Whose Idea Was This?

Another one of your daft ideas. “Let’s have a walking holiday,” you said, “It’ll be great, just the two of us.” Never thought to ask me what I wanted. Next thing I know you’re off buying boots and poles; a tent and a backpack. I knew it wouldn’t end well. Look at us. You marching off down another endless, dusty track and me trudging along behind you. I’m telling you now, next year we’re going back to normal. You can have your week on a sunny beach somewhere, while I’ll be in some luxury kennels where I’m pampered and appreciated.

  1. I love your title. It’s one of our frequent family sayings, in fact, so I chuckled before I even read the story. We had a few ventures into camping in recent years, which produced the saying more than once – the camping equipment is now sold. I love your doggy narrator, and the story works really well.
