A New Lake

It was a grey and overcast day AGAIN this morning but Mom wasn't to be deterred - she packed our Frosty Paws backpack with water, treats, poop bags, bowl and snackies for her too - and off we went. She had a mission in mind - to check out a new lake she spotted on the map called Lake Hogue. Before we went there though we headed to Lake Poinsette first because we love being able to let Mom off the leash there. It is so nice not to have drag her along behind us.

Dweeb had me checking out this tree hollow to make sure there was no goblins in there, and then check under the bridge for trolls. I swear that Wuz is scared of his own shadow.

Come On MOM !!!!!!! This is the way. You got keep an eye on her all the time as she gets lost easily. Dweeb of coarse sticks like Velcro to  Mom - he's convinced there are scary things behind every tree.

Oh oh - Squirrel Mom - I hear a squirrel there - come on Mom we are nearly there, just over this little bridge and around the corner and we are there. This is our favorite spot at Lake Pointsette and a great spot for a rest.

When we got back to the car we had a nice big bowl of water and some treats. Mom brushed the prickles out of my fur (she says it is is odd that only I get them and not Dweeb - but he never sets foot off the pathway where as I go exploring everywhere.) Then we drove and drove and drove and finally we came to Lake Hogue. We didn't get many pics because you guessed it - just as we arrived it started raining! We will be back again on a sunny day though and have a really good look around as it a HUGE lake.
