Sassy Sunday (1-2-2011)

Happy New Year!
At least that's what all the humans around here keep saying.  Anyway, I'm glad you stopped by.
For New Year's Day the fam took a great walk out at the Watershed Nature Center here in town.  It's a great place to go for both humans and dogs.  This beautiful park actually used to be the sewer lagoon for the city.  After it was abandoned, some citizens proposed it be turned into a nature preserve.

Here are some pics of us out there.

One can often see different types of water fowl and other animals.  Sometimes we see blue herons out there.  Today we saw tons of deer tracks.  And we saw some swimming squirrels!  Check them out.  They were great big squirrels and they were swimming and diving and splashing in the water.

Have you ever seen such cool squirrels?  I am a good swimmer.  Usually when I chase squirrels in the yard they get out before I can catch them.  But I bet I could've gotten one of these.  But Barb held on to my leash and wouldn't let me jump in.  Oh, well.  It was freezing outside.  I heard one of the boys tell the grown-ups, "It's so cold outside I bet I got about 5 frost bites!"  So it's probably a good idea I didn't get in the water.
We saw a few other people and dogs out there, but not too many.
Then we came home and the humans ate black eyed peas and cornbread.  They didn't give me any of that, but I got a little taste of the pork roast. :)

Well, thanks again for stopping by.  I love it when you do!  And leave me a comment.  Barb will read it to me. :)

Sassy, is your human sure those are squirels? Their heads look like beavers, but I'm just a lowly human and am probably wrong. Steel yourself for moans and groans tomorrow when your kids have to get up and head off to school.

My humans told me they weren't squirrels, but I don't believe them. Any little brown animal that I can chase is a squirrel!
