A couple of days ago we headed out on our regular afternoon walk with Ray and, as we had not been to Lululemon for quite a while, decided to let Ray take us there… which of course he did. There was only a water bowl outside (no biscuit bowl!) and Ray was clearly perturbed as he looked all around for it. He decided that he needed to go into the store and get this obvious oversight resolved!
Once in the store, we couldn’t see any familiar faces, so we caught the attention of the nearest staff person to us and explained why Ray was in the store. Ray got a condescending smile, and the person then went off to serve a customer!
We gave Ray a treat (a poor trade-off for a Lululemon biscuit!), and directed him further downtown to another store that often had biscuits outside, but there was nothing there.
I decided that although I really did not need any money, we would go to the bank anyway so that at least Ray didn’t think that the whole walk was a waste of time! We arrived at the bank… and it was closed! We had been out longer than we had anticipated. Again we gave Ray one of his regular treats, but the poor guy must have thought that the whole world was against him.
We eventually made him happy because we stopped at Tim Hortons and bought him a plain TimBit! His stars had once again aligned themselves, and he no longer looked dejected. I am going to have to talk to Lululemon though!
