Time To Walk Off That Stuffing!!

Happy Friday and Saturday Everyone!!

So, to answer a couple of your questions: my new circus fort is from Ikea and, yes, you are all invited to bring your favorite treat and toy and come over and play in it!! :-D

Domeek and I decided that we needed to do a little exercise to walk off some of that stuffing and turkey that we devoured on Christmas and Boxing Day! So, yesterday, we trotted off to our favorite hiking trail to do a whole lot of sniffing and peeing (me, not Domeek!! ;-P)!!!

Can't you just sniff all those amazing smells??? It was pretty darn good weather too...lots of sun, but still cold!! :-D

There were tons of birds hanging out in the water and the shore, including my fellow geese, cranes, and sparrows!

We got there just as the sun was setting, so the light was pretty beautiful!

I decided to do a little paw printing on this one rock!! ;-) Domeek wasn't quick enough with the camera, so she couldn't capture me jumping all over it!

As you can see, the place was crazy muddy, I even had to forge a couple of mud rivers...unfortunately that meant that as soon as I got home, Domeek gave me a bath! Poo!

Hm, a couple of boring nature pictures...yeah, yeah...the sun was setting and we had pink mountains...moving on!!

But what you really should have seen, well...smelt, were all the incredible scents wafting in the air! The place used to be the city dump, years ago, so there's always this...hm, interesting smell...add to this the salt flats, tons of wild animals, and a bunch of pups and humans hiking through...and you got yourself a stimulating overload of smells!!

And I love it!!!

I hope that you all had a wonderful day today!! :-D

  1. Goose brother I would love to come walk with you there. It looks wonderful. And I am always up for a romp in some mud, it's good for the furs, keeps them all soft and such. You have a GREAT weekend buddy.

  14. I love your circus tent! I think I would need one that's human sized, but I'll try to squeeze into it, or perhaps just fit my head in.

    Enjoy your frolics!
