During a good season, mom always took us for a walk every morning and evening. But Shampoo and I were both pretty old, and morning and evening during the winter are cold. Mom thought it was better for us to go out while the sun is out and warm, so mom hired a pet sitter to take us out for a walk when she was at work.
When I saw other dogs or cats while walking, I got excited and barked at them, and I strongly pulled the leash and walked. At home, when a mail clerk or a delivery person rings a doorbell, I always ran to the entrance and barked energetically. Although my heart wasn’t so good, I was so cheerful that I didn’t look like I was sick.
