Really, it was an accident…

Posted by: | June 25, 2017 | 5 Comments |

I knew it was going to be a really warm week, 7 days of temps over 100 degrees, time to turn on the lawn sprinklers. I always do the front yard first, fewer sprinklers and usually they don’t need much more then fine tuning.

When Penny was here, it was her job to supervise me, now it falls on Shelby’s little shoulder. It was really nice to have her hanging out and supervising me. She was also keeping an eye open for neighbors coming home. That’s when she works her way to visit them in search of a treat. We found a major leak by the driveway, so I dig around and find a plastic piece had broken. Shelby and I run down to the local hardware store, pick up the replacement and cruised back home.

She’s right by side making sure I cleaned, repaired and assembled the sprinkler correctly. I get the the OK that everything looks good, so with Phillips screwdiver in hand, I head around the corner of house and manually turn the sprinklers on.

As soon as I open the valve, I look around the corner of house and see a very wet Shelby motivating down the sidewalk, on what looks like her rear legs only, front leg off the ground! Shelby’s poppin’ a wheelie! By the time I catch up to her, she and I are both out of breath…she’s highly upset and I’m doing the best I can not to laugh. I pick her up and apologize as we head back to the house where I grab a towel and dry her off as best I can. She really wasn’t that wet, but you know how a princess can be.

I feel really bad about what happened… and I swear, with just a bit of a smirk, I didn’t do it on purpose.

    In true princess fashion “Shelby was not amused”! Bet the water felt quite good after the shock of the initial gush wore off though.

    Awwwwww Shelby! That is definitely not the way a Princess should be treated! But I bet you have to admit, that water probably felt pretty good on such a hot day! 😁

    Big Daddy better watch it….no one treats the princess like that…on purpose or not…

    Bhahahaha! Oh my dog Jack that is SO disrespectful of the PP. But a bit funny too!

    Off with your head says Princess Shelby! (Or at least throw extra delicious treats her way and all’s good right?!)
