Presents from the humans

We took a stroll to the garden, and No. 1 said that she had never seen me move that slow. It really wasn’t me… I think somebody moved that park about twice as far away as it used to be. No. 2 made the magic rain on his garden, and then it was time to go back. My feeties just did not want to move.

“Motor won’t go!” pronounced No. 1, and she picked me right up. She gave me a ride all the way home. Isn’t she nice?

The next time we were ready to go to the park, all of a sudden a strange contraption appeared. No. 1 stuck me in it and away we went.

It may look like I'm riding, but in my heart I'm still running.

How do you like my new ride? It makes me feel like a VID (Very Important Dog), because no other dog in the park has one.

The first time I rode in the perambulator I tried jumping out and stubbed my toe. After that I have been very happy just to stay in it and let the humans help me in and out. It’s pretty good. This way I still get out of the house and smell the fresh air and see the sights, but that darn park doesn’t seem so far away any more. Once we get there, I get out and mooch around a little.

I forgot to mention it earlier, but another present the humans got for me quite a long time ago was this little doggie staircase.

Red alert, not for Klingons!

The steps were to make it easier for me to get up into my chair, where I am allowed to lie down while the humans eat dinner.

The only problem with the steps is that, as you can see, our guest baby Klingons like them too. However, at meal time the rules are absolutely clear: the dog gets a clear path, and all Klingons have to get out of the way.

After I’ve gotten up on the chair, the Klingons often come back and lie on the steps below me, which is exactly the way it should be. Dogs above, Klingons below.
