Hi! I’m Mort and here’s my report.
Skateboards: I gots one!
This weekend was a particularly good one. It started out with fireworks, but I don’t care about those. I guess I’m a lucky dog because the other dog seems a bit concerned about them. I don’t know why. But the girl bought me a present, and I love things that come home in the car! This one was all for me!
But check out how excited I was when it first came home!
Me checking it out!
See I’m a pretty crazy kelpie. Neighbors totally love me!
Swimming: I don’t swim so good in blue water but I tried
The next day the girl and the boy drove me out to a place called “Dock Diving”. I whined for most of the ride there becuase I knew it was going to be GOOD. They put my toyz in the car and both of us dogs in the tube, and that always means a good thing will happen when we get out. So I thought I’d remind them to drive fast for an hour. I think they were so happy I was reminding them to get to the fun place fast! (Editors note: No, no we were not happy about the whining. At all.)
So we gots out and guess what! It was a new place entirely! This new place had my dog friend Vader at it too. There was a huge lake-like thing my girl calls a Dock Diving and my toys went into it, and the girl thought I should go into it to fetch the toys.
Yeah, it was this. That dog is NOT me. In fact, there are no pictures of me doing this because… I didn’t really do it like the other dogs. The water is not like the lake place at all! It’s clear and I can see it’s so DEEP!
The girl helped me, and so did another man I did not know. I barked at him a little to tell him I was a bit concerned about his hat and sunglasses, but he was OK and pushed my bum into the water. And I swimmed without my swimmy vest even! I got the ball, and I got up a ramp and out of the pool!
The girl made me do this a few times, and then we just watched the other dogs and played some agility. I did the teeter, no problem, and I never dids a big teeter before ever! The girl made a big smile at me!
Searching: I dids a “Barn Hunt”
The next day the girl took me back to that place, and oh boy was it exciting. We played with the toys and I saw my dog friend Ninja! Ninja is a border collie and we’re both FAST. Maybe Ninja is even faster than me, I loves Ninja.
The girl took me into a spot where I had to pick a tube with a rat inside. They think they hide them in the tubes, but oh boy it didn’t fool me. I went right to the one and my eyes went big and I started digging at the tube telling the girl ITS HERE! ITS IN HERE! The girl said RAT and everyone was happy with us. So happy with us! I was such a smart boy.
So then we did it again later, and it was harder. Well, for the girl. So now I had to go under these big squares of hay, and over hay, and around hay. The girl pointed to places and I went to them. Then I found the rat! I dug my nose into the hay, and I sniffed at it. I even made a hole to the rat using my nose poking at the hay. I looked at her, but my girl didn’t say RAT! So I thought I’d just go look at other things, and then we stopped. A lady took us back to the rat and showed the girl, just like I did! The girl slapped her forehead and called herself a “handler error.” I don’t knows what that means. But she said I was such a good boy when we looked at the rat again, and everyone was so happy.
I just don’t know why the rat has to be in his rat house! I wish the rat would come out to play.
Then we went home. The boy and the girl think I should be tired, but I’m not. I’m never tired. I just wait for the next adventure! Find out my next adventure in next week’s The Mort Report.
