Water and Walkies

Mom took some video of the big freight ship yesterday and also our walkies. If you watch you can see there are three tugs working the ship, one way out in front, one at the back and one at the side. Mom says it is hard to imagine this thing out on the open ocean it is just so big and square and it doesn't look like it could cut through the waves. We also went for a walk in MY own little jungle - Mom says it is like stepping back in time and you could almost imagine a dinosaur passing by :)


  1. So glad to hear that Bree is doing better. POTP do work and I and mom are still sending them your way.

  2. I'm always impressed how big this ships are for real... and I wonder that only some peeps on board can manage such a giant shoe-box like ride...maybe your own jungle was the set for Jurassic Park once?

  3. I luffs the swishing sheltie butts!!!!!Soooooo cute!!!!!
    That boat was moving at a pace wasn't it?

  4. We have seen these when visiting New Orleans. They definitely don't look sea-worthy! Wow! Are y'all walking in Jurassic Park??

  5. Hey Reilly & Denny!
    Wow, what a girnormous barge! My peeps see those on the river near Pittsburgh sometimes, but they are slow. Yours is moving really fast. OMD what a fun walkie. Looks tropical and jurassic too. BOL swishy, swishy
    Grr and Woof,

  6. It totally looks like a box, weird that it can be ocean ready. We thought it looked like you were in the jungle on your walk.

  7. That was a lovely walk through your jungle. It felt like we were right there with you.
    And yes, wow, the freight ship is HUGE and, yes, square. So much bigger than the ships we see in Aberdeen harbour. We are wondering if such a vessel ever goes out into the open ocean or maybe the containers are reloaded onto a more seaworthy ship?
    Toodle pip and cheers!
    Bertie and Gail.

    what a fabby little film!!! As you know, I am fond of a ship or two and this one is very different from any I see here.... it almost look like it left the superstructure out at sea!!! Like trucks which unhitch their trailers.... love the sheltie swishies!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

      Me again... had a few minnies to play with my shipping softwares... Mitch and Molly were onto it when they called this a 'barge'... actually, just typing in Crowley shipping brings up interesting info. Then, with a bit of searching, found this piccie, which is labelled "oil spill barge". Clearly never designed with a superstructure at all. However, there are ships being built now which will be 'unmanned' and they are initially launched without superstructure, thus looking very like this. See here.....

      Don't worry. I'm really quite ordinary..... Yxx

  9. It's moving a lot faster than we thought it would. We've only seen tugs manoeuvring ships onto the docks, so we just assumed they always moved slowly.

  10. Our mom could just sit and watch ships furever. BTW, did anyone ever tell yous that you wiggle your butts when you walk BOL!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  11. Gosh that looks like a big ole box floating by. Love your jungle
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  12. Wow, that thing is HUGE!!! It's like the size of a football field!
    I love your walk in the jungle! Is that the Cowspotdog Jungle? It looks really fun to explore!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  13. That is HUGE!

    I love your jungle and your wiggle butts :) Good to see you two!

  14. We loved seeing the big ship! We also loved your walkies. Now ghostwriter is missing Florida. She likes to visit our Jessy in Boca Raton in October, but Jessy is too busy with her new job right now.

  15. Looks like a jungle ... Beautiful Jungle. Love it! WOW! forget about the freight ... just love the beautiful clouds. Golden Thanks for sharing. Happy Friday. Golden Woofs

  16. what a great video! That ship was cool and I have to tell you, Dakota heard the sound of your chains jingling when you were walking and he is barking out the window looking for you! BOL!! Love your jungle!


  17. That big ship looks very heavy, those tugs must have to work very hard to get it moving so quickly.

    Love, love, love seeing you two walking in the jungle. We are guessing Denny hasn't much choice but to keep up with you, Reilly, as we see you two have your walking strings attached. Great place for a cool stroll.

  19. Wow - that is one huge barge! We love your sashaying hiney action, Reilly and Denny!

  20. Glad you are out and about on your walkies with your mom again! I believe the tanker that just sank came out of Jacksonville, which is so sad. Love Dolly

  21. That was super cool! I hope your Mom is feeling better, I am keeping paws crossed for her.

    Ziggy Out!

  22. We love your little jungle! Sounds like great fun!

  23. That was a great video! And what a wonderful place to explore, it DOES look like a jungle in there! Hope your mom is feeling better today too!

  24. That freight ship was moving out! And I love your jungle. It looks really inviting. I think I would love to snort through there with ya'll! Hogs and snort kisses to your mom! XOXO - Bacon

  25. Hmmm, dinosaurs. We wonder what a Sheltiesaurus would look like. My what big teeth you have.
