Walkies At Nightingale Woods

In between chatting to lots of our friends at the DWB chat pawty, we had a very fun walkies this morning. We went to Nightingale Woods. It be a great place to run around, and not many people seems to know about it. That be a shame in one way as we never meet many other doggies, but it also means we get to pretend we owns a big woods all of our own, whee!

Of course, Big Harry had to do the boy thing as soon as we arrived and do pee pee on lots of clumps of grass.

He said he be lighter after that and could run around better, tee hee! Me thinks the poopie he did helped too.

He be running around lots all excited and he bited his tongue, what a silly billy. It bleeded lots, but he no minded. Luckily we didn't bump into anyone as he looked a bit scary, but it soon stopped bleeding.

We did some racing. Me can run faster than Big Harry now, whee! My ears be all streamlined in this photo, tee hee!

He can keep up fairly well though, no stopping my big brother.

Even with mummy's super whizzy new camera, sometimes we're just too fast.

Big Harry just loved going off the path to have a good old sniff in the undergrowth.

And me finded lots of my current favourite snackie of Dandelions, yummy!

Mummy says they will make me pee pee lots, but me no cares.

Mummy wanted to take a photo of Big Harry, but me wanted to get in on the action.

Mummy thinks this photo be funny as we kind of look like we've swapped tails, tee hee! Mine be the longer undocked one of course, but it looks like me has Big Harry's tail.

Mummy took a photo of these pretty wild flowers. They be called Cowslips. Me didn't eat these.

Big Harry still be pretending he be in the jungle.

And look! He be cheeky and poked his tongue out at mummy.

We both be so happy running around. Everything be getting nice and green again now that spring be sprung.

Me likes to lead the way, cos me be little bit of a bossyboots.

The path be all windy, so you never know what's around the corner. We meeted 4 doggies, two Border Collies, a brown Labrador and a little cross breed.

We tried to camouflage ourselves in the woods. Do you see me?

As you can see, Big Harry still got plenty of energy left for running and exploring.

And he always comes running when mummy and daddy calls him now, what a good boy. Sometimes when he come out of the woods he be bit confused which direction to go in, tee hee!

We finded the pond, but we don't be water babies, so no swimming for us.

Me tried to have a little drinkie, but daddy said it be to yucky and dirty and that we had water back at the car.

But me had to check for myself, and actually it be quite tasty!

It be a great walkie, and me think our happy faces and big tongues hanging out say it all!

hi Cassidy, we have to agree that you two look very happy. we think that running and exploring is just the greatest thing to do. it's fun when you have the whole park to yourself, but it's also fun when more doggies join you to make friends and play with.

that tail photo sure is funny. we like that. we like all of the photos. we love to see you having fun in nature.

Wow, what a pawsome place to run around freely! I've not been in the woods before but have been in the forest once. Are they both the same? Anyway, hope you both had a great time! I can see that you did.

Love licks,

Cassie Girl!

Your mama's new whizzy cam takes bootiful photos of you and big Harry! I keep going back to look at the two of you running and laughing at your crazy mama. Those last 2 photos should win an award, or at least be in a museum!

I'm so glad you got to go for special walkies with big Harry. He has crazy ears and you have very obedient Airegirl ears.

I'll be thinking bout you at your first show. Be sure to sing loudly and dance like the wild girl you are. You'll win FOR SURE (that IS the kind of show you're doing, right?)!

Goobery love & tiny kissies,

Penny & Poppy said...

What a great off-lead adventure you had! You both look very happy! We hope Harry's tongue is all better now!

Aire- hugs,

That looks like so much fun! Harry has quite a huge hike for a pee! But I bet it was the best pee ever! Both of you have great flying ears as you run...makes me want to go out and play so that my ears can fly in the wind and my tongue can flop around!

Finni said...

I like drinking from ponds and puddles too. That was a great walk! You and Harry had loads of things to do. You know the peepee thing is an essential security thing with us boys - letting everybody else know we're here (and finding the way back!) I do about 30 at the beginning of every walk especially if it's a popular dog walking area.
Bye for now.
Finni xx

Joe Stains said...

omdog those were such wonderful photos we felt like we were almost there. You guys do look like you are having the best time!

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh what fun we wish we were there with you!! We LOVE Harry's ears and your tail!!!!! Love A+A

erin said...

That looks like a great walk. You're so lucky that you don't have to be on leash all the time like me.

Huskee Boy said...

Woweee... what a lovely walk you had!! It's so fun to be able to walk off-leash. In Singapore, it is some requirement by the law that all dogs must be leashed when they are out.. bummer..

T-man said...

What wonderful spring pictures!! Mom likes your word "bossyboots" :) Also the picture of the cowslips which we've never seen before.

You're lucky to get to run free. Dogs have to be on leash where we live, unless we're in our own backyard.


Girl Girl Hamster said...

What a pawsome day out. You 2 sure had lots of fun running in the "wild" there. ;)

That's some leg lift Harry's got there Cassidy. We heard about Harry biting his tongue, hope he's ok now.
Cassidy you've grown up overnight. Now you're faster than big Harry. What a gal!
It was great chatting with you on the weekend.

Hugs and tail wags

Hello Cassidy, Hello Harry.

We loved chatting with you. Cassidy, we hope JH's naughty talk didn't upset you too much. He really is a sweet, fun (if slightly dopey) guy!!

We also loved all the photos of the two of you running in the woods. How wonderful that you can run off leash like that. We wish we could do that!!

You both look so happy -- and that makes us happy!!

Peanut said...

Happy can sure lift his leg high for an older guy. I'm impressed

William Tell said...

That looks like a great place for walkies. Mom never lets us off-leash anymore, since three terriers can go nine different directions at once. Too much to keep up with, I guess.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Momo & Pinot said...

Cassidy & Harry!!

Too bad that we missed each other at the chat pawty!

Jessie and Jake said...

Wow soo many pictures, we feel like we experienced it with you - our mommy say thank you for all the nice pictures.

Mango said...

Love those action shots. Harry, my man, you still have it! I bet that water tasted really good. I honestly don't know why momma is always changing the water in my pool just when it gets lots of dead bugs, tree sap, and other misc. stuff in it.


Tofu Burger said...

Cubby said...

Oh My Goodness...what big dale tongues you have!! Your mom better change careers and start photographin' Dales...she's awfully good at it Harry and Cassidy!!

Babystan swooned when he saw how adorable you are Cas...he's unconscious on the floor...he's breathin', I you still have ur white tummy spot??? I was thinkin' of dyein' one on my tummy to make me more attractive to Archie who keeps passin' out when he sees me...

Barkin' at ya doggies,

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Don't get me wrong...the pills taste good. I just don't like the side affects. So uhhhh maybe don't let your human see what it does! But if you have allergies it totally helps!
