Happy Waters

Mabel Lou here. My mom has been acting really strange lately. She drives our car to the levy where we used to hike before the water went away. She parks and walks over to the levy, looks around and comes back all sad.

Now we do have our wonderful ponds, but Mom and the aunties only go there when we can go as a large pack.  If the pack is not available, we go to Dirty Creek. And if that stinky black and white kitty is there, I don't get to swim at all!

I was most concerned the today when we left our little town and drove into the mountains. Hmmm... we used to hike here years ago until I figured out there was a horse farm across the highway! Mom apparently still has nightmares of scaling boulders to find all the traffic in both directions stopped as I went from car to car greeting all the dogs! For some reason, she doesn't like me to sociable like that. Pftt!

Anyway, she parked and left me in the car! She disappeared behind a tree and down a hill. Finally I could see her again and I noticed she was walking toward trees.... GREEN TREES! Green trees mean water! Suddenly, she turned on her heel and ran toward the car. She was laughing like a little kid and she was squeeling, "Creek! Let's go creeking!" I know what that means!!!!

She rolled up the car windows and got my leash and we both took off running! And just look what we found:

This is a few miles above where we hike but the water is flowing strong! We're hoping it comes down to our spot soon but, in the meantime, it's nice to have options!

Your mom really loves you. She will do whatever it takes to locate a nice creek for you to enjoy.
