Haunted Howloween Hike - CANCELLED

Furst we missed our hike coz of Irene, now we missed our hike coz of Snowtober.  Grrrrr.  There is not supposed to be any snows here in October! We had a haunted hike planned in Con-etiquette with my furrend Haley but Snowtober put the kabash on that big time.
  • Snow total fur Newark, NJ (by me) - 5.2 inches
  • Snow total fur Hartford, CT (by the hike) - 12.3 inches

Where we hiked last weekend in Noo Joisey be unner a foot of snow and where we hiked the weekend afore in Massy-chew-sits be unner TWO feets of snow!  Snowtober did not swipey our powahs but it did swipey our innerwebs and televishun and stuffs yesterday.  It be a werld gone mad, I tells you!

I think the moms mite be talking about doing the hike next weekend and pawtending it be Howloween so we can get all haunted and spooked and all like we woz supposed to today.  But with all the trees falling down with the heaby snow on them, we don't want to be deaded fur real by them.  So I'll be in my hidey spot all snug and warm waiting fur the snow to melt away...


  1. Iz glad you iz staying cozy an safe in yer hidey hole Shawnee. All dat snow iz crazee fur oktobrrrr, you shud come to arizowna insted, we duzn't haz. Stay safe an I hopes you get to take teh skardy hike soon!

  2. Hi Shawnee,
    I love your name!!!
    I am so sorry about all that snow. I'll bet it has messed a lots of dogs and peoples plains up for this week-end.
    WE are in Fla and it is cold here today too. Of course not cold like your cold. WE hardly ever have snow.
    I love Shepherd's!!!
    I just got high speed so I can come see you more often.
    xx, Fern

  3. Well zeesh, whatcha gunna do mate? Snooze well,


  4. Hi Shawnee! We're sorry you missed your hike! It's been in the 80's here and very clear, and as soon as the sun goes down the temp drops to the low 60's. Pawfect!! We'll think of you today on our hike!

  5. Wow... that's a lot of snow. Sorry snowtober wrecked your plans. Keep warm, pal. I'm sending you warmies from Florida.

    pawhugs, Max

  6. Awww Shawnee - I can see the disappointed look on your face too. Darn Snowtober! When m heard the news about all the snow you were supposed to get out in that area, she said "YIKES - I'm so glad that's not happening here." Sorry sweetie, but we hates snow.

  7. Shawnee, that sucks! I bet your haunted hike was going to be totally awesome, too. We had beautiful weather here yesterday, but it's cold and rainy today, so we're pretty much doing the same thing you are. Phooey on bad weather!


  8. Shawnee, Houndstooth was right on. It really sucks that you and Mom didn't get to go on your spooky hike.
    Your face looks so sad. Rest up-- we know another hike be coming soon for you.

  9. I'm so sorry your hike got canceled. Snowtober's messing up everything! It came here too and broke one of our trees. :(

  10. I am sorry you didn't get to go on your hike too cause I always love to see pictures from your trip.

    You sure have a good way of showing your dissapointment. I love the second picture. I bet you win lots of treats with that look.

    Well stay safe and warm for Halloween.


  11. Hi Shawnee, sorry about all that snow and missing your hike. We are glad you stayed inside where it is safe from falling trees and stuffs. Keep warm friend. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  12. Sam says to stay warm! He will gladly send you all his jackets and sweaters!


  13. Awww thats such a bummer!

    Stop on by for a visit

  14. Keep warm, girlfriend! I was so surprised when I heard about the snow there this weekend and it's not even November. I swear I'm not trying to rub anything in, but today the high is supposed to be 80 degrees. Mama would rather be there believe it or not. She wants the seasons and the pretty fall colors and even snow. Well, hopefully you'll get the spooky hike next weekend and then you can scare us with it.


  15. Boo to that snow for messing up your hike! I hope it doesn't snow that much, so you can go soon! :)

    Woofs & hugs for a great Halloween! <3

  16. Darn snows. :(
    Mumma be saying that alot of my pup pals hafe the snows at their house, but that just be totally no fair that the snows hafe gone & put the bitey on your hiking too.
    We is hoping that your Mamma doesn't furget all that re-training what you gibed her on her hiking skills last week.
    That hidey spot does look fery comfy tho, and much safer than going out where the heafy trees might fall on your head. Halloweeenie be fery funny for pretend, but not if it be fur real.

    See wooo next week,

  17. We thought of you and your hike when we heard the forecast. Now you have to know that we would LOVE to be out in that snow, but we are sad to hear about all the peeps who have been hurt by the storm. So many without power:(

    You look nice and snuggly there, Shawnee, but we bet you would rather be hiking.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  18. NO HIKEY??? BUMMER!!

    It be in da 80's here....wanna hike down here??

  19. Not SNOW already?! We're probably ALMOST as bummed as you since we won't get to go on a 'virtual' Shawnee hike this week. Hope you get to go on your spooky hike next weekend, for sure :) Stay safe and snug in your hidey spot!

  20. So sorry your hike was cancelled! But we don't want to have a real haunting...please be safe!

  21. So sorry about your hiking. We missed Snowtober here in the eastern part of Furginia. Mom was out west at the Breaks Interstate Park and while the snow went all around her she managed to miss it!

  22. That's a pretty neat hidey hole, Shawnee. I don't blame you for not wanting to go out with trees and stuff falling here and there and everywhere. I don't know anything about snow yet--is it fun?

  23. Shawnee,
    The trees still be falling here in masterchewsitts. It was a boring weekend for me too. Oh well that just means we have to make up for it next weekends. Snggles

  24. I think my last comment about another great hike of yours ended up on your amazing Halloween post (great pics!). I believe this post is about the hike you had to cancel. Clicking these little words can be tricky! : )
