Dog Scootering! and Elliot meets his Uncle Edge, and play progress!

Mom kept telling me all week that we were going to do something *REALLY FUN* this weekend.  I was totally excited to see what she had planned!  So on Saturday morning we got up early and went for a long drive.  I got to be the co-pilot and Dally and Elliot had to stay in the cage in the back.  HA!

We went all the way to Lake Elmore, VT to Peace Pups Dogsledding!  Ken took us to a little trail and first he talked to my mom awhile (*boring*) and then Mom wheeled around on these funny looking bikes without pedals for a bit.  THEN, she finally let me come out of the car!  I tried on a couple fancy blue harnesses and they decided one fit me and said we were ready to GO!  Mom got behind me on the funny bike, I gave her a look - "What are you doing on that weird thing, mom?!"  She said, "OK!  Go ArthurGOOD!  RUN!"

Well, she didn't have to tell me twice!!!  I took off down the road!  I looked back and she was after me on that scooter, but I was in the lead.  Wheeeeeeeeeeee!  I ran super fast!  Mom said she even got scared!  Then she said "Whoa!  Wait!" so I stopped.  We rested a bit and then we were off again!  I woulda gone forever but then she made me turn around.  I didn't really want to turn around but I did.  Then Ken took the camera and video'd us on the way back - here it is!

Then today, mom took me out again!  We just went a little while and she kept calling out funny words I did not know.  I think she's trying to tell me where to go or something.  She said I was super and she was going to hook up my sister Dally!  What?!  I didn't know about that.  But she did hook her up, and then GrandPaw went out on his bike ahead of us for a little while.  When we got to the end of the road we passed him and kept on going, and he stayed and talked to the people in the house, and kept the 2 big GSDs from chasing us (Dally was really glad about that!)

We FLEW done the trail up and over the RR tracks.  We stopped there for a little break.  Then we raced to the end of the field, went swimming!  Went all the way around the field, went swimming again, and then raced around a bit more and then back down the trail, one more swim and headed home.  SO MUCH FUN!  Here's the video from today!!

Mom says when Elliot Cool is bigger he can get hooked up too!  She will prolly let Caper and Lacy go together too - she thinks I'm too fast for Caper!  HA!

Oh yeah, speaking of Elliot Cool he got to meet his Uncle Edge yesterday, too!

Elliot's mum has the same parents as Edge!  Edge is 1.5 weeks older but Elliot is slightly bigger.  Edge's hair is a little longer and softer than Elliot's.  That's Edge's human mum, Ashley, with him.  She has border collies too!  My scooter lesson made mom late meeting them but luckily Ashley came back and so they still got to meet!  Mom thought that was really nice.  And of course, the wonderful Show Me The Biscuit was awesome for letting them use their place!
So, all in all a SUPER FUN weekend!  Hope yours was just as good!
ps - Mom was awful excited that Dally finally started playing with Elliot Cool!  THEN, I even played with him for minute!  HA!

Ok, I think that's all for now!
Really this time!


  1. Nice post Amy! I'm glad to see that your second run went so well and that you were able to take both Arthur and Dally out together. Looks like you have some great areas to scooter down there too! I'd say you are well on your way to having a awesome scooter team!
