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!

In Which We Discover a New Doggie Park...

Cool place for da bags, eh?

And cool new park we've discovered!

How we do da swimmin' thing. I pick up the kong-on-a-rope and toss it to mom or dad or anyone who looks like they cans throw it good!

Temps are in the 70s and ground is slightly mucky, which is just perfecto fer me!

Okay ready!

Hey, c'mon! I'm ready!

Geez whiz, thought you'd never frow it!

Whoopee! After the Kong I go!

And then... return it!

Hmmmmnnnn... seems like there's a welcoming party...

But I can make my way through 'em all!

And RUN... to my dad... who will throw it again and again... I hope!

No way! Tomorrow? Uh uh... no way.

I didn't know dog parks come so beautiful! Wow -- you must have had a blast. I bet that water felt good under the 70-degree sun.. it's not hot for humans, but I bet it's hot for dogs!

Elizabeth said...

Looks like a wonderful place to play! Love your pic of you splashing around in the water!!

Wow, you are an awesome swimming machine Sam....we love dog parks too. Dumb Dad forgot his movie camera when we went to the splashy park last summer (Seattle), but we did get pictures (the masthead picture on our blog). Did your Dad's arm get tired? Your friends are having fun too. Ain't that just the best?

Life With Dogs said...

You have the biggest and best playgrounds. My dogs would be bumming if I let them see this post. They would tell me what a bore I am. :)

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Sammie,
Boy is that a cool dog park or what. Our cuzin Crumb has a dog park in his neighborhood but it's just a big fenced field with NO swimmin' hole. Yours is really neat. What fun to have so many new friends to play with and they all looked well behaved. No fights we hope? You're a GReat swimmer; you'd like our lake, it's actually heated but it's like 17 miles long and 3-5 miles wide so we only use a tiny bit of it.

Hi Sammie,

It looks like you had a fun day and you are a wonderful swimmer.

Nice that you found a new dog park. Mom said she saw a dog beach while she was in FL.

We know how much you love the water, Sammie. That's a great park for you and it looks like the other pups enjoy it too. Did that other pup tell you a big secret?

Hi Sammie
We don't really have dog parks in the UK but that looked like a pretty park for everyone. You met lots of other doggies and got to go for a swim.
We are not quite so keen on the water as you.
You have trained your humans to throw your kong very well! We loved the Whoopee pic and the video too.
Looked like everyone was just having the best of times and lots of wet dogs to shake all over the humans!!

I can't decide if I am more jealous that is 70 degrees or that you have a dog park with a place to swim! Looks like a lot of fun.

Sierra Rose said...

Yeaooooo! Great spot Sammie! You have the bestest retrieve...teach me teach me!!! The water looked like a good level with that nice little beach. I'll go, if Cabana goes too!! Mom might let me run free!!!! Might have to have a pocket full of hotdogs for my recall practice though.
