Join me on my journey as I grow to become part of my pack/family. We'll have a lot of fun along the way! Hopefully, I can make you laugh.

Another Park Visit


We have been having A LOT of rain where I live.  Last week, it rained for three straight days.  Mommy and I were real troopers.  We went out to play for two of them.  We both got a bit wet, but it was a lot of fun.

But on the third day, Mommy got up and looked out the window.  She said that the backyard was a swamp and there was no way that we could safely play in the river that was running through the yard.

So I had to go for a walk in the morning to get my exercise.  That was okay, but not as fun as playing ball.

By afternoon, the rain had stopped, but we still had lots and lots of mud.  Mommy was afraid that either she or I would fall and hurt ourselves.  So Mommy came up with another plan.

Mommy decided to take me to a new park to walk.

We had to drive a bit to get to the new park.  But it was so worth it.  The park is HUGE!!!  And all the paths are paved.

I must admit, there were so many new things to smell that I spent most of the time at the very end of my leash.  But I did not pull!

From time to time, I did trot back to see if Mommy was still walking with me.

As you can see, I spent a lot of time walking, sniffing and checking things out!

We made on full lap of the park.  It is a really long path so it took us about a half hour to walk.

We were just getting ready to go around again… and IT happened!!!

What was IT?  Well, you will have to wait till tomorrow.  Mommy says this post is already long enough.

Doggy Kisses,



  1. Isn't it fun to go to new places! Lots of new sights and smells. With winter and icky weather us moms and dads have to come up with alternative walks and a paved path at least isn't muddy. We get to missing the hikes in the hills around us in the winter as they are too muddy and slippery.

  2. I wonder what happened? The park looks wonderful and it looks like you were having fun!

  3. Hey Tanner,

    Looking forward to finding out what happened on your walk, that park looks great!!

    Glad to see you kept checking in on your Mum buddy,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  4. Looks like a wonderful park! I wonder what it is - more rain??

  5. Rain can put a damper on the exercise fun front!
