nightly walk

About 7 PM, I get to go on my nightly walk. We walk on the path in the golf course behind my house because by that time, the golfers are gone.
If we go too early, I might get hit by a white flying ball, and that would be bad.
It usually takes half an hour to make the big loop, but here is where we start.
This is our first stop on hot days because I can rest in the shade. You can tell it's hot because my head is drooping like a wilted flower.
Sometimes I find bugs to eat at this rest stop. Protein helps keep my energy level up for these stenuous walks.
And when the golfers aren't looking, I can sneak a cool, refreshing drink of water.
It tastes mighty good on a hot day.
And then I'm ready to go again! Last night the Cubs were playing so I didn't get to take a long walk; instead, I had to take a shortcut. That means we make the loop shorter by walking on the sidewalk back to my house instead of walking on the golf course.
The best thing about the shortcut is that I can check my peemail on the way home. I love summer and walkies!

G'day Petra
It does look quite warm on your walk. It's nice when it's still light at 7pm. We go on our walk around 7pm too but at the moment it gets dark around 5.30.

That looks like a great walk, but stay away from those flying white balls.

Golf courses are so much fun. Our Pop said he used to cross county ski and sled ride at one near his house growing up. We have no idea what he's talking about but he says it was awesome. Anywho, enjoy your evening walkies!
