The real Summer has finally arrived, and it's been about 30 degrees (around 90 Fahrenheit) for the last few days. Let me tell ya, I love the heat, but I have come to realize that it's time for another haircut. I don't like to look to naked, but I suppose it'll be worth it if this kind of weather is gonna stick around for a while! My humans are going to give me a haircut at home today.
Last week, on the longest day of the year, (can you believe the days are getting shorter already?!) we all went to Rocky Point Park to eat lunch and to go for a long walk. I had a grrrrEAT time! Here I am, trying to feel the wind in my fur while we were driving to the park.
After we got there, the humans bought some fish 'n chips and they all sat around a picnic table. Can you see where I was hiding while they ate? I was waiting for the right moment to snatch one of the fries... Just waiting patiently... Getting ready...
We came to this beautiful view of the bay... The tide was way out, so there was lots of mucky sand, clay, mud, and fish guts!
I decided to have a little break and sit down on the log.
We set out again, and eventually came to the old ruins of what was once a mill... Here I am, up on top of it!
We explored around this area for a little while... Lots of cool things to check out and pee on!
Here's a few clips put together of me jumping and climbing at the park...
When it was close to the time to go back home, I decided to walk through the sand, clay, mud, and fish guts. I was happily trotting across it when, SPLOOP! Sploop, sploop, sploop, sploop, sploop, sploop. I never realized how easy it was to sink in it, and I had to lift one paw at a time before letting it plop back down into the muck. I was up to my belly in the stuff! It was really hard to walk across! When I finally made it out, all the humans said, "Ewww, yuck! Sparky, why did you do that? You're going strait to the bath tub when we get home!"
It's not that bad, is it? I found that the muck actually felt good on my paws and legs. It felt nice and cool on a hot day!
When I got my bath, the water was all black. I mean, black black. My feet had been completely coated in the muck... It was a shame to wash it all off, I thought it looked and smelled quite good!
