Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

No Kongs Today... Just Sticks at Miller Creek!


This is the roadway to our first waterhole stop. We were lucky enough to be joined by Shasta and Shanti in our adventure!



All four of us are investigatin' pawsible stickies down under!




Hey hey hey! It's me, Sammie! I got the stick!





But here comes Avalon, trying to wrest it from me - woofers! Now... it's time to take our guests on the road to Squirrel Woods... gotta take some time out for some grazin'.





MOOOO!





So here we all are galloping through Squirrel Woods, with nary a squirrel to be seen - what a bummer! But we did meet up with....

Cupid! He's a Saint Bernard - see that white "arrow" on his forehead? That's how he got his name! Time to move on to... the BIG POOL! But first, a very satisfying roaching!





Here's Shanti, waiting, albeit soggily, for a thrown stickie!










Avalon: "Want this Shasta heheh?" (Isn't Avalon mean?) I paid her back!





This time, IIIIIIIIIIIIII got the stickie!!!
Here are a couple of very short movies you can check out - here
and here - enjoy!









Here's Shanti in the gorgeous light of the early evening! We sure had a great time!

It totally looks like you were having way to much fun. We would say we would come join you, but we are not real fond of the wet stuff. Enjoy! Sniffs, The HoundDogs

These pictures are gorgeous, but that one of Avalon coming out of the water should be on a calendar or something - fantastic!!

Great pictures -- what fun! Nothing like romping thru the creek and woods in the springtime. :-)

Sonic said...

I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I'm so SKEERED of the water! I don't like getting wet at all...

And in that first pic with the stick, I thought you caught a snake! Please stay away from those, cos I heard they're deadly!

A perfect day for water dogs... or is that water cows?

I love all your photos but I especially love the second to last one with the shaft of sunlight on the girls.

A day splashing through a creek looks like a perfect day!

That water looks so refreshing! Nothing better than the smell of dogs playing in fresh water and drying off. Love it. Your dogs are in paradise for sure!
