Miss Naja is too smart for her/my own good. Little bugger knows how to open the sliding glass door to the enclosed back porch, AND knows how to open the hinged door to get outside. I'm downstairs reading a book, when Moo comes downstairs barking frantically, he usually does this when he's tattling on his sister. So I listen quietly, no sounds of Naja, which can only mean one thing, she's gotten out. It seems my sister, who goes out to the porch to smoke, forgot to lock the door when she came in. It also happens to be pouring rain. Great...So I get on my boots, and rain coat, grab a couple of cookies and her leash and set out looking for her. I found her pretty quickly, standing in the garden barking at a bunch of birds.
Covered in god only knows what, and stinking to high heaven. I call her, she comes right away, I give her a cookie, and put her leash on. She looks at me like "Gee Ma! Isn't this fun?!" We walk to the house and into the downstairs bathroom for a shower. Now why is it, that a dog can have all sorts of fun running around in the rain, but as soon as I try to give her a shower, it's like torture. So now she's clean, and smelling nice, but refuses to wag her tail at me, at least for now.
