I used to dream about alligators chasing me, now I dream about alligators chasing my dogs. I don’t know if that means I’ve become less selfish or what. But also now that my home base is Florida, alligators are a real threat. Actually, alligators are why I stopped going to this dog park. Fences are why I started going back to that dog park.
I have beagles so one thing that’s true for that breed is they go everywhere nose first. One of my fears is that their noses take them to these dangerous places where alligators and snakes live.
For now, though, it’s only in my dreams and I wake up very happy that it’s not real life! I also have these dreams, too. I try hard to protect my dogs from harm whether it’s gators, snakes, busy roads, eating bad things, and a million other things. Do you do the same for your pets?
