Caturday: Escaperon

Perch has had many years to perfect the art of door dashing.  He’s gotten locked in the bathroom on numerous occasions, and gets out the front and back doors at least a couple of time a year. These escapes are usually short lived as he is nabbed and returned to the house in short order.  The key word in that last sentence was “usually.”

Graham’s Story: The Meeting

 

Read Part One here!

One afternoon, a week or two after I’d bought Hershey’s radio controlled car we went to the local park.  It’s a big one with tennis courts, playgrounds and the nearest dog park.  Our objective today wasn’t the dog park but the tennis courts.  I thought the RC car would be far more fun if it had a hard surface to run on and build up some speed.
