Meeting new relatives in Upstate New York was a lot of fun. We drove from Olivia’s nose work trial in Pennsylvania to Rochester, New York to meet some of the human family we have never met. Mom hasn’t seen them in a long time, so she was excited for this portion of our six day road trip adventure. We started by meeting them at a park to go for a nice walk together.
The park was in a wooded area and also had waterfalls. Most importantly, there were tons of squirrels and chipmunks. Olivia and I were so busy sniffing and chasing squirrels, the walk just flew by us! We also got into a lot of burrs which is no fun. When we got back to the car, we had to have our furs combed out.
Some spots have big rocks that just scream out loud to be a photo opp! We chose this one rock to take a photo but we were distracted by squirrels.
The best was the pretty waterfalls. Rochester has had a lot of rain this summer, so the water was really running. Going in the water is forbidden for dogs and humans, so we sat nicely next to the water.
Back at the relatives house, we got to hang out by the pool. It was cool out, and the stone floor felt good on our furs. After spending three days mostly in the car, it felt really good to take the walk and then be able to run around by the pool for the day.
Mom says I make a cute mermaid, so I posed by the little mermaid statue at the pool.
Olivia was really curious about the pool. I double dared her to jump in off the diving board. She contemplated doing it but then chickened out. For us meeting new relatives was fun. The little humans really liked us and gave us loads of loving. Mom enjoyed seeing her relatives and having a relaxing day with good company and food. We are thankful for our great road trip!
