While I was walking through the park, I stopped to chat to this man playing fetch with his dog. We soon got engrossed in a conversation about spirituality.
The dog didn't seem at all interested in our discourse. Each time the man tossed the tennis ball, she would fetch and drop the ball back at his feet. She expected him to toss the ball again. When he didn't do it, she whined at him. It was as if she was saying "less conversation, more fun!" Reminds me of that Elvis Presley song that goes: "A little less conversation, a little more action please."
That's what I love about dogs - they remind us not to take life so seriously.
Life is meant to be fun! Let's play ball!
