So I know what you’re thinking. Why on earth is there a dog on the highway?! Well… I wish I had the answer to that. I was just wandering around, trying to find something to eat for dinner – next thing I know, I’m on the road! I thought I could smell a yummy bacon treat. Oh boy, was I wrong!
Being stuck on the road with all these cars zipping by is horrifying! It reminds me of a time when I went on a road trip with my human after dark.
Oh, that was a scary trip. My human wanted to visit some of their family, so we packed up our things and got in the car – at night! Driving during the day is super fun, but at night?? How do humans even see anything! Every time I looked out the window, all I saw were trees and streetlights going by super duper fast.
And when I looked out the windshield, wow was that scary! Just seeing the road zipping by, cars just barely missing us… it’s something you never notice when you’re driving during the day!
So long story short: I have a healthy fear of roads now, day or night!
That meant that whenever I got on the road, I’d freeze up! Today is no exception. And I snuck out of my yard to go for a walk, so my human is nowhere in sight, either. I’m all on my own! But some nice people have come to help me!
The worst part about being stuck on the road is not just being trapped in place – it’s having to watch everyone else navigate all that traffic! It’s always so dangerous to stop in the middle of the road – imagine a whole group of people stopping!
And this can be a bit disorienting! Where do I go? Who do I go to?
This is definitely like that road trip I mentioned. My human had to stop at a dark gas station, and there were all these other people around! It felt like we were being surrounded. I have no idea how my human was brave enough to be out with all those people all alone! I was frozen in the backseat.
Well, the best thing to do when you’re stuck on the road is to get OFF the road! As scared and disoriented as I am, it’s better than being vulnerable on the road. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my late-night road trips, it’s that being in a vehicle is way safer than not, so I better team up with these people!
As soon as we’re off the road, I’m gonna find my way back home. Luckily I’m not too far, and it’s still daylight out, so I should be able to get there soon – before my human gets home from work! She won’t be happy to know that I’ve been wandering away. Can’t wait to get back home!
