Hey there, Jackson here! I just wanted to check in here on my mom's blog to make sure you didn't forget about me. After all, it has been a few months since my mom wrote about me and my new bed - which I love by the way. It's super comfy and my mom says the fabric is pretty snazzy, but I don't really care much about that as long as I can dig in it to make it comfortable for napping.
In fact, sometimes I like to sleep under it. I'm good at hiding.
Aaannyway...what I really wanted to do was come by and tell you a little about my summer adventures so far. It's been great. My mom said I could borrow some of her iPhone and Instagram photos so you can see me in action.
As usual, we've been taking lots of walks when my mom gets home from work. We go on all kinds of adventures - sometimes we walk in the neighborhood, sometimes to the park and sometimes we even get to go into the woods and hunt deer. One of these days I'm going to catch one. If only my mom would let me off that annoying leash contraption, I could use my lightning fast speed and stealthiness to sneak up on one and get it. Look at how sneaky I am in this video. The deer didn't even know I was coming...
Almost got one that time. (Oh, and my mom said to ignore her silly commentary in the video. She's embarrassed about it.)
One of the other things we do sometimes is go to my favorite store. Every time we walk by I look longingly through the window hoping that maybe, just maybe, we'll go in and somebody will give me a treat. They have these amazing sausage things there. Yum.
Other times, if I'm really lucky, we go down to the creek so I can cool off on extra hot days (all that hair makes me really hot).
Speaking of water, my favorite adventure so far has been to the river house. It. is. the. best. I get to run around there without that stinkin' leash and explore everything. While we were there last time, we went to this beach and I dug this awesome hole. I'm not sure what I was looking for, but I just knew I had to keep digging.
Didn't I do a good job?
When we go out on the boat there, my parents make me wear a life jacket. I had a minor incident last summer involving me jumping off the boat after some dolphins in the middle of the deep water (I just had to try and get 'em. They got away so fast though!), so now I have to wear this thing all the time. It's not so bad though, I guess. The blue and yellow do look pretty nice on at least.
All this adventuring sure makes me tired though and I'm always looking for the most comfortable place to nap. My mom found me on the couch pillows one time when she was washing the slipcovers. She wasn't real happy...but can you blame me? Look how fluffy that pillow is.
When I'm really sleepy, sometimes my dad lets me cuddle with him. Nothin' better than that.
Don't be deceived by that docile look though - I'm totally a fierce animal. See?
So that's my summer in a nutshell so far. What have you been up to? Dug any good holes lately?
