Pooches, my manservant put on his thinking cap this afternoon before we went on a late excursion. As we were headed to the Hybridmobile he lathered himself with sunscreen and put on his hat. Woo hoo! Starlight and I knew something out of the ordinary was before us.
We boarded the Hybridmobile and he requested that we go to my park below my spillway. Yes, pooches! It was a hike down the river beach, an excursion we haven’t had in over a year!
Our hike was accompanied by much banter among ourselves as we recalled the difficulty of hiking in loose, deep sand. We hiked far out of view of the spillway and were soon in unexplored territory which Starlight and I both claimed in the name of our pack.
Fatigue finally overtook us about the time we reached a large bluff which my manservant said was too steep to safely traverse. We panted our way back to the Hybridmobile and, when we finally arrived at our den, drank copious amounts of water.
Pooches, it is good to finally have an exciting excursion again.
Pooches, our pack woke up to wonderfully cool temperatures this morning and, after checking the weather prognosticators predictions, we cheered in unison! Woo hoo!! The heat wave has apparently been defeated and we are going to enjoy a week of below normal temperatures! If we could only get a wee bit of rain.
My manservant declined to go on his walk/run this morning and, instead, piddled around our den until he had to journey to the not-so-nearby-village on a mission of mercy with a couple of other manservants. His return to our den was not until excursion time and he immediately began work in the kitchen (and on the outside grill). An unusual menu was in store for us, pooches. When we paraded out to our picnic bench we were treated with grilled ham, grilled corn, and a peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich (on whole wheat, of course). It was all tasty but I suggested to my manservant that it might not be a good combination to put on a menu if he ever wanted to open a restaurant.
It was not until mid-afternoon that the Hybridmobile was engaged to carry us ever so gently to my Saturday park where we enjoyed a cool breeze blowing off of the water. The only notable incident was when Starlight spied a gaggle of geese and ripped the leash from my manservant’s hand. Unfortunately for Starlight, the end of the leash wrapped around a nearby branch and held her tight! My manservant took her aside and had a quiet discussion with her about pooch behavior after chiding her for such actions.
Sorry to be so late posting today, pooches, but my website solicitor has been a bit fractious today.
Pooches, our Monday’s continue to be rather boring. After my manservant’s extra long early morning walk/run during sunrise, he returned to our den and began his Monday morning denkeeping chores. He grumbled all the while saying he should be in our library working on his projects but continued washing sheets, blankets, and mopping floors. Being the multi-tasker that he is, breakfast AND lunch were being cooked while he went about his chores.
We soon enjoyed biscuits with honey for breakfast before Starlight and I returned to our morning naps. Time passed quickly and before we knew it my manservant was headed to his yoga class. Lunch was ready when he returned to our den at excursion time and the decision was made to parade out to the picnic bench and enjoy a lunch of summer vegetables and pooch treats!
We waited expectantly to be loaded into the Hybridmobile for our excursion but it seems that other tasks had to be completed first. As a result, our excursion did not commence until the middle of the afternoon when the Hybridmobile finally ferried us to my pine grove park. It was an uneventful excursion and, on our return to our den, I chided my manservant for not being more creative in planning excursions.
Perhaps tomorrow, pooches.
