Back in the Thick of Things

It has taken a week for us to recover from our busy week with Montego. Having finally surfaced from our sleep-deprived stupor, yesterday we went on a fun playdate outing with blogger pal Golden Samantha!

cabana and golden retriever samantha in the bay, samantha has a rope kong toy in her mouth and is swimming, while cabana is closer to the shore and walks alongside, looking at samanthaSo while Sammie was channeling Esther Williams with her effortless dog paddle...

cabana emerging from the water and mud on the rocky shoreline, water is dripping from her open mouth, she has a rabid looking expression on her face, the photo has been manipulated so that it shows closer and closer up photos of her, with the last one a close crop on her crazy face...Cabana was channeling THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON!

cabana standing in the water, covered with splotchy mud to the tip of her dirty tailHonestly, talk about being dirty from the top of her head to the tip of her tail!


Although Cabana loves water, she isn't fond of swimming, so she stays in the shallows. In the video, taken by Samantha's mom, Cabana has to work hard to walk through the mud, as she sinks knee-deep into the mire, while Samantha and another golden retriever swim around gracefully.

that is such a cool park. but how do you get the creature back home? It is enough to deal with fur, much less mud. You are better doggy mommy than me!

Ha ha ha...just loved the video!! I like how Cabana made those most interesting doggie tracks in the mud! What fun.

It looks like everyone is having a blast. I love the video and the music that is playing with it.

You sure had an extra workout tromping through that sticky stuff.
Sorry I missed this play date!! Next one hopefully.
Have a nice weekend!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

Ohhhh Cabana! Great post of a cool day at one of my new fave parks! I could learn some tips from you at how to be more social with dogs - I got the social-with-the-Kong thing down, but... - need your help heheh! Gonna get my post going furry soon, but Mom's been crazy bizzy with weekend "stuff" she says. Will get it done! Such fun and you are a beautiful girl, muddy or non!!!
Big Hugs xoxoxoxo

Sounds like a delightful time for all -- except the clean up afterwards? You have a great life, Cabana!

Woofs and Licks,

Hi Cabana, we read about you at Samantha's. We wish we could run and play in the mud and water too, but we have never been to a lake or a pond or the ocean. We really have to get at Mom to let us do that.

Nice to meet you.

Happy Mother's Day to your Mom.
