Changing your Mindset

Nell: Would you kindly stop photographing our training session?

Me: You’re not training. You’re sitting in a field catching biscuits.

Nell: Haven’t you noticed all the Agility Apparatus surrounding us?

Me: You never use it, Nell. You just walk around it.

Nell: That’s still using it.

Me: Not really.

Nell: It’s just a question of changing your mindset.

Me: Is it?

Nell: Of course. Now, everyone needs to increase their fitness levels.

Me: I can’t argue with that.

Nell: The last few months have been a little too sluggish, especially for some.

Me: I had Covid, Nell.

Nell: Yes, I’m aware of that, but now the time has come to put Sluggishness aside.

Me: Oh dear.

Nell: And embrace Exuberance.

Me: Exuberance? I don’t think I can manage that yet. Can’t I just be mildly enthusiastic?

Nell: No. You have to Seize the Day.

Me: Have you been drinking espressos with The Cat?

Nell: No, I might have had a cappuccino with Babycakes Gillespie, but it was decaf.

Me: Well, Chloe is going to be very impressed with you when she sees you later.

Nell: Yes. A light massage, a little lasering and some hydrotherapy is exactly what I need.

Me: Don’t just float, Nell. Because I know that’s what you do when you get tired.

Nell: I do not. I merely lift my paws briefly and meditate.

Me: If that’s what you want to call it.

Nell: So, how about a few laps around the field?

Me: You’re not expecting me to run, are you?

Nell: No, a brisk walk will do.

Me: Are you going to join me? Or are your laps going to be out of the water bowl? See what I did there?

Nell: Just start walking and remember to swing your arms.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
