“We should take the dogs for an AR.” AR is short for Adventure Ride. The dogs know what that means, so we abbreviate it.

The dogs are cooped up inside while we’re at work, so we like to take them out when we can. When it’s really hot or cold, we’ll take them for a short drive instead of a walk.

We wait until we’re ready to go before we say the words, “Do you want to go for a drive?” Sunny gets excited, howls, and races around the house. Charlie waits patiently…




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
