A walkies we will go ......

We took Franklin and his mom with us to the leash free park again today and we met some new friends. They are Saidee the chocolate lab, Ripples the black lab and Fogger (not in the picture) also a black lab. All three of them are rescue dogs and our moms all had a good old chat as we walked around the park three times!!!!! Saidee is a ball maniac and has to carry a ball with her the whole time and was always wanting the moms to throw it. It was really amazing, mom could throw the ball into the high grass (it is almost five foot tall) and every time Saidee would find the ball and bring it back. Saidee actually belongs to another mom and dad who are India at the moment so she is actually staying with Ripples and Fogger until they get back next week. We had lots of fun running and barking and chasing each other. Franklin - being of royal blood didn't partake in the fun (actually I think his legs were too short to keep up with us BOL). He had lots of fun sniffing though and had to stop every few feet to check out some blade of grass or another. Phew!!! I was so hot after all that playing I was actually frothing at the mouth!! The moms all sat down at the bench near the lake and we all had a drink (not from the lake - mom had bought a bowl and water with us) and we rested in the shade of the trees. I had so much fun but I was so glad to get back to car and have mom put the air conditioner on high. Franklin and I slept all the way home as we were dog tired!!!



  1. What a great time you had, and so good Mom brought a drink for you. Hope she brought one for herself as well! How fun to play with all the other dogs!

  2. Oh we can see you frothing at the mouth! What a fun day but it does sound hot. Could we please have some of your nice hot days over here?
    It was great your mom took water for you and you have air conditioning so that should help.
    We expect you slept very well indeed but as Asta would say 'a tired dog is a good dog'.
    Our mum thinks that is a very true saying.
    We liked seeing your pictures.
    love and kisses

  3. What a fun time! I agrees with Martha and Bailey, we need some of your sunshine!

    Oh, you should enter your frothy mouth pic in Honey's drool contest!

  4. Hey great walk with your friends Reilly! Looks like so much fun!

  5. Hi Reilly,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and I'm really impressed with your frothing mouth photo!! Can I add you as one of the entries in my Slobber contest? I think you deserve special marks because I've been told that pointy-mouthed dogs don't usually slobber at all so your efforts are doubly impressive! :-)

    Please let me know if you'd like to enter and I will include your photo when I do my summary before the 20 Aug showcasing all the entries, with a link to your blog...and maybe you could add a line next to your photo in this post stating that it's your official entry for my Spectacular Slobber contest! :-)

  6. Reilly, I'm glad you're taking Franklin on your walkies with you, after all he's been through and that :) Mama says it's so hard to teach a Sheltie how to play! We don't fetch the ball very well at all.


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
