Scooby and I played and raced while ma was walking behind us. We kept waiting for ma but after walking with her for a little while, we would take off running again. We sniffed and sniffed. The smell of rabbits and birds was strong. This is a little piece of wildlife paradise.
I seen something ahead of us that I have seen before so I stopped. I waited for ma to catch up with us. It was a heron. It was standing there watching us as we watched it. Last time I seen one is when we were at the cabin pet sitting.
As we got closer to the heron , it flew off. It flew to the pond beyond the treeline. This was a blue heron and it was so pretty flying across the pond.
The heron was gone so we continued on our walk. We sniffed and sniffed. A rabbit hopped out of the high grass and hopped for its life to get away from us. We didn't chase it but we watched it hop away. I guess other dogs have chased it before. We weren't there to chase rabbits or birds. We were there to get exercise, fresh air and sunshine.
I stay close to ma. I am a good girl. I trotted along, humming a song in my head but kept a eye on ma. I was feeling pretty good and I sure did enjoy the walk. We got around the lake and left our final messages in the grass and jumped in the car. Homeward bound we went.
Once we got home, we took the guinea pigs outside so they could enjoy the day too. Cinnamon nibbled grass and popcorned around the yard. Cookie nibbled grass and laid in the sun. Molly Mew played Ninja Cat and zipped and zanged all over. She ran the yard, ran up the tree, ran down the tree and zipped and zagged in and out of the catzebo. I grabbed my ball and played a few rounds of poodle ball then chased Molly Mew a little.
We all got some sunshine and some exercise. It was a good day.
How did you spend your Saturday??
