For those of you that have not met my dog yet – this is Flump.
The thing she loves doing most in the world is getting in the Big Blue Car and going on an adventure.
She doesn’t care where that adventure takes her, as long as there are new things to sniff and preferably some trees and grass to explore.
She doesn’t care what the weather is like – literally – rain, sleet and snow are no obstacles to her. Gale force winds just make her fur fly around in interesting patterns, and freezing temperatures mean that she can run around more before she gets hot. Admittedly blazing sunshine can be a bit of an issue, but if there’s one thing my dog can always do, it’s find water. Puddles, lakes, streams, canals and dirty ditches are all fair game in Flump’s book. She can’t always find her own way out of them, but I swear you could send her into the Sahara Desert and she’d come back dripping.
Today was no exception.
She looked as though she was going to burst with excitement as we were getting ready to go out in the Big Blue Car. She get’s walked every single day – without fail – but the Big Blue Car is normally reserved for weekends. Today was a Bank Holiday though, so bonus Big Blue Car time was available.
She literally bounces up and down with excitement over the prospect of a trip in the Big Blue Car.
That’s no mean feat when you weigh 60 Kg and are in your dotage, but it does’t stop her.
Sometimes it makes her hurt her paw, but still, up and down she bounces.
So, today, with much excitement and flying of fur, we went of to explore somewhere new.
We got lost, we got stuck in holiday traffic jams, we got a flat tire and had to change in on a lay-by on the motorway.
Do you think Flump cared?
Not one jot.
She got to sniff new sniffs and have an adventure.
I love her attitude.
And she loves the Big Blue Car.
Have a great week – find adventures where you can x
One response to “Nightmare or adventure – it’s all about attitude!”
You are so right. Adventures continuously present themselves, and so Its up to us to seize the moments.
