Hey there, Peeps!
Penny here. Mom says she has more star pictures and camping pictures and barn pictures to show you, but I told her you’d rather see me! Cause I have to tell you about my date with Lance!
Yep, my mom and Lance’s mom arranged a play date on Tuesday. Lance turns 1 year old tomorrow, so he’s about 6 months older than me. Isn’t he handsome?
I was smitten as soon as I met him. We hit it off right away because we both love to run! All four of our folks sat in chairs in the shade and talked and watched us play.
Of course they made us take breaks pretty often, but we still played a lot!
And Lance told me lots of secrets about how to get what you want from your parents. After all he has six more months of experience than me. I appreciated the intel.
But mostly we were just two crazy dogs having a wonderful time.
And in between runs we got treats! What a wonderful day!
Neither of us could believe our luck, to have a nice sunny day and a big yard to play in and four people to pay attention to us and provide drinks and treats!
I’ll tell you a secret. I think Lance sort of likes me.
And I sort of like him too.
Then of course the moms decide they should get a picture of the two of us sitting together.
Why do moms always do this? Does it seem like a good idea? I haven’t even graduated from puppy school yet, why would I want to sit and stay?
Yep, it went about as well as you could expect.
And just to add another little wrinkle to this photo shoot idea, they brought out Payton, Katie’s half sister, and decided they wanted a picture with all three of us!
Well. Payton is an old pro and sat stoically while all sorts of shenanigans went on beside her. It helps, I guess, that she’s deaf.
I’m sure she was tired of sitting there, but finally mom got one shot of the three of us.
We weren’t exactly all sitting. Ahem. But I did the best I could.
Mom ended up just taking pictures of the other two….
…and then just of Payton, because mom says she looks so much like Katie, she couldn’t help but take a bunch of pictures of her. Mom was really glad she got to see Payton again.
And I got jealous and decided maybe I did too want my picture taken with my sister’s half sister.
And then Lance and I went back to playing!
We played and played, and I started a lot of it!
I couldn’t resist jumping on him to see if he’d run with me.
And then the folks said we should go for a walk! A walk? Are you crazy? Lance and I just ran about a gazillion miles!
But their property was so pretty and shady that we all had a wonderful time exploring. Next time I expect I’ll be able to be off my leash and explore even more, just like Tally, Lance and Payton’s really big sister, and Payton.
Isn’t she beautiful?
And then, after our walk when I thought we were going home, Lance’s mom and my dad got my loose ear glued down again.
And then it was time to say goodbye for now.
Boy I had a wonderful time.
Today I sat by one of my windows and watched the clouds go by and dreamed of running in a big field with my friend Lance.
