Why can't humans be more like dogs? If I want to do something, I do it. Now. Immediately. Mom, on the other hand, asks me if I want to go for a walk and when I look happy to show her I do, she asks me again - "Do you want to go for a walk? Do you? Wanna go for a walk?"
You had me at the first "walk," you don't need to ask me again. So then I feel the need to assure her that I do, indeed, want to go for a walk, so I pat my feet on the floor, spin around in circles and squeal with excitement! Then she acts surprised. "Oh, you do? You really want to go?"
Ye-es, let's go, already! But, no, she's NOT ready. She asks me where my collar is. Well, she should know, she's the one who took it off.
"Where's your collar? Where's your collar? Want to go for a walk? We've got to find your collar!"
She finds my collar, I'm squealing, I'm dancing, she's trying to put my collar on, and we're ready to go! Right? Wrong. She has to find the leash. I follow right on her heels, bumping her with my nose to remind her that I'm still here and what our plans are.
Got the leash! Great! Ready to go for a walk! But, no, Mom has to get her jacket. Got the jacket? Good! Pant, pant, squeal, spin, let's go! Whoops, forgot the poop bags. Aw, Mom, can't you hurry up? I follow right on her heels but when she makes quick stops and U-turns, I nearly get stepped on. I'm going to be tired before we even get out the door!
If we dogs were this disorganized and slow to get going, the cat/squirrel/bird would be out of sight before we were ready to give chase. Just sayin'.
