a mountain walk-the dog's eye-view

Went to the cabin over the Memorial Day holiday.  The Texan's grandfather bought a cabin in the Pikes Peak area in the late 1940's (?) and our family has been lucky enough to spend many summers up there. 
Don your hiking boots, grab a fishin' pole and fall in line for our hike.  I'd love to show you the sights.  The Texan found his favorite fishin' hole.

The Sprout on a rock fishin' with the ever-present, helpful fishin' dogs.
Hey,  you gotta bite GP? Sophie is lookin' interested!
Sic 'em Sophie!

Run Reba, run! Is that Roxy-Doxy in the background? Whatcha sniffin' Roxy? Is that a dead, smelly fish??!
No Doxy, no! Oh....&@#+*%$*^%!! You rolled in the smelly, dead thing! Lovely.
Hope you're proud of yourself, wiener-dog. I see a bath in your future.
Shhhh...walk very softly. The Texan has laid his head on his tackle box. Getting a little shut-eye, huh? Long walk wore you out, Texan?  Altitude gettin' to ya??
Doxy, Reba!!....don't bother the Texan....can't you see he's trying to rest?
Shhhhh....Soph! Don't kiss the Texan...he's resting. You fishin' dogs are out of control!
Where we see a resting Texan, the Sprout sees an obstacle for one of the fishin' dogs to practice her mad jumping skills.
Jump Reba, jump!! MJ and LeBron in a goldendoodle body!


Does the Texan look like a log to you? Is this any way to have a peaceful mountain nap?
Can dogs smile? You be the judge.....
There's lotsa smiles in the mountains...that's just the way it is. Hope our mountain walk made you smile today. I'll show you some other interesting mountain critters soon.
A fantastic weekend to all!

i am extremely jealous and so is chase elizabeth alexander. she has NEVER had the chance to roll in a stinky, smelly, dead fish, just dead frogs smashed in the middle of the road....ok ok....maybe a dead squirrel smashed in the middle of the road. has she ever rolled in cat poop???? hmmmmmm...not unless rolling consists of coming up to me with a " ' hi mom ' ", grin on her muzzle mouth with cat litter stuck to the whole front of it
