Weekday Roadtrip?!

My mom took lots of pictures.

Mom and dad got home from work yesterday and got out my travel bag!  I was SO excited to be going somewhere, but I wasn't sure where we were heading.  We loaded up the firebird and off we went!  That's when I noticed mom brought along my lifejacket... hm, wonder where we could possibly be heading!  Can't be the lake, because it's a weekday!  I decided I was just going to enjoy the ride...
Dad, I'm pretty sure I've got this driving thing.  Can I take the wheel?
Wooooooooo!  I'm driving!!!!  (a dog can dream, can't he?)
Hmm.... this is pretty far north.
Ladies, I've got the driving thing down, so let me know and I'll come pick you up, we can cruise around in dads my firebird.  I'll bring some treats and we can have a picnic, sound good?

Yep, we're on the boat on a WEDNESDAY!
Dad said something about the boat leaking gas, so we had to go up and burn some.  It was super hot out, so any excuse to take a boat ride was fine by us! 
Hey, mom!  Are you coming in?
Will you come in if I bring you my toy?
Uh, mom... there's a duck.  Can I play with it?
The DUCKS mom!  The DUCKS! Do you see the DUCKS!
Yea, see, Dad sees the ducks!  Come on, put my jacket on!  Lets get 'em!
Oh... they're fast.
Why do you keep throwing my toy in the water?
This is the last time I'm bring it back for you.
See, you didn't believe me.  Now you can go get my toy, dad.
Good job, dad! Can I have it now?
I have a new favorite spot, but mom and dad sid I couldn't stay here while the boat was going fast.

We caught a pretty sunset on the way back to the dock
It was a short trip because we got up there so late because the pawents had to do the work thing.  But it was definitely worth it!  When we got back to the dock there were two other doggies for me to play with!  Well, one of them was older and didn't want to play with me, but Gracie was a few months older than me, and after she convinced me that she was much cooler than her sister, I decided to give it a go!  We had a great time playing, but I wasn't sure why we were staying so long and not heading home...
She was lots bigger than me, and we moved so fast it was hard for mom to take our picture!
We had a lot of fun, then it got dark and she had to go home.
What do you MEAN the firebird is broke?  How are we going to get home mom?!
Are you sure Grandpaw Jack is coming for us?
While we waited for Grandpaw Jack to come pick us up, mom and dad went to get pizza.  I quickly became the newest tourist attraction at Lake George!  I met lots of cool new people and kids!  Mom kept saying how proud she was of me.  Kids scare me a bit and mom thinks my first home had little kids that hit me and tugged on my tail and ears... I keep telling her I blocked all of that stuff out and don't remember any of it, but she says that it still might effect me subconsciencely.  Whatever that means... She gave the kids lots of treats to give me... as long as kids have treats, I love them!  She said it was some steps in the correct direction.  Whatever, dude.  I was happy to see Grandpaw Jack when he got there, but soon fell asleep on moms lap for the ride home.  I was super tired!!!!

So that was my night last night... and guess what tonight holds?!?!!??!?! 
I get to meet the Maggie Mae in the furlife!!!!!
So, I'm sure I'll have lots of stories for you all tomorrow too!  Did ya stay with me through this one???  It was a long one.  But I'm handsome... so it's ok.  (right?)

Later dudes!  Later dudettes!  Time for a nap...

  4. Oh Corbin! I wish I could go swimming like that. I haven't even been in the lake at The Crossings! I get a little nervous. Maybe you can show me how someday. Emmett and I met last night and had lots of fun. Mom says she and Dad are busy tonight so I can't come. I am sad to not be able to come meet you and Maggie Mae :( Maybe next week we can try again. Would love to shake paws wif u.

  6. Oh my dog Corbin, looks like you had a fun day! And so super cool you got to meet Maggie Mae :)

  7. What a great day you must have had. Sounds like Mom and Dad didn't have a such a great time with the boat leaking and the Firebird not working. But it looks like you made the most of it. Looked like lots of fun.

  8. We laughed and laughed at you making your Dad go get your toy! And we love those blurry action shots with Grace.

    Looks like a fantastic time out.....don't know that we want to go out in the Firebird until it's working.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  9. Wow Corbin! You are a GREAT swimmer!!

    You need to give Maggie Mae some swimming tips when you sees her! BOL!!

    How's da Firebird??? Just when I was ready to give you a call to take me for a spin, you tells us it broke downs. Bummer.


  10. How I envy you! I'd love to be near a lake where I could go swimming all the time. Being the center of attention at dinner is right up my alley, too!


  11. I hope you're having a great time with Maggie Mae right now. Can't wait for the reports.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  12. Oh wow, it looks like you had a great time!

  15. Hi Corbin,
    Nice to meet a new friend.
    Boat ride and a swim, can't get any better than that. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

  16. Sorry that your car is broken. Mom and Dad got a pretty cool new zoomie car themselves (some sort of Porsche GT-something-or-other), so if you want to go for a ride, I'll come pick YOU up!!! Looks like a great (if late) day on the water!
