Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Doing the Off-Leash Thing!

It's been nippy and foggy here, but it only makes me friskier. So when Sierra Rose's mama invited me to play in the huge outdoor arena at the local fairgrounds, I woofed a resounding Yeah, Baby!

When Sierra and I get going, the hoomans wonder if we're fighting, heheh!

Naw... we are emphatically NOT!!!

But Sierra does a lot of bitey-face work and she is very good at it!

She's also fast and likes to chase moi!

I do what I can to accomodate her wishes!

But... occasionally, I'll do my own interpretation of "snaggling"!

En garde!

Then we kissie-face and make up!

Great header pic, Sammie. TD and I do that same bitey face play too, but don't you hate it when she goes for your feet and legs? TD does that too. But it is still a lot of fun to play together.

The Thundering Herd said...

Excellent bitey face, tag, chase, you're it, racing game that you are playing. It is our favorite game, too.

The Army of Four said...

That looks like a blast, Sammie! People always wonder if me and Zimmie are fighting when we play, too. We do NOT - but I guess it looks like it to the un-trained eye!
Come on over and play in our snow, OK?

Sierra Rose said...

Sammie!!! Thanks so much for meeting us this morning. Great fun! Did you get mom's message (seems that she's prett mad at me...) I escaped the corral, under the fence to go after my ball at TOP SPEED....just on a puppy zoom...I stopped only when encountering some delicious horsey poopies...mmmmm...that's when mom caught up to me too. Darn! But, I do think I really scared her!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose
