Saturday Outdoor Fun by Zaphod

Friends, as we are sure you all have already heard, Easy's Dad had a horrible accident and his family could use some POTP. You can leave comments/check for updates at Easy's Blog Here.
Dear pals,

I write this from prison as I am in the doghouse again for taking myself for a walk. Technically, while I ran down the road, I was on our property when the Lady spied me. I was just 2 acres from the house chasing something she couldn't see.  The benefit to this is it has given me time to reflect on the perfect Saturday we had.

The real fun started after a big nap. Lady likes to nap on Saturday, so I was treated to 3 hours of her sleeping. She is much easier to guard when she is sleeping. Then we went and sat on the front porch for an hour. The best part of this hour was that Lady brushed me for about 30 minutes of it. I love, love, love to be brushed!
A little bit of the hair that was brushed out

After dinner (which I will forgive was 25 minutes late as breakfast was 1.5 hours late - as we slept in), the Man and Lady took us for a walk to our favourite street. Remember the Man with the stick from last week? It is a walking stick and we saw him again. The first time we saw him, I was friendly and nice. Later when we passed them again Lady and I were further behind the Man and Hailey. I felt the need to protect the Lady and became a bit fierce with my barking. The Man and Lady explained to stick Man that it was because of the stick. If that wasn't enough excitement our neighbourhood horses were itching themselves on the fence by the road and I really wanted to play with them. I was much better behaved then Hailey was about them and got to walk ahead.

After our walk, the people started to build a fire. Hailey, was a scaredy cat and had to go in, but I stayed outside with my people and kept them safe. When it was time to go in, I came over and told Lady by nudging her. I knew to wait until she was done her marshmallow.

Enjoying the fire from a safe distance

Overall, I think Saturday was the best day. I got to do a lot of my favourite things and spend a lot of time with my people.

Hope you had a special Saturday too!

  8. Sounds like a perfect Saturday! I don't know why our families complain when we self-walk...they complain about having to get up early to take us out, so why don't they appreciate it when we do it ourselves?? I just don't get humans... ;)

  10. Phod! Cinnamon barks at sticks too!!! Mrs \d goes walking in the morning and takes a stick and she is always waving it around, this makes Cinnie want to grab it and run and Mrs D does not like that Cinnamon jumps up at the stick! She thinks Cinnamon should learn not to, but it is a work in progress...
    And Cinnamon likes to takes herself for walks too! Can yous please send us some of the cool?

  11. We are so sorry you are in prison. Are you allowed visitors?

    Your Pals,

  13. We have to have these "bad days" to remember to love our "good days." Hope your sentence is commuted for good behavior! :-)

  14. Well....we think stick man would be scary, too. We're so glad you had a wonderful day after suffering prison. Spending time with the peeps...especially walking or playing is the best thing (next to food)

  18. Sorry about you getting in trouble but it happens from time to time. I'm glad you made the most of it and reflected on the good and not the bad.

    Aroo to you,

  19. Haha all's well that ends well - just don't leave the peeps behind on walks any more please :)

  20. Dear Handsome Phod (who might be MY cousin),

    Those sound like mostly good days, apart from Stick Man. And getting put in jail for going for a run. (Aren't Dogs supposed to run? People are silly.)

    Have a good weekend!

  21. This sounds like a great day really Phod!
