“Psst. Hey. Lemme out.”
I can’t do that, Iggy.
“What’s the matter? Scared?”
Well, yeah. If you get out and —
“I won’t tell the vet.”
“Nobody has to know you helped me escape.”
It has nothing to do with people knowing.
“Scared of me?”
“I won’t hurt you. I’ll just go on my way.”
I’m not scared of you, Iggy.
“You should be.”
“I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.”
No you didn’t.
No. That’s from a Johnny Cash song.
“Oh. It’s a good song.”
“So I didn’t shoot a guy?”
“What was I doing in Reno, then?”
You weren’t in Reno.
“Wow. I thought I was.”
“I was totally convinced.”
I see that.
“That’s a really good song.”
“Had me completely fooled.”
I don’t think the point was to fool–
“Why am I locked up, then?”
You’re recovering from heartworm treatment, remember?
“Wow, that’s a long time.”
Yep. It’s a pretty serious ailment. It’ll take a while for it to go away.
“Can we go to Reno when I’m better?”
Iggy, sweetie, when you’re better, we can go wherever you want.
“Cool! I wanna go to Reno!”
Then I’ll take you to Reno.
“I wanna shoot a man!”
What?! No! Ugh. You know, we could have had a heartwarming moment there.
“I’ve had enough heartworming moments.”
Warming, not worm — never mind. I have to find you some different music to listen to.
“Sure. Can I get a teardrop tattoo under my eye?”
This is going to be the longest month of both of our lives, isn’t it?
“Hey, I asked you to spring me. It’s your own fault for saying no.”

Iggy, you are the best! I love the way you think! …and if you go to Reno, please don’t forget the camera :o)
He’s not going to Reno. I wouldn’t trust him there.
Poor Iggy. If he’s going to get a tattoo he should get something really manly like a cat skull and cross bones. 😀
Love your conversations…
Thanks so much!
I freaking LOVE THIS!!! 😄
Thank you! 😀
Haha… You don’t need to go anywhere Iggy! Your stories are great as it is!
Hugs, Carrie & Pups x
Says Iggy: “You’re not helping!”
I, on the other hand, say thanks. 🙂
