For those of you following the adventures of our foster dog, Chance - aka Joey, this morning was a major step forward...
As you may remember from our last exciting episode, the intrepid explorer, Chance the Sheltie, had managed to befriend the primitive native known as Brian. Communication was a bit rough, but over the last two months Brian had not shown aggressive activity and continually provided food and shelter. From this, Chance decided that it would be safe to follow Brian around from time to time, at a safe distance.
Unfortunately, the great she-beast, Melissa, was known to also inhabit the multi-room cavern in which Brian lived. Chance had early on identified her as the famous "eat shelties raw" type of monster and avoided her whenever possible.
Over the weekend, Chance decided that he must show greater courage in the face of such danger. After all, he was Chance the Explorer, Chance the Brave (well, mostly), Chance the something else great!
So this morning, as Brian and Melissa went through their strange morning rituals to prepare for the day, Chance bravely slunk into the bathroom and lay down on the shower mat. There he was, in the bathroom with both of the creatures! This was something to tell back at the great Explorers Lodge! Even as Melissa roamed the bathroom, using strange implements on her head, he stoically held his ground, cringing only a little.
After the rituals were complete, Chance indeed believed he was the bravest little scared dog in this part of Texas!
