My Summer Vacation

It was great to spend all that time at the lake, just like we used to. And having Kain there to hang out with was the best part of all. Some of the time we would just find a sunny spot to lay in
and other times we would play with our favourite toys in the world. Tennis balls. I like to play keep away but only until they roll under the trailer and then I know that Kain is too big to fit under and get them.

And I was right. Something big did happen. The big guy showed up and he played with us a LOT.

We had to take a lot of breaks because of Kain. I could sense that my human was a little worried about him. His colour has changed a lot and his one eye looks weird and he is definitely not as fast as he used to be.
But he still loves to get involved in everything and show that is the boss. Even with our friend, Sheba. She came out to visit a few times and you can tell that Sheba doesn't let Kain get away with anything. Not even his own duck.
One day we went to the North Saskatchewan River since my people know that I like to swim but mostly because they know that Kain LOVES to swim. It was pretty chilly but I still went after the ball. Kain was right there keeping an eye on things and even though I'd like to think that he was looking out for me I know that he really just wanted the ball too.
While Kain and the big guy were swimming I was warming up on the sand and you will never guess what I found to play with. I didn't know that these things lived in the wild. Aren't they only found in captivity? Anyway, I bit it's nose off.
There was a lot of activity packed into a few weeks so when it came time to get some rest I had to make my move and claim my spot when it came up. Especially at night when it started to get a little chilly.
The only thing missing was Kacy. She had to stay in Texas. I'm not sure why but I think next summer she'll get to see how great it is at Buck Lake.

Hey Earl! Your human's friend, the one with no fur on his head, sent me the link to your blog. My name is Mitzy, and I'm a wiener too. You look a lot like the wiener before me.

I love to swim in our pool during the hot Houston summers and chase tennis balls too. Sometimes, I wear my humans out. :)

They're getting ready to put me on an airplane destined for a place called Dubai where we will be living for about 21 years according to my calculations. I hope they don't forget my big ole bone that I stole from my friend Belle. If my humans can ever figure out how to attach a picture, I'll send you one. Later Dude!
