A blog from Tango
I am not feeling so good tonight, Mum and I had been out for our evening walk to the local recreation ground, It was dark so she had to have a torch, poor soul can’t see unless the light’s in the sky. The walk was [in her opinion] finished so she goes back to the car, and starts bleating, come on Tango, time to go, hurry up, in the car lad , move it sunshine, get your a*** in gear if you please, I’m losing patience fast, and so on, I of course just ignore her as I am going deaf, well at least I hear her tell everyone that, so why not take advantage eh?
I decided to have a little nose in the garden above the underground garage by the flats, I don’t usually go there as she won’t let me, but I’m playing deaf, remember! I got right up to the wall and she shouted, get your backside down here NOW, OK, OK I thought, best move, so I went to the edge of the garden that runs alongside the garage driveway and jumped down. JEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ, my chin hit the floor so hard it knocked the breath from my body, how the h*** was I to know it was a five foot drop? I just lay there for a bit, and Mum came running over all of a tizz. And I accused her of not being able to see in the dark.
Arlene says when I saw Tango step off that wall my heart was in my mouth, he’s 13 next month so no spring chicken, he could easily have broken his neck or leg at least, He tottered over to the car looking quite dazed, I checked him over when we got home but all I cold see was a skinned chin, but he obviously hurts, as he’s getting up from his bed quite delicately. but my was he lucky.
