This morning, we started off in the dark because The People In Charge Of These Things haven't turned the clock back yet.
I don't know whether they realise how creepy it is for us dogs to walk in the dark.
"Oh my god, Typist! Is that one of The Dog-Hunting C.a.t.s Of Balmain?"
Luckily, we managed to get safely to Mort Bay Park.
I was very relieved.
My Typist took more shots in the dark. I hope you can see them okay. Even if they aren't very clear, [she says] they are quite a.t.m.o.s.p.h.e.r.i.c.Baxter and Pearl were already at the little beach. They are such earlybirds.
You can see Pearl's butt here.
Baxter checked the water out for us.
Baxter has an extra-long leash. Can you see it?
There was too much rubbish in the water for a swim [though Pearl's human was very good and tried to clean it up for us].Since no one wanted to get into the scummy water, we walked on some more.
I jumped up this wall!
I gave My Typist such a fright, her hand shook while she was taking this picture.
Finally we got to The Bouncy Bridge!
This is one of my favourite places in Mort Bay Park. When the ferry goes by, the whole thing creaks and bounces! Some dogs are scared of it but I'm not.
I don't know why so many pictures in this post are blurry. My Typist insists this one's bad because the ferry was going by, and not because of her lack of skills.
I'd better not say anything since she'll be taking care of me while My Cushion is sick.
Another reason I like The Bouncy Bridge is because fishermen leave yummy dried squid there.
After that, we went across the road to Ballast Point Park. If you've seen the video, you'll know where that is in relation to The Bouncy Bridge.
It was nice and quiet there.
A PoliceHuman stopped us!
"You can't go any further. You'll have to turn around." she said. "There's an investigation going on up top."
Being a sticky beak, My Typist had to ask what it was about. The PoliceHuman told her someone had found a body in the park.
I'm sorry I don't know what that means, but I think it may be A Very Bad Thing and something worse than a possum.
So we turned around and started walking back.
I thought my walk was over when! out of the corner of my eye! I spotted breakfast approaching!
There was not a moment to waste! I quickly went into my hunting mode. I knew I had to remain inconspicious so as not to scare the prey away. Luckily, there was a wall and some long grass handy.
Everything was going so well when suddenly!3 littledogs came running up. They scared the prey away.
Then they jumped on me!
Larry may have escaped my jaws of death today but he'd better watch out.
Call me paranoid, but I think littledogs gang up on bigdogs like me all the time and, may I say, that is not nice.
The usual suspects - Darcy and Aggie.
"I got my eye on you, littledogs."
Our activities must have aroused the suspicions of The PoliceHuman. She followed us out of the park.
No one wanted to leave the scene of the crime.
