Because You Never Know!

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Maggie and I took Mom on a nice, long walk this morning.  It was a walk like any other, full of squirrels, other pups, hills, and ... well, brace yourselves!  Just near the top of one of the hills we always go up, we saw something so mystifying, so out of place, so out of the ordinary that ... well ... here's a video.  (Not for the faint of heart or perhaps puppies and kit-cats under the age of 6 months.  Or bipeds with coffee in their mouths.)

Whew! Talk about a close call! What was it DOING there?!!? It's never been there before.

"The world's a safer place with us on the job!"
"I don't think that hose caddy will mess with anyone EVER!"

Just the beginning of our walk, and already a great success!!!

Oh, right. Isn't the sky cool-looking? Check it out:


There were storms in the area, but not right where we live.

We walked on the Hudson Trail for a while and did this:

"Over, under..."
"...twist and around!"

It was our way to celebrate keeping the world safe from errant hose caddies.

When we got home, Mom wanted us to pose in front of the ornamental grasses by the driveway.  We were still feeling mighty proud from our encounter with the hose caddy, so we obliged.

"How's this, Mom?"
"I think we deserve a reward!"
"Oooooh, I smell a cool breeze from those storms!"
"I smell treats in Mom's pocket!"
"How 'bout some treats for saving the free world earlier, Mom?"
"Oooh!  What Maggie said!"

Who could resist those faces?  Not our mom, fortunately!  We were duly rewarded for our heroic efforts - and I rewarded Mom with this:

Proud hero of the free world!

Maggie is a proud hero of the free world, too, but she had her face buried in the Purple Love Grass when Mom snapped that shot.

Rest easy, everyone!  We are on the job!



  1. Oh, you two are too funny! You remind me of my pal Bentley...he always barked at things that seemed out of place! BOL You both look like you thoroughly enjoyed that walk!

  2. That caddy was just.. WRONG! We hope it's thoroughly ashamed of itself now. Y'all did such a wonderful job guarding the world. Thank you so much!

  3. MOLMOLMOL My mom agrees with you two. Those hose caddies are sneaky and evidently sprout legs in the cover of dark.
    Mom didn't know Dad have moved ours to the front faucet so he could water the areas where grass seed was.
    the faucet is right in front of the bedroom window. When mom raised the blinds at 6 am she caught a glimpse of a shadows at the window...
    she ::gasped:: to herself.
    hugs madi your bfff
