Sometimes I don’t understand you gentle humans. Especially my dad.
There used to be — I have been told — a TV show called “Kids Say the Darndest Things.”
Well, I think that the 2012 remake should be called, “Gentle Humans Do the Darndest Things” and the first episode should feature my dad. I mean, look at this picture:
What in the world, you may ask, is he trying to do? Well, I’ll tell you . . . he is trying to take a picture of me — at puppy level — with his iPhone. Meanwhile, I was running circles around him, playing keep-away with my stick. He had to try and grab it to keep me in one place for his photo.
Needless to say, dad had quite a bit of trouble trying to get that picture of me. I kept getting too close, or moving too fast (after all, I am speed!), or simply knocking him over. Most of his results were pretty silly. I wouldn’t say that he had a successful photo experience. But I sure had fun!
Someday I hope dad will realize that he cannot get a good picture of me when I am playing. After all, I am just too fast for the camera. Do you remember my earlier post about breaking the sound barrier? Here is the link: http://wp.me/p262M4-3t
But, despite his past failures, I am sure that he will keep right on trying. I will say that about dad … he doesn’t give up easily. But you know, sometimes he does the darndest things …
