Busy As A Bee

OMD, where to begin?  I was a very busy girl last week and this weekend.  First, Mom and I went on lots of short runs to try and get into better shape. ;)  Then, we went on a hike to Manastash Ridge.  It was kind of dull at first, but then my furiend Sierra showed up, and I got a bit more of a spring in my step. :)  Sorry Mom but I see you ALL the time and Sierra is REALLY fun to play with.  It was an epic adventure up a steep hillside but it felt good to get in a good workout.


Then, to my SURPRISE, I got to go and play with my long lost pal, Brix!  His sister, Anna, was there too but she doesn't really play with us...she acts as the supervisor. ;)  It was so great to see my buddy after such a LONG time...it had been months, literally!  We tired each other out pretty quickly.



Then, I got to meet my new neighbor dog.  Riley is a sweet girl, and she is a Great Dane like my pals Honey, Darwin, Sasha, Murphy, and the Danes Down Under, (which I haven't heard from in a while) so soon she will be bigger than me.  Every time I would get close to her while we were chasing she would immediately roll onto her back...she was quite graceful at the rolling maneuver actually.  I only rolled her into the fence a couple of times...hehehe...have to show her who's Top Dog around here, right! ;)  Don't worry, she was pawfectly fine...I mean, she did it to herself really!


Next up, My Uncle Joel came over!  I had missed him so much.  Although I saw him lots last month, it has been a while since he has been to my house so it was a grrreat treat!  We spent some quality time cuddling on the couch.



Can you guess what the adults played?  Sheesh, where are the earplugs when you need them? 



Mom and I went on a little hike with Dad.



I got a new collar from Ruffwear...it is so lightweight and it almost feels stretchy...very comfy!



And of course, the weekend wouldn't have been complete without a little sunbathing!  Ahhh, I love soaking up the rays!

Nala, you had quite the social weekend - looks like it was all a lot of fun too. How great to get to run and play with so many furiends. We love your new collar. Mom wishes we weren't quite so furry around our necks so our collars would show more.

And that is the best way to end a great weekend - napping in the sun.

Beautiful photos, Nala. Thanks for filling us in. Riley could be your next best friend, and she sounds submissive, an extra plus.
Twink!

Oh Nala - that sounds like a perfect weekend: playdates, sunbathing, visitors...and you even met a doggie like me! :-) Bet you'll be surprised at how big she is next time you meet her - ha! ha!

What a fun week indeed! I think the picture featuring the new collar should be famous somewhere. What a great shot. I want a comfy collar for Africa. I will have to take a gander at their selection.

Thanks for the support for my husband's job. I really appreciate people like you. I hope your job is going great.

Cool neighbor dog. I just met my new neighbor dog, a Jack Russell. Looks like you did a lot of playing while the weather was nice. We got SNOW today! Can you believe it! It didn't stick, tho. Have a good week!

Wow Nala - that sounds like the PERFECT weekend to us! So much fun with so many pals (isn't it great to have confident doggie pals who enjoy a good game?!) and then snuggles on the couch. We simply adored the photo of you snuggling your uncle Joel - you two have such an obvious connection it's a joy to see. Lovely, lovely post! Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

BRUTUS said...

Looks like lots of good times! You are so lucky to have many pals to play with and great places to hike! I'm kinda glad everyone has been so busy - making it easier for me to catch up on reading after the Flat Brutus hiatus!!
