What To Do On A Cold, Blustery Day!

Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Ammy. Oh, what a great weekend we had. No, we didn't get snow like some of our friends did. The weather bipeds said we'd have snow showers, but I said no, that I thought we'd get slight flurries and well... flurries it was. Or were. But anyway, it did get really cold and blustery (below freezing and windy) and the obvious choice of what to do was "go for a walk"! Yea!

Mom decided Zimmie and I would go on the additional walk (all of us had already been on one in the morning). She grabbed her jacket and iPhone and we headed out. Zim and I weren't really sure where we were going at first. We got up to the area where we have some choices to make...

Maybe the Hudson Trail?

...and Zim thought maybe we were going to go to the Hudson Trail. We were in the right area - here's one of the sunflowers that marks our way:

Mom decided we'd had a hard enough frost and could head through a path in the undeveloped land! Ooooh, that's even more exciting! There are all kinds of wonderful smells in there!!!

We smelled all kinds of wonderful things like other puppies and coyotes, and we saw neat birdies like quail (had Mom been quicker with her iPhone, we would have shown you the covey of quail we flushed out!) and my favorite birdie the Killdeer! There were a few sunflowers growing along the trail, too; here's a look at one:

Mom didn't have the good camera with her, so all of these were taken with the iPhone. It's a good thing she forgot her gloves, or it would have been hard to take pictures!

Hee hee hee! Just kidding, Mom.

Anyway, as you can see from the photo above, we eventually got to where the sidewalk starts and we followed that. It weaves down a very steep hill (we had VERY much fun pulling Mom down that; how odd that she didn't take any photos!) and ends up here.

I think that's the 10th hole of the golf course beyond those "You"-waves of grain, Amber!
Oooh, those golfers must have frosty paws!

Not that kind of Frosty Paws! Hee hee hee!

We turned a bit to the left... and now you'll see exactly where we ended up!

The Kansas Ocean! The perfect place to be when it's cold and blustery! Or any other time.

Thanks for coming with us!

Ammy (and Zimmie, too!)


  1. That was the perfect wayt to spend the day! :) I bet you found tons of cool smells! I love your fluffy tails!


  2. Beautiful. I'll pass on the walk in below zero temperatures though! Indoor rough housing and fetch are enough for me when it's that cold. :D


  3. Ammy, we would always check your forecast before any of the weather bipeds! You are always right.
    We loved your walk and were so impressed that you have sunflowers along the way.
    Our mum would love that walk.
    We are glad we are not the only ones with a 'good' camera!!!
    The pics are great - what is it with these humans and their cameras?
    The iPhone sounds handy and like our little one can fit in a pocket!!!!

  4. Thanks for inviting us along! The weather looks lovely and, as always, the pics are great!


  5. What a great walk! I'll bet all that cool wind felt good in your Sibersuits, didn't it? Are your snoots worn out?

  6. It looks like a lovely walk! My guys are incredibly happy that the weather is getting cooler, even though they don't have lovely thick coats like yours.

  7. Whooooo - cold, eh? You guys have the perfect coats for a walk in the frigid air heheh! For our first rain of the season, we have a major storm! Soon, Mom will take me for a walk all battened down, whereas all I need is my coat heheh! Love your "waves of amber" and "ocean"!!! Beautiful places to walk!
    Hugs xo

    Take care and thanks always for your comments.

  21. An ocean in Kansas? COOL!

    Ooh Ammy, I am visiting for the first time and what a hansdome pair of doggies you are. I am so impressed with you (and your interesting blog). I am Pam and you kindly visited my very new recipe blog yesterday. Thanks for your kind comments. I will visit you again to see what you're up to. Love to mommy too.

  24. Look like you had a fun time! That's really cool that your mom let you pick the trail. Sometimes our mom lets us do that. We are kind of boring though and just make the normal turns of our normal route, even though she claims that she would follow us on a different path.


  25. If you send us a map to the Kansas Ocean, maybe we can drag ... uh, walk Jan that far. We doubt it. But we could try.

    Buddy, Merci & Sam

  26. Look at you two redheads on a walk together! Momma says you are very pretty dogs. I think the weather has been pure poo lately! I prefer it to be sunny and about 85.

    Hey Army Brats,
    That was a very GReat walk for a cold blustery day. We didn't know that golfers have frosty paws; we LOVE Frosty paws but only one market around Fred Vegas (Fredericksburg) carries them.
