Hello my pals in Blogville. We finally made it to the lovely south shore of Lake Tahoe. It was a pretty long drive (about 4-5 hours, I am told) but I just chilled in my crate, snoring and occasionally watching the scenery change.
We arrived mid afternoon and unloaded the car. I was the last to be unloaded, harrrrruumph! Because of the coyotes and bears, I am not allowed off leash. Once the car was empty, I was finally allowed to relieve myself! And whatta relief it was!
The rest of the afternoon was uneventful and I played with a chewy treat most of the time. The Mommys were setting things up, putting things away, and so on.
Après dinner we all took a walk around the meadows. It was a lovely time of the evening and the day was cooling off so nicely that I hardly panted at all. We met up with this other doggy who was walking her mommy. She was a senior cocker spaniel named Echo (pretty name huh? She was named after a Sierra lake near Tahoe). She is deaf but you can't really tell.
All of a sudden they stopped and said GULP really loudly. Up ahead were two HUGE coyotes staring hungrily at Echo and Moi! They were scary looking. We weren't too sure what to do but Echo's mommy suggested we walk as a group and talk very loudly. Maybe, she thought, it will scare them. It didn't really scare them but they did start to walk away some, slowly. We kept walking and talking loudly and saw that the coyotes had turned a corner - the corner WE were heading toward. We saw one pooping near the softball field but not the other. I think he said "You do your thing Dude, I am going over here!"
Then we saw why. A Bluejay was dive bombing at the coyotes and screeching at them! They wanted nothing to do with him and kept on going and at a much faster pace!
The rest of our walk home was uneventful, whew!
Sorry for the lack of pictures of me. Mommy is having some computer problems and her iPad is not letting her add photos.
