What a pawsome morning

We got up early this morning and Mom said "Come on boys - let's go on an adventure" My dogness, we were in the car and waiting before she could blink! One of the things we have discovered about our park is that there are all these wonderful paths that go winding through the forest. This is the one we took today which actually goes from one park across to another park - so we got a two-fer (we visited TWO parks in one walk!) We started by this sign that said"you are here - well doh, we knew that already! Human signs are so silly sometimes) I was soooo happy that YES I even looked at the Mom when she took a photo - take it in fellow doggies - it doesn't happen often. So off we went, following this pawsome winding paths and Mom was pretty happy, the smells were wonderful - even to her although she kept her nose above ground level - she missed ALL the best stuff I think, but she seemed to love the smell of the trees. The Wuzster of coarse was skittish the whole way, he doesn't like strange noises and a branch across the path just about had him in a frenzy ! Me on the other paw was just LOVING it and yes, look another photo of a happy me - looking at the camera again.
Then we came to this little bridge and the Wuzster refused to cross it - he planted all four paws and refused to move. "Weilly - there is troll hiding under it and it will eat me" he cried. So I had to go and check the bridge out and 'scare' the troll away. Both Mom and me stood on the other and waited and YES eventually the chicken liver Wuzster did cross it. [Interjection from MOM : Reilly be nice about your little brother]

After our walk Mom had another surprise - another two-fer. She took us to Petco and to Hollywood Feed. At Petco she got me a really nice padded harness to wear on our walk (my good one somehow got lost when we moved) And she got ME some yummy treats - I don't think the Wuzster deserves any - he was even more scared in the store then he was at the park - kept crying something about aisle monsters! Mom did buy him a DAP collar though. Then we went to Hollywood which we really like because there is a nice lady there who always has the BEST treats and of coarse she adores me and gives me extra. And of coarse we got my bag of special dog food - "yep let me check the wrapper Mom - that is the one!" The nice lady even carried it out to MY car because Mom isn't allowed to pick up heavy things. What a great morning - but we are dog tired now - so we are going to have a nice long snooze. Have a great weekend everyone.



  1. What a great morning that was, Reilly. I sure Denny will grow out of his fears, if you and your Mom keep helping him along. Beckett had to go the vet this morning for his annual check-up. He was a bit of a woossie boy too and they didn't even do anything today other than a physical exam.

  2. Great walk, Reilly. We have to cross a couple of bridges on our walks too. Lightning was fine with them until the day they brought in some of those wooden horses because they were going to repave the trail pathway. He was not going over that bridge for anything. But MOm talked him through it and now he isn't afraid of the blue horses any more. Hope the collar helps Denny.
