Ethan the Dog has not been getting enough exercise this week because our back yard is one giant ice rink. So I thought I would take him out to the dog park behind the PEI Humane Society for a good run this afternoon.
Except that the dog park was also one giant ice rink, and so was closed. Which we only found out once we’d driven out there.
To save the afternoon, we decided to go to the movies instead, to see A Dog’s Purpose, the latest Lasse Hallström film.
So instead of a good run in the winter sun, Ethan got to lie on the floor of theatre four, confused by an hour and forty minutes of dogs he could hear but not smell.
To boot, the main human character in the movie was named Ethan, so for much of that hour and forty minutes he was also hearing his name called out from the screen.
We owe you one, boy.
