It is hard to resist a temptation, when you are a dog. When I see something I like, I don’t usually think twice, I just go for it. For instance when I see a piece of sandwich lying beside the road. Or a tasty little crab on the beach. But this time I did hesitate, although the temptation was great. This was the temptation:
Big seagulls, loads of them! I wanted to chase them, but I had to run through the water to get to them and the water is very cold. So I stood still, trying to resist the urge to go to them.
But then I thought: if I run very fast and jump over the deepest pools, maybe I will not get too wet and cold. So I went for it! I accelerated (did I tell you I am the fastest dog on the beach?) and ran like lightning towards the big juicy birds. Of course they all flew away, that is what they always do. That is okay, chasing them is great fun. I love the way they hover above me, I love the spaciousness of the beach. It all makes me very happy.
In the end, I wasn’t too cold. As long as I run, I stay warm.
