Who We Are

Tuesday, April 13, 2021


Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  We always find something interesting when we walk to The Top Of The World - and today was no exception!

When we got to the trail, we had a beautiful sunrise:

"Check it out, Ragnar!"

 When we got up to the top, it was even prettier:

Sunrise over Manhattan - and a Redbud Tree

Mags and I noticed people and dogs down below, so we stared at them:

"We're going to need to choose our path down carefully, so we can avoid them."
"Yeah.  All those dogs have their owners off-lead."

But the most interesting part came when we were heading back. We saw these two guys get some stuff out of there truck, then start down the trail.  They were firemen, carrying dummies.  One had an adult and the other one was carrying a pack of babies.  We. Were. Fascinated!

"Hey!  Hey, mister!  Where are you going?  Whatcha got there?"
"Can we help?  Hey, come back!  Whatcha doing?!?"

We were going to ask "Where's the fire?" since they rushed off, but that would have been a bit too cliché. We ran into them a couple times on the trail; each time, they had fewer dummies.  Needless to say, it was VERY interesting!


 PS:  Our local fire department has a Lab who works there.  Mom and Dad think the men were probably  hiding the dummies for him to find as a training exercise.  Or it was a bizarre scavenger hunt.  We just don't know!


  1. How fun was that walk!? Maybe the firemen were carrying the dummies for exercise since they might have to carry a person out of a burning building. We just hope they traded off dummies so one guy didn't have only the little babies to carry.

  2. What a FABulous walkie guys! I would looooves to find some dummies! The only one I find is on the other end of my leash....🤣😂😂
