I’ll tell you what’s up! I was going for my early morning walk. This is where I make sure I wake my dad up about an hour or so before the alarm so I can go out and enjoy the early morning air.
I go to his side of the bed and I breathe heavilly in his face. If that doesn’t work I cry just enough to wake him up bu tnot my mom…..He always gets up.
It was a rather nice morning this morning .The air was fresh and the rain had stopped or there abouts, but the grass was soaked. I pee’d and then walked and smelled around finally deciding to poop just when I felt my dad losing patience and about to pull me back inside. Then I did my usual lie down on the lawn and chew a stick routine. My dad quickly decided to undue my leash and walk to towards the back of the house. He knows I will follow and try to play tug with the leash. Just when I was about to grab it, he threw it towards the backyard, (predictable). BUT as I started to run to get it a rabbit RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME, that neither of us had seen, took off running like a bat outa’ hell. So my instincts kicked in and I persued, boy did I persue……run rabbit run……………..
Um, I persued as far as the edge of the woods….then my other instincts kicked in… that I was tired, he was too damned fast, and I have seen enough Bugs Bunny to know that this wouldn’t end well for me. Unlike Daffy Duck, Elmer J. Fudd, Wylie Coyote, and countelss others I listened to my Buggs bunny instinct.
Then I was tired and went inside with my dad without a fight. He made it up to me later that day by playing with me when te grass was dry.
Life Lesson: You should follow your instincts, but you don’t have to follow them all the way all the time, THINK too.
