We delude ourselves if we think dogs want to go anywhere ; we are the only animals that have an insatiable desire to see new places.
The desire is so strong in some they unwittingly engineer their own deaths and are held in awe for so doing.
My dog finds endless interest in where he happens to be and its not always easy to get him to move on. The ground , the trees , the grass and the fences ,to him , are as good as a book to me.
I’m forced to stand around but he is happy , nose to the ground. Some maintain it is their acute sense of smell, while we are egged on by our eyesight , but the migrant farsighted bird travels huge distances not to view the scenery, but to find a better place , because circumstances have changed.
Among the whole kingdom of the living man is the restless one , the seeker, the traveller and now he has set his sights on Mars.
