Adventures with Sitka
A week ago, Mom, Dad, and our human brother, Wil took Nanuq, Trouble, and I to Shenandoah National Park. We had a great day. We stopped several times as we traveled up the mountain to hike around. We saw a few deer and did not harass them. Mom was very proud of us. She was most especially proud of me. Mom knows I am tempted beyond belief by those cute furry deer. She assures me they do not want to play with me, but I am not totally convinced.
Later in the day, Mom, Dad, and Wil decided to eat at Skyland Lodge. They had packed our food in the ice chest, but did not feed us before they entered the lodge. I was a little offended. After all, it was our dinner time, too! I discussed it with Trouble and Nanuq. They were willing to wait, but I was hungry! I climbed over the seats and found the ice chest in the front floor on the drivers side. I could barely raise the heavy lid, but I managed to get it up just enough to get my zip lock back of food out. Nanuq and Trouble pretended to look the other way. They did not want to be involved. I don't know why they were so concerned, I only got my food. I left theirs in the cooler. When my human family returned I was sitting in the front passenger seat with my head resting on the dash taking a little siesta. You should have seen the look on their faces when they realized I had fed myself dinner and shut the cooler back. I refused to reveal how I accomplished this task, after all, I can't give away all my furry secrets. Mom took me for a lovely walk while my furry brothers ate their dinner.
