Rotten Egg!


This week we jumped in the car,
as we always do 
and headed for the park,
as we always do....
however the big surprise that greeted us
as we pulled into the parking lot
was more than I could handle....


I began my DoodleDance
see I'm lifting my left paw...
for you see
Maggie and Mim
had decided to go for a jaunt
at the very same time.


The Gods are on my side today...
so much that Maggie and I 
decided a dip into the fr-fr-freezing
North Atlantic was necessary 
to cool us off.
Mr. Orangie needed a squeeze too
he's all full of water...lol!


At he end of the beach we decided that a cliff climb
would be more exciting and shorter for us all.


Straight up, Mim said
I can do that because I'm a Capricorn
(that an 'in joke' between Mim and Ron because they are both Capricorns)


We waited patiently for the humans
to reach the top and then...


Last one to catch Mr. Orangie is a rotten egg....!

Who do you think was the rotten egg?

  2. I had forgotten that saying, it brings back memories from years ago, and I had not associated it with you Sophie. Lovely swim, too cold for me!!! Lovely new header photo too, you are so photogenic, or is it your Daddie behind the lens?? Greetings from Jean

    1. So happy that I could flush out some happy memories. I used to say this all the time while playing 'tag' and such. Sophie doesn't believe in being last in anything...spoiled or what!? However the other day she was surrounded in puppies and they were all over her....she was a trooper and enjoyed every minute! Sophie is a ham when the camera is around, so needless to say many photos are taken and a lot of fun going through them and choosing those for the blog!

  8. Climbing that cliff looked like fun, Sophie! I don't know about that dip though. I'm trying to get myself out the door on a COLD day for a walk. Brrrr! Yesterday was gorgeous, and today is bitter out. Stay warm.

  9. No way were you the rotten egg, Sophie. Walks with your dads are great...but to meet a friend? Magic.

  10. Well, Ms. photogenic-star-of-the-fantastic-header-series, your happiness just dances right off the screen and into my day! Tell your dad that expression about the rotten egg is part of my childhood memories too. Sometimes, I think I may have been the rotten egg but I don't remember caring about that one bit :) As for you, I'm doubting you achieved rotten egg status, but if you did, I'm betting you didn't worry about it any more than I did. This is a bit off topic but I'm curious about something. Black Jack has a habit of tailgating when we're walking on the sidewalk behind someone that she considers to be a little bit too slow. Do you do that as well?

    1. Yes ...rotten egg dares were very prevalent in my Dads' days...so very long ago...oh hahahahhaha.....now they throw out these "old fashion ideas" and expect me to manage...oh just throw the ball and I'll show you who's the rotten egg with a capital R!
      I'm not allowed to tailgate...I'm in "heal mode" when walking with my guys...if I decide to veer off off, going ahead a bit we do a 360 degree wide turn healing and back to position again. Actually I feel better and more secure with this positioning. We practice the turns clockwise and counter clockwise. It took awhile but I have it down pat now. Hope this helps with Black Jack.

      Sophie Doodle here!

  11. Sophie! Happy Sunday to you, sweetie! I love your new magnificent header. :) I wonder if i could do the cliff climb? Alas.. i'm a Leo, not a Capricorn. But i might still be able to keep up! Going for walks with good friends is one of the greatest joys ever

  12. Beautiful photos! And it looks like you all had a lovely time. I would bet that you were not the rotten egg. Am I right?

    No snow there yet either, huh? It's very dry over here. We'll see what happens from not until Christmas. A little snow would be nice!

    1. The 4th photo was so much fun to edit....I tried many choices and outta nowhere this one just worked...the effect is so cool so rustic and warm. Yes the water was ChillyWilly...seals would love it though....you know there are seals at the point at the end of the land view there. They are quite far out. Must try to capture some even on video!

  21. Such beauties! All four of you. No rotten eggs there, even though I'm sure Sophie got to the ball first.

    1. Life is a game, isn't it!? Sophie turns everything into a chase and being 1st...although sometimes, just sometimes, she doesn't get to the ball 1st...that builds good character, I think!

    2. I wonder from whom she learned this,pray tell?

  22. You could never be a rotten egg!
    But I must admit I check every beautiful photograph for eggs, and didn't see any.
