Walking with Woody

It was lookin' to be just another rainy indoor day...
a day with nothing better to do, but torment my sister Stanzie.

So were we surprised, when we got in the truck and headed to a new hiking trail.
And look who was there!
Cuzin Woody!!
Stanzie, Woody and I , pulled our people all around.

There were many new smells to smell.
And horse poop too!
Lots of little critter holes in the ground.

Then, on the way home we stopped at the grocery store.
Behind the store is a pond and a grassy area where you can spot Nutria.
Interesting creatures. They look like a cross between a Beaver and a Rat.
We ran for the water.

Not too shabby for a rainy day!


  1. Not too shabby at all!! That little nutria is kind of cute. We would have chased him for sure. No maybe not. We would have been on our leashes :-(

  2. That was a fantastic day! We love those surprise outings. We think we'd like to chase a nutria....heck, we like to chase most things.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

  4. What fun - goin' on a walk with Woody.....lots of peeps to pull around and lots of things to smell and bark at.....what more would we need??

  7. What fun to meet up with Cuzin Woody!!! We have never heard of nutria, hope we don't find any in our yard. We would definitely chase them away.

  13. How cool that you have Nutria!!!! We don't have those here!

  14. Most satisfactory indeed.
    Toodle pip!

  15. That looks like a muskie muskrat. He steals My apples in the autumn when they fall off My apple tree and he swims away with them to store them for winter.
    What a fun adventure you guys had!

  17. Ohhhh!!! A nutria! We don't have those in here! They look like giant furry rats ^_^. And I say that as a compliment.

    Cuzin Woody! That's awesome.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  18. OH WOW... what a grrrreat day!! Cussin Woody and a NUTRIA??
    I did not know they could live that far north. My mom and dad saw nutria when they were Louisiana ... out in the swamp area. They eat them down there. They call them Swamp Rats. hehehe

  19. It looks like you had a great rainy day. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    pawhugs, Max

  20. We thought we saw a nutria hit on the side of the road, then stopped to look and it was actually a beaver. They do look a lot alike.

  21. Wow, Alanis and I have neve seen a nutria. That looks like a fun critter to chase. (Oops, Mom heard that.)
