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!

Bitey Dog at Dogbone Meadow Dog Park...

So excited to go to Dogbone Meadow. We love hangin' there, but today, there was a nasty bitey puppy. Yup. Nine months old and what a monster! Check him out!

This is the bitey dog of all bitey puppers. He is nine months old and ruthless. I, Avalon, think of myself as the ultimate racer-chaser, but this one outfoxed me on every turn.

Here we are on a picnic table, for goodness sakes! And all to escape that ruthless bitey-pupper!

So... Avalon finally decided to settle scores - how brave is she?

I am a certified chicken - here I am escaping the bitey pupper by reversing my course!

Then we had a peaceful interlude and met a couple of goldens - Avalon gives a shout-out to Leah!

We had more than an interlude and got to try out the agility course at this supah doggeh park!

Avalon is so speedy that Momma can't get anything but a fuzzy photo!

Standing on the table - "Pawesome Ma, eh?"

Sammie takin' a nice walkie!

Poor Avalon! Finally finding a place from which to escape "bitey-doggeh."

And not only moi, Avalon, but Sammie had to escape the mean bitey-dog!

Avalon, through the dogbone door, in a moment free of bitey-dog!

And Sammie also chose to jump through the dogbone door before the scary bitey dog came 'round again to... well... BITE!!!

That looks like the most fun doggeh park. Love the obstacles!

That must be a super fun place to go fur some MAJOR FUN TIMES. I wish I could have been there with you.

Lorenza said...

Sure you had a great time there.... well at least when that bitey-dog was away, right?
Thanks for sharing the pictures!
Kisses and hugs

We hope bitey-dog didn't take all of the fun out of it for you! What a neat dogbone door!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Finn said...

How fun does all that look! Except for the biter, but he won't always be there!

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Sometimes, those pups need a stable adult to show them how to behave. I hope Samantha put him in his place! (We have a real biter at our park these days, taking pieces out of nice dogs, so I hope your biter was just raucous and not aggressive!)

Wish we had a nice dog park like that here, minus the bitey dog, of course:) You both look like you still managed to have a great time.

Next time I go to my dawg park, I'm gonna put in the suggestion box that some nice agility equipment like yours is added. Sure looks like you had some fun - but I hope the bitey dawg gets some manners before you see him again!

Woofs and agile slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Pee. Ess. - do ya think I could just send a peemail about the agility equip.? I don't remember seein' a suggestion box now that I think about it.

A new doggy park, oh happy day! Loved seeing all the romping around the agility pieces. So glad the bitey puppy didn't get the best of you. You two are simply the best for sharing!
Have a great day.

Looks like super fun! With the exception of bitey-puppy anyway! BOL! What fun pics! Love the "chicken" one!

The Army of Four said...

That park looks AWESOME! All that cool equipment to climb on and jump through! Ha roo - that little nipster! He'll grow out of that crazy phase soon, then he'll be tons of fun to chase around!
Play bows,

Mr. Pip said...

That's quite a park! Wow! That puppy was a crazy little thing, wasn't he?

Your pal, Pip

NCmountainwoman said...

I loved watching you play. Makes me miss our wonderful dog park in Wisconsin. Hope someone will teach bitey dog some lessons. And soon!

KB said...

Aside from the vicious bitey puppy, that's an amazing dog park. I love the dog-bone door. Wow, it makes for GREAT photos, especially with gorgeous dogs like you leaping through it.

I'm so happy to see you both so happy and energetic!

Barb said...

Well, I'm afraid I'd have to tweak that bitey dog's human's ear! You guys are very brave - photogenic, too.

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! How cool got an agility course. Lots of Golden FUN play. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Shane Kent Louis said...

What a doggie park you were at! I see that you are in Northern Ca and so are we. New to your blog and loving the photos!

The Thuglets said...

Fabulous shots especially the action ones! Bitey puppy needs to learn some doggie park manners! Glad it didn't spoil your fun.
