You know - My Mom loves the park and she has been a bit wary about going there because of all the ticks and reports of Lyme Disease in our area but we noticed yesterday that they have cut all the long grass down along the paths. Mom says she feels safer taking us there again - although she still checks us all over for nasty critters when we get home.
So after getting up this morning I decided to sit next to Mom while she was making 'something' at her crafty table and practice my Zendoggie Meditation. Now all meditation requires a chant word to help the mind relax........ and so I began chanting my chant PARK PARK PARK PARK PARK PARK.
All of a sudden Mom says - okay - let's go to the park boys and just like that - off we went. Yes every doggie telepathic chanting WORKS - just don't let on to the peeps okay. Oh - on returning home I decided to do a little more Zendoggie Meditation - with a different chant word - COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE COOKIE and darn if it didn't work AGAIN!
We went off the beaten path a bit today mainly because there was LOTS of shrunken humans at the park and they are so noisy with their screaming and yelling and running around. Personally I think they should be on leashes and not us furbabies! We decided to head off to one of Mom's favorite spots in the park, it is kind of hidden and no-one but us ever seems to go there. The best part - this little arbor is covered with honeysuckle and mom was in sniffy heaven!
Now I have my boots I am able to walk a bit further then I was previously doing. Mom has been slowly adding some distance each walk to see how my foot copes and it is doing great. We are still happy to get back to MY car though cause we know there is always a nice bowl of water waiting for us when we do.
