Not the Best Decision

Mom and I decided that it might be fun to hike Sleeping Giant this morning.    When we got there, we realized that it might not be so much fun to navigate in the icy crusty snow.    Mom freaks at anything that resembles ice under her feets!

 Come on, mom.  This isn't so scary!
 I promise I'll go slow and not pull you along but there are some good smells here!
 This is fun!  Stop your whining!
 The ice is sure sparkly frozen on the rocks. 

 We made it to marker #33!   yay
 And then the woos decided that she didn't want to go any farther. 
It's a beautiful day, mom!  Look at that gorgeous blue sky!  You can do it! 
We did turn around and going back down wasn't quite as easy as climbing upwards.   She seemed to find all of the slick spots.  
 Next stop was the bank and I got a cookie☺
 And then to the car wash to get the MollyMobil cleaned up~
 We'll actually be able to see out of the windows now, mom!
 Next stop - Agway!
 I need small treats for the treat machine, mom.   You said that Cheerios is too sweet with too much sugar that I don't need.  
These will do quite nicely!
Sleeping Giant wasn't the bestest idea but we had a fun morning anyway!    We'll go back when the weather warms up☺

Love ya lots♥
Molly

It seems the humans are not as sure footed as we doggies when it comes to snow and ice. Glad you got some yum yums, though.

Great encouraging, Molly. You have to encourage the peeps to get out sometimes...they're always looking for the easy way.

I am with your Mom on that. I hate ice and feel like I am wearing roller skates when I am walking on it. At least you got down safe and sound. I have to get my jeep washed as it is really dirty. At least you got some treats out of it Molly. Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx

Your Mom was a lot braver than ours would have been - all that ice!!! Yikes!!!

But that stop at Agway sure was worth all those goodies.

WE loved the Sparkly Trees... That is beautiful.
OMD those are a super Treat Dispenser Treat. You will be GLAD that your mom said to leave the CherriOs to Madi's mom. THOSE will be Delicious.
We love the HIKE that you took your mom on. WELL DONE Molly.

We're glad your trip was without any slipping incidents and you both came out okay. Looks like you scored big on the return trip home with all those stops.

You had a very special morning! I don't think I'd have made it on the ice either. Great choice of treats!

Sue said...

Be careful on that ice. Our Mom has broken her wrist twice because of ice that she didn't see in time. You'll have plenty of time for the climbing when spring gets to your neighborhood.

Terry Legan said...

What a great day. And treats to end it with.
Have a fun weekend. I hope the sun shines and melts that ice.

Ice is always scary under your feets! Looks like you had a fun walk though! Always good to stop for snacks!!

Perhaps a bit early for a spring Hike? If you try again next week, it might be Better?
