I was excited because Grandad came home from work and i ran up to him to shower him in kisses. He loves me so much that i even got away with a little nip on his nose! Mummy told me off though so i stopped straight away. I gave her my puppy dog eyes and i guess she forgave me because she smiled at me. Anyway, Grandad and Mum started to talk so i ran off to find Ollie, my big brother. We started to play fights and of course i won. :) Then, Mum started to call me. What Mum? I barked as i ran to her. Oh Yay!! She was holding my harness and leash, we were going out! Now, i haven't been out a lot because i'm still a baby pup so i hoped we would go somewhere where there's a lot of stuff for me to sniff. Everything was fascinating to me and i had a lot of exploring the world left to do! I did misbehave when mummy tried to put my harness on though, it's funny cos she gets so annoyed. Eventually we were ready and off we went in the car!
Mmmm, what's that smell? Chips? Fish? YUMMY. Mummy wont let me have any though :( She doesn't like to feed me too much human food because i get something called a 'dodgy tummy'. So, instead, i worked on Grandad, i gave him the cutest face i could manage and i got a piece of fish in return. what a pushover! :) I wanted to look outside to see where we would be walking and my face lit up when i realised we were at the beach again! I love it there. So many other dogs to watch and people to have make a fuss of me. Also there was always something i could sniff at. Bit salty though :(
So, when Mummy finished her dinner we set off. There was a huge puddle on the floor, it had been raining a lot earlier. I was deciding whether to go around it or straight through. It looked deep so i thought, i'll just follow Mum's feet. The sand was cold and wet that day so stuck to my pads! I suppose it was a good thing though because no sand was flying around in the air and getting trapped in my big eyes. The beach was massive so i took a while to get to the end. Along the way i found a lot of big sticks to carry with me. I'd seen Ollie do it before and he seemed to get a kick out of bashing the logs against peoples legs. I thought i'd give it a go. Unfortunately i couldn't get enough force to make a big impact when i bashed it against mums legs. She just laughed at me! I soon gave up and focused on following feet. It was hard because Humans walk pretty fast for me!
Suddenly, we stopped! Mum bent down with an anxious expression. Mum? whats up? OH MY GOODNESS, she was letting me offleash! Freedom. I didn't know where to go first! I spotted Ollie sniffing around some rocks ahead so bolted in his direction. Boy was it smelly around here. Mum let me explore for 5 minutes before she called me back to her because we were heading back in the cars direction. I was a good boy and followed her all the way. We got stopped a couple times because some people wanted to see me.I get annoyed because everyone assumes i'm a little girl straight away! Mum's forever correcting them.
We got back to the car at last and Mum lifted me onto her lap. I soon fell fast asleep. I was very tired after my long long walk. I felt so independant. I can't wait to go out again!
