Mom had a scare but I had a great day!!!

This morning after my brushing mom said "lets go do something different" so we got in the car and off we went for a drive. We went to little town of Plattsmouth. They actually have cobbled streets which just about rattled mine and moms teeth out as we drove over them. We parked the car on the little main street and got out to have a look. Mom was looking in the window of an antique store when a voice behind us said " mam, excuse me mam" and when mom turned around it was a policeman. The policeman then asked "is that a male or female dog mam" mom gulped a little and thoughts were suddenly flashing through her head "was it illegal to take doggies for a walk down the main street here" Mom quietly replied that I am a male. The policeman suddenly smiled and said"oh wonderful, I have a little female sheltie I am wanting to breed and he is just beautiful and would be perfect" Mom then had to explain that I was neutered but she gave the policeman the information about how to contact my breeder as my doggie dad is a stud dog and he would be able to do what is required. I got lots of pats from the policeman and he kept saying over and over what a beautiful dog I was - but he sure had mom worried for a few moments. Here I am on the main street and then in front of the court house.

After that we went down the Missourri River Park and had a long walk and I did something mom had never seen me do before. Here is a hint ....Bailey (from Martha and Baileys Blog) was my inspiration. Mom was so amazed she made a video of it

After our walk along the river we got back in the car and we drove to my favorite lake - dog oh dog was I having a great day or what!!!! First we stopped by the little dock to see the funny yellow paddle boats. This is a floating dock and it made some strange noises that I didn't like to much. Next we went to sit for a while at mom's favorite bench. This gives you a great view of the lake and it is nice and shady. While mom sat I just enjoyed myself sniffing around.

On the way back we came across this very weird looking thing on the grass. I had to approach it VERY carefully because it could have been some kind of monster. But it turned out to be okay so I felt safe to investigate it some more. Mom said this is a canoe and it is used to go out on the water. Hmmm why would anyone want to go on the water - they could get wet and we all know how bad getting wet is. We walked for nearly 3 hours today and I am very tired now, so I am off to find a cool vent to rest on and dream about my great day out.



  1. Hi Reilly!
    It seems like a wonderful adventure that you went on! I'm glad that the policeman just wanted to pet you and didn't want to arrest you or your mom! You did a great job rolling in the grass! Isn't it soo much fun?!

  2. Hi Reilly

    Thank dogness you didn't get arrested!

    That sounds like a nice policeman but we can imagine your mom must have got a fright.

    We watched the video and were well impressed - you looked so gorgeous too.

    Now to get a 10 you do have to roll right the way over!

    Martha can do a half roll now and again when she is feeling happy but Bailey, as you know, has a full roll everywhere she goes!

    Keep up the good work. We thought that did look like a funny thing that people want to go out in the water on - could have been a monster. Lovely photographs & video!

  3. Reilly I would give your doggie rolling a 10! My pug Daisy does this all over the rug in the evenings but I think you are far more talented by doing it outside in the grass! Good job. :)

  4. Wow - what a great day you had!!! Thank goodness the policeman was only admiring your good looks and didn't want to arrest you and your mom!

    Rolling in the grass is fun, Reilly! I can't believe it took you so long to find out how fun it is!

  5. Your Mum's heart must have skipped a beat.

    Well, it is always nice to be admired. Did your Mum ask if she could have one of the pups?

  7. That is a funny story, Reilly! ;)

    Looks like you had a fantastic day!

  8. Woohoo! What a very nice compliment from the policeman!
    Ah, a very nice grass roll, I does not do it, but sometimes i do on the carpet.

  9. What a great day you and your mom had :o)


  10. Bonnie, our previous sheltie-girl used to roll like that on the carpet after she ate her dinner. I think it was to itch her nose. Did your nose itch Reilly? You are very very close to a whole roll-over! I think you did very well! What a wonderful day you had!
