Katie here! Haven’t you missed reading about my adventures? Me too, cause I haven’t had any! I’ve been bugging and bugging my Mama but she says she’s working too hard to go adventuring with me. Huh. Seems an easy fix; just stop working Mama and hang out with me all the time! Problem solved!
So anyway, I’ve been working on her to take me to the park and she finally said yes, she could take me in between all her other commitments, if I was sure I wanted to go. Sure I wanted to go? Is she crazy? I’m always sure I want to go. Go ahead. Test me, say “Hey Katie, want to GO?” and see what happens.
Yep I’m always up for a jaunt in the park. This time we went to a park a little farther away with fresh smells. We went way in the back of the park where no one was and she let me run around off leash! That is so much fun! I always stay very close to her but it’s nice to be able to stop and sniff whenever I want.
Then suddenly she was clipping on my leash real fast and telling me to hurry up! And you know what came chugging across the field? THIS:
It was a tractor pulling kids on a hayride all around the park. I thought it was very interesting, but I don’t think I would have run after it. Well. Pretty sure.
After that we went to investigate the kids playground. Mama kept asking me to sit on these silly big dots of color. I told her I didn’t like the way it felt on my feet, and besides, I pointed out the sign said ‘NO PETS’ but apparently Mama can’t read. She did leave her glasses in the car, so maybe that was the problem.
At one of the dot places there was a drain and it had funny sounds coming out of it. I didn’t like it. Not one bit.
After that we walked past the climbing wall. I was pretty bored. Doesn’t Mama know that dogs don’t climb walls? What does she think I am, a cat??
Mama kept asking me to pose in front of pretty trees and stuff.
That was boring too. I wanted to walk some more and we did end up walking a long way…but not 8 miles. She’ll tell you we did, but honestly? We didn’t.
We did some heeling practice too cause I have a trial coming up next weekend. Mama said looking down at me and my shadow it almost felt like she had two dogs.
Daddy says I have enough personality for two dogs. And that’s why he won’t let Mama get me a brother or sister. He says I am enough. I don’t know. I might like a brother or a sister. But on the other hand I sort of like all the attention myself too.
It got kind of windy before we left. I like how the wind blows my fur around. Makes me very glamorous don’t you think?
My mama and I had a great time. I don’t know why I have to bug her so much to get her to take me to the park. She has just as much fun as I do. Maybe even more considering she’s always taking pictures. In fact the header up above, the one of the two leaves? She took that while we were at the kids playground. I pointed it out to her. My Mama. Always stopping and taking pictures.
Next weekend we have an Obedience Trial. I can tell she’s sort of nervous. She’s always spontaneously asking me to heel. Geeze. I get it Mama! Give me a break! I’ll be fine next weekend.
Will you be fine Mama?
