Buzz is usually a high-energy dog, but sometimes he turns it up to 11. Buzz had some extra energy last night, so I got out his tuggy for a quick game.
“Tug tug tug!!!!!”
But, while only played tug for about 3 minutes, Buzz continued to play for the next two hours.
“I’m on my belly, dominating the tuggy!”
“Look everybody! I’m doing a headstand and still dominating the tuggy!”
“I am the champion and the best!”
“What do you mean it is bedtime? I have tugs to dominate!”
Buzz, if you go to bed and sleep like a good boy, we can run at the lake tomorrow morning. Just be quiet and calm for eight hours.
“Deal! I will tuck myself into my comfy crate and dream of sticks and lakes and mud.”
Dear reader, in the pictures you will see if you scroll down, Buzz is burning approximately one million calories. The effect of viewing these pictures is unknown, but they may make you feel much less or much more energetic. You’ve been warned!
The calm before the storm.
Just smelling the smells and seeing the sights.
Starting to have a little bit of fun...
Picking up speed...
Drat! He's back on leash because we're approaching the smaller lake and it sounds like the swans are on the near shore.
Yep, the swans were right by the trail having a swim and a honky little talk.
Buzz was interested, but not too interested.
By which I mean that he made no attempt to eat them, but he did watch them closely.
Once we moved along, Buzz started to get some funny ideas. Like, why not walk on two legs for a while?
Prepare for lift-off!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s SuperBuzz!
He started to look a little tired from the bipedal walking and the flying…
See, he calmly stepped over this fallen tree! Tired, right?
Uh-oh, I spoke to soon!
“THE LAKE! THE LAKE! THE LAKE!”
(Yes, it is November in Michigan, but it was 60 degrees out today, so Buzz was not in danger of freezing.)
“FETCHING IN WATER IS MY FAVORITE!”
“I’m only holding still ‘cause you’ve got my stick. Throw it. Throw. Throw it. Throw the stick. Stick. Stick needs to be thrown. Throw.”
“Check out THIS AWESOME STICK!”
“I like this one, too! I LOVE ALL THE STICKS!”
“Okay, time to dry off!”
“What are you laughing at?”
“Oh, this seems to work better when I get out of the water and then shake.”
‘Oh, look at my dog, all nice and clean,’ thought the food lady who was prone to jinxing herself and speaking too soon.
‘Oh well, at least he seems to be worn out now,’ thought the food lady who was prone to jinxing herself and speaking too soon.
::::food lady smacks herself upside the head:::
Next on the menu: a love affair with a stick.
Or maybe tree is a better word for it.
Buzz seemed to agree that it was oversized, so he snapped little pieces off of it for a while and then tossed it aside. Just like a man. Sigh.
Oh, isn’t it too bad he’s not in focus here?
Dear reader, are you tired yet? Buzz isn’t!
Not at all!
Okay, maybe a little.
