Hi Eveybody! Well, let's see what's been happening since Mom last posted for me. Last weekend, Mom & Dad went trail riding for the first time. They just went for the day so us dogs had to stay home. My Weim sister was really upset. When we hear Dad get the big dully truck out of the garage we think it always means we're going camping with the big trailer. Not so this time. :-( Wren was running & jumping all around, but I knew when Mom put me in the kennel early that morning that it meant we would not be going. I guess Dad's new Arabian did really well his first time out on the trails. Mom said he looked around a lot in camp but was a good boy & took all the activies in stride as there were several people camping. Mom said the trails were a bit muddy but nothing too bad. We were just glad when we saw them pull in the drive that evening from riding. Mom's Arabian, which is retired, stays home so I still needed to watch him & bark at him when he would come up for a drink of water so I had work to do even though they were gone all day.
Yesterday, Mom & Dad had to go to a funeral so we didn't get to do much at all. When they got home, they brought the horses up & spent most of the evening grooming on them, ignoring us. :-( I wouldn't stay out of Dad's horse's stall though while he was vacuuming him--I did get in trouble for that! :-( Geeze! I just like to snoop around in the sawdust & his horse doesn't seem to care, but Mom & Dad don't like me in the stalls when the horses are in. Heck, Mom & Dad couldn't find me one evening & was calling & looking everywhere. Finally, they noticed I was in Mom's horse's stall asleep in the corner! She had accidently shut the stall door not noticing I was in there. Scooter, Mom's horse, didn't mind me in there at all & he never bothered me. I was just catching up on a few zzzzzzz's. Mom seems to forget I AM a 'herder' & like to be with the livestock. (rolling eyes in head)
Mom & Dad had planned to go trail riding again today, but it was pouring rain when they got up so their plans changed. They decided to go out for breakfast & then to Rural King to look for a water tank for the back of Dad's truck. AND I got to go with them. Hey! I LOVE to go to Rural King! It's a great farm store & they give away free popcorn & all the little kids always give me some of their popcorn. Whewwwww Whoooooo! That works for me!
The sun popped out this afternoon & it turned out to be a nice day after all. We all went mushroom hunting in the woods for a bit. No luck & Mom was afraid everyone would get ticks on them. Mom said they say the ticks are bad this year. Uck! I hate those nasty things. The new heart wormer I am on is suppose to kill fleas & ticks immediately if they get on me. Mom said it was expensive enough it better work. :-)
Well that's about all that has been happening around here. Hope everyone is enjoying the Spring so far! Remember the Easter bunny comes next weekend. I am NOT going to chase him because he brings treats & surprises! :-)
Bark at you later.......Shelby
