Loch Albert

Floydie and I decided we would show you all around our neighbourhood this morning.

Are you ready? Lets go!

If you take a left from our front yard and head down hill a short distance you get to...

My loch.

It's called Loch Albert, the birds love it. The humans complained, they were hard to photograph, because apparently Floyd and I were a bit too boisterous for them...


But they did manage to get a photo of some duckies...


And this guy... Not sure what he is...


And a Crested Pigeon...


Right near the loch is the primary school my human went to when she was a little girl.


Next to the school is Crooked Creek which feeds water into the loch. The water it low at the moment, but not long ago it was in flood, and the bridge got washed away and had to be rebuilt.


On the other side of the creek we saw some fellas who were nearly as woolie as I am at the moment...


Floyd and I hope you're having a lovely weekend and that you enjoyed our little tour which was cut short by rain.

  1. Of course we enjoyed it. So what's a little rain during a tour? I particularly enjoyed the wolves in sheep's clothing.

  2. Great place to walk. Too bad they wouldn't let you loose to REALLY chase those birds!

  3. Great tour... After reading this post twice, I still don't know what a loch is... is it some kind of birdy? ducky? or swimming chicken?

    Wow, you live where your mom grew? Isn't that just too cool?

    Huggies and Cheese,

    1. Oh sorry, Loch is the Scottish word for lake...

      Yeah, we live only 2 and a half blocks from the house she grew up in. It's a nice place to live.

  8. Wow, that looks like a great place to live. We are lucky too, as we have lots and lots of walks straight from our garden gate. And Bobby thinks its fun to chase birds too, especially the black ones. Me, Finlay, I like to hunt out squirrels, but they are just too darn quick and nimble AND they can run up trees - so not fair.

    RooOooodles, Bobby & Finlay

  10. I don't know how I missed your post yesterday! My apologies. Ma was cleanin' (a RARE occurance for sure!), and didn't spend too much time on the puter, so she must have just missed it! Anyhu, I think your Loche is just lovely. I say, be as rauchous as you want (Floyd on the lead looks just like ME!!) I am sorry to say I must have taught him a thing or two while he was hidin' out in my tunnel....sorry.

    Kisses,

    Ruby

    1. Hah! I doubt Floyd picked up any bad habits from you! He already had plenty of his own!

  11. I like your neighborhood Dougall, you know why? Because I see lamb choppers there.
    Thanks for being a friend
