 On Saturday we took our pawrents on a hike.  Mom said we didn't pick too good of a trail cuz it was very dry and we ended up covered in dirt.  We were punished with waterboarding later when we got home.  I always have to keep track of mom cuz she falls behind.

Mostly the colors weren't too great (cuz everything was so dry) but every now and again we'd get a little spot of color.

I told mom she could always make it prettier with her computer hee . . . hee . . . 

This summer has been one of the driest on record.

Butt me and Stanley liked getting dirty and all the new smells.  

We're gonna ask mom and dad if we can go again real soon!

  2. what a wonderful idea to start into fall with a hiking adventure :o) I noticed that the red leaves taste better then the green ones, have you noticed that too?

    Oh I think it looks very pretty still - though I do wish I could send you some of the wet stuff we get so much of here... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. part of the fun of exploring is getting dirty :)

  5. I love hiking even if the weather and scenery isn't what you are hoping for. The smells are just amazing! So glad you had fun...and spotted some Fall colors!

  6. That looks like a great place for a hike except for the water boarding afterwards.

  7. Ohhhhh Doodz you two make dirt look fashionable better than any buddy I know.
    What is it with mom's getting lost? You might need to get her microchipped?!
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. Hey, these paw rents are just impossible. When it's wet, they don't like it 'cos you get covered in mud, and when it's dry they don't like it 'cos you get covered in dirt. Talk about a no-win situation…
    Toodle pip!

  9. We've actually had a fairly wet summer. Go figure. I think that your momma is silly -- she doesn't like dirt, she doesn't like mud. What DOES she like? Sheesh. Just stick on PAVED roads if you're going to be all picky.

  10. We sure would want to go again too. So many different smells

  11. Your spotty color looks like our spotty color!! It has been pretty dry around here this summer too!

  13. So pretty and how fun..well except the waterboarding cause that is never fun ;) BOL

  14. Bwahaahaa! We get covered in MUD! But the waterboarding is pretty much the same. Looks like a great walk.

    We live in the Sydney side. Actually, we live inland about 400kms NW of Sydney.

  15. Been dry here too. We have a chance of rain today but nothing has happened yet
    Mr bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  16. I dunno, guys...looks pretty nice to me but we hear you on the dryness thing. Same way in the Mile High City too. Can't remember the last time it rained...oh wait, yes I can...that's when it destroyed our roof. *sigh*

  17. Heck yeah y'all need to go again.

    Aroo to you,

  18. You took a beautiful walk. Thanks for taking us with you

  19. OMD, my STUD MUFFIN!!!! You gots the water torture TOO??!!!! Just for a little dust??? WTD??!!!

    Your Fiance, the one with the most luxurious and FABulous furs, Ruby ♥

  20. The dirt would be fun but if you had to get water boarded, it should have been mud! BOL!
