Bridget and Spike become fed up with me and stage a protest bark.
“Okay, okay. I’m closing it up right now!” Can’t blame the little pumpkin heads. They want to explore their new home.
We go for a walk along Ivie Creek.
It’s good for the crew to investigate their new home before I cart them off on an errand or excursion somewhere. That fits my pace just fine.
The opportunity for interesting walks! Walking this creek is such a pleasure. I love finding shady “rooms” like this one.
Unlike the constant roar of the Green River rapids, Ivie Creek makes cheerful, bubbly conversation.
You didn’t think we’d make it all the way through this walk without Spike taking a soak, did you?
On this short walk, Spike tops his personal best for soaks in one day. The water is icy cold and probably makes his arthritic bones feel better. I love how Spike lives life to the fullest!
We cuddle and watch the water flow downstream. Spike is around somewhere doing whatever Spike does when my back is turned.
How could anyone be nervous or agitated in a setting such as this? Bridget and I gaze at this scene (below) from the bridge until Spike shows up.
“Ready to go home, boy?”
Coming up in the next post . . .
The excitement continues tomorrow as Spike, Bridget and I go to town!
