Wagging Wednesday: Porter gets his day

Psst…Don’t forget to enter my Allied Medal Display GIVEAWAY!

If you have followed this blog for a while, you will remember that I once had a beautiful boy named Bailey who I would feature on my blog every Monday.

I called it Muttley Monday.

I hemmed and hawed about how to feature Porter weekly because really Muttley Monday belongs to Bailey in my mind.

I finally settled on Wagging Wednesdays.

Porter’s little stub of a tail wags all the time.  Back and forth. In circles one way, then the other.  He is just a happy dude.  So Wagging Wednesday is completely appropriate for him.

We took a walk last night on a dirt road that I love that runs along the Dead River.  The road is a little muddy, but it is really just a nice walk (a heck of a great run too).

I only dropped the camera in the river once.  That’s pretty good for me.

It is hunting season here in Maine, so we were both decked out in our hunter’s orange.

Um, can I have a Zuke’s treat?

Good walk Mom..zzzz

    Man… if only we could teach Frank to clean his paws… he thoroughly enjoys jumping up on me when they are uber muddy :(

    Heather made hunter orange bandanas for our monsters for when we hike.

    I am clumsy too… first day I had my new cell phone, scratched the screen from dropping the thing.

    Can’t wait for next wednesday!

    Love Wagging Wednesday!! Porter is so freaking adorable. I’d love to bring Maggie up there and let them play. Maybe she would learn to stay near me and not chase light, animals, or leaves. She attacked the drain pipe on the house this morning because a chipmunk ran up it. Ugh. Bogey joined it but had no clue why. It was too funny.

    Wagging Wednesday! Love it!

    It is a good thing you have that water proof camera. Some people just don’t get along with technology. Sounds like you are in good company with MattyO.

  23. This is great. Thank you for doing a feature post with Porter. I miss Bailey too but it is great to have the opportunity to share the love with Porter and show him a great family from us to you and him.

    And those Zuke’s drive Ginga crazy. Is there hemp in them or something? She’s never gone so nuts for something before in her life.

  27. Great idea. Bailey is forever a piece of you that no matter what will not be replaced. I’m so thankful you have your fur-baby Porter. Bailey would not want you to be without a companion! Hugs to Porter from Cooper!
