Hello friendlies! Lulu here! So not long ago, we hosted a small visitor for the day while her family visited a nearby theme park. She’s younger than me, smaller than me, and, as it turns out, faster than me. Take a look at our session playing chase in the back yard and you’ll see what I mean.
It’s a lot of fun to play chase, even if you tend to get, you know, left in the dust a little.
I’m sure that if I did some sort of race training I would be able to keep up a little better, but, you know, there’s not really time for that with all my other duties around here.
Anyway, I think the point Chaplin is trying to help me make is that it’s okay not to be the fastest, the most nimble, or the most energetic dog in the yard, as long as you’re enjoying yourself. It’s like when Dada and I play chase; I run circles around him because he’s nowhere near as fast, maneuverable, or energetic as I am, but it’s still fun for everyone. In this scenario, I’m the speedy little dog, and Dada is me. Or something like that.
So get out there and run with the big dogs and see how it goes. You may be surprised. This is Lulu, rolling over and out!
