Barefoot in the Park, Part 2

Sorry it took me so long to get the second part of this up - Mom has been hogging the computer, and she found out I was using it when she was at work, so now she has been putting it up when she is gone. But no worries, I will foil her attempts to monitor my internet activity! If I can learn how to open a door, I can learn how to open her laptop!

Anyway, back to my story.

All the dogs at the park started to follow me - probably because I am so pretty! BOL!

Then Mom took this picture of me, which was just plain rude - dogs need privacy, too!

I just wanted to meet all the people at the park, and these dogs kept getting in my way!
That little white and brown dog is Oliver - he was everywhere! He was like the Energizer Bunny - he liked to run and run and run!

But here he is trying to keep me from getting some rubs!

And this black dog was all kinds of trouble!

Look at him trying to steal my tennis ball!

Here's a bunch of dancing doggies - I'm just not into that kind of stuff, although I have been known to dance with my Mom.

And look who's right in there, trying to dance: that same ball-stealing black dog!

So here is how I told Mom I was DONE with this park thing -

I put on my tired face, and started heading for the gate.

Other dogs at the gate were waiting for that lady to let her dog in - they are like the park greeters, or something.

But I edged in front of them, planning my escape!

And I almost made it, but that lady caught on, and foiled my plan. She used her knee to nudge me back inside the gate.

So Mom got my leash out her bag (that's her bag hanging on the fence behind me)- and I got all excited, because I love my leash!

She put my leash on me, and I started prancing around the park with my leash - I was so happy, I didn't want to leave anymore!

One guy at the park kept calling me a "show-off".

I'm not sure what that means, but I think he was jealous. His dogs probably don't know how to carry their own leashes, so he has to do it!

But I can walk myself wherever I want to!

So Mom and I left the doggy park, and walked all around the rest of Pendleton King Park.

I checked out this pretty gazebo - but it was boring.

Then Mom walked right past our car, and headed out of the park!

That confused me. But I was walking with my leash, so I didn't really care.
Mom read this boring sign.

Then she took about a hundred pictures of this house.

Mom can be really weird sometimes.
I was SO bored. She tells all about this boring stuff in her blog.

We finally headed back to the car! Yea! I love the car!
And she got really, really lost. I didn't know it at the time, but we were headed over to her shop, but I knew we were driving in circles, getting nowhere.
Mom talks to herself in the car sometimes, so I finally figured out where we were going, and here is a picture of me trying to tell her which way to go.
She didn't listen to me, and kept driving in circles. But we finally got to the shop (after she stopped for some fried chicken - and she didn't share ANY of it with me!)

I am always a big help at Mom's shop.
This picture shows me heading back to the classroom, so I can help everybody with their class.

Look how ready I am, in case someone needs help!

I help the students a lot, but the person who needs my help the most is this guy - he's the teacher. His name is Daniel, and I help him all the time.

I'm heading over to help him organize his tools.

I'm making sure he puts everything where it belongs.

I'm standing in his toolbox, so he will know where to put that Dremel thing.
I watched him very closely when he was polishing the student's pieces with it, and I almost got my nose polished!

I like helping with Mom's classes! I get lots of pats and rubs!
And I even got some Cheez-its!
Finally, I was ready to go, but Mom wasn't.
So I had to dance around the door with my Baby, so she would get the message.
She finally got my leash, and we went home.
She promised that she would get me a new soccer ball (FINALLY!) and take me back to the park. That will be fun, because I love playing soccer!

Hi Bailey! What an adventure you and your mom had - getting lost, finding the dog park, seeing a familiar house - wow! The best part of the whole thing, of course, was the fried chicken, but do you mean to tell me you didn't get one bite? Not even a tiny piece of skin? Tsk! Well, the Cheez-its sound yummy, too.

See ya!

That dog park looks so much fun! You sure had a great time playing and meeting those nice people and dogs!
Good job helping your mom, students and the teacher at the shop.

Nice to bump into you again Bailey and see that you're still having fun and keeping mom in line, you know those humans, they're so trainable :)

Nice pictures Bailey. Seeing how much fun you had makes me think I need to interact with other dogs more instead of being cooped up in the house. Maybe when the snow melts.
