A Bit of the Doggy Blues...

Bear and Ike had no idea where we were going when we left for Wyoming way back in March. But as always, they were ready for the adventure. They are super travelers and rarely complain about anything. 

They never ask are we there yet?
(Except for Bear when we stop for a potty break. 
She whines and whines until we let her back in the car. 
She knows we're just not there yet.)

Now that we're back in the UP, I think they have just a bit of the doggy blues.

They miss sleeping on a tiled floor.

And patiently waiting until the "Don't Chase" lecture ends before going outside.

And hanging out on the deck watching the wildlife they're not allowed to chase.
(Except the rabbits which they never even get close to.)

They miss our long hikes,

and meeting new friends.

And laying on the deck.

They miss going for long rides...

...and relaxing on the shoreline while we fished.

They miss watching us actually catch fish.

17" Rainbow

Too small - it has to be at least 20" in this pond in order to keep it.

22" Rainbow

They miss the aroma of grilled fish.

And wonder why their supper consisted of their usual dry dog food.

They miss watching us clean the fish we limited out on from Lake DeSmet.
(No 20" size limit there!)

And sleeping on the deck.

They miss soaking up the sunshine, feeling the mountain breeze caress their ears...

...and turning just in time to get an even tan.

They miss hiking in the mountain snow.

They miss accompanying Steve as he scanned the valley for wildlife.

Then walking down to the creek and carousing it's shoreline.

And taking the time to pose pretty for a Wyoming memory pic.

Oh, and did I mention laying on the deck?

And last but not least, they miss having their morning coffee on the deck while watching the eastern sun climb higher in the sky over the plains as a new day unfolds in the 
Big Horn Mountains.


Oh wait, that's me.
