Thankful for You!

My human has been busy-busy-busy getting ready for something called "Thanksgiving". I know it involves turkey (and hopefully lots of scraps for moi!) and being grateful. So I would like to let you know that I am thankful for all my doggy-bloggy furiends! I've met so many nice pups since I started blogging in April and have really enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you.

So now you know why I haven't been posting in a while...I'm starting to figure out that before a major holiday or event like the kids' birthdays, my human gets all frenzied and has no time to log me onto the 'pee-yoo-ter. Just 'cuz she's hosting 16 people for a meal on Thursday (with 6 of 'em staying for the long weekend)...what's the big deal? Pick up the phone, order some pizza and you're done! But she won't listen to me...harumph.

Luckily, today she realized how much she's been neglecting me and took me on a fantastic walk in the woods, OFF LEASH!!! I was so excited to be free, free at last! It's a park she discovered when Girl Twin had a soccer game there, where dogs are allowed off leash on the wooded trails. I was very well behaved and didn't run off. If I got too far ahead of my slowpoke human, I'd turn around and wait for her to catch up. She was very pleased about that since she didn't know how I'd do the first time out. A couple times, we encountered some other dogs on the trail and she was glad I remembered my recall lessons.  I do much better with just one other dog; if two or more come up to me at once, I get a bit nervous.

A tree with trail markers.  I wanted to jump into the stream but my human nixed that idea!

Some gorgeous berries

When it gets warm again, my human said I could swim here!

All tuckered out from all that running around.

  3. Sedona, you were so good out there all free. I would have run like crazy and got Mommy all frazzled for sure. It looks like you were on the couch at the end resting. Does that mean you won the right to be on the couch? I hope so. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

    That's a nice place for a walkie. Does look fun roaming around there and seeing some furry friends too. The lake is also beautiful. Do take us with you when you go back for a swim.

  13. What a good girl you are, Sedona, we would have been off to meet those pups in seconds flat. You looked so great next to the fall leaves.

    We understand about the humans getting all stressed out before company and the holidays. Just be sure you get to taste that yummy turkey.

    Happy Thanksgiving, the OP Pack
