Wiener in a box


Yeah, so, Homer used to have a crate for traveling in the car. I say “used to” because it’s broken, and we threw it away.

He loved that crate. I got it for him when he was a little puppy, when he was way too small for it. He knew that getting in the crate meant we were going somewhere, and Homer loves to go somewhere. I would put the crate on the ground and he would just run right in it.

Usually, I just kept it in the car, but sometimes to make room in the car I would keep the crate in the apartment. I would be getting ready to go out, and Homer would run and get in his crate. It was adorable and sad. He was communicating with me: “I know you are going somewhere, and I want to go with you.” It always made me feel terrible about leaving when he did that.

Well, now that crate is no more. We put it in a pile of boxes to be taken down to the trash, but Homer wasn’t quite ready to let it go.

Don’t feel too bad for Homer. Since we haven’t bought a new crate yet, he gets to ride on our laps in the car. Eventually, we will get a new crate for him, but I wonder if he will love it as much as his original crate.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Did you ever let him ride in the crate on top of your car for 12 hours? Because I hear dogs really like that.
