What do you see?  
by the LLB Gang

Looking up in the canyon and what do I see?

A great big owl looking down on me.

Wait, what's that? A monster up on the right?

Eeek! Oh boy, that gave me a fright!

 Wow, way up in the center, who could it be?

Looks like ET has come down to see me!

See for yourself, give it a look-see

What do you spy? Go ahead, tell me!

Show us your nature! It can be flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey! Any kind of nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.


Thankful for Firefighters

As you have probably heard, 2020 has been another bad year for wildfires here in California. This year Northern California has been hit particularly hard. Today, we are very thankful to firefighters from all over the country and the world,who have come together with our local Cal Fire heroes to fight these fires.

   Mama says, although the smoke makes all the pictures a soft pretty pink,  it's not worth the headaches, sinus problems and  breathing difficulties. Not to mention, we can't go for daily walks when it's smoky!


Here is a picture of the smoky rest area where Mama and I stopped to do this photo shoot. Just two weeks ago, the rest area was threatened by a fire that started about 10 miles down the highway. Thanks so much to the firefighters who quickly got the fire contained and extinguished. They kept it from spreading through two towns and burning down so much beautiful forest land!

We are safe on the coast, where we rarely see flames.   During the past couple of weeks though,  we had more than a few days of unhealthy  air quality. In fact, we've seen friends all over Blogville(and the US) who have been seeing smoky air!  
We are so thankful to the fire fighters for risking their lives and doing their best to contain the fires and clear up the air.

Happy First Day of Fall

The leaves are turning and there is a chilly nip in the morning air....

Happy Fall Y'all!!



We are joining our friends at  Comedy Plus for the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop this week!



Below the Rim

Rosy: Wait a minute, didn't Daddy hike below the rim too??

Jakey: Yeah, he did...but he got our permission to go and hike with Murphy and Stanley's Daddy.  Mama just grabbed her camera and snuck out of the wheelie house to join Aunty C!! 

Sunny: I could have sworn I heard her say she was leaving Jakey, you must not have heard her!

Rosy: Ok, you two! The thing is, dogs aren't allowed in the actual "canyon" part of Bryce Canyon. This year, Aunty C talked Mama into doing the hike into the canyon and, as you might imagine, she took lots and lots of pictures. Being the good girl that I am,  I agreed we would let her share this week and again next week on Nature Friday!

 There sure is a bunch of pretty red lumps and bumps in the canyon...and look at the little tree!
How pawesome, Mama found some Angel Greta flowers!!

The green of the tree sure is pretty against the red rocks

 WOW....look how big this part of the canyon is!!

 Look Sunny, those are people at the bottom of that HUMUNGOUS canyon!



 Jakey: I don't know....I still don't think Mama had my permission to go!
Rosy: Shush Jakey and look at the pretty pictures!

 Another tall tree in the canyon.....

It's nice to see the blue skies after all the smoke we drove through to get here, isn't it you two? Look how pretty the sky was above the canyon, hardly a cloud in site!!

Look at all those trees down there. It's like a forest is growing in the canyon!

In fact, we'll get into more of the specifics next week, but Mama says she thinks that IS a (Dixie or Bryce) Forest down there!

Mama sure did get to see some beautimous views!!


Rosy: Now, on behalf of every puppy here Mama, I do believe we are owned a WHOLE BUNCH of rewards for being so nice and letting you go on your hike Below the Rim!!!

Show us your nature.  Flowers, your current weather, a scene out of your window, or maybe a picture from a vacation, walk or other journey, any nature picture will do! If you don't see a link below, click HERE  to go to our Hoppity Page.


Thankful for Adventure!

 We are so thankful we got to go on such a fun road trip last week, it was full of fun and adventure!


This wheelie house was bigger than the last one we rented and there was plenty of room to spread out!

Sunny and I shared the big bed...
Jakey really wanted to drive, but Daddy said his name wasn't on the rental agreement..BOL! Most of the time, he sat with Mama!

The thing we were most thankful for about the wheelie house was, at the end a long day driving, we could just turn off the engine and relax together!!
Here's a short video Mama put together of our time on the road!!
