Longest Operation Phat Yet!

We took Finn to Brookhaven State Park, where we have had varied success in the past.  
Hubby convinced me that instead of doing the usual BLUE 
1.7 mile trail with Finn, we should up it to the RED 3.7 mile trail.  

Well, it seemed as good of a time as any, so off we went.

Sometimes you gotta just follow the tail!

Can you see that in the middle??

A deer!  We saw quite a few, here are some tracks.

3.7 miles of nice woods.

C'mon slowpokes!

What?  Is someone trying to pour me some water here?
I am trained to look at the camera!

Little father/daughter time during a rest.

She did really well!  We knew she was getting a little tired towards the
end, but I am glad we decided to up the walking length!


  1. Wow! That's a pretty good hike! It sounds like Finn did really well too. She looks awfully happy. It must have been pretty cool to see deer along the way! :)

  2. That's a good hike! In Sam's younger days, we used to take him on long hikes. The only thing that stopped us was if the terrain was too hard - here in AZ we are known for some wicked hiking trails!


  3. What a great hike!! And spotting a deer to! Wow you are so lucky!!

    Milo :)

  4. Way to go Finn!!! You saw deer too -- how cool is that!!!!

  5. What a wonderful hike! Finn you did pawsome. Do you go crazy like me when you see a deer? Have a wonderful weekend Finn and family.

  6. Looks like it was a beautiful walk!
    Lovies, Miss Mindy

  7. That looks like a grreat hike! 3.7 miles, wow!

  8. Wow, what a nice long walk Finn! I bet you needed a little nap after that!

  9. Good for you, Finn, doing so well on the long walk!
    Beautiful park in the woods!
    BTW how do I get a picture of my Hello Puppy to you?
    I put my crystals together to make a Golden one and need your feedback.

  10. Well done Finn, you are going to be so Phit very soon.

  11. Dat looks like a luverly place to walk.
    I is glad your peeps didn't get lost but I knows you had a good eye on 'em.
    Is you tryin' to loose a few pounds, I think I missed sumptin'.


  12. Well Phit Finn. Looks like a great place to take a hike. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  13. That looks like a wonderful place to walk. In no time Finn will be doing 3x the length. :)

  14. I lol with that photo caption of Finn looking at the camera, hehe. How do you train her so well to always look at the camera. I want to learn that trick.

    Come grab a DIVA badge from our bloggie for Finn, she definitely deserves it, esp after all that walk.


  15. WTG FINN
    I'm impressed and my sweet it takes a lot to impress this cat!
    Great job on the hike. My peeps are avid walkers for me I sit home to guard their water!
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  16. Woof! Woof! That's Great. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  17. Great walk on the trail. We would go with you if we lived closer!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  18. that is awesome that you could go 3.7 miles! bailey gets tired just walking around the block!!!

  19. I got tired just thinking about it....

  20. Well done, Finn. And it was a good idea to keep your Dad on the lead so he wouldn't go haring off after that deer.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    We don't think we could have walked that far.

  21. Good for you for choosing the longer route, Finn, and what a beautiful park!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  22. That's really cool you got to see a deer! We have a walking path that I sometimes take my boys too, but all we ever see there are other dogs.

  23. Finn....
    I'm baaack!! I haven't any clue as to where I went--life's busy goings-on's took me away--but I'm back!! ;-}
    When I enlarged the picture of that deer, I felt as though I was there!! Literally!! Suddenly I was both in awe at this sight, and quiet as to not frighten "her" away!! Silly me!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  24. Well done Finn! Unfortunately Sammy gets "scottie cramp" so loooong walks like that are out of the question for us.

    Have a grrrreat weekend!
    Wally and Sammy

  25. Almost 4 miles! Wow! Good for you all! I just luv goin on walkies :D

    Waggin at ya,
