We're Back from the Woods

Gee we missed you guys…….

it's Dewey and Toby reportin' from our perch at the front cottage window….. Gram could go outside on the deck here and catch us lookin’ out. I would like to tell ya, Gram needs a bit of help here cause she left all the camera stuff at the cottage so none of the video we took can get transferred into the computer cause all the camera parts are still at the cottage. Someone please help my Gram find her mind……

We were at our cottage for more than a week……it is in the woods outside of Titusville Pa.( where the worlds first oil well was drilled in 1859). We haven’t been there since early December…..so this was a good visit. Toby was never there before since he only came to live with us in February and boy did he have a good time. No fences and lots of yard and acres of woods…wow, he was impressed......
Now, I can tell ya that me and my Mom don’t do this, but Toby seemed to think chasing stones was great sport and when Pap threw the stones down the hill…. Toby ran after them and attacked ‘em........
Here’s Toby sittin on the deck with his dirty face….ya know ya get a pretty dirty face when ya pick up dirty stones in it……
Whenever we are here, we take long walks in the woods checkin’ on everyone else’s place to make sure no burglars have been around causin’ trouble. We checked out McCarthy’s place and found an old drain pipe layin’ on the ground. Me and Mom felt sure that a chipmunk or two was livin’ in there….and of course we needed to roust it out.
Oh yeah....check out my Mom...cause when we were walkin' through the woods she found a mud puddle and laid right in it....gettin' all dirty....now I tell ya, I never do that cause I know that means a bath is comin' and yep, she got one......

We attacked that pipe and ran around the yard with it to make sure any vermin were sufficiently terrified…..

We were at that pipe so much that we collapsed the ends of it……sure hope the McCarthy’s don’t need it anymore……..oh and we didn't see any vermin at all.....rats.....

Gee, we had a great time, but there’s only dialup service there and we couldn’t visit anyone’s blog usin’ that……so it’s good to be home………. and we'll be 'round to see what ya all have been up to while we were gone.

Dewey Dewster and family reportin' here........back to you now.........

Hi Guys!

Welcome home! Missed ya! It sure looks like fun up at your cottage. I would love playing in the woods and the mud. Especially the mud. Hehehehe. The other day on my walk I stood in a mud puddle with all four legs and would not move. It was fun!

Glad you're back!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Sounds like you guys had a blast at the cottage. We can't believe you didn't find any vermin there in the woods. We have all kinds of vermin around here. Those pesky chipmunks even run inside of our drainage spouts on the house. The also live under our gazebo & we try to get them. Good job on terrorizing that pipe in case there was something in there, hehehehe. Have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi doggie pals... You all look like you had a marvelous time! It is so nice to go on a vacation, isn't it?

That cottage looks like a lot of fun. Toby sounds like my kind of dog as I too love chasing and playing with stones. When we go to the beach, I pick the largest one I can find and try and carry it home with me. Usually I drop it on the way though... J x
