So mom decided to take a fall trip last weekend to a local attraction, the Kinzua railroad bridge. It was an engineering wonder and for years people would come from all over just to walk across it. Sadly in July of 2003 an F1 tornado tore through the valley and hit the bridge. A small part was left standing and you can still walk out and look down at the mangled pieces of metal that used to make up the massive structure. It is also a pet friendly place so your people can bring you with them! I choose to sit this trip out because crazy mom wanted to hike to the bottom!! It was a little beyond my comfort zone! Here are some pictures though because they are too cool not to share! it really is a lovely trip especially in the fall.
So finally got to go to the pet store for a shopping trip! I had the whole aisle to myself and picked out some pretty good eats.
The weather has also improved and we’ve been doing a lot of grilling…this is one of my prepared meals. The chef forgot that I ordered a side of bacon though….I ate it anyway but did tell the manager (aka mom).
We have also still been going on our fun hikes in the woods. I am always pack leader and am constantly surveying the area for potential threats (aka chipmunks). I guess that’s all for now just wanted to share a little update of what I’ve been up to. Hope everyfur is well and staying safe!
So this last week the weather has perked up a little around here and I’ve been going on lots of adventures in the great outdoors!
Taking a moment on our hike to let mom capture my beauty 💜
I took the lead on this particular hike to make sure there were no dangers ahead ( and to possibly get to some poop before mom could stop me!)
This was me coming back down a very high, rocky mountain…( note from mom-it was a medium size rocky hill 😉)
Scouting ahead again to ensure everyone was safe ( I absolutely did not try to roll in poo 💩) ( mom’s note- Miss Lilly started to do the roll and tuck but luckily she only got a dab on her cheek, still needed freshened up when we got home though!)
So we are glad the weather broke so we could enjoy Mother Nature for a little while! Hope everyone is safe and well!
So the weather has warmed up and I have been spending more quality time outdoors, for some strange reason mom refuses to get out my porch rugs or any of my nice cushioned furniture. I have been forced to make due with this old decorative hay bail still on the porch….I guess I’m going to have to make some calls if I want anything done around here!
So we decided to go fishing Saturday and enjoy the nice weather. Of course mom couldn’t resist taking some pictures of me!
I don’t blame her I am very photogenic 😉
Just a basset enjoying some quality outdoor time in the sunshine…I have my eye on a pile of deer poop to roll in if mom doesn’t get it first 😉
Note from Mom : ( I did not get to the deer poo pile first, it’s a nice day for a bath)
So we went on a little outdoor adventure a couple weeks ago… it involved hiking, rock climbing and waterfalls. Even though I’m very athletic I was still pretty pooped afterwards..luckily we stopped at my favorite pizza place ( it’s my favorite cause they have picnic tables outside and I’m allowed to sit at them for dinner) I got a nice drink and some pizza bones, all in all a good day!
It’s been so hot here lately I can hardly keep up with my duties…patrolling, barking, fertilizing….you get the point.
Mom caught me baking in the sun the other day…I was too exhausted to move…I thought I wasn’t going to make it.
Luckily she was able to revive me with some ice cream…it was a close call.
Note from mom: at no time was Miss Lilly in any danger of overheating…she can sometimes be a tad over dramatic.
Miss Lilly has been out enjoying the nice sunny weather the last couple days…which means moving from sunny spot to sunny spot to relax.
She did manage to hop up on her favorite garden bench to survey her kingdom in between naps. She found everything to be in order except for a few leaves!!
Finally got to sit outside all morning..it was in the 70’s, sun shining, nice breeze blowing..I of course remained on vigilant guard duty the entire time.
Side note from mom: Miss Lilly did take an ever so brief break from guard duty for an hour nap.💤
