The "zoomies"

Jake, our 3.5-year-old Italian Greyhound, has retraced his youthful steps tonight. When he was a puppy, he would have bursts of sporadic energy and run like crazy around the coffee table, down the hallway, and repeat. We called these times the zoomies. Usually they would happen two or three times before bedtime. Though is a “mini” greyhound, he can still top 35 mph. And on hard wood floors, WATCH OUT.

Tonight the summer air has taken hold of him. We went on a walk, and he could hardly contain himself. Look at that oil spot over there! What about that telephone pole! I smell garbage! Holy COW!

Maybe it’s because I watched Marley & Me over the weekend, but I got a little sentimental. We roamed the basement floors and growled at each other like the good ole puppy days.

It’s definitely a wonderful summer in the making. Even Jake thinks so. (He’s pooped and sleeping next to me on the couch.)
