Fun Trip!

Mommee and daddee took us on a trip to daddee's old town--a place where there are lots of trains, and where he used to go to school. One of his friends was having their 10-year anniversary, so we went to visit them and celebrate with them.

Waldo slept almost the whole way:

When we got to where we were staying, we met these guys:
The guy on the left is Gus! Mommee called him "little Gus". The guy on the right is Rocky. These guys were very fun to play with. They were super nice, and shared their toys and their yard with us. We liked meeting our new friends!

When we got to daddee's town, we went to his friend's house. When we were there, we met MORE doggies!! We met Mateo (a chihuahua), Mercedes (a long-haired dachshund), and Austin (a welsh corgi). Sadly mommee did not take her camera, so we have no pictures of them. Everyone kept talking about how BIG Waldo is, and how friendly Gus is. We know that!

When we got back to the house where we were staying, all of us wanted to show mommee what good "sitters" we are for treats:

On Saturday, we were supposed to go the anniversary party at daddee's friend's farm, but it was RAINING! In fact, it was raining so hard we had to stay at home. :( We were very sad to have mommee and daddee leave. But, we got a surprise later when they came back--it had stopped raining, and they were taking us to a LAKE!!

It was SUPER cold outside (well, cold for JULY), but the water was warm and we had a good time chasing after the geese. Daddee's friend came to watch the boys in the water--she was very impressed with their swimming skills! We didn't jump off of the dock like we normally do--mommee says it was very slippery, so she is not surprised.

We had such a fun time meeting new friends and going to a new lake. We can't wait for our next trip!

pee ess: Mommee says sorry that she hasn't been helping us visit your blogs lately. There was no internet over the weekend, and now she is getting ready to go on a BIG boat to a very warm place with daddee (she says its called the Bananas, but that doesn't seem right). Mommee will set up some posts to show up while they are gone, but we won't be able to visit for a while. Aunt Ashley's sister-in-law Mackenzie will be taking care of us and the house while mommee and daddee are away. She came over yesterday to play, and we know we'll have fun with them (and GUNNER will be here!). We will miss you all, though, and look forward to catching up with you when mommee gets back!

Wow - you looks like you had SO much fun at the lake! Hope your parents have super trip on the boat and eat tons of bananas. (you're right... it doesn't sound right)

The Army of Four said...

Woo. They're going to the Bananas? Pack lightly; I just ate part of their vacation spot. Ha woo!
You guys are GREAT swimmers; I like the part where Gus shakes, sharing the water with your mom. And Waldo - that first pic of you is KILLER cute!
Your friends all look really cool. Zim knows some cool Bassets. Did your friends bark with southern accents?

Woodrow, Sweetie, MJ Campanella said...

wow looks like you had a really fun trip - we love dock jumping but good thing you were careful - a slippery dock can be very dangerous!!

OH... I am a big dog lover... very partial to Goldens as I have a 3 1/2 year old male that we just adore and pamper! (all the kids are grown, so we can, right?)

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments. I love crafts and love to share the things I have done and/or plan to do! :)

Please come back and visit often. :)

Hi everyone
looks like you had a good time at the swimming hole!
I hope your mom and dad have a good time at the bananas!
If you get bored, look for magic bubbles!

Moco said...

That looks like you had a very good time and met some great new friends. Both of you are very good swimmers.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Tell your mom and dad to have a good time and to try not to miss you both too much -- though we know they will!

Diamond said...

Wow..I don't like water enough to actually get in it yet. I'm really impressed with your swimming abilities.
It looks like Waldo was very comfy during the ride up there.

CAM said...

Tobi said...

Rocky and Gus are some great looking Bassets. Great pics of all of the dogs together - especially the one where they are all sitting for treats. You must be some kind of dog whisperer!


Ludo van Doggy said...

What a pawsome trip!
Welcome back, I like your other doggy friends.

Martha Basset said...

Oh, we loved seeing the bassets! Sorry we missed this post - we have to confess we have advertised for a new secretary as we have concerns about this one!

Sue said...

We loved your "dock dog" video! That lake looks like a blast!

ocmist said...

Oh... Looks like you had a blast on your Road Trip! We LOVE road trips and lakes are a lot of fun (we've only been to one, once, but it was great!)

So sorry your parents are leaving you, but I'm sure they got someone who will take very good care of you because they love you both so much. My Mom says she & Dad went to the bananas about 14 years ago on their 20th anniversary, and loved it (except the cruise cause she gets sick) but the 3 days there was wonderful... lots of fond memories, so she hopes your parents have just as much fun (except for the sick) OC

Oskar said...

Ooh, looks like fun. I love trips to meet new friends.

Johann The Dog said...

Wow, what a great weekend!!! You were all so good to sit for those treats, turned out to be a great picture! And that swimmin' I be envious!!!

Dino and Family said...

How fun! You got to meet so many friends and swimming in that lake! Wow!!! Fantastic!!! Have a good rest now! Love, Dino

Hey guys, it's Star! Wow, that looks like a really fun trip! Right up to the part where you touched the water, that is. It's neat that you went with FRIENDS!!!

Your friend, Star XOXOXO

Mango said...

Is your dad from some sort of dog town? That place looks cool. Lots of nice doggies to play with.

Waldo, I am wondering if growing up with Gus has made you think you are a water dog. I mean, dock diving, wow!
