Human Howling! Loads of it! That seems to have been the theme for today!
First of all I took Mum and Dad workywalkies to church, via a bit of a play with Poppy (nutty choccy lab) in the park, and ending with a nice cool floor to snooze on while they all howled and yackety-yacked. Then, of course, there was the return workywalkies. That included a meet up with a Miniature Schnauzer called Oscar. His minihuman recognised me from when we went into her school a couple of weeks ago. While the humans did some inevitable yacking, Oscar and I got on with a pretty good game of chase!
A brief time back aboard floatyboatyhome included an attack of the grooming kit. That meant Mum was a meanie and wouldn't let me go join in the fun that a couple of Labrador pals were having sploshing and swimming behind our home. I cried and cried but to no avail. Apparently looking 'smart' was important and soggy wouldn't fit that bill. Huffffffff!
A short time later, we set off again across the field. Again, no chance of swimming or ditch-exploring; Mum had me hooked by the lead! Huffffff again! We went to the car and then had a bit of a ride out into the twisty narrow roads through lots of trees and fields. We stopped when we got into a field. Dad parked the car and I got all excited; I thought we were in a freerun paradise! But I was wrong! On went my harness and into work mode I went. We crossed the field and went into a big building with lots of tables and chairs and a huge array of human yummies. Of course, I didn't get any of those yummies but I did get some Guide Dog Puppy pals to kanoodle with! There was a tiny golden Labrador boy pup called Zack and slightly bigger black Labrador girlie pup Grace too.
There were loads of black fur-substitute-clad humans and they all went up onto a raised floor frame thing. Then they all started howling while a manhuman tickled the black and white teeth on the box-table-thing at the front. By this time, Zack had gone (baby pups are only allowed out for short times at such events), but Grace and I alternated between kanoodling and snoozing through all the human howling and front-paw-banging.
I got a picnic tea in the car before a bit of a game of ball-launcher-fetch and some of that 'obedience training' stuff that Mum seems to be doing with me.
