New dogs and lunch drama. Day 138, 48.4km  (3/11/2009)

As D and I were running along this morning in cool clouded weather we saw two dogs on the road in front of us, and I thought to myself they appeared a little feral. Then D let the cat out of the bag – she exclaimed “By gringo they’re dingos!” I trotted along and thought about our doggie differences as I was bred in captivity surrounded by the creature comforts of a suburban home and these “dogs” are native Australians brought up in the harsh bush but I thought we are still all dogs together and we enjoy the same smells, after all isn’t dog power more important than sniffing out our differences which would differently be barking up the wrong tree, so I felt a little ashamed of my first reactionary thoughts. As D always says one should never judge a book from the cover.  We ran on and stopped at Toowoomba Creek Roadhouse for lunch and I wasn’t happy with the Running Pink Team, they all looked after themselves and just left me sitting whilst they ate their sandwiches so I decided to get a little lunch for myself, I surveyed the situation and realised that D’s mum was talking more than concentration on eating and her plate with yummy ham sandwich was just sitting on her lap all in easy reach. I got my tail wagging to divert attention and sidled around to where she was sitting and as the sandwich got nearer I went for it... No Luck. D’s mum was just too quick and I missed out, however I raised the dog food alarm and D got me some VIP’s instead. After lunch we ran another 14 kms and found a nice big road side stop for rest up for the night. I’ve had a good roll in the gravel and a bit of a chin wag with D and everything seemed to be on track with her so now it’s time to retire.

Running with you soon
