Long Road March

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  We had a wild, crazy storm during the night that brought us a much cooler morning today.  To celebrate, Maggie and I decided to take Mom and Dad on a super-long road march today!

We headed up into the hills:

"Check those skies, Ragnar!"
"I'm glad Mom and Dad looked at the radar before we left!"

And then went way down the big road:

Sorry it's blurry and crooked; we were moving out smartly!

Mom always likes to stop and shoot wildflowers along the way. Here's one of her shots:

Black-Eyed Susans

We usually turn at this one road, but today we decided to keep going!  We turned eventually and saw these hugs gates:

"Check it out, Ragnar.  The 'M' is for Mags!"

She was joking with me.  I kinda thought so.  She actually hadn't walked that way before, either.  It was fun exploring a place that was new to both of us!

Mom wanted to get a shot of us so I did a nice pose for her:

"Hey, puppies!!!"
"Hi, Mom!!!"
"Hey, Mom.  Check it out -- Daisies!"

Maggie reminded me we shouldn't always look at Mom when she asks us to.  I told her I'd try to remember.  Maggie knows these things!

Anyway - since Mags pointed them out ...


There were lots of great smells up in that area; we really had a blast.

We finally looped around near the golf course clubhouse, and we were back on familiar turf.  Golf course ... turf ... good one, huh?

Me, leading the way!  Gnarly skies, huh?

When we finally reached the "it's all downhill from here" point, Mom held our leashes while Dad made a deposit in a nearby trashcan.  You know.  I mean ... yeah.  We all know what he was putting in there, right?  OK.

Anyway, Mom asked us to sit together and pose for her again.  Remembering what Mags told me earlier ...

"Oh, Ragnar!  I'm so proud of you!"
"Thanks, Maggie!"

Then Mom gave a sad, "Oh, you GUYS!  Please!?!"  Since she asked so nicely ...

"Just this once.  But you owe us!"
"Hi, Mom!!!"
"Such good puppies!!!!"

And then down a couple hills and we were home!  That was our nice, long road march!  It was tons of fun.  Thanks for coming with us!
