Thankful For Nature Walkies...I think

 This week,  Mama took me on my very first walk at Arcata Marsh! I had a blast walking on the trails and trying to chase listening to the little tweety birds!

 I met this little guy along the trail...

 Mama says he is just your basic, everyday slug and not tasty at all. So I decided not to eat him...I did get a little lick in though, boy was he slimy!

 Mama tried to get me to pose in front of these pretty lupines...but guess what she forgot?
Yep, no cookies...and we all know the motto right??
"No cookie, no lookie!"
I did smile for her though, cause you know...she might stop by the cookie place on the way home, right?

 Then I came across this SCARY thing!!! Mama says it is a feather...I say it is EVIL and should be avoided at all costs!!

 Then things got REAL scary....this BIG GIGANTIC DUCK jumped out in front of me!! Mama thought I might go all barky on him...Not me, I am a good girl and tried to hide behind Mama didn't bark at all!

Mama directed a little video of my walk and scary encounters

You can also watch it HERE on YouTube

Thanks for joining me for my fun Nature Walkie today!
Mama and I are thankful we live in a beautiful part of the USA that is full of all kind of places for nature adventures! 
OH, and we are also thankful for the cookie place, where we are going now....Right Mama??

 We are joining Brian for the 
Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

    Rosy, I think you did remarkably well for your first ever nature walk! It's a bit, shifty world out there. One step at a time and it gets less and less troublesome and more and more awesome! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. What a beautiful walk for you, Rosy - but feathers aren't scary. To us, that would mean a hello from Dory and Bilbo at Rainbow Bridge and the feather would makes us smile.

  3. Those slug things are nasty. We don't have them around here, but they were all over the place in Germany. Super creepy stuff! Happy trails!

  4. help, I am laughing and I can't type... that video is histerical. you are so sweet and funny and adorable... if I had time I would watch it a second time.

  5. Hi Rosy. I am glad you survived your first nature walk. You're right, that feather looks like it is just waiting to attack you. You can't be too careful. That slug looked pretty tasty, even if your Mama said it wasn't. Your puppy friend, Xena

  6. That is some big slug sweet Rosy! Hey, I'd gladly take that feather for you! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  7. It looks like you had fun on your nature walk. That feather does look a bit scary and you are right to stay away from the ducks with their pointy beaks.

  8. I will go with you on your next nature walk and dine on -- I mean protect you from all the scary birds.


  9. Well I personally would have tried to eat that feather, and mom would have gotten all aggravated about it. Your walk looked really nice though ..you are such a cutie pie. Mags and Gus

  10. Rosy I'm so sorry be we 2 seniors LOL/MOL at the video OMCs...that one needs to be mailed to America's Funniest.
    Thank goodness the wind didn't blow that feather I think you might jumped onto your mama's head and the duck...they can be evil too
    Hugs Aunty Madi

  11. Oh I love nature walkies too Rosy. But cookies are an absolute must. Especially after so many scary encounters.
    Toodle pip!

  12. I loooooove feathers! Especially if they are attached to a little tweetie bird...

  13. Oh my goodness Rosy! you are lucky that that feather did not bite you! BOL!

  14. "No cookies, no lookies" is new to me. It explains a lot! I love the video. I thought that the music was absolutely perfect. It was interesting to watch Rosy's body language when each scary thing appeared. She'll learn fast!

  15. Hope you got that cookie, Rosy. what a fun walk! You are a very smart girl to be careful around that evil feather and that curious duck!!!

  16. Wait, feathers and ducks are scary, but you lick a creepy looking slug?? That doesn't seem right to us! LOL
