Monday Hike and the Chiropractor

It woz a bootieous day and I had a chiropractor appointment so mom taked half a day vaycayshun so we could do a little hike afore my appointment.  This woz a new trail we went to check out just 15 minits from my chiropractor.
There woz the usual trails...
... and rawks to climb... (wating fur slowpoke mom)
... ginormous rawks...
... a rawk tunnel... (common in, mom, no bears in here)
... and seeniks!
So that be our little 3 mile hike fur today.  I is doing so well with the chiropractor re-a-line-ments that I dussn't has to go back fur 3 weeks now.   No stiffies no more!  Me and Dixie is even doing bitey face and paw thwocking at each udder and we hasn't done that in a long time.

Some of you asked about if'n I had to has a baf yesterday after playing swamp monstah.  I is pleased to repawt that due to mom's splitting head-ake, she woz not in the baf gibbing kinda mood (YAY!) so I had a bucket baf.  That be where mom fills up a bucket with warm water and just a drop or two of stinky shampoo (hey, it makes her happy) then I has to stick one paw at a time in so each leg has a turn getting washed.  Then my belleh gets washed with a washrag.  I dussn't mind a bucket baf, so much better than a real baf. Shudder.

I think it was very nice of your chiropractor to locate his office there by where you could take all those lovely hikes! It's too bad you don't have to go back for another three weeks. Humans like it when you give them excuses to take off from those jobs of theirs. I'm not sure when we get to go back to the trails, but I hope it's sooner rather than later!

P.S. Are you sure there are no bears in there?

Harroooo Shawnee! Good to hear woo are feeling spry! That looked like a mighty fine hike, the first picture is furry majestic!

We are all familiar with the bucket bath here- definitely better than a hose bath!

My Vickie had no idea that there was so much fun stuff so close to New York.

WE can't get enough of your hikes. Loved the big rock and your chiropractor sounds great.

My Vickie wants to come see them for herself.

I'm lucky my momma gets in those moods too and I got those smelly good sprays she rubs all over me.

Howdy Shawnee, we are glad you are feeling so good after the chiropractor business. Good hike and your bath sounds great to us. Mum might try that with Rory cause he doesn't like baths. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

So glad to hear your adjustments are helping so much! Isn't the chiropractor wonderful??? Hey, maybe your Mom could get him to do an adjustment on her for her head-achy :)
Those are some really pretty scenicals! And a short hike is better than no hike at all, right?

Wow, it looks like a fun adventure for you! And I'm so glad you are doing well with the chiropractor appointments, that's such good news! What more can a dog want besides a good hike and good health?? Well maybe a bone here or there too, but I'm sure your mommy takes good care of you there too! :)

So glad you're feeling up to bitey face and other fun games! Arwne has been having stiffness and arthritis woes lately, too. But your walks with Shawnee are what's keeping her young! Kudos to you!

A bucket bath, huh? I'm not gonna tell Mom about that one or that'll be next! She'd dump the whole bucket on me. I just know it.
