First it was WARM and then it was COLD

I am back to my own Blog.  I toles gussie he could write one day a week.  Right now he is practicing jumping off the table to see if he can learn to fly like Santa's reindeer, he is carrying Mom's cellphone with him waiting on the call up from our Santa Claus.

So on Sunday Mom says she is going to take the crazies out to the lake for a nice walk cos all of a sudden the weather turned warm.  So warm she opened the porch door and windows.  She told me she would take me out to the fairgrounds when they got back. I said NO FAIR cos I is the oldest but she didn't listen to me.

Now she is going to show you all these boring pictures cos she is using her daughters camera and it works really well, our mom is just learning how to zoom in and stuffs like that.  She did find her other camera tho right where she left it.

So since it was so nice out Mom had on capris and flip flops cos hers is not smart when it comes to appropriate walking gear. 

This is the one and only time they sit when our mom asked them to. Gussie was very mad he had to wear a pink harness and mom said he refused to cooperate at all.  See his face!

Mom went over all the rules with them, mostly about fires, and she checked they didn't bring any water guns with them. Gussie was all excited about animals must be on leashes cos he thought that meant EVERYONE that lived at the lake and Mom had to explain to him that the only animals he would see on leashes would be them.  He thought that was rather unfair.

This is a picture of the Des Moines river through the trees.  Mom took it at the top of the hill.  The river surrounds all the lakes here.  So we are basically surrounded by water and our mom can't swim.

On the trail mom took a picture of this little house out in the woods.  Mom reads way to many mystery creepy books cos she got all spooked out and they had to head back to the car.  Dad told her later it was a water pump place. 

All of a sudden the temperature went from 60's down to the 40's with the winds blowing the leaves and branches falling to the ground, because our Mom dressed inappropriately they had to head back to the little blue streak.

 Later we all just played around the house in the family room/dining room
The crazies fought over this

and I did this.

  3. OMD...PLEASE DO NOT tells Gussie I laughed at him in his pink harness...da important thing is dat he will remain safe in a harness no matters da color.


  4. Stella, I'm so glad you're back! Maybe you and Angus and Mags could have your own blogs! I saw your messages to little Tweedles and they must have made her feel better, because she was doing okay last night... way to go!

  5. The weather is crazy huh? We got 4" of snows on Friday and now today it is supposed to be 55 and sunny. We would have loved to go on that walkie with yous!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. Hi Stella, Walks are such fun; I bet you were laughing with the pink harness that Angus had to wear. I still think he is cute. It is cold here today but we had so much wind over the weekend. Hope you have a great afternoon.

  10. That looks like more fun than we had ... mama thought it would be the perfect day for Christmas card photos! UGH ... that was NOT fun!

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney

  11. Looks you might have caught the last of the good weather. LOL the pump station in the woods would have us thinking creepy thoughts.
    Gussie should you be wearing Pink? Not very Ninja.
    Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Aww, Gussie looked just darling in his pink harness. No need to pout about it! Looks like you guys had a great day. It's been warm here too.

  13. Well Gussie I think you dogs stirred up a storm. When that temperature dropped and the wind started, well by the time it reached me it was like 67 mile an hour winds. Don't worry about the pink ~ confident male dogs can wear pink just fine.
    Thanks for being a friend

  14. Pictures! Yay!! It's nice to see some new pictures of my furiends for a change. :) I hope that you still got your adventure at the fairground later.

  15. What? Didn't you get to go to the Fairgrounds when She got back with the crazies? Dat isn't fair. Tell her that she shouldn't break promises…. Santa Paws wouldn't like it.

  16. OKAY... we can't EVEN think about the rest of the super stuffs in the post beclaws we are WORRIED about Angus Mac thinkin he wants to be one of Santa Paws' Reindeer. THIS is NOT somethingy you want to do at ALL Angus Mac... THINK about it buddy... All the Reindeer get is CARROTS. You would NOT get any Pressies. Do you want THAT??? Surely NOT. You GOTTA have PRESSIES and TREATS and stuffs... a Dawg does NOT live by Carrots alone.
    Just put that phone away... and Keep a LOW PROFILE... so you don't get on his Naughty list.
    OH and THAT was a fun outing Even if your mom DID need the Fashion Pawlice to help her get ready fur it.

  17. It's cold cold cold here

    Stop on by for a visit

  18. Welcome back. I was starting to get worried

  19. We are glad to have you back, although we do enjoy Gus' posts as well. WE had crazy it is really warm then really cold weather too . . . very bad how that works. Hope tomorrow is nicer out for you. Lee and Phod

  20. hmm y'all sure y'all don't live in Texas with the weather going to warm to cold it just sounds like Texas weather to me.

    Aroo to you,

  21. BOL! That water pump house probably had some of the nicest water ever!


  22. I loved hearing about your day and the walkies and it reminded me of times when moms used to say- want to go for a walk? I have a feeling you really did want to go walkin right? And to the fairgrounds where there are lots of cool smoles to breathe in.
    I loved to see your river-- and I hope you never go swiim in it - cause it looks so big- but it is sooo beautiful!
    Thank you for always remembering me in your thoughts and prayers

  23. That looks like a beautiful place to go for a walk.

  24. That does look like a lovely park.....and you have a blue streak zoom zoom like we do. I wonder if squirrels have to be on a leash
