My A joins the UPFL
As you all know it has been hot here in Barkington lately. The worst thing about the hot weather is that my A tends to leave me at home more. I don’t really blame him a lot of places have no dog policies and sitting in the truck has the potential to fry my brain.
The last couple of weeks my A has being coming home feeding me then grabbing some pillows and leaving. At first I thought this was weird. I have no idea why he was doing this, it is way to hot to take a nap in the truck so he must be going somewhere but why all the pillows.
It did not hit me until last night when I really started to think about it. My A takes 3 distinct pillows, a smooshie one, a firm one and a somewhat smaller mid firm one. He also tends to come home looking a little bewildered almost like he has been hit over the head a few times. Once I put it all together it makes complete sense. My A has joined the Ultimate Pillow Fighting League (UPFL). He has the 3 different pillow types, the smooshie for hitting and wrapping around an opponent, the Firm Pillow for those hard blows that finish off and opponent and the mid firm for general all around sparring use.
I am sure the Scoobie Doo pillow case inspires fear in all who see it.
The fact that he comes home slightly bewildered is what finally gave it away. All those blows to the head must be affecting him. It does wear off but it takes him a couple of hours to look normal again.
Personally I am proud of my A, UPFL seems like a great way to get in shape and he definitely needs a hobby that is not trying to get me to play fetch. The only drawback is I am going to have to work harder to make sure I lose more weight than he does so I can win our bet.
I will be sure to let you all know when my A’s first big UPFL bout is. I would be great if you could all come out and support my A. I have a feeling the UPFL venue is not dog friendly, so hopefully some of you can support my A. I know he is going to need the support and unfortunately I will probably not be able to be there.
