Here's a distant view of the beach at Raccoon Lake where humans can lay by the water and go swimming. Dogs aren't allowed in the swimming area (no complaints here), but mom was told she could take me just past the roped off area to put me in the lake. I was given no choice in the matter. And promptly ran back out as soon as she dropped me in the water. But I have to admit it did feel really good to cool off after our long hike in the woods! I perked back up and started wagging my tail. But don't misunderstand... I'll still never willingly get myself all wet like that.
In fact, there was another beach along a trail that I walked right up to to get a drink... until the waves started coming in! That movement and noise drew me back away from the shoreline. No thanks. I want none of that.
Though, digging the sand was pretty fun. Notice all the sand on my nose. Mom kept wiping it off, but it just kept reappearing. No idea how that happened.
When we finally left the trails for the swings and play area (at my little cousin's request), we happened upon this startling sight...
Can you see who is swinging in this video?
Yeah. It's a dog. A funny, swing-loving dog. The owner said he "loves" it. I guess he might, since I'd be jumping out first chance I got. He just seems to be chilling.
Silly dogs. I'm too regal for that kind of behavior.
That's right! This lucky pup got another cool toy to review!
The Kong Squiggles is a long, rope-like toy that looks and feels like a stuffy, with a squeaker on both ends and a bungee-like cord in the middle. From the video you'll be able to tell how fun this new toy is! I love squeaky toys!
And since it's made by Kong, it's strong and well-made. Though, mom can't call it a kong toy, since that is reserved for my favorite thing mom puts peanut butter in! Yum!
Though, I have to apologize. Our video editor isn't working and I had an itchy back about halfway through this short video that I just have to scratch. So please disregard that silliness.
Mom and I just got back from vacation last weekend, and it's taken me a long time to catch up on sleep! We had some noisy neighbors that kept me up and made me anxious.
But we still had some great times! We stayed at a lodge right on Raccoon Lake. During the day, we would go walk trails through the woods surrounding the lake. I loved it, but mom had a hard time keeping up!
