In the Land of Suburbia

In the Land of Suburbia

Dog Blog Post #637: Once upon a time, in the Land of Suburbia, there lived a pair of Golden Retrievers.

They were a happy pair (for the most part) spending their days doing, well, whatever it is that Suburban dogs do, and yet deep inside they longed for something more.

One day, when the sun and the moon where just right, and the stars where perfectly aligned, they got an idea.

And it wasn't just any idea.

No, this was a special idea. And it began with a special feeling. A feeling that things were about to change...

The Journey Begins
"Gee Uncle Zachary, I feel a bit different," observed Henry, solumnly.

(Stating the obvious was a special talent of Henry's.)

But he did feel different. And so did Zachary.

So they put their heads together to try and decide what it meant.

The Big Idea

Time passed...

"I got it!" said Zachary, "We must going on an adventure!"

"Now, wait a minute, boys," warned their mother, whose job it was to say such things. "It's a very big world out there and kibble doesn't grow on trees."

A Warning Given

"Are you sure you are up to the challenge?"

So they thought and they thought, and they thought some more - at least Zachary did, as thinking was his special talent - until they - or rather he - decided an adventure was definitely the way to go.

"Yup!" Zachary announced, and he gave his mom a cheerful wave goodbye.

Saying Goodbye

There were a few tears shed...

Some Tears Shed Henry wasn't at all sure it was a good idea to leave mom, or home, and he certainly didn't feel up to any challenges, whatever those might be.

He also wasn't excited to find out that kibble didn't grow on trees, although he made a mental note to check a few out just to be sure.

But in the end, the allure of adventure was just too great for the pair that day, and so they decided to set off...

Ready to Go
