Earlier in the week, we went to my favorite spot, 1000 acres. Construction was everywhere with trucks and more trucks working hard to
ruin access to part of the park reconstruct a stream for salmon migration. They did their best to keep us dogs safe with fences blocking the temporary road for all those big trucks and they even waved when they went by. Fortunately, most of the meadows were left unscathed so I ran and ran. But you know what that means–I get H..O..T. And it hadn’t rained in days and days, so how was I supposed to cool off? No mud-puddles, no ponds, no water ANYWHERE. Well, except for the two rivers surrounding the park, but that was for later.
I explored a huge mound of dirt and rocks the construction people made
The intrepid climber
I do smell water!
and….I FOUND IT!
Well, Mom couldn’t believe it. How could I manage to find the only mud-puddle in the entire park?
I’m just talented that way….
So, off to the river we headed and…what did we find? All the trails were closed. WHAT??? Never fear–where there’s a will, there’s a way, at least that’s what they say. I certainly wasn’t going home like this, Mom said. So, we found our way to the river (around the construction) and voilà!
A while back little ol’ me won something–a Zututh Toothbrush
–from Bocci’s Beef. Thanks, guys!!
It’s one of these battery operated toothbrushes just for us dogs. So, I thought I’d take a look.It smelled OK and there were some good treats nearby. When I was through and had moved away, Mom turned it on. It made a funny noise and I took off for a hidey place. Mom said we have to work on it, which is what she’s doing. Me? The jury is still out. I do think it’s a wonderful product for us dogs and I’m going to really give it a try! We do have to have clean toofers, don’t we?
