It’s a Dog’s Life

I really miss the Parkrun, thought Billy, sniffing a lamp post hopefully. I wonder why they stopped it. I hope it wasn’t because I barked so much at the start. I was just so excited. All those smells, admittedly they weren’t all nice but most of the humans smelt friendly. Maybe, Patrick stopped it? Maybe, I should have let him win sometimes? But then he would probably have tripped over my lead, teehee that could have been quite funny.

A lot of the humans have gone away, it’s probably because of all the rain. I heard Patrick sayย  the bad weather was keeping them away from the Parkrun (when we had one!) And he is very clever. As for the ones that are left? Well, I think they may have fallen out. They used to mess about, always kissing and hugging, now they stand apart and don’t look as happy. I haven’t smelt a trouser leg for ages. Of course that doesn’t tell you very much about someone,ย  if you really want to get to know someone you need to smell their bottoms.

My friend, Rex (he’s a Border Collie and works with Sheep) says that Mother Nature has stopped Parkrun as a punishment. He’s always been a deep thinker. He thinks all the machines, especially the one’s that fly, have stopped working because they were killing nature.ย And, he says a long time ago some beings called Dinosaurs were very naughty so she froze them all! He laughs and says some humans want to save the planet but they don’t realise the planet will save itself one day.

I know it sounds a bit silly but a lot of people are very sad because there is no Parkrun anymore. For some people it was their weekly challenge or a way to meet other people and have a bit of fun and other people used to like setting it up and making it nice for the ones that ran or walked it. Rex said it was good for people’s mental health (whatever that means)

They all used to shout my name when I ran past and I used to bark a lot, so I hope if it is Mother Nature that’s doing this, then the humans can do a deal with her.

  7. An interesting viewpoint, it must be very confusing when you can’t understand the news. Not that I understand all of it.

    A great read, Charlie, with a great message; I love your puppy-dog voice! ๐Ÿ™‚
    And I agree – here’s hoping we can ‘do a deal with Mother Nature’. It would be great to put her first in all ways.

    I think you have followed some of my Chris Thomas material. That statement is the damn truth. We peoples should realize that our beloved planet is not a dead rock. She is quite sentient…and, could disconnect all of our root chakras and throw us off at any time she pleases. We live here at HER pleasure and desire and, she is quite aware of the mess we have made. But, she is also aware of extenuating circumstances.

    Billy may be on to something. Maybe we should sniff butts, too. LOL! And, he is screamingly cute!

  12. Interesting. A dog’s perspective. He looks like my terrier. My dogs miss hiking in the mountains.
