What an exciting day so far! Grandpa came to visit, and is staying at least overnight, to help Daddy do some work around the house. I got so excited that I started causing a ruckus, and Mommy said she needed to get me out of the house to let them work so, yipeeeeeee Mommy Time!
Mommy did not say where we were headed, she just grabbed some water and off we went, what an adventure.
We drove in the car to a park called Crooked Creek, where we drove all around to see the different parts of the park and take pictures. Unfortunately, the beach part did not allow doggies, so Mommy kept driving around the different parts of the park until we found a part that did allow doggies to play in the water. HOORAY!
As soon as we got out of the car, all kinds of people started asking Mommy if I was friendly, um, hello, can't you see my tail wagging? All kinds of people were petting me and telling Mommy how handsome I was, she was so proud. Finally, we were off to explore. We did not get very far when we saw another doggie, and boy was he big. Mommy asked his mommy if we could say hi, and once we got the green light, I ran right up to him. Turns out his name was Eddie, and he was a Labrador, his coloring was black, and he was so friendly, he gave Mommy a kiss, and we played so nice. His mommy fed us both some snacks. Then another big doggie joined us, her name was Sadie, she was an American Shepard, and she was really friendly too. Her mommy said she had been abused before she joined her forever family, so it had taken her a while to become friendly, but now she just loved meeting new friends. I am so happy when I meet new friends, and hear that they have families as great as mine is! Finally, I said goodbye to my new friends, and Mommy and I went to check out the water.
At first I just wanted to climb on these rocks,
but then Mommy encouraged me to get in the water a little...
until I started drinking it.
She told me that sometimes that water can be bad for little doggies like me to drink, so I finally stopped. But I romped all around and around, and had such a blast. I got all wet and muddy and smelly, and it was the BEST TIME EVER.
Finally, I was tired, and it was time to go home. I was so thankful to Mommy for bringing me out today.
When we got in the car to go home, I gave Mommy a big hug and kiss, and settled into her lap for the rest of the ride.
