Charles Towne Landing

Yesterday, we visited Charles Towne Landing State Park in Charleston, SC.

Our guides were our Charleston pals Kody

and Nia (oh - and their humans David and Linda).

When you visit historic sites, you should always examine everything carefully and learn how life was different.

Kiska - Hey, this dog smells really funny.

Rusty - Never mess with the spanish moss in these trees.

Kiska - Hey, I found a souvenir to bring home!

So many trees, so little time.

Natasha - Look, Q-Tip, I may have been sick, but you bump into me one more time . . .

We may not be sea dogs, but we are thinking this ship is missing some important parts.

Kiska - Hey, Hu-dad, how about this one? Can I have this one?

Hmmmmm - this one could be even more fun.

Oh my - where is the air conditioning?

All in all, we had a great time. Thank you to our Charleston hosts!

    Charleston is a very historic place with lot’s to see. The Duchess lived there for a few years so it was fun for her to see your travels!

    I love the pictures!

    I’m with Kiska – you should bring home a cannon. Maybe just a small one.

    Looks like you got to see a lot of cool things. πŸ™‚

    That looks like a gorgeous park to explore and hang out in for a few hours. Glad you had such a wonderful time!

    What a nice visit! I have never heard of that place but it sure does look nice! It’s extra nice because you can bring your dogs!!

    The Herd with a cannon? Ooohhh, I like it! Just hook it up to the back of the car and take it home!! We could use that for the great squirrel war! πŸ™‚

  16. Pamela on December 28, 2010 at 10:51 am

    I’m glad you didn’t let Natasha get a souvenir cannon. Just think of how queenlike she could be then!

  17. Sam on December 28, 2010 at 9:58 am

    What a nice little trip – though I do see that it means that you had to miss the snow falling at your house. Wild storm, that was!

  18. Houndstooth on December 28, 2010 at 9:58 am

    We’d like to mention that we still have tons of snow here and would be more than happy to trade places with The Herd. That looks like the best outing — color us green with envy!

    Presents every morning is a good start!

    I thought you already had a guillotine- miss evil herself. Ha.

    Very funny! And, uncharacteristically, Kiska was the main jokester in Charleston. I bet that if the Herd works really hard, they can water all those trees!

    It looks as if you totally avoided the snow! Poor Sibes but happy humans…

  21. Stumpy and cyndi on December 28, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Kiska, you have your eye on some serious anti squirrel artillery!

    Always fun to have a vacation where the humans and the pups get to share a good time with friends.

    Hi Y’all,

    Catchin’ up on what y’all have been up to lately.

    We too are down here on the coast, romping around. That’s something we’d not be able to do much of in the mountains since at our house there, my Human Uncles have assured me, is hidden under 20 inches or more of snow. We’ll have to wait a bit before going back since the neighbor’s tractor is too small to clear our road for us.

    See y’all around!

    Wow! So many smells and sounds! Was there any wildlife??

  26. priscilla on December 28, 2010 at 2:06 am

    I wonder whether some of you left your historical marks at the historical park?!

  27. Terri Jacobson on December 28, 2010 at 1:16 am

    Looks like you guys had a grand visit today. I can only imagine what the whole herd must look like on tour. :o)))

  28. Kari on December 28, 2010 at 1:07 am

    You meet so many dogs everywhere you go!

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window. Β 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.
