wow~ was that a fun mini-vacation! i need to make sure that M and S do this more often, it was only an hour and half drive-- sure beats that 17 hour grool'n drive to the ranch in colorado-- and almost nearly as much fun. i spent so much time in the water that i almost started growing barnacles... no wait that's the about algae... okay, that's it, algae almost started grow'n on me, arfs!

me with my water log and a new friend
teach'n fly'n fish how to swim
M and S had a terrific dinner of whole fried tilapia at their favorite big bear restaurant, they ate out on the patio right near where i was in the subaru- and did i get lots of oooo's and ahhhh's from everyone, at least until i fell asleep- totally exhausted.

bunnie relax'n at the cabin
actually we were all exhausted and when we got back to the cabin we all fell asleep on the "queen bed." i usually don't get on the beds, but this was a special night. M and S complained all the next day that they had to hang on to their "shared" one-third of the bed since i hogged the other two-thirds all night and when they tried to get me off-- i said "no way! i'm tired from swimming." woofs!

the next morn'n we took fly'n fish down to the water, bunnie stayed on the porch- he's a little afraid and can't swim. fly'n fish had a great time and so did i. then after some breakfast we headed home with a little side trip to our old "stomp'n and camp'n" grounds on the route home. i got to check out the water in the santa ana river and holy bunnie was icy cold. i realize now just how warm the lake was. we didn't spend much time there.

so all in all... it was a wahoo woof'n barktastic trip, and i am glad to be home. and in the morn'n i can't wait to get online and see what all of you have been do'n the last few days... i've missed ya!!!!

  5. Looks like you & bunnie had a great time. Wish I'd been there with you. I will have to settle for dreaming, playing in the water with you & sharing a bone, that would be lovely. I think that may just put a smile back on my face. Huggs & kisses XXXX

  6. Sounds like you had a great time! Glad you and Bunnie had fun!

  7. That looks like a lovely place to splash about and keep cool.

  8. Dear Jesse,

    You got to sleep on the Bed?!?! You are a lucky Dog! And that water looks nice and cool in the hot sun. What a fun time!
