A Nice Long One!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  Yesterday, I took Dad on a nice walk early in the morning, then after breakfast, Cam said she was ready to go on one.  Awesome!  Mom hooked us up and we headed out.

"We should have worn our sunglasses, Mags!"
"It was dark when Dad and I walked."
"Do you two know where you're going?  I can't see."

We went up and down some hills then got to where we could make a decision -- take the trail to the right? Or take the trail to the left?

"What do you think, Cam?"
"Let's go left!"

Left is longer, but Cam knows that. As long as she was good with it, Mom was good with it!

"Great choice!  There's always something interesting down here!"
"Keep your eyes peeled!"

And just like that ...


Mom had us wait there until the squirrel jumped into a tree. I have no idea why.

"At least we saw one!"
"Right you are, Cam-a-roo!"

THEN ... instead of making a turn that would have been the shorter way home, Cam wanted to go this way:

"Hey!  It's your hill, Cam!"
"It's my very favorite hill to go up!"

Cam loves going up that hill from the other direction!  Here we are at the bottom:

"What do you think, Cam?"
"Let's go left, and head up the steep road!"

Just beyond that white house is the Kansas Ocean, by the way!

Anyway, we turned then headed up the hill like Cam wanted to do.  Mom couldn't believe she chose the route she did, but Cam was doing awesome!  Near the top, Mom got us to stop and pose for a minute:

Cam and me

Truth be told, I think Mom just wanted to stop and catch her breath, but you didn't hear me say that!

A little bit more of a climb, a turn or two, then we were on the downhill side:

"It's all downhill now, Mom!"
"What an awesome walk!  I feel great!"

It was really great!  Cam's route was 1.86 miles and she had plenty of energy the rest of the day!  We're so proud of her!!!  It felt great to get out on a nice, long one!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  5. Way to go Cammie! We're glad to hear you are feeling up to such a nice walk.

  6. Yay for Cam - we think it has a lot to do with the great care you both get from your peeps!!! And it helped that it was such a beautiful day. We try to go on long walks but we seem to do a lot of stopping with SomePup who really does not like his Gentle Leader:(
