Boy Am I Tired

Yay! Mom took me to the River today. It's a dogpark by Minnehaha Park. We were lucky and found a parking spot right away not too far away. Mom has a weak bladder so we had to use the portable potty in the parking lot. I hate when Mom takes me in there. Dad tells her she should leave me outside but Mom always wants me safely by her, so look what I have to endure. As it turned out, it's good that Mom doesn't listen to Dad, because no sooner do we leave the potty and Mom is just shutting the door and this humongous dog comes charging at us. He looked like that dog from the movie Hooch. He was huge. He didn't look all that friendly to Mom and she loves all dogs. So she got in between us and he knocked her down so she scraped her arm. He apparently got loose as the lady was taking him out of the car. You know how we always get excited after a ride. She yells to Mom, don't worry he's friendly, right before he knocked Mom down. Mom wasn't very happy but she didn't say anything to her, she just mumbled under her breath to me. If I was out there all by myself who knows what would have happened, I would have been really scared. We saw him down by the river later and he was still charging everyone. Mom says if you have a dog that big, you better control him better. Mom got knocked down by Maleka in November accidentally and ended up in the emergency room and on crutches for awhile. Big dogs should have brakes or something installed.

So anyway, we walked through the woods, and then headed down to the water. The water was nice and warm. We walked in the water up to our ankles and I helped Mom find flat rocks that she could skip. She's not very good at it, but I encourage her. She did manage a three. We found a real pretty shell for Mom's desk. We stayed there for about two hours and met a lot of people and other dogs.

On the way home we stopped at a McDonalds and the nice lady there gave me a bone. She probably didn't know that Mom had got me two hamburgers. They sure were yummy.

Well I'd better sign off. I am one tired dog. Romping through the woods, running up the steps, splashing around in the water and greeting everyone has me dogone tired. Night night. It was a wonderful day.

P.S. I did not see any pirates and no buried treasure. There was a big hole, so I bet we were just a day late.
