A Dog Vet Visit and Adventures in Not So Sunny California

The day didn't start off so well. We got news that a furiend of ours was sick. She had to go to visit the dog vet. She'll be fine, but we all got to thinking: Life is short. Why not live a little? Momma started going through the "we're going on a hike" motions. What was she thinking, that we were going to catch a break between the storms? Wrong. Regardless, we all love a good adventure and we'd do anything to get away from our home. Linguini and Frankie leapt in the car as I waited for the large hand/ramp. By the time we parked, it was pouring. We stayed in wait for a few minutes.

This is what I call anticipation!

We couldn't stay there forever. We proceeded with our plan and soon enough, I ran into an obstacle.
I gave my momma the sweetest most pleading look...

...but she was determined to let me deal.
I did! I did!

We were almost at the car, when we were faced with another situation: a bunny wabbit. The soundtrack is courtesy of our fire department. It's a constant reminder of the horrible Station Fire and the current mess. At first, Linguini, as most spotted dogs, even though she's a dalmatian and german shorthaired pointer mix, thought she should follow the sirens, but then came the bunny.

It was finally time to head home. We were soaked to our bones. The ride back was quiet. We were all trying to shake off the cold and we were tired. We were happy to lie down and enjoy the sweet smell of wet dogs. Aaaah.
Uh-oh! I hear the momma's sneezers. If she caught a cold, I'll be sad because she will have to pay the dog vet a visit, but a cold would also mean that she's cooking chicken soup. Slurp!


PS: A note to all my furiends, friends, and followers. I'm so sorry! All this time I've been uploading super-sized videos. Those days are o-ver. Now they're exactly the size they should be. My apologies, especially to those with the lowest band width.

Don't let your Mom get sickie! Even if it means chicken soup, it will also mean lots of time spent having to occupy yourself (in my case, that means lots of napping) while she tries to get "better". Snuggle up with her and keep her warm so she doesn't get sick!

*kissey face*

PeeEss: Thanks for all your visits; Mom FINALLY got around to adding you to my blog list...

Frankie Furter said...

You did the big dog log thingy with grrrreat courage my furend. Loved the Siren zoomer at the end. I hear that the rain is about to go away. I hope so. I think you would like some sun for a change. I'm just sayin'.

What a fun hike in the woods. I like your little camo life vest.

That sounds like a great adventure!

You know, if Frankie had her own blog, you wouldn't have to share yours!


Twinkietinydog said...

It was an adventure alright. Now kindly refrain from encouraging Frankie to have her own blog. BOL
Update: Sunny SoCal is ba-ack! I'm going for a hike and this time I won't be coming home soaking wet...all that depends where Momma takes us. She's NOT sick at all. She was probably faking the sneezers to get my sympathy.

Ms. ~K said...

Twink, we were rooting for you all the way across that slippery're so brave.
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

The OP Pack said...

We heard there was sun in LA today - YAY!!! Now can you send some to us. If we can't have snow, then we should at least get sunshine.

Great job on that log, Twink, and look at you go after that rabbit - TD hopes you caught it.

Twink.. I'm shaking my chubby pugger head. How can your mom make you negotiate that dangerous branch over the wildly running river? I was holding my breath the entire time, and that wasn't easy! It make me push out 3 extra farts. We got a couple damp walks ourselves, it was nice to get out, but we're glad to nice and warm in our blankies too.

Pug hugs!

Wild Dingo said...

Good job Twink on crossing that HUGE obstacle! Little dogs can do ANYTHING big dogs do, and better, cuz they're little!

Hey Twink! I use YouTube most of the time because it is easier than dumb old blogger. Plus sometimes (like today) the blogger movies won't play back on my browser.


The Thundering Herd said...

Excellent navigation of the log across the raging river. Well - we are sure that was your perspective!

Madi and Mom said...

Twinkie you all had one fine hike and oh we are so proud of you for walking the tighrope log. Good job for a wee pup....
Madi and Mom

K9friend said...

Nothing like a hike to find some fun, eh? Especially when it involves a good old fashioned chase!

Dip-Dip and The Bridge said...

Hope your Mum is feeling better with her cold now.
You were all very patient waiting for the rain to stop, glad you finally got out for your walk.
That stream looks very full for a little pupper like you Twink, careful now.
Wags and kisses, Dinah Bridget and Elliot xx

Dory and the Mama said...

Wow..I was a little scared when you crossed those raging rapids. I am so glad you made it safe and sound to the other side!!


Draco and his Mom said...

Your were very brave to walk on the skinny little log over that can do anything Twink :) You took off pretty good after the rabbit too. I know how happy you were to get home and into a nice warm blankie.

Twix said...

Oh, Twink! I am so proud of you! You did such a wonderful job all by yourself....are you UnderDog?
PS: Are you really allergic to flowers? If so, how do you know?

Moose said...

Twinkie you are so brave and most sporty to cross the river like that!
