Back on Patrol

I have so many parks to take care of it was hard deciding which one to go to first - but Mom said - lets go in order of how we first found them - so today we headed off to MY Fort Caroline Cowspotdog Timucuan Preserve. This is the park where I became an official Florida bark ranger. Now we must apologize for the photo's being a little dark - we are still getting the tail end of Tropical Storm Erika so we have lots of grey skies and rain fore casted for the rest of day.

Our first stop was the little Timucuan Indian hut - we are happy to see it survived the winds and rain. Next we checked out the Bark Rangers board - do you see us on there - we are at the very top on the left side - we are after all 'top dogs'.

We couldn't get down to see the actual fort today as my staff were busy trimming some broken trees and mowing the lawns so instead we headed off down the pier to take in the view of the St John River. Mom loved seeing this sign about the manatees and always hopes we we will see one - but so far they remain pretty elusive. Mom says we were very brave boys as this is actually a floating pier so it moves as you step on it. And the last pictures are for Aunty Yamini - we saw these boats way over the other side of the river at the dock yard - we wondered if they ever make their Scotland. Sadly we couldn't see the boats names to we could check on where there have been.


  1. oh what an adventure! and now I know how a manatee looks... I'm puzzled now because my mom said, I'm such a manatee...

  2. Great to see you out on patrol again guys. And it was so brave of you to step onto that floating pier thingy. Not sure I would have been prepared to do that.
    Toodle pip!

  3. COOL! Fun to explore a new place. Golden Woofs, SUGAR

  5. Good job you guys! Nice that things seem to be just as you left them. Your staff is doing a good job keeping everything up to your high standards.

  6. Glad y'all got to get out and do some Bark Ranger stuff. Mom zoomed in on the photo board so we could have a good look at you two.

    Aroo to you,

  7. That's cool. You're gonna have fun going to all those parks.


  8. Oh, that hut looks so cool - bet it would be fun to nap in there:) A floating pier - now that would be very scary for Lightning - glad you two didn't float away.

    Thanks for the encouraging words, blogville friends are the best

  11. That hut looks a bit like the Crabana in the Crabby Girls Crabitat! We think you are very brave going on that bridge thingy.

  12. Glad you got back out on patrol. Think of all the mayhem that would happen if you weren't there to check up on things.

  13. It is so cool that you have all those places to explore and leave pee-mail. I bet you had a lot of chances to leave your messages for other pals to read.

    Ziggy Out!!

  14. Always good to check on things and make sure your employees are doing their job, keeping your park in order.

    Seeing a manatee would be so cool! I got excited about seeing a muskrat, and they're not nearly as interesting.

  15. It is nice to know that your parks and beaches are safe with y'all on patrol. I love the hut! That board of Bark Rangers is a great idea.

  16. What a really cool place to explore!!!
    Yours sincerely,

  19. Guys, you really hit the jackpot with your move. The humidity may be crazy butt the parks and beaches and wonderful places you get to visit must make up for it. How is your mom doing?
