I may have to put Mom back on warning (we went on a hike today, and due to a little mis-communication, Mom didn't bring the camera) as I met some Really Big Dogs (note from Fi's Mom: they were horses) - I even got snooter-to-snooter with one of them, and Mom didn't get any pictures. *sheesh* But, we know where they live, and I hope I can go see them again. (Assuming that we can find a path to the horses that doesn't involve barbed wire - don't worry, no accidents - and burrs.... Otherwise, we may have to seek out other horses.)
However, I'm not ready to fire Mom yet, because she and Dad have been taking me hiking almost every day; and decent hikes, too. 4-5 miles every time, and Dad says we'll probably start going on longer hikes. I like the hikes because the scenery is great, and I feel Very Sleepy in the evenings. Which may be part of Mom and Dad's Plan. But that's okay, because any day that includes hiking and napping is a Good Day in my book.
Today Mom took Mr. Bufus to the vet for a follow-up on his bladder infection, and he has been declared "all better". Not that it was life-threatening or anything, but I know that he's glad that he doesn't have to take those icky anti-biotics any more!
Mom say that tomorrow we are going to go to a totally new place to hike, but here are some pictures from a hike we did yesterday; it was the same place as the last pictures, but we went further, and it is Really Pretty there!
I prefer the up-hill side of the trail! ;-)
Perfect water break - my servant gives me water, and we've got a great backdrop to boot!
I don't know why this picture prompts Mom to say, "You are such a Retriever!" Just because I like to pick up sticks here and there....
Livin' life on the edge!
Again, we are going someplace totally new tomorrow - not that I don't like this hike, but I can't wait to see more of this scenery stuff!
BTW, Mom wants to apologize for not helping me keep up with bloggies; she has been working on Christmas presents for people, and that has cut down on my bloggie-reading time. She tries to catch up here and there, but you all type so much! ;-)
Here is one of the presents she has finished. She's got piles more to do, though!
-Fiona, The Intrepid (I don't know what that means, exactly, but Mom and Dad say that whenever they take me on these hikes!)
