There was lots of wood areas and lots of good sniffs!
Lots of boats, daddy said they were putting them back in the water at the marina, and hey this guy was out in his speed boat!
Even some pretty wild cherry trees in bloom!
I gotta tell ya Aunties the weather man didn't tell us bout this wind, just bout blew me down!!
And it Did blow down this branch from a magnolia tree, Great sniffs! Too bad they aren't blooming yet I'd Love to sniff that!
Hmm where next Aunties, there's Lots to see! How bout this way!
Looky here Aunties, it's a bat box and a beaver dam!!
Let's keep goin!

Ooh and a nice area to sit here!
Mom says she could look at this little stream forever!

This is kinda how My day went with their stories!!
I'm happy girl Aunties! I sure hope you enjoyed my day as much as I did, memory lane and all!
And now Aunties I'm Beat! Nightie night! ❤️Missy
Oh Aunties today was family day and mommy and me planned a trip to a little town called Occoquan, I can't Wait to tell you all about it!!
heres the sign that tells you some bout it! It's an old town from the 1700s, you know how I looove history, the best old smells in the world!
This way Aunties!
it's really only one Main Street, no lights or nuthin! And brick sidewalks, very nice on my paws!!
This is the Main Street, but they didn't call it that probably cuz of the mill! Anyway lots of old places, but see the sign says there was a big fire and lots of the places aren't here no more.
But what's here has some Great sniffs and lots of places hidden down small walk areas!
Ooh an looky at this Aunties- mom an me thought this was something else-they used this rock to help us ladies outta the buggies back then!
But I Really wanna tell ya bout the smells round here, they're Great guys! I wanted to spend a lot more time checking out the history of this tree but we gotta move on!
Check out this old mansion, I wanna go up there and check out the sniffs but lots of guys are working round it...
So we'll check out this guy instead! They used this bunker to store carbine, they used that for the lights back then!
The next few pics tell ya bout the history, if you wanna read bout it.. if not just move on to the next pics of Me, they're waaay more interesting anyway!
Hey looky guys, I seen Lots of doggies down here today but here's one like Me! I ran over to meet him but ooh he doesn't have real good manners, he kinda scared me.. but his mommy says he's still a puppy that's why he's all bouncy!
Oh Aunties the lady here at the museum was soooo nice, she let me come in with mommy and daddy so I could see the museum too! It was very nice with Lots of history that mommy an me read- daddy got us a couple of books too so we can read more!
We're coming up to water area now Aunties. Cato I know, as a hunter, you're gonna be interested in this and following the water for the game! This town is on the Occoquan river, which then flows into the Potomac river, which then goes into the Atlantic Ocean. So yeah the birds you hunt, when they run and get away, which I Know isn't often , they just go cross that Ocean and maybe, just maybe come here! We saw Lots of eagles, and geese and all kinds of other birds today- you woulda loved hunting them!
Heres the bridge they were talking bout in the history thingy above Aunties! And it's a foot bridge so we coulda walked cross it, but we didn't, maybe next time!
Instead we went down to this Great park!! And waaay at the end, where you see that black thingy, that's the dam! There was Lots of water works stuff an daddy told us how it worked, cuz he's smart like that!
All I know is it's Gorgeous out here Aunties, such a nice breeze and oooh I Love looking at that water, very pretty!
Ok Aunties- breaks over! Cuz I'm on a Mission now, come on!!
Oh first mommy wants to show you this gate, cuz she just Loved it!
Ooh Finally, here we are, at the bakery!!
This is what I'm talkin bout Aunties! A Bakery and Store just for Meee! Well mom an dad can come in so they can pay and carry my packages!
Oh Aunties I got some delightful fish treats! I just had one, yummmy!
An now for Lunch! I had a choice of 4, yup 4 restaurants that would serve me! I chose this one!!
And I was such a good girl, I laid right here and let mommy and daddy serve me my turkey!
Ooh what a Wonderful day Aunties!
I'm happiest girl in the whole world right now, I had such a Great day!hope you enjoyed it too! ❤️Missy

Oooh Aunties what a day I've had! Mommy says every month we're gonna have a family day an do an outting! So today was gorgeous just like spring so mommy changed our holiday to Today!! We got up early and went to my favorite outdoor cafe for breakfast, so I could have Lots of energy for our outting!! No pics cuz well we were too busy eating!!
Then we were off to our Church cemetery, we like going there, it's real pretty and peaceful!
Mommy didn't take a lot of pics here but you can see the old Chapel in the background of these! I'm sure we'll go there again and I can show you more, we just stopped here quick today!
The Real treat was this other cemetery that momma's been dying to go to... Get it Aunties..dying to go to... I just crack myself up!!
anyway.. It's a real old cemetery, from the war! Here you can read all about it!!
here's the entrance!
And here's what the sign says-
oooh and Look Aunties here at the base of the flag- that's pieces from the old Church that fell down...
Here Aunties, this way, let's Go!
Heres some really neat old headstones! Daddy says this ones from a guy in a way old war and you can see what unit he was in! Daddy knows all that stuff, he's smart like that!
And look at this Aunties, me and mommy never saw one with bars around the sides like this- neat huh?!
So whatcha think these 'B' thingys mean Aunties? We saw lots of these with different letters...
Oooh an look at this, very pretty!
Ooh an look at these!
Wait what's that?? Over there by itself!
Oooh it's Lord Fairfax! WOW he's a Really important guy around these parts, he's a hero from a really old war, they even named a city after him! I didn't know he was here, this is special! Daddy says he's buried way away from his city cuz he can't afford the taxes to be there!!
Look Aunties, here's bigger pieces from the Church that fell down, they said these were 'Angel' stones. I dunno what that means cuz I don't see no Angel, do you???
Ok Auntiies this is where it gets Real interesting... See that house over there? Yeah the orange one.. We didn't wanna get too close... So the story goes- after the original Church fell down they built again and this house is it...
Oh let me back up... So ya know that old Church that was here? Ya know the pieces in the pic above, the one that fell down.. They say it was taken over during the war an made into a hospital to treat the soldiers, right? Soooo they Say that when they had to amputate they threw the body parts All into a grave... Somewhere around here.... Me an mommy figure it's Gotta be somewhere by this house, Right?? We looked an looked but we didn't find it, all the ones we found had names... But Maybe they put a name on it to trick us, huh?
LOOK Aaunties this headstone is Cracked... Do ya think that's where them body parts are??? I ain't never seen a cracked headstone before...
And Look, What's This??? Mommy says this is where they put little doggies who walk on graves... Gulp! She says I was a wild child today cuz I hadn't had a walk in so long cuz of the cold and snow an an I Forgot my Cemetery manners....
Mommy says the ghosts are gonna come after me tonight and I'm on My Own, she ain't gonna protect me cuz I was all over the place in the cemetery.... Ooooh I'm soooo outta here Aunties!
Still I Did have fun and I hope you enjoyed my cemetery tour as much as I did Aunties!
I'm off to sleep Now while it's day light... I think it's gonna be a looong night with those ghosties tonight... Missy
Oooh Aunties I woke up to Snow, I'm soooooo excited!
I got to run and play but it Really wasn't much snow was it??!
so I waited and waited and mommy made me a big snow breakfast, ya know so I'd have Lots of energy to play! An then she said it was time to go play!!

But Now for My news!!!
Aunties member when that big doggie came and wasn't nice to me a few weeks ago? Well I haven't wanted to go off our property since then... And mommy was Ok with that, she even let me go in the woods! She said she didn't think the ticks were still out but even so they weren't as bad as that mean doggie!
Sooo that was Ok, but I Missed my Friend! See I go check on my friend just bout every day, mommy wouldn't let me get close cuz she thought I might upset him... But I wanted to go off our property the other day and see him and mommy was happy bout that too! And it just Wonderful cuz his mommy was out and said I could go see him Anytime I want!! His name is George and I Love him! Mommy didn't get a pic of us kissing but we did! Isn't he Gorgeous?!! He's much more My size and Sooo nice!! Gotta go so I can go see Geoge!! Missy
i wanted to get on Real quick and give you an update! Mom said I could have a few minutes, I Really miss being here so mommys trying to let me be on more! Anyway I went to my new vet this week to get my second flu shot so I can stay there! About 2 weeks and I'll be going so I had to check it out again. I Love that place Aunties I just go in there like I own it and Everyone there likes me and says I'm pretty and guess What Aunties I weigh Less there too- ooooh I Love that place!
Anyway mommy had him recheck my ears and they're doing Great and my new meds work and I don't chew on my feet and oooh its been a great change for me, I hope mommy lets me keep going there, so much different than my other vet.. And he looked at my unicorn horn too, I think mommy told you about that already and Auntie Pam told mommy the right name! But I Like unicorn cuz mommy says they're beautiful magical creatures just like me! Mommy tried to take a picture after my bath yesterday so you could see it but I really didn't want her to... It's on the left by my eye.. See it? The dr said it was ok something called benign, it would keep growing and I think when it gets bigger I'll make it Pink so I can be a Pink magical unicorn! Mommy says we gotta go now! Hope to be back soon! Missy
Aunties, me and mommy haven't been around much and probably won't be for awhile... We Really miss being here and wish we could be around more but see daddy has to have a big operation. We found out he has a bad growth, mommy said it was something called malignant, I don't understand but I know it's not good... And they have to go take it out and maybe some other stuff, I don't know..
And I have to go be boarded cuz mommy can't take me and will be gone a long time. Yep I gotta go get a flu shot today cuz the only place mommy trusts to keep me says I need one, well two really, this is the first one today.. I'm scared to go Aunties, I never been away from home before or sleep without being by mommy before.. Mommy's gonna take something that smells like home for me though. Guess I gotta be a big girl for mommy and daddy..
Anyway things aren't very normal for us right now, Mommy's all over the place. She's learning to do a lot more daddy stuff and even is going to learn to drive the tractor! Now that should be funny aunties cuz her feet don't reach the pedals, I think I need to operate them for her!! See it's getting cold here fast, it's in the 30s in the mornings! And mommy and daddy have to get everything ready here for the winter and mommy has to learn it all too, there's Lots she doesn't know and never did before..
Yeah I had some Great blogs to do, mommy even took all the pics but she hasn't been able to put them on here... And now they're old...
I didn't get to go to my dogtober fest Halloween party neither cuz well daddy wasn't up to it.. But mommy let me dress up anyway and make this to wish you all a happy Halloween!
Will see you when i can, hugs to everyone!❤️Missy (and mommy)

Soooo he was moving wood from one of them this week and guess What he found! A snake, yup a snake in the wood pile! Ya know the ole sayin, well we have em! Daddy kept finding this one cuz he wouldn't kill it! He said it was a 'good' snake, mommy says there isn't such a thing and if he killed it he wouldn't keep finding it!

Mommy was the picture lady, she could handle that cuz duh how hard was it to identify?!! And daddy was the bug man, he was tryin to determine time of death! But silly daddy he said 12-24 hrs but that Can't be right! Know why?? Cuz the day before the FedEx man got stuck in our drive, he was here almost all day, at least 5 hours to get him towed outta here. Yup I went and told All my friends, mommy let me walk through the neighborhood just like the town crier tellin all my friends! Sooo see Aunties it Had to be less than 12 hours old, That's why I'm Bones, I'm Smart!!
Well Sooo then mommy did a full doo, haircut, b*** word and all on me But right Before I went in the b*** guess what daddy found?! Another snake in the wood pile but this time it was a Copperhead... Ick.... And while I was in the b*** daddy was wrestling with the copperhead... Daddy won!! Here ya go Aunties, look he's still tryin to Bite! Daddy said this makes his 42nd kill and member he doesn't kill those 'good' ones... Just the bad poison ones that would hurt me.. Like this guy...
It sure was a long hard day so mommy let me have a nice rest on my warm blankets just outta the dryer to end my day!! Hope you enjoyed my day as much as I did Aunties, I just Love being smart like Bones! I'm a bone findin bad snake killin Tzu! ❤️Missy

Soooo see Mommy's Always been a spring planter but me an Daddy well We Think, since she's getting better now, she should plant some flower stuff this fall, yup we do! So we're gonna help her with that!
We're fixing up an area in the garage for all her yard stuff!! There was actually a nice day, yeah just a couple of em... But we got out on one of them and first daddy swept out the garage, I couldn't be around for that -- I could be allergic ya know!
So I went and climbed the dirt hill! Much better!!
Then I got to go in daddy's shed, I Never get to go in here!
And I found all our building stuff for daddy!
And I even brought some stuff back over to the garage!
And now, I'm just waitin on Daddy!! Hey Daddy here I am!! I Know he'll be here soon.... Won't he?!!
Daddy put stuff up on the wall for mommy to hang all her garden stuff up but then it happened... Yup it got waaaay Hot again and so there we have it Aunties it's a work in progress! Hope it gets nice again and we can finish Before fall planting!
Meanwhile mommy had a Big surprise for me, a package! Oh boy! See mommy can't find my favorite food at the stores here so she started ordering it from chewy! Here's my box, oh boy, what did I Get?!!

Aunties I've had an incredible week so far and it ain't even over yet! I just had to share it with you!!
It started off with mommy saying we had to get back on a schedule now that she's been off her tick meds a week- mommy loves routines and so do I! So Mommy's been grooming me every day so far, and I even had a Mani Pedi!
Then mommy added back in playtime- oh boy! I like to play Before i have my doo and get all purdy for the day!
And then she added more time for me to go outside and play, cuz she can stand for longer now! Look at the fun I had earlier this week!
Oh dern mommy had this Great video of me but shes worked a long time trying to figure out how to get it on here and she just can't do it, nope she's just a dumb bunny! so here's some pics instead..
And what was on the other side of the fence you ask?!! Touche of course!!
Then I Finally got to take mommy for a walk yesterday, just a short one cuz she's trying to get used to wearing a real shoe again!
Here's our walk!
Some Great Sniffs!
Some Queen Anne's lace by the road
Look Aunties some Baby pine cones, ooh sure hope fall is here soon! All our leaves are changing already but mommy says its cuz its been soooo hot...
A real purdy feather- I took it home for dad to put in his hat!
Mom says I look like a hound here with all my slobbery drool! But geez it was soooo long since I got to go have good sniffs!
Ooh and look Aunties another sign of fall, Bucky is getting his antlers back- yes fuzzy antlers! he's getting ready for Santa's sleigh ride I just Know it!!
And Sammy collecting and burying his nuts! he likes to tease me up on the fence like that-- but you just wait Aunties one day i'm gonna catch him!
And Then, as if all this wasn't enough! Mommy's neck puller traction thingy came in, I helped her pull her neck out and she felt much better so she wrestled with me!!
Geez it's been Sooo long since we've played and walked Aunties, mommy says it's been about a couple of months, but it seems like Forever! to mommy too..
And, and then I got to do a blog, oh Yes, sharing all my good fun with all my friends is The Best!!
oooh, I'm such a happy girl!! I can only imagine what the rest of the week will bring!! Hope you're having as good a week as I am Aunties! Missy
Hi Aunties, Me and mom haven't been around much for awhile now cuz quite honestly I've been taking care of mom... It wears me out cuz she is an Awful patient.. They say we are stubborn, hah they don't Know stubborn!
It all started back when mommy woke up with her eye swollen shut.. Umm No I Didn't kick her in the night! She had a stye and an eye infection and had to get meds like I got for mine. It's better now but for some reason her eyes are still blurry so she don't see so good.
Then she had to go in one of those tubes, she called it a MRI I think, cuz her whole left side goes numb and tingles. And so she has to go have her neck pulled out all the time now, traction I think she said, cuz her disks are disintegrating and pinching a nerve. Geez must be her Last nerve cuz well honestly Aunties you're probably the lucky ones not having her around much!
So yeah, life was actually still Ok at that point. Then mommy went out to water her plants and the grass out front was tall from all the rain.. An her plants were up by the woods... And mom was in a hurry, to go have her neck pulled out.. An umm yeah.. She got a huge tick and it wasn't pretty.. She had an awful reaction to it, not like anything she'd ever had from a tick before. So the dr had to shut down her immune system cuz nothing else would stop her reaction. And yeah... Ever since then she's been on meds for Lyme disease. Both her an daddy have lyme now. But since mommy got hers she Really hasn't been worth much... No playing, she's Always tired, and not much energy.. So daddy's doing a lot for me And for mom right now. I Love when daddy feeds me! Mommy says I'm gaining Lots of weight, that she can hardly pick me up, but I think she's just Weak! Ain't that Right Aunties! can't be Me!! mommy said I needed more exercise cuz ya know she really can't play much with me and our walks had to stop with her being sick and all this hot weather...
soooo mommy tried to play with me the other day Oooh Aunties I can't hardly even talk about it.... Well she also gets these awful leg and feet cramps now and yeah.... She got a really bad toe cramp and she sorta kinda landed right down on her toe, right into the hardwood floor.. yup you probably guessed it... She Messed up her toe real bad! Oooh Aunties I Really need a new home right now, mommy is a Mess!!
I felt sooo bad for mommy, i been her nurse and takin care of her ya know..! Yup I have, I've been her medicine pup! I gave her my new himalyain chew I got for my bday, here Look! I put it under Mommy's pillow so she can sleep with it, if It doesn't make her better Nothin will!!
And I do ancient medicine doggie chants over em, it has to be Real dark for the chants to work, hope you can see me! And so I gave her my Second himalyain chew too! Yeah mommy felt bad that I gave her my chew sooo she gave me Another one! But I just buried it under her pillow Too! Now maybe mommy will get better doublely fast!
So anyway Aunties That's why me an mommy aren't around much or for very long when we are.. Mommy's arms an stuff go numb and she can't do much typing.. you have No idea how looong it took mommy to type up this note... I only thought she was slow before! so we're here when we can be for now.
Oh speaking of taking looong... Cuz of all this mommy can't really groom me too much or for too long neither. So, it took her Forever, but she cut me down. Here I am but You Won't recognize me! And yeah member mommy still can't see good so yup I'm All crooked. And she has that bad toe too, not sure What All it caused but I'm sure it figured in this awful haircut too somehow!
hoping to be back more often soon! ❤️ Missy
