I had always heard that “dog’s can’t climb trees”, and used to believe it. “Indie” proved me wrong.
“Indie” — short for “Indiana Jones”, never heard the saying. Guess he didn’t know about his limitations. Any time one of our cats would climb a tree, he’d follow. After all, they were friends. Sometimes he’d climb about 12 feet or higher off the ground, and I’d have to bring a table around so he could jump down — without breaking a leg.
But isn’t it amazing…how we (as humans) believe what other people tell us as “fact”? Maybe we all should take note. Sometimes we believe what people say we CAN and CAN’T do. The more we hear it, the more we believe it.
Maybe we’d be better off seeing what we CAN do, and stop listening to what other people say are our short-comings.
