Focused as usual along my trail 
now covered in clover
 sprinkled in daisies!

Follow me and I will show you 
my find,
my discovery!

First a FULL 90 degree downward SNIFF!

as completely all intoxicating

as even a simple group of stones
with a mini-palm tree
(at least in my Doodle mind, it is!)

Ron's arm was a bit wonky as he clicked me here.

OK, what is that over there,
all alone by itself?

Oh a silver white tree stump surviving the storms / gales / floods
so relentless in these parts.

But as I have always said,
"Find your clover and you'll find your happy place"

so enjoy a wee bit of happiness with this remix!

I do see you!
Do you see me?

FULL FACE w/Mr. Orangie wave slide!

FULL BODY slam into the wave ~~

and completely OVER!

No wave stops me !

I know my waves like the back of my PAW!

HEAD'S UP and slice through the BUBBLES!!

Leaving my TAIL to finish off the fetching session.

This WALL of WHITE doesn't phase me in the least.
I survey it and ~~~

over I go!

Such is my JOY in the MORNING,
 with a flip of the TAIL
a gallop of confidence!
I have finished off my exercise and swim for the day.

Standing just over the edge of the slope
soaking up
feeling every nuance

as these two work their way down the field above the beach

realizing that everyone felt just the same

 at peace and harmony

I always feel that way beside my Dads

I trot along set for step

knowing that I have no worries when they are calm
and at peace with themselves.

Looking out the side window on the drive along the roadway

this song drifts along with us.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Hi there!
I'm high on the trail atop MacDonald Hill.
(high on life that is, winkers!)

Always surveying the cliff  making sure it hasn't fallen away too much.
After all we had a whooper of a winter 
followed now by rains
causing erosion on one of my favourite trails.

Now this trail along the Atlantic View Trail
always intrigues me.
How did it get there?
What animal or human decided it was a better idea to cross through the bog
than going around?

With all the wetness,
it doesn't deter me from making my scheduled rounds
on the endless trails in my garden.

Our walking trails are citified too.
The Dartmouth Waterfront Boardwalk
was my best surprise this week.
This manicured pedestrian harbour walkway
was a more controlled walking trail.
Notice the leash!

After my swim at Birch Cove the other day
my body trailed water marks every where.
No chance I can hide from the towel that is heading my way.

Such is my little bit of
which as you may have detected makes me
So as Roy & Dale Evans always used to sing 

Yes, many Happy Trails to you all!!

BUBBLES ♫♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♫♪

This week has been as especially grateful week.
I am getting up by 7 AM to walk the beach
with the sun slipping above the horizon
melting the fog away
Ron has had great news
that his heart is doing really well.

Hi everyone!
Do you see Ron waving and myself looking off to the far east?
I love bubbles!

"X" marks the spot!
At least 1/2 an "X", 
kind of difficult holding a camera with arms outstretched 
to complete the "X" effect.
SO we must use our imagination, right!?!

The bubbles are all colours of the rainbow.
Always a thrill to see what nature has in store for us
on these early morning walks.

Look Ron is inside his own bubble!
No surprise there!

The unexpected is always so perfect.
Crouching down 
clicking the camera
Bubbles full of Ron and me.

Bubbles and Rope
Didn't I tell you it was a very special day!
Heart you, Ron!!!

I'm always looking for a good time,
just ask my guys!
Where ever we visit I make a point of inclusion ~~
(all you teachers know what inclusion' refers to)

I use my beacon tail to signal that I'm here ~~

the thickness / colour / curvature

send out to everyone around that 
I am in charge
so if you can handle it
come on along ~~

I am dreaming now.
Dreaming of my romp the other day with 2 Doodles.
Check us out below!

Do you see our connection!?!
3 tails standing tall
3 different colours
3 different Doodles
We had a blast
literally Tailgating each other.
(OK, hand over Mr. Orangie,you!)

Firstly, I stare at the guys
every morning 
which means
"let's go for a walk"
on the grassy dunes.

This time of year the wild strawberries are in full bloom.
Abundance is what I am finding,
~~ everywhere strawberry blossoms ~~

I'm a DOODLE ON A MISSION as usual,
so the rocks above the beach
need a complete sweep

with the new flock of surfers taking over the waters
I must make sure they are in safe waters

That's mighty exhausting for an 8 year old DOODLE,
so I'll plunk myself down here 
gnaw on Mr. Orangie for awhile!!

followed by a 
of monumental proportions!

That FEELS so good!
(try saying that with your tongue sticking out of your mouth!)

so THIS is
my INNER PEACE routine
pretty much daily.
Sorry but I must continue on,
my nose has picked up
a scent
a sweet aroma
a mind-blowing fragrance,
give me some time
I will figure this one out.
