Lately my assistant and translator has been underperforming. She’s so distracted on our runs that we can run up and down a whole mountain without her even noticing that she’s running, let alone the handsome and wise coach trying to remind her to enjoy the moment. When I ask her to take down notes on a story I want to tell, she can only pay attention for a minute or two before she starts doing something else, which is very disruptive for a busy dog like me. I hear why when I tune in to her thoughts on the doggie telepaphone. The only thing that there’s space for in there is deciding what she wants to be when she grows up, and it’s so loud that I can’t hear myself think.
