I want to show you some more pictures of the special place where Laura and I go hiking near our home. These are pictures from one of our fall trips there. (Once Laura is done her classes for this term, maybe we can go back and take some winter pictures.)
You all know how much my friend Laura loves the water. Well, look at where we can walk to, right from our home:
I like the river too, because it is a good place to have a drink. (Laura hikes very far, and that makes me thirsty!)
In some places, the river isn't so quiet.
I can do this.
I am so brave!
Hey! Don't laugh! That was a big stream for a little puppy like me to cross all by herself!
You're still laughing, aren't you. I can hear you naysayers, betting that I won't do it, that I won't cross the big river...
... well, I'll show you!
That's me in that picture. Me. Princess Kendal. Fording the rapids.
Come on in, Laura! The water's nice and cool and it tickles my feet!
That was fun!
Once you are done playing in the water, you should shake really hard to get dry. If your human was too afraid to go in the water with you, be sure to stand really close to her when you shake. That way, she will at least be able to enjoy the river's watery goodness second hand.
I think I'll lie here for a bit now and rest.
