Hi Y’all!



The letter “0” on the a to z challenge falls on Barks and Bytes day.  So, since I’ve gotten caught up in, what my Human calls “big words”, I thought I’d try out the word “obedientiary” on y’all.  Hint, it’s something to which we with paws are subject. 


My photos aren’t helpful, I know…that’s ‘cause I have no sound or visual of my Human giving commands.




Now that I’ve told y’all about the word “obedientiary”, it’s time to get on to the barks!

I’m going back to last week’s “I Is for Me”

“You sure are you!! Thanks so much for joining the blog hop! I love the way you put your spin on it. :-) And love the pictures of the island but would I be wrong to think they were shot in the fall?”




Yes, I regret, you are incorrect.  This is spring in the south.  The reds you see are the little red seeds and tiny new leaves on the maples.  Various other trees offer different shades of yellow and green. Now, one week later it looks like this:

“Well now I'm confused because I thought I was me but you say I is you...does this mean we are I?”

Love the pictures, but why aren't you in the water chasing those geese? Just sayin'!




P1340440I’m ignoring the birds because my Human doesn’t want me chasing them.  I’ll stop and sit when I see a bird.  I’ve even gone up and sniffed a grouse, but I don’t chase.  



The birds know I won’t bother them, even when they’re on our lawn.  You see, here at the shore we live in a wildlife protected area. 



Y’all come back now!















  1. Great shots! I would be leery of those giant birds too!

  2. Great pix Hawk and you are so good not to chase. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. We just love all of your spring shots Hawk!! Beautiful country!

  4. Hawk, you show such restaint! I know our pups would be after those geese as soon as they could.
    Looks like a wonderful way to spend a beautiful spring day! Happy WW and have a great holiday this weekend!

  5. Wow you are way too well behaved! We don't chase geese either but as pups we did. Love all the green around your area. We just got hit with snow again last night, just north of here, over a foot. In a few days it will be 70, so spring is returning.

  6. Thanks so much for joining the hop! I am so very jealous of all of your green leaves. We are so far behind, even our Forsythias haven't bloomed yet. Those are the first to bloom for us and nothing!

  7. Good boy, Hawk! We don't chase the fowl either. Woofs from Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie

  8. Great follow up and pictures. You have a beautiful day Hawk.

  9. Great photos Hawk, love the read in those trees. ANd good for you not chasing those truly is a protected area - even from dogs!

  10. Great photos - looks like spring is in full swing there! Just a little bit jealous here.... just a little.

  11. Love the question about the redish trees. I've had photos in the woods of NC and people always ask me the same: was that this Fall? :)

  12. Thank you for joining the blog hop!! And for answering my question. I hope you understand where my confusion comes from....we've yet to see the new buds on trees here in the north. AND WOW what a difference a week makes! The island looks amazing.

    Last year I took a photo of the same branch of a tree every day until the leaf was fully formed. It was a pretty cool experiment.

  13. You are such a good boy not chasing the birds, Hawk!
    I love how green it is turning's beautiful.

  14. Wow! You sure listen good to your humans!! If my huskies were off Leash and saw birds, I'm not sure they would listen! BOL!
