What a day.

me and Rufus

I haven’t been this exhausted in a long time.  There must have been 1000 dogs in this place. Every where I looked a dog. Every where I turned a dog. Every where I smelled a dog!  There were more dogs than trees!

First, we were all together just having a grand old time.


Then after a while, everybody started walking.

My dad had already taken me for a walk in the morning, and here was another one! But not just me and my dad; it was me, my dad, my mom and 1000 other dogs!


We walked and walked.

Then we stopped walking.


I was exhausted and my parents brought me to water bowls that were all over the place. Sometimes the other dogs and I were more interested in each other than we were in drinking water, but then my mom and dad would give me a moment to socialize and then would say “Joey, drink” or its variant, “Joey, drink water.”


We rested for a while. I found a spot under the shade and caught my breath.  This other dog wanted to make friends with me but I was very tired.


My mom was pretty happy.


After a while, my parents and I walked back into the car.

My parents were pretty happy though my dad said he was “dogged out”. I don’t know what that means.

My mom feels this was a successful day. It was an opportunity for me to socialize and get together with other dogs. This is a big thing with her now.  She is looking for opportunities for me to use my boundless labrador-retriever energy so that I will not dig my way out of our property again and so that I will not get hit by a car again.  She also raised money for the MSPCA and the animal hospital where I had my surgery, to help other dogs.

Why can’t every day be like this day!  Well, I’m not complaining. I’m happy with each and every day in my life.

  1. Excellent!! What fun! Looks like Joey had a blast!!!

    • I had a blast. I was overwhelmed by dogs! Overcome by dogs! I have another post coming soon about that day. Life has gotten very interesting since I was hit by the car! No, I’m not getting any ideas. I would never get one of those.

      I see my mom’s point about socializing me as much as possible. I’m starting to like the way she thinks.

      How’s Luca doing?
