Walking Wednesday

We had a good hike on Sunday with all sorts of twists.  We encountered a train, a couple of really big dogs, and Rusty was in a particularly playful mood.  So, we bring you Walking Wednesday (filmed on Sunday):

    Oh, btw, we love your human RV!!! Can’t wait when our humans buy one for us…..Very jealous.

    Rusty is just like Elmo who likes to bug me too!!!! But Rusty is cute…..

    Wow, we’ve never been that close to a train. Very cool!


    PS. For the record, we are ALWAYS ready for some Rusty time!

    My HuMom loved this video! She could watch the heard antics all day. There are so many things to comment on. I thought the heard would take the train down when it passed. We still admire you s-rv. Noticed how happy every pup seemed when the s-rv was in view.

    Virginia Creeper trail is something we hope to do this fall. It’s roughly 6 hrs from our house. Thanks for the video preview. Now after seeing it, we want to see it, we want to see more.

    Trust me, he has very little to defend!

    Everypup in the Herd has a lot more patience with Rusty’s little quirk than I would have. But then I don’t even like pups to sniff “hello”

    Thanks for taking us on this lovely walk, although if I had been near Rusty, I might have bit his nose!

    Woo are such a joy!

    As fur the Big Dogs: me thinks their tails need a bit of horsemousse – they weren’t khwite floofy enough!

    PeeEssWoo: Mom says she ships stuff to Abingdon several times a week!

    What was up with Rusty? He sure didn’t seem to know where he wanted to be except behind some pup’s legs – LOL. When we would walk all three together, no one wants to be in the middle.

    What a beautiful spot for a stroll, and until I saw this, I did not realize what it was like to walk an entire pack of dogs. What a fun start to my Wednesday!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
