It's already Monday here, but Mom said that it could still be the weekend in some other parts of the world, so I hope everyone had / have (whichever is appropriate) a great weekend! *grins*
A couple of days ago, Mom took me hiking! It was so fun! She got me in my harness early in the morning, popped me in my travel crate and off we went! While we were on the way though, there was something called a 'traffic jam' which made Mom very frustrated. "Whoever heard of a traffic jam so early in the morning on a weekend??!" she muttered. So,we ended up at the hiking place a little later than usual...but who do I see? Bobo, my old classmate from my Pre-Novice class! Apparently Mom had planned on this hiking trip with Bobo's Mom, Rachel...and that day, Rachel brought another friend too! It was Coco, a Welsh Corgi and her parents, Rosie and Jason! I had a fun time sniffing everyone and getting pats from all the humans...*grins*
The hiking thing itself was fun, coz I get to climb up all sorts of things and leaving my pee mails every now and then! Mom was no fun though...she couldn't catch up with me and had to stop ever so often to catch her breath. Someone needs to work out more! *wink* But I be Haved (as Stanislaw would put it...hee!) and waited for Mom every time.
After a long, steep climb up a hill, we came across a small river with cool water. Bobo can't wait and just jumped and splashed water everywhere! She was so fun to play with, and Coco joined in the fun too. Unfortunately, I umm...am not a big fan of the water, so I just dipped my paws at the edge...heh! Bobo tried very hard to get me in the water, but...*sheepish grin*
Next, we continued on and came upon a hanging bridge. WHOA! It was very narrow and quite swingy, so it gave me a bit of a creepy feeling. I went on it a few steps and froze. Mom tried to get me to go some more, but I can't seem to move it. In the end, Mom had to carry me across....>.<" How embarassing. But then, Coco couldn't move too, so I guess I'm not the only one who is scared...heh! Bobo was a whiz and just raced past the bridge. She's an old pro at this, I guess! As you can see, there are no photos this time...=( Mom was so silly she forgot to bring her camera along! She later told me that she wouldn't have the strength to get good shots either if she had brought it along. She was so tired and out of breath after the whole thing...haha! I'll make her bring it the next time we go though, so you can see how pretty it was...I loved the trip! Even though at the end of it all I became so dirty Mom had to give me a bath, but it was well worth it...the trees, the smell of leaves and grass...*sigh* After everything was over, we sat down and enjoyed some treats and water. Coco's Mom brought apples for everyone to eat too! I got to enjoy a slice...hee. And then, Mom brought me to lunch together with Bobo, Coco and their parents! I got a nice chair next to Mom and Mom passed me some bits of her food...yumm! I so wish she had brought her camera! This post really did not do the trip any justice at all...*sigh* Next time I guess... After my bath, Mom took out her camera (see what I mean when I say she's silly? Why bring it out now AFTER the trip?!) and took a photo of me and Kenji. She made us 'smile' too...heh!
That's about it from me, I guess. Till next time when Mom is more sensible and will bring her camera wherever she goes...
