Breakfast in the boot

Pooches, when my manservant returned from his early morning walk/run this morning he announced that, other than a late afternoon visit to our village’s farmers market, he was going to confine himself to our library today and any excursion we had planned had to happen immediately.  Starlight and I wasted no time in scampering out to the Hybridmobile.  The Hybridmobile glided gently down the lane toward my school park, stopping first at a business establishment in order to give my manservant the opportunity to purchase sausage and biscuits for our breakfast!  Woo hoo!

As we disembarked from the Hybridmobile when we arrived at my school park, my manservant suggested that we head out to my multi-use trail and take a wee bit longer of a stroll than we usually have on our excursions.  Starlight and I were both game and we energetically headed toward the trail.  We fairly sauntered down the trail except for frequent stops to investigate scents whenever one was detected!

It was quite the excursion, pooches.  An hour later we tiredly returned to the Hybridmobile and were pleased to remember that breakfast awaited us in the boot!  With tired legs and full bellies we will sleep soundly during naps today.

It is a pleasant morning for a stroll from my school park down my multi-use trail.

Squeezing in an excursion

Pooches, Starlight and I have been left to fend for ourselves for most of the day while my manservant busied himself with many tasks.  He did manage an early walk/run this morning and his late morning yoga class.  Otherwise he was preoccupied with this and that.

Lunch was captured in our icebox and we did have a grand time eating seafood gumbo at our picnic bench.  Afterwards, pooches, we accompanied my manservant as he ran this errand then that errand.  We were beginning to tire of the back seat of the Hybridmobile when it pulled up to my school park and we quickly hopped out for a robust excursion along the waterfront.  It felt good on the ol’ legs to stretch after being cooped up in the Hybridmobile all afternoon.

We’re back at our den now and my manservant has continued his ‘busy’ mode.  Starlight and I, on the other hand, have opted for our ‘nap’ mode!

Finally Friday again

Pooches, we’ve had a busy week around our pack and today is no different.  Errands had to be run, yoga class attended, the usual walk/run undertaken, and our picnic lunch not forsaken.  In the middle of all of that activity, an excursion was made to the far side of my Rez at my Saturday park!

In an effort to make amends for yesterday’s missed excursion, the Hybridmobile delivered us to my Saturday park where a long stroll was taken.  There were plenty of scents to be sniffed but we were a wee bit disappointed that we didn’t get a glimpse of the wee ‘gator who lives there.

Upon our return to our den my manservant headed out to yoga class.  He returned with a vegetarian pizza for a picnic at our picnic bench.  Said pizza was placed in the oven and heated before we paraded out to the picnic bench to enjoy pizza and pooch treats!

See you tomorrow on Silent Saturday, pooches.

Excursionless Thursday.

Pooches, we might as well have not gotten out of bed this morning.  My manservant, declining to go on a walk/run, headed to the library early this morning and announced he was going to be there all day and into the evening.  An excursion, he said, was out of the question and the only interruption he anticipated was warming up and eating lunch.

So it has gone, pooches!  Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

Are you going to spend all day in our library?

Downtown adventure!

Pooches, when my manservant returned from this morning’s walk/run at his walk/run park, the lawn manicuring machine was brought out and he set about going to and fro through our back yard.  When the task was finished he headed to our library to continue his work on academic responsibility preparation.  In late morning, he suggested that we incorporate our excursion with a trip deep in heart of the concrete jungle to continue his academic responsibility preparation,  The Hybridmobile glided us deep into the city and found a parking place with a view.  We hopped out and, after a short walk, we greeted my womanservant at her office and told he we were here for a visit while my manservant took care of his responsibilities in a nearby office building.

We had a grand visit while we awaited the return of my manservant.  Starlight wanted to open the window and throw paperclips at humans on the sidewalk far below but my womansevant forbade such activity.  My manservant finally returned and we bade farewell to my womanservant.  Before returning to the Hybridmobile we visited a wee park nearby and had quite a scamper around the park.  Oddly, pooches, the scents in the park were few and far between.  Starlight and I remain puzzled at the absence of other creatures.

A stop was made at the whole wallet market to acquire lunch on our return to our den.  In an effort to counteract the deadly lunch my manservant cooked yesterday, he filled a take-away box with all manner of leafy greens and vegetables.  The resulting salad was accompanied by a baked green garbanzo falafel.   As we later dined at our picnic bench in the newly manicured back yard, Starlight and I let my manservant have the salad to himself while we stayed with our faithful pooch treats.

It is now afternoon nap time!

Swapping it up a bit!

Pooches, this morning my manservant said instead of going to his walk/run park he was going to undertake his walk/run in our poochhood and the poochhood adjoining ours and that Starlight and I could accompany him and call it an excursion!  After some discussion about it, Starlight and I agreed to the proposal and we even threw in calling it a litter patrol as well!

As we headed down the lane, Starlight and I had a grand time sniffing the nocturnally deposited scents throughout the poochhood while my manservant busied himself picking up litter and tracking our walking speed.  The pond in the poochhood adjoining ours was circled twice before we headed back to our den.

After we began our morning naps my manservant worked in our library on his upcoming academic responsibilities and performed a few household chores.  A quick trip to the market was made in order to acquire items for the tasty lunch he promised after he returned from his yoga class.

After yoga class had been completed we all headed outdoors where my manservant fired up the outdoor stovetop and began preparation of a down home meal of fried pork chop, grits and gravy, and onion rings.  Pooches, Starlight and I thought we had died and gone to heaven! (many more meals like that and that might be the case)

We, of course, are stuffed and will be immobile until suppertime.

We should have brought our breakfast.  This would be a dandy spot for a picnic.
