Sunset Walks

While we normally show you our longer weekend hikes, we get to go on normal walks on week nights – a real challenge this time of year because it gets dark so early.  Here you can see the last of the sun setting on a hill to our East.  That is actually a part of the ranch that we talk about – this is exactly the opposite of the picture we have shown you of our house taken from up there.


But who cares about the mountains?  Let’s walk!

    It gets dark so early over here as well now. Walks are still fun where ever they are, we love the park best as we run around a lot but are happy also with our villiage walkies. 🙂

    Rusty looks like he is just trying to get the show on the road. Our Mom doesn’t like this time of the year for the same reason. We don’t get to go for our walk until all the little bipeds go home, and most of the time it is really close to dark. We got a good one today, though, no little bipeds and a nice day.

    Happy Thanksgiving, the OP Pack

    Rusty! That is some cute snootering of those pant-legs!
    Yes, we double up on walks early, as it gets DARK, and chilly… And, mom can’t see what my snooter is getting into!!! 🙂
    Have a wonderful week! Blessings to all of you.

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

    As long as you still get your walks that is the main thing!
    It is the same over here in Scotland – we are just about to head out now – it isn’t even 2.30 and already the light is fading!

The Queen and Decorum

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
