Fun, friends and flipflops

Mummy and daddy recently bought me a kong safestix, this is mostly because I love retrieving sticks from the pond and mummy worries about me hurting myself. So yesterday when we went down to the pond, we tried it out. And as you can imagine, I wasn’t interested at all. So much so that daddy had to wade into the pond to retrieve it LOL.

Luckily he’d bought his flipflops along just in case. But then lost them in the water.

Thankfully he found a stick to use. See, sticks are the best and multifunctional!

While there I made friends with an Akita called Caine. He’s a rescue and not usually allowed off-lead. He also doesn’t like water. But with a bit of encouragement he took a dip. First of all on-lead with his daddy and later he went in voluntarily by himself.2014-05-11 12.55.33

Caine and I got on so well that they decided to let him off-lead for us to play, and boy did we play! And play and play.

His peeps are really pleased as he rarely gets the chance. And they were particularly happy that when we played chase he didn’t run off and instead followed me back to where they were waiting.

All in all it was a really good day. But it didn’t end well. Mummy said I was stinky and made me have a bath:-(

Do you do anything fun this weekend?

  1. LOL well it is not a real stick is it Misaki so no fooling you. Hope daddy found his flip flop. Looks like you had a great time with your new friend. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. He he – sticks rule! How lovely you were able to give Caine some off-lead time – he and his peeps must have really enjoyed that as much as you did.

  4. I guessed it, sticks are essential! I’m glad, Caine was still on your side and could enjoy a great off-leash time. My dad said, that’s the girl-power, no guy will run away when a beautiful girl is there :O)

  5. Oh Misaki I bet it was worth it having that icky old bath because you’d had such a FUN day in the water and playing with your new buddy at the park!! I can’t imagine you being stinky either…..well….maybe a little!

    Hugs and thanks for the blogaversary card………. 🙂
    Love, Sammy

    What a great girl you are Misaki helping a new friend overcome a water fear!! you really are so divine! and poor dad…but then again real sticks are dangerous even if they are soooooo much fun!! hugs Fozziemum xxxx

  7. That stinky thing happens to you a lot, M. Baths are the things that stink, really! I’m happy you taught Caine how to be good off lead.

    Love and licks,

  10. It looks like you had a fabulous time, Misaki! And how accommodating your daddy was, to wade in and get the toy you wouldn’t! Now THAT’s a thoughtful peep!

  11. PigLove says:

    That looks like a great adventure my friend. I also tried something new this weekend – clams. Mom brought me home a piggy bag full of them. They were so very tasty! XOXO – Bacon

  12. Looks like tons of fun!!!

    Well you told them…..good old fashion sticks are the best and very useful. Congrats on making a friend! You two look like you were having paws of fun. XD

  14. Look at you, Misaki…you make friends wherever you go! What a fun time you had! I am sorry though that you had to have the dreaded bath. Why do moms insist on those?
    Happy Monday,

  15. Frankie and Ernie says:

    It was WONDERFUL of you to teach that guy HOW to PLAY and have super FUN. Maybe you two can have more meet ups. THAT would be grrrrrrrrreat.

  16. You and your friends are adorable. What fun!!

  17. hungryhungryhippo404 says:

    Haha sounds like you’ve managed to perfect the art of fetch – getting your dad to do it! 😛

  18. Kyla says:

    Does your Dad do other tricks like roll over or play dead? No, losing footware in the water doesn’t count.

  19. Two French Bulldogs says:

    It look like daddy liked the toy since he retrieved it, BOL

  20. You look like you had lots of fun! How awesome that you made a new friend? 🙂 You really do have your parents trained well. Glad you had fun. Here we had rainy weather so not much going on. Us kitties are sleeping and the doggies are “pouting” because of all the rain.
    Have a wonderful day!

  21. Will and Eko says:

    I guess there’s just no substitute for a good old-fashioned stick – accept no substitutes!

  22. carraig1 says:

    Nothing like a new friend to play with. And congrats on teaching Dad about the important things, like real sticks.

  23. speedyrabbit says:

    Looks like you had lots of fun Misaki,xx Speedy

  24. Why do peeps come up with such strange ideas? Why replace a stick with a TOY stick? Sheesh! I’m glad you and your new furiend had fun!

  25. crazystacey says:

    Wow … looks like everyone had a fun filled day and you met a new friend. Hope your parents got contact info so you can see each other again.
    Too bad about your Dad’s flip flops but at least he found a good stick and good sticks can be hard to find. Well, at least they are here in the city!

  26. The OP Pack says:

    Misaki, we don’t do fetch, but we do love to chew on a good stick. We agree with you – a stick is much tastier than a kong stick:)

    Your new pal looks like a fun guy – hope you two meet up again.

    Hi Y’all!

    Oh that was so wonderful that you were able to make friends with Caine and have an unscheduled play date! Wasn’t all that fun worth the bath? I actually love getting a bath because I get a wonderful massage!

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  28. WOW Misaki!! You certainly had a lot of fun with your new friend 🙂

  29. amkuska says:

    Mom only calls us stinky when we’ve rolled in chicken poo. 🙂 Guess you’re mom is more picky!

  30. Wows! Looks like you found a great pal to play with Misaki!!
    I thinks it was worth the bath!
    Ruby ♥

  31. Caine was lucky to meet you Misaki, his confidence has increased and you have shown him how to have fun! (a good thing to learn!). poor Dad needs new shoes now!

  32. pawedblog says:

    Oh what a shame, those sticks look like they should be good… nevermind you seemed to have a great day with lots of fun anyway (apart from the bath of course)
    Hugs, Carrie and pups x

  33. Thank Ceiling Cat I don’t have to ‘have a both’…course I stay inside…and…I use my own built in shampoo and conditioner…my tongue and spit! MOL!!

  34. raisingdaisy says:

    Haha yeah our families are so silly like that – making us take baths just because we smell “outdoorsy”. Looks like you had a great time though, so it was worth it!

  35. Finding new friends is always a good thing! And finding them in a pond with sticks is even better!

  36. A Husky Life says:

    What a fun weekend! Too bad about the bath, though….

  37. You and Caine looked like you had some fun! Sticks are the BEST!

  38. Kurome says:

    You sure enjoy yourself Misaki 🙂
    We didn’t have fun this weekend…not yet as mommy is still busy

  39. Clowie says:

    It sounds like you had fun!
    If you’ve had a bath and smell of shampoo you’ll need another dip in the pond soon!
