Holidays, etc.

Hello Everyone,

First, the girls and I would like to thank everyone who has sent us Christmas cards already! We are having such fun at mother. We have received close to 20, and... how many have you received, mother? What's that you say? NONE? Zero, Zip. BOL.

Well, we have been very busy with the holidays. First, on Thanksgiving, we took a delightful 6 mile hike with Auntie and Mother. Auntie and the girls had not been on this particular trail, so I was delighted to show them the way. Zorra, there is a very good scent here... see?

And, so we started on our quest to hike the trail, 6 miles round trip. The trail goes along the canal. Part of the old canal tow path is now a railroad.

Zorra and I were walking with Mother. It takes two of us to watch her. We have a long way to go! So, let's get moving.

Auntie and Katie seem to have a difference of opinion on where to go. Here's a clue.... the trail continues straight!

Those two led us along until we reached the end of the track, as noted here. But, it wasn't the end of the trail!

We saw a lot of things along the trail, like this old piece of farm machinery. Of course, I had to bark at it.

Mother decided this was a perfect time for a photo shoot. Oh, how dimwitted she is at times. First, she made ME sit next to Katherine. Blech....

Katherine was more interested in the birds, than getting her photo taken. C'mon. The faster we get our mugs shot, the faster we can go sniff!

Did someone say treat? Do try to stay awake, Katherine!

Katherine has the attention span of a GNAT. LEAVE THE BIRDS ALONE!

OMD. NOW, SHE'S LOOKING FOR SQUIRRELS! We will never get the perfect shot.

I grew tired of those slackers, and now, I am off on my own trailblazing trek!

See you soon!!

Hiya Sam

Know how you feel about the photo shoot. My sister is very fidgety and a photo of us both together is a rarity. Must be a girly thing!!!!


Kelli said...

Hi Sam!
I'm Tibby! I saw you on DWB and wanted to stop in and say hello! It looks like you had a great time on your hike! It must me tough to get a good picture of 3 dogs! My Owner Girl has enough trouble getting a good one of just me!

Madison uses a squeeky toy to get my attention when she wants to take my picture. I don't think it's fair. She gets a picture and I don't get the squeeky.

Eric said...

Sam, my you look so handsome in all those pictures, most photogenic.No wonder you got so many cards...hope Mom gets one or two eventually too.

Wiry Wags. Eric xx
