We are very excited about what lies before us and really what lies just outside our bedroom door... the Herd! So we wake up early and are excited to get the day started!
The Mom is so excited that she take this fabulous 15 second video to commemorate occasion... the silly silly Mom.
The awake Campers gather together on the screened in porch, doin our best to be quiet so the restful can still rest!
You can all ways pick out the Porter amongst our cousin pack... on a counta we're all boys and she's a girl! And don't she look like a Princess lollin up there on the sofa???
We had a really peaceful and relaxed day, no stresses, no schedules... just tasty foods, lazy naps and good conversations. Noone was in a hurry to do much of any fing... well, except for the Atlas who make his impromptu break for the river! That boy had a date wif it...and he just couldn't wait!!!
Atlas is Bleu Healer / German Shepherd mix heck of a sweet boy wif a intense personality, and he is ALL about findin and diggin up the rocks... errrr, boulders... in the river! He barks when he finds one. He digs. And he sticks his head under water for as long as it takes to pull up the bounty!
This is a video of a failed attempt, but it shows his methodology... stay tuned on a counta in later days, I'll share his success!
I napped in the comfort of the air conditionin while the Aunt Madison, Aunt/Cousin Becca, Atlas and my the Mom hiked up the river and back.
You see, the Camp Counselors have been reluctant to allow the Campers down to the river on a counta... the last time we were all here, there were a number of unsupervised dogs... just like these two here who are handsome boys wif collars and all, but are runnin loose along the river. Atlas was a good boy and had a good exchange, and we are relieved that the frisbee he found was not theirs. Just sayin.
We went on many walks durin the day, and I shnoofed lotsa wildlife and other fings. And this is one of the Mom's primary views... on a counta she was equipped wif two cameras and was sincerely tryin to capture the esssence of our paradise [which for her means any time she spends wif me and the Bleu].
Say what? Who is on wrong side of door just now? [the Cane!]
Me and the Bleu, wif very rare exception, went out in a pair. We make a pretty good team and do reasonably well on leash together. I mean, I'm a bit serious and he's a bit silly... but still, we get a long!
Seem like all ways some body on right / wrong side of door, monitored in this moment by the Cane [layin down], Dylan and Dakota [wif kerchief].
Me and the Bleu, outside the fray!
Beyond you will see Cane [facin camera], Dylan, Dakota, Aunt Madison wif the Buddy behind her... and the Bleu pointin toward the me [and also the forbidden kitchen].
Synchronicity. This is first day we are all together, so we are still tryin to sync our wake/sleep/eat cycles... so while me and the Bleu eat early dinners, we are now takin a bit of a time apart on the screened in porch while the other Campers dine!
We know what they are doin out there. And we want to eat dinner... again!!!
Really, we do!!!
Wif utmost respect to my sweet Cousin/Aunt Becca, I will stop the pitcher sharin now... This night, we begin to celebrate her birfday tomorrow! My the Mom is ultra sensitive bout such fings, and so wifout the Becca's express permission, I will not publish!
