A "Parker Adventure"
We have the pleasure of sitting our grand dog "Parker" for a few weeks. It is such a joy just watching him be a dog. One of his favorite things is going for a long woodsy walk and taking a swim in the lake after to cool off. One such walk last week to a familiar place we let Parker lead the way. He soon picked up the scent of some critter and began to look for it in those places where dogs love to go. As you can see the greens were high and thick and Parker's visibility was almost blocked.
I soon followed him and he suddenly stopped. At this point I was sure I was going to see a deer pop up, but there was nothing. Parker took some more steps and stopped again, and that's when I saw a tiny stream. I have fished a stream in the area but have never seen this little one that apparently feeds the stream I fish.
Glancing into the stream I noticed several brook trout lying over a spring seep.
Well brook trout may be good for you but it's not my bag, so Parker say's. And off he went to check out something else. We went swimming, Parker that is and we got soaked from the shake off.
After such a workout we were very hungry, and a good lunch was to be had.
We enjoyed a fried venison sandwich, with peppers and onions. I had the sandwich, Parker requested only the venison.
