A Walk In The Woods

Hello Everypup,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had a relaxing Saturday but yesterday we all decided to take a walk in the woods. It was great, lots to explore and sniff at.

Ready for the off..

Come on Dad, I'll pull you up!!

Finally ditched the leash!

Now for some sniffing around!!

Ooooh Sunshine!!

Stop making me stop to pose Mum!!.. there are things to sniff!!

Even the Beans are having fun!!

This critter looked crunchy, but Mum wouldn't let me eat it!!

Time for a quick shake

Having a rest!

Hey!! Where did the little beans go??

they found a tree to climb into!!

That looks like fun! I think I will climb in too!!

Woah!! It's a long way down!!

Dad to the rescue!!

I smell critters!!

Lemme at em!!

I'm going in!!

Anyone home??

What do you mean I need a bath??

They never did let me off the leash near that hole! Grrrrrr!! They really are spoilsports!!

Ben xxxxx

You are so brave to climb that tree! Did you dig the hole yourself?

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Ben

We think that was mean not letting you be off lead at the hole. There could have been something really interesting down there!

Aww! Ben if I knew it was you at the door of my hole I would have asked you in for tea.

Looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Those Beans sure are cute... We are so glad that you kept your eye on them..
We saw a couple of Rotti's at the lake on Saturday. They were swimming in the water. They looked like they were having so much fun..

Tasha & Eva said...

Oh No, your pictures reminded Momma that she forgot to give me my bath yesterday. I wanted ask if your momma ordered you the Doggles with flames like mine or skulls like Tasha's?

I hope it is OK if we add your blog to our list of links.

Arabella said...

That's a pretty neat forest. It must've been exciting to find such a big hole. I have to dig all my own holes.


Wow looks like you had a great walk in the woods!. You had your nose to the ground just about as much as a beagle there!

Thor said...
