Hiking

We went hiking! We drove to a new place, a place I had never been before. We went to a house where we had our own room for the night. We sometimes do this and I always think it very odd, because there are lots of unfamiliar smells in these rooms. M puts my bed on the floor and my water and food bowls next to it and tells me this is our home for now, but it never feels like home to me. Anyway, I knew there was an Adventure ahead when they spread this on the bed:

Oh dear

It is a piece of paper and M looks at it a lot, when we are hiking. P does not, he has this black device where he looks at (a lot). The thing even talks to him, and sometimes P talks to it, too. There are certain things a dog will never understand and that is fine, I am learning as I am growing up.

So we hiked and it was nice. The woods are beautiful over there:

There were vast dunes, although no sea – for some reason all the water was gone:

We hiked past some houses along a quiet street. There was a traffic sign telling humans to take care and slow down, for the sake of dogs. How thoughtful!

We had a great hike. The device that is talking to P showed us what we had walked. M and P really like this, so I will show it to you, for their sake. I personally think it is silly because this is not what we hiked: there is no smell and no taste and no sound to it and that is what makes a good hike.

What is even more silly: they use this device for navigation. But they don’t need navigation when they are with me! I will bring them back to our car or home anytime, they just need to tell me where they want to go. I never get lost. If I had known we were heading for our car, I would have brought them there immediately. But no, they had to figure it out themselves, with the help of the paper M carried and the device of P. That is why our hike ended up looking like this:

Not very effective, right? But well, it was a nice hike.

By the way, there was one disappointing thing: there were no squirrels, no matter how hard I looked.

Alert but no squirrels
