Daycare is one of the high points of my week. Unfortunately, they have remodeled the daycare place and now getting out to see my friends requires a nerve wracking trip down the corridor of doom.
You see, that hallway goes right past the beauty parlor which is a place I truly despise. Sure, I like being wet, but on my own terms, so whenever we go to daycare I have to be on high alert lest the grooming salon door open and suck me in.
Here I am checking with momma and bracing myself to make a dash for it.
I find that just keeping my head down and focusing on my destination helps. But seriously, I don't know why it is required for me to suffer through this every week.
Once in the safety of the happy playtime area I am able to put that hallway behind me and greet my pals. Like Jake, the big fat yellow lab.
I encourage him to run around as much as possible to work off some of that blubber.
I thought this was Miss Khyra herself at first. Especially since she spends most of her time on that rock playing queen for a day.
I had to tell momma to get lost. She is so nosy always wanting to photo me when I am busy with my friends. Hey! Go get your own friends... it's Dexter time!
I am teaching some of my more athletic buddies how to launch from the rock on to the air conditioning unit. This particular lesson was foiled by squirt bottle lady who is just outside of camera range scolding me for being something called an instigator.
Well, all good things must come to end I suppose. They use walkie talkies so when momma comes to pick me up, squirt bottle lady beeps the humans in the yard to "bring in Dexter."
Which means another trip down the hallway for me. Be brave, be brave...
See those legs behind me? That is short pants dude and he likes to herd me down the corridor like I am some big old cow. That is pretty embarrassing.
Of course there is shopping to do before it is time to go home. I am starving by the end of the day and quite put out that I have to wait to get home for my foodables when there are all these labrasized bags right here at daycare.
Drive woman! I could expire from hunger!
P.S. I made a movie to demonstrate the scary hallway. Try not to be frightened because there is action footage of me playing with my friends in between my vexing trips past the salon. Watch by clicking here.
