All the rain we've been having here lately has made it pretty hard to have adventures. Because even when the rain stops falling from the sky, most of the places we hike get sooo crazy muddy, it's kinda hard to walk.
Me and Dutch have been driving my human a little nuts with all our extra energy, so she tried to fix the problem by finding us a new, not-so-muddy place to hike. Google helped her find a really cool place on the cow side of the grey bridge called Pt Pinole.
I love new places and was glad the mud situation gave us an excuse to check it out. That is until we got there and I saw the sign about the electric fence. The HIGH VOLTAGE electric fence.
Huh?? I was kinda freaked out about the fence until my human explained it's not there to zap me - it's there to contain the goats. Goats? Yes, goats. They were in the park to eat weeds. Pretty cool, huh?
I'd never met a goat before and thought they might be fun to chase. Uhm, I mean play with. And I figured if it was safe for goats, then it was probably safe for deer ears. I've been kinda paranoid about getting accidentally shot and reaaally hate wearing that stupid santa hat, so this was a huge relief. Huge.
So when Dutch was off chasing his invisible squirrels, I hunted for goats. Since I'd never seen a goat, I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for but figured I'd know a goat when I saw it.
Well. I was wrong. I got all excited when I saw this guy standing underneath the tree. Especially since he was tied to the tree, making it much easier to win a game of chase-the-goat.
Bad idea. Because it turns out the goat was really a horse and humans don't think it's cool for dogs to chase horses. Especially horses who are tied to trees. My human yelled at me, the people who belonged to the horse yelled at me. Even the horse yelled at me. The only one who didn't yell at me was Dutch, and that's only because he's afraid of everything and was hiding behind a tree.
I never did find the goats. But I didn't find the high voltage electric fence or get shot either, so I guess I should be happy.
