An Imposter


Bet you thought that this dog in the picture was Roo. (But if you know Roo you know he doesnt use a leash that well!) The same thing happened to me this morning. I went home about 9:30 am to pick up Phi. As I was driving down the street I saw "Roo" playing with this big dog in one of the neighbors yards. Shaggy yellowish hair, small size, pink collar. See we have had some problems in the past of Roo getting out. So I see "Roo" and I am freaked out because he likes to growl at big dogs and well, he could get hit by a car or dog-napped. And I don't even need to tell you how devistated I would be if anything happened to my Roo. Especially now because we bought him doggie body spray and he smells like calming lavendar these days. With the new neighbors moving in there are new dogs wandering the neighborhood. I slowed down and rolled down the window to call "Roo". It looked just like Roo, pink collar and everything. The more I looked at this imposter I thought 'That might not be Roo". So I pulled into my driveway and walked in the front door and there was Roo, the real Roo. Doing his freak out dance.
