More walking!

Sorry I haven't been around commenting on your blogs, the peep is still doing her walkies challenge (today is the last day) which has kept her away from the puter, but Floyd and I are still reaping the benfits. Yesterday the other peep decided he'd come for a walk too, so both us pups got to go!

I went to the groomer today, so I am looking very handsome
We walked around the loch again (she likes it because once you get so far, you may as well do the whole track because it's not like you can take a short-cut across the water!).

It's pretty thirsty work, but the loch is still closed because of the toxic blue-green algae, so we can't drink it, she brought our little bowl with us instead...

She took some more photos of the water, so you can see how yucky and green it has gone.

The loch goes like this most summers because it gets a lot of water running off near by farms, which is full of fertilizer. The fertilizer is pawfect food for the algae which also loves the warm weather... I don't know what the peeps can do to fix it...

So, without the water fun we have to be content with just the walkies... Here I am at the half way point...

They have those posts all around the track (pawfect for leaving peemail). We all think the third sign down is pretty funny... No Pooping Allowed! ....BOL!

We saw this guy when we were on the home stretch...

He scuttled away quickly, I can't believe the peep was quick enough to get this pic! Doesn't he blend in well with the bark on this old gum tree!

It was a great walk, I hope we get to do it again soon, but boy does it make us doggies sleepy!!


Like I said today is the last day of my peep walking challenge, if you would like to support the great cause she has been walking for, to help women and girls who live in developing countries, pawlease click this link to make a donation... Any small amount will help!


Obi is still not home, he was last seen on Wednesday but not since then... We are going to help the peeps put up some posters today, I hope it helps... We are SO worried about him...


  1. Oh, poor Obi! Thank you for helping with the posters! I am sure someone will find him soon - I know his peeps must be awful worried!

    That water is very disturbing.

    Hahaha - no pooping. Like you can control it or something. Silly sign.

  2. Yep, get them posters out, as cute as Obi is, we bet some one has picked him up.

    Great walkies Dougall, that sign post may us Giggle, what you gonna do if you gotta go, hold it for 2 miles, think not!

  3. OMD OMD they have PEE MAIL POSTS???? THAT is so very much THOUGHTFUL of the Peeps to have put THOSE up fur you!!!

  4. At least there wasn't a sign showing no pee mail! You'll have to get your mum signed up for another walking cause!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. NO POOPING? I want to see the moron who put that up not poop for a week. We'd need to watch to verify.

  6. Nice walkies.

    Oh….I hopes you find Obi.
    Pees… make sure you come see me or Stuart tomorrow.

  7. HOwdy Mates, great walk even if you couldn't play in the water. Hope you pee mailed all over the posts and left messages for your friends. We hope your friend Obi is found soon! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  8. Great walk Dougall & Floyd. We had the same problem with one of our ponds on the park. In the end they had to put air filters in it as the water was actually poisonous because of the algae. Our paws are crossed still for Obi.
    Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  9. The color of the water was perfect for St Patrick's Day!
    Our paws remain crossed for Obi. We hope he's found soon!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  10. Oh, that is sooo thoughtful of the peeps to put in pee-posts for the pups!! That looks like a FABulous walkie though!
    So Sorry Obi isn't homes yet. I'll be keepin' my Paws crossed real tight for him!

  11. Loved to see your walk.It is fun seeing strange and mysterious creatures when you are out.
    We hope so much Obi finds his way home again.

  12. We hope Obi gets home very soon!!! We were relieved that Floyd's lawyer got him off! We were scared he'd rot in prison! Just stopping by and getting caught up on what everyone is up to. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Your Pals Back From Vacation,

    Murphy & Stanley

  13. Dougall, you look so handsome with your haircut. You and Floyd deserve a rest after that nice long walk. I am crossing paws for Obi. It makes me sad to think about being lost.

    Loveys Sasha

  14. What a lovely walk you got to take! Thank heavens Floyd got out of the slammer. We are very sorry to hear about Obi. Mom says it must be terrible for his parents so we are gonna send some positive thoughts their way!

  15. You boys are lucky lads! Nice Walk there. So sorry to read about Obi - hope he gets reunited with his proper family soon. And like Duncan, we're sending positive thoughts.......

  16. Congrats on winning the Beach Bingo game. Lennox have a cheap(ish) Region Free DVD player if you don't have one....just a thought.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
