Merlin probably did really well at they debate thingy earlier this week. I kind of zoned out while he was telling me about it. It is so boring. But to each their own, I guess. I want to catch up with Ty and ask him how it went sometime soon.
Today Merlin wanted to practice bow and arrowing again. I know it is a weird sport that is bound to get him bullied and teased, but he likes it so I figure as long as it is in a place where no one can see him it will be fine. I helped him set it up behind our house and he was shooting at a target but he never ever misses. It is crazy, he is very accurate at shooting that thing. I kept moving him back further and further from the target.
I swear I could barely even see the target, but he kept hitting it. Then he asked if I heard a noise. I said, “No, keep shooting! You are like Robin Hood. Keep shooting those arrows. Faster!” But he insisted that we go investigate the noise and you will never believe what we found. It was Beefeater. Somehow he had escaped from his house again and his leash was stuck under a rock right next to the target, but you couldn’t see him at all. He was sleeping back there I guess. Merlin could easily have hit him and killed him.
I had Merlin bring him back over to the Sullivans and put him in the house before Karen got home from shopping. No need to unnecessarily upset her.
