Lots to Bark About Today!!!


Hi Y’all!



Today I’m joining Thursday’s Barks and Bytes Blog Hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Heart Like a Dog.

I’m also linkin’ up with Ruckus the Eskie and Love is Being Owned by a Husky in Thoughtless Thursday.


I’m startin’ off with last weeks Barks

Emma said...

I hope you don't every destroy your green toy! What would you do then? Mom knows a Chessie lady here and we have seen some at nose work tests. You are sort of like curly retrievers, but then again not. Always love your "out in nature" photos.


Don’t worry, it’s a Kong toy!  Besides I’m a well behaved senior now and don’t chew as hard or as much on my toys as I did as a young fellow!

Now, on to the BIG question y’all want answered!



Molly The Wally said...

Where did you go Hawk? We love the lilies and the colours are so vibrant. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Emma said...

It this a cliff hanger post??? Where did you go? We have some lilies in our yard, they are quite pretty. Happy Friday!


Murphy said...

Yes, where did you go? Great pics!
Your Pals,

Talent Hounds said...

Love these photos, where are they from?



Yep!  I’m back home at the shore!  The weather, for this time of year in the south, is cool…like 90’s.  The cold front means it’ll be high 80’s.  Not too shabby!

The breezes off the water keeps it feelin’ quite comfy if your just out for a walk. 



Now, on to Sepia Saturday’s post

easyweimaraner said...

Is that the bridge over troubled water of that song? have a wonderful summer-saturday!


You could say it’s the bridge over troubled waters ‘cause gators and snakes have been spotted in the area.

My regular readers know my Humans are very vigilant when we’re walkin’ along any waterfront path. 


Sunday’s close up, Do You See What I See? drew these questions…

Sam said...

What are you looking at, Hawk?
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Monty and Harlow

SlimDoggy said...

Tried to see in the reflection in your eyes...but too small...what's up Hawk?

MyDog Likes said...

Look at those beautiful eyes!!! I would love to know what you are looking at!

Oz theTerrier said...

Unless you see your own eyeball then I do not think I see what you see, Hawk! I hope you had a pawtastic weekend, my pal!

Tenacious Little Terrier said...

Squirrel? Rabbit?

JoAnn Stancer said...

I see some trees I think in your eyes. What a beautiful picture. Have a great Sunday.

Jenna,Mark Drady said...

I see an eye!

The truth is I see some trees and some marsh grass but not what I’m straining to see…



I heard the back door close and I think I hear my Human Papa comin’ to join us, but the grass is too high to see him!



Now lets look at some of the questions from Mischief Monday’s post



easyweimaraner said...

you better should eat that squirrel than the figs. we have a fig tree too, but one without figs and without squirrels... maybe we should exchange our trees? I hope you FIGured out that problem in your tummy and all is ok. Have you chased away the two intruders?

Harleo - Adventures of Two Golden Doodles said...

Whoa - you were busy this week weren't you? Can't wait to see what you're working on for next week BOL

Dory and the Mama said...

So much mischief and so little time, right Hawk??
Dory, Jakey, Arty and Bilbo




As for the intruders, I just raced out and both dogs stopped.  We circled, sniffed, recognized each other, then I returned to the Human who gave me a pat, no treat.  Evidently I didn’t respond to Human’s command quickly enough. 

As for eating the squirrel instead…my Human won’t even let me chase ‘em! 


Murphy said...

We never saw a fig tree in our life! Thanks for the FFHT shout out. There is a more current badge you can opy off our bloggy that says "Last Friday of the month". Hope you can tell your story next month!!
Your Pals,
Murphy & Stanley





Finally, we have yesterday’s post

Shiloh-Lord of the Manor an'Diva Shasta




I’m doin’ great!  How ‘bout y’all? 


Sam said...

Oh pretty! What kind of flowers are in the first picture?

Monty and Harlow




Ah, those are some kind of a lily growing on, or out of the rocks below our house.  Butterflies love it!  


Oz theTerrier said...

Uh, that a bumper that looks like a tail or do you actually have someone's tail in your mouth? :-O I love all the butterflies...WOW! So many! Thank you for sharing your world, my friend.




Ah, it’s a squeaky log with a coon tail…coon hidin’ in a log!  It’s a favorite that is usually the last retrieve when I’m training.  My Human uses it as a reward.  My Human doesn’t recall where she got it, or the manufacturer.

easyweimaraner asks...

Mother Nature is an artist, that's beautiful! Are that nuts in the tree?







Not sure which tree you’re asking about.  The top is a cypress bearing it’s seeds.  These cypress, unlike Leyland cypress, are deciduous.  The seeds are called cones.  There are multiple seeds.  There are several kinds of deciduous cypress.  The ones you usually recognize are the bald cypress with the knees, many of which you will see in photos of me on our beach walk.  I’m walking past an obvious one in this photo…



You can see lots of smaller ones around me and one peeking out of the water behind me, just at the end of my tail.




Murphy said...

Maybe you ended up some place with beautiful flowers? Great shots!
Your Pals,
Murphy & Stanley



Ah, I did!  I left my magical high country world to land in another magical place in the low country. 

Fortunately for me we are having a cool summer just about everywhere!




If y’all read Murphy and Stanley’s first comment, you’ll know he has a more current badge for the Fractured Friday blog hop. (click to travel to the info)  It will be the last Friday of each month.

Y’all be sure to stop by for a special tour post on Sepia Saturday!  Have to go now!




Y’all hurry back now!

Blogpaws Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop gives me an opportunity to share some beautiful photos from my mountain world and shore world. 




















Hope y’all have enjoyed these glimpses into both of my worlds…

Tomorrow I’ll take a look back at this past week and try to answer everyone’s questions. Have you figured out where I ended up in last Friday’s post?

Disgusting Mischief


Hi Y’all!



As y’all probably remember, we have a fig tree.  (If yesterday’s post didn’t tell you where I am, this tree’s a big hint as to where I ended up in Fridays’ post)


This fig tree is covered with ripening figs right now and all kinds of birds, including orioles, mocking and blue jays are covering the tree to peck each fig as it ripens. 


To add to the competition, that pesky squirrel has been all over the tree! 


These critters and fowl knock lots of figs off. 

While my Humans were trying to pick some figs off the tree, I went behind the hedge and ate and ate the ones that had fallen on the ground.



Big problem!  I’d just had my dinner.  When we went back inside I wasn’t feelin’ so good.  Oh, dear! Retch!! and all of my supper and partially digested figs came up. 

My Human cleaned everything up. 


All evening I was hungry and the mean woman wouldn’t give me more supper! It was all her fault for not paying attention to me!


I haven’t been near that tree or eaten a fig since!  I did check out the pears on the ground.  No I didn’t eat any.


But that wasn’t the only thing we got into last week…

Murphy & Stanley are hosting Fractured Fryday Hairy Tails that started on 7-25-14.   See their 7-7-14 post for all of the details, then join in on the 25th to participate.

Well, I had my post all planned out and then I got to writin’ it and I got it wrong!  My Human was workin’ hard ‘cause she has a couple of deadlines comin’ up and I didn’t get the computer ‘til late. 



She’s the editor and didn’t catch my error!   I left out the part with the box!!!  THE DARNED BOX! 

See, this is a diary of my life, so I didn’t want to make it a fairy tail…it had to be real…but I forgot the box, and the Human didn’t catch it.



My final mischief happened Saturday when my Human opened the garage door and outside were 2 neighbor dogs.  Despite her command, I tore out the door to check out the invaders! 


So this week has just been filled with mischief!  I think I’ve been in trouble more than I’ve been out. 


Now let’s go join Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog and My Brown Newfies.for some more good fun and mischief…



Y’all come by now!
