Yep that is right folks – Dad and I took a road trip. Just us guys and boy did we have fun, a little bit of trouble and a lot of homesickness for Mom.
Every year Dad takes me on an excursion to help with training and to get me adjusted more to different situations. I think he just likes to mess with my routine. Nonetheless, I find this outings pretty cool and I am always up for an adventure.
This trip was no exception…as you can see while we were supposed to be cleaning out a Koi pond I decided to “fall” in. I was so scared I just stood there and let all the fish nibble on my long legs. It was a hot day and unfortunately I smelled like the fish after this “swim.”
This trip involved more meet and greets of different animals and lots of children. Of course I was on my bestest behavior.
I did get the chance to hang out at my SLO town club – Thousand Hills Pet Resort. They were very nice and hooked me up with an awesome bath and trimmed my nails perfectly. If you are ever in that area check them out – it helped not to smell like fish for the remainder of the trip, and yes, I do get my omega 3’s elsewhere and had no interest in the fish.
Needless to say, once I got in the car to come home I crashed and for the last few days I have been very mellow and calm. I did hear the parentals talk about how the trip was a success. This makes me glad but I still don’t like long car rides.
The weather is odd here in Santa Monica…balmy, humid, and a little rainy and today the temperature in my casa is 85 degrees, which I am not happy about, but at least I’m home where I love to be.
Sounds like you and your dad had a fantastic time! Very proud to hear your learning new things and being obedient. Your cousin Maggie surprised me this weekend by not bolting through an open gate and instead stayed in the yard as I have been teaching her. Maybe Maggie and I will plan a road trip to come visit you. In the meantime, keep up with being a good dog.
I think it is SO sweet that you love to be home. And how great that you get to have adventures with dad! They are both lucky to have you in their lives.
