So, on top of going to the awesome park earlier, I had a friend come over late night! My humans went out, and brought home their human friend & her Whippet, June.
She is SOOO bouncy (although she's a lot calmer than, say, half year ago).
The human friend said June was kind of territorial at her own home and having a doggie guest never worked out well. So she was worried about how I would react to having June in the house, but c'mon, we've tried this before and although it was very brief, it went pretty well.
And of course, everything went very well, again... we played, we drank water, and we layed down, together!
June really likes me, I think?
Anyway, I'd say we are good friends now and she can come over any time! I'm a good host If you would like to see us playing, please check out this video!
Unfortunately, June made a mistake in the kitchen, and the pawty was over then because the humans had to clean up. She'll do better next time. She just drank too much water. That's all.
My humans found another dog park, pretty close to home. It's not big, but we met some nice dogs and dog owners!
Big event. We removed the anti-skid floor mats from the kitchen today. Those have been here since last fall to protect Kaiju's knees. He runs around in the house once in a while, and we did not want him to slip and re-injure himself. We decided to put those away because Kaiju's knees seem pretty steady, despite the appearance, and he no longer runs around in the house with the same craziness. For the first time in nearly a year, we can actually see the floor of the kitchen!
We had the first weekend-long camping trip at Squam Lake this year last week (yes, there'll be another one soon). The beautiful Squam Lake is in New Hampshire, and was the stage for the film, "On Golden Pond" with Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Early booking is recommended. Those camp sites are quite popular.
We took Kaiju there last September. The camp site we had this time was very similar (and close) to last year's. What was not similar was that it POURED through the canoe ride there (1 - 1.5 hrs), and all through the first night. Ick. We set up a tarp in the rain so we could have a little non-drenching area, but what we wore (including shoes) and everything we left outside got soaked regardless.
