I am exhausted. It has been quite a week-end. I started Friday as normal, up bright and early and off to the park for the daily walk. It was cooler so I got an extra-long walk and met up with my buddies Colby and Frederick. Those to pups are full of energy and can’t focus on the smells at the park as well as I do. Thankfully they know to say, “Hello” and then leave me to my ‘work’. On the way home I found a quarter that I was planning on to use to buy me some treats, but then remember that Arizona Animal Welfare League’s 18th WALK TO SAVE ANIMALS was the next day. I decided that the money would be better off going to my ‘alma mater’.
After I got home and had breakfast, and rested a bit I got to ride in the truck! I so love to ride in the truck. I always have to ride ‘shotgun’ and there is nothing better than hanging my head out the window enjoying the breeze. I went to see my buddy Radisson and hung out with him most of the day. I found out the joys of a ‘hot rock massage’ as I laid on the gravel in the yard and even rubbed my back on it a few times. I was surprised that Rad got in the truck with me. He had to ride in the back because I always ride shotgun.
I had a nice evening with the ‘houseguest’ and made sure he behaved himself. Luckily all my toys had been put away as he likes to tear them apart. I don’t know why he can’t respect toys, they are so much fun and you have to take care of your things.
Saturday, started as usual Radisson and I went on the morning walk to the park. I must say that boys can slow you down, having to stop at every tree, pole, bush, rock to … well you know. Again it was a nice long walk and we saw Colby again. After breakfast it was off the WALK TO SAVE ANIMALS and Rad came with us. Rad didn’t want to stay in back and joined me in the front seat before we got out of the driveway. This was Rad’s first time going (my 9th!) so I showed him the ropes. I was so excited to be there once again that I called out a couple of times so people would know I was there.
I ran into some of my friends that I see every year. I met a new person who thought I was Maddie, from Maddie On Things. I was flattered that someone thought I was so famous. But then again I am ‘famous’ at this walk since I like to ‘sing’ as I walk. I ran into a volunteer who I hadn’t seen since the day I was adopted she recognized me right off and even remember my old name “Autumn”. As always it was great fun and it was an extra walk!
I spent most of the rest of Saturday and Sunday, resting. I did get in daily walk but it was nice to have a lazy day. Radisson kept me a little busy as he like to bark at every little noise he hears; then again he isn’t here all the time so he doesn’t know to routine. That’s okay because he was tired too.

Bol, Miss Penny, what a weekend! Ridin' in the truck and goin' to a special place where they actually let you outa the truck to see everything! Bet your nose is about wore out! Good work, showin' 'em how it's done at the special Walk!
Bol, that's too funny, about boys slowing you down on walks! I know what you mean! Sometimes I have to jump back when examining a wonderful scent 'cause my brofur comes along and thinks that spot needs some of his added.
Good work, all you guys who went on the 'Walk To Save Animals', getting the word out to folks that there is a problem.
