Quotes, # 010: Friendship

About three years ago, I was asked to housesit for friends of mine. They were headed to Japan for six months, and I was coming up on a European adventure of my own as soon as they returned; the timing was perfect.

Their home is a large and unique structure on a fair bit of FENCED land located in Hillman City. My responsibilities included keeping track of several (mostly psychotic / neurotic) cats and two decent-sized canines named Lincoln and Park. Your imagination can run rampant about the names.

Both dogs have a penchant for going on walk-about without human companionship, a trait that is Very Discouraged and yet Difficult to Stop. The fact there was a tall fence in place seemed to simply create a challenge for our intrepid wanderers.

After one such jaunt, they had been returned to their yard. As you can see from the photograph, they seemed sad and contrite. It was all a ploy; they were simply planning their next adventure, and I fell for it.
