“Still trying to think of what breed to get, huh?” Fleegle says.
“Yeah, how about an Australian Shepherd?” I say.
“Have you ever seen an Aussie take a nap?”
“Don’t you find that odd? I mean, in our daily drives around town we see lots of Labradors taking it easy in their yards all the time, napping on the front porch, napping in the sun on the front lawn.”
“Or napping in the bamboo like you.”
“Exactly, but never an Aussie. They’re always up and moving about, like they’re herding flies. Don’t underestimate the importance of a napping dog, Raud, because if your new buddy from Australia isn’t napping, neither are you, and you do love your naps.”
“Hmm… You have a point.” I scratch my head. “What about a Border Collie?”
“I’ll ask you again, have you ever seen a Border Collie take a nap? Same answer and throw in a lot of staring. They really love to stare. Have you ever tried to take a nap while someone is staring at you?”
