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!
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! 🙂
