31 Days of Summer - In Motion


Grab this picture and play along

Day 11 - In Motion

Let's be honest. As one matures, the idea of actual movement becomes more and more daunting. 

Back in the day I could romp and frolic with PeeWee for minutes at a time.





Now I much prefer to conserve my energies for important activities such as descending the observation deck stairs.




Whereupon which I can enjoy the rolling green grasses of my estate with great abandon (and some relentlessly huge motion).




Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Momma says I have to include a photo of idiot Pea launching himself in the air like a black zeppelin. Whatever. Hey Momma! Nice dorky hat.

We all move in our own way, but that Pea is an inspiration!

Nothing like a back scratch or a scent rub or...

We like walkies. Sometimes we have drag Mama faster. Sometimes this results in a stumble (her), a swear, and a hobble home. It's making me - Gretchen Greer - think twice about herky-jerky rushes in any direction, but Sissy is such an impulsive creature that poor Mama has indeed twisted her ankle again.

Rolling in the grass was my K's favorite thing in the world. Enjoy it for her too, Mr. Mango!

Love the LabraLeap!

Sue said...

We have a similar situation here. The Porties are crazy with leaping and spinning. Sebastian lies in the grass and watches. He doesn't understand why they're wasting so much energy.

The Island Cats said...

Mango, we so enjoyed seeing you rolling in the grass. That's one thing us cats have in common with you.

A Wonderful Dogs Life said...

That's a great roll in the grass.

Wow Weee! Pee Wee looks like he's flying in that first picture. How's he do that.

Mango you shouldn't be so hard on your Momma her hat doesn't look that bad. Maybe she will let you borrow you next time your out sun baking...that would cute!
