I got to go on a two week vacation to South Dakota. Mom and dad decided to drive this time, so I got to go too. Our first night was in Colorado and it was snowing and cold. I didn't care, I got to sleep in the room with mom and dad. After that we drove the rest of the way to Aberdeen South Dakota. We got there around 11:30 at night. I had to stay in the garage with Sam, our friends yellow lab. It wasn't so bad, we had a kennel inside with a heater and a doggy door that went outside, so we had the run of the place.
It was cold though, mom said the average temperature was around 30, i've never been in that kind of cold before. We hunted ducks and pheasants and boy was the water cold. We had one morning that was 16 degrees and really windy. Mom got a picture of me with frozen whiskers. I refused to get into the water that day. There was this stuff mom called ice and I didn't like it. I figured with the wind they could wait for the ducks to float to the shore. I just wanted to get back in my kennel in the truck where it was nice and warm.
While we were there mom found someone with a litter of chocolate puppies. She picked one out and our friends picked out another. I now have a new baby sister! Mom hasn't decided on a name yet, but I don't need that. I absolutly love her, and mom says I'm a good big brother. We have so much fun wrestling and running all around our new house.
But I am glad to be home in the warm weather, even though it's been getting in the 90's. It feels so good to lie in the sun!
