Pooches, my manservant declared today to be a day of cocooning and apparently decided to play hermit all day. No walk/run was undertaken this morning and he only emerged from our den briefly to enjoy a bit of lunch on our picnic bench. After lunch it was back to cocooning for the rest of the day.
Starlight, we better eat quickly because it is so hot out here.
In honor of ‘Tongue-out Tuesday” Starlight puts on a show.
It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s Superpooch!
Pooches, my womanservant has the day off for the Fourth of July holiday. She and Starlight disappeared early for a long walk/run on my Trace while my manservant headed to his walk/run park. I napped.
At excursion time my manservant was in the kitchen assembling spinach/blueberry/strawberry/walnut salads with fig balsamic vinegar and walnut oil dressing. I urged my womanservant to be sure and pack a big back of pooch treats since it was unlikely we would be sharing in the salad.
Much to the consternation of the Hybridmobile, our pack loaded into the Hybridmobile II and headed off to my school park (I’m afraid we hurt the Hybridmobile’s feelings). A fine breeze was blowing off the water which made our picnic (complete with tablecloth) quite comfortable. My manservant and womanservant munched like rabbits on their greens while Starlight and I enjoyed our pooch treats. A short stroll was enjoyed by all after our picnic before the heat began building as the breeze died down. We quickly returned to the Hybridmobile II for our journey back to our den.
See you tomorrow on Silent Saturday, pooches!
You all eat like rabbits!
Would you please take the pooch treats OUT of the bag?
Starlight, let’s go play with the geese!
Come back! We’re not allowed to get in the water!!
We’re getting ready to board the Hybridmobile II for the trip back to our den.
Pooches, my manservant must have gotten out of bed on the wrong side this morning. He left for an early and abbreviated walk/run and returned shortly and said he was headed to a teeth vet for a root canal. We could tell he was ill-humored and quietly headed to our morning naps.
It seems he spent the entire morning in the teeth vet’s chair and he returned about excursion time grumbling. Starlight and I walked on pins and needles (just an expression, pooches) and dared not ask him about an excursion as he gently ate potato soup.
To our surprise and delight, my manservant suggested we take an excursion during the afternoon. We weren’t sure we wanted to go on an excursion with such a grouch but tried to show excitement at the offer of an excursion. The Hybridmobile glided on pins and needles to my manservant’s walk/run park. Because it was at the height of the heat of the day, we stayed close to my creek and walked mostly under the trees to take advantage of the shade. It was a fine stroll about the park which is busily being prepared for the Fourth of July activities that will be held there.
Pooches, the weekend is almost here!
Sunshine, we hardly ever come to this part of the walk/run park.
Starlight, mind that you don’t fall off into the water.
I love the smell of freshly-mowed grass!
They have been working hard this week at my park getting it manicured for the big Fourth of July celebration Saturday!
Pooches, I’ve learned that it is best to show who is in charge when my manservant comes up with one of his silly whims. Tongue out Tuesday…no thank you.
