My Excellent Hike at the Lake!

Yesterday mom and dad took me on a wonderful walk! We went to the lake where we went camping last year and actually drove into the closed area of the campground so we could hike on the trails in there. No one was around and we had a great time! It was cold (not for me but for mom who wore all of her winter stuff) like 40 and partly sunny with a cold wind. The trails were muddy and leaf-covered and had various places where you could walk right down to the shore of the lake.

There were lots of limbs down from recent ice storms and I had to work my way around them.

We crossed a couple little run-off streams and one time I totally jumped to the other side!


I am always out in front blazing the trail!

Parts of the lake were still completely ice covered but here the water was high and wavy from the wind.


This is the beach at the campground! I don't like to swim but I sure do like the beach! Look at all the Canada Goose tracks in the sand. Lucky for them they had already flown away because I would've herded them all! I was super excited and got major zoomies - dad filmed it - listen to him laughing and out of breath - you would think HE was the one doing the zooming! LOL!



We were all three muddy and tired when we got back in the car but what an awesome day!!

Gotta zoom!

Reilly / Bree said...

that was some excellent zoomies - looks like you were shaking off the winter slowness and trying to break the world zooming record

Dawn said...

Excellent adventure little buddy! So glad your Dad captured the zoomies! I was laughing out loud (even though I watched without the sound, so I can't laugh at your Dad at all! because Katie was SLEEPING and I didn't want to wake her!)...anyway I was laughing out loud which in the end DID wake up Katie who is now barking at me because I was enjoying ANOTHER DOG!!! Not allowed!

How sweet it is to watch you zipping around on the shore, Ricky. Marge needs a day like this to just "be a dog"..I feel like between my busy schedule and our trial schedule, we haven't had as much fun, relaxing time together as I would like. Maybe the weather will be nice tomorrow and we can hit the beach too...

Hi Ricky, I think we can be very good friends as I run exactly like you when I am happy or well, excited! I can't stopped making the round and round zoomies and my humans kept on saying I am just like you when they watched your video. I like to catch the water and run away from it and then I try to catch it again. My mom promised me that she will take me and Rosie to the beach that I went last year again in April. Oh, I can't wait!!!

Sara said...

Looks like a great day! I'll watch this video & your tricky tday one when I get home tomorrow.

Super Zoomies! That looked so fun Ricky!
I prefer to do my zoomies in back and forth fashion rather than round and round.

I LOVED watching Ricky do those zoomies, he looked so happy and free, what a cutie pie. He must like having his mom AND dad taking him on adventures! It looks like a wonderful place and so glad we got to see video!

Sophie said...

Woah, that was dizzying to watch! Ricky is so fast when he's zooming; he makes one of my two look like even more of a slowcoach (Lola thinks she could take 'im, though she doesn't have his zoomies stamina!). What a lovely place to walk, too. :)

Sagira said...

Looks like you had a great day Ricky. The video of you running around is so fun. )

Sara said...

Ricky, you are a speed demon :)

Amy Wood said...

Wow! You can really zoom! There were an awful lot of geese prints on that beach. But with the way you could move I believe you could have handled the herding :)
Glad you had a fun day. Your walk looked awesome. Great pics!

Nicki said...

Sounds like a lot of fun!

Reilly / Bree said...

Marie said...
