A Weekend in Asti - Part Two

In my last blog, I told you all about the first day of my weekend visit to Paco, Milo and Maya’s place. Well, we spent the night sleeping cosily and then woke up on Sunday morning to a wonderful sight... had been snowing and the garden was beckoning for us to go out and play. Check out our frolics below:

Here we all are trying to decide what our first game should be...

...Unfortunately Paco and Milo were easily distracted by a car outside.

By the time Milo came up, I was on the way back down the hill.

Anyway, we soon got our act together and went off adventuring in the snow.

While the four of us were out, I couldn’t help noticing how much Maya was paying attention to me. Don’t believe me? Well, check out the photos below:

At first I didn’t notice anything...

...then I spotted her staring at me.

After a while, her eyes were following my every move.

Even from the top of the hill....

Maya checking out my butt (again!).

Once she got sick of following me with her eyes, she started to follow me for real. She’s my ‘little shadow’!

She even followed me into this little hideout.

Finally, Maya managed to summon up the courage to ask me the question on her mind...

...she whispered it gently in my ear.

...Of course I said “YES!”

We started with a friendly kiss...

...and then we were off!

Maya quickly got on top.

I tried to ‘snap’ back...

...but then Maya launched herself at me. “Eeee-YAH!”

Man, she was fast!

I gave her my ‘fiercest face’. “AHHHHHHH!”

But Maya just responded by biting my ear!

Finally, I knew I had no chance of winning once Maya put on her ‘Matrix’ hover:

After all the ‘gung fu’ shenanigans, we headed back into the house for a well-earned rest.

Maya and me in bed – exhausted! (I apologise for the quality of this photo).

Not only were we tired, we were also hungry. However, Simona soon saw to it that we were all well fed.

Maya and me eating our food...

...and here’s Paco and me having a meal together.

Finally, we all gathered around Dad for a ‘farewell story’.

All too soon it was getting late and we had to set-off for home. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my stay with Maya and the boys (and their humans). I can’t wait to meet up with them all again.

I love your Golden Retriever Pictures! Love to see them enjoy themselves in snow.

By the way, I own a site that has a page about Golden Retriever (Golden Retriever Puppy Training and Pictures). You may submit your dog photo and write a story at the bottom of the page. Then, I will publish your story there. I believe that other Golden's Owners love to hear from you. ;-)
