Ft. Ben... Again!

Last weekend we went to the State Park again. This time, with the whole family!

But my cousin Sophia wasn't content in her stroller...


She wanted to walk me!


How cute is that?!
What can I say? All the kids love me!

Playtime and Torture

Last night, we went to the dog park again, where three big dogs were all playing tug-o-war together!


Shannon let go for a minute, but decided to get back in there. And then, there’s me in the background. Waiting for Sandy to show up.


Lots of dogs came to play, including Sandy! But then, Mom said we had to go to Pet Supplies Plus to get a bath.


This is how much I like baths.


Yes, it’s pure torture. This is the face of misery.

I hate baths

Ft. Ben Adventure!

On Sunday, Mom took me to a local State Park. Ft. Ben has several trails, and the one we went on was really nice, paved with several park benches to sit and rest along the way.

It was very pretty, though my nose was to the ground 90% of the time.

It was a cool day, perfect for hiking. But the walk was over 2 ½ miles, so Mom stopped several times to try to get me to drink some water. But I wasn’t interested. I just wanted to keep going!

There were lots of other dogs that were walking along the trail too. But I wasn’t allowed to play with them.

Finally, we got back to the car, where I collapsed. And I still wouldn’t drink anything. Wonder why Mom calls me stubborn? Ft. Ben was so much fun! Mom says we get to go back next Sunday with some other people, if the weather is nice! I’m crossing my paws!

Of Mutts and Muck

Yesterday Mom did some volunteering at the Humane Society, where she found me. She came home with pictures of a super cute Basset/Rottweiler Mix.

Mom said she was very tempted to bring him home! But hopefully, someone at our park will adopt him. Then, I’d get to play with him at the park, but yet keep my house to myself and mom. I’m a bit overly protective of my food, treats, and toys. And anything that belongs to my mom. Once, I got mad at my buddy Gizmo at the park for even coming over and sniffing my mom’s folding chair that was laying on the ground.

So, anyway, we got to the park early, since it was such a nice day.

But no one showed up for a half an hour!

Mom would play hide and seek with me. Which I normally do not like when other people are around. I tend to freak out when I can’t find Mom. Even when I’m clear on the other side of the park, sniffing or digging (Shh, don’t tell Mom), I always keep Mom in my line of sight so I can look up and check on her every few minutes… or seconds. But Mom thought it’d be fun to hide from me a couple times. To get me running. It worked. Mom said it helped me get some exercise while we were waiting on other dogs to show up. Well, it was kind of fun finding her. I sure was proud of myself when I found her!

But then, I was back to waiting.

Look out

FINALLY other dogs showed up, including Sandy my best bud. Well, the park was really wet after all the rain we had. I wasn’t getting as wet as some of the other dogs, but I did get wet from playing with them. And you know how I like sitting on my perch in the mulch around the trees… and how I like to roll… well mom wasn’t too happy to see this.

Rolling in mulch

Yes, that’s a mixture of slobber and mud on my face. Mom was thankful to have a towel in the car! She wiped me down well before she let me back in the house!

Ready to curl up on Mom’s lap and sleep the night away…

Home Again

We went to the park last night, since it was so nice out after days of rain. I didn't run around as much as mom thought I would. But when I got home, I zonked out.

Now You See It...


Oops. Where did it go? Those tricky balls. I can never hang on to them.
