neighborhood.

Thank you everyone for your sympathy notes upon hearing of the cancellation of our Tuesday evening walk. We were as shocked as the rest of you even though Hu-Dad tried to claim that the pouring rain made for a good excuse.

Don't even think this is a makeup walk.

Last night when we were out walking, Hu-Dad reminded us of the extra walk we received last week since he walked us both before and after dinner. He tried to claim we were even and no deficit existed. We just laughed and laughed and laughed.

We expect to do this often, Hu-Dad.

    Re: Retroactive Walks

    Hu-dad, I have been contacted by the Sibe tribe regarding your claim of the validity of retroactive walks counting against future walks that are denied. After reviewing the pertinent tombs and doguments I have concluded that retroactive walks cannot be claimed against future walks. Since you are now down one current walk please be advised that the Tribe is due a walk equal to the missed walk plus interest which is compounding at dog rate and in addition damages for the emotional suffering shall be paid in the form of ear scritches and belly rubs. Please take immediate steps to rectify this situation as this interest is due and owing and is compounded daily.

    Your prompt attention is appreciated

    One of the many wonderful things about dogs is they hold no grudges. Lucky for you Hu-dad. 😀
