Three Hikes

OK, so since I last updated my bloggie I has done three, count them on one paw, THREE hikes I needs to update you about.  That do be ofur THREE weeks so one hike efurry week.

Furstly, we hiked where there be no map and no marked trails.  Crazee, I tell you!  But mom's furrend did this hike with his iBone app a while back so mom put his track on her GEE PEE ESS and she followed that.  Me, ha!  I knows the way, she could has just followed ME!
Just follow me, mom.
Hey mom, we is not BUSH WHACKING, is we?  COME BACK!  I HATE bush whacking and if'n you dussn't know what that means, it be where you go off the trail into the wild and bushes whack you in the eyeballs.  OK fine, I is coming.
At least there be compensation fur my trubbulls.
So then the next weekend we went back to the same place to a different pawt where a map did show some trails.  I was prepared to BUSH WHACK again coz there was trail missing on the map to make a connection but whoa, hold on to your leashes and look what I found...
... I found us a trail where the map sayed wasn't any and we nefur had to BUSH WHACK!
I found a lake fur getting my furs wet, too.
Then I prepared myself fur the BUSH WHACKING coz mom climbed up on this big RAWK and I could not get up coz of that stoopid Arthur Itis and I got all kinds of upset trying to find a way up to mom.  But she told me to STAY coz she be climbing right back down.  She was just trying to get seenical pictures.
But would you all not prefer a seenikal with ME in it?
Selfie with my mommy!
OK, then yesterday we went hiking at a different place.
This hike had old timey stuffs.
Fur wetting oppawtoonities.
Chickun Jerkey!
Tramadol fur me and ...
... Advil fur mom.  Neither of us be getting any younger, BOL.
Those horses be checking me out!
OK, so those be the highlights of my last three weeks.

PEE ESS:  This is what that old timey building in the woods do be from back in the 1800's:
The Knickerbocher Ice Company of Pennsylvania bought a small piece of lakefront property on the south shore of White Pond. They erected a formidable ice warehouse, 265 feet long, 100 feet wide, and 32 feet high. It was, by far, the largest and most outstanding structure in the area. In season, the warehouse would hold, at one time, 20,000 tons of ice. But ice production was a seasonal project, and the owners of the ice mill also processed marl, the white mineral product in the form of shells, located many feet deep, on the bottom of the lake. The shells were originally used as fertilizer, and also in big-city cesspools. And it soon became a vital additive to a new but wonderful product just coming into use, named "cement". And so the ice warehouse in winter and spring became a marl warehouse the rest of the year.


  1. OMD Shawnee We were EsCared that you would get Losted on the NO TRAIL fur followin hike... butt we SHOULD have known that you are a seasoned Veteran of Hikes and would NEVER get truly losted.
    OMD is that a CASTLE? Did you see a DRAGON or a Witch or a King or Queen?
    Those were Three super duper hikes. We are glad that you got out and enjoyed yourself.

  4. You are 100% correct, I do prefer a 'seenikal' with you in it!!

    Love, Cupcake

  5. Hey Shawnee! It's great to see you hiking again, and not just one but three hikes!

    Your mom is so lucky to have you with her since you found a trail and didn't have to bush whacking. Your treats look super nommy.

    Yes, a seenikal with you in it is always preferred. Love the selfie with your mom too.

    The lady loves ruins and appreciates you including a blurb on Knickerbocher Ice Company.

    p.s. You guys want a gigantic, white cat? You could pretend he's a dog since he's about the same size as you and Sydney.

    p.p.s. The lady says thank you for the nice note about him but I say the above offer still stands.

  6. Hi Shawnee! Just found your site. What a pretty pup you are!
    I go on hikies with my mom and dad too, but we don't live where it's as pretty as your area is. I even have the same harness (plus the backpack) and same orange collar! Ha!
    I also like the seenikals with you in them :)

  9. What great hikes again and super pictures. You and your mom are so cute together.

  10. Howdy Shawnee. Nice to see ya gorgeous girl. As always we LOVE your hikes and the scenics. Of course the scenics are the best with you in them and we loved you and your mum's selfie. Isn't it amazing to think of the old warehouse being a bustling place in it's heyday when we see it all overgrown and forlorn. Thanks for taking us along mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  12. Okay, you do know that "going off trail" is how all those horror movies start, right? ;)

    Great selfie with mom! Also a lot of great noms on these trails! And water. Overall, a recipe for happiness! :)

  13. I love your 3-in-1 hikes, Shawnee, even if we're a bit late in commenting. :) Especially the part where you get your furs wet--that's so impawtant.

    I'm so glad you didn't have to do that bush-whacking business. It hurts and then you get all these sticky things stuck to your furs--at least that's what happened to me.

  14. Those all sound like such wonderful adventures! I would love to see that last place. It looks pretty interesting, besides being nice to look around at!


  15. Good to see you back hiking Shawnee. And you're right the scenics ARE much better when you're in them

  16. Hey Shawnee and the Mom, long time we not see you or even any others in blog like. We been among the missing. So happy to see you on the hikes again. And 3 of them...OMD you are pawsome.
