Sensational Saturday

Today was a beautiful day in East Tennessee - the rains were gone and the sun was shining. We got up early and headed to the Feed Store for a little more of Merrick's Pot Pie [mom is determined to get me back to eating food prepared especially for dogs; she says it's healthy for me...I'm not convinced] and then off to Melton Lake

The Oak Ridge Feed Store - I'm not sure why they call it a feed store because to me that indicates they have "feed" which implies cows and horses - THEY DON'T!!!! They only have food for doggies!!!

This is one of the ladies at the store trying her best to convince me that the canned Merrick is both tasty and healthy.....I'm just not convinced!!!!!!

Melton Lake offers a peaceful three mile waterfront trail that is great for biking, walking, running, skating and doggies! It is also home to the Oak Ridge Rowing Association. In the Spring, you can view the best rowing teams in the country as they prepare for the season and compete. The US Olympic team has also trained on Melton Lake.

Hey Where are all the boats?????
We've had a LOT of rain...can you tell?
A GOOSE!!!!!
I found his poo!
Nice people picking up litter
A lady with more energy than my mom!!!
Can you see my dirty belly?
Getting a bath - I don't like baths!
Leave me alone - it's naptime!!

PS - mommy is wondering if anyone knows why on her edit posts she no longer has the option of color on her letters or position of the post - etc.......

    Sometimes Blogger does not let you do the things you normally do but later it lets you do it again. I hope this is the case.
    Have a good night
    Kisses and hugs

  4. Hi Checkers!
    It looks like a beautiful place. Have you seen the US Olympic team there?
    Thank you for visiting my blog! I am happy to see such a pretty boy!

  5. Hi Checkers

    That lake looks great and you looked like you had a great time. I'm with you on the baths though - don't like them too much myself either!

    lots of woofs

  6. WOW! Looks like you had lots of fun! I'm sure the goose poop just made your day as it would have mine!


  7. That lake looks awesome, I would have jumped in for sure. =) Sorry you had to get a bath on top of your wonderful day, what a downer. he he. Nap well. =)

  8. Checkers,

    So nice to meet you! I don't know how much of my blog you've read but I recently posted about soapy water torture. It is a crime against dawgs that we all need to endure, unless we unite and fight back! Unfortunately, there are many dawgs who don't support the claim that baths are torture so until we have all on board I don't think we have a chance of winning... If you want to send me rocks from TN that would be great! You can see my address on the first picture of today's post. The rock can't be any higher than 3/4" or it won't fit under the glass in the table. Thanks!!!
