Labor Day Hiking

Thank dogness we did our hiking yesterday coz today it be doing this outside today:
Sofi, one of our guests at the B&B is looking at...
... RAIN!
Good thing we got all of the B&B guests out to the potties early afore this rain started falling!  But now that it be a lazy, rainy howliday here at the B&B and efurrybuddy be napping, I can spend some time on bloggies!

So yesterday me and mom did our hiking.
We hiked on a rail trail where trains used to go in the olden days but now peeples can walk or ride their bikes on it.  This be easy flat hiking coz we did not want to leave our B&B guests home alone too long.  We had to walkies unner the highway that we drived here on.
OMD, wot do it be down yonder on the trail?
Again, they did not move coz of me, I just watched quietly.  But when mom got all SQUEEEE...
... the deers got all creeped out and left.  (They so think my mom do be nuts.)
Same think happened with these burds.  Mom needs to learn to be quiet like me.
At the end of the pretty fancy schmancy trail, we had to go through this part of the old rail bed to get to the next trail.  This do be wot it looks like afore they take all the railroad ties away and make a trail out of it.
The next trail do be more rugged but pritty.
It do go by a nice creek.
I gots to get my furs wet.
At the end of the trail I found the olden day train station still there!  Then we had to turn around and go back the same way to where we started.

And look wot I seened on the way back:
See, I sit furry quietly and mom is all yak, yak, yak...
Then one final fur wetting just before getting in the car so I could be cool on the drive home.  The hikemobile likes that I bring her some water.

  8. Shawnee - you sure were quiet when those horses came by! I would have been barking up a storm :)

  10. Those horse-critters are OK by me too, Shawnee. I'm sooooo glad you got to wet your furs a couple of times on your hike. It's so important to our well-being, don't you think?

  11. Howdy Shawnee, even though your hike was an easy one it still looked so pretty. You are so clever to be quiet and not scare the horses. Love the last photo. Take care sweetie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
