We go for a romp and a swim at Corbett's Glen

We went for a walk in the woods today.

 Mommy found a new romping place today: Corbett's Glen Nature Park!

Our friends at Pitty Love Rescue went for a romp there yesterday so Mommy took me today to see if it's a good place for us to walk. Guess what? It is!

There is a nice trail that doesn't have bumpy stuff that will make Mommy trip, because she is not a very graceful walker. And there are a lot of trees and stuff for a dog to sniff and pee on. And Mommy said she is not afraid to be there because there are a lot of houses pretty close. You know Mommy doesn't like to be in the woods alone.

There is only one bad thing about our walk in Corbett's Glen: a stupid German Shepherd and his stupid mommy.

When we are walking and we see someone, I am supposed to come to Mommy and sit nice and get a treat. That is because you are not allowed to jump on people and you are not allowed to sniff another dog unless he says it is OK.

The stupid German Shepherd was not on a leash and he came running at me when he saw me. I wanted to growl at him and tell him to go away, but when I do that to Bailey she fights with me. I did not want to have a fight. So I sat nice for a minute while the stupid dog sniffed me until his stupid mommy came to get him. She said, "Oh, he is a friendly dog."

Hahaha, guess what? Sometimes I am not a friendly dog! Especially if you are a stupid dog that gets in my face and won't leave me alone!

I did not like that dog. But I played friendly and I got a reward for being good. At the end of the trail there is a swimming place and Mommy let me get all wet and dirty and muddy! Yay!

You can romp in the water and stay on your leash!

 Just in case you didn't know, if there are people in the swimming place you should ask if they mind if a dog splashes around. But if they say OK, you can get in and make a big water mess! I ran around in the water and chased the splashes and fell into a hole and had a great time.

Me and Mommy had so much fun we went home and got Daddy and Bailey.

Me and Bailey played nice for a while in the water. Then we got cranky and had to go home.
It was so much fun that after me and Mommy were done we went home and got Daddy and Bailey and took them there to play, too. Me and Bailey romped until I got tired of her and we had to go home.

So we had a good romp in the woods and got to swim and we didn't have to get baths. Then it rained and me and Bailey barked at the thunder for about twentyleven minutes. Then we took a nap.

It was a good day.

The end.

What we did on Sunday (pictures)

This is where I went today. Do you know where it is? I will give you a hint.
It is Mommy's favorite place except for the used bookstore or
the place where you can get ice cream sundaes.

So here is what we did on our holiday Sunday.

First, me and Bailey went outside together and Mommy played ball with us for about twelveteen minutes. We have not had play ball time together since we had our last fight eleventyfour days ago when I got a boo boo on my chest and someone bit Mommy on the finger and squished her ring.

Then me and Bailey played water dogs. That was fun because we both drank a lot of water and then peed every two minutes for the whole morning.

Then Daddy came home from work and guess what? Me and Daddy and Mommy went to Mt. Hope Cemetery for a long walk! Yay! I like romping in the cemetery. We visited our friends Lottie and Susan B. Anthony and I peed on a bazillion trees and met a nice man who gave me a treat and talked about his Border collie.

Blah blah blah. Enough talk! Let's romp!

Me and Daddy. We don't like to get our picture taken.

Just in case you didn't know, if you are a boy dog you can go potty anywhere in the woods. If you are a girl Mommy person and you have to go potty, though, you have to go to the visitors place and use the inside potty. And if you are my Mommy, while you are in there you go exploring through the building while me and Daddy wait outside, and when you come out. Ta da! You have decided to volunteer at the cemetery.

I wonder if they will let me come with her? They serve cookies and lemonade. I would be very helpful with that.

Anyway, when we were done with our romp, we went home and Mommy gave me a Kong with peanut butter. And then she and Daddy snuck Bailey out of the house. Boo! They went for a romp without me!

Bailey said they went to the woods and she saw a lot of critters and it was exciting. But she said it was not a romping place Mommy would go without Daddy because, just in case you didn't know, Mommy is afraid to be in the woods alone. Even with a very brave dog. She likes to hang around in the cemetery with the dead people.

Bailey and Daddy were tired after all that romping.

  Anyway, when Mommy and Daddy and Bailey got home, me and Bailey got to play puppy school, which is basically when we practice being in the same room without fighting. We did really good. That's because we were tired from our romps and Mommy had chicken. We will be pretty good if you give us chicken.

We are practicing how to be good dogs in the same room. Look! No blood!

 Daddy is taking a nap. I think we wore him out. But me and Bailey still have some barking and running around like wild animals to do before bedtime.
And that is what we did on our Sunday afternoon.

Love BANDIT!!!
