Go For a Walk? - MamaKat's

Early this morning we took a walk.  We have been neglectful about walking the dogs in all this summer heat and Mr BC has finally recovered from bronchitis.  Last night we decided that as soon as the sun started coming up we would harness up the pups and go out to the cemetery for a walk.

This morning, the moment we said out loud, "want to go for a walk', Totes and Gwennie went crazy and made us feel even guiltier for not walking them (and ourselves) everyday.  They are so funny, Totes does his Totem...

and silly Gwenny runs from room to until I shout GWENNY and she stands still grinning at us.
It was very enjoyable watching the sun peek through the clouds.  The air was warm and moist, as there are possible showers expected not enough to affect the drought but the clouds were cooling the morning.

The dogs enjoyed smelling every fence and tombstone in the cemetary, It is out in the country somewhat and deer and other woodland creatures wander through the cemetary at night leaving behind interesting smells for curious puppies.  Mr BC and I are rather fond of old cemetaries and the pups wanderings allow us to check out the old civil war tombstones, the newer ones that mark the grounds.  "I use to go to school with a .....insert any name......" We park near the site of his mom and dad's markers and always have a closing word for them. At the truck we pause for the pups to have some water and we head for home.

It was a nice time and there is no reason we couldn't do this every morning, so we vow to do ourselves and the dogs a favor and not let ennui keep us from enjoying the morning cool.

This prompt is from MamaKat's Writers Workshop.  I re-worded a little to suit my needs as the kids are grown.
4.) Ask your child  DOGS what their favorite part of Summer has been and then blog about it.

I couldn't ask Gwenny. but this picture shows what she thinks.


  1. Such personality bundled up in those two little fur balls! I love taking my little fellow for walks, too ... when the weather is cool!

    Visiting from Mama Kat's :)

  2. I love that you fiddled with the prompt! And your dogs are adorable :)

  3. Ahhh sweet post. I love the pictures! Dogs are so easily pleased….a little walk rocks their world. I fine mornings where I live are worse than evenings because of the humidity…unless it's before 6 am and dark…but come fall I'll be out there….nice post :)

  4. Oh, they are just so cute. I have a hard time motivating to take the dog for a walk when it's this hot outside too. They seem to like it regardless.

  5. Wonderful! I love walking through old cemeteries too. They are so peaceful, and you really get a sense of history from reading the stones.

  6. Cute doggies!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, try your hand at fiction. It's so much fun!

  7. I love early morning walks with our dogs! Their excitement level is through the roof, regardless if we just walked the day before or a week has passed. It's nice having that kind of joy starting my day.

  8. Sounds like a fun walk for you and the dogs. I took youngest grandson for a walk around the park yesterday, that was fun. :)
