Willow Wednesday

No trip to Phoenix is complete without taking a nice hike in the desert.
Here I am at South Mountain Park. This is the largest municipal park in the country!
I bet you can't even tell that I am in the middle of the city.

Naturally, I had to see a saguaro cactus. They are very tall (and sharp!)
I tried really hard to be good and stay on the marked trails.

There were all sorts of interesting buildings at the entrance of the park.

Can you find me in this picture?

Scorpion Gulch?  Nobody told me there were scorpions here! I'm glad I didn't know that BEFORE I went hiking.
I'm going to toss a penny in the wishing well and wish that I never see a scorpion!!

Look what we got

We didn't get to go to the eskie meetup because we are both too big to fly in the cabin, and our girl didn't want to check us as baggage on the plane (plus she bought her ticket last minute). But look what she brought home for us. Pup Cakes!!

Look at the one Comet got! It's huge.
I get a tiny little one. At least it's blue!
I don't think I like this.
In fact, I KNOW I don't like this. Take it away and give me a real treat!

I don't know why BLU is so weird about treats.
Mine tastes pretty good to me.
In fact, it's DEEEEE-LICIOUS!!!
Ummmm.... If BLU doesn't want her treat, can I have it?

NorCal Eskie Fest

On Saturday morning, our girl woke up early, ran to the farmer's market, then came home and made this yummy looking salad. Then she put it in a bag and left the house.

We've been busy doing detective work and tracked down where she went.
She got on a plane and flew to California to visit with some of our eskie friends! Jackson and Luna are in the pictures, along with some people who have other eskies.
What a traitor! Can you believe she is petting Jackson!
and look at all this yummy food they had!

Cake? YUMMM!!!

Can we have a piece?
Luna tried her best to get some treats.
But then her mom was mean and put her on a leash so she couldn't steal any food. And it was in Luna's house!! That's just wrong.

Look at these delicious looking dog treats.
Who are they going to give the treat to? Luna? Jackson?
What? Those are dog treats, NOT people treats. Didn't you have enough yummy food of your own?
Hey! Not another person eating OUR treats!

That's just WRONG!
We wonder if Jackson's mom is eating human food or more dog treats? What do you think?
Here the people are looking at all the pictures they took.
Who knew California was so cold. Our girl needed to borrow a coat, wear gloves, and drink hot tea to warm up.
But Jackson and Luna enjoyed the breeze and the view from Eskie Rock.

Tomorrow we will show you what our girl brought back for us......

No wonder cats like to climb trees. The view from up here is fantastic!

Happy Helper

See that shed door? The machine that washes the girl's clothes is hiding in there.
See the hose that is dripping? Our girl uses the hose to fill that machine because it doesn't always fill with water the way it is supposed to.

Today the girl got home from work, filled the machine with water, and put clothes in it. Then she fell asleep!
I heard the machine run the water again (rinse cycle) and woke the girl up so she could fill it back with the hose. I'm such a good helper and the girl thought so too! She gave me a chicken jerkey treat!

She claims she's going to buy a new machine next week, but I'm not convinced. She's been using the broken machine for 3 years!!

Willow Wednesday

Look who I found on Easter. The Easter Bunny!
We had a great time hopping around town.
But guess what, the Easter Bunny has lots of friends that hop....
Like his pal the frog!
Let's play leap frog....

OOPS!  I don't think I jumped quite far enough.
