Shiva and the flooded field
Out on her afternoon walk, Shiva always runs ahead. She checks back from time to time to make sure mum is keeping up. Shiva is so speedy. Shiva is so agile. She races like a rocket. Blink and you miss her. When mummy calls it’s just as if Shiva slams on the brakes, sinking her back paws into the ground and coming to a skidding stop.
Today when mummy turns the corner, expecting Shiva to be miles ahead, to her surprise she finds Shiva sitting, a puzzled expression on her face. Pretty soon, its plain to see why the husky goes no further. Instead of green field, there is water. A big, brown puddle blocks the way and another and another.
What’s a dog to do?
Sometimes when things are unexpected and don’t go quite your way, try and do what Shiva does and have fun anyway. When life gives you puddles, go splashing!
