Murdo Girl…the road trip..Dog Blog

It’s me, Cyndie Lou..I’ve got the dog blog job tonight. MG has a headache. She complained all day about her sore head.

Maybe if she would quit wearing that stupid hat she wouldn’t get a sore head. It happens every time she wears a hat. She gets cranky and growls at us for the littlest thing. MG with a headache is almost as bad as when her eye twitches.

To top it all off, we went someplace today that wasn’t dog friendly.

We saw a bunch of old guy’s faces carved out of a rock and we canines couldn’t go near them! It’s not like we can lift our leg on them or bite their big noses. What did a dog ever do to them, I ask?

We didn’t stick around there very long. We obeyed their command and high tailed it out of there.

Let me paws here for a minute. I want to throw a ball to you. I love my little cocker spaniel sisters, but do I look like their mother to you? They’re twelve in human years and I’m only seven, not to mention the fact that I am NOT a cocker spaniel. I don’t have children and I like it that way. On a bad dog day, four or five people ask my humans if I’m Pattie and Sammies’ mother.

I know what you’re thinking. I’m like a dog with a bone and I should learn how to let it go. 

The next place we went to had another face carved out of a rock. It had an even bigger nose. They named this one Crazy Horse. I bark at horses, but it didn’t come to that because there was no horse…which did seem a little crazy to me. We canines got to walk around in designated areas which were hard to find.

Oh yeah…this bronze is of fighting stallions.

MG and Kip must be hard up for fun. We drove more miles than I can chase a stick. We went to Custer State Park and saw Sylvan Lake. I kind of liked the lake, but the winding Needles Highway upset my stomach and Sammie got the “NO” word for whining.

The only good thing about today is we left the cat back at the closet we moved into. Although, when we walked in, she didn’t act like she’d missed us that much. I wonder if she had more fun than we did…

Excuse us…we’re talking.

I thought this was going to be another fab trip. The kind where we go fun places and ride in the mobile dog house.

How I long for the good old dog days.

    You take great photos! Were you your mom’s teacher? I once camped out at Sylvan Lake with a camp church group. A really loud and drunken kegger moved into the site next to us! Scandal. (Mary, at least 2 times out of 3, I put my comments in the search bar rather than the comments. I then have to select all, cut, paste. And half the time for some reason the comments bar disappears after I mistakenly type my comment in the search bar. Drives me crazy!!! Is there any way to put them further apart, just for my comfort? I don’t have this problem in anyone else’s blog!!! Whine whine.

        I think it has to do with which pattern you choose..or under appearance. I really don’t expect you to change it. Just had to grouse a little. Probably just my own ineptitude. How dumb can I be, doing this over and over and over, even when I’m aware of it and trying not to. This last time when I did it, two search bars showed up with my writing in both of them. Am I haunted? Seeing double? Cursed? Drunk? Not drunk. I’m on antibiotics….xo

        She/he is one BIG cat. She looks as big as your Cocker Spaniels. Is she? Perhaps just the photo.

    What a nice job Cyndie does in telling your story. It is nice to get a dog’s point of view.
