I’ve said many times that I don’t like riding in cars. My tummy gets all queasy, and I get really nervous. I have to give my mommy credit though, because she keeps dragging me along with her on short car trips.
Two recent car trips I took with mommy, was to drop something off for Taylor, and then pick her up at the bowling alley. Going there, mommy took just me in the car. Nala wanted to go, but mommy was in a hurry and I gave her my cutest puppy face to reel her in. She fell for it and she put my seat belt harness on. Nala looked at me with envy and pride.
After we said our goodbyes to Nala and daddy, mommy and I went out to the car. She opened the passenger side door, and I began to have that sinking feeling I always get when traveling in a car. I didn’t want to, but I jumped in anyway.
I tried to pretend I wasn’t in a car,
but closing my eyes only worked for a second.
As we drove, I realized that riding in the car wasn’t
as bad as I had remembered it. My tummy was a little nervous,
but I didn’t feel too sick. Maybe this is the start of something good?
There was so much to look at, especially at night.
I was actually a bit sad when we arrived back home.
A couple of hours later, mommy had to go pick up Taylor at the bowling alley. Of course I gave mommy that “I wanna go too” look, and since we had a good experience earlier, she didn’t hesitate in reaching for my seat belt harness.
Again we went out to the car. Mommy opened the door, but I didn’t jump to get in. I don’t know why I was hesitating, but I just stood there with both front paws on the seat. Mommy lifted up my back legs, and I eventually got in.
But this trip was different.
Nala came with us!
Nala LOVES riding in the car, but I’m sure she’s
not happy about having to ride in the back seat now.
But the back seat makes me more nervous, and also,
the seats are smaller than in the front.
It’s been a while since Nala rode in the car. She almost forgot
that there are so many things to see, especially at night!
When we reached the bowling alley, we
parked and waited for Taylor to come out.
I watched all the people as they
walked in and out of the building.
Mommy knows how to entertain herself. Teehee!
Nighttime people watching — it’s my new hobby!
Taylor came out eventually, and we drove home. I am so happy that I didn’t get sick! So is my family. They’re gonna start taking me out in the car more often, now that I haven’t gotten sick on these quick trips. If not getting sick in the car is part of growing up, I’m all for it.
