Whew, what a weekend! Mom took me, just me, to Lake Tahoe with her. We visited Grandma and Great Grandma and also our Aunt in a town called Placerville.
We got to stay in a motel again. This one had a patio that overlooked the woods. You wouldn't believe how good it smelled there. I've never seen so many stars. I've been to Grandma's house before, but we always stayed there. Now she has a neighbor who isn't very nice to other dogs (No dog park for him) so we stayed somewhere else. It was lovely.
We walked all around Placerville on Saturday and I was allowed in every store (except food stores) and got petted by almost everyone who saw me. They said I was so well behaved they would rather have me in the antique shop that some humans. I had just been to the hair salon so I was looking mighty fine, if I do say so myself.
Sunday we went hiking near Lake Tahoe. We could actually see it from a point on the trail. We hiked a long way and then I got to swim in a lake called Aloha. What cold water! I was so thirsty that I didn't mind though. My mom packed me a little lunch and a water bowl for the trip, but I was too excited to use the bowl and didn't even want to eat. On the way back we took a boat ride across another lake. That was pretty neat! There was actually another Standard Poodle lady on the same trail. We were quite the couple. People couldn't get over the poodles in the mountains. Don't they know that we are bred for hunting? We are water dogs with webbed feet and everything.
Mom drove home through California's gold country (Hwy 49) and we stopped at all of the little historic towns and shopped. We even had lunch and ice cream in Sutter Creek. What a wonderful weekend. I think my brothers and sisters are a little jealous, but Mom said she would take them sometime too. (P.S. That's Mom in the red. She hates the picture of her, but I snuck it in so you could see who loves all of us so much.)
