-----me and whitty got to go to oceola island today. i've posted a picture of me and whitty on his skates. it was a little cool but we had a lot of fun and i met up with a friend named audi-mae.
she always gets excited to see me and i get a kick out of it too. we met several other dogs out walkin their pet human. some were walkin more than one human at a time. i've got to give them credit i have enough trouble walkin one at a time but he is gettin better at it. i wanted to go on some trails but whitty don't like skatin on gravel, i guess i'll have to get him to bring his bike down. he does better hikin and bikin on gravel than when he's on his skates.
-----it was nice and sunny when we got there but just before we left it started to cloud up. the temps. were in the 50's today so it felt good out runnin. whitty started out wearin a jacket but before we left he had to unbutton it so he didn't overheat. i waded in the river and probably drank a gallon of water. whitty just used rocks as steppin stones tryin to not get his feet wet. the water was pretty cold it comes from the bottom of the lake even in the middle of summer its only about 45 or 50 degrees.

we went to visit with some friends bobby & tracy. we had fun playin out in the yard today. they showed me how to use their doggie door. tracy was a little nervous when i first got there. my size might have scared her but bobby was ok we've played together before. by the time we left she was startin to warm up to me. it helped when she got up on the couch and she could see me eye to eye.
we got to play together for about an hour and half. we ran through the yard and barked at other dogs. it was a nice day to be outside but once they showed me the doggie door we stayed inside.
while we were there whitty and his uncle were planning a hike on the Appalachian Trail. they want to go from us421 to damascus. i hope they can keep up. whitty wants to go on some short hikes to limber up before we go on that one.
