Not every day is jam packed with action and biting PeeWee and whatnot. Some days, it is just nice to spend time with momma.
Take today. It is a lovely fall day here in Master Chew Sits and momma and I set off for a peaceful stroll in the woods behind our estate.
Momma says an actual train used to drive by through the woods every day, but now it is just a path. I'm not a fan of the start of the trail where there are lots of owie stones.
And we have to cross over the turnpike.
I used to be scared to cross over the turnpike, but not anymore. How about that?
And here is my reward. A peaceful, magical trail full of wonderful sights and smells. Let's go!
Of course, it being the woods and all, there were some branches down from our recent snow storm. I thought this one would be the end for us since momma left her machete at home, but we managed to get underneath and continue.
Always keen to practice my skills, I took an opportunity to work on "stick your front feet in a tire."
One does wonder why the humans go to the trouble to tote such items into our little forest, but what are you going to do?
After an arduous half hour, I was back at the estate and ready for a nice sun bake whilst momma walked the Pea.
Look at him all wanting to do MY trick. Such foolishness. Not to mention that momma left the bag of hot dogs home with me so his performance was unrewarded (oh, I am sure there were lots of "good dog" exclamations but what kind of fool works for praise).
Momma deposited PeeWee indoors and I was away to help her with the ROTE.
First stop was our foster house project where I was greeted and admired by the tool time guys. See how my head is all droopy? That's because this particular tool time guy used to have not one, but TWO mastiffs and now he has a great dane and to be honest he knew just how to rub my big old head to put me into kind of a trance.
We made a bunch of other stops, but honestly, I was kind of dozing throughout.
Crafty dude that I am, though, I recognized our final stop as the doggie store which could only mean one thing.... CAR COOKIE! That's what I'm talkin about.
So, see? Nice morning with Momma. Good times, right?
Mango Man! Oh yeah!
P.S. For all you snow dogs out there, here is the end of our snow from last weekend. The Mango wants nothing to do with it, thank you very much.
