Qannik – Sometimes you need to focus on getting down the trail
Other times you should take the time to smell the, uh, trees
Our best guess? The horses that use this trail brush up against these branches.

Weekly thoughts from our Hu-Dad with the latest updates on his writing projects, the books he's reading, and a gratuitous dog photo of us.
A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
We Had A Little Snow
Our winter may have been mild so far, but, like much of the east coast, we had a little snow this week. And so we had a little fun.
I’d expect that more out of Rusty. Mostly because I’d expect that out of my Zimmie.
Smells like My Friend Flicka …
Perhaps a Great Dane walked the trail and left a message…
Yep, lead your sniffer lead the way..
Yepper that is what pups are best at.. Sniffering… hehe

Snifferoonies never go astray
You just never know who could have left some mail for Qannik there. Do you have pandas? They leave messages up that high.
As I said in my blog today, I love to sniff pickup Truck tires! My Mom gets all upset because she wants to move along,but its almost always a wonderful smell. I never go after automobile tires, just pickups, so I think maybe I was a country dog at one time. I try to pull my Mom over to sniff the tires, but she says NO! I just don’t get it, who wouldn’t want that great smell?
Nothing wrong with sniffing the trees. 🙂
I can’t wait to see what Juno has planned!
Sniffing? That’s what I love to do! Glad you guys take time to stop and sniff too!
Nothing as satisfying as a good ‘sniff’!
love and woofs
Good sniffing there, Qannik. While we were walking the other day, Thunder walked almost a whole block with his nose pointed straight up watching the birds on the overhead lines – too bad the Momster didn’t have her flashy box.
Woos, the OP Pack
Did somebody say “horses”? I love those beautiful creatures. I visit a barn frequently and sometimes I even go riding. I can even ride bareback! I love hiking too. Mama hates to walk us in the street, because one time my sissy, Linguini, was attacked by two dogs, so we mostly go on hikes, since we live on a mountain. Looks like you enjoyed your hike, Qannik 🙂
Our noses know!
PeeEssWoo: RutRoh – JBJ has thrown down the one of her poodle leg gauntlets!
One of the things that I love about hiking with dogs is that their noses pick up on things that we can’t possibly perceive. It often leads me to investigate to find a visual clue… Before my back problems stopped me, I did wilderness search and rescue with my dog. It was the most amazing experience to see her pick up on a lost person’s scent almost a mile away (if the wind was right). My only job was to learn to ‘read’ her so that I’d know that she was onto something and didn’t lead her astray.
Love the hike photos. Glad that the herd is doing well!
yes, but does he have any leaves attached to his jodhpurs? Enquiring sibes want to know!
PeeEssWoo: don’t think you all laughing at Juno’s shaving job has gone unnoticed. She is plotting her revenge. It will be sweet. It will be served as sibes serve it best: COLD! boooowhahahahahaha! 😉
