Today was Memorial Day, so mom and dad thought we should walk more of the Minute Man Trail. I was running low on dog food so we first went to the pet store. We got dog and cat food, a new rawhide bone, some doggie treats and, of course, my cookie. It was shaped like a bone and had carob on it. Carob is like chocolate but it isn't bad for dogs like chocolate is. It was yummy. I also got some duck chews. They are good too. After the pet store we went to a couple of plant nurseries. Mom wanted a second rhododendron for the front of the house. Daddy went in to get it while mom stayed in the car with me. It was hot so she kept the AC going. Daddy also got a second lilac bush. Mom was happy because this one was the dark purple kind that mom loves. After we brought the food and plants home, we headed off for the Minute Man Trail. There was a nice breeze. Lots of people were there. Some were walking, some jogging and lots of them were on bicycles. By the end of the walk, I wasn't scared of bicycles any more. I just look at them now, but keep walking at a normal pace. Before I would get freaked out. We walked a long time! Mom guesses that we went about 4 1/2 miles. I was tired. During the walk I made a poo- poo. Mom had to carry the bag. She says that she always left "holding the bag". I'm not sure what that means exactly, but she was holding it for the whole walk. Daddy used to work near the trail so he thought there might be a garbage can near where he worked. We walked to the building, but couldn't find a trash can. They had steps going up and down the hill in the parking lot, so mom and dad had me practice climbing the stairs. I did just fine. I am still scared to climb the stair in our house. They are too steep. I did these stairs OK. Mom and dad took me up and down several times so that I will feel more comfortable. I was tired by the time we got back to the car. Mom had brought my water bowl and I had a couple of good long drinks. I'm going to sleep good tonight
