I don't know about you but last Saturday was the last time I saw sunlight. I remember the joy of the day because I invested all afternoon with my kids playing outside.
Sometime during the day we headed to a garage sale just up the block from our house. I was guiding tumbling Timmers up the road, along the curb, keeping him from nose-planting into the pavement. At one point I needed to steer him around some dried up road kill. Looked like a flattened squirrel. I was intrigued by how it looked like a rug on the road.
Timmers walked right by it without much notice. But he stopped a few steps beyond, turned back, pointed at the road rug and said "Eee-Eee Woo", again "Eee-Eee Woo". With no assistance around I tried my hand at translating. I am getting pretty skilled. I've learned that if Timmers gets all excited then I've nailed it and we've communicated. I thought about it for a moment and said "Timmers? Puppy Woof?" He freaked "Eee-Eee Woo, Eee-Eee Woo".
