Meet Us At Bryce!

Hi ever'body! We wanted to pop in on the day that Arty, Rosy & Jakey were telling everyone about the upcoming Mini BAR at Bryce Canyon.  As you might know, me and Stanley have been there a million times!

We think Bryce Canyon is an extra special place.  It's rather remote, and located at just over 8,000 feet.  

It's a photographer's dream and the hiking is magnificent!

It's very international too.  There are people from all over the world coming to see Bryce Canyon!

We like the hoodoos, there are a million of them!  

And the best thing is to hike among all the hoodoos and see what new sculptures the wind has created!

A word of caution: Dogs are NOT allowed to hike in the canyon.  We are only allowed on paved trails throughout the park and the paved rim trail.  BUTT we can go to nearby Red Canyon and hike those trails!  

There's a free shuttle that will take you from point to point (all through the park) if you don't want to hike.  

There are a variety of options for lodging.  For dogs, RV's are the best option cuz it's expensive for dogs to stay at the hotels.  We'll be in the little wheelie house!  There are also cabins and teepees!

You have to be prepared for any weather conditions cuz ANYTHING is possible in early May!

Butt we hope some of you will take advantage of this mini BAR and plan to vacation with us!

For more details, you can see the videos on the Blogville Facebook age (there are 4 of them).  Although this is a casual, no planning mini BAR we are happy to answer any questions.  Leave your questions in the comment section and we will answer them there cuz probably someone else has the same question.

We hope to see you there May 2nd - May 6th!

Doodle Greetings!

Hello everyone! You may have seen us going around Blogville yesterday.  We hope we saw everyone!  

Anyway, me and Stanley wanted to tell you we recently went to Bryce Canyon (see mom's boring blog for photos).  On our way back we were ALMOST home and we heard a terrible sound!  It turned out that the underbody cover of the wheelie house tore loose and was dragging under the wheelie house!  So the wheelie house will be going back in the shop later this month.  While it's there mom and dad are going to revisit the A/C issue cuz dad bought a thingie to measure the CFM and it is only putting out a third of what it should!  That story is to be continued!

Me and Stanley went running today but only went half the distance cuz it was so windy mom and dad were freezing.  Of course, me and Stan thought it was just right!

Farewell Good Friend!

Today we honor a dear furend, the first and only ever female and feline mayoress of Blogville.  She entertained us with her stories and antics.  We watched her in Cat Scouts and saw her purr over her man cat Raz.  And oh the twerking!  As special as Madi was to us, she was even more special to her pawrents.   

But in our opinion, the greatest thing she ever did was bring people, kitties and pups together.  And she did it all without ever leaving the house.

Farewell Madi, we will miss you!

Please stop over and offer some comforting words to her pawrents who are still reeling from her sudden and unexpected departure to the Bridge.

Checking In

We are glad that our pals in the area of mean ol' Florence are all okay.  We hope no one has too much clean-up.  We are wondering if Ranger has gone home to check on things yet?

Me and Stanley told mom we needed to check in with ever'body and let them know we are still here!  Some pals on Facebook see mom's posts but other fur pals in Blogville do not see them!  

It has been a long, hot summer and many of our fun activities have been put on hold.  Finally, we got to start running again so mom said there is hope it will cool off one day.

In the meantime, we are just keeping on.  We still do our chores around the house.

And Stanley still lives for food.  As a matter of fact, mom only got 2 cantaloupes from her pathetic garden and Stanley picked (and ate) both of them before she could even get a chance!  Mom had to buy one at the store!

Mom and dad are still riding their bikes like crazy.  Mom posted a few things about that a while back on her boring blog (on sidebar).  So all that is left for me and Stanley is . . .

We're Back!

You probably didn't know we left but in case you did, we're back!  Me and Stanley went to northern California to check on our niece Rosy.  She has grown so much since she left Utah and was adopted by Mayor Arty's family!  And dog oh dog can she run! She literally flies through the air! (We hope her mom has some photos of Rosy flying.)  We also did some catching up with the fellas, Arty and Jakey.  It was good to see them after almost a year!

Yesterday we took our pawrents out for a 6 mile run.  Lately, the weather has been kinda warm but yesterday was a bit cooler so me and Stanley really enjoyed it!

Here we are just taking a little nap.

At our house we are very serious about our naps, especially on the days mom and dad get up early to do their long run.  Last Saturday our pawrents rode their bikes for 37.5 miles but they did not nap when they finally got home.

Sometimes we nap on the chair too.

Sometimes I nap on the couch.  Is it time to eat?

Stanley wanted his picture taken with Bear.

That's all we have for now.  Mom says she and dad are putting together our trip for next month.  She said something about the Redwoods.  The furst trip we ever took was when we were 6-month-old baby puppies and me and Stanley went to the Redwoods.  It was how we learned to ride in the truck for REALLY long drives.  Mom says we are easy travelers.
