We thought I'd be havin' dock divin' opportunities almost every month this year. The local place we found, about 2 hours away, had dates all thru the year until October. Wellwoof, now they've gone and pulled all those dates off the Splash Dogs schedule! So Ma thought she'd try and schedule sum private time fur me and sum pup furiends, but they are not accepting private reservations either! This is the same group Ma approached about me joinin' their team earlier this year. So we is afeared sumptin is wrong over there and Ma is grateful they did not just take our $ then close up shop!
So looks like my only opportunity left this year is at the Sonoma County Fair which is goin' on fur the next 3 weeks. Ma has thought and thought about this and has decided she is not gonna drive 8 to 10 hours round trip just so I can dock dive:(
But to make up fur it she is gonna take me to the beach in Santa Cruz which is only about 40 minutes away:D We can practice with me jumpin' in the waves!

Ma works in an office building that has sum other small businesses as tenants, too. She works fur a financial advisor guy. In the other offices there's a lawyer, a therapist and a headhunter dude.
Today as we were leavin' Ma did her usual lock up of her office. She doesn't worry about holdin' my leash while she's lockin' up. She told me to wait fur her as she fiddles with the keys and I usually do.
But today I just pretended I did not hear and went walkin' on down the hall by myself. There was an open door to go check out! It was the headhunter dude's office! A headhunter must have a very infurestin' office! I just walked right on in!
Ma came runnin' in after me to find me makin' furiends with sum guy workin' on the headhunter dude's confuser! She apologized and dragged me back out:( Geesh, I was just helpin' out with the networkin' thing! Isn't that what good office help's supposta do?!

The nest was empty durin' the day last week. After gettin' back from Mendogcino the ma and da went back to work and My Boy had a volunteer job helpin' out the Cub Scouts so he was gone durin' the day, too! So Ma decided I could come and help her out at the office. I help her by makin' sure she takes breaks and goes outside on occasion and doesn't stay at the office too long.
This week the nest is even emptier, cause My Boy has gone away fur a week to his own Boy Scout camp. Guess another week of helpin' Ma at the office is in store!

That's what happened at 2:30 this mornin'! I was sleepin', mindin' my own business on my doggy bed right in front of the slidin' screen door in the folks' bedroom, when a Peepin' Tom Cat or a George Cooney came and peeked in at me! Wellwoof, I am normally a very mild mannered pooch but we can't let Peepin' Toms just have their peepin' way around heres! So I ran right into the screen door and it came off the tracks and away I went into the night!
I only chased to the neighbor's yard and came right back into my own yard. The folks were callin' me and offerin' yummies but I wasn't so sure about comin' all the way back right then. The humans can be grouchy when their sleep gets disturbed. Finally Ma walked over to me and we walked back together. I didn't get no treats but I wasn't in trouble neither. They knew I was just doin' what a dog's gotta do and protect the ole homestead!

When we arrived in Mendogcino on Windsday afternoon, Da hooked up the motyhome then we went to check out the beach!
It was only about a 5 minute walk from our space and in a very pretty cove. We didn't stay very long cuz it was close to dinner time and the folks had to get back to start the barbque fire. But Da brought the frisbee along and I gotta play sum frisbee fetch.
The next mornin' we had breakfast and hit the beach again. This time with the Chuck It Stick and a tennis ball. I had fun diggin' and chasin' my ball all around the place!
After lunch we did a nature walk, the whole fambily! It's nice dogs are allowed cuz on many of our travels I was not allowed on the unpaved hikin' paths. We followed the trail signs and made our way back to the campground in plenty of time fur dinner. And after dinner I got another fun beach session! Then we had a campfire befure goin' to bed.
The next day, Fryday, started out the same except it seems Ma lost the Chuck It Stick and my ball. See she was entrusted to carry it back the night befure and seems she set it down sumwheres and forgot to pick it up again. So instead we brought the wubba and there is sum video of me enjoyin' playin' with my wubba. I even threw if fur myself!
After lunch we went back to the beach with my frisbee this time. I was a maniac about bringin' it right back over and over! No diggin' and goofin' around and pacin' myself. Just as the folks thought I had had enuf a little boy came up and started throwin' the frisbee fur me! He was havin' such fun they didn't have the heart to take me away right then! So I kept goin' fur a few more throws.
On the way back to our site I had really watery, wellwoof, soupy poopy. Then at the site I wasn't feelin' too well and tossed my breakfast kibblies. Ma says I had a salt water hangover!
Later I was feelin' better so we did the nature walk again but decided to walk towards this light house the folks heard about. They thought it would be a short walk to the light house but then we took a really pretty trail along the bluffs to get back. We ended up takin' 3 1/2 hours to get back! It was such a nice afternoon and the scenery so beautiful we didn't realize we had been gone that long! We were surprised when we got back that it was 7:30!
On Safurday the folks decided I had enuf of the beach and My Boy had sumptin' he had to get back fur on Sunnyday. So we left fur home on Safurday and got home that evenin'.

Had a wonderfur time in Mendogcino! That is one dog friendly little town! I highly recommend it!
We left home on Twosday even tho our space reservation was fur Windsday. The folks decided to leave early and see sum of Napa on our way. Bein' in a motyhome we found a place we could park fur the night in Napa and break up the drive a bit.
We headed out Windsday mornin' from Napa to Mendogcino. On the way, there was a big noise then the motyhome started shakin' real bad. Dadders pulled off the road and parked. Seems one o' the motyhome tires lost its tread! Ma pulled out the little box she sumptimes talks into and talked quite a bit to sum Good Sam person. After she was done Ma said sumone should come to help in about 40 minutes. So we all got ready fur about an hour long wait. But a guy showed up in 20 minutes and 20 minutes after that a new tire was on the motyhome and we were on our way again! Ma and Da were very impressed with the Good Sam service. It was the furst time we ever needed it and they really came thru!
We then made it safely to the Pacific Coast Highway. PCH is a beautiful but sumptimes windy roadway and it was lucky our tire problem happened earlier and onna bigger freeway. We had to take PCH fur a few miles north then arrived at our campground.
I had many fun days and the weather was beautiful! There are videos of me diggin' and playin' and a few new pics on my page. Please take a look and join me in Mendogcino!
