We're Not Bored-er Collies, But We ARE Bored

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  The other morning on our walk, Mom made us stop so she could get a photo.  It wasn't enough just to get a shot of some sunflowers, NO!  She wanted us to pose in front of them.  Seriously!  This is how it went:

"Look as bored as Siberianly possible, Ragnar."
"Got it, Mags."

I mean ... interrupting the walk?  For a photo shoot?!?  And she didn't have cookies?!?!?!

What was she thinking!?

Yours sincerely,

Margaret Thatcher

Covering

 Hi everybody.  It's me, Ragnar.  I thought it was Maggie's turn to post today, but she's ... umm ...

IMG_8030MagsRagnar
"Cover for me, Raggi.  I'm pooped!"
"Uh... Maggie's busy right now..."

...   tired  working really hard right now.  Yeah.  That's it.  Busy.  Working.  Busy working.  Because we're Working Breed Dogs.

So ... how's everybody doing?

Sköl!

Serene Scenery Sunday

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Today, Maggie and I took our mom and dad on a super long walk!  It was really serene, so we thought we'd show you a bunch of highlights.  Ready to take a look?  There are a lot of pix, so I'll keep the chit-chat down.

We got to go to Anneberg Park again!  Isn't that great?!?  We love walking the Perimeter Trail:

  We got Mom to shoot some video! Take a look!

When we got to the clearing, we paused to enjoy the sunrise!

Much to our delight, we got to cross the bridge when we came to it today!  This adds probably a couple more miles to the route, and Mags and I just love it!

Here's an action shot of us on that "spur" beyond the bridge.

Dad held our leashes so Mom could get a shot of us with the sunrise in the background:

When we're in crosswalks, we focus on safety!  SAFETY FIRST, right!?!

Here's another cool action shot:

Lastly, here we are on the big road, heading back toward the park.

"Too bad it's not a purple haze; I'd do my Jimi Hendrix impression for you, Ragnar!"
"I love that song!"

It was a great walk, and left all of us feeling nice and serene!  We hope all of you are enjoying your Sunday!

Sköl!

Checking The Ol' Trippy-Trap!!!

 Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  We had another GREAT walk this morning.  This is the best photo of the bunch:

"This side is clear, Ragnar!"
"I'm still checking for Trolls on the right, Mags."

We ALWAYS have to check for Trolls - or even those Billy Goat guys - on the Trippy Trap Bridge. Because you just. Never. Know. 

Yours sincerely,

Walk And A Question

Hi everybody. It's me, Ragnar. This morning, we left super early on our walk. It was still dark and Mom couldn't get any clear photos. When we got up into the hills, the sun had come up -- take a look at how pretty it was!

It was nice and cool, so we took a good, long walk. Actually, we did that all Summer long, but it was a lot more pleasant today! When we started our downhill descent, Maggie started looking at me in a certain way ... so ... 


IMG_7946MagsRagnarWalk
🎵"Oh, Ragnar!!!"🎵
"Maggie ... are you going to BOOM me?"

She said she was going to, but since Mom and Dad were onto her, she decided not to. Besides, there was a car coming and we have a big SAFETY FIRST focus around here. Whew.  

Instead of going the most direct route home, we headed back up the big street -- here's another look at the sunrise:

What a great walk! 

 Sköl! 
Ragnar 

PS: We had plenty of BOOM! action once we got home!

Evening Shift

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Yesterday evening, after dinner, we took Mom out on the deck for a little fresh air.  She had a treat with her, so we got right to work giving her what she wanted:

IMG_7861MagsRagnarDeck
"Hey, Mom.  Got treats?"
"Oooh.  It's the Zuke's, Maggie!"

After that, we thought we were off-duty and could relax. so ...

IMG_7864RagnarMagsDeckPlay
"BOOM!"
"BOOM!"

We were into full relaxation mode, when Ragnar and I sensed someone down on the sidewalk on the other side of the field!

IMG_7866RagnarMagsAlert
"Alert, Mags!  Alert!"
"Got 'em in my sights, Raggi!"
IMG_7869RagnarMagsAlert
"Hi, Mom!  Look - we're on the job!"
"Focus, Ragnar!  Focus!"
IMG_7870RagnarMagsAlert
"Right.  Sorry, Mags."
"It's OK, Ragnar.  I understand."

After that, we saw a bunny hop into Tao's yard next door, so we did what any self-respecting Siberians would do:

IMG_7886MagsRagnarAlert
"Bunny!"
"Bunny!"

That's right!  We sat and stared at him silently.  It's what we do.

I had no idea Ragnar and I would end up working the evening shift! Fear not! We're Working Breed pups, and we thrive on this sort of thing! 

Yours sincerely, 

Margaret Thatcher
