We’re out-of-town on an adventure without internet service. Yep, left the technology behind. So during our absence, I thought I’d leave you with a few images about why it’s tough being a dog…. from Bear’s point of view !
Mom is always stopping to take pictures. I don’t know why she insists I be in her photos. She says Brittany Spaniels are super cute. Can’t I just stay in the car and sleep?
Then there’s the sleeping.
On our last camping trip to Crested Butte, we actually slept in a tent. Hey, what’s wrong with the RV? And although it was fun sleeping next to mom in the tent, it got super cold at 10,000 feet in elevation and the pillow case was a mere 250 thread count. Certainly not what this Brittany Spaniel is accustomed to.
At home, the leather sofa is always comfy. Mom even helps my back-end up since I am no longer able to jump up on my own. You know, I was never allowed on the furniture until I got older. Yep, that’s right. I used to get on the furniture when they weren’t home and immediately jump off when they returned. Then one day I figured, what the heck, what are they gonna do about it? All I have to do is bat my puppy dog eyes and mom and dad melt. They’re such push overs. There are benefits to getting old !
However, my eyesight ain’t what it used to be.
But my nose still works great ! I have to really insist and try hard to get dad to share his sandwich with me. With persistence, I always win in the end.
Mom and dad rely on me to be on guard at all times. It’s a tough job, but someone around here has to do it.
Dad keeps me on a leash. I don’t know why I can’t walk the streets of Crested Butte freely like Pork Chop the Golden Retriever. We’re bud’s ya know !
Well, we’re off on another adventure. This time we’re traveling in luxury and taking the RV. My nose will be working overtime. Yes, it’s a dog’s life……
