THE SUN!! COME ON LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well,FINALLY we have had a few days of good weather!! Now this is going to be a longer post because it seems like YEARS since we have been outside!! So sit back, we have lots of movies, and join us at our walk with PL1(PL2 had to work and was really bummed she couldn't come) at the Chesnut Hill Reservoir!! This used to be a working reservoir, but then it stopped being a reservoir and they have just finished making it into a lovely walking area.We were SO excited to be outside that it might seem like we are walking a bit fast in the first movie and actually we are..... I kept saying COME ON LETS GO!!!!!!!


video



Here we are outside the fence.Archie can't believe what a nice job they have done(you don't know what I had to do to drag him away from his cooking show on TV, He said he was learning how to make cream puffs.....this is a phase that better stop soon....)





I thought it looked pretty good myself........


We found a map and of course I took charge....






I was a little sad we couldn't go swimming but PL1 said it was a little too deep for us......



Isn't it pretty?








These swan kids came out of no where..and they came RIGHT over to us!!!!

This particular kid was trash talking to Archie.......



He called me over for back up and this kid decided two against one wasn't a good deal(smart move...)




This is a cool tree....


Lots of people jog here....


Now this was on our way to the reservoir but PL2 is having a hard time moving pictures on blogger so it is down here..Of note in this film there is a demonstration of synchronized peeing....


video



PL1 found this....... Check out what kind of dog they use!!!!







He felt obligated to take one......



This is on one side of the reservoir... It was a Water Works building and now????Yep condos...





This was also a part of the water works( where the pumps were) and now we think there may be a museum inside.....


Another pretty view...





And then........what happened???????WATCH CLOSELY......a CHIPMUNK darted in front of us( please note who is doing the lead on this investigative hunt and who is just sort of hanging around.......) Well it really was a job for a Junior Earthdog.




video

On the other side of the reservoir is Boston College..that is the football stadium..This is a big thing in Massachewsitts....where Doug Flutie went to college.He made that famous Hail Mary pass........) We will have to have a tour of B.C. one day.....






Now in our next film we would like you to note the 8000 geese that are hanging around..Now usually Archie goes NUTSO with them around,but not today. Why you might ask?The wind was blowing his ears straight up and he said he was enjoying himself.......We are hoping we have good weather this weekend so we can have some more walks in the fabulous sun!! We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!! (Archie is hoping his TV show will be repeated so he can see how to put the filling in the puff...)

Agatha, That looks like a fabulous spot to walk ..... and swim. If I come back, I will take you for a swim on my back because nothing is too deep for me. I just got back from swimming in the river on the north shore. It was really nice and I chased a bunny! But mom was really mad, because there is poison ivy in the bushes. What can I say? I'm only doing my job.

Ciao, A+A!

Heeeeeeeee!!! La mia ragazza and I had big giggles over your synchronized piddling demonstration -- what skill and timing you have!!

Lovely walkies, miei amici, and in such a pretty setting. I hope your weather stays sunny so you can have lots more days just like this one!

Tanti baci!

We loved all the videos! I can't believe you were THAT close to getting the chipmunk! Mom loves the food channel too, maybe she and Archie should hang out. We loved all the views, thanks for sharing!

Faya said...

Maggie and Mitch

Dughallmor Beagles said...

Very cool post.....we loved watching your videos and were especially impressed by the synchronised peeing! Snoop & Alfie do that but not as perfectly timed as you guys, hehe :D
The reservoir park looks lovely, love the old buildings also (they turn our old buildings into housing too)
Hope you guys have a lovely sunny weekend and get lots of nice walkies!

Mango said...

How nice to see the sun again. I could only watch one of your movies due to problems with my Firefox. Ugh!

You finally got to stretch your little leggies and do some serious pee-mail. Lots of ground to cover.

Slobbers,
Mango

Agatha... not to worry about Jake. He watched the chipmunk-chase video carefully. Several times. There is hope now that he knows that part of the fun is in the pursuit, not the kill.

We loved seeing your walkie. It makes us a bit homesick, but we know there are lots more fun things for us to do here.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. We're hoping you continue to have some sunny weather.

Luv,
Miss Fergi (and Jake)

the 4 Bs said...

hey kiddos, that's a beautiful park. it's too bad that there is no swimming. that would have been fun. it looks like you enjoyed the wildlife there - swans and geese and chipmunks. we hope your weather stays nice now so you can go for lots more walks to more interesting places.

woofs.

Eric said...

Oooh Twinnie and Step! Hip Hooray! The sun put his hat on at last for you! What a wicked place for a walkies, it's looks lovely, specialy when you two were in the picture. I loved the mutt mitts box with us on it and then the syncro pee ing..HAAHAHAAA.. can't stop laughing at you two PEES in a pod!!Bet we would do that too eh twinnie?

Hope Archie gets to learn how to stuff the cream puffs (he needs a piping bag but he can sub with one of our poop bags)and you catch the chipmunk and you both have loads of walks in the sunshine. Wiry weekend!

Love and a trillions kissies, Eric xxx

Koobuss said...

Can you believe what a beautiful day it was yesterday!I loved going on the walk with you! And most impressed with the synchronous peeing! Precision pure precision.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh my...thank doggie Stanley wasn't there for the geese part...whenever we're on a walkie and we see geese, Stan has to be carried cuz he freezes and won't move and tucks his tail and looks totally petrified...we've been worried before he might faint...that'd be a THUD, huh?

Now, that film of you both synchonized peeing is the best yet...has it been nominated for anything????? It was pawsome!!! You started and stopped at the exact same time!!!

Are you guys going to Petey's wedding???? HINT HINT HINT???

Love Lacie and Scruffy and Stanley

Toffee said...

A & A -

That reservoir looks like loads of fun! Mom has been there running for a marathon training run before and thought it was bootiful.

Agatha, thank you so much for coming over to help with my recovery (and keeping Lacie in line!).

see you soon?

Toffee said...

btw...mom has monday, tuesday and thursday afternoons off (and every other friday)...

Mango said...

We got the buffalo bones at the Especially for Pets doggie store (I don't know if there is one near you, but there is one in Sudbury you could check out next time you go to the Framingham VET).

Tell Archie to keep working on his pee pee form. No point spraying straight up.

TwoSpecialWires said...

UPDATE!! Jake is totally getting into hunting lizards!! Every evening he takes his stance (inside) looking for them out the window.... studying their behavior and improving his identification skills. And, more importantly, outside.... IT'S ALL HE CAN THINK OF! Whenever he goes out for potty breaks, he immediately lunges for the perfect lizard lounging areas - leash taut - Moma gripping it firmly - and makes a mad dash in pursuit of the scampering little amphibians. YOU'D BE PROUD!

Now.... it takes all the energy out of him... he's sleeping.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Agatha and Archie,
Glad that the weather's cleared up and you can go for a walkie.. Wow, your reservoir is lovely!! LOL.. Hershey is trying to convince me to practice your 'synchronised peeing' with her so that we can perform it someday..

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

Hi A and A
Great weather still.. can u believe it? I hope Archie gave up the afternoon soaps for the sun! Do you guys go swimming anywhere? Looking for another swimming hole to try?

Fenway said...

I can't wait to get back to MA and want to visit your reservoir. I know just where it is!

I'll be sure to deal with that swan...she looked like she was having a hissy fit at the sight of you two.

Did you pee on that wonderful tree? It looks just like the talking tree from the Wizard of Oz. Leave me some Pee-Mail next time you're there!

Your pal,
Fenway

Sherry said...

What a beautiful place. We went to a park the other day but the only birds were up in trees. They're no fun to bark at.
