Before you start calling the Animal Cruelty peeps, it is not what you think. Yes I am being punished in the above picture, but No, my dad is not kicking my head.
My mom and I were having our usual backyard outing without the leash. I let her know that I want to go to the front yard. She’s easy so she went along with me. We had done this before and we just walked around the house and still end up in the backyard. This time my dad decided to join us, but he came out the front door. My mom thought that he got me so she left me to go to the neighbor’s house. She crossed the street, and I came running after her. With a fast-ish moving car coming straight for me. My dad was yelling bloody murder. It’s a good thing the car started slowing down. I was able to make it safely to my mom. She then spanked me in the butt for not listening to my dad. When she brought me back to my dad, we both got yelled at – my mom for taking me out without a leash in the first place, and me for not following instructions.
My punishment – smelling my dad’s feet.
Life Lesson: There are inherent dangers to being free.
