Father's Day Adventure

It was a very busy weekend. The only awesome thing that happened on Friday was that I saw a bunny! Most humans wouldn't even think that would be worth writing about, but I know all my doggie pals understand perfectly. Mom was glad that daddy was holding the leash because I lunged hard for it. Darn those leashes! They always ruin a dogs fun!

On Saturday I had a Meet and Greet at the Pet store near our house. It is called Pet Source. I was the only Greyhound there for a while. Johnny B couldn't make it. His mom came without him. I did my best to represent greyhounds everywhere alone. Finally I saw Troy and Oscar come into the store. I was SO happy to see them. My tail was wagging really fast. It was nice to be with friends. I also do better greeting humans when another dog is around. If the other dog goes up to be petted then I know that human is OK. Then I will also go up to get petted. A little while later another greyhound came into the store. His name was Fast. He was black like me and very nice. We had a nice meet and greet.

Sunday was the busy day! We all got in the car early in the morning. I barely had time to finish breakfast! Daddy drove for a while and then I realized where I was. It was Horn Pond!! I looked out the car window and saw dozens of greyhounds! I got very exited! Johnny B was there and so was Sonie and Louise. I was jumping around so happy to see everyone. I like going to the Greyhound Adventures group. We walked to the beach and I wanted to go in. Daddy had long pants on, but mom had shorts. She took off her shoes and walked into the pond with me. I went pretty deep but I didn't try to swim this time. I think mom was glad about that. It was great to feel the cool water on my legs and tummy.Mom splashed me so I could cool off my back. We continued the walks and saw a swan. Mom took a picture. At the next break spot the group decided to go on the wooded path. I like that path. The other option is along the road with cars and things. We saw another swan with babies! After the walk we got back in the car and headed to NH. Mom explained that it was Father's Day so we were going to visit Grampy. First though we were going to visit grammy to since she lives close by. While we wered riving we got stuck in traffic. We had to go very slow for a long time. Daddy saw a police car up ahead. A deer had been killed trying to cross the highway. Mom was sad. They were just putting the deer in the back of a police truck. We finally got to grammy's house and I walked right in. Mom, dad and grammy left for a little while to get lunch. I had to stay in the house by myself. They weren't gone too long. When they got back I got to go over the neighbor's house to play with their dog Casey in the back yard. It was very hot out and I was panting a lot. I was also tired from my long walk at Horn Pond. I didn't feel much like running. I did borrow a bone from Casey to chew on though. It was starting to get late and daddy wanted to stop at the store to buy a dehumidifier for the basement. I stayed with grammy while mom and dad went to buy it. It would have been too hot for me to be in the car.
After grammy's we went to grampy's house. We stayed on the porch because it was cooler. At grampy's I can walked from the porch,through the garage and out into the back yard when I want.I still didn't feel like running but I did walk around and sniff and explore. Mom and dad took grampy out for dinner. Once again I had to stay at grampy's house by myself. I couldn't go into the back yard because they closed the door, but they let me stay on the porch or go in the house as I wanted to. They weren't gone too long and grampy had a nice dinner. When mom, dad and grmapy came back, mom and dad took me for a walk around the neighborhood. This is where mom grew up. She told us where people used to live. Daddy wanted to go by a building called The Polish Club. Daddy isn't Polish, but he used to play ping pong there before he met mom. There was a man standing outside and mom recognized him. It was her cousin! They talked for awhile. It was getting late so we went back grampy's house to say our good byes. I was a tired dog! It felt good to get back home to my bed.
