Mom and Dad took me to the bark park again. I couldn't believe it! Mom said that she and Dad would try to make it an every Sunday early morning event as long as the weather holds. She said it would be good for both her and Dad. Mom said exercise was good for her cause it helps keep her die-a-beet-is (not sure what that is exactly) under control.
Unfortunately, that Baxter dog was there wanting to jump my bones. I got tired of it and snapped back. Another female brindle dog also became Baxter's target and a fight broke out. Baxter's parents just thought that was so cute! (NOT). I also met a very nice Rottweiler named Nike. Nike's dad fetched my Mr. Ring as I had dropped it in my excitement to sniff up Nike. Nike had a brother/sister along (white terrior type dog) who had a red sweater with skulls on it. Unfortunately my Dad didn't think to take a picture of Nike. He took this one of me though.
Dad said that next Sunday we would be there earlier. The bark park opens at 6:30am. We were there this Sunday at 8:00am. Coming an hour earlier will, hopefully, keep us from running into Baxter and his family.
After the bark park, we came home and had breakfast. I got some of Mom's cheesy scrambled eggs. I just love them! I also supervised Dad putting in a new front door handle. Mom has been complaining for months that she couldn't get the door locky thing to turn because of her arthritis (Dusty Doodles has offered his services to woo it away). Well, sometime last week Dad had a hard time trying to get the locky thing to turn and so he went out and got a new one at Home Depot. The handle is even curved to make it easier for Mom.
We had some excitement last week. Mom and Dad got caught in a hail storm coming home from a movie. It hailed in my yard too. It looked like little pills but was cold. It was thundering and lightning too and Dad said Mom kept shreeking everytime it lightninged. He finally yelled at her that he was doing his best to get her home as quick as possible so stop shreeking! Mom said she then just whimpered. When they got home, I was throwing myself against the sliding glass door and Simon Lard Butt was standing on my crate and beating on the window with his paws to let him in NOW. I slept inside that night to keep an eye on Mom. Even Worf and Simon were inside.
Well- I guess that is about it for now. I read that Opy's family are without electricity and there are bush fires near there. Let's say a quick doggy prayer that everything works out OK for them. Oh- and congrats to Butchy and Snickers Mom for having her dog clothing site on the Doggie Wire e-newsletter!
