The Hills Are Alive...

Hurray! Mum took me to the hill yesterday for my birthday treat. My persuasive powers worked. Of course, it helped that the electricty went off at that time so mum couldn't use the computer. Thanks TNB! We went in the early evening to avoid the crowd. The beauty of going at 3.45 pm is we literally have the place to ourselves. It was so peaceful. Without the crowds, we could hear the hills come alive with the chirping of the birds, the sounds of the crickets and the rustling of the trees as the gentle breeze brushed against its leaves. My favourite part - I could roam off-leash at certain parts of the walk when we were alone. So I sniffed and smelled to my heart's content.

Sometimes I would run ahead of mum coz I was so excited. But, I always slowed down when she called (thanks to obedience training!).

We stopped by a bubbling stream for water break and took some time to appreciate the peaceful surroundings.

Towards the end of the walk, my hunting instincts kicked in full force as I picked up the scents of a group of monkeys. I was like a mad dog, barking and pulling as I tried to get at the monkeys, who were taunting me from the top of the trees. Score- Monkeys-1; Kess-0. I was exhausted after my chasing spree and had to take a long break to recover.

Did I have fun? You bet! If only everyday was my birthday... My next task is to persuade dad to take me into the jungle trails tomorrow since it'a public holiday. Will keep you posted :-)
