It wasn't the best day weather wise, but off we went anyways. We wanted to do the MacNamara Trail which we have done many times. At the trailhead there is a "no dogs" sign because they don't want us dogs scaring the wildlife. Well, us shelties are not really the type to "run down deer" so normally we ignore that sign. Well this time, there was a new "no dogs at any time" sign, so the mom felt guilty and decided to obey. So guess we won't be doing the MacNamara Trail again any time soon. Honestly people, if dog owners respect the property, clean up and keep us dogs close, how are we scaring the wildlife, except maybe the odd tree rat, we never see any wildlife. Our little town doesn't have a dog park, so what is a dog to do?
Down the road is another park we like, it doesn't have great trails, but it does have pretty views. It is a point where 2 rivers meet, so here we are at Bell Park.
When trying to get close to one of the pretty views, mom spotted a tent with clothes hung about drying. Guess they didn't see the "no camping" sign. We didn't see anyone butts it was a bit creepy so we skedaddled out of there, since there was only us to protect the mom if things got out of hand. Don't think we would be much help herding them around.
I know mom I got a bit messy with all the exploring, relax I will let you brush me later.
Here we are showing mom how sure footed we are. Around the corner is where the 2 rivers meet and it is fast water, she worries way too much, our ancestors are from the Shetland Islands, so we are experts don't you know.
This is fun, I am one ruff & tumble boy. I wanted to swim but "you know who" wouldn't let me.
of course we see the sign, but we aren't doing more than 5 mph, , what a worry wart.
Scout says, I'm fine, we're checking pee mail, scary tent person is no where in sight.
Scout kills me, trying to get a drink without getting his feet wet. I could show him how it's done but you know who would let me in the water, what a worry wart ....
So that was our little excursion this morning, no running down deer and no tree rats harmed.
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!
