A Hike and Some Donuts

We hiked Sleeping Giant yesterday! This is the very first thing we do when we arrive! We gotta let every doggie know that Maggie and Mitch were here!

We sure do love coming up here! There are just so many awesome smells!

Here is mom's favorite rock! She tosses coins at it every time we come up here! I wonder if anybody ever finds her coins? UHOH! Mitch has weckies all over himself! Dad let him sniff too far off the trail and he tangled with the weckie plant!
Mom says his fur-type is much easier to comb these nasty little buggers out of than mine is! Mine is more like wool and it tangles and the weckies stay hidden in my beard for days and days! It drives mom nuts!

Poor, Mitchy! He's got them in his eyebrows very close to his eyes! ewwwwwwwwwww

There's the castle at the top! The moon is still out! Can you see it all the way to the right just above that tree branch?

This morning our friend, Dana came up from Rhode Island to spend the day with dad! Guess what he brought for mom and us? Jelly donuts from Dunkin Donuts! OMG, thank you so much, Dana!
We haven't had one of these delicious babies since dad's tour of barns in the spring! OMG, I'm drooling!!!

We could eat these every single day of our lives and never get tired of it! What a wonderful invention!Thank you so much, Dana! You can come and visit us anytime!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch


  1. You guys are sooooooo lucky! Dunkin Donuts jelly filled. Yummy

    have a good weekend


  2. What a great place to go for a walk!

    I have never had a jelly doughnut. I am very deprived obviously. You look like you are really enjoying them. I will try to get my person to get me my own jelly doughnut. That was so nice of your friend to bring them to you.

    Your friend,

  3. oh what a fun day!
    how wonderful to see dunkin donuts again. heee... i have had one of those since i was a kid.
    you all are so fun!
    m & e

  4. Donuts! Yummy donuts!!! I want donuts!!! Those wekkie things look horribel...what are they? DO they hurt?


  5. Hi Maggie and Mitch.
    We call Weckies 'stickybobs', and yes, they are a pain to get out. Looks like a good place to walk though.
    I don't think I've ever had jelly doughnuts... sigh...they look scrumptious!

    You are so lucky!

  7. Woof Maggie and Mitch

    We can't believe you get donuts. You two pups are the luckiest pups in the world. We are so jealous.

  9. OMG! Jelly DONUTS! OMG!


    Putter ...:)

  10. A hike and doughnuts!?!? You two REALLY lead the life, don't you? Both sound WONDERUFL!!!

  11. Couldn't ask for a better treat - a hike with your humans and jelly doughnuts to top off. What can I say, it's a dog's life :-)

  12. that is such a wonderful hike. we love that castle at the top. do you get to read a lot of pee mail along the way? poor Mitch, getting all of those weedies all over his face. we hate that.

    we're drooling for those jelly donuts.

    hey, come see the awards we got for you.


  13. Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
    I can see you are having a great weekend. A nice hikking and Dunkin Donuts!
    Kisses and hugs

  14. You guys ARE lucky - Mom would have a fit if someone gave us jelly doughnuts. Always worried about our weight! sheesh...

    I never heard the term 'weckies' before. Mom doesn't really call them anything, maybe burrs or something. I like 'weckies'!


  15. Those weckies are terrible...I hate them too...Here we call them "pignolo"...
    Your jelly donuts look sooooo this like our "boule de Berlin" ?... I wish I could taste to be sure...
    Kisses, Faya

  16. Poor Mitchy! Good thing his furs aren't as wiry as yours and Patches! They would come off of Penny and Poppy pretty easy. You two always get the best treats! Duncan donuts rule!

    Poppy, Penny & Patches

  17. That looks like a great place to go hiking, I'm really lucky because I have very short hair so sticky things are pretty easy to get out, which is a good thing Mum says as I am always poking my nose where it shouldn't be!!
    Those Jelly Donuts look amazing! Dana is a good friend!

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend,

    love, licks and tailwags,

    Ben xxxxx

  18. Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

    Sleeping Giant looks pawsome - is it in Connecticut? That weckie plant is really a mean one - hope you are not in too much pain, Mitch.

    And you two get jelly donuts? Are you sure you aren't humans dressed as dogs?!?

    Have a good rest of the weekend.

    Love -

    Hershey and Kaci

  19. Goober Maggs & Goober Mitch!

    You know, it is my (not-so-) secret desire to one day hike Sleeping Giant with you two gooberbuds! My girl says that once she finishes her thesis (let's not talk about it) she wants to treat herself to a driving tour out your way, and bring me along. We shall see.

    Those jelly donuts look FABulously tasty. I'm glad your mama is the sharing sort. I'm sure she'd have a revolt on her hands if she didn't share.

    Goober love & smooches,

  20. Oooh, I hope none of those weckies gots into your eyes Mitch. Mmm, dunkin' donuts are the BEST!

  27. I love going on hikes too! I also get a lot of burs and sticky leaves stuck on my feathering so my mom always has to bring a brush wherever we go. I've never had donuts before. They sure look delicious!

  36. Good evening m & m.
    It is wonderful hiking.
    A big castle is very interesting.
    How does it become it in the castle??
    It goes out Dracula somehow ..the moon and the castle...
    This is a joke.
    And, the doughnut seems to be very delicious.
    I want to eat the doughnut. :D

    from loved ume tyan

  38. oh, yummers Jelly filled donuts...lucky doggies..I am drooling so bad..mmmmmm


  39. Nice score with those donuts.

    Maybe Mitch will trim his eyebrows now to avoid the weckies.
