Anyway, he did one of his 10-minute-wees. In the middle of the shop. I tried to catch the attention of the nearest polo shirt person but thought it was safer to keep Scooby in the one place for the duration...his bladder has an enormous capacity. On a cold day several villages can be engulfed with the steam produced by one of his 10-minute-wees. His very own pee-souper fog.
I did find a 'wet floor' sign thing and placed it approximately in the middle of the yellow ocean until I could find someone suitably qualified in mopping.
And then...well once he was more comfortable he tried to get in the rabbit enclosure. He noticed there was no roof on the rabbit enclosure and I caught him working out how to jump in. If it wasn't for the £102.27 I spent in there I'm sure we would have been escorted out.
It's not just Scooby's staggeringly expensive food (that promises so much in the way of energy, nutrients, wet noses and lack of the Mr. Whippy's) but there's Lulu's too. Now that she's 8 and a half and her lovely brother died recently I'm compelled to get her the expensive cat food for mature cats.
This presented me with a bit of a dilemma in itself. I couldn't bring myself to buy the '3 for 2' offer that was on for fear of jinxing the little Lulu. So, like taking an umbrella out to guarantee a dry day I got her 'two for £15' of some other stuff instead. Phew. Glad I sidestepped that one.
Scooby in the twilight zone
It's been great taking Scooby out in daylight everyday over the last week or so but you do see some weird stuff sometimes. What does the doll's head in a tree mean? It's in Woodbank Park. Does it mean something sinister? Is it art?
witchcraft at woodbank?
Whatever the reason I won't go there in the dark now the dog-walking-by-moonlight is starting again as everything gets back to the normal routine in the bleak winteryness.

I don't do the sentimental guff that's evident at this time of year. Sometimes there's a really good reason for auld acquaintances to be forgot. In the same vein having a facebook friend clearout can be very cathartic. If you're doing the looking back and looking forward thing, please be kind to yourself. And don't get dizzy. And be careful crossing the road. You might want to stop (looking forward and looking back) while you cross the road. Look left and right instead.
Scooby sleeps as if he doesn't have a care in the world.
So should you.
Unless you've done something bad, like killed someone, in which case you should go to the police station and hand yourself in.
