Waiting for a Ride

For a few months this summer, I was car-less. My car needed some internal repairs, and as anyone who owns a rare car knows, finding the right parts can take time. This meant that in order to attend agility events, which are always at least a half hour from home, I’d have to rely on the kindness of friends who were willing to carpool.

One early morning, Miles sat on the grass near our gear, while I stood out on the street looking for our ride. Ten minutes later, our friend appeared in the distance, so I stepped back onto the curb with Miles. Suddenly I heard a loud gasp from across the street. A woman was waiting for a ride too, and until then, she and I couldn’t see each other. “Oh my gosh! I thought he was waiting for a ride all by himself!!!” She exclaimed.

I looked back at Miles… And realized why her view was so funny!

    Hahaha! Too funny! You never know with Miles! He’s just that well behaved 🙂

      I credit it on his aversion to early mornings. He takes after me. If he isn’t in bed, he is in a trance most of the morning hours.

        Oliver is also slow to wake up. After he’s walked and eaten, he will have a spunky play session that often peters out quickly and a couple minutes later he’ll be asleep in the chair curled up in a little ball. I like that phrase, “in a trance” – I can imagine it!

          Welsh Terriers take recharging very seriously… They never know when they’ll need to dash off in a wild chase! Haha.
