The Raging River

I looked out at the creek today. Holeee Cow it is just a little creek now and the raging river is gone. Wonder what happened? Butttt the water is very clear so the mud is somewhere else. Hee Hee somebody else has that dirt in their creek. Today we got to walk our long way. That is my favorite. So I looked at all the places that were for the rain water and they were little creeks and the water was running. It was nifty. The only problem now is somebody put bunches of little rocks or something to get rid of the snow. We have to walk in the street cuz mommee says that might hurt my feet. I love my mommeee. I got a picture of our creek today.


I think rain is boring. Mommee say, Stevie it is too wet to walk. I don’t care if it is wet. I like it. We have a creek behind our house and sometime it is very dry. I mean why call it a creek if it looks like a dirt path. WELLLLLLL, now I know why it is a creek. Actually I think RAGING RIVER is a better way to describe the creek. It looks dirty and the water it noisy and moving really fast. Mommeee says it looks dirty cuz it is coming from wayyyyy up from the top of the mountain and there is a lot of dirt there. I think I am going to watch it. It is fun. Maybe I will see some fish. Hmmmmm in wonder if fish like this creek?? See ya later gators.


OK raise ur paw if u have heard about “heel”. I fink we need tu talk about this. You see humans think that is a good thing and they pretend is gonna be fun but let me tell u it isn’t fun. Wen we go for walks dat is the time fur sniffing and reading da peemail. Mommeez an daddeez read their email an we don’t bother them but wen we try to read our peemail they say “HEEL”. Wats with that. Here is wat heel means guys. U gotta walk right next to ur human, no sniffing, no reading peemail. Just walk walk walk. That is really boring. AND THEN, if they see someone they want to talk to you have to sit and wait nicely. I can do heel if I want and I can sit nicely if I want but I think mommeee has gots to give something back to me. Hmmmmm I need to think about that. You guys got any suggestions? Well, this may need to be discussed again. Anybody have opinions about HEEL????


Hey do u guys know bowt skunks. Now I never heard bowt them but let me tell u PEE and U. First of all they R kinda of cute. They look like little black an white kitties but don’t let them fool you cuz they are nasty little critters. Today on our morning walk I smell this BAD smell. I mean it could bring tears tu your eyes. Mommeee says “Stevie that smell is from a skunk and if you ever see a black kitty with a white stripe down its back you run the other way”. I think it was really awful and for sure if I ever see one I am gonna run. Have you guys ever smelled a skunk??? Whew We have skunks that live in our neighborhood but I haven’t seen one yet. I hope I never do cuz mommeee says they don’t like dogs.


Well, today was a better day for walking and smelling all the yummy things in our neighborhood. We have lots of pine trees. Have you ever eaten a pine cone? I think they are ok but because mommee doesn’t want me to eat them I REALLY want to grab one. Oh well. Let’s see we also have lots of squirrels here too. They run up and down the trees and sometimes they make funny faces at me. I have to guard our yard to keep those pesky squirrel out. Heh heh Then we have these gigantic birds that are black. Mommeee says they are ravens. I like to watch them but they never let me get very close. Anyway, walking was good because the ice is gone and the snow is off the street and sidewalks. Soooooo we have no excuse for not walking mommeee. I hope she heard me. Hee hee about that. Hey Maverick, you out there? What are you doing?

Santa’s Reindeer

Hey guys I got great news. Today I saw Santa’s reindeer. I think they live in my neighborhood when they aren’t at the North Pole. Maybe they are having a vacation here. Anyway it was REALLY cool. Here’s what happened. Mommee and I were walking (it was what she calls a mini walk. HUMPT) She said Stevie look at the deer. I saw one big dude. He had really big sticks on his head. I looked for a red nose but didn’t see one. I guess that wasn’t Rudolph. Then I saw 3 more deer that didn’t have sticks on their heads and 2 little guys. They walked really slow and didn’t seem to care that we were watching them. I wanted to ask them if Santa Paws was with them but mommee said no. They looked happy so I think they were on a vacation. It was fun.


I bet you are looking at that title and thinking walking is kind of boring or maybe what is there to write about walking. Well, here is the problem. My mommee and I have a walking routine. We walk after breakfast (we rest right after cuz mommee says that is important) and our walk is soooo neat. Then we walk again later and last we walk after dinner (yep we rest again before the walk). Ok, so that sounds wonderful but here comes the problem. The snow came and mommee says, “O Stevie it is too cold to walk now” or how about this one, “O Stevie there is ice on the ground”. I mean really what does the cold or ice (not sure what ice is) have to do with walking. I LOVE taking walks because it is fun, super dooper exercise and I have a a toy to carry. I will tell you about that later. I think mommee is kind of a chicken or maybe she just doesn’t understand that I don’t care if it is cold or who knows why ice is a problem. Anybody got some suggestions for me. I REALLY want to have our fun walks again. Now all I get is “OK Stevie we will go for our walk”. THEN, you won’t believe this, we walk to the mailbox and home. THAT IS IT!!!!!!!
