big hike

The Warm Up
















if i had known
how far it was
i never would have gone

i didn't have a clue
the hike
would be so long
Hot Dog

The Carry
and boy 
that sunshine sure got hot
as we walked on 
and on


i got so tired 
that i was glad 
when momma came along

she carried me
for a bit
the hike to not prolong


after a break
i walked some more
i once again felt strong
The Second Carry

when michael
scooped me in his arms
singing his silly song


i didn't mind 
his singing
as he carried me along


i walked some more
and finally
when i could not 
go on



we were back
and i was glad
not to be dog gone
The Cool Down

Gulf Breeze Zoo





Yesterday I went to the zoo with my sister Melissa and her husband Doug.  It was a great day and of course the baby gorilla was top attraction.  You should have heard the tigers fighting! 

Hero






Doug Middleton is my new hero.  While we were at the Gulf Breeze Zoo yesterday he noticed a parakeet stuck with a thread from a rope around his neck.  We notified the closest Zoo worker who, with Doug's pocket knife and help freed him.  She took him to be checked out and returned him a short while later.

sunset beach on the atlantic ocean


i went to the south
and i went to the coast
i camped in a park
though i like houses most

now i'm back in gulf breeze
and disgusted to say
i came home with fleas
now i don't want to stay

even momma is ready
to start the drive back
so get busy painting
let's hit the road jack

Life in Florida stinks for me . Literally.  Something has my digestive track out of whack.  I am spending a lot of time in the bathroom. Really, that's where they are putting me when they (Becky & Mom) go out and have fun.








These are some of the things I missed.
Poooooor me! :.(

 Do you know how bananas grow? These are growing in Becky's yard.  She has two kinds. The dark ones are called Jamaican red.

We are havin' fun on our road trip.  So far we have visited with friends in Omaha, NE, Leavenworth, KS, Tampa, FL and now we are in Naples, FL.  We also spent a week in Gulf Breeze where Grandpa Neil lived.  Mom was helping Auntie Bridget and Nathaniel work on the house. I only got paint on myself twice. I have been a pretty good traveler and mom says she's glad to have some company while she is driving.  Here are some pictures of our trip so far. Here is a picture of me with Marylou on our way to Omaha. The other picture is of me with Mickey one of their two Kerry Blue Terriers. Mickey was my favorite. She's older than me.
