Paws in the Park

Today we went to Save A Dog's Paws in the Park at Longfellow's Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA.  My cousin Cody came too!  I met so many dogs, but my main focus was peeing on everything.


I got a massage and tried an agility course.


I refused to go through the blue tunnel...  It looked a bit small for me!


Look at all the things I got!


After Paws in the Park my mom and dad took me for a swim.  My buddy Tommy was there (he got a spiffy haircut!)  Then we went to Petco and I got some blue and orange tennis balls to take to the park.

Time for a nap!

"Duck Butt"

Yesterday when we went to the dog park there was another dog on my island!  He was a two-year-old Golden Retriever named Trouble...


But I ended up back on the island in the end...


The other dog had the best toy ever - a floating duck butt!  We went to Petco today to buy one, but unfortunately they didn't have any.


My mom took this picture of me in a stream, but sometimes dogs blink during photos too...

TGIF and the rain is gone!

After a week of rain it was finally nice enough for me to go to the dog park!  I ran around like a crazy beast.  Don't I look ferocious?


When I went for a swim I got the feeling these geese were taunting me.



At the end of our walk it started to get dark, but of course we went to the top of the ski hill!

"The Usual Suspects"

It has been raining a lot the past few days... so I've been stuck inside playing with my buddies.  These are my AKC friends:



From left, they are: Rabby, Baby Rabby, a goose without a name, Ropey Hedgehog, Ropey Bear, a chipmunk without a name.

I've also been watching lots of TV.  I love watching K9 units... fascinating work they do.

"Ropey Hedgehog"

Today my mom and dad did errands.  They brought back a new friend - Ropey Hedgehog...



Today Cody came to the park with me.  I swam with a three-year-old Golden Retriever named Tommy.  Then I walked to the top of the old ski hill with my mom.


Next we went to the ice cream stand and I had doggy ice cream with my buddy, Cody.

Pippa!

Introducing the newest member of my extended family... Pippa! 


She's a beautiful English Cream Golden Retriever.  My mom's parents got her today.  I can't wait to go to NY to meet her!

"Family Day"

Today we had a family day.  First we went to the park for a swim... but we had to leave when it started to thunder.  We went for a little drive and I got to see cows and sheep! 

Next stop: Erikson's Ice Cream.  Luckily, they had dog ice cream too!



It was so yummy!  I wish my dad shared his with me...


At the deli my mom bought me some roasted chicken Buddy Biscuits since I had been so well behaved.  Yummy! 

Our final stop was Petco.  My dad lifted me up so I could look into the grooming area.  I saw some dogs in cages back there - I couldn't handle that!  Dad got some bones to help keep my pearly whites pearly white!

"Duck Hunting"

Yesterday my mom and dad took me for another swim.  Since I couldn't find a deer to chase, I decided to chase the next best thing: a couple of ducks. 



I also ran through an excellent swampy part...


Mom said I look like a gorilla walking along...

"Sporty"

Today my mom and dad took me to the park for some more swimming. 

This time I found my own private island...




After lounging on my private island, I had my first encounter with a deer!  Absolutely thrilling!

"Uncle Ed"

First, let me explain the name... 

"Uncle Ed" isn't my real name, it's a nickname.  One day in the dog park my dad called me "Knucklehead."  A woman nearby misheard him and said, "Is your dog named Uncle Ed?"  Ever since, my mom and dad jokingly refer to me by this name. 

I have various other nicknames, including Sensei.  My mom says I'm deserving of this name since I teach kindness. 


This is me in NY this past Thanksgiving. Such a handsome guy... Don't you agree?
