Our family has always said that having Nathan around is just like having a Golden Retriever puppy; he is the world’s biggest tease and loves to stir something up if something isn’t already stirred.
Case in point? Our family’s visit to Jockey’s Ridge when Nathan was home in May.
Steve and Sarah were striding purposefully, peacefully, and contentedly along.
All was well. All was grand. The Golden Retriever Puppy Son was not up to his usual tricks. He was walking along with unusual calmness and restraint.
Until he glanced over and noticed the peace and calm emitting from The Dad and Sister Tableau.
And then? The puppy instincts kicked in! He thought of a plot to stir the pot!
Yes! It was a Golden Retriever Puppy Son Pot-Stirring Plot!
See if you can possibly guess what the plot consisted of.
If you guessed, “Running in circles” you were oh so right!
And then to make him even happier, he actually compelled Steve to join him in the circle chase! Nothing makes a Golden Retriever Puppy Son any happier than to be chased! In circles! Yay!
Sarah waited for the Golden Retriever Puppy Son and his father to cease and desist in the continuing circling of her person.
Finally. The excitement was over. The circling ceased. The Puppy Son trotted off to ponder his next moves.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love this fella?
