Out & About With Mr. Doogs & Miss Fiona ~ Scottie Independence

It is a nice and breezy morning ~ just perfect for a walk with us! So come along with me and my little sister and and we'll show you what we like to do.
There is lots of sniffing and exploring along the way. Doesn't my little sister look too cute with that pink flower stuck to her nose?
The sun is nice and bright against a perfectly blue sky.
Maw and Fiona better hurry up and catch my Paw and I. You know us guys, we are bigger and faster! ...but we don't tell them that!
We like the flags that fly high and proud at the park.
Ok! Let the games begin!!! Off go our leashes and we are all about running around and playing Scottie games ~ that of which translates into biting on the face, poking each other in the butt and tagging and running. Of course, little sis just has to be the first instigator!
She is learning that I, Doogie P., am bigger, faster and smarter!
However, I am also a gentleman and like to let her think she is getting the upper lip on me every so often.
Lots of circling each other...
Running....
....and yes, she keeps on running.....and running...and running...and she runs just like a rabbit!
...until she figures out I stopped. With our tongues totally hanging out as far as they could possibly extend from our mouth, we look for a place to rest.
I guide little Sis to where the shade trees are...
...and she insists on running rather than walkiing. So off I go to chase her down.....
....and we find the perfect spot to plop down in the nice cool shade and soft grass. She is telling me that this IS A GOOD SPOT!
Ahhhh....to relax.....
...and smile pretty for Maw's camera!
We are contemplating how far away the water fountain is. With our mouth watering in anticipation for a refreshing sip of H20....
...we made a break! Fiona is my lookout...
...and always lets me (the big dog) drink first. Maw always says, "ladies first," however Fiona still lets me have first grabs.
I have to tell her that it's OK to drink with me.
We head back for home now....
but Maw wanted to show you some of the cool details at the park ~ like this STAR metal flowerbed cover.
While Maw is oooo'ing and awww'ing over the doo-dads, Fiona and I check out the park rules. Hey, we are under 5 so do we get to play?
Fiona really needs to learn her ABC's...
...and I could teach them to her as we swing on these.
Hmmmmm....interesting....is this something I could pee on?
Maw said, "No," so I shall stick to places like this.
On the trek back home Maw spies these flowers that she said reminds her of fireworks or sparklers.
We're back at the ol' homestead now.

WE hope you enjoyed your Independence Day!


...time for a good doggie snooze.....

awwwwwwww, I love this x Thank you

Shelia said...

Oh, sweet little Scotties! I have so enjoyed the walk with you and watching you two play! You both are just the most beautiful little things! I'm sure my Chloe Dawn would love to play with you! I do believe she must be your cousin - she's a mini Schnauzer and looks so much like you, Doogs, but her legs are longer and her tail is shorter!
Be sweeties,
Shelia ;)

Miss Jean said...

You are so lucky to have such well mannered dogs! Maggie would have been in Turlock by now if she was off leash!

Old Centennial Farmhouse said...

Ohhh...how SWEET! I loved taking the dogs for a walk....and seeing their little park! And all the red, white and blue is gorgeous, you KNOW I like me some red, white & blue!
Those scotties are the cutest ever! Hope you had a relaxing fourth!
XOXO

Doogs and Fiona are so cute! We had a low key 4th. Just watched the parade and grilled.

Charli and me said...

Awwww.... Your little pooches are so sweet. I read this out loud to Charli and she said, ruff, ruff. I think that must mean hello :>) I hope you and your family had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend ♥

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

You guys are so cute - we would love to be able to play with you. Thanks for sharing your beautiful park.

Please join our 100th post - "stick out your tongue" contest. We might be prejudice but we would love to see a Scottie win - shh!! don't tell those other doggies. Everyone has the same chance as the name will be pulled out of a hat.

XOXO
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Denise said...

Oh you are so funny and talk about your dog daze of summer...... Looks like the perfect day to me.... It rained here and all the fireworks were canceled and our family cook out was rained out! OH Well..... Me and DH had a nice day alone....... We are off to the hospital tomorrow for his surgery...... Double hernia ....OUCH!

Simply Dandy said...

Oh Becky, when I look at these photos, I want to get a brother or sister for Jackson. Fiona and Dugs are absolutely adorable together.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Pat said...

They are so cute and it was fun to "watch" them explore the park!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

I spent my 4th visiting my sister and family and my parents in the mountains of NC! We had the most fun! Your dogs are precious! Hope your 4th was nice too! Love & blessings from NC!

Teresa said...

That was a wonderful trip to the park with two of my favorite Scotties. Miss Fiona is getting so big! I just want to know, is that park an enclosed park, or do Doogs and Miss Fiona do okay with freedom like that? Scotties have a reputation for not being trusted off their leash.

What a day!! I was tired just watching your antics, Doogs & Fiona!!
Glad you enjoyed your outing; you were nice to let Maw and Paw come along too.
:)

Mr. Doogs and Miss Fiona -
Thanks for letting us all come to the park with you. We had so much fun watching you both run and explore and play :) I know Bear would have loved to be there playing with you and Miss Fiona. It was certainly a beautiful day to go to the park. Hope you, Fiona and your maw and dad had a great fourth of July!!

Dawn said...

What a great way to spend the day. I had just posted about our coming dog park before I saw your post. I'm with Miss Jean, I need a fence before I'm letting Sunny run. He want's to go make friends with every person or dog he sees.

So you grew up in the cental valley too. If you come to town let me know. I don't get out of town too much but I'd love to check out the Green Pea (hope I got the name right) I had read some of the quilter's blogs linked to Miss Jean and think I saw it there too. Looks like a great place.

What a nice day you had! I loved all the Scottie frapping. Doogs and Fiona look like they were having a blast. I wish Oliver and Baggins could have joined in. Oliver gives Doogs 2 paws up for keeping the alpha roll ;-)

Your flag banner looks so nice on your house.

Monday blessings dear Becky,

Looks like you guys had lots of fun. What a cute little place to get a drink. I wish we had a great doggy park close to our house like you do. Mimi

Thimbleanna said...

What a lucky guy you are Doogs -- you live in such a beautiful place. And a doggie water fountain -- how cool is that???

ScrapsofMe said...

Bonnie says Fi's harness is scrumptiously pink....her fave color. And that Doogs is handsome...and manly looking...but she's in heat so anything male is looking good right now. Bonnie can't wait till she can run free in the park too. Have fun and enjoy the sweet summertime walkies.

Cheryl said...

That was the best walk ever!! Lovely pictures.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

My gosh, Fiona is getting SO big! It was just the other day she just filled your hand.
I think I enjoy that walk every bit as much as they did!
I agree with Penny! What a lovely park they get to play in and enjoy!

I wish Mele could have a little friend to play with..but Howard won't hear of it...so..Mele has to wait for play dates with Brian (my son's dog) as he is her best friend!
I think of you often, my sweet friend and wonder how you are!
~love and hugs!~

Lisa said...

Looks like you had a star spangled day in the park with the gang! Must admit if my yard were as terrific looking as yours I may never leave home though. Have a wonderful weekend.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh how cute Mr. Doogs and Miss Fiona are, and what a fun time it looks like they had! That is a lovely park, but your maw and paw's welcoming yard and front porch, decked out in patriotic colors,are so pretty. Don't pee on those hydrangeas. They are beautiful. Maybe that's what made them so pretty though, so go ahead if that's what you do! laurie

Pansy Cottage Girl said...

Oh those little dogs are just so darn cute.

The Green Pea said...

Maw, you let Mr. D pee on the light pole base! He also is just testing the water to make sure it is good for his sister, before she drinks it!!!! What a good boy...Mrs. Pea

Patti said...

Hi Becky! I love your blog! It is so happy and has so much neat stuff to look at!

It was wonderful meeting you, your friends, and of course, your furbabies! We love those terriers with beards!

I will remember to contact you next time I am in town. We just love Elegant Stitch! I keep thinking about all of the patterns and kits I left behind. LOL

Patti (and Liesl, too!)
