So, I've been on house arrest for over a month with NO dog park, NO dog park, and NO DOG PARK because Mom and Dad said they noticed a slight limp in my front leg. They thought it might be me growing so tall or playing too hard with my friends so they 'thought' it'd be a good idea for me to take it easy. But for a whole month? That's like YEARS in my time. They've only been playing with me in the back yard and going for long walks...BORiNG! Since I was a young lad they started making me eat this nasty pill called Glucosamine...it just sounds yucky. Mom hides it in my food with some Evo canned food - woman thinks she's sneaky but well, actually she is because I eat it. Since there's been no dog park, Dad's been taking me swimming at my favorite lake because it's better for my joints. I looooove to swim. I can outswim Mom! I don't let her go very far because I'm afraid she'll drown so I drag her back to shore when I think it's necessary. But that'll be a whole nother post...about 'Mom's Swimming Skills'.
Well today, when Mom finally woke up I knew something was up. She was getting ready to go somewhere and she kept looking at me...then the magical words "You wanna go have some fun?" And I said to my mom "Um Mom, am I a Newfie? Of course I wanna go have some fun!" So she packs me in the truck and takes me to my favorite place to hike. It's just me and my mom. We hiked for a while I got to sniff out the WHOLE place it was terrific. She even carried my own water bottle in her back pack so when we stopped I slurped water and wiped it on her shirt. It was so fun today. And afterwards, I took a long nap. Life is good..
