There are some times that I wish I could talk with words the way humans do. It would make things easier. Mom took me for a walk on Wednesday. She wanted to take a long walk as it was a nice day out. I wanted to take a long walk too- until I stepped on an acorn and it got lodged in my left hind foot! That is the foot that I broke on the race track. It is different now. My vet said it is more splayed out. It hurt but I tried not to complain. I didn't know how to make mom understand that it was in my foot! I decided I would try to get mom to take the shortest route back home. Thankfully it worked. Mom encouraged me to keep going but I stood still before White Ave (shortest walk) and refused to move. Mom gave in. Mom told me she didn't understand why I didn't want to go for a long walk and seemed a bit disappointed. I was happy to get home and lay down on my bed. Luckily Mom is pretty intuitive and sensed something wasn't quite right. She checked my feet and found it! Oh it felt so good to get that stupid acorn out of my foot. Mom showed it to me.

On Thursday we went for a longer walk. We did the river trail until the place that still had snow and mud. On our way back home we met our neighbor, Olive! Usually I walk by Olive's house and she always barks at me from the window. She is very friendly and always wants to play. Sometimes I think she is going to break the window! We got to play for a few minutes on our leashes. It would have been more fun to be off the leash but considering we were playing in the middle of the road, that wouldn't have been the best idea. Olive was very happy to be going for a walk too.

No long walk yesterday! It was April first and Mother Nature played a very mean April Fools joke on us! It snowed! It also rained! Yuck! I stayed in most of the day. One good thing about April snow is that it doesn't stay around very long. Today it is beautiful and in the 50's. Most of it has already melted. Mom, dad and me just got back from a very nice long walk. Mom says I will be having an adventure tomorrow! Can't wait!
