Sebastian here to tell you about my encounter with a ginormous Labrador retriever.
I was told that we were going to see a big dog. She said, “He won’t eat you, I promise.” I’ve heard that before.
I was sitting peacefully, enjoying the sunshine on this big rock waiting to meet the animal when she asked me, “Well, what do you think?”
It all began to remind me of two fairy tales. One of which was Little Red Riding Hood when she looks at the wolf and says, “My, what big eyes you have.”
The other fairy tale it made me think of was The Gingerbread Man. Remember when he wants to go across the river and the fox tells him to get on his back and he’d carry him across? Then he tells him to climb up on his head as the water rises.
Eventually he says climb up on my nose and we all know what happened to the Gingerbread Man after that. It certainly didn’t make me feel very confident.
But if you look at this photo of me sitting on his big stick, he looks like he’s smiling. I kept saying “Nice doggie. Nice, nice doggie.”
I like looking at him from way back here the best of all. Way, way back here.
