Dog Day Afternoon

Since I needed medicine for Murphy from the vet, I decided to bring him along. Of course that meant that Belle had to come too, because you can't take one without taking the other.

After the vet visit, went to Harpers Ferry, and the dogs were fit to be tied...on a stack of rail ties, that is.
We hiked around for a bit, and Murphy helped himself to a cool, refreshing drink from the Shenandoah River.
Belle was a little more cautious around the water, but she got her drink too.
We sat in on part of a ranger lecture about early Harpers Ferry, but a couple of dogs were antsy and refused to sit still, so we cut that activity short.
"He was kinda boring anyway."

But we did stop by the old engine house where America's first terrorist, John Brown, once holed up during his poorly-executed seizure of the Harpers Ferry Armory in 1859.
Uh-oh. Looks like someone's getting ideas.
"Come and take it, bee-yatches!"

"Best day ever, except for the ice cream shop being closed!"


  1. Love the adventures with the pups.

    You should write a book about your adventures with Murphy and Belle

  3. I love seeing their different personalities...Miss Belle is so dainty and Murphy, well, being Murphy.
