I guess I should give an update on Koki. She is an interesting little dog. Last week, we went back to her vet to get her a a new look. She got a bath, toe nails clipped and hair cut for $11. She smelled great and looked like a different dog.
She is still getting me up at 6:30 to take her for a walk. She always hopes we will run into Geronimo, who is a dog friend of hers that lives near by. Sometimes he is running around and they get to rub noses. He is a yellow lab and towers over Koki.
She is always on the lookout for him and forgets the reason that we are out taking a walk. I think I am getting more good out of the walk than she is. She does enjoy smelling every little rock, blade of grass and even all of the flowers.
However, the main reason for the walk seems to be being forgotten. Others in the apartment, not to be named, have been giving a dog biscuit if Koki does number two on the paper on the balcony. I have said this is a bad idea, because now she is waiting until she returns from her walk do to her business, so she can get her treat. This is an intelligent dog.
This morning she made a deposit on the rug in the living room. I brought her back to her crate and asked her why she had done that. She looked at me with those big eyes and said she had heard that President Obama was paying for clunkers and she wanted to be sure I found her clunker, so she put it on the carpet.
Personally, I think that Obama’s “cash for clunker” plan and Koki’s clunker have a lot in common.
