Today’s photograph is one of Shadow and Buster at the Basin, in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Although at certain times of year the Basin can be touristy, there are plenty of times you can find it quiet and peaceful. The Basin is full of flowing water, small waterfalls, and it is just gorgeous. I have been there endless times, and just love it. I first discovered the Basin with Shadow and Buster. Although this photograph does not do it justice, the boys sure do look handsome. They will be furever missed:

Here is an adorable photo of my Wilma and Gus, just chilling in the backyard. Gus always likes to get as close to me as possible, while Wilma is ball obsessed, and generally wants me to throw the ball. They are the sweetest and always keep me smiling. Here are my sweet pups 🙂

Happy July 4th!

Wilma, Gus, and I want to wish our friends and followers a very Happy July 4th! We have had a relaxing day and of course our annual hat photo shoot! I was not sure if Gus would warm up to the hats but he did and they both looked absolutely adorable ❤️ Hope you all had a wonderful day as well!

July 3, 2022 – Kayaking – Forge Pond, Massachusetts

Today Gus and I adventured to Forge Pond in Westford, Massachusetts. Although this was not out first Adventure to Forge Pond I have not blogged about it before…until today. Forge Pond is a 203 acre Pond located in Westford, and Littleton, also referred to as Lake Matawanakee. Forge Pond is reasonably developed with homes, has a private neighborhood beach, and a public beach. As expected it is popular for boating, fishing, and swimming.

We had a relaxing adventure to Forge Pond. We parked on the launch on Beaver Brook Road and off we went. My plan was to go through the tunnel and paddle along Beaver Brook. Gus was far from a fan of the tunnel but we made it through with few spider webs upon us (haha). I soon realized the paddling was not really an option due to the thick surface-seaweed so snapped a couple photos and headed back to the pond.

We then paddled out to the Pond. Gus was a little wiggly and antsy at first and it was quite windy so we decided to float and explore more then paddle. We saw lovely lilies, lots of adorable turtles and a heron, although difficult to capture on film. Even with several unexpected detours it really was a beautiful day. (This blog will not be rated).

Other Tidbits, Fun, and News

Today is the one year anniversary of precious Gus joining our family! It is one of those special days I will remember furever❤️ We had to pick him up at a quarantine shelter after he came up north. We checked in and soon after he was headed down the hallway. He appeared terrified but as soon as he was near me he fell into my arms… like he knew we were meant to be together ❤️ It was beyond amazing ❤️

I introduced Wilma and Gus slowly and they have become the best of friends, still seeming to bond more and more every day! Gus loves playing, cuddling, going on adventures, and has become quite the kayaking partner. He brings joy and cheer to every day and we were clearly meant to be together ❤️

I must send a shout out to Paws and Claws Rescue and Gus’ foster parents Deb and Al for caring for Gus, placing him with me, and their continued dedication to many more!

Below you will see some photographs from our first meeting, meeting Mighty Gus:

Today’s video is one I find quite entertaining, but I am not sure if that says much (haha). Wilma has decided she loves watermelon, a new thing this year. She was so pleased that Gus assumed this must be something exciting. So I thought it a must that I share this video of family watermelon time! They are adorable ❤️

June 20 – Kelsey Arboretum – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Kelsey Arboretum in Boxford, Massachusetts. The Kelsey Arboretum is a four acre property that preserves the shrubs and trees of Harlan Kelsey who originated the Arboretum in 1929. The Arboretum includes various greenery and has benches, and picnic tables for guests to sit and relax.

We had a shady Adventure to the Kelsey Arboretum. I was pleased to arrive to find we were the only car in the parking lot. We ventured through the gates, reviewed some information, and headed on our walk. We circled the Arboretum and found several other trails to traverse. As we were aware the property was very small. We found minimal flowering plants and guessed we may have missed the main blooming season of the Arboretum. I was a little disappointed at our findings, but yet it is always nice to have wonderful company and spend some time in the great outdoors. Glad we could cross off another New England Arboretum from our list today (Rating: 2).

Today’s photograph is a selfie of me with Shadow and Wilma at Battleship Cove in Fall River. It was quite the scenic pose at a unique location. I am so grateful that I have been blessed with three amazing pairs, Shadow and Wilma being the second pair. We so miss our boys! Glad that these two had many spectacular adventures together.

June 6, 2022 – Ralph Waldo Emerson House – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Ralph Waldo Emerson House in Concord, Massachusetts. The Ralph Waldo Emerson House was the former home of Ralph Waldo Emerson, a poet, philosopher, and lecturer. The home is now a National Historic Landmark.

We had a brief Adventure to the Ralph Emerson house. I thought we would check out this historic local home before heading to our main destination. I was surprised upon arrival to hear loud barking dogs; I am guessing due to a private residence in part of the home. This made me a little cautious to approach the home closely, but yet there was minimal to explore either way as we were just visiting the grounds.

The house was gorgeous, a lovely white fence lining the property. The garden was simple but had some blooming florals. The pups were not up for a formal pose but still were adorable in their synchronized shot. Glad to formally visit the Emerson home today (this blog will not be rated)
