Very sleepy

I wasn't feeling very good this weekend. I just wanted to sleep most of the day away, and I was happy when we got to go to bed.

I did chase the squirrel a little, but that's about it.

What's a Starbucks?

Yay! Tonight I got to go to Starbucks. I don't know what that is, but we got to heel back and forth past the entrance. There were many nice people who wanted to pet me. One man wanted my mom to train his dog. No way buster, she's taken!

There was a Borders too. Heeling past that was hard, because the window was all the way to the ground, where I could see in. I like that! One nice looking boy was smiling at me. I was thinking I could bust through the window and jump on him, but I would probably just get in trouble.

Back home again!

Today we found our house again. I'm glad. I was getting a little tired of driving around in the car, although Lucy's house was pretty nice.

The weather is not very good. It is very smokey from some forest fires, and we just stayed inside and I helped do the laundry. I'm a big help with that.

A very large back yard

Today we got to go see Lucy's house. There's a very very large back yard. Lots of trees, and things to smell. I saw a golfer and barked at him.

I'm a little disappointed, however. I had been under the impression that this trip was going to be all about training ME and playing with ME. But so far, not too much of that. I'm even starting to miss heeling in circles.

Colorado is HOT

Today we went to the dog show again. I got to sit around all day. It was pretty hot. We went shopping a little, which was nice, as all the people selling things give out free cookies. I made maximum use of my wave. That's gets me extra cookies usually.

A word about dog shows

Today was the first day of the dog show. This show is only for Labs, so my friends that are Golden Retrievers were not invited. This made my friend Lucy very happy.

The judge went over me, and I could not stand still. Then I was excused. I'm told I am not the right "type". Whatever. I can jump! And I heel much better than those other guys.

Mike did much better, he got second place and won $14. Lucy got first place and some money too, but I think she got less money than Mike. And they say humans make sense....

The trip to the park

Today we found a big park. It was nice, with rabbits, squirrels, and something else I could smell but not see.

I saw a lake too. It looked fun, but we were not allowed to go swimming because we have to stay clean for the dog show. This deal just keeps getting worse.

Lucy and Mike had their picture taken together.

Whole bunch of LABS!

Today we got to another hotel. There was a lot of Labs there! Neat! Some of them are teenagers like me. It's great, except for the elevator. Don't like that.

We ate, then we walked around the park next to the hotel. We saw a monitoring station that is logging weather conditions and radiation levels. I marked it as mine.

My car ride

Today we all got in the car with a bunch of stuff. Some of the stuff is food. That's good. Bowls too.

We drove all day, then went into a neat place called a hotel with some other dogs. I had to ride in an elevator. I've never been in one before. It's like a room that moves up and down. Yucky.

Tomorrow we ride in the car some more. We are headed for the dog show.
