You guessed right! Mummy did go out to buy me some outfits and came back with two - one knitted and one kind of waterproof material on the outside with soft fluffy stuff on the inside; the other one is knitted and reminds me of a Zebra (whatever that is), only the colours are brown and tan. Mainly brown with thinnish tan lines. Fits very snuggish - you should see me! But, alas, the first one is too small (hee hee, she under-estimated my size) and she needs to go and change it for a larger size.
First we went over to Salamanca where I socialised with some humans. I tell you, Human, I was the Star attraction on the block! Some humans seem to think I have Shar-Pei in my ancestry because of all my extra skin and folds I have. What can I say? I wasn't there when it happened - I was just the result of the happening! The only problem I had in Salamanca was with Mummy - she wanted to go 'walkies' and I did not - so she kind of dragged me along on the leash. Silly girl. I could see the nice green grass across the road where all the fallen autumn leaves were blowing around and once the light-bulb went on in her, she took me across the road. I had such fun chasing and going after the fallen leaves. We did not stay there for long because Mummy wanted to take me across to the beach (What is that? A new way of spelling female dog??) at Bellerive - so she won, and we went. I mean, let's be realistic here - who has the car keys, hey?
Anyway, we got to Bellerive and I was speechless at the noise the water made - and it just kept on coming back at me - again and again. I was not that impressed with the ongoing noise. Then it happened! Mummy put me down on the SAND. Naturally, being a dog you know, I bent to smell this stuff under my feet and got quite a surprise when it went up my nose and got me sneezing! What made things exciting for me was the fact that when I exhaled, the sand blew away - wooofffeeee! This was fun but I got bored after a while because nothing else happened. Mummy tried all kinds of things from begging, to 'good boy', to walking, to 'come' but I literally dug my heels in - and got dragged again! I do not know whether Mummy kept an eye on the moving water - but I sure did. You can never tell with humans what next they might do!
At last we got to some stairs and I think by then Mummy got the message - Paxton does not like to walk on sand (well, today at least). Luckily for me there was some grass (great stuff this green stuff) and I could let go of the water-works. Must say, this outfit she got me fits nicely - I do not have to worry about getting it messed up with poop or peep. After that I did not mind a little jog back to the car - just so that the old girl feels a bit better!
Slept all the way back home and am now lying inside the house in front of a lovely heater, dictating to Mummy. I know, I know, what an author does not have to go through to get some decent help today - but she will do!
I am not looking forward to tomorrow because that is when I will end up on my own for the whole day because Mummy goes back to work. I am really going to miss her! It is so long before she comes home again but I think she may take me for a bit of a run before she leaves and that will drain some of my energy and I may be able to sleep for most of the morning. Will have to find something to keep me busy with in the afternoon.
OK - I think that is all I am able to recall of my day so far and will catch you next time 'round.
