Hello..it’s me..the blogging Border Collie. A few weeks ago we were gone all day long. Far Side has not told you about the best part of that trip. So I guess it is up to me..
Far Side told me to jump up, so I did..then I walked on the rock ledge..perhaps I should do agility. Far Guy has his jacket over his head because it was windy..very windy and cool with the wind coming off the water.
Leech Lake even has some wave action..
How about some Chance action? I can’t believe it, I played in the water all by myself..no matter how many times I invited Far Guy to play by barking at him, he kept hollering at me “ Chance I am not coming to play in that water..it is freezing.” Far Side finally gave up and grabbed a really long stick and splashed some water for me..she usually doesn’t mind wading in the water at least up to her knees..she looked pretty stupid leaning way out over the water. I kept hoping she would fall in..then we could have stayed and played all day long.
I had a blast!
Far Side has been by here before, but only at night..the last time we were by here she had to take a flashlight out of the car to read the marker. It says:
Sugar Point Battle
When a Federal Marshall with 100 troops of the 3rd Infantry tried to arrest the Chippewa Chief Bugonaygeshig at Sugar Point opposite here on the North East shore of the lake a sharp fight occurred October 5, 1898 the whites lost 7 killed and 10 wounded and the arrest was never accomplished
It sounds like Chief Old Bug was a tad upset about his tribe members being picked on by local officials. Members of the Tribe were being arrested and then transported way out of the area for trial. Then the Lumber Companies were coming in and not paying the Indians what their trees were worth. This was considered the last Indian uprising in the United States. I betcha never knew that ?
Far Side let me blog today because she needs to do real important stuff like laundry and raking leaves into the woods and out of her garage:)
