just an observation

this post is total silliness, but it's a thought that crossed my mind when we were at the park with Riley and I wanted to illustrate it. Lord knows I am NOT an artist, but I think you will get the idea.

This first illustration is the path a human being normally takes to go from his house to the mailbox.




this second illustration is the path to the mailbox "as the crow flies"



And this final illustration is how Riley goes to the mailbox



thank you for indulging me - you may now resume your regular activities!

Since I have had as many as 11 dogs at one time (rescue), this made perfect sense to me! the only thing missing are the wet spots on the drawings! Looks like Riley just about has you trained!

Holly - you did well with your cartoon drawings - got the point across. My dog makes me smile when she does this every time I take her out for a walk....goes 6 times further than I do!! Have a jolly and happy Christmas and wishing you all the best in the new year.
