We went on a mini vacation with Mom and Dad this past few days. Mom was a bit worried about my tooth abscess and whether should go but the vet said it would be okay so off we went. We had hoped to share adventure for Park Day but we didn't have any internet connection.
Anyway - we went to the Crater of Diamonds State Park - one of the few places in the USA where you can dig for diamonds and keep what you find. No - we didn't find any but we sure had fun looking and for us - the BEST part was the totally pawsome park trails. We stayed at this awesome little place right on the River called Diamond Johns and he let us run around all over the place with NO leashes - Dog oh dog - we were so happy!
And yes - Diamond John has tee-pees - we stayed in a the cabin though (you can see in the right hand corner behind the tee-pees) and we had the whole place to ourselves - no other guests!!! And check out the big doggie he has - Mom says it was miniature horse named "pretty-boy" but let me tell you - he sure didn't have a pretty nature - he doesn't like doggies and he tried eating Mom's shoe! Mom knew how to handle him though and he behaved himself after that.
We did meet a real doggie too - this is Bandit and he belongs to Diamond John. We made him an honorary cowspotdog as he has a brown spot on his back. He followed us around everywhere. I did have to tell him who was the boss - ME - and once we had that all sorted out we all got on great. He would go for a walk with us every time we went. We also met some fainting goats which are as weird as the Dweeb, geese, ducks, chickens and peacocks! There was even tree-rats (squirrels) and C.A.T's around.
The best part of the trip though was all the park paths we went exploring. We walked for miles and miles and didn't meet another single person or doggie. What could of been better then that ....well getting to explore with no leashes on - which we did!!! I think we have found doggie heaven. We have some more photo's to share tomorrow and yes I am feeling okay. I still have a little bit of swelling but it is hardly noticeable and Mom has been giving me my medicine and that has worked wonders.
