I am having to keep my two year old lab restrained until we can get to an ortho doc on Tuesday. So he goes to work with me every day, our office is a small place where he can't run around. Up until Wednesday he has been an angel and is a well accepted visitor to the business. My boss, who is also my friend, and I were in the front area doing something on the computer, when we hear the sound of change falling to the ground in the back office. I rush down to find Chief shaking a leather wallet around, enjoying the spectacle of all the shiny coins flying and rolling around. I reach down and tell him to drop, he delivers it neatly to my hand and sits there. Unfortunately, he had gripped on to the change flap to do the shaking, and had torn it loose from the base. Mortified by this behavior, I told my friend I would try to find another wallet. She laughed and said don't worry about it, but I'm not made that way. So this morning, on my day off, I went shopping. In the third store I tried, (lots of leather shops here in Taos) the lady recognized my description of what I was trying to replace. They did not have it, but told me of course they could order it. $200!!!!!! It was a Prada! I had absolutely no idea that $200 wallets even existed, even though I did see the movie "The Devil Wears Prada". Well, instead we bought a normal wallet for $35 and gave it to my boss and told her to please use it as spare while she has her good one repaired. She was so sweet, she said she probably would not even do that as she thought it would be fine. But I did convince her to keep the new one. The burning question left by this episode, is how did Chief choose the Prada, when my $10 Walgreen's special was sitting right beside it on the same corner of the same desk and also full of change???? Oh well, he stays in the crate now until he can start getting some exercise!
