Follow Up, Keeping Fit and Your Questions



Hi Y’all!



Seems like I befuddled a bunch of y’all…That’s how I feel every time I get into the car and take off with the Humans!

On “The Weather Is Broken” Sam asks, “where are you heading?” 

Molly asks “where are you Hawk?”

About “Travel is Fun” the gang at Wags and Woofs said they couldn’t tell what the bushes or trees were…





The photo above is a peach orchard where we sometimes stop this time of year. 

About my post “Do You Know Yet”?

Dina, DogMom, Sam and Slim Doggy all said they didn’t know…


About “The Weather is Broken” the browndawgs said “are you back in the mountains?”.  







Now, for Wordless Wednesday’s “Anticipation”…It wasn’t a question…but Jodi at Heart Like a Dog said “Throw the ball. Throw the ball! THROW THE BALL!! THROW. THE. BALL. NOW!!!”



Kari in Alaska asks “ is someone about to throw something?”

Not exactly…since my Human doesn’t usually have the luxury of having someone to help, I have to do a sit stay while my Human sets up bumpers.  Some she hides and some she tosses so I can see them fall and mark them in my mind. 




Once she puts all the bumpers out she returns to my side and sends me to retrieve each bumper.  She does not always want me to bring them back in the same order I saw them fall.  It’s a mentally challenging exercise.  It’s also a great way for me to exercise and still have a chance to cool off.

Remember, your dog needs to use his brain as well as his muscles to be truly fit!  Find something your friend likes and challenge him/her to more.

Now I have to be off to have some fun!



Y’all come back now!















  1. Sounds like you have great fun with mum and the bumpers Hawk. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Great follow up, Hawk! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Thanks for joining the blog hop Hawk, I thought for sure you were in the mountains too! What a great wrap up!!

    I still think she should throw the ball. :-)

  4. Wow, multiple bumpers out of order - that is a real challenge. So, not only are you FIT, you are SMART...impressive Hawk. Thanks for joining our Hop.

  5. Great that you get to play lots of retrieve games, and that your owner changes it up to keep your mind active. :-)

  6. Thanks for the clarification!

    Stop on by for a visit

  7. Wonderful fuf. Your such a ham. Have a great relaxing weekend.

  8. Fun! I agree that mental games are needed just as much as physical ones. BTW, I love Jodi's comment. :D

  9. Oh, a peach orchard! Cool!
    that is quite a challenging game you play, Hawk, I think you have to be really smart to do well at that one. Great job!
