Today Hershey and I got our brushings early, and we did not do a bye-bye daddy. I know what that means now: an adventure!! We got in the car again, and we didn't go furry far at all. We got out at a place where there was a lot of water but no sand. We were still in the city. Right on the edge, where the city ends and it's all water.
We walked along the edge fur a little way, and came to a place where lots of people were going in and out of places mommy called "shops." We went into one, and Hershey and I got some yummy treats! It smelled doggy in there, but we didn't see any other furs. Then daddy or mommy went into a few more shops, but we had to wait outside. Once we went around a corner and saw a lot of fishy-smelling, doggy-looking animals sleeping out on beds that were floating on the water! Mommy called them sea lions. I think she got that wrong. They didn't look anything like lions. Evfurrywhere we went, people kept wanting to say hello and pet me and Hershey. They were furry nice.
The next thing that happened, we walked along a narrow kind of sidewalk thing that felt sort of loose underfoot. It led to one of those funny-looking cars on the water that mommy calls "boats." She said this one was a "ferry." It was big! We went inside, and we climbed some stairs, and then we climbed some more stairs and we were outside again but way on top of the boat! It felt funny, rolling this way and that, and then I felt a big rumble and we started moving! I could tell, because the wind was blowing in my face! So I did what I do on car rides: I laid down and took a nap.
It was a furry short nap. The ferry stopped, and we went back down all the stairs and out the door and up another narrow walk, and we were in a new place. I could smell lots of yummy people food, and lots of doggies, and that salty smell that big water has. We walked around a little, and then mommy and daddy found some tables outside and tied me and Hershey up while people brought them food. Daddy gave us special treats!
After we ate, we all walked around a little more. Mommy or daddy would go into a shop while the rest of us waited outside. People would stop to pet us and take our pictures! Finally we went back to the ferry. We got back on, and it rumbled, and I took another nap, and then we got off and we were back where we started. Some more walking and we found our car, got in and came home.
So I learned that a boat is different than a car. It's way bigger. If you want, you can walk around on it! It takes you places, but it goes on the water, instead of the road. It makes the wind blow in your fur. And you can meet lots of nice people! I like boats!
That sounds so cool, I's never been on a boat!
Ive never been on a boat either, sounds like a great time, glad your day was good with Mommy and Daddy
Nope, no boats fur us land-locked Idunno pups either.
Sure sounds like you had fun!
What a fun day you and your famiily had. Daddy needs to stay home from work more often.
You are learning all kinds of fun things, and doing them is even better!
Nice pics, too!
It can be lots of fun when the daddy person stays home from work. I really like taking the ferry across our river and I am glad you enjoyed your first ferry ride. Hopefully you will get lots more!
