Mother's Day - A Doggone Good One!

Well, my heart sank when the doorbell rang and the florist handed a lovely arrangement to my owner. I looked, but there was nothing for me. Doesn't anyone remember that I had a litter or two of puppies before I was adopted? I lovingly cared for those puppies. I don't know where they are now and obviously they don't know where I am. :(

I looked so disappointed that my owner went into her garden and picked a special bouquet just for me. And she put it in a special blue vase just like the one her mother used to have. I brightened up a little. But it still wasn't enough.

Later my owner, seeing that I was still sulking, suggested a visit to the Dog Park for Mother's Day morning. I hadn't been for a long time and I got very happy about going. Yay!

The next morning I got up very early and even jumped on my owner's bed (she was resting, but was awake). She petted me and then said she'd get up and we'd go to the dog park right away. I followed her around expectantly. Soon I was getting my harness and leash on and we were on our way to the Brush Prairie Dog park, my favorite.
Sniffing is part of the fun at the dog park!
We got there and saw lots of dogs! They were chasing balls, chasing each other and, in general, nosing around. I couldn't wait to join them. Once I got inside, I started sniffing everything because that is my favorite thing to do. I trotted around and greeted the owners (sometimes the dogs annoy me) and made it 3 times around having a great time! On the fourth time around I spied some friends who are regulars at the park. I went up to them and was very happy to see them. I even hung out with their dogs for awhile.

The sun was coming out so I got hot and tired. It was time to leave. But I have to say I had a marvelous time!

After that we stopped at Chapman's Greenhouse to purchase a couple of plants for my backyard. I stayed in the car and rested because I was tired. I never care what type of plants she puts out there as long as she keeps my squirrel chasing path free of plantings. And she does!

We got home, planted the plants, had breakfast and then I took a nap. It was a perfect Mother's Day!
