Perfect Fall Day (Almost)

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags!  Today is one of those rare mornings in Kansas where it's just wonderful out - low 40s and sunny.  Perfect walking weather for Sibes and bipeds!  So after Ragnar and I had breakfast, we all headed out!

"I don't really feel like doing the Colbert route today."
"I think Mom said we're doing Anneberg!"

Whew.  Those two walks start out the same, but then we cross the big street if we're doing Anneberg Park!  Ragnar was right - we crossed the street, headed through a couple housing areas, ... 

"What a sunrise!"
"The perfect Fall day!!"

... crossed another big road, then before we knew it, we were at the park!

Mom wanted to get a shot of Ragnar, Dad, and me posing by the trail marker.

Me, Dad, and Raggi

Obviously Dad didn't get the memo about not facing the camera and smiling.  Bipeds!  So hard to train!

Here we are once we hit the trail:

Me and Ragnar

You can tell how happy I am by the smile on my face, can't you?  Ragnar was smiling too.  We love that trail!

The pond had some mist on it -- you can kind of see it here:

"Watch for goose poop!"
"Goose poop is right up there with acorns, isn't it?!?"

Ragnar and I have a LOT in common!  He's such a great brother!

"Almost to the end of the trail!"
"We should do another lap!"

Ragnar really wanted to go on another loop, but Mom and Dad said not today.  Apparently, Mom had plans for us when we got home.  Plans that would turn this day from the perfect Fall day to an ALMOST perfect Fall day.

Yep.  She used the ol' Master Blaster coat-blower supreme on us!  AND brushed our lovely coats.  Egads, I didn't see that one coming!  It wasn't too bad, though.  Just don't tell our mom I said that.

Here we are, posing for treats after the fluff cycle:

"Do you have the big Zuke's or those tiny ones?"
"The 5-calorie ones ..."
"Can we do this again tomorrow, Mom?"

One of us seems to like being groomed just a tad bit more than the other.  'Nuff said!

Have a great day, everyone!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. the weather sure has been glorious, hasn't it? We all have spa days this week too. Lightning had his yesterday along with his annual vaccines, then ended up with a seizure or some weird episode last night. Here's hoping the rest of our grooming goes a lot better.

    Love seeing all your walks.

  3. You two sure had a great walk and you look very fluffy after your brushing and blow out.
