A new friend?

Mom dug a bunch of boxes out from the basement today, and in one of the boxes there was a smaller box. And in that smaller box was this guy...

Fall Hike

It was a really pretty day yesterday, and mom decided that we would use that as an excuse to do a little bit of walking/hiking in the afternoon. There's another dog blogger out there by the name of Shawnee who goes on hikes allllllll the time with her pawrent. (You can go over over here to visit Shawnee's blog!) Shawnee's pawrent also has a blog where she gives well-detailed instructions about their hike and how to get to these places (Visit the blog, Gone Hikin'.) Well, mom momma was THRILLED when she visited Gone Hikin', because lots of the places Shawnee had hiked where prettttty close to us! So for our hike yesterday she picked one of the places Shawnee and her mom had gone and off we went. We DID cut our hike a little shorter because she wasn't sure we were ready for a 10 mile long hike just yet, and also unsure how long that would take us to do even if we were (the days ARE shorter, afterall). She's promised me that since we enjoyed this shorter version so well this go around that we would try again for the longer version sometime soon!
Just a pretty picture in the very start of the trail mom took! 
Well mom, dad?! Aren't you coming! We've got some moving to do!
Intresting smells on this green stuff...
Mom called this the dragon tree...
...and of course poppa felt the need to keep us safe and had to fight it...
Then they made ME pose in it's open mouth! 
...anoyone home in here?!
More fun smells here.
Come on mom, hurry up!
So much fun, hiking! 

Mom says the hike we did was about 5 miles, and it pooped me out! On the way back I slept on dad's lap...I needed to regain all my energy because we were going back to dad's house where Honey had been waiting for me to come over and play!

I reall realllllly realllllllllllllllllly hope we can go out and do more hiking soon! 

So any of you guys go hiking or walking anywhere fun?!

Vacation, our last day!

The day before had been all windy and grey, with a craaazy number of people on the beach. Our last day there, Sunday, was gorgeous! Mom wanted to go over into Cape May to see the lighthouse, and so we off we went! We got there and, wow! The beach by the condo may have been pretty empty, but here at the Cape May lighthouse there were lots of people! It looked like it was some sort of event, lots of people with lots of big, made-mom-jealous cameras. Apparently there's a bird and wildlife refuge right there next to the beach, which is what mom thinks the even had to do with. We stayed away from the people and went right out to the beach area and began walking.

There were a few places up the beach from the water were there were patches of tall grass. It was kinda cool.

And then there was this big thing:

Keep Off? Make me!
Mom says it's called a bunker and it was built back during something she called World War II. Whatever that is, it doesn't sound like it was a very good thing! Once we hit the bunker Mom wanted to keep going and walking, but was feeling back because I couldn't be as free to run around on my short little leash. She decided we should leave and head back to the beach by the condo, so I could be more free.

BUT not before a few more pictures, this time with the lighthouse she had wanted to see!

What? Turn around and look at the lighthouse thing? But there's a BIRD over there!

So that's pretty much my first ever most awesomest when-can-we-go-again?! vacation summed up! Well, mostly summed up. Mom has plenty more pictures she'd like to share, but she's having a hard time with blogger not wanting to let her put them where she wants them in the post currently, and it's turning her face a little red and she's beginning to say some words that are making my little puppy boy ears burn!

I'm pretty sure this means she should come and scratch them for me, and maybe play some tug with fox!

Vacation, part 2!

In my last post I covered just the verrrrrry first day we arrived, I still have two whole more days to talk about and show off!

The next morning mom and my poppa woke up early (both are early birds!) and they say the sunrise was Beautiful!

Between you and me? I didn't much care, there was sand to play with!

We didn't stay out long, it was a bit chilly and we were all hungry for breakfast! The next time we went out it was very windy and no at all sunshine-y like it was the day before. Even though it was kind of icky out, mom and poppa decided we would still take a good long walk on the beach together. When we got out there, we discovered that despite the day the beach was very active! Since it was windy out, there were many people out there riding on these cart looking things, being pulled by what my mom said was a large kite.

Here's a picture of one that mom took as it zipped by!

There were also people riding by in what mom called 'sail sand boats'.

Here's three of them!

People riding these were all over on the beach!

When I first saw these things, I had no idea what to think, so I barked and tried to chase them. It took me awhile to calm down and realize that as long as I stayed out of their way they would just zip on by and leave us alone.  Once I realized that, I was able to enjoy out walk and the beach much more.

OMD birds! Must chase!
Those birds are just luck they're on the other side of this big puddle!
What is this thing?!
I saw this thing in a big puddle thing, but couldn't get at it. I did do a lot of barking at it to show it who was boss, though!
Showing off my noble poodle profile!

What's under here?

Yes, mom?
 On occasion my poppa would jog a bit ahead, and I would jog with him!

Since the beach was sooooo super busy and my recall isn't 100% yet, Mom kept me on my 15ft training lead.

Gotcha pant leg, dad!
This is mom's favorite picture of my dad and me. 

At the end of our walk, mom turned around to take a picture to show just how many of those sail sand boats and kite carts there were.

Each  of those little dots in the sky is a car kite! So many of them!

Before we headed back into the condo complex, mom and dad let me run crazy in the drier sand up the beach! The resulting romp ended up in a sand covered me!

Woohoo! Have I mentioned I LOVE this sand stuff?!

Since my dad said that my grandpawrents would kill us if we got sand all over the furniture, that mean I would need a bath first thing.

All clean, mom. Can I come up on the couch now?

And that was pretty much our Saturday! After we came in we hung around a little to recuperate from our walk (dad says we walked 5 miles! Whatever that means...). I pretty much passed out. Mom doesn't have a picture from her big camera of a sleepy me, but she did post one or two to my instagram

Tomorrow I'll post about the last day of my first vacation, Sunday! There was more walking, what mom called a lighthouse and this old big building thing!

Come back and visit me again tomorrow for a recap of that and more pictures!

We're back! (1st Vacation, pt1!)

And we had SO MUCH fun! The place we went was right at the bottom-ish tip of New Jersey, right between Cape May and the boardwalk at Wildwood. My pawrents have been there before a few times, where we stayed is a condo that's owned by my poppa's pawrents.

We were supposed to start our trip down on Thursday, but due to a few things that happened that day couldn't leave until Friday morning. We left at 10 in the morning, and got there at about 2pm. It was a beautiful day...and what a view we had!

Mom really likes this view a lot.

We hung around in the room for a little while before we went down to the ground. The ground there was so much different then the ground back home, it was soft and mushy. Mom said it was sand! The first time I put a paw on it I had no idea what to think! So, I did what any puppy would do...I ran around like a manic on it! Mom tried to take a video, but somehow deleted it when she went to look at it herself. It makes her a little sad, because it's a first of mine she'll never see again. I've already crossed my paws and promised her to act incredibly goofy the next time we go back, because I'm sure I'll have forgotten just how weird that sand stuff is at first!

Anyway after I got used to the feeling of this sand stuff under my paws, I saw IT. The biggest most amount of water ever!

OMD! So much water!

It was moving! I tried to go after it, (I AM a poodle and I DO like jumping around in puddles after all!)...but when I did IT CAME AFTER ME, TOO!

I'm gonna getcha, water!


You are not supposed to get me back, water!

I decided after that that maybe attacking the water wasn't such a good idea. Instead I stayed up further on the sand where the water couldn't get past my paws.

Okay water, I propose a truce.

I don't charge you, you don't attack me deal?

Mom, I made nice with the big water. Can I get a treat now?

 After that we walked a little more on the beach, and I acted goofy and played and ran and dug a bit in the sand.

Look at me! I'm a rabbit!


More of my bunny impression! 
 Once we were back inside Mom and my poppa and me loaded back up into the car because they needed to go get people foods for the next few days. There was a Petsmart right next to the people store, so we went in because Mom needed to get me some more foods. While we were there my poppa got this big girlie pig thing for Honey back home. We won't tell Honey this, but I got to play with it first once we got back to the condo!

After that we all just stayed in, and went to sleeps early because tomorrow was another day with more fun promised!

....which mom and I will post all about tomorrow! With LOTS more fun pictures! Hope everyone here in blogvilled had as good a weekend as I did!

So this is where we were going!

This place is sooooo cool! We're really high up (though I don't know how! We got into this square box, these doors closed and when they opened we were up high!) and there this huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge pond or lake or puddle or something out there! I can't wait to check it out! 

Mom says for the time we're down here we won't be posting, but that we can make a big awesome post with lots of fun pictures once we get home! 

So until we get home, bye and hope everyone has a fun weekend!

Heading out!

Remember I said mom said we were going somewhere awesome at the end of the week? It's the end of the week and we're going! See, all packed up and ready ! I don't know where we're going, but I'm sure it'll be fun!
