A few days ago a miracle happened and spring actually remembered to come and pay a visit to Minnesota! Unfortunately, the visit lasted only 5 days and then winter came back. Hopefully spring will return again in a few days and stay for good! On one of the first really nice days, mom took us to a place we had not been to before – Thomas Lake. We love exploring new places and sniffing all the new smells.
Since the snow had just melted everything was still pretty much brown and dead, so it looked almost more like fall than spring but we did not care, it was 70 degrees and we were enjoying it! As usual, I was the pack leader walking way out front on my flexi leash. If someone is coming by I go back to mom and walk by her, but when we are along it makes exploring so much more fun since I have lots of room to move around and for some reason, mom is not into off road hiking like I am. My sister tends to stay back by mom since she is older and not quite as speedy as I am.
The place was called Thomas Lake because there is a smaller lake there and they had a little fishing pier we could go out on. I really wanted to skip the pier and just go in the lake but mom doesn’t like me getting all wet at the end of a walk unless it is really hot out. The ice was off of about half of the lake, so that was also good to see…I can feel the beginning of swimming season!
That was another fun fitness field trip with mom and my sister. We all love getting out and finding new places to walk and play, it keeps our walks interesting!
