Birthday Loot and Hiking

This is all the birthday loot Mom got from me and Dad! We got her a Ridgeback ornament, (although it really doesn't look like me) a cool frame for her license plate so she can proclaim to the world how much she loves MOI, (BOL!) a book for cool hikes to take with your dog, (can't wait to see where she takes me) and some snowshoes. I even have some "snow boots" but I don't want to talk about them right now because they feel so icky and weird on my feet...maybe I will chew them up when Mom's not looking....hehehe! We also went for a hike yesterday and then after that Dad took Mom out to dinner. (I was stuck at home for the dinner part-RUFF, BOO-HOO!)


Here I am leading the way up this super steep hill! I look tired because I had just met two dogs and we did a few speedy laps through the grass!


I like to stay in between Mom and Dad...that way I can check and make sure Mom is still making it and she hasn't collapsed down the hill somewhere. BOL! Don't tell her I said that!


Mom calls me Skippyjon Jones when I look like this. If you don't know who Skippyjon Jones is then click on the red link.


On the way down, Mom gave me a treat for being such a good girl...here you see I am starting to sit in anticipation of my treat.


And here I get my treat but if you look closely you will see I didn't sit all the way down. BOL! I totally tricked Mom!


As we were almost to the bottom we spotted a little bushy tailed creature. I was quite fascinated by it but I couldn't get close enough to say hello because there were too many sticks in the way. It stayed very close though and let me look at it for awhile. What a fun day!
