The Day The Dog Went Goth...
What a most excellent fun day it was. Got up really early, and spent some time with The Birdchick and Friends, while they set up for banding birds, always fun, and then headed out for Fest, in the Prius, with the Dog.
(Think clown car, it does work, and I put a bed in there for him. HIS car takes way too much gas for a weekly jaunt)
Cabal loves the Fest. He gets to go for a ride, always good, no matter where we are going, he is with me, (I am so the Alpha in the absence of Boss) and it's like a day long Walk, with other dogs everywhere. Mostly he stays with our Minnion when I am playing, a Very Nice Girl named Nicky with many piercings that he has taken a liking to.
(Don't you wonder why I mentioned her piercings? Read on, my dears...)
But sometimes, it all gets too much, and he has to BE with me....Not a great shot of me in my Fest dress, but fun of him....It's just my show, no reason to stay awake for it or anything....
Gayle came out with her son, the Mighty M, which was beyond delightful fun. Cute Police are going to be ON that kid, much fun collecting treasure, and I spoiled him rotten finding things to put in his Spider Bag. Sorry Gayle, I'll do it again in a second.
Gayle and Nicky, of the Many Piercings, got to hear my Bag Piping, they were the only two brave enough, the rest bailed en masse when I pulled them out. They'll be sorry.....
(OK, so it WAS pretty hideous, but I do have four notes now...)
So, this will sound a little strange. And I don't know quite what to make of it, but Cabal, after some three odd weekends with Nicky (of the many piercings) decided that, well, piercing ones nose was in fact the cool thing to do.
We were walking thu the shop from our Green Room ("Room" is stretching, it has neither walls nor roof, but it is our spot behind a friendly shopkeeper) and, I have NO idea how, odds might be a MILLION to one, but Cabal managed to pierce his nose.
The Shopkeeper and her Husband have art that hangs on short chains, with a hook at the end of it, small hook, not quite an inch, an S hook. One was hanging on a nail, about Dog height.
I do not know how it happened, as we walked past, but Cabal managed to, well, Pierce his nose, all the way thru, as we walked past! He yelped, I saw it, Jeff the husband tried to get it out, the S hook with 6 inches of chain hanging from his nose, Cabal freaked..Jeff said, I hold, you get it out.
Well, one does what one has to.
Got blood all over my nice white chemise, but it came straight out. (the hook, it remains to be seen if the blood does) I was shaking and thinking "Don't throw up, don't throw up"
HOW he managed that I truly do not know. It seems fine now, tho I think a call to the vet is in order in the morning. A lesson on the dangers of trying to fit in.
Came home to what was left of a Mouse. Not much. I think I am glad Mim is so on the job. I think.
I am ready for no more adventures today, tho all in all...
It was pretty fun.
Love and Piercings,
