Today I am joining Gizmo and Finn for Park Day 2.0 Bingo! Yes, friends, me, Emma the GBGV howled out loud and clear, BINGO! There were 9 different bingo cards and I selected card 7 (7 is a lucky number you know). To play I had to take photos of me doing the tasks I X’ed out and blog about it. I completed my bingo card on our 2 hour morning adventure walk last Saturday. We took one of my favorite routes over the Bunny Trail (in a wooded area), through the Spirit development and then home through some other less important areas. For me walk area importance is completely based on the number of wabbits and squirrels I usually see. We call the one place the Bunny Trail because there are so many wabbits it is just almost too much! This time of year they are hopping all over the place and I am beside myself. There are lots of squirrels there too but the wabbits are so great! I have to apologize for the photo quality, but mom did not want to carry her good camera with us, so we just had the old point and shoot. Sometimes mom can be so lazy!
I am also joining in the FitDog Friday blog hop hosted by hosted by SlimDoggy, Peggy’s Pet Place and To Dog With Love as walking is great fitness and this Bingo was a result of my long walk with mom and my sister Katie. I was counting how many parks we were in or passed on our adventure and I ran out of paw pads on one paw and had to use a second paw…7 was the total (note, once again that very lucky number 7)!
Here it is, my precious BINGO card, and below are the photos to go along with the X’s.
Here I was at 6:30 am at the park down the street right around sunrise time. I do look a bit tired still, but mom likes to be up and at it early every day. I usually get up before her but just lounge in my window bed for an hour or two before going out. This morning I had to start paw padding down the road earlier than usual to try to catch the sunrise thing. As always, click on a photo for a larger version.
Next in line was to have fun in a park on a slide or swing. I’m simply too big for a swing, so I got up on the pretty red slide. Ready set…oops, I was supposed to go down the slide but I was sidetracked by a wonderful scent blowing by in the air. MMM…do I smell cows???
The middle X was a free space but I decided to get a park bench photo anyway. It feels good to rest your little behind for a moment on a long walk but these benches aren’t really designed for dog comfort.
The fourth task was to visit the nearest body of water. Well, here in Minnesota there is water everywhere, so I stopped at all the different water places on our route that morning. Katie also posed with me a couple times as I didn’t want her to feel left out of the game. She thinks I am crazy with my blog and social media stuff. She feels that I am way to ridiculous but then if I don’t include her now and then she gets all upset, so I let her pose in some non-humorous photos.
The last task was super simple Simon because mom and I had already pawed Gizmo’s facebook like button a while back so that was done 🙂
