For one whole solid month, I didn’t go on one hike. Not one! But we made up for it today. Mom took me to my favoritest place of all–1000 Acres AND my buds Caly and Tucker were there. They came just to play with me. So, here we go (I was in the lead this time). I was in HEAVEN. We ran and ran and chased and ran some more. Then we found an old corral. Once, a long time ago (before me) there were cows here. And this was an old cattle corral.I wonder what it was like to be in one of these things? Do you think the cows liked it? I thought it was pretty neat (and the grass tasted good).Then we found a fence. I think this was pretty new, but there was some good grass there. Caly, Tucker and I pretended we were cows and ate some.We took off on a deer trail and ended up in some really tall grass–it was as tall as Mom! I was the trail-blazer–I think that was a good plan, right?We thought we were going to have to back-track, but Mom said “let’s go that way”. She was pretty smart and we got back on the real trail. And there it was–a wooly caterpillar. Mom says it’s suppose to tell us how bad our winter will be. I think it’s just a funny bug. What do you think?It was a really nice day! We could even see Mt. Hood. There’s quite a bit of snow up there already. Maybe Mr. Wooly knows something we don’t!
