These are a few of my favorite things:
#1 and #2 are pretty obvious… Time to EAT!
Woohoo! Yahoo! Woot! Woot! Yippee Yo Ki Yay!
#3 – now this one is a little different….
at least for me…
Most of you lucky ducks reading this are fortunate enough to get to eat AGAIN at lunch time.
Mom tells me, however, that dogs only get to eat at Breakfast and Dinner. (heavy dog sigh)
Lunch time can be pretty darn glorious (at least if it is a day Mom works from her home office and it is not raining – or she is not feeling toooooo laaazzzy!)….
We get to go for a WALK!
That wonderful, amazing, magnificent four-letter word that can only be spoken within 10 seconds of the actual event occurring! WALK!!!!
Oh the wonderful smells and sights and people and activity! It’s a wonderful part of a dog’s life – – – W…. A…. L…. K…. One of the greatest words ever.
If we are lucky, I get to see some of my friends on our walk.
I really, really, really love the little ones that Mom calls “kids.”
They are fun because they are just my size and they like to run fast like me, and they are always so happy.
Sometimes I get to see other dogs and cats on my walk too – some are friendly – some not so much… (Mom says we just have to “leave it” when we go by them!)
One of the stupidest parts of walks are a thing called “cars.”
Every single time one of them interferes with my walk along the road, Mom makes ME get “over” and lets them go by! Seriously?! The nerve! Don’t they know this is MY walk!?!
While I’m busy sniffing and smelling, Mom is usually looking around. Lately, she has been going on and on about how “wonderful” the weather has been. Yesterday it was 64 degrees F on our walk. Mom says this is unseasonably warm for mid-November in Mars. She goes on and on about how beautiful the sky is and how warm the breeze is.
Yesterday, she got all excited because she saw these yellow flowers she called “Forsythia” that were blooming. We had to stop (in the middle of my walk!) to take a picture of them. Puleeeezee!
Mom says Forsythia bloom in the Spring time in Mars, and it is almost Winter here, so this is very unusual.
We usually walk about two or three miles at Lunch time, and I try very hard to walk “nice” and not pull. When I do, Mom yells, “Easy,” and I have to tow the line.
But… when we get back to my free space however…
that wonderful space that Mom refers to as “Charlie’s Yard”…
she takes the leash off, and I get to “zoom!”
Zoom Zoom Zoom!
Aren’t the zoomies the best?!
Zoomies are the reward for walking nice and “easy!” It is a chance to run like the wind – round and round – until I can run no more.
Then…. I go in the house (Mom says this is “home”).
I get a big drink of water…. and I am a happy boy… and I wait….
for the next best time of day…..
