What a super day !!!!!!!!!
Wow, I have been so busy today and had so much fun. First, the mom dad and I went down to the river for a walk.....and it was so pretty. I couldn't make up my mind which way I wanted to go....left or right.....so we went forward instead. As we were walking along - mom looked down into the river and you never guess what she what she saw - it was a beaver - a real beaver just swimming along. Of coarse she got all excited and started to run down down the bank to get a photo....the beaver must of heard her....because it gave a mighty 'twack" of its tail, there was a huge splash and it was gone. Dad says they do that as a warning. He said it is really odd to see a beaver in the river here as this is a really fast flowing river and not the normal area a beaver would like. Maybe he was looking for a new home. Anyway, we continued walking and every now and again we would see the beaver pop up again but always just too far away to get a picture of. We also stopped by a monument that was built to honor the peoples (Lewis and Clark) that first found this area. Over by the marina there was also some Canadian geese and they honked and hissed loudly as we went by. Mom said they were a pair and probably were getting ready to nest.
Now as if going for a nice walk along the river wasn't enough, we then went to over to the Air Force Base where they were having an "Dog Adoption Day" but also lots of good things for doggies to do and lots of giveaways and competitions. Here I am meeting another much BIGGER cowspotdog called Angus (his mom called him that because he acts like a "big silly moo" she said. He certainly was a big fellow and looked a lot like me in coloring. His buddy, a big great dane was called Brutus. The photos below show me with some of the other doggies and then there I am at home with my goodie bag of treasures that I got. There was treats, and toys, and pens and other neat things. You can click on any of the pictures if you want to see them bigger. I am so tired now, I going to just snooze of my cool vent for a awhile.
