The World According to Bella | "Homesick"

The good news... nothing bad has happened to me so far on this trip. I've been lucky and have managed to dodge rattlesnakes, scorpions, and javelinas so far but it was a near miss when two coyotes ran in front of Mr. C and I a half a block away. Of course I got real excited. Lucky for Mr. C that he had a tight grip on my leash as I was ready for a chase. The coyotes paid no attention to me.

Not one, not two but three field trips I've been on in 8 days. Finally things are looking up. Just when I thought it seemed like forever being what I think is under house arrest. I only get out for walks on a leash and sunning out on the patio. I miss the lake and running free.

Hiking in Madera Canyon was a real workout, especially for my paws.  

The path started out good but got smaller and smaller with lots of rocks. Going uphill I was panting hoping Mr. C would stop soon. Maybe I am out of shape.

I was glad when we stopped at a stream. This workout made me real thirsty. I did look back to make sure Mrs. S wasn't going to slip. We had to jump the rocks to get to the other side. She made it and didn't get her shoes too wet.

What seemed like hours later we finally stopped. I was glad they remembered to bring my portable water dish and a bottle of water. Hiking uphill is just plain work!

I only got a day's rest when we went on another hike to look at some rocks that had some pictures on them, but they were so high up we could hardly see them. And the sign said No Climbing on the Rocks. Lucky Mrs. S could zoom in for a photo.

There was an easy path called The Way that went around in a circle. Lots of cactuses but I didn't understand why there were so many crosses with signs until Mrs. S said they were called Stations of the Cross.

It was not too hot out that day so I didn't work up much of thirst.

Look how big these cactuses are compared to us.

Mr. C and Mrs. S wanted to go on a road trip to some towns far away to check out what they called wineries. I got to go because they were going to be gone for many hours. Maybe they were worried I'd miss my dinner and a few of my walks. It was kinda a boring ride with not much to see along the way just mountains, desert, cattle and horses.

I did like that a few of the places they stopped at to check out wines were dog friendly.

One place I got to sit out on the patio, enjoy the view with a bowl of water and a doggie treat.

I've heard about all the snow back home. I miss playing in it, climbing the snowbanks and taking walks with Mr. C.

And I miss Sadie and Luna's visits even though they always want to play with my orange ball.

Maybe the next month will go by fast.

Love, Bella
