Riley the CKCS visits us!

A while back (again) Riley came over to stay with us while his family went off to Canada for a holiday. He doesn't play much with me but its always nice to have a buddy to talk to and someone to tell when my mummy and daddy returns home. =)

I took him out for a walk at Shoreline to show him around like the good host I am. Ok, he had to sit in the back seat though.

The premium front and centre seat is MINE! =)

Well, Riley and I are kinda opposites...

Like opposite poles of a magnet. I'm sure Daddy agrees.

On superbly rare moments we sniff the exact same spot and discuss the importance of canine botanical science.

We occasionally walk nicely like so....but....

most of the time it was a game of "see-how-far-daddy's-arms-can-spread". Hee...!

Just before entering the trail Daddy makes the important pit stop.

Mutt Mitts! Degradable poo bags! Just like the ones Pawsitive Sensations sponsors at Botanic Gardens in Singapore. =)

Good thing Daddy took it cos a dog's gotta poo what a dog's gotta poo.

Aren't these nice flowers? =) name unknown (mummy is a flop when identifying flora...hee!)

Once again, Riley and I just don't face the same direction. We tried...seriously...like a 10 times to get the pose right. No hope there.

Back on the trail again....

And yet another failed attempt to take a group photo.

This was our standard walking stance. Daddy got in the groove after a while. Hee!

At the bottom of the trail i was off-leash for but a brief moment cos mummy saw me sticking my face into what could be foxtails and daddy thought he spied poison ivy. Apparantly both aren't so good for doggies.

Back on the leash again, Daddy ran with us!

Oh! A hare ran across our path. He was SO fast that by the time mummy whipped out the camera to take a pic of it...it was but a speck.

Ok. See my face? I was praying. Hard. There's an upslope here that's like a mini hill for a corgi. (Yah, ok...its the short legs. Laugh at us.)
"Dear Lord, gimme strength...else give daddy a soft heart and get him to carry me."

Notice that long-legged Riley has NO problems with this challenge.

He made it up first. What?!??! Jump up THAT????

My body is long enough for me to peep over the top...but uh. my leg? hellooooooo?

Well, at least i look nice in this pose right? After plenty of giggling on the humans' part, they finally coaxed me to the side which didn't have this gigantic step to jump over. phooey.

On the way back, Riley seemed fine and sat in the back with Mummy.

I got the all important front seat with Daddy!

And as long walks go...there's always the concussed ending. Zzzzzzzzz..........

Did i mention....CONCUSS?

This is Riley curled up near mummy's feet.


So i dragged my half-dead body over to daddy's feet and knocked out there.

Two snoring doggies is just awesome isn't it?
