Warm Weekend

OMG it was a beautiful weekend!! It's been so cold here (for Alabama standards) and dreary, and on Saturday the clouds parted and the sun came out and it got up to 74 degrees!!! SQUEALL!

Dad had to work Saturday (boo!) but mom took me to a park she heard about. It's close by and dogs can run around off leash there! Whoo hoo! So we packed up our backpacks and our sunglasses and took off. The park has 12 miles of trails, but we did four. We would have done more, but near the lake, I found a friend named Gabe the lab and after a 30-minute swimming/zoomie session I was getting tired! Here's some pics of our day:

Startin out with my backpack and Doggy and Gabana glasses, you can't see them, but the strap is there. Mom let me off leash when we got further in the park.

We found this. We're guessing Corky didn't wear a helmet and went boom. Safety first! Oh, and I'm like mom, I like to wear my sunglasses on my head!

Hey, I'm Gabe.
Hey, I'm Anna.
Wanna get dirty?

He looks scared cause he knows I'm gonna get that stick. Silly boy!

Splashy splashy! I love the waters!

Mom sayz that if I was underwater my ears would look like shark fins! Da-da---da-da---

No, that's not bigfoot, that's me zooming through the woods!

Silly boy tried to keep up with me, but I channeld my inner Bunny. Don't he know there's no stopping super sonic Anna Zoomie speed??

Ewww! No kisses!! I'm not that kind of girl!!

I had to let big boy down easy: I like you, I really do, but you're just not my type. We shared some magical moments--the mud, the water, the sticks, the zoomies-- and we'll always have those, but let's be friends.

It was so much fun! I promptly passed out and started snoring on the loveseat when we got home. Sadly the weather is going back to crappy and cold, but mom said maybe this weekend if it's above 40 we'll get Dad and go back! Yay!! There's still eight more miles of trail we didn't get to. I hope you all had a great weekend too!!


  1. Oh Anna, When will the boys ever learn? They just can't cage our wild hearts...

  7. That is about the highest temperature Mom and I khan tolerate!

    Thanks fur sharing your pawesome zoomy fun!


  8. Anna, you just look so cool with those sunglasses! What a zoom you did in that picture!! Wow!! That temperature sure sounds great to us. It really looks like you had a wonderful time!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

  9. Seventy four degrees?! Anna, get that spare bedroom ready! I'm moving in! We're supposed to get fifteen inches of snow tomorrow.

    Seriously, it looks like this was a good weekend for fun hikes. We got up to a balmy thirty four degrees (grumble) and went out to one of our favorite state parks! Oh, it was heaven.

    You sure look fast! I'll bet you're faster than Morgan. She can't catch me, but she tries, and (whispers)resorts to cheating. I'll run with you any day! I'm glad you told that Lab what's what!

    Oh, and your ensemble looks fabulous! I so admire a girl who can go out hiking and look marvelous while doing so!


  10. You're such a heartbreaker! That looks like a super fun day with Mom - hope Dad can come next weekend :)

  11. That Sunday was a gorgeous day here, too! If Duncan hadn't had his rally trial, we'd have hit the park. But we had some fun out in the back was so nice to just sit in the sun and be warm!

  12. I wish we had some woods nearby -- I'd love to go running through them! And I love the water too, but for some reason I can't get used to those large bodies of water. I can't wait to try the pool when the weather gets warmer. :)

    Woofs & hugs,
