Belly the muddy pug
Back in May, I went on a trip to the Lafayette Resevoir, a big adventure to explore the wilds. I did o.k., and even managed to chase some local wildlife. Well, this past Sunday was normally a Pug Sunday in San Francisco, but the weather was horrible. Mommy and Daddy are weather wusses. I was willing to go and brave the rains to hang with my peeps, maybe meet up with Pug and Dutch, or who knows what else. Well, Mommy and Daddy had a change of plans, and I'm not a big fan of change. But this was a good change...we were goin' to Point Isabel! I've been there once before and I had a ton of fun. But this trip was different...it was all wet and muddy, a perfect place to explore my true doggie side!
When we arrived, I hopped off Daddy's lap, and we were off to explore! They left me on the leash for a bit, Mommy said she didn't want me swimming in the bay water. I can swim like a fish, but my pug body sinks like a stone, so it's not the best idea if my water born instincts take over...
I was soon a free pug! I ran through the trees, stalked a basset hound, and only gave my Mommy a few heart attacks when I ran a bit too far! But I always came back!
It was really muddy, and I got all dirty! I think I can be an outdoor adventure pug, kinda like that dude Bear Grylls ( Daddy watches him on the TV...Mommy thinks he's fake, but I know better).
Notice the perfect retriever like stalking stance...The upraised paw...That basset hound never knew what hit him when I went in for the...great pug butt snif!! He was a cool pooch and after a quick play session, he ran away to be with his beagle friend.
We kept on our trek, closing in on the prize: Daddy wanted a mocha from the snack stand...silly Daddy...I was worn out by the end, and really dirty. I got a BIG surprise, though, when Mommy and Daddy treated me to a spa treatment at the MudPuppy's Tub &' Scrub! It was my first bath done by a pro, and I like it alot!
In the end, it was a good day, and I wasn't too disappointed aboot Pug Sunday. Mommy was peeved at some chick named Mother Nature, 'cause it didn't rain too hard on us, and we were o.k. at point Isabel, but this Mother made it rain hard in a lot of places and we probably would've gotten really wet at Pug Sunday, and Mommy was still fighting with a cold, and didn't wanna get too wet.
Adventure Pug, after the big adventure, was down for the count...zzzzzzz....snort!
