What’s up with this red sock?

We’re always so happy to get back home and pick up Chance! We’ve been away for almost two weeks so we missed him. More than usual this time because the night before we left for our latest trip, at 2:30 in the morning, he injured his paw. Nothing serious.

Our host decided to come in and collect our bath towels to wash them. We were mortified. We have not been invited back since! We’ll try harder next time.
