Sunday Snippets #3

Snippet #1 -  Many of you asked how the patch of iris came to be in MY park. MY park has been around since 1937 and is 697 acres in size but before that there were some farmhouses and building there. Every now again we come across the remains of some of the old buildings - just the floors as the all the buildings were removed. Now some of these houses originally had gardens  - which is how with think this  patch of iris's came into being. Over time it has got bigger and bigger and they just seem to thrive where they are.

Snippet #2 - Mom is still pondering over how the hang the finished rug on the wall but in the meantime she put it on the floor in an area we don't use - but some doggie has decided he REALLY likes to lay on it. Mom decided she would start another rug - but this one is much smaller and is going to be a front door mat. Mom is going to use the same colors as the Goanna rug (because she still has some of the wool left over) but it is going to have different creatures on it.

Snippet #3 - Our persistence finally paid off - all those hellos encouraged a young couple who were fishing  to chat with us and they even gave ME and ear scratch and a back rub. Oh coarse I was tempted to nip the guy when he called me "a Lassie dog" and told me what a 'pretty girl" I was!!!!.  Mom quickly explained I wasn't a collie or a girl - it was a good thing he was nice otherwise I would have had to take matters into my own paws!  I really liked the lady though as she kept telling me what a handsome boy I was :) Dweeb of coarse hid behind Mom the whole time and wouldn't let them anywhere near him.


  1. We think Denny is lucky to be ALLOWED to lie on that rug.

    Glad there were some friendly peeps on your walk. We usually get called boys....

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  2. Denny, you and that rug together are a great match!
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail has a serious question about your park. When she lived in Oklahoma she visited many state parks that had been constructed during the Depression by workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps, and was impressed by how the then government had the foresight to do something that both gave people work and had lasting benefits to the environment. She notes the age of your park, and wonders if it was part of that scheme?

  3. Looks like Denny has found a new bed for himself. Good for him! I think it looks great on the floor.

    Glad you found some friendly people on your walk. Everyone always thinks my boys are girls too.

  4. I would love to lay on your fabulous rug too. It's beautiful and it fits totally to your fur.... Silly, the sheltie in my neighborhood has the "Lassie-problem" too. Once a guy said: oh I had no clue that Lassie was such a small dog! Silly's mom said, that's because you were a little boy as you saw Lassie in Tv lol Have a great sunday in YOUR wonderful park

  5. If people sniffed our butts they wouldn't call us the wrong gender or breed, sigh!
    We think if it is on the floor it is ours to lie on! Have a great day.

  6. We love how Denny looks on that GORGEOUS Rug... It compliments his furs colors.
    We have a lot of Daffy Dills and Iris growing in Strange locations... and they are Also from where folks USED to have homes.. It is a real surprise to see them blooming all by themselves like that.

  7. Pee S.... we get our Mane and Tail stuffs at WALLY WORLD... it is cheaper there...
    AND did you know that M & T is good fur your mom and dad's Furs Too?
    Our Mom uses OUR M & T... often.

  8. Way to go mum you got someone to say hello.
    Have a serene Sunday and let us all enjoy some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. Snippet #3 was my fave!!! And guess what? A lady out running actually said "hello" to us first today! We thought of you. Never give up. Always be yourself!

  10. Wow - that park is huge!

    And don't feel bad, Ryder gets called "pretty girl" often. I think people equate long fluffy fur with girls!

  11. Looks like Denny and the rug will be great partners

  12. We can't believe that someone mistook you for a girl, Reilly! OMD!
    We can't wait to see your mom's next project coming along!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  13. How nice you met new friends! You guys are pretty furry so its hard to tell sometimes about being a girl or a boy so that's excusable. To hang the rug you'll need wood strips across the top and bottom to stablaize it. Love Dolly

  14. Gorgeous rug, <3 it! Lovely park. Golden Woofs

  15. Denny looks great on that rug - the colors are perfect for him. Nice of the fishing couple to be so friendly - it doesn't hurt to be nice and say hello:)

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  16. I think the new rug should have shelties on it.

  17. I'm so glad to meet you. Thanks for visiting Barking from the Bayou. Your dogs are gorgeous!

  18. Yaaaaaaay Denny .... you got to lie on the rug. Good on you!!!! C'mon Reilly .... now it's your turn. That rug was made for a floor. It looks great!!

  19. Funny how much Denny likes the rug!

  20. Oh that rug is just gorgeous, what I can see of it BOL xxxoxxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  21. Katie is never mistaken for a boy, I think it's her princess like attitude. But hey Dweeb..I mean Denny....if you let some people pet you I think you'd like it!

  22. My peep and I were wondering about those flowers! I bet the people who originally planted them had no idea they'd still be growing today. I get called a boy all the time...even with my daisy collar on!


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
