Our new short hops, easy on gas, Chevy Cruze waited in the driveway for Lily's first test ride. Would our GSD ride in the back seat without causing a rumpus? Remember she was a transplanted farm dog not use to riding in a car....
Off we headed for some hiking in Forestville State Park. During the summer months it's overrun with people and horses. In the fall considerably less. We headed up the blacktop to the "horse camp" and some great loop trails....
So far so good with the backseat rider as she showed a lot of patience. Once on the trail though she was anxious to head on out.
awesome! i just love that sweet girl of yours.ReplyDelete
Beautiful dog's those Shepard's, and quite the protectors!ReplyDelete
Beautiful spot you live in. Your dog seems so sweet, too.ReplyDelete
Oh good. That good behavior just guarantees her more fun adventures! She is a very smart dog indeed. :)ReplyDelete
Good for you finding a pet friendly rental this winter! They are hard to find! I have been looking without much luck.ReplyDelete
I have a Cruze too..Black with beige leather interior, we have a old quilt in the back for Chance...he is a good rider. We like the Cruze for trips and it usually gets between 36 and 38 mpg...I did get 42 once...must have been a downhill wind. Living on a dirt road sometimes the black drives me nuts...I hope you like yours. I enjoy the heated seats in the winter and the remote start...spoiled. Our other vehicle is 4 wheel drive...on account of the snow:(
So lovely, Trout!ReplyDelete
I love that girl. She's a real prize, and I'm so glad she is now part of your family. :-)ReplyDelete
It's called getting to know you. It's important that we get to know the dog and that they get to know us.ReplyDelete
She'll make a great traveling companion!ReplyDelete
Wonderful! Glad it worked out well.ReplyDelete
My Lily has flown and enjoyed the rideReplyDelete
The hiking spot looks great. I wish my sister and I were brave enough to take my daughter's dogs hiking. How fantastic you found a place with LAND to take Lily with you to Florida!!ReplyDelete
Beautiful fall foliage. Hope winter this year is a bit gentler this year. Have a nice and safe trip to Florida with Lily.ReplyDelete
It is such a sweet surprise when the new dog loves to ride in a car. Way to go Lily. Callie also turned out to be a born passenger.ReplyDelete
That cabin on the Gulf sounds marvelous for adult TB's and Lily. Looking forward to hearing about that stay.
What gorgeous color! Most of our leaves came down in a week of torrential rain so thanks for sharing yours. Your adopted dog is a keeper.ReplyDelete
Also, thanks for your kind comments on my daughter's song!ReplyDelete
You had some lovely early fall colors. I'm glad Lily will be able to go on your Florida trip!ReplyDelete
Excellent! Lucky YOU, Lucky Lily!ReplyDelete
Troutbirder, I apologize for being so far "out of it" because I have not been good at blogging, or visiting anyone, for quite some time! I just completed a little back-reading to learn more about Lily. Isn't it fortunate that you have not only inherited Lily, but that she is proving to be such a good companion? I personally like that she is a German Shepherd! :-)ReplyDelete
As a lover of doggies, have u read "The Art of Racing in the Rain"? Fabulous book.ReplyDelete
Another, not as good but still sweet, "A Dog's Purpose ".
A cabin on three acres sound terrific for your winter get-a-way. Lily will love it! -- barbaraReplyDelete
Glad she did so well!ReplyDelete
Florida sounds like a fun getaway.ReplyDelete
Enjoying the beautiful Autumn weather has been a real treat for us Minnesota and Wisconsin residents. October has been lovely.
I'm glad to hear that Lily passed her 'car test' with flying colors. I'm sure all three of you will enjoy the Florida trip. It sounds as if you found a great cabin for your visit.ReplyDelete
Great photographs. It's so nice to have a dog that travels well.ReplyDelete
Sounds like Lily is becoming a fantastic member of the family. Glad she gets to go to FL with you in the winter.ReplyDelete
Your hike looked great. I love to hike in late Fall/winter ---when there aren't so many people around too.... (And when it's not so hot)...
I published a cute blog today from our vacation in Cataloochee this past week. Check it out if you haven't yet.
My dad drives a Chevy Cruz, as his work commute is a long one.. he likes it!ReplyDelete
That's fantastic that Miss Lily gets to go on vacation, she's certainly found where (and with whom) she belongs. :)
