Bunny here at the keyboard to share my creative way of staying in the 30/30 Challenge this week. I’m also telling you about something that made me happy this week for Miss Jey’s How To Be Happy Hop.
Monday was a no school day for Mom and a no work day for Dad. Normally, that would mean an extra hiking adventure of some kind for us. However, Jack Frost was working hard against us. It was downright frigid all day, and even though the thermometer got all the way up to twelve degrees in the afternoon, the wind chill didn’t make it feel like it was even close to that. It was looking like we were going to be stuck inside.
Still, I’m a hound who doesn’t like to quit, and neither do my humans. I reminded Mom that she still had a gift card for Bass Pro, and she got the hint. So, we bundled up and Dad warmed up the van, then we headed off to Bass Pro.
I knew I was going to like it when I saw the frozen waterfalls in the ponds outside the store. It seemed like a sign that Mother Nature hadn’t completely forsaken us. Anyway, we didn’t dilly dally outside for more than a moment. We headed right inside.
We came to the store so that we could walk around and get some exercise, but obviously, we couldn’t just power walk around the store, so we did some shopping and found a few things that we wanted to buy. Of course, it was hard to keep walking because so many people kept stopping us to talk about me and pet me. It’s not easy getting exercise when you’re a canine celebrity. Still, I enjoyed meeting the public and I love shopping. I even found a pair of pants for Mom that I approved of, since it looks like the Shepherd hair won’t stick to them too terribly.
I think it just goes to show that sometimes you have to be creative to meet challenges in life, and you have to be willing to pause and let people compliment you. I am so happy that Bass Pro lets us canines in to shop and that they were there on such a cold day. We didn’t get as much walking in as we’d have liked, but we did have a good time and our toes didn’t freeze off. I love meeting a good challenge!
