Oh yes, I heard that soft jingle again. This was my most favorite sound in the world. I quickly went bounding down the stairs. There daddy was, holding the keys casually in his hand. He smiled, as I sat near him. He asked me, “You want to come?” Of course, I always want to go. It gives me a thrill and joy that I can’t even begin to explain. I knew he was teasing me. He knew how much I loved it. So, I played along. I started jumping and dancing just how he liked it. I saw the smile on his face turn to laughter as he watched me very amused.

But, I kept at it. “Was he only pulling my leg?” This was a game we played on many occasions. As I stopped and looked at him, muttering a hmmm, he opened the door. Then he beeped. And I knew we were on! He quickly opened the boot and I jumped right in and made myself comfortable in my favorite spot.  I looked at him impatiently, “What are you waiting for?” He slammed the boot shut.

I waited excitedly as mommy came and waved my bye. I wagged my tail vigorously but she could not see.

Yes, I was going for my car ride. Yippee! Life was good!


My dog, Coco, absolutely loves going for car rides. He begs and pleads every time he hears us so much as take the car keys from the slot. Sometimes, just to indulge him, we take him for a short ride in the neighborhood even when we don’t have to go anywhere!

  19. I dont have a dog but had a puppy for a brief period in my teens. He loved rides too, but he would recognize the way every time we went to the Vet and would try his best to get the hell out of there!

  20. All these posts about dogs, makes me wish I had one too 🙁

    It’s nice to see how alert they are, when they hear the footsteps of their masters approaching or when they hear sounds like the keys being taken for the car. They are the best companions that we have, so it is good to reciprocate a percent of their love for us.

    Sweet. 🙂
