I’m a dog who is treated well and sometimes I’m a bit of a baby. The water may look flat, but that’s an illusion. We’re about to head around the corner of an island and into open seas – and I don’t like to get wet.
Did that last statement surprise you? I’m a dog who lives on a boat, spends hours every day on the beach, and my car is a dinghy. So what am I talking about? Seriously, getting wet annoys me. Kristina knows it. Sometimes she humours me – like in the photo above and holds me tight, but other times, she just says, “Suck it up, buttercup.”
“What does that mean?” I bark.
“You live on the ocean, pup,” she says.
The dinghy bounces and spray hits my face. Then I look my cutest and Kristina gives in, and you can see the results. I get to ride on her lap.
“Suck it up, buttercup,” I bark and make Kristina laugh.
Woof Woof . . .
