A Hike of Bad (poofy) Decisions

So I'm back to tell about another one of our hikes we had in North Carrylina. It was too the spoooooky woods, one of our favorite hikes we go on each trip.

This time, it had (notice HAD...warning bells people!) rained the day before and that morning so the woods were all foggy, which is perfect for the spoooooky woods trail. So we loaded up and took off. When we got there, mom asked dad "Should we take our raincoat pullover things?" 

Dad: "Nahh...it's nice out" 

DING DING DING BAD DECISION ONE!! (I think you can see where this is going..)

So we get out, no one else is there, so I get to run free. We get in the creek, mom starts taking piktures and then realizes.."oh crap, my camera battery is about dead and I don't have a charger"  Ughhhh BAD STUPID DECISION TWO!!!

But we did get a few creek pics:

That's it...the rest will have to be through my artist renditionings...

So anywhoo, we get to walking and we're having a good time, then we think we hear a BOOM....

Mom: Was that thunder?

Dad: Nah, I think it was a car on the parkway....

We keep going DING DING DING!! BAD DECSION THREE!!!! Since when does Mom EVER listen to dad?!?!? WHEN?!?!?!

Well, we go to the end, then start heading back...it's over a mile back to the car...and then we start to feel small little drops...you know that moment when you kinda just hope it's bird poop? Nope, it's rains...from the sky....

Mom and dad look at each other and say some four letter words I'm not allowed to say.
I'm fine, I like water.
Duncan also says some choice words and gives mom and dad the stink eye....

It then starts to rain. Hard.

We stop at one point under some foliage for cover. I'm good. Dunc's pissed and mom says:

"I have water going down the crack of my (edited for younger readers) butt ...let's just go!!"

So off we go...and it's POURING! We finally make it to the car where:

Dunc's all wet, poofy and pissed...
Mom and Dad are soaking wet...all the way to their underpants...
Even I'm not too happy, the rain is beating down my ears...funs over.

So then mom got the smart idea to go into the people potty shacks and dry off and change into her nice dry rain coat, so at least part of her be dry...dad did the same...Dunc and I stayed wet in the back of the car.

We was soaked to the bone. It took about four towels to get us puppers dry enough to go in the cabin. Mom and dad took warm, intentional showers and we called it a day!! It took Dunc about the next day to dry and un-poofify. The next day (and rest of the trip) our car smelled like wet peoples, wet dogs and just WET!

It was so much fun!!! :)


  1. OH YUCK.. your Hikemobile smelled like Wet PEEPLES?

    I love your artistic rendition of what you and Duncan and your mom looked like. VERY GRAPHIC.

    I am very much sorry that.... THEY didn't Lissen and Learn.

    I'll bet you wish your IN THE FURS FUREND.. SHAWNEE was there with you.

  2. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! OMD! Anna, I saw the warning signs in the first sentence! Oh, how clearly our humans see in retrospect! I don't know how you managed to stand the stink of wet people in the car all the way home.


    P.S. I didn't want to write this, but Kuster begged me. He has PANO right now and he wanted to know if you wanted to come over and be his nurse. I told him you'd never fall for such a thing, but, well, it will make him happy that I asked!

  3. Oh Boy.....that sooooooo does NOT sound like fun. We hates the water!!!

    Mama did giggle a little tho....

  4. Ummm, was that the day we was supposed to go on the Super Seekrit Mission before it was rescheduled? I do not even go outside to pee in the rain. I mean, a shepherd's ears can only get so flat you know. Then the rain rolls off of them and gets our furs wet anyway. I has to say I is with Duncan on this one. Yup, that be me when mom dragged me out fairy stone hunting in the rain, wet, poofy and pissy.

  5. My Mommy always says that Daddies don't know nothing. I hope your peeps are ok and of course all of you. I bet the car smelled great, I wish I could smell it. I hope you have more fun soon.

    Loveys Sasha

  6. Ohhhhh Nooooo!
    What a day of BAD DECSIONS it sounds to me like you had one heck of a day, but it all sounds like a fun adventure to have! I love your artist renditioning, that picture is sooo cute! Love you with the flat ears! so funny! I hope you get to have a nice walk in the DRY soon and I hope that the car is less smelly! I laughed sooo hard that you said that Dunc took until the next day to get dry and un-poofify! Heee,Hee!
    Love, Licks and Hugs from your Furiend Frank xxxxxxxxxxxx

  7. Oh dear, and oh well - we can't always expect our humans to make good decisions. Humans always complain about the smell of wet dog - what about their being wet too? BOL

    Hope the next day's adventure was a drier one.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  8. Oh no!!! I don't like heavy rain and get all wet! I hope all of you are alright now and your humans did make you all dry and fluffy.


  9. RAIN?! Ugh, I hate the rain.
    PS. the picture you drew cracked me up!

  10. Ugh. I've had hikes like that, complete the same series of bad decisions... I'm glad that you just got wet and didn't get struck by lightning!
