Katie here. Have you missed me? Let me tell you, I’ve been through the wringer! Between my Dad being gone, and me being sick, it’s been really stressful here! And did I tell you that our winter was terrible?! I think my Mom showed you the picture of me in the snow with only my eyes and ears showing.
(Don’t worry, I was really standing in my path and my person was over in the driveway, they didn’t really bury me!)
Well I’m happy to tell you that most of that darn snow has melted, my Dad is home, I feel great, and this past weekend my Mama took me to my park! It’s been forever since I’ve had a real adventure. I don’t count that unfortunate trip to the pet food store a couple of weeks ago when I accidentally wet all over the floor. Mama doesn’t like to talk about that. It was her fault anyway, so best not bring it up, OK?
Sunday I got to go to my park for the first time since last fall! It was wonderful! I did make my Mama carry me around this one big puddle, but other than that I had fun sniffing and checking out all the pee-mail that had been left for me.
It was wet and muddy, my feet got cold and I got a lot of stuff stuck to my furs, but it was still wonderful! We walked way back to this little deck at the very edge of the park.
Mama spent a long time watching the ducks and geese out on the little lake until I reminded her that we were supposed to be walking around my park!
On the way back to the car I got sort of tired. After all this was my first long walk of the season. But Mama had treats and we worked a little bit and that got me all excited again. I was happy to get back in the car though and when we got home Mama and I took a nice long afternoon nap.
I love weekends! I hope the snow is gone for good, because I think my Mama will take me back to the park next weekend if the weather is good! I can not wait!
