Scenes from the Pup-cam

It has been awhile since I've been able to go out and take pictures.  Last week mom and I went over to the Colusa Wildlife Refuge.  The weather was cold so the short walking trail was just the ticket.  Since I had my camera, mom let me handle most of the phodography.
Mom fixed a better way for my camera to hang on my neck so I think I got some pretty good pictures this time.  Good scenery shots without my chin in the way, bol!  Though mom should have taken my ID tag off...
Anyhoo... here we go with some trail shots.

The trail is a half mile and it just goes out and back.  There is a cool bridge at the end of the trail and you have a pretty clear view of one of the ponds from the end of the bridge.  For some reason mom is always nervous that if I'm ever going to drop my camera, it will be off of the bridge, bol!  Needless to say we did not spend a lot of time there.
Even though it was a cool day, it's impawtant to stay hydrated.  Here is mom pouring me a drink.
I really like this next picture I took but I didn't have my head up quite high enough.  We were heading toward a wildlife viewing platform.
We did not go all the way out on the platform.  They didn't design it for pups with cameras so I couldn't get any good shots besides what I was sniffing on the platform.  They have the fence slats just too close together.
We stopped at the trailhead on the way back so I could take some pictures of the pond there.  The birds were getting pretty close to the shore near us so mom didn't want me too close to scare them.
My camera just didn't have the range so I asked mom to help me out with some close ups.  There was a Coot swimming really close to the shore by us.  I might have been whining a bit in my excitement, bol!
I really like the Coots (actually, I just like saying Coot, bol).
There are always a lot of Northern Shovellers too.  Mom had a hard time taking a picture when they weren't dabbling though.  There is a Pintail in the background of this picture too.
Thanks for letting me share my pictures.
Here is my favorite bridge picture again as if it was a watercolor pencil drawing:

Have a great Easy Sunday and week ahead, everybuddy!

Toesday with Minnie

You caught me an my pawsies nappin.
We are hunkered down on mom here, tryin to keep warm.  It has been cold here lately, even though we have sunshines.  I am always trying to climb in mom's lap if she is sitting down or jump on her shoulders.  She says that bit is getting rather annoying...hmmm...I'm not sure what she could mean by that...
The wind has really picked up today too: 17 squillion miles an hour with gusts up to 32 squillion miles per hour.  Mom had to go down to Davis for some supplies.  She was driving on a frontage road and was almost broadsided by a tumbleweed, mol!  On the plus side though, there is some good leaf action at the TV windows :).
So this is the last Toesday of 2014.  Can you believe it?  It's not quite New Year's Eve, but still.
As usual we'll proly spend our New Year's Eve, well, sleeping!
We're an exciting group here, hee hee!
Have a great Toesday!
Happy New Year, everybuddy!
We want to wish you all the best for the coming year!

Caturday Christmas (un)wrap-up

Apparently Sandy Clawrs had contracted with the man in brown shorts 'cause we had boxes showing up at our door in the few days before Christmas.  We were all relieved to have made it to Santa Paws' "Nice" list.  Of course, though, mom made us wait until Christmas morning to unwrap unbox everything.
Hmmm...which one first?
Hurry up, mom!
Oh, er... looks like a supply of my medicines...
Ok, what's in this one?
Here Minnie, I think these shreddy papers are for you...
Hmmm...looks like a new lighted collar for me and, um, digestive enzymes for you kitties...
Here we go!
It's a turkey sammich!
And it squeaks!
ok, last box...
Pill pockets, more pills for me, and shtinky goodness for Pip.
Is it me, or does it seem like Sandy Paws was on a practical bent with our pressies?
Mom got a couple of calendars and CD's of the Falcon radio show.
Besides the papers and bows, the kitties also got some gambling cat dice.
Woo hoo!
Who's up for a game of craps some playin?
