These are the life and times of Miss Peppercorn. That's me. At 14 months old, I am young and vibrant and have much of my life in front of me. But, alas, time goes by fast, especially for us dogaloos.
This past summer I went to lots of places. My family has a house that can move! We first went to Reno, Nevada. My pop's brother lives there. My uncle has 3 dogs! They weren't real sure what to make of me and my tennis ball obsession. One of them peed in my frisbee :(
Next we went to Wyoming and saw Yellowstone Park. I liked running next to pop's bike. The bison were big and scary. I did NOT bark at them. Mom thinks I am pretty smart.
Then we went to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore. This was mom's request on the trip. Quite a diversion from the rest of the route. I did not get to go close to Mt. Rushmore, but I did see it from the parking lot.
From SD we pretty much passed almost all the way through Colorado to see Mesa Verde. Not much for me to do here. I got a few walks but spent some time waiting for my people to come back to the moving house. They came back pretty excited about seeing some cliff dwellings. Why didn't I get to go?!
Onward, ho! to Lake Powell in Utah. THIS was my favorite place. In the early morning before most other people were about we would walk down to the lake. My folks would let me off leash a bit (this is a secret) and throw balls in the water for me. I did NOT ever want to leave that place. We stayed for 4 days. It was great.
But leave we had to, on to Bryce Canyon and Zion were we. I think Bryce was pretty neat for my people. They talked about hoodoos. Whatever those are. On my walks I saw weird tall, skinny rocky things. It was kind of hot here. No water to play in. NOT my favorite place.
Zion, Zion. Nice place. There was a big creek I got to splash in. My boy and my dad got sunburned while floating down the river on donut looking things. My boy forgot to put sunscreen on his feet and dad, well, he didn't put on any sunscreen. Mom was fine as she stayed with me in the shade while they did their float. I was very happy to see them when they finally floated down creek to us.
Finally we headed home by going through Las Vegas. Boy there were lots of lights here. We stayed at a place called Circus, Circus. They had a dog area for me to be off leash. Mom was a little uncomfortable with it. She felt like it was a big kitty box with all the dusty wood chips around. I went to get a drink of water. It looked good. But it was HOT water! I changed my mind about drinking that. I am used to nice, cool water in my home town of Boulder Creek, California. And that, my friends, is where we ended up. Back home. I was not sure if we were ever coming back but we did.
