Pooches, what a Thursday excursion we had today! Because Starlight and my womanservant later this morning are headed to Elvistown for a pooch obedience trail over the weekend, and because it is going to be a miserably hot day, when my manservant returned from an early morning walk/run at his walk/run park he suggested a rare breakfast excursion. Woo hoo! Starlight and I immediately hopped into the happy Hybridmobile and off we went down the lane.
A stop was made at a deli for breakfast and in no time we were merrily on our way to my Saturday park! Pooches, it was a gorgeous day for an early excursion and, after a brief stroll enjoying the invigorating air, we selected a picnic table and with tablecloth in place we were soon dining on sausage and biscuits. My manservant claimed the sausage patty while Starlight and I preferred the link sausage.
With bellies full of sausage and biscuits we resumed our stroll. All was well until Starlight, incited by a gaggle of geese, yanked the leash from my manservant’s hand and bolted full speed after numerous geese, chasing them in the water and then proceeded to continue the pursuit out to sea. My manservant was fuming and yelling at Starlight so I decided to join her!
We finally had enough of our splashing and playing in the water and returned to shore where we tried to dry off in the sand. Much to our dismay, baths awaited us when we returned to our den as my manservant, still fuming about our spontaneous swimming activity, applied shampoo to our fur and bathed us both. Starlight and I agreed that this was a top-rated excursion (despite the bath) and a good time was had by all (except for my manservant).
Pooches, it is probably good for Starlight to be headed out-of-town for the weekend.
