This past weekend we went to the mountains. We got there early Friday afternoon, but we didn't get to do much cause mom had a headache. A bunch of dad's friends came and took out our sofa and then when mom's headache went away, she cleaned and they moved furniture around. All we have now are two chairs and a loveseat which means no room for us dogs to cuddle with mom and dad while watching TV and that stinks! But the cabin was crowded with too much furniture so in a way I understand and will just sneak on the loveseat when mom or dad get up:) Later in the evening I smelled something outside and bugged mom to take me out. I immediately started looking for where the smell was coming from. Mom watched me and once she figured out that something was out there, she got a light and we went looking for it. It only took me a couple minutes to find the source of what I was smelling... it was a big possum! He climbed up a tree and was sitting there eating the leaves. Unlike my last encounter with a possum, this one just ignored us. I wanted sooooo bad to go after it, but mom wouldn't let me:( She did say I did great in showing her what was out there.
Saturday mom and dad power washed the cabin. I watched most of the time and even tried to help. Mom had the sprayer and I would watch the water come out trying to figure why it only came out once in a while. Then I saw mom pulling a trigger and I knew and waited for each time she did it then I tried to catch the water. I know not too smart when it's coming out with that much force, but I was having fun:) When they were finished, mom took us for a buta ride to the tree. When we got there I knew something big was there not too long ago. Mom put fresh flowers there for her grandparents the other week and they were all over the ground and the coffee can they were in was crushed with teeth marks. It was the bear! I was sniffing all over the place and let me tell you, he was there not too long ago. Mom told me to find him and I followed his trail down into the hollow but mom called me back cause she didn't want to walk that far. Plus, mom knew he was long gone and we wouldn't find him anyway. One of these days I AM going to find that boy and I can't wait! We stayed at the tree for a little then mom took a ride around and us dogs ran and played and it was lots of fun:D That was pretty much all we did cause mom and dad were so tired we all just relaxed the rest of the night.
Sunday we headed home early cause mom and dad had some things to do. I wasn't happy about it,but I dealt with it. Mom did clip and bath us and that felt good cause I had small briars in my fur cause my hair was getting so long. Mom is usually good about keeping us trimmed, but with her headaches lately, it's been hard for her. But now that I'm all groomed up I am looking and feeling good!
This week is going to be quiet. I know we have to go to the vet tomorrow for our shots and for me to get checked and be sure I'm over my UTI which I'm pretty sure I am. We may stop at Manor Care since it's just down the road from the vet, but mom said it depends on what time we get done at the vet. If it's too late then we can't go cause the older people go to bed early, like 7-730pm. I know, that's TOO early for me to sleep that's for sure! I do have search training Sunday and I'm looking forward to it cause it's been a while since I practiced with the team. Mom said I've been doing really good practicing with her and she just hopes I show the team how good I've been doing on Sunday. Not to worry mom, I will!
