I get it. Dogs are not always welcome in all areas of the human world.
I get that.
And I am fine with that.
Even if you see me alone, waiting, wondering.
Because that is the life of a dog.
For I have come to realize that ‘wanna go for a ride?’ is often code for ‘let’s stop quick so the human can run in without you,’ and I have learned to use this time for people watching or introspection.
Today the hustle and bustle of people don’t interest me much. Rather, I feel a bit like daydreaming.
I stare off into the distance and imagine life as one long day at the park, chasing the sun. With my human.
Because that is also the life of a dog.
