B & W Sunday Snippets

We thought we would catch up on some questions asked during the week - the first one was about the pet UN-friendly Greer Ferry Lake we visited on Tuesday and the town of Oil Trough we stopped at on the way. We did some research and found the town is believed to have acquired its name in the early 19th century from a trough used to render bear fat, which was sold to customers in New Orleans. We guess they must of killed a lot of bears cause there hasn't been any bears around here for a very long time.

The funky RV we saw on Wednesday had many of you dreaming like our Mom - Mom dreams of visiting all our buddies and seeing all the great things to see around the USA and Dad dreams of being of able to go to every Penn State Football game. This weekend he drove 6 hours to go and see them play in Bloomington Indiana and then drove 6 hours all the way back. We figure we could combine both things - sight seeing and tail gating ........we just need to win the lotto :) :)

Some of you asked what the Kangaroo treats taste like....kangaroo is very close to venison - it is deep red meat,  is extremely lean and high in protein. Many people say it tastes just like venison. Because their meat is very muscular it needs to marinated and tenderized well for people to be able to eat it and NO - Mom has never tried it - she grew up looking after baby kangaroos and just couldn't even think of ever eating one. One of the most popular dishes back home is kangaroo tail soup and it is very similar to osso buco.


  1. Hey you two—we love that gorgeous photo of you:-)
    And we appreciate your Mom's sensibilities about eating kangaroo. She'd love to see one "in person".

  2. Lovely photo guys, you two are seriously photogenic!
    Gosh, your Dad is a very dedicated fan, i bet you gave him lots of fusses when he got home
    Thanks for the research Mom, i thought Oil Trough sounded quite nice, if a bit odd, but i've gone off it completely now...poor bears !
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend

    Fantastic photo of you both beautiful guys :-) x

  6. When we get together with our Cussin Sarge... we always end up saying that if we could JUST WIN THE LOTTERY... we would Tour the USA and meet all our furends... then hop a JET and visit our furends in OTHER Places... Ernie wants to do AUSTRALIA FURST... IF we just JUST WIN THE LOTTERY.

  7. Interesting about the name of the park. You guys crack us up because you always pose so nice

  13. I only wants an RV if I getta ride shotgun.

  14. Hi guys! We're trying to get a little bit caught up today! Looks like you guys are doing well -- our mom just LOVES the black and white photo! (Did you know she's a Penn State alum, by the way?)
    Take care, guys, and we hope to start visiting blogs a bit more often!

  15. Love the sun rays on the photo! I can testify that my sisters and I loved the Kangaroo jerky we got, it was awesome.

  16. A kangaroo steak cooked well...which means rare is quite good.

    We pups love the tails.

  17. You look very handsome in black and white! Happy Sunday and we won't be eating any Kanga's around here, I don't think.

  18. Kangaroo meat. Gee, we never thought of munching a kangaroo!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  19. Love the way the sunbeams are streaking across your faces in this beautiful B & W!!!

    Venison is yummy - we have venison canned food that even Phantom likes. Bet that kangaroo is yummy.

  20. Didn't know your Dad was a big Penn State fan. I did some post graduate work though Penn State. Most of it was distance but I did have a week on campus.

  21. We always think it's fun to know how places got their name! I think it would be fun to drive around and see the whole USA! We're not campers, so we would have to have a RV. My mom's ex-boyfriend won a BIG lottery (4 days after they broke up!). He always said he'd prove money can buy happiness. He's still trying to prove it and he's not any happier now. ;)

  22. Reilly, you head has gone all stripy!
    Toodle pip!
    PS Thanks for explaining the name Oil Trough. We would never have guessed.

  23. Sorry mom, we eat raw ground kangaroo and it's very lean, high protein and we like it. My mom and dad have not eaten it. So they'll just take our word for it that it's good.


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