Night Walk

Woohoo! I went for 3 walks yesterday - Morning, evening and night. Usually, I only get the morning and evening walks. But yesterday, dad came home just before 7pm (which is rare) and decided to go for a night stroll up the hill with mum & me. I shared in an earlier post on my birthday walk at the very same hill, but that was during the day.


At night, the atmosphere is different. Even though the path is lit, there is a mystical feel in the air. If you have an active imagination, it is not too difficult to twist the dark shadows cast on the ground and the amplified night sounds into a horror movie. Since I don't possess an active imagination, I was happily doing my own thing - which is sniffing and smelling. Plus, I was with my humans. They'll protect me...eer...I mean, I'll protect them!

Even the scents and sounds are different at night. The flowers that bloom at night fills the air with its sweet aroma. The night insects were out in full force and their orchestra of chirping was almost deafening. The monkeys were safely up on the trees and sounded their deep alarm when we passed by. Oh, such joy...

We got home at 8pm (which is even earlier than when dad sometimes gets home from work!), just in time for dinner. Unfortunately, my humans said I had to rest first coz I was still panting from the walk. So, I had to wait for them to finish their dinner and wash up before I could eat. And because I had lots of exercise that day, I had a special treat of pork bone and rice (I am an Asian dog, after all), on top of my usual Innova kibble. Woohoo!

Needless to say, I slept like a log last night and dreamt sweet doggie dreams ...ZZZ...ZZZ...ZZZ


P.S. What time are you coming home tonight, dad? Can we do it again today?

Three walks sounds good to us. However Dixie is actually very nervous walking in the dark. Your bed looks so lovely and comfy.

J&D, I love the walks and I love my bed too :-) Hey Dixie, hope you overcome the nervousness about the dark. The hill trail has street lights so it wasn't as scary...

Thanks for signing my guest book.
