A Day for the Woof

National Dog Appreciation Day

Last week we celebrated National Dog Appreciation Day.
Of course, every day we appreciate our pups.
So true!
We were able to get most of our puppies to come outside for a photo.
Yeah, Caramelotta decided to be uncooperative.
Miraculously they stayed still. Well, Lena and Tatlo moved





Give your furry family member a hug from us!

Have a great day!

It's Pyewacket Day

National Black Cat Appreciation Day

A Belated Celebration, Sort Of!


If you have a mini panther in your house and family then you know that every day is black cat appreciation day.  
However, the official date is August 17.
Not to be confused with National Black Cat Day.  
That is celebrated on October 27.

Pyewacket and I went outside or a bit the other day.

I chanced going without harness by keeping quite a few treats in my pocket.

It worked.  we didn't stay out long, but it was a nice day.

I wonder...there has to be a National Tuxedo Cat Day.  Licorice would love that!
(PS. There is!  It is October 29.)

Thank you for joining us today.  

Have a nice day!  Stay safe and well!

Meatloaf's Rail Adventure #12

A bit late, but!


Good gravy! I can't believe I forgot to come back and post this. So I made a few tweaks. Enjoy!

Heading to Harrisburg


Meatloaf, are you ready to ride the rails?
{Woof}
Good boy!  Let's go to the truck!

Milk and Honey?

The other weekend Xyra, Franz, and Meatloaf joined our friends from the Bucksgahuda and Western Railroad at the Middletown and Hummelstown Railroad for a motorcar trip.  It was a small group this time. 

It was rough going early in the morning because a rain storm went through over night and it was still raining in spots and there was flash flooding along their normal route.  All the low spots in the road through Reading, PA were impassable. Luckily, Franz works out that direction and he was able to find a route using back roads. 

They arrived at the railroad late and last, but that was okay.  Everyone helped unload and the trip got started.  Meatloaf likes the Soo Lline car because it has inspection windows that he can look through without stretching.

The train of motorcars headed out through the woods and along the river to a high bridge.  Right across from Horse Thieves Cave was a rope swing.  The ride guide told everyone the railroad goes out a few times a year to clean off the graffiti.





The bridge was really high so meatloaf didn't venture too close.  He wanted to stay safe.







Soon they headed back to the starting place and went further to an area with many tracks for lunch.  Just before they ate an Amtrak train passed through.





After lunch everyone rode back up over the bridge. This time they saw people enjoying the water.  the rope swing, kayaking, tubing. Everyone was waving to each others railroaders to swimmers and back!







Soon it was time to head back to the set on spot to set off and head home.  A hot, sticky, summer day with a lot of adventure.



PS. Xyra went into the cave and thought it was really cool. she would have like to explore more.  Reminded her of Scooby Doo episodes. 

Thank you for stopping by!  Have you ever swung on a rope swing into the water? Maybe kayaking or tubing? 

Have a great day!  Stay safe!
