I got let OUT!!! So there will be pictures of my day out all week ...
It started when TBT went out ta do his garden chores this morning and he let Iza out with him. I was chasing the open door, so he sat down (really) an thought about it. He's been cautious about us going out because Ayla used to stay out several days and nights. An when he let me out last year, I watched Ayla an learned how ta get over the big tall fence.
Ayla and I got kept inside for over a year since then. Iza is allowed out (mostly fer the Garden Tour, but sometimes when TBT is out with her) cuz she is too fat ta get over the fence (and she says she doesn't want to, annyway).
And he says there are practical matters. Grampa likes to go out on the deck an it takes him a full minute to get in or out sometimes (his feets don't always werk too well). So TBT decided that if we were pacing around at the open door making OUT movements, he was gonna have to adjust to reality.
And he said it was better iffen I got outside when HE was outside. And also, since Grampa watches Fox News all day and TBT stays outside a bit more often becuz of that, he wanted some company. So he made Ayla and I cross-our-hearts-and-stay-in-the-yard-or-become-mousies!
We crossed our hearts. Actually, we would have ripped each other's ears off to get outside, and we LIKE each other).
Iza came out with me (IZA: I was instructed ta SCREECH iffen Marley ran fer the fence) to start. I looked out carefully fer monsters, Vishus Deer, and Evil Skwerls. I dint see anny, so I went out. It was GREAT, soft blowy breeze, new smells, no TV sounds, birdie chirps, etc.
Well, after she nibbled my leg the 3rd time (IZA: Three's the charm"), I went out on it. I had forgotten what it felt like. All rough and pebbly underpaw, stuff moved underpaw, and there were TWIGS I hadda keep stepping over!
