"Oooh! Something for ME??"

EDIT: I just realized Star gave us this International Bloggers Community one, too! Thanks, Star :)
They also gave us this one:
And it came with some questions, too!
Things Dobby loves:
1. Sleeping under the covers.
2. Going for walks!
3. Playing fetch with plushy toys.
4. Belly rubs first thing in the morning.
5. Doing tricks (and getting treats!)
6. Food and eating :)
7. Being with mommy and daddy wherever they are!
Dozer also tagged us with a fun game a looooooong time ago and I promise I haven't forgotten! Maybe I will be able to post about it this weekend.
I also got a little behind on reading all of your blogs- sorry! The weather has just been so beautiful, I have a feeling I will get behind again soon ;)

Zinnia belongs to a friend of mine, and we dog-sit for each other. Zin and Dobby are best friends and like to play together sometimes, but Zinnie usually likes to sleep instead. She even steals Dobby's nest! Dobby is nice and accommodates her when she's over, and in return she tries not to boss him around too much.

I often drive past a little park on my way here, and today I decided to take Dobby there on my lunch hour for a walk. It was a little cloudy and calling for scattered thunder storms, so I took my umbrella and figured we wouldn't be out long, so it would all be alright.
I had been there once before with Dobby, sticking to the main roadway through the park. It looked like it was about 2 miles long, and I figured the park couldn't be much wider than just the area I could see. The trail there is called "The Big Loop", but I had no idea how 'big' the loop was. It seemed like just a small community park. Boy, was I wrong!
As it turns out (I've just looked it up) the park is 250 acres, and the Big Loop is over 4 miles long! Dobby and I started through the woods from a parking lot entry point, and quickly got "lost" (can you really get lost on a trail called a "Loop"?). After about 45 minutes of walking, we ran into another hiker and he let us know we were almost smack-dab in the middle of the loop- darn! We couldn't even get back faster by re-tracing our steps back the way we had come, so we kept moving forward. It was raining, but the trees kept us from getting wet. It wasn't too hot, but it was extremely humid! We were both damp and tired by the time I recognized the golf practice area of the park and cut through the woods to get back to the main roadway. It was another 500 yards or so to where we were parked.
Once we got out of the woods, I could see the dark clouds all around us- it was still only sprinkling rain, but the thunder was happening more and more often! We were both very happy to get to the car to cool off in the AC. I was happier than ever about my habit of carrying a water bottle in the car, too.
Now we're safe and sound, back at the office, Dobby asleep in my lap. What an adventure!!

PS- I think my posts have been pretty boring lately! Soon I hope to do a thing Dozer tagged me for a while ago, and hopefully update more often.
