What has 4 wheels and moves fast? Not this chick...unless in my Honda!!

Another of our mini-fun times from the weekend before last, this is the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark

Opened in June 2008 and is around 40,000 sq. ft.  and it's free! Helmets are required but not padding...are they crazy or what? Pad me up!!! Well, not to worry as this chick won't be skateboarding :). Max was more interested in what was there nearby to pee on :) 
Oh, I sooo could have done that! (Not!)


Yep, it's just outside of downtown. It's very clean and well maintained.

Across the street and down some stairs is the Buffalo Bayou Walk - North Trail, also where you can launch a canoe (but I'd be scared of that nasty water and tipping over!)

I wished I had a video of this little pup who came running - almost flying over to see Max like Max was a long lost friend!


What's next Ma...what's next?!

Come on pokey Brother...let's get this party started already!!!
(Ok, so you can't tell from the photos but it was like a tra-zillion degrees outside so we had to take hydration breaks in the car with the a/c running so Max wouldn't overheat!)
With that we'll call it and end for today's mini-adventure in the life of Max :) ... until next time...

Have a beautiful Friday!!! Whoo Hoo!! It's the WEEKEND at last!
It's also time for K9 Kamp put on by the awesome Kol's Notes and Peggy's Pet Place so since the above pix were from the weekend before last, Ma didn't wanna cheat so we got up early and walked about the subdivision but without the camera...smart Ma! We don't think we'll do that again as some pups are roaming without leashes and seem a bit aggressive...well, watching Dad all weekend so we'll have to get creative since we can't leave the casa :)

  6. That looks like an amazing park, I almost expected to see you whizzing by on a skateboard! Your mom is great to take you out on fun walks and to be sure you keep cool too. Those look like a lot of stairs for your little legs, Max!

  11. Have you looked at the cool collars that are available for doggies - could help little Max with the heat.

    1. Yes buy the high humidity makes it rather ineffective unfortunately so we just have to be cautious in the next few months and do shorter but more frequent walks

  12. Hey Max, thanks for joining our Blog Hop! Looks like a fun adventure - I think you should have tried that skateboarding - you've got a good low center of gravity - that should help!

    1. Ha! Thanks for having k9 Kamp! We will just have to get more creative with the heat factor ;)

  13. Oh this rolling cutting boards are looking scary to me. Better I walk on my feet. Your new friend is absolutely cute - maybe he is related with Ernie, Franky or the three Doxies?

    1. Ya never know - sure was great how he broke away from his owners in the most friendly manner and was just flying to say hello to Max! His owners were about ready to call him back back but I waved that it was ok and Max was friendly too as they shouted that too ;)

  14. I never know if those kids are very brave or totally insane! I would also love to paddle down the river in a canoe but would probably drown from panicing if I tipped over, ha!

    1. Well come on over! Yep, I have a stripped down version of a Civic, meaning A/c, Automatic tran., and radio - no Power locks etc but I love my civic!!!

  17. Have a great weekend!
    I'd be scared to fall on that water or for any of that water to touch me too.
    But the park looks very nice, nicer than any we have in here.

  18. Houston really looks like a great city! Shane about the heat!

    I couldn't take Jimmy anywhere near a skateboard park. He goes absolutely batsh!t crazy over those. Skateboards trigger his herding instinct something fierce!

    1. Wow you would think it might be scary but then again Max us typically scared if a lot but that didnt bother him either!

    1. Ha, no I want to keep Ma in one piece! She can barely walk much less skateboard! Remember this is the woman missing 3 knuckles on her right hand due to falling over the throw rug in her room and having her fist bash into the metal bed frame full force!

  23. Ooo, running steps. That's hard work!

    What are you going to do for Max's exercise when it gets too hot? We are lucky with Rita to be able to take her to the bay where she can keep cool. She hates super hot weather!

    1. Not sure but probably have to do park walks once the sun goes down as before work is impossible since I have to be at work at 6:30...any ideas?

  24. Looks like a fab place to go for a walk. I have said this before but orange looks marvellous on you- where did you get that harness?

  25. What a great spot to go for a walk! It's got so much ging on. I love it! I'm so glad you are joining us for kamp - it's going to be great!

  26. Nice skate park, but that canoe looks like it would be a fun way to spend the afternoon. Especially if it's really hot. Going down the river in a canoe or on inner tubes is pretty big around my neck of the woods in the summer.

  27. The skate park looks pretty cool. I don't do skateboarding either lol... Still looks like it would be fun to watch though.

  28. What a great place! Max has a new friend. I love it when doggies get so excited to see each other -- their little tails are wagging 100 miles per hour. Precious! :-)
