One of my gentle humans, Nikki (who often comes to visit with me on Thursdays) has a blog of her own, just like me. She is clever, too, I guess. Just like me. She writes about different things; one weekly theme is a list every Tuesday; she calls it her Ten on Tuesday. (http://bookwyrmknits.wordpress.com/2012/06/26/ten-on-tuesday/)
1: Running. I love to run.
2: Chasing stuff. Like sticks. Or balls. Or frisbees. Or purry-things.
3: Going for car rides. Usually that means I am going to a park to run. I love to run.
4: Unless I am going in the car to visit the vet. Oh, I like the vet … she is nice. She was especially nice when I was very sick and had to stay in her office for a few days. But sometimes they poke me with sharp needles. Not so nice 😦
4 (repeating #4 because I don’t know if the previous #4 really belongs on a list of things that make me happy): Dog treats. I love ’em. Nom nom nom.
6: Getting up after lying on the grass and running. I love to run.
7: Greeting my gentle humans. I get all excited when I hear them come home. I whine, and bark, and jump up-and-down. “Welcome home! Now let’s go play!!”
8: Running. Running in circles. Running here, running there. I love to run.
9: Running. I love to run. (Oh, am I repeating myself?”)
10: Lying on dad’s lap after a full day of running. He will brush my coat and I will roll onto my back and he’ll rub my tummy. Bliss. If I were a purry-thing, I’d purr.
11: But I’m not a purry-thing. That makes me happy. I’m different than purry things. More on that next time.
Oops, I guess I got carried away. Ten turned into eleven. Oh well. It just shows that lots of things make me happy. I am a very happy, clever pup. Now, I need to finish this post and go outside. To run. I love running.
