Starting off on the hike

Heading towards the woods
The official hike was only 1.8 miles long, and ended a short way after the woods, but I wanted to keep going so Mommy said we could. I was glad we did because I managed to hike to the bridge over the river which meant that I got to take a short swim!
Taking a cooling off swim in the river
Ominous clouds rolled in and for a bit we thought we'd get rained on, but we didn't.
I'm getting tired and lagging behind
You might notice that I'm wearing my choke chain. Normally I don't wear that collar, but I have a skin tag or small fatty tumor right where my harness sits on my chest and I decided last night to try to remove it myself. It is an ugly bloody mess and Mommy says when I go back to the vet on Tuesday for my next laser treatment she is going to ask the vet to burn it off, assuming I don't finish chewing it off before then. Bad Mommy put peroxide on it after the hike because of my swimming in the river. Ouch!
Hooray! Mommy's car!
My back end was very tired when we got to the car and I had trouble getting in. I got stuck in the footwell until Mommy came and helped me up onto the seat. I hope these laser treatments work so I don't end up in embarrassing situations like that anymore.
The total distance I ended up hiking was 2.5 miles.
