Our hike was postponed slightly as Pumpkin and BB decided to drop by for lunch. One of Pumpkin's family members passed away this week and the viewing was today with the funeral tomorrow. This is a distant family member for Pumpkin so she is not grieving but other family members are and she is anxious to support them. I fed them leftovers and we talked a bit about funerals (this is the first one for both of them). They then changed into more appropriate attire. BB had the suit he wore to his high school prom and he has not worn it since. I think you see where this is going. He looked particularly uncomfortable as he left, especially since I had given him a rather generous helping of mac & cheese.
So our hike occurred in the afternoon. Luckily the day was cool enough that this was not a problem for Pupzilla. The trail I chose is not very hilly so that helped too.
Pupzilla waits patiently while I take her picture before we start our hike.
The beginning of the trail goes through an open field.
Pupzilla decided she needed to roll in the dried grass.
Luckily the path quickly turns wooded.
The trail goes along a lake.
Pupzilla does her version of a swim.
We walk 0n dirt.
We walk over bridges.
We walked on walkways.
Puppy got tired from so much walking but she soldiered on.
We passed big houses.
[BTW, I don't get the big house appeal. This house looks as big as some apartment buildings I've lived in. What do you do with all that space and how do you keep it clean?]
We saw wildlife
And more wildlife.
But the only flowers we saw were these little buttercups
We realized the world can be beautiful when you look at it from the top...
...or the bottom.
All hail the mighty Pupzilla.
