My Second 5k!!!!!!

I did my second 5k race yesterday.  It was the Fremont Oktoberfest 5k. 
You can see my post from last year's Oktoberfest 5k here. 
Me and dad chillin' before the race...

This is a really good dog friendly race.  There were more dogs this year.
Me and mom after finishing the race...
 Our time was 32:19.
That was more than 3 minutes faster than last year!!!
Course, I didn't stop for a poop break either and only had one 3-second pee stop.

Since it was 'Dogtoberfest', I got to take mom and dad into the beer tasting area.

The weather was nice during the run, but it started dripping later.
Me and dad got under this tent to keep dry. 

 I was really hoping that dude would drop that yummy smelling food item,
but no such luck.

It was a great time again and even better that I set a new PR!!!
Can't wait til my next race!

Toys for Rainy Daze!

Too many words for Wordless Wednesday today.
Camping adventures will continue after this brief message from our sponsors...

With the rainy season fast approaching in the PNW (yeah, like it ever left), Mom has been on the look-out for toys to keep me busy indoors (since you all know how much I hate being dripped on!)
We got this cool Kyjen toy.  They're the same people who made the tug toy I really LOVE. 
You can see that review here. 
I noticed that Frankie recently had the opportunity to review this toy. 
You can see his review of it here.
At first I was like, "What the heck is this thingy?"
Hmmmm...  I smell treatz!!!
Maybe it I just move this thingy...
So I discovered that there were treatz hidden in these little cup thingies.
YUM!!!!  (notice all the slobber on it)
Last one....
Mmmm...  very yummy! 
Since I've played with treat dispensing toys before, this was relatively easy for me. 
But, it was still fun and yummy, and mom said it kept me occupied for a few minutes.
So I give it 1.5 Thumbs up (on a scale of -2 to 2).
And it was definitely better than the muffin pan we were using last year!!!

Ruffin' It !! Day 7 - While the Hoomans are Away...

We got up early and headed out on some mystery adventure. 
Then, we stopped at a place so that I could play all day instead of being stuck in the truck.
It was a nice place and I made some new Montana furrriends.

Mom and dad started the day by going fishing.  Here's a great shot of dad fishing along the Madison River.
Mom used to fish here 25 years ago.  She said she used to always catch trout.
Not so lucky this time.  No nibbles.  Mom said it's because the river was so swollen from recent flooding.
Sure, mom.  If you say so....
After the morning fishing, they went to a place called the Lewis and Clark Caverns. That's the place where I wasn't allowed.  Guess they thought I'd scare the bats or something.
Mom and dad at the cave entrance.
They saw some weird looking stuff in there. 
After their day long adventure, they picked me up from my Montana play place
 and we headed back to camp.

Dad was determined to catch something, so he tried his luck along the river right behind our camp site.
Oh boy, dad!!!  What did you catch??
 Well now, that's pretty impressive.  He caught someone else's lost lure!!
Not everyone can do that!!

It was another exciting, tiring day. 
We settled down for some ZZzzzzz's to get ready for tomorrow's action packed day.

Stay tuned for Day 8 -  Come Back Here With Our Bling!!!!

Never Forget!

Please take a moment today to remember those who lost their lives and the brave heroes who responded during the attacks on America 10 years ago.

Remembering the 4-legged furry heroes of 9/11:

Thank you.

Ruffin' It !! Day 6 (continued) - Mom's Old Stomping Grounds

 Ok, back to camping stories.
Mom thinks she's being funny by pointing at the 'Bear Country' sign!
As you can see, I am not laughing!
Anyways, mom was excited to get into town.  She lived in Bozeman for a while.
So we went into town and mom and dad had lunch at this place called the Pickle Barrel. 
Mom said they used to have THE BEST sandwiches.
She said they're still just as good!
That's a HUGE sandwich!  Hope some's for ME!!!

We drove around more so mom could see some of the stuff that was new, and some of the stuff that was the same.  Then we headed back to our campsite so we could all relax.
Today was a busy day and our dogs were tired (really!)
We had to get some shut eye cuz tomorrow was going to be packed full of fun stuffs. 

Stay tuned for Day 7  -  While the Hoomans are Away....

Birthday Visit Adventures

Here's a picture of my Pop-pop on his birfday:
Can you believe I didn't even get to taste that cake!?!?!
Luckily, mom brought me some buffalo treats.

The next day, we got to go check out the

Checking out some weird smells...

It's okay.  Coast is clear. 

This morning, we walked around Carrie Blake Park.
They have lots of lavender.
...and other purty flowers.

Mom found this duck stuffie with my name on it:

But she said I can't have it until we get back to our house. 
She thinks I'll destuff it and make a "total mess".
Who?????    ME?!?!?!!!!

We Interrupt this Program...

Just a little break from the camping posts while we're up visiting my Pop-pop for his birfday.
I always like visiting cuz he's got such a big place for me to watch for things (bears and such)....

 ...and such wide areas for pooping...

I found my spot in front of the dragon, even though it wasn't warm this time.

I wanted to buy this motorcycle for Pop-pop, but it didn't come with a side car for me!

Hope you all have a grrreat Labor Day tomorrow!!
