Today Tierra and I decided to go for a stroll to the beach on our own. Our mom and dad were setting up some new "used" furniture and it was a hot day so we decided to leave for just a minute and come back before they'd notice we were gone. We went just a few blocks-- running, swimming and jumping over the waves. It was soo fun but we decided we'd better head home so we shook ourselves off and hurried along the rocks to the path up the hill.
We really were on our way back, but then, well, I found the delicious smelling dead seal that I have been wanting to chew and Tierra found tons of starfish to eat. Our mom and dad never let us do any of that fun stuff, so we just couldn't resist staying a little longer. We figured they'd never know.
We were wrong. Mom and dad did notice we were gone and spent 30 minutes hunting the neighbourhood. Dad said they were looking along the street because they thought we ran off after a deer--until a neighbour said, "If they're labs, I'd be looking along the beach!" Mom was so worried when we were gone and so happy when she found us, she didn't even get us in trouble, though she did keep saying I smelled horrible.
We got to go swimming in the clean river and played fetch for hours. Mom said she was trying to get the smell out but now she says I still stink "like a dead animal" and says I need a bath..ick. I didn't mind fetching but I've never had a bath here so I'm a little nervous!
