Bald Hill

Well, the vet told us that Finnie was fat, and not the kind with a "ph", although I certainly think she's phat, but I digress.  So, we must get more exercise!  Off to a new place we go!

I drove past Bald Hill one day and wondered exactly what is was.  
After a little googling, I discovered it is one of the tallest points in our area.  
A Memorial was built here in 1991 as well.

Pretty! Well, essentially, the park is a large hill, go figure.  And the memorial is on top.

But another new place to sniff and poke around!

If that's not a "Thanks-Momma-for-taking-me-here" face, then I don't know what is!

Anyway, so hopefully we'll be getting in plenty of new 
walks soon as we begin Operation Phat!


  1. Hey Finn! You look perfectly FINE to us!! It is always nice to find a new place to explore!!! Hope you had a the look on your did!!

  2. You look well built in your photos. Not at all *fat*. But getting to hike and expore new places sounds like a lot of fun!

  3. What a cool place to go for a walkie! Luv that pyramid thingy :)

    Waggin at ya,

    PeeS: Great 'Thanks Mom' smile by the way :)

  4. Bugsy is joining you for operation phat... the vet told him to lose weight too. Unfortunately, he doesn't go outside, so he has to do it the old fashioned way.... cutting back the kibble a weeeee bit. Hope he doesn't notice.

    Have a great day.

    pawhugs, Max

  5. What a great place for a walk and to work off any extra pounds :-) Have fun Finn - you look good to me - woofs and licks Magic xx

  6. I think all vets are trained to say everyone is fat! Don't worry about it Finn, you look great just the way you are!!!

  7. Looks like a great place to sniff and it is a beautiful monument. From your pictures Finn looks pretty good to me, but I guess pics can be deceiving. ;)

  8. You dont look chubby at all to me

  9. Love that "operation phat"! heehee! That memorial is pretty cool and Finn sure does look like a happy girl! :)

  10. Hey Finn!
    Wow, I think you look wonderful, but any excuse for walkies is a great thing! This is a beautiful place and I love that flag on the memorial. Definitely a happy-girl face in that pix! Enjoy your walkies in the nice Spring weather!

  11. Nothing better than outdoor walkies to keep body and soul in shape!

  12. Now matter the reason.... Walkies are Wonderful.

  13. Loooks like there are lots of good times ahead. Enjoy.

    Doggy Kisses,

  14. Did you remind the vet that Goldens have lots of fur, Finnie. WE are sure it's just fluff. But always good to get a nice walk.

  15. My vet claims that I am a little PHAT too.. Boo them. BOL, Totally agree with Tucker and Daisy, our fur maybe just the reason why :P Glad that you have a nice walkie! :)

  16. Mom got my ice cream cookie treats at Big Y grocery store. No way are you phat, Finn!

    Love ya lots,

  17. I'm a fanatic (or is that phanatic?) about fat (phat!) and monitor my dogs like a hawk! They still get plenty of treats, but if I notice any pudge starting, they miss a meal or too.

    Now.....If only someone would monitor my food that closely ;-)

  18. Finn, you aren't fat, but if it means extra walkies then I'd just go with it.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  19. Finn is FAT????? Where ??? We don't see no stinking fat. But if it means nice long walks, we can go along with it:)

  20. I don't see any fat!! But, that is an interesting place for
    a walk :)

  21. FAT?!? No Way, Finn!
    Do you know what the sheep say about fat?
    Ewes not fat, Ewes fluffy! teeheehee
    Licks and sniffs,
    Zack, Sassy, and Buddy

  22. The upside is more quality time with the family.

  23. Yeah, yeah, the vet has been telling me the same thing for years ...just tell them it is all fur. Your are fluffy not fat!

    Your pal, Pip

  24. You sure look cute Finn! Thanks for you comment about Daisy.


  25. LOL, fat and not phat eh? Just tell them that your big boned Finn!

  27. Fat??
    Hmmm.... I don't think so!
    But sure is pawesome you found a great place for walkies!
    Good for you... good for your mom!
    Kisses and hugs

  28. How dare your vet calls you fat. If that's the case then we're all fat and overweight.

  29. Finn, we think you are perfect just as you are. Fat indeed! Bet you only weigh a measley 30 kgs or so. Sheesh. Our old angel sissy Kara was told she was fat but we told her it was only her fluffy hair. Mum didn't want her to worry. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  30. what a beautiful memorial. looks like a wonderful place to explore.
    xoxo, bailey

  32. You don't look fat to us!

    But if that means your getting lots more walkies in new places it must be a good thing :)

  33. That looks like a nice place for a woofie and their human to walk!

    P.S. Finn is very Phat in my eyes!
