We made it!

This morning, I woke up early and called to my new friend Claire, who promptly jumped on us.  Mom made us go back to bed until 6:30.  Then, Claire and I ran around like idiots until Mom tried to take a picture of us.  I hate pictures, so I hid.  Now it was time to get back in the car, so I waved goodbye to my new friends and we took off, seatbelt on.

The drive across Washington was fantastic.  I still can't get over the scenery.  Mom knew that I had been really good in the car for this entire trip, so she planned a hike for us today.  We climbed through Snoqualmie Pass...  Four whole miles at high altitude, and I led the entire way!  Mom was really excited, because she found a great geocache.  I found a small dog tag in the box in memory of another canine cacher, and we picked it up to bring back to Tennessee (see the picture of me next to the pile of rocks and sticks - the box was hidden in the pile.  The little green tag is on the steel to my left). 

When we arrived in Seattle, I was really excited that we were going on another long walk.  However, this was my first "city training run".  I need to learn to walk really close to Mom; to walk when she does and stop when she does.  I have to cross the street on the walk signs, and learn to do my business on the curb.  There is a lot to remember, and all of the work made me really sleepy...
