"Take me for a walk.... please.... pleeeeaaaassseee.........!" Am I a push over for a sad face or what? Well after stating quite emphatically (after our last attempt to walk in a civilised manner around the neighbourhood) that I would NEVER take Mickey out in public again - I finally gave in. Mickey would have to be THE worst dog we have ever owned! He is SO disobedient..... SO determined....... SO naughty.......SO anti-social. I just don't know where we went wrong? However there is something SO endearing about his personality that we can never be mad at him for too long - such a character! If he was able to talk (and sometimes he actually does!) I'm sure this would be his list of 10 MOST favourite things :
#1 Rocks! He loves chasing rocks, especially the small pebble like ones Alan scims across the surface of the water when we take him down to the river;
#2 The River! Particularly exploring the banks of the mighty Mulgrave at dusk (when no-one else is around);
#3 Riding in Cars! How he loves going for a ride in the car and WHAT a commotion he makes. You can hear him coming for miles. Pity help any unsuspecting motor bike riders/kids on push bikes/people mowing their lawns/elderly folk in wheelchairs - we happen to pass along the way;
#4 Walks around the neighbourhood! Knows where every dog within a 2km radius lives and knows exactly how to push their buttons!;
#5 Biting the waves at Bramston Beach - if only he didn't drink the sea water!!??
#6 Sleeping in on a Sunday morning;
#7 Soft serve ice cream in a cone;
#8 Air con!
#9 Chasing bandicoots in the backyard;
#10 His best mate Matthew!
