Just a walk in the park

Hello, it is me, the one, the only and the cutest ever Denny!!!! Mommy decided this morning it might be a good idea for us to go on a long walk and tire me out as she says cousin Jackson is coming this very afternoon - a week early !!!! I must admit I am not sure if I remember him or if I will even like him anymore - and then there is the whole issue of his Mom too. She is also coming this afternoon - that is so scary, two NEW things to cope with - I may end up have a puppy melt down just from the stress of it all!

Anyway - back to our walk. It was so nice and cold, only 40 degrees and just perfect for us furry types. Mommy wasn't to sure about taking Weilly as he has started limping again. She rang the vets but the soonest we can see Dr W. is Tuesday. She did speak to him though and he said it would be okay to give him some pain medicine as he thinks Weilly has some arthritis in his shoulder. No silly old limp was going to stop my big brother from going to the park though - he's a tough old dude but Mommy kept a close watch on him anyway.

The lake was so pretty today, no wind so it was very calm and Mom wanted to get a picture of Weilly next to it. Of coarse I had to help. "Have you got the flashy thing at the right level Mommy, are you close enough Mommy, wouldn't you rather take a picture of ME Mommy." Of coarse Weilly wasn't being so helpful either, he was more interested in the geese and ducks and what was happening 'over there'.

We then went up through the forest path which was nice and quiet. The "Lake Walkers" as Mommy calls them tend to stick to the path around the edge of the lake, where as we like to follow the ones through the trees. But we both had to stop and stare and listen when we heard something scrattling in the bushes. I was a bit worried when Weilly said it was probably just a giant "white and tan dog" eating squirrel but Mommy said he was just teasing me. I was extra vigilant on the rest of our walkies though as you can never be too sure. I did have to wonder why they don't eat white and black doggies though?



  1. Nice post Denny. Hope Weilly is alright, you have to take things slower when you get older. Tucker has arthritis in his right front elbow. He gets pain meds too.

  2. Oh Denny, you are so silly, you really don't want another big dog to eat your brother, do you? He is your big protector. And remember Jackson is coming back:)

    Seriously, we all hope things work out well with Jackson - if not, send him here, you know our Mom loves that little guy.

    Happy New Year from all of us at The OP Pack!

    Happy New Year!

  5. The lake was very pretty in that photo! Glad you got out again to walk. Hope Reilly's limping is just soreness.

    Happy New Year to you all!

  6. It's okay, Denny. You will get through the changes. I had lots of company these past two weeks and each visitor and I got along better and better. Looks like a pawsome day for a walk. We have some clouds here, but we are getting ready to take one too.

    Doggy Kisses,

  7. Denny, it does seem like the giant squirrels always eat tan and white doggies, never black and white. I don't think they like the taste of black and white ones.

    Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you like cousin Jackson!

  8. Hoping everything turns out ok for Reilley!!

    Happy New Year!!
