It's A Dog's Life

Sunday, August 05, 2007

I had a very good and fun day at the lake, I'll tell you what. This is the third day in a row that I've gotten to go swimming and running there.

I chased a couple deer and some lizards too. I smelled of a lot of things too. I had so much fun that I am posting six whole pictures for you to see.

In this shot I am jumping and running very fast. As fast as I can go. I might be chasing after something, or I might just be doing it for love.

I feel that I look very good in this shot.

You can see that I am wearing my brand new Outward Hound vest made of florescent orange material with contrasting yellow florescent stripes. There are two of the stripes. The vest wraps nicely around my collar and gets strapped around me at the bottom. It's brightly colored pattern enables my guardian to see me from far away and it makes me feel so special. It is very official looking too. Plus, the official Outward Hound patch is on it. Classy.

When I first got this vest it was too big for me but my friend Ms. Elizabeth made it smaller for me. She's a smart human. My guardian thinks so too.

OK. In this cool picture, I am chasing something. See how I have my nose down on the ground? I'll tell you what, you can find almost anything if you just put your nose to the ground and smell for it.

This is a shot of me climbing up in a tree. Some dogs just loose the trail when their quarry goes vertical. Not me. I climb as high as I can which, sometimes, is pretty far up there. Even my guardian says that it's pretty amazing, and she is not easily impressed, let me tell you what.

Here is a shot of me running just for the fun of it. I like going through the tall grass.

And, last of all, here is a picture of me stretching my whole body out to make a big jump. This is a very good way to praise God. And, it makes angels happy too.

So, that's what I did at my very fun day at the lake. And, that's the brand new Outward Hound vest that I wore which makes me look very handsome and feel special.

I hope you're feeling special too.




  • Scout says: Rowan, I'm very impressed with your outfit and with your day at the lake. I'd like to get back to the Dog Park again,but it seems like Diane just doesn't have time lately. We went to one that even had sort of a lake in it once. I'd like to go there. I'd run really fast and I wouldn't let them catch me for awhile.

  • Dear Scout,

    Your dog park sounds swell. I've been to one with my friend Buddy before. Buddy is more of an urban hound. He goes to work with his guardian in an office. He knows his way around the city.

    Sometimes my guardian gets too busy to take me the places I'd like to go too. That is really frustrating because we have to have them to drive the cars!

    When Lindy is all busy, I know that is a most important time for me in my job of being a dog because that is when she needs love most of all. So, even though it is easy to be kind of mad at them, our guardians really need us most of all when they are feeling stressed about their human world. I know you will give Diane lots of nuzzles and tail wags. When she gets all her important human business worked out she'll take you fun places again, I just know it.

    Hang in there.
