Yesterday my human family and relatives and I all went to Stanley Park! My human Lizzy made Daddy hold me, because she was gonna go see raccoons and squirrels. She told me, "If I let you come along, then you're gonna chase them away! And the raccoons are hungry right now, and that makes them grumpy, so I don't want you to get into a fight with them. So you gotta stay here with Daddy!" I was sad to see Lizzy walk away, but Daddy was still fun to be with. Lizzy came back a little while later, smiling with success at having been able to feed some squirrels and play with raccoons. However, she was bitten by 2 raccoons, but the bites didn't break the skin, so I am glad. Once a raccoon bite did break her skin, but it healed up quickly. Sometimes I feel mad at the raccoons for biting Lizzy, but Lizzy doesn't care and she loves them anyway, so I suppose I shouldn't hate them if Lizzy doesn't.
After Lizzy hung out with her animal buddies, we all went to the playground. I had an awesome time! Lizzy told me to go down the slide and through some tunnels in the playground, and it was fun! Then Lizzy grabbed me and put me into a swing! It was a baby swing! I felt sort of embarrassed to be in a baby swing, but it was actually quite comfortable and I fit in it just right.
Here's some pictures of me in the swing!
After I swung for a little while, I decided to go tree climbing. Lizzy says I look like a mountain goat!
After I goofed around a bit, Lizzy, Mommy, Auntie, Cousin and I went for a walk along the seawall. Lizzy and I walked on the beach, while Mommy and Auntie and Cousin walked above us on the wall. I was walking along on the nice, soft sand, when all of a sudden I heard barking and yipping behind me! I swung around and this big dog was standing over a tiny dachshund. The poor little guy was terrified of the big dog, and he howled for help. His owners came running and picked him up where he would feel safe, but meanwhile his loud crying made me want to run away with fright! And the best place to get away from the dogs is up on top of the sea wall. Now the wall is about 6 1/2 feet high where we were, and that's taller than Lizzy. But it's not too tall. So I ran, and took a real flying leap, grabbed onto the top of the wall with my front paws, and pulled myself up and over. Lizzy, Mommy, Auntie, and Cousin all saw me and were amazed. Some other people walking on the seawall and the beach saw me and were amazed too. They wanted to see it again! So, guess what they did? They threw me back down onto the beach! Well, they didn't exactly throw me, they more like picked me up and gently put me down back on the beach. But I wanted on the wall! So I ran again to the wall, took a flying leap, and climbed over the top. By now there were quite a few people watching. "Do it again, do it again!" some said. So, of course, they put me back onto the beach. Now Lizzy got out her camera, and started taking a video of me. Oh brother. It's just a little jump! What's so exciting about it? Well, by now I was getting tired, and I don't want to be put back down any longer, so I'm gonna stay down! Sorry Lizzy, I know you wanted that on tape, but I'm tired of being put back on the beach over and over again. Maybe next time I'll jump up the 6 1/2 foot seawall again!
Later that day, I was tired. I slept pretty good that night.
