It’s just been way too cold to do anything lately.
Even going to the park to see my friends is an effort. I do get excited (hmmm, my version of excitement, a couple wags of the tail, a slight alertness in the eyes, my head uplifted and a long stretch from my couching on the sofa is the definition of my excitement).
Once I get going it’s fine (but don’t all you humans say that?) . I think I’m more human than I am dog. I’ve often heard mum describing me as a man in a dog suit….a bit like Wilfred (not sure if you’ve ever watched that sitcom the only difference is that he is extremely crude! ..I’m not).
How have you been coping with the cold? At least my body is coated with fur or wool or hair , whatever it is. I’m kept warm all the time but it also helps when mum and dad “allow” me to lay on the throw rug.
My favourite thing to do in Winter is to just lay on the ottoman and watch TV. Mum and dad keep putting on CNN news and the US Presidential updates. What’s Trump up to now? It’s like watching an episode of 24 with Jack Bauer. Mum and dad were hooked on that one too!
What is a dog to do with that? Boooooooring!!!!!! I just tune out. But they leave it on for me when they leave they house…c’mon as if I want to watch that!
When dad leaves the house he gives me a cuddle and kiss then asks me “now what would you like to watch while we’re out? How about something funny?!” . Mehhh, I’m not really fussed I don’t watch, I just listen, my eyes are closed anyway.
I don’t really know where I am going with this train of thought or why I am telling you this. Sorry if you are wasting your precious reading time on my rambles. It’s just that I’m feeling a little tired from my big day at the park. Getting and giving cuddles. It’s hard work you know!
Lately, mum has been taking me to the park for these lengthy laps around the oval. One lap is enough! Isn’t it? Ok maybe two!
I’m a big dog so I get tired faster. Well that’s my excuse at least.
Get lots of cuddles this Winter to stay warm and give lots of cuddles!!!
