Bamboo Agility

We went on another small field trip--mom did take me and the BP the the Bamboo Forest! Did you know that there do be bamboo growing all over Alabama? We has no panda bears, but apparently years and years and years and years ago some people thought "Hey, let's see what we can make with bamboo!" 

But there wasn't much you could do with it, and did you know that bamboo will grow like a weed? Well, it does. And it spreads. One place here in our town was made into a park, because the bamboo was allowed to grow and get so big it made it's own forest!

But since it's a park in the city, I do have to wear my walking string. 

In the middle of this park is a little pond thingy full of lovely muddy muck, which mom calls "nasty" but I do call heaven. I is not allowed in the muddy heaven.

There do be some big trees in with the big bamboos.

Mama said she wanted a picture of the two of us. But then she said, look like you loves each other, so I....

Gave a BIG ANNA KISS! BP did tell me BLECH! But you know he loves it. 

There was a stream down on the backside...shhhh....Don't tell peoples mom let me be on my "invisible" walking string for a few minutes....

The BP did try to do some more agility work. He's pretty good....

But I is super good! He has a lot to learn still. :) 


  1. Oh wow!! Look at all that bamboo, so cool!

  2. we were just visiting the Asia Gardens at the weekend and saw so many different types of bamboo - love the sound the wind makes as it rustles through it

  3. Anna you are such a good tour guide, I didn't know that there was so much bamboo in Alabama, it looks like a wonderful park to walk in, that mucky-ness sure looks good to me too, I bet if you didn't have that pesky walking string on you would be right in there nose deep, it's good you had some off-string sneaking walks too, Mum lets me off too when nobody is there, the bald puppy sure did seem to enjoy it and how sweet of you to give him kisses! Great adventure! Love and Licks from your furiend Frank XxxxxxxxX
