Overlook sign

Rusty reads Cheoah one of the many overlook signs from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

See - here she pretends to be hanging her head out the Jeep window.


I wonder why Rusty asked me to stand in front of this sign?


I just don't understand what it means.


Dip? Hey! Wait a minute.

    Kiska, Rusty, and Qannik act like they’re professional models! Dog models, I mean.

    Such a beautiful place to go for a little hike. And educational as well, it seems. LOL

    How fun!!! Qannik, don’t let them fool you – we think it means there might be some ice cream ahead – you know as in double dips:)

    Bunny would love to have that first sign! Q, I think you need to tape a kick me sign to Rusty’s tail when he isn’t looking. That just isn’t right!

    Isn’t the Blue Ridge Parkway beautiful? We went to Shenandoah when we evacuated out of Hampton to Harrisonburg for the hurricane last year and took the dogs with us. It was pretty!

    Don’t worry Qannik. My dad does stuff like that to me all the time.

    Just want to give a shout out that you guys are so cute!

    I’m not much of a reader but I am quite sure it means
    “Good Dog”!
