My Greyhound Adventure's walk wasn't cancelled after all!! It was still raining a bit but mom and dad took me to the walk any way. We all had our rain coats on. By the time we arrived, it had pretty much stopped raining. Our walk was at Spy Pond in Arlington, MA. It was a nice walk on a paved bike path. Only about 15 other dogs were there with their people. It was a small group because of the weather. After the walk we went to a very small dog fair in Sudbury, MA. It was held at Best Friends. They do dog boarding and training. I had won 2 free nights of boarding there, so mom and dad wanted to check it out. We took a tour of the facility. Everyone was very nice, but mom didn't want me to go there. When mom and dad go on vacation, they might have a dog sitter come to take care of me and the cats. Daddy knows a woman who does this now that she is retired. I am retired too, so we should get along great! After the dog fair, daddy drove us to the food store. He went inside and mom stayed in the car with me. After the food store we went to a place that sold strawberries. They had just been picked and were very sweet. Mom and dad bought two quarts of them. Finally we got to go back home. I was tired by this time. Mom and dad had lunch and then went out to work in the garden again. I watched them from the window. After a short rest, mom and dad told me I was going for another walk! We got into the car and went to a local ice cream stand. we met 2 other dogs and their people there. Mollie was supposed to come with her mom but they never came. Daddy called Mollie's mom on his cell phone and she had forgotten about the walk! Daddy had to lead us instead. We had a nice time. I don't know how, but we ended up on the trail that is across the street from my house! We walked 45 minutes and finished back at the ice cream stand. It was a busy day! I think I'll take a nap now!
