Hey guys. I've been missing for a few days because my mom was in a tizzy about losing her digital camera. We went on a super fun hike on Saturday, and we weren't able to write a post because there were no photos of my beastly handsomeness! But my dad, as a testament to his coolness and showing off his magical abilities, found my mom's camera hidden in a pocket of her jogging belt. Yes! So here I am in all my manly glory.
Helping my folks prepare for the hike by eating the book with the trail map and directions. I am so thoughtful!
Big Pupi posing leashless and being all naughty because this is a must-leash park! Rebel!
Strutting my manliness and zooming along the trails. I had bugs to catch and signs to bark at! Dad was such a slow poke.
I was one tired and hot boy. So tired and hot, in fact, that my dad had to carry me for part of the way on the trail. I would find a shady spot and plop my belly into it, and reject each of my humans' silly attempts to get me moving again. I won!
This is a photo of my new park. I lifted my leg so many times I practically dried myself out. Big Pupi was also busy working on purchasing some trees and bushes, so I guess I have to share my park with him. I am going to rename this state park, and call it "Beastville" from now on. Someone please notify the state of Illinois of this change.
That day was so awesome. Pupi and I got to jump off the dock into some really nice stinky water and splash around for a while to cool off, and then there were hours of medium-speed hunting in the woods and out on the trails. I hardly screamed at all! I saved my vocal cords for the ride home, which was almost 2 hours and my car sick meds were wearing off so I made my people aware of this for a solid 90 minutes by whining in the back seat. Ha! Plus I was nice and stinky and still wet from my last dip in the lake. Sweetness. I like these places of hunting and swimming and would like to visit my park again soon. However, they make me so exhausted that I slept until Monday (I woke for feasts and weebles, of course). But it's totally worth the sore muscles. I recommend heading out and marking/purchasing parks of your very own.
