Sunday trail walk

Hi everyone. Sorry for the long break--Mom has been too busy to download photos. The real reason is that all the crime shows are back on... Everyone knows that Law and Order and CSI would be so much more interesting if there were a bloodhound in the mix. But then the criminals would be caught in no time, leaving the networks with no substance for the shows.

I was most impressed to see the pics of Wimsey on Park Avenue. What a busy week our handsome Wimsey had!

Anyway, last Sunday we met with our friend George the lab and his human, Tanja, and went for a nice walk along one of the trails in the area. It was a beautiful day and a great day for sniffing. Lots of critter smells. The experience proved yet again that it's impossible to get a non-blurry photo of a lab. Case in point:

Anyway, we trailed for about an hour.
Here we are looking rather noble:

We hounds just want to keep trailing... while the humans want photos.

I must admit, George the lab has a pretty good nose on him (for a lab). He's a year older than I am but did really well on the walk.

No trail walks this weekend. We went to the park in the pouring rain today--I was not amused. I wore my coat but my head and ears were dripping by the time we got home. Hope it stops soon. I'd rather have snow, like Gus and Bentley.

Any trail is good. We love em.

P.S. - This week on Law & Order. A crime occurs. Detective makes bad joke and arrests wrong guy. D.A.'s prosecute until they discover right guy to go after and then they talk about it on way to elevator.

Oh, goodness, yes...those labs can be tough to photograph as well. My canine brother Beau is more likely to obey the command to sit and stay for a picture, but action pictures...yes, he can be a blur.

Labs don't understand trailing so well, do they? You mentioned once that they are slow about it. Well, I must say that I've had the misfortune to run smack into the east end of a lab heading west a time or two. Beau will be ahead, sniffing along the tree line and he'll just stop! Silly thing!

Edie is extremely impressed to see one human holding two hound leashes! Either you are very strong... or an accident waiting to happen!

Our weather is turning very cold. No rain for us, just snow. Will try to send cool, rain-free weather your way soon!

Looks like a fine romp through the woods!
