I just came back from UPS Customer Centre in Camden.
To be precise, the depot was right by Kentish Town Tube.
I had to return the dog house I bought through Fab because Mr. B didn’t like it at all.
A super helpful guy from Fab suggested that UPS could come & collect from my address if their depots weren’t in my neighbourhood.
However, the damn UPS website was down. So I asked Hubbie to drive me there.
This was what I ordered for Mr.B.
Doesn’t it look fab? It was a love at first sight when I first laid my eyes on this cutie.
The shell is made of plastic and a yellow polka dot cushion accompanies it.
Hubbie & I opened the package, getting very excited.
How will Mr.B react to this unexpected gift?
Our eager fingers couldn’t move any faster while peeling off layers of sticky tapes.
Mr. B was observing it from his dog bed with a mild interest. And he approached the pod cautiously when our cheerful voice called him over.
He stuck his head in first followed by his paws…
Then, something spooked him. He jerked himself out of the pod and retreated to his dog bed in a lightning speed! Oh no, what’s happened?!
We tried really hard to lure him into the pod again.
However, our effort was in vain. There was no way to bargain with or to reason with dogs if they have made up their mind.
We were so disappointed that it didn’t work out. Because the pod would be a perfect addition to our minimalist apartment…
His crash pad, the Strawberry House, is aging so badly.
It’s now lost all its freshness and is sagging like a rotting one. That was the original reason why I wanted to replace it in the first place.
Oh well, I will have to find an alternative…
Mr.B looks at me reproachfully, “Nothing’s wrong with this pad!”
Well, it is an eye sore, actually…
He is crawling back into his beloved Strawberry HQ before I change my mind.
