Enjoying my Environs

Hello everyone!

A few of you have let me know that I'm a lucky pup because there are so many pretty places to walk around my house. Let me tell you - that my arrival in this household has forced by pawrents to get and about to see them! Not to mention we are about 4 minutes drive to the beaches!

So today I want to show you another route through my suburb. Here we go:

 Heading out the driveway and up the street.

We have reached the first park with the gazebo in the middle - we walk through this one.

About halfway through. Yes my dad dad is carryin' my precious poop-a-doop in that little black bag. He's handy isn't he?!?

This is the next park.

Then this is the next one....... 

Next one - this one is a bit bigger.....

I did some zig-zagging and schnoofling through this one. Can you see some signs of Spring??

Mum giving you a close-up of "Spring evidence".

At the end of this one there are some pretty views of the Adelaide Hills foothills.

This is the next grass bit - there will be a bonus at the top of this one....

Hey! - a local pup - he is part Jack Russell and part Cattle Dog! We did a quick checkout and sniff....

Then we had a play while our pawrents chatted! His pawrents are Scottish and they asked if there was "a bit" of schnauzer in me! (*gasp*) Mum had to inform them I am purebred mini schnauzer - I just haven't had my furs cut over the colder months. So I look like a Wookie! They then told my pawrents that they used to have a standard schnauzer - and we were all impressed. (  note to self: I think the buzzy thing clippers will soon make an appearance :-(   )

Whew that was a fun interlude, but onwards to the next patch.

Second to last park - you seen this one before, it's the one with the duckies in the middle.

Me looking like a happy bunny!

Here is the final park - the one that is directly in front of my house....and I'm runnin' with dad dad.

There is a little duck pond here, and I'm gettin' my paws wet at the edge of it - dad dad has a tight hold on my lead. After mum posted this pic - she thinks she photographed a froggie by accident. There are heaps of froggie noises coming from this pond at night - but we have never seen one - until now! Check the water close to my right ear.... you may need to click on the pic to biggify......what do you think??? Is it a frog swimming??

I'm just pondering my park and checking that there are no peeps/pups on MY path.... I bark at them from my place if I see them!

Homewards bound..... I'm a bit gookky now - got too close to the waters edge!

And I resign myself to the fact that a b-a-t-h is about to happen.  :-0

So that is essentially walking in a circle around my house. The nice council left a "green belt" through the houses so as to present a nice park like walking area for us furbies and peeps. It's nice don't you think?

See ya nextime!

  4. Looks like a fun walk. Seems strange to me to see the end of summer hitting us here and the flowers of spring just coming out in your neck of the woods!

  5. Awesome parks, Rubie, we only have a few reserves and sports fields around us, but we're not far from the river...we usually drive there.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Your pal, Pip

    Nubbin wiggles,

  13. What?!? How insulting! Part schnauzer? Lol, as soon as you get your trim, I'm sure no one will think your're anything less than 100% schnauzer! I know I sound like a broken record, but you live is such a beautiful area! Even the area around your home is so gorgeous and green with all those parks!

  14. Hi Rubie, That looks like a great walk. Lots of grass, water and new friends. We are lucky Spring is here aren't we. Take care all. No worries, and love, Stella

  15. Hi Rubie, what a fabulous place to walk, you are spoilt for choice, it looks fantastic furtling ground! Cheeky monkey asking if you were 'part' Schnauzer, anyone can see you are like us, true blood Schnauzer! We have the longer look at the moment too as it's starting to get colder now, we like the Beatles look! Your beau Dex and your pal Lou xxx
