Loading the green machine was quite an exciting event. Both dogs were anxious to go somewhere new. Max just gets in and settles down. Sasha likes to sit between us, and watch where we are going, paying careful attention to every turn.
We were told of this waterhole in the next town over. I was still unsure exactly where it was, or if other dogs would be there or not. I called a friend on the way to ensure we were in the right area, but was unable to reach her. Google satalite didnt show water very well, so we decided to risk and try it out.
We reached what we thought was the designation, saddled up the horses, opps, I mean leashed up the pups and hiked off the main road.
Sasha was very excited about all the new smells and sounds of crickets, birds and insects. We kept a close watch for critters and snakes.
Finally, we reached what we thought would be a water hole, but...
Where's the water??? Oh no!!!
So we hiked back, through what felt like the barren desert (yes, this is sunny California!). Despite what Sasha says, Max is NOT afraid of his own shadow:
Where to next, mom?
Fortunatly, I had thought ahead, and made reservations at a friends pool, just in case we didnt find the water hole. So back to town we go. Sasha has been here before, but we cant get her past the first step. She wants to try so bad, but cant get past the depth drop.
This was Max's first visit. He comes to the edge and just lays down, no matter how hard we tried!
Now, how can I force this face into the water? He was just happy to be cooled down with splashes.Even though we never found the water hole. Both dogs were thourghly exhausted and slept the rest of the day.
Until next monday--- Sit!
