Lulu’s Life Tips: Small Does Not Mean Slow

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.

Chaplin: “Don’t feel bad, Lulu. You may not be as fast as that little dog, but at least you’re less maneuverable.”
Lulu: “Thanks, Chaplin, that … Hey, wait a minute.”
Chaplin: “And also clumsier.”
Lulu: “Uh-huh.”
Chaplin: “And you pretty clearly haven’t got as much energy.”
Lulu: “You can stop trying to make you feel better now.”
Charlee: “I don’t think he’s actually trying to make you feel better.”

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.

Chaplin: “‘Duties’? Are you talking about sleeping and getting belly rubs?”
Lulu: “And entertaining Dada by playing with him a few times a day. Don’t forget that.”

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.

Charlee: “It may be fun for everyone but I’m guessing that, in particular, it’s fun for you.”
Lulu: “Well duh.”

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!

  1. That little dog is fast for sure! Still, looks like fun for all, you are right Lulu that’s the important thing! (No matter what the cats say after the fact . . .)


  2. Lulu, we think we have seen you run way faster in other videos. We think you were just being a gracious host and letting that visitor be speedster:)
