Guess what?? I got to go on a play date at my friend, Gracie’s house. Gracie has been out of commission playing with other dogs for about four weeks! My parents think that they would sell me to the gypsy’s if that happened here. Gracie has as much energy as I do! Poor Gracie and family for all that time.
Yesterday, was Gracie’s first day of being cleared for a play date. Her Momma, Kari, sent my Momma a note asking if I could go play with Gracie. My Momma was so excited. It was my first play date at someone’s house. Momma was glad I’m a dog and she didn’t have to try to figure out which outfit I was going to wear.
We loaded up and I had a feeling something exciting was going to happen. We drove to a place I had never been before. Momma got me out of the car and who should come bounding out? Gracie!!! She has really grown since we saw her last. She was so excited to see me. I was excited to see her too. We were leaping and getting our leashes tangled.
Gracie has a great yard. It has grass!! Its been so dry at our house and with those puppies we were foster, our grass is no existent. I had to check this place out. I poked in every corner and around all the trees. I was very through. Suddenly, I looked over and saw this HUGE man! It freaked me out. I woofed really soft, so he couldn’t hear me. I ran around the yard and would run back to him and woof. Then forget about him and play some more. I couldn’t believe the Momma’s didn’t see this thing! Why didn’t they get excited? Gracie didn’t pay attention to it either, but she is a little younger than me. I was the only one who was concerned.
It was a nice day so we went in the pool for a bit. Then run and play. Go in the pool and so on. Gracie’s Momma gave us treats! I’m really fussy about my treats you know. One would think coming off the reservation, I would be happy with any snack, but nope. I’m particular. When Gracie’s Momma realized I wasn’t going to eat the treats she gave us, she got me a different kind. How cool is that?? I love her.
They have cool toys over there. A great football that I loved chewing on. Some kind of grid looking ball. That was fun to chase now and then. A block that had treats in it. Gracie would push it with her nose and some treats would come out. I had to try that one too. Friends always seem to have better toys.
It was nice of Gracie’s Momma to take pictures of us while we were playing. That is where all these cool pictures are coming from. Momma didn’t bring her camera because she can’t take pictures as good as Gracie’s Momma.
Finally, it was time for us to say goodbye. It was time for me to go home and Gracie needed to take a nap. I was not so lucky. I wanted to take a nap but my little brother, Patch, kept wanting to play with me. UGGGG!
Momma said we get to go back and play another day. That will be fun! I wonder if they man will still be there?
