Why I love Mina

Trot, trot, trot, trot... "LEASH!" Yank, huff, fall back.

Trot, trot, trot, trot..."LEAAASHH!" Sigh, grumble, huff, fall back.

Trot, trot, trot, trot...."LEAASSSSHHH!!!" Mumble, grumble, snort, sigh, fall back.

Trot, trot. "You know, life would be easier if you didn't keep trotting to the very end of your leash, then act surprised when you hit the end of it."

"Oh, would it, my dear sweet minion?"

Uh-oh. Mina was in one of those moods - the world is against her, woe is her, cry her a river, then throw her some liver cookies.

We were progressing slowly on our walk. The sun was out, my flesh was turning pink, Mina was panting like she hadn't just gulped down four cups of water (that I have to carry, mind you) and Mina kept trotting past me at a super-fast pace and psuedo-choking herself on the lead. It was great. Just fabulous.

"Um, soooo, Mina - how about we take the loop around the lagoon. There are geese you can glare at and maybe ducks." I was trying the "please the canine unit route".

It didn't work.

"Yeah, minion, let's DO that. Let's walk another forty minutes around a fricking dirty lagoon that you won't even let me swim in. And then maybe let's trek across the great desert just so you can tell me to not sniff the goose poop. After that, let's walk by the dog park and mock the dogs that I don't even get to fricking chase and play with." Mina managed to convey this message to me while sniffing chamomile and pissing on a bush.

I took a deep breath. One must take a lot of deep breaths when Mina gets into her funky moods.

"Okay, well...what would you like to do? Should we go back to the truck and go home?"

"You would like that, wouldn't you, minion? Just give up and go back and miss out on all the smells and sights and creatures to glare and yell at and maybe swipe with my paw? I don't think so, missy. We're going to walk the extra forty minutes, and you are going to keep up so I don't end up being attacked by that infernal leash. Sound good?"

I nod and smile.

Trot, trot, trot, trot... "LEASH!" Yank, huff, fall back.

Trot, trot, trot, trot..."LEAAASHH!" Sigh, grumble, huff, fall back.

Trot, trot, trot, trot...."LEAASSSSHHH!!!" Mumble, grumble, snort, sigh, fall back.

"You're doing that on purpose. You are currently on my list. There will be repercussions. Just when you LEAST expect it, I'll....CRAP!" *sound of Mina tripping over slackened leash* *sound of Mina sliding across her chest* *sound of Mina getting herself up and acting like nothing happened* "do something horrible to you! Like lick your ear!"

And that is why I love Mina.

even when they're annoying, they're still endearing.

I really want to see you and Mina IN ACTION! It sounds heeeeeeeeeeeeelarious!

In your free time (ha), you should write a collection of short stories about the Mina! This story alone should get you a prize.
