Walk This Way

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie!  Yesterday morning, bright and early, Maggie and I took Mom on a nice walk, just like always.  Only, when we got to this one corner, Mom wanted to go straight and I said, "No, I want to go right."  We all know who wins the battle of wills around here.

"Oooh, cool!  I didn't think we were going this way today!"
"Walk this way, Mom!"
"Sigh.  Got it, Cam."

It was very enjoyable. And when we got to where we'd normally turn right or left, I said, "No, let's walk this way!" and so we kept going up the hill. That led us to this pretty view:

"Look at THAT, Mags!"
"Wowzers!!!"

Neither of us girls had been there before, but Zim had told me about it -- it's Jellystone Park!!! Isn't that exciting!?!  Sadly, neither Yogi nor BooBoo were anywhere in sight.

After we watched Old Faithful for a bit, we headed back to the big road and crossed at the light. It's really fast, so no dilly-dallying!

"Hustle up, Mom!"
"Hurry, everyone!  Hurry!"

By this time, Mom had turned choosing the route over to me completely. I opted to walk behind the Fire House.

"We haven't gone this way in quite a while!"
"I know!  Isn't this great?!?"

As you can see, there is a nice trail back there.

Once we got around this bend ...

... we saw a fireman out having a cup of coffee. No photos of him, but he was very polite and said we were, too. (For the record, I'm fairly certain he meant me and Maggie.)

It was a great walk - and I loved choosing the route! Do you ever get to pick where you go?

Cammie!

  1. Sadly, our pups are not in charge of our walks. Their idea of fun includes dragging us through mud, brambles and (back in AZ) cactus...

  7. Ciara always wants to go on the trail and Lightning hates the trail because of all the bikers. So Mom has to let us take turns deciding which way to go. We must admit that you chose a very attractive route:)

Anyhu, you gurls have the bestest wide sidewalks to take your walkies on! I am so jealous!

  12. Mom and dad always choose which direction we walk in, which is pretty much the same route every day. You girls are sure lucky!

  13. What a grreat walk! Your momma should definitely let you pick the route more often. We usually take the same routes, but sometimes Momma will let us choose if we're real enthusiastic -- or real tired!

  15. Hey Cammie nice choice of walk. I'm often allowed to choose the walk. Kyra never does because she always walks at the back. Hu'mum says Rita will never be allowed to choose because hu'mum would be on her hands and knees scrambling up embankments BOL
