Remember I said I was bored with walking on the road? Just some silly donkeys and cows to look at and I know all the smells around there, soo boring. I guess I was heard because daddy took us up a hillside where we'd never been before.
Mommy said this is the hill that she and Soldier tried to climb last year, but they didn't get far. Daddy said that's because they tried to climb straight up the steepest side. Even I would know better! Up the side, you go. Daddy was a mountain and rock climber so he too knows how it's done.
About half-way up, mommy and daddy sat down and rested and checked out this view. And did some smooching too. I saw them! Angel was breathing hard, so she rested, but I got busy digging in the soft earth. All kinds of wonderful smells came out from the earth and I was a happy boy because there is almost nothing I like better than digging and getting my white fur dirty.
Here I am checking on Angel. You know, she's awfully old and I have to keep an eye on her.
This is the sight we saw after we rounded some bushes and came up on the backside of the hill. Lots of little houses where people live were spread out all around. I'm glad they're not close to us. We can't see any houses at all where we live. Sometimes mommy uses some big black things that she puts in front of her eyes. Then she can see a farm in the distance. Why she would want to do that I have no idea.
Here we are, daddy and me, at the top of the hill! We made it and enjoyed the view that was spread before us.
Here I am with my tongue hanging out. Catching my breath before we head back down and home. You can see how dirty I got my face!
Have a nice day everyone!

What fun you had, Samson! Did Soldier wait patiently at home?ReplyDelete
that sounds like awesome fun for all of you!ReplyDelete
What a great hike. I've seen so many areas like this in the 20 years I lived in California :)ReplyDelete
Woof! Woof! Samson ... I hope you fetched Mom & Dad's slippers for them after the walk?ReplyDelete
Hi Samson .. that sounds like a really good family day .. and I love that you're so isolated - must be fabulous to be alone amongst the stars ... glorious shots - thanks for sharing with us - HilaryReplyDelete
What a beautiful walk, Samson, the views are breath taking!ReplyDelete
It looks like it was a great hike! :)ReplyDelete
I'm thinking that you're a fine companion to have on a hike. I bet you find all the places where other critters are hiding. What impresses me most about you, though, is the good care you take of Angel. She's blessed to have you as a buddy.
Please woof "peace" to your Daddy and Mommy.
Oh how I wish Moon, Copper and I were there!...:)JPReplyDelete
Smooching in front of the kids huh?? Way to go.ReplyDelete
Climbing is so much fun Samson but if you go too fast it's not so easy on the ticker...be careful hear! You Papa climbed mountains...that is way cool you know. Maybe Mama has pictures of Daddy doing that..curious! Beautiful vista on the hilltop..so lucky to live where you do! Cheers!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful walk and perfect day to be outside taking in the amazing view and fresh air!!ReplyDelete
It was so nice of you to check on Angel. You are a good boy, Samson, and pretty too!ReplyDelete
Oh Samson, what a beautiful adventure for you!! I love the pictures and Angel is just a sweet as ever.ReplyDelete
Gracie says 'Great #1 picture Samson. Does your heart still belong to me? And are we still working on our attitudes?'
Tell your mama we send our love - and hope she's doing well!!
It is so incredibly beautiful there - I'd love to go on one of your walks!ReplyDelete
Hej Samson! Vad fint du har på dina promenader. Ni bor vackert. Du skulle gilla skogarna i Sverige tror jag. Hälsningar från Tyra, Ayla, Trym, Vilja och KonjakReplyDelete
What a great hike, Samson!ReplyDelete
Looks you all had a great time and the view is really wonderful.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos.
Samson, here's the deal, what do you say if we trade walking trails for a day! You can have a great walk by the ocean and we can have a great walk up in those fantastic hills of yours!ReplyDelete
what do you say,huh?
Samson, you look like you had a wonderful time. All of your pictures seem to show you smiling!ReplyDelete
Awesome! I felt like I was right there with you, Samson.ReplyDelete
I'm so excited to get your reaction to my memoir, Inger - and your friend's reaction. Christmas IS coming - faster perhaps than we want it too!!
Have a great weekend.

It looks like you all had a wonderful hike! The weather was perfect for it.ReplyDelete
Love the photo of your hubby and Samson looking out over the hills and valleys. :)ReplyDelete
I'm beginning to think, if you snipped it just a little here and there, this would make a great story book series. Seriously! Anyway, something to think about.ReplyDelete
Great pictures. Nice hike!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Samson Says: Just one big, huge, thanks to all of my friends who like to read about my adventures. Jacqueline: I will discuss a book with mommy. You know, no one EVER suggested she make a book of one of her posts! So I'm a proud dog now.ReplyDelete
