My July 4th was Firework-tastic

I can’t believe it’s mid-July already and I’ve forgotten to update you about all the fun things in my life! But I guess I’ll do that all one post at a time and start with one of my favorite days this month–the 4th of July!!

I look forward to this day all year for two reasons–

1) I get to wear my special patriotic bandana. I rarely ever get to wear clothes but this is one of those special outfit times, mom says.

Oops, you can’t see it very well in this picture do I’ll post another one. This is me taking my holiday pre-excitement nap.

2) We get to do fun things outside! This year, it was a hike- oh boy my favorite!

After my nap, we got in the car and drove across the bridge. I’ll skip ahead a couple hours because I’m still a little mad about the part of the day when I was locked in a friends backyard while everyone else had fun inside. Sheesh!

Anyway, eventually, we drove up a mountain to a new hiking path. I was a little hesitant when I got out of the car, I wasn’t quite sure where we were going, but as soon as we got on the trail, the fun started!

I took the lead on the hiking trail

And about a mile in, guess what I found?? A stream!!! Oh boy, I was so excited I sprinted over there for a little swim.

And you can guess what came next— time to roll in the dirt! I found a few good dirt patches.

I was a wet, filthy, happy dog! Mom was grossed out but so happy that I was happy.

As soon as we got home though, I immediately got put in the bathtub. And then slept for two hours curled up in blankets with my toys.

But don’t worry, I woke up before fireworks! I wasn’t scared one bit, in fact I was more interested in what the people on the roof next to us we’re doing…maybe they had food?

Happy belated 4th, friends! What has your favorite day of the month been so far?
