My first camping trip (Video)

Last week I went on my first camping trip, to Lake Del Valle in Livermore, California. The weather could not have been more beautiful and I had a great time!
Getting ready to jump in after my ball - I LOVE swimming!
Humans forgot our balls one day, so we fetched sticks.
My foster brother Guinness and I went swimming in the lake everyday. We loved playing fetch in the water, wrestling with each other, and exploring the great outdoors!
Listening to the sounds of nature in the morning light outside our tent.
A tired, muddy, and very happy Guinness.
Let me fetch some more...in water

Cute like an OTTER

Hi! Chilly here, long time no blog, what can I say, been too busy with all the responsibilities that comes with being the popular pooch that I am.
Last Friday Aug. 13, I went with Jennifer to the East Bay SPCA. She was invited to speak to 20 summer camp participants about her business Sirius Republic. As usual I was the highlight of the program. I had a great time meeting new friends and showing off my tricks for treats.
There I am in the middle being surrounded by my fans :D
For fun, I went swimming at my friend Grumpy's house. I never swam before but now it's one of my favorite things to do!
Fetching and swimming - at the same time, oh boy, it doesn't get better than this!
I also attended several dog rescue events in the past month, helping to raise money for saving homeless dogs. I made many new friends who are also my fans at the Bay to Barkers benefiting Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society and Petapalooza event at Autobody Fine Art benefiting several rescue groups.
