While I was stuck at the dog hotel you know what they did? They went out looking for new trails.
How could they do that?
I mean, I love trails. And I love adventure. And how can you find more adventure than on a new trail?
And they didn’t take me.
And look at all the things they found.
I’ve never seen cactus like this on my trails. It’s towering over my younger person. Look how small he looks. It makes me feel bigger just to look at that picture.
I can be Big Dog now. My younger person doesn’t look so big after all.
Hey wait a minute. Now wait just a minute.
You found a lake on that new trail and you didn’t take me swimming?
This is totally not fair at all. I’m going on strike.
No walks for my people until they take me to that lake.
What, person? There is what on that new trail you found?
If you get too close that cactus jumps off and sticks to you?
That sounds like a secret weapon to me. If some bad guy comes I could convince him I want to take his picture next to that cactus. And then whap, whap! That cactus jumps off and attacks him. And I’ve got it all on film.
I sure wouldn’t want to kiss him after that.
What do you mean, that’s not very nice. I’d only do it to a bad guy.
You think I would get tangled up in that cactus?
I would never go near that attack cactus. I’m the perfectly behaved dog. I always do what you say.
Fine then. I wouldn’t want to go on that new trail anyway. Giant cactus and attack cactus and a lake that’s so far down the hill that I’d have to take a flying leap into it.
I’m all worn out from the dog hotel anyway. I had fun that you don’t know anything about.
Don’t even think about trying to take me on that new trail. I’ll be busy. Taking a nap.
