Outdoor Wednesday


Outdoor Wednesday is hosted by Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer. I thought for a while it had t be pictures of my garden etc but it doesn't. It just have to be a picture taken in the great outdoors.

For today's post, I wanted to share pictures of my Gizzy window-shopping w/ me in Red River, NM. The guys went fishing & me & my dog went shopping. ;o) Gizzy is such fun to take on trips, he's enthusiastic about everything! Here he is checking out the window display in this shop.

He looked & looked & then spotted a stuffed woodpecker. You can see it in the pic if you enlarge it. When he saw that woodpecker, he cried & created such a fuss that I took him inside & bought it for him. He carried that toy all the way down Main St. He'd drop it & look in the windows & pick it back up when we were on our way again.... to the delight & amusement of all the other shoppers. By the time we made it back to the hotel, that poor woodpecker looked like roadkill.



Here's my baby, in the car, on the way home from vacation...he's allllll tuckered out. I've had so many good times w/ this little dog. May God bless me w/ many more!


Be sure & visit Susan to see all the other Outdoor Wednesday posts, many are very interesting!

He looks like Dogman except Dogman has gray ears and he just got his hair cut in the same style=
Dogman is 12.4 years old now and has pretty much taking over the house with beds and blankies and chairs- he and papa hubby had matching leather chairs--LOL- not our orginal intent but Dogman knows how to be the top dog here-
hugs from Meme and Dogman wags

I love love loved your post about Gizzy! I'm the same way with my Dog Gadget. Friends forever! What a fun post!

Someone should host a "What cha doing with your dog today?" Day! That would be so much fun seeing other people dogs and what they do. Sorry. No offense to cat owners...

What a fun day... shopping with your dog! Your post made me smile!
