Do not worry, I am not sick. But I do have an embarrassing problem. When I fall into a deep, happy sleep - I leak. I wake up and there is pee around me. This feels yucky. And it means my mats get washed lots and smell like enzyme cleaner and yucky dryer sheets.
Today my person is starting me on a medicine that will help me to not leak. I hope this helps quickly, because I leaked on the carpet on the landing last night, and also on the mat by the back door.
Turning Old is not fun. I would recommend that you not do it. (And I am only "middle aged"!!)
I would like to tell you about my littlest person (who isn't all that little actually).
She is very much fun. She plays with me! She runs with me! She feeds me yummy things! She throws Balls and toys!
She even lets me go on the couch when no one else is looking. Shhhh.
Here I am doing Wave (with my left paw, I can do both you know!). Because I am so talented my littlest person then gave me a blackberry that she found on our Walk. Isn't that awesome? Isn't she clever for finding sweet treats on our Walk?
I have perfected my technique for cool summertime napping!
This is a trick I learned in Alabama, before I came to live in Canada. But it has been very Hot here recently and so this trick has come in handy!
Here is how you do it: First you need to find a cool spot under a tree or bush. I recommend the dwarf Japanese maple trees in our Front Yard (they hang all the way down to the ground - perfect!), or the raspberry bushes in the Back Yard (pictured here).
Then you dig a hole. The hole must be as big as your body when you curl into a ball-shape, and deep enough to reach the cool, damp soil.
Do not let the people notice you digging a hole. Usually they say things like, "Stop!" or "Bad Dog!" So you must be very stealthy.
Once the hole is ready you can climb in and go to sleep.
And voila! That is how you keep cool in the summer!
I'm going back to my hole for another nap now... Zzzzzz......
It is July now and that means something wonderful... The birds are done making babies and so Uplands Park is open to Dogs again!
Ojo and I love this Park! Let me show you around! Come on, this way!
This Park is amazing because it has many things. There are paths winding through tight trees with little streams. There are fields full of tall grasses. And there are dry areas with rocks and mosses and special trees called Garry Oaks.
There is so much to explore! We run and sniff and run and sniff.
Well, Ojo does most of the running. And bouncing. And flying.
It is very pretty in this Park.
I hope we get to go again soon!! Maybe next time you would like to come with us?
