Determined Soaking

Today Yoshi needed a big run, and I was determined to make sure he got it. Unfortunately for me it was raining. The closer we got to the park, the harder it rained. I knew I would be getting quite wet on this walk.

We passed this tree a couple times. Each year someone (or some people) decorate a few trees at Elk Lake, and it always makes me smile when I find them.

Yoshi ran, and ran, and ran. Whenever runners were coming our way I would call him, and he would gallop back to my side and wait until I released him. Such a good pooch.

An hour after leaving the warmth of the truck, we returned. I was quite wet, but Yoshi was soaking wet, and covered in mud. After starting the truck I towelled him down, the stripped out of my soaked jacket. I was cold, wet, tired, and worst of all, hungry! I stopped at Starbucks on the way home for a snack and a hot coffee, then it was time to head home for lunch.

Since we have been home, Yoshi looks very contented sleeping all curled up on his bed. Such a good dog …. when he is sufficiently exercised!
