Scary stuff!

I gave Mom a BIG scare this afternoon on my walk. One of the farms next to the Nature Preserve has horses, and one of them was in the field next to road into the Preserve today. Well, I started out my off lead hike just like usual- went about halfway down the road AWAY from the field where she was- and then suddenly decided she was IRRESISTABLE. I dashed over and jumped the fence to play with her. Mom immediately went back to try to help me... NO LUCK. I would NOT listen. I was learning to herd, Mom says... but almost learned the VERY hard way when she started bucking and trying to kick at me a few times. I was staring her down whenever I could, and barking my head off at her, dodging hooves and staying out of the way when she would lay down to roll on her back... you name it. It took Mom half an hour to get me away from her, and she THINKS I got a little kick to the jaw just before that. I'm eating and acting just fine so she knows I'm OK. Unfortunately, until they decide to move her again, I think my freedom days at the Preserve are over. Mom is NOT happy with me.

Mom tells me that there's a big hurricane on the way to visit some of my pals, and I wanted to say that you are all in my thoughts and prayers today. Be safe!

 

OMD!

I have found HEAVEN!!! I used to think that the Preserve was, but I was mistaken. I have been to the DOG PARK and it's even BETTER than the Preserve!!! There's a new one outside of Parkersburg that Mom took me to today. It JUST opened this weekend, and I must say, I approve! I met two labbies, a Golden and a Beagle that played with me until I was so tired that I crashed in the car on the way home. Mom says Sissy used to do that, and she laughed. I don't think I've EVER had so much darned fun!! *giggles and races around happily as he dreams during his recovery nap*

Thanks to Spring and Petey for the lovely birthday gifts!! I had a very lovely bday and many special treats to celebrate, though Mom says we have to wait to go to Mickey D's until tomorrow. I will report back to let you know if the wait was worth it, BOL.

 

My birthday!!!

Mom tells me I'm a year old today!! WHOOOOO HOOOOOO! We've got big plans for after pay day (Monday, if the check arrives as she expects)- McDonalds and MAYBE a trip to the dog park in Athens. If not Athens, we'll be going hiking somewhere closer. Currently I'm resting and getting ready for a walk at the Preserve later and maybe a treat or two at Grandma's. We'll see!

 

SKUNKS!!!

I had so much fun this morning! I met a black and white play thing and I was having a ball chasing him around until he poked his tail up and sprayed me with nasty stuff in the face! Mom says they're called skunks- all I know is that they're FUN! And the treatment for the stink is NOT worth the price of fun. I've had a tomato bath- four cans of tomato soup, four of tomato juice, part of a container of ketchup, and two of tomato paste. Plus two regular baths with vinegar rinses. DO NOT LIKE BATHS!!! Especially when it involves stuff on my face. I just hope this stink is gone soon so I don't have to have so many baths!!

 

HOT HOT HOT!!

Mom and I have been having FUN the last two days in our attempts to beat the horrific heat we've had! We've been going to the Locks near our home and going swimming in the river, where Mom can swim, too! She scared me this morning- she went under water ((Mom adds DELIBERATELY!)) and BOY did THAT get my attention! I came swimming as fast as I could to find her. I also got a scare when the current was WAY worse today than yesterday and it was all I could do to keep from being pushed down stream when we were in the main part of the river. But because we BOTH got scared at that point, we went toward shore, where we found a deep pool where Mom could get under water herself and I could just SWIM without struggling. I swam for an HOUR today, in between running around the beach and playing with Mom. FUN FUN FUN, even in this awful heat.

 

Frogs and Bees!

I met two critters in the last 24 hours! The first was a small frog who jumped out of the water while I was swimming last evening- BOY did HE surprise me! The second was a bumblebee that I met up close and personal this afternoon... he scared me, but I don't think he actually STUNG me, though I did jump and whine once... no swelling though, thank Dog! I didn't stop playing with him though! GAH this is a crazy world- little bugs that bite and critters jumping out of Dog's own pool! NOT FUNNY!

 

The next step!

Finished Basic Obedience this past week- just waiting for the next set of classes to start in August. We're thinking Rally O would work out well for us, as we're not ready for agility and they are working on sorting out the other advanced obedience classes. Can't WAIT to see how it goes- Mom says she HAS to get me heeling, LOL. Not likely, says I!

 

Happy Independence Day!

Wishing all you pups a wonderful Independence Day! May we never forget the sacrifice of those who fought for the rights we enjoy, and may God bless America!
