“Something is up! My family has been putting their things in boxes. The “camping” word has been in my ears often lately. I can smell the excitement. Yup…I’ve heard “go” at least 100 times!”
How do our dogs know about our vacation plans before we even get on the road? Mine has been at my heels for the last 2 days! Ollie is NOT going to be overlooked when the boarding of the car takes place.
Amazing animals our dogs! They study us and know us better than we can see ourselves. We must be so very boring in our normal routines. When you think about it, they really are our true friends. They are interested in every move we make and at the “ready” when we need them. I noticed that my little pal is like my shadow when I’m at camp. He can be sound asleep in his lounge chair and as soon as I step from the deck, he’s suddenly right behind me! This makes me wonder. Is he with me because I’m his (excuse the pun) “gravy train” or does every dog have a little Rin Tin Tin in them and he’s my protector? I prefer the latter idea. Ollie is MY hero. He’s my vigilant friend and guardian.
Just like each of us, heroism remains unseen unless heroic acts are needed. Every person is a potential hero and every dog is Rin Tin Tin. At least, that’s how I see it!
