Walking Along, Singing A Song, Side By Side

One good thing about having our houseguests last week was that it finally motivated us to do a couple of things.  The first thing was that it got us all going for walks together again.  Mr. Taleteller and I used to walk Treat and Blueberry together, but we'd gotten out of the habit.  Our winter here was particularly brutal and many days we couldn't walk any further than the turn out pen, even if we wanted to.  Having Action Jackson here required a change in our routine, though, and I feel that it's been for the better.  He needed to get out for some exercise every day and he is a dream dog to take for walks.  Emma was, too, and Bunny has gotten to be a wonderful walking companion as well.  Blueberry even kept up with us better.  I guess peer pressure kept her motivated.  She didn't want to be left behind.

It's been a pleasant change going for walks together, though, instead of by myself.  It's a time to talk and catch up and destress from life.  It's theraputic and good for us to get moving after the wicked winter we've weathered.  It's also fun to see the girls looking for signs of Spring.

The second thing we got out of it was that Bunny finally got a coat that was made just for her.  We had coats here that Treat used to wear that were beautiful, but a little big for Bunny.  We liked Emma and Jackson's coats so much that we ordered one for Bunny, so she now sports her very own brand new coat.  Of course, now that we have it, the weather finally decided to take a turn towards Spring, but she'll have it for a long time!

Blueberry Types for the Blog


  1. I expekht Dogue will be khontakhting woo soon!

    Khyra & Khousin Merdie

  2. What a relief to finally get some signs of spring!!!

    Bunny looks great in her new coat, even if she won't get to use it much more this year!

  3. More walkies is great! I don't think my momma would leave her comfy chair ever if not for us doggies.


  4. Walking with the hubby and the hounds, sounds about perfect gal!

  5. I love that last photo, neck gaiter and all!!

    More walks with dogs are always good, imo!!!!!

  6. Yep, out of every "bad" thing GOOD things come. Not that your visitors were bad, of course. I'm just sayin'.

  7. That's a great coat, and she looks lovely in it! It would be a little long at the back for Sid (he'd pee on it) but it looks just the thing for the wicked weather you've been having!

  8. What a gorgeous pick coat Bunny! Glad you are finally getting better weather!!


  9. Oh, oh! Is that a Voyagers K9 Apparel coat? I have a coat from them, too and I LUVS it. The Ninjas tried to eat it but it all turned out okay. Anyway, it's very Most Pretty on her.

    And I'm glad you're having such a good time on your walkies. It IS awfully fun, isn't it?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  10. Those coats are awesome. I mistakenly bought one with little "sleeves" so it pulls under Marge's arms and she really doesn't enjoy wearing it. What I really need to get her is a rain coat so that she feels better about walking in the rain.

    Your new routines sound awesome! I wish Marge was the kind of dog that I can take on long walks, but her fears limit her and we usually go on several short-ish walks a day.

  11. Great! Walkies again :) I think in the end, Blueberry will enjoy those the most. The coat for Bunny is incredible.

  12. What a pretty coat! Getting to go walkies with the other dogs sounded fun too.


  13. Mayzie, it is from Voyager's! I love a dog with a good eye for fashion!


  14. Deal here is simple. The Herd gets a walk everyday no matter what the weather. In return, The Herd does not destroy the house. Call it blackmail or call it exercise, the effect is the same.

  15. We love your new coat!

    take care
    Clive and the NSLM

  16. Lovely coat! Bunny is so good in pink :)

    Emma Rose

  19. Walkies are the best!
    Sometimes my mom comes home tired from work but as soon as I see her I know that is next... a nice walkie to clear your mind!
    Your coat is pawesome, Bunny!
    Kisses and hugs

  20. I may have to buy one of those. They look incredibly well made. She looks amazing in it...

  21. You look really nice in that coat Bunny !
    Love, Bella.

  22. My whippet Gracie Mae has that same coat. We live in California. It dosen't alway get so cold to need that warm of a coat. In Dec 2008 we did a road trip to visit my family in Iowa. So of course my little Gracie needed a warm coat.


We love hearing your comments!
