Finally...A Walkie!!!

Arty here today!! After last week's Wordless Wednesday, some of you may have been wondering if Mama EVER took me out for walkies last week. As you can see, she DID!! After whining and crying (and waiting for a break in the rain) we hit the trails!!






Come along and I'll show you what I saw!





The sun was out and it was a balmy 51 degrees F, a most beautimous day for walkies! The trails had some mud puddles, but I managed to not splash in every single one of them avoid most of them.




There was some wonderful reading to be had, here I am reading a new novel by Stephen King's Corgi! He is the dog behind the author for sure!









Mama and I saw our shadow twins.




They were WAY long today, and pretty scary, so we made sure to give them slip at our next turn!!




I have decided that, since this pond didn't have a name, I would name it
The Arty Pond!! What do you think, catchy right???




After all of that cool walking, Mama and I came home and, while she and Dory caught up on Blogville gossip, I took a much needed nap!!

Did you all get out for walkies this weekend???

So pleased you got to go kurt for such a nice walk Arty. We think the pond is now perfectly named.
Oh but your terrain looks like a desert compared to NE Scotland just now…
Toodle pip!

Yay! No walks here. Sadly, Military Husbands dad passed away last week and he's been very sad. Hope to get back to walkies soon!!

No walkies here - it wuz too cold for em. Momma refuses to walk when it's below 40.

We got rained out yesterday, Arty, and we were not happy about it! The Arty Pond is a great name! Go with it!

Marg said...

That looks like such a great walk Arty. What a fun time you had. Does Bilbo ever go walking?? He is so cute and looks like he is very shy. You all have a great day.

Jeanne Pursell said...

Too cold here too Arty! We love going on your walk...very pretty!

The Daily Pip said...

Too cold here for long walks, Arty. I sure love the pictures of your shadows.

Way to go Arty and you've got a pond named after you! Well done, mate!

Mara said...

I didn't! Mara had to work and then there was snow and then it was Monday and I was allowed out again for a bit.

That shadow photo is very nice.

All the rain sure turned things green. It has gone below zero here, so our walks are only 20-30 mins right now so we don't freeze to the pavement! Later this week it will warm up.

the Arty pond is the perfect name :)

Mark Muller said...

I'm with you Arty Pond sounds much better than no name pond... to get a name what's no name it's not easy... not even for a pond :o)

Madi and Mom said...

YAYAYAYAY SUN AND NO RAIN. I TELL YOU THE SIMPLE PLEASURES IN LIFE ARE HARD TO BEAT.

I DON'T TAKE WALKIES BUT GUESS WHAT. MOM STARTS WALKING KASI AGAIN THIS WEEK.
ALL HIS HUMAN SIBS HAVE BEEN HOME FROM COLLEGE FOR OVER A MONTHS SO MOM WASN'T NEEDED.
WOOHOO
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF

Oz theTerrier said...

I got some walks between the raindrops this weekend, Arty. I am so glad you finally got out. I think that pond should be officially renamed to Arty Pond

What a lovely walk. I miss the color green and I'm tired of seeing brown. Say Arty Pond is catchy.

Aroo to you,

No walks for us but we did get out in the yard a little more. Mom & Dad throw the ball down the hallway for me so I can get some exercise. Tonight I get to go to class - wish you could come too Arty!

What a wonderful walkie! And 51 degrees?!?!?! Mom is swooning! We think that is a good name, will you be changing the sign?

Keep Calm & Bark On!

That is definitely The Arty Pond!!! We finally got a very brisk walk yesterday AND again today. Today was a tad warmer, in the low 30s, but the sun was out and there was no wind. So we convinced Mom she needed a walk:)

Hope you can get out to that pond again this week, Arty.

Ziggy Stardust said...

Uncle Arty, that was a great walk!! Arty Pond is for sure the best name ever. I am glad you got to go out. It is very very cold here and it is snowing right now. Mommy and I are snuggling.

Ziggy Out!!
