Hit The Trail With the Boys, Part I

Woo, everypup and everycat! It's me - Dave. Did you all see Zim's post yesterday and how he said he needed to store up some energy for a Monday afternoon adventure? Well, he did get to go on one - and I went, too!

I was all excited when Mom called us both; I couldn't wait to see where we were going! We started walking our normal morning route...

I wonder where we're going, Zim!

...and we kept on going until we saw this!

Me, checking the sign post

Oh, pup! The Hudson Trail! Zimmie and I couldn't wait to smell all the cool smells on the trail and Mom couldn't wait to take more pix of the wildflowers! Remember the Jerusalem Artichokes we showed you on Sunday? They were right by the trail marker. Well... they're gone now! No blooms at all! (See photo above.) Mom was disappointed, but not me. There were all kinds of messages left there for me and Zim! Ha woo!

Oh, don't worry about Mom! We saw lots of sunflowers like this one on the way there, so she was a happy hiker:

Here we are, about to head down the part of the trail we showed you the other day:

It's always nice and shady and cool on the trail, plus great smells, usually squirrels busy gathering nuts and doing other squirrel stuff, and all kinds of cool things to smell and see.

Mom liked these berries:

They weren't there the other day! Things come and go fast this time of the year!

Speaking of fast, before we knew it we were at the end of that part of the trail. We crossed the street and I thought we were going to turn like we did last time - but Mom said, "Let's cross and go down the next part of the trail!" She didn't need to tell us twice!

C'mon, Dave! Let's go!

That part of the trail isn't paved, so we only get to go on it when we have dry conditions. Something about mud... paw prints... messy Siberians... I'm not sure. Plus it was cool out, so we weren't too hot or anything!

We have more pix to share with you from the rest of the walk. We'll get those posted Thursday, I think. Storm said she and Ammy are doing Wordless Wednesday together tomorrow! Woo! Be sure to tune back in!

Thanks for hitting the trail with us!


  1. Looks like a wonderful and beautiful walk to me! Glad you had fun and enjoyed it!!!

  2. What great walkies - we love off road hiking - it is the best - and the messier the better - mommy gave up a long time ago - Sweetie is a very messy girl and brings mud back into the house all the time

  3. Hi Dave and Zim,

    Beautiful photos and great trail. The sunflowers and berry photos are also very pretty. Scrappy is wondering if he can eat some of those berries please.

    We look forward to your walks so thanks for sharing them all the time.

    - Fudgie, Princess & the Piappies

  4. Very good walkings! That is a nice little park with a seement walkway. Sometimes on Nature Trails you just have to walk on what nature provides!


  5. Yeah, what is up with the mud thing? Mom won't take me hiking on the trails after it rains - I don't get it! Great pics!!!

    *kissey face*

  6. Love this hike! And would love to have gone with you - what purty flowers and berries! But what a shame about the Jerusalem Artichokes! Mom likes those a lot! Look forward to Thurs. for Part II!
    Hugs xo

  7. That looked like a great hike with lots of good smells!
    We cannot understand why humans don't like mud - we find it very relaxing - especially if you get the chance of a nice roll in it.
    Our mum was loving the sunflowers as always.
    We met a siberian husky when we were up north!
    Of course we immediately thought of you guys, well and Kira & Khyra, but we thought about you all............
    love you lots
    Martha & Bailey xxxx

  8. WOW, what a fun walkie Dave!!!

  12. Nice trail for you two. We got to go on another bike riding/walk with the biggest grandbiped again today.

    Woos, the OP Pack

  13. Great walk boys! How lucky! I really liked the berries, they kinda remind me of Krispmas!

  14. Happy trairrrrls to you, until we meet again! la,la,la! OMD!...Riley, stick to dance'n!


  15. Thank you for sharing your hike with me! Lovely places you walk in, although I would have liked some muddy photos, mud is so restful and sooothing to the soul - I think.

    The sunflowers looked beauteous, but I liked the pics of you two best of all.

    Your new pal,

    The Profound Hound ;0D

    I am a mystery. But a benevolent one. oK?

  16. What a fun trail for walkies! We love the pretty flowers, especially the sunflowers!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  17. A lovely place to hike. So many new things to sniff and see.

  18. What exactly is wrong with mud - paw prints - messy Siberians? That pretty well describes us on a GOOD day.

  19. What a great adventure boys. Davy, was that you first time on the trail with Zimmie?


  20. Just a couple of pals out exploring nature. Sounds like a good time to me.


  21. It was fun going on the trail with you boys today! Dirt-trailing is the best isn't it? Feeling the dirt between your paws and all. I don't get to feel the mud between my paws either. Mom's are spoil sports.


  22. omdog those berries looked so perfect we didn't think they were real!! amazing!

  23. Hi, Dave!
    You two and your Mom had a pawesome walkie! Nice flowers and interesting smellings!
    Kisses and hugs

  24. Wow..dat sure looks like a great walk! The berries are soo tempting..
    Can't wait for Part 2!!


  25. Hey GUYS,
    Di y'all sing "Happy Trails To Woo" while you were hiking. It would have been very appropriate. How come the Hudson Trail is in Kansas? Hudson Bay isn't in Kansas. The Hudson River isn't in Kansas either. What gives?

  26. What a wonderful walkie!

    Wags and Licks,
    Mollie & Bobo

  27. What a fun time you had on your walk! Glad you got to explore. :)


  28. I wish we had a cool walking trail like that by our house. You all are very lucky pups!!

    Love the berry photo! Gorgeous!

    Sillies! Siberians are NEVER messy... errr... if they are... they somehow magically clean up fast... at least mine does... to avoid the "B" word!

  30. We really enjoyed walking that trail with you. We wish we could have 'safe & Dog-friendly' trails here. Every outing here is fraught with mom worrying about all sorts of safety issues. Thank you for sharing your walk...wish we could be with you.

  31. Dave, what a great walkie! We can't wait to see more pictures.


    Pee Ess: I sure like 'em taller, like you; and I think blue-eyed = YUMMY!!!!

  32. What a great place to hike. I'll bet there are a million smells along the way!

    a-roos to yous,
    Jack a-roo

  33. Looks like a great time! I can't imagine you getting muddy... I've never seen a husky be muddy or messy...

  34. I bet there are lots of great smells there! What a great adventure! :)


  35. I knew it! Zimmie always gets to go on the adventures, he just rotates the other lucky pup who gets to go with him. I guess that's why he's Zimmie Mawson, Explorer Sibe.
