THE DANGERS OF TRAILING CLOSELY
Who knew that not all shoes were created equal? For as long as I can remember, I’ve been gnawing on human footwear. Until recently, it was a carefree delight that never caused anyone harm. But one day, I chewed on Melissa’s fanciest pair of shoes. And unlike old sneakers, which are pretty durable, these shoes crunched apart like a piece of celery. The word I think I heard her use was “unsalvageable.” Needless to say, that was a hard lesson learned. However, which types of shoes are acceptable chew toys isn’t the only thing I’ve learned. On two occasions not long ago, I went face-to-tail with a small, black-and-white creature, and both times, I came out worse for wear. The first time I saw the cool-looking critter, I started to follow it as closely as possible As I approached, the little thing let out a spray into the air. I don’t think I’ve ever smelled something so awful in my entire life. I went home with my head hung in shame, unsure of what happened. Judging by the looks on my humans’ faces, the stench was just as bad as I’d imagined. You would think this would stop me from ever doing that again, but it didn’t. I saw another of those animals, which I now know are called skunks, and gave pursuit again. Same pattern, same result. It was a classic fool-me-once situation, and I was the fool. I knew exactly what would happen if I trailed too close, but I did it anyway. Not the smartest idea in the world. I see humans do the same thing all the time in those big metal boxes they zoom around in. One will follow another way closer than is necessary for any number of reasons. Maybe they’re in a rush, or perhaps they want to read a bumper sticker or vanity plate that looks neat from afar. Then, the car in front will stop suddenly, and the one behind it will slam into it. The human driving the second car is left with a lot more than a foul odor; they’ll be at fault for an accident and have to deal with the consequences.

Pro Tip: To keep cookies fresh, don’t turn them all into sandwiches at the same time. Wait to put peanut butter between cookies until you’re ready to treat your dog. With this method, cookies will stay fresh for up to 2 weeks. 1. Heat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. 2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing until soft dough forms. 3. Flour countertop, then roll dough to be 1 inch thick. Use 1 1/2-inch circle-shaped cookie cutter to cut dough into circles. Use all dough. 4. Bake for 10–12 minutes until cookies are an even color on top. (Note: Cookies will lighten in color as they cook.) Carefully remove from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool. 5. Smear a little peanut butter in the center of 2 cookies to make a sandwich, and serve to your favorite pooch!
Here’s hoping both humans and I will learn to keep a safe distance from the others we see on our travels.
