Busy Busy Busy

I've been such a busy Pug these days out at the airport.  One day Bella the Rottweiler "puppy" came over and we had a nice walk on the trails together.  She's really sweet even when she tries to herd me!

So much is going on now that spring is upon us ... different plants around the airport are starting to come into bloom.

People are flying their airplanes more and more.

Every day is a nice day for a hike on the trails.

And there's always something interesting to sniff along the way.

And at the end of the day, I'm just dog tired from all of the fun adventures.

Smelly Stuff

Well mom and I did our usual weekend thing and walked the trails at the airport on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  The weather was just perfect for hiking and as usual there were so many interesting things to sniff that I would often stop along our journey to smell something that caught my nose.

During one of our treks, we spotted some deer that ran off as soon as they heard us approaching.  Mom thought it might be a good idea to follow one of the hundreds of deer trails to see if we could find any more deer.  You can see some of the deer trails in this picture that mom took while flying over the airport property a couple of weeks ago.

 Here I am trying to keep up with mom as we explore the deer trails.

The trails led us to a little canyon that was just the right size for a pug to explore.  I have a feeling mom is thinking about calling it pug canyon!

However, I think the best part of my hike was the very smelly spot I found on the trail.  I rolled and rolled and rolled and rolled and rolled around in it until I felt sure I had the wonderful stink all over me.  Mom just laughed and when I finally was finished she said I didn't smell at all!  All that wasted effort!!

 All of that hiking and rolling around in smelly stuff makes me one tired pug.

Mom wants me to put up this picture of me in my Mardi Gras beads.  It's one of her favorites from when I was just a puppy.

The day after my "Good Friday" we had MORE visitors come to the airport.  There was all kinds of food and flying and even some aerobatics.  There were so many people there that I didn't go a moment without attention.  Can you find me in this picture?

Sunday was an exciting day also, because Ranger and Flyer came on a walk with me and mom and dad at the airport!  Flyer and I are pretty good about walking off the leash on the trails.  Dad thought he would give Ranger a chance and boy did he take off running.  We tried to follow him but couldn't keep up with him.  Eventually he came back around and found us!  That was the end of his being off of the leash for awhile.  Mom says what's important is that he always comes back and he always gets a "good boy" for coming when we call him.

On our walk we think we finally discovered where the bobcat(s) .. I mean deer .. sleep!  

It's near a little pond that mom says she's probably going to christen as Pug Pond.

It was pretty warm out on our walk so it was good to cool off a bit.  Then we decided to head back to the airport so we could check in on one of the airplanes that mom said she's going to take me flying in very soon!  I hope she ordered my Mutt Muffs!
