After the fun boat races we headed back to Kansas to meet up with my cool cousins, a Big Labrador named "Chance" and two Schnauzers named "Heidi" and "Kylie" I pretty much stayed away from Chance, he thought I looked like a stuffie and I was not in the mood to swing around. Kylie is the senior of the group and she didn't really like to be bothered with me. Heidi was my favorite, we played bitey face and chased each other the whole time. I loved that girl. After a day to relax, we all headed down to Oklahoma to a lake house where we stayed a couple of days. It was relaxing for the humans, boating and swimming were very much included. This is where Mom decided I needed to have a swim experience and I must say, I can swim like a olympic star. I much prefered to stay on the boat though, sun tanning is my cup of tea. A few days of play and it was time to head home. I really liked my adventures this summer and have had even more since we got home. Until next time,
Hey Heidi, are we almost there?
This is my cousin Heidi...I just love this girl
She really LOVES to go swimming.
Here is Chance...water is his paradise...dad kept throwing sticks and Chance would swim to get them.
My most favorite spot when the boat was anchored and the humans decided to play in the water. Mom said I look a little "Stocky" in this picture...that better not mean I don't get as many snacks :(
Look at me go!!!! I was very focused on getting back to the shore and back to sunning.
Chance and Heidi loved the water, Kylie and I liked the dry boat much better.
I had a very tiring day, staying away from the water and watching Mom and Dad act like kids.

Mom deleted the pitapata thing from the design your blog place but the stupid box is still there. Mom is pulling her hair out!!!! Any advice will be welcome.
More vacation pictures. After camping, we headed east to Kansas to take home our cousin who lives in Wellington, way down in the southeast corner and to meet another of my human sisters and her family at the fun boat races in Garnett up in the northeast section of Kansas. We did alot of driving. I am so glad I had my carseat bed, I took tons of shortcuts (sleeping) during that windshield time. Yay!! finally we got to the place where my best bud Harley was waiting for me. I met him when I was a puppy and he was bigger than me...now I am bigger than him BOL. We had tons of fun running around and messing in the water. I mostly got to be off my leash and just be a country dog. It was GREAT! We were there 3 days and I had a ball. Next we will be heading back to Wellington to meet up with dads sister and then to a lake in Oklahoma, where I did my first real swimming and played with my Labrador and Schnauzer friends.
Until Next Time.
This is the spot mom, there is Richards Trailer
Richard is my Illinois sisters husband, he races these FAST boats as a hobby He wins alot and even gets money....course my sissy says they spend it all on new boat parts and getting to the races so it is a break even. Those little boats are spensive.
Meet Harley...he is why my mom wanted a little chihuahua and found me! He belongs to my Illinois Sister.
We did alot of sitting and visiting under an easy up...it was real hot. Mom doesn't have her hat on...rare moment. That girl is Madison, moms oldest Illinois granddaughter. she was in charge of taking lots of pictures.
Madison and Mackenzie kept going in the lake to wade and Me and Harley just followed them right in.
Lots of practicing

My mom and dad like to camp. We go a couple of times every summer and I sort of like it. I was just getting over being a little sick this time so my energy level was a bit down. No mad puppy runs down the dusty road or into the trees. Thats OK, I enjoyed laying on someones lap and getting good belly rubs. We had the Kansas cousin, my human sissy and her 2 boys camping with us and we had a campfire and s'mores. I did get a taste of the marshmellows. Next time onward to a little town in Kansas named Garnett. We watched hydroboat racing and saw moms Illinois grandkids. I also had a reunion with "Harley" my spunky Chihuahua cousin Until next time,
Here I am surveying the camp site. Mom put a red blankie by our tent for me to lay on but I wanted to check out everything first.
I brought my bed from home...I was really very comfortable. Mom and Dad had a futon with a sleeping bag. In the middle of the night I had to go outside and pee....that was an adventure in itself. At home I just pop outside and go. At camping, I barked so mom had to wake up, find my harness, and take me outside in the pitch black. It was so starry.
It is so important to stay hydrated in the heat of the day. Mom was always putting a water bowl under my nose. Floating ice cubes....very refreshing
This is early morning, even though it is hot in the day, it is cold in the morning, I had to wear my fleece until the sun warmed stuff up. Everyone was having coffee and all I got was water again, at least it was in a camping cup.
My sissy and cousin washing their hair with the river water...bol. Mom said dirty camping hair is why hats were made. No way was she going to pour river water on her head!
Sitting in a chair is always a good thing. I can keep my eye on things.
We went on a little walk and I found a new friend...all the kids around like me cause I am so small.
I liked relaxing by the river.
This is the view from our camp site.

A big welcoming banner, the river was straight down the street
The offical Subaru car...they were a big sponser.
Here we were waiting outside the carnival for my sissy and cousin to come out. No Dogs were allowed, not even a toteable like me. Dad said Rules are Rules. It was OK though, mom didn't want to go on rides and the food was close so dad could go get treats for us.
These were the sweetest little girls EVER...small town parades, so cool
I liked sitting in the shade, it was starting to get pretty warm outside.
Here is a launching area on the river...look at all those kayaks!
Mom let me go down to the river and get my feet wet but the water was very cold, not like the water at home. You can tell I wanted to get out fast.
