Don’t Underestimate Me

Now, each of us has his own special gift
And you know this was meant to be true,
And if you don’t underestimate me,
I won’t underestimate you.

— Bob Dylan, “Dear Landlord”
At the Dog Park

My owner and I took a walk tonight and we saw a woman we’ve seen many times before. She is about 40 years old in human years and a little bit chubby.

Tonight she was playing with a volleyball in front of her house with her kids and another girl. She was very good! She was bumping and setting with aplomb!

“I underestimated her,” my owner said. “She looks like a chubby housewife but she’s also a good volleyball player.”

That happens to me a lot too. As you can see in the photo, I’m not very big compared to some other dogs but I have the heart of a much larger animal.
