Creep me out

Now we have been on many adventures but I gotta tell ya, this one has them all beat. PL1+2 were told that a GREAT place to take your dogs walking is the Forest Hills Cemetery .It is very old, very beautiful, has many famous people there and also has great outdoor art exhibits and "happenings"there and dogs are allowed.That 's right you read correctly.... a CEMETERY.Now I ask you ,how much do we have to put up with....but we went. Archie was a little more creeped out than I was .

We noticed all kinds of funky things along the way(besides the OBVIOUS if you know what I mean) There were outdoor art exhibits(EXCUSE ME have these people heard of museums??!! )

In the beginning of the summer hundreds of people gather around this pond at night(what's the matter with a little sunshine??) and each person has a little lantern with a candle and they put them in the pond. It is a Buddhist ceremony and is quite beautiful( or so they say...NO WAY are we going there in the dark)

this is a tribute to ee cummings the poet by his " site"...we were allowed to stand on it......and it has copies of books of his poems in it.I am trying to read to Archie but he won't stay still....

Archie thought for a minute that he saw the Loch Ness monster but then he remembered he was in Boston. I think he looks like Archie in a clam shell....

Look at the size of these leaves!!!! I could seriously hide a lot of toys here.

A quick roll and off we went.

Besides the fact that it did have a creep factor, it was very pretty,very artistic, and pretty quiet if you know what I mean.I think I would prefer a little coyote action though.....

Hi, friends.
I don't know if its right to say that you have great time there at the cemetery but sure you had it!!
Sure I am not brave enough to go there at night!!
Coyotes give you more action!
Have a nice day

Happy Labrador day

OMG we were in a cemetary on Nantucket but unfortunately mom lost the pictures due to her stupidness with the camera! grrrrrrrrrrr We sorta thought it was fun roaming all around and trying to find new sniffs!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hi A+A buddies!
My mom has been there a long time ago - she likes e.e. cummings a lot. I think I might be more of a Dr. Seuss guy myself. That clamshell is really funny!

Your friend, Lenny

Hey, A&A!!

Your parents take you to some of the coolest & weirdest places. I liked the photos and there were some funky places to hide & explore.

The creep factor was a little high (in theory), but then when I see you two there in the middle of it, the creep factor goes away. How can anthing involving a WFT be creepy I ask?

Goober love,

Surely a couplea wireys weren't afraid! And I wouldn't be so sure the Loch Ness monster isn't visiting Boston. One time a dog at our park got bitten by something underwater and everyone said it was a turtle but I know--it was a LNM. Probably on vacation.

A&A...that place is just too cool...and what was with those giant leaves...were they legal?? You guys could be some pretty mellow wires now? There is no way we would go in there at night. Don't you have that dude with no head cept a pumpkin riding all over the place???
Happy Labordoodle Day...Scruff & Lac

Surely two brave WFT's weren't scared...


fee said...

Joe Stains said...

Faya said...

Nice place for walkies !

Koobuss said...

You guys go to the most interesting places, but that's the way Boston is.

What's next? A romp with Paul Revere?

Love the photos!

Koobuss Kisses,

I like Gus' comment. GOOD ONE, GUS!!

What a fascinating place to take a walk! I think you might feel less creeped after you've been there a few times.

Archie on the half shell was too cute!

Hey pals, how cool is that! There are two cemetaries near where I live but dogs aren't allowed in either of them, so I've never been inside. J x

Linda said...

Hey A&A,
The tree sculptures were pretty cool! Archie did look like he was inside of a clam, hehehehe. We don't think we would want to go there at night either.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
