Memorial day at Lake Tahoe

This weekend, we all took a trip up to Lake Tahoe. Tim and Chris have lots of friends up there. Their friend Sumner from Hawaii came with us, too. We left early Saturday morning and made it up to Truckee, where we spent the day with Karl and his dog Noni (Karl's wife, Erin, had to work). Noni is a big 4 year-old black Lab, and all she wants to do is play. We had a few moments of aggressive adjustment to figure out one another's boundaries (yes, I probably started it and shouldn't have...Noni is MUCH bigger than me!!). Don't let this somewhat chummy picture of us fool you... we tolerated each other...but I did end up kicking her out of her bed Sunday night and made her sleep on the floor!

Saturday afternoon, we went to a reservoir and Noni played fetch with Karl while I barked at Noni. I did get a little wet and really dirty. I guess it was fun...






So, what no one told me was that I was going to spend the night at this place with this big dog! Eek! Chris, Tim, Sumner, and Karl all left me Saturday night and went somewhere... they said they were going to see their other friends, John and Bruce. Whatever! I was left behind with this big dog I wasn't sure I liked so much! Well, we made the best of it.

The next morning, Karl took us for a long walk and then to his office, where Chris and Tim picked me up for our day's outing. We drove to pick up their other friends and then were off to do a little hike and play at the beach. We went to 'Secret Harbor' on Lake Tahoe and did a short hike down to the water. This is me getting right in, with Tim and Sumner looking on.


This place was fun... I went into the water a bit, met some other dogs, and everyone just relaxed...
