Hi! My name is Brinley and I’m taking over the blog today so Momma can catch up on her t0-do list after a busy week! I wanted to share a little story about my recent ride in the truck when Mom and I got stuck in something she called “construction traffic.” Because I’m a puppy I don’t like to sit still for very long so being in the truck for a long time isn’t very fun for me. I tried to be patient and just hang out, but that didn’t last long.
So I tried to be helpful by cleaning the crumbs out of mom’s cup holder. I thought I was doing a pretty good job, but she didn’t seem to appreciate my efforts.
So I tried being patient again. But like I said, that really isn’t my thing.
So I tried to take a nap on the center console. But I’m getting bigger now and don’t fit there very well anymore. I couldn’t get comfortable so I moved back over to my seat.
Next I tried giving mom puppy dog eyes to see if it would get us out of traffic any faster. She said I looked cute but it wouldn’t help with traffic.
After a while I was starting to have a serious case of cabin fever, so I really laid on the puppy dog eyes. Still no luck.
So I found a toy and invited Mom to play tug-o-war.
But she said she was too busy watching the other cars. How can you be too busy for tug-o-war?
So I tried to help her watch the other cars. But when they didn’t move I got bored again.
This is my impersonation of what Mom and the other drivers on the road felt like sitting in their vehicles on a bright sunny day.
I thought maybe if I didn’t look the traffic would go away… but that didn’t work either.
Then Mom started to whistle to the song on the radio.
I tried to ignore her, but I couldn’t because she was right next to me and I’m trained to listen to whistles!
She finally stopped, but then she wanted to take a selfie. Whatever that is….
I moved back over to my seat to relax and I thought she was trying to shade my eyes from the bright sun, but it turns out she was just taking more pictures!
Finally the other cars started to move and I was excited to see new scenery out the window.
Luckily, I could tell we were almost home by what I saw out the window!
But then we stopped AGAIN! It was so frustrating!
I was pretty darn tired from all this crazy traffic, but I tried my best to stay awake and keep Mom company. It was really hard!
I just wanted to rest my eyes from the bright sun for a moment, but apparently I was more tired than I thought and fell asleep.
At least I’m super cute when I sleep!
Mom told me later that this is why we stopped again. We had to wait for this GIGANTIC metal thing to get off the highway in front of us. It was bigger than Mom’s truck!
I woke up just as we pulled in the driveway and told Mom I didn’t want to be in traffic ever again. She said she couldn’t promise anything but gave me a scratch behind my ear before she let me out of the truck.
So that’s my story about my ride in the truck with traffic. I hope you liked it. Mom will be back later this week with new projects she and Dad have been working on, so watch for those. You never know when I might pop up in the pictures! 🙂
