Super Saturday…

Boy, did we have a wonderful, busy day, Saturday. We took off for a long old road trip! Dad wanted to go check out some campgrounds a ways up our highway, and Mom wanted to go to the beach. All three of us got to go with them!

It’s really dried out, so there weren’t very many flowers on the hillsides anymore, but there were a few little purple ones that Mom tried to take a picture of.


We saw a roadrunner… and a Red-tailed hawk with a snake in it’s claws!


We got to a place where a lot of people ride motorcycles and ATV’s, and went into the mountains there to check out the campgrounds.




Mom and Dad let us run around a little there, and gave us some water. We made sure to leave pee-mail...



There was a tree by the side of the road and Mom decided to let Dott pose in it because it sort of looked like a crooked heart.

After we got back to the road, we drove on …and on... and on… seemed like forever, but we finally got near the ocean.




Dad stopped and got us all some lunch at McDonald’s, and we went on down to the beach to eat.



After lunch, we went out to the water. Dad seemed to like walking in the water, and I went with him, but that is really weird water and comes up after you!

Dott was NOT a happy camper to have the water chasing her! Mama OC waded a little, but the water almost knocked her down, so Mom brought her back up to the truck.

We walked around for awhile and checked out the interesting sniffs in the sand…






And then got back into the truck to head home. We had just gotten off of the beach when Robert called and said that Manuel, another of Mom's sons (and my first owner) had called and was at the beach we’d just left.








We called his cell and then turned around and went back to spend some time with him and my first little mistresses.


I still love my first Master, too, and always wiggle all over when I see him, though I wouldn’t leave Dad…


He has just gotten himself and the kids a little half- Mango type dog (Mastiff). The pup is about the same size as I am and he is a little over 3 months old!!!

We visited a little while, and then left and went to McDonald’s again for dinner which we ate in the truck while driving home. We got home quite late, but it was a GREAT day!!!

How did little Dott get up there? She must have super powers. I think everybody had either MacDonalds or pizza this weekend except me!

That little mini-mastiff looks pretty cute. You could herd him.

Slobbers,
