Back in Action!

Sorry! It's been a LONG time since I've posted!! Mom was away for the summer, and I had to stay at the country home with my Dave the entire time. It was fun to be with Dave, and have the back yard... but WHEW!! Those puppies were a lot of work!

But my mom is back! And we are back in action... but things have changed since we were gone... One of our FAVORITE places to hike, The Redwood Park, is undergoing some "work" I guess they are taking away a bunch of the TREES!! This makes me so sad, because I get so hot with all of my fur, and those trees keep me nice and cool. I guess they are old, and in danger of falling (Which is no good.) But I still miss them.

We can't hike on the big trail anymore during the week, so we can only go on the little trail on the other side. Which is also a lot of fun! I made good friends with a Beagle puppy...who was in some dire need of some herding. Thank goodness I was there, otherwise his mom would have lost him for sure!

We also made a trip to my other favorite park, Tilden. Nothing is closed here... thank goodness! We had a good hike here... and came across a twig tent! We met the little kid who built it last year (but mom forgot her camera)... Turns out I fit into it! The boy said it was "Eeyore's House"... whoever that is.

It was SUPER HOT I got to go swimming in the lake! I also found a fetch friend... I find the little ones make good fetch friends, because they never stop!!

A typical morning

This morning Mattie and I got up extra early so we could have an extra-long frizz session (mostly because I am going away for 3 weeks tonight and I wanted to give her a really good run). We went to the school field a few blocks away and this is what happened...

Mattie leading the way...
Throw it NOW!

Let's do it again!
We had fun! The grass was nice and wet and it was still cool out (unlike the past few days). I'll miss my friend while I'm gone, but she'll be just fine at her country estate. The adventures will continue in three weeks...

The Champ takes a bow

Mattie put on a frizz catching clinic this morning and had everyone
walking by applauding (as they should!). It was a good morning!

Fort Funston!!

Mattie decided that she needed an outing to the beach, so off we went to Fort Funston in San Francisco. Mattie got in the water, I got in the water, even Christian got in the water. What a great time we had!

Leading the way

Mattie knows the way...the way to the park! I'm right behind you

Who, me?

I don't mind if Mattie gets on the couch, and I don't think Larry does
either, but according to The Boss (Trina), she's not supposed to be up
there. But who could tell that mug to get down (and mean it!)??

Lather, rinse repeat

Or rather, wait, catch, repeat. Here we see the 3 stages of a frizz session:
The wait,
the catch,
and the repeat!

New kid on the block

Christian is visiting from NYC and
Mattie has put him through his paces. He was a bit rusty but he's
catching on!

A walk in the dark

Mattie's 'cousin' Atley was over for dinner with his mom, and the two of them and I went for a frizz session afterwards. Here Mattie and the A-man pose on the way home. It got darker than I thought!

A rubdown for the champ

Every great champion deserves to be pampered, and Mattie is no different. Like Mohammed Ali, Michael Jordan and Balto, she likes a good rubdown after a workout. Here, Mattie is preparing for a post- frizz rubdown by cooling down in her towel. Another day, another fabulous frizz session!
