Guinness here! Years ago I told you about a tree that reminds my human of AFRICA! And everytime time we hike down there we pretend we are going on a big safari.
The problem is Maggi does not like to walk through the long straw. I think it makes her feel trapped and she can't find a way out of that long grass. So my human dad took his tractor and cut a trail--SEE?
Now we can all enjoy the walk to Africa again. And look... Maggi loves it!
My human climbs the tree. She thinks she is 9 and not 39.
But Maggi does not like that one bit. She cries and whimpers. She does not understand "UP".
So now we will all sit together UNDER the tree instead!
Besides...it's better to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground.

Hi! Guinness here. Here is a short video of a Boston Terrier taking me for a walk. Don't worry--it is only 19 seconds! It is my friend Willis. He has a lot of energy, I can't be bothered moving so fast as him!

That's right. We found an old apple tree and have some questions for Gramps. The Annapolis Valley is famous the world over for its apples--and Gramps? Well, he knows all about apples.
We hike and hike and finally find that old apple tree.
Gramps lets Maggi have a guess first. Maggi thinks it tastes like a GREEN apple. But Maggi is wrong!
Gramps goes for more apples. He will go anywhere to pick any fruit. Careful Gramps!
Now I have a go at the apples. Crunch crunch smacksmack smack GULP. I say it is some kind of RED apple.
Gramps says that is cheating. He fills up his pack with MORE apples!
Now for the official word. Gramps has a smackeral. He says they are an ancient breed of Cortland apples and there was a farm here once. Gramps spits out his apple. He thinks it is too tart and we all laugh very hard.
The sun is going down. The days are short now. It is time to meander home.
We pass back over the fields, through the old farm land and back to the trail.
We were really happy to have our Gramps here with us on our walky.
Ever since my human was a little pup Gramps taught her about all the little wild flowers and the different types of trees and all the birds and animals.
It is important to have quality time you know.

Hi! It's Guinness. We are close to home but on a path we have not 'splored' before, if you can believe that one! Well, we come across this little pond way down in the gorge--see?
UH OH! Maggi HEARS the water. Maggi SMELLS the water! Maggi LOVES the water and Maggi wants IN that water!
DOUBLE UH-OH! Maggi starts heading down the bank. She is very bold. The humans always have to watch her close because she is a bit too confident.
Oh please watch this short video--watch Maggi find her way down. Remember she has never been here before and is completely blind. WOW! SMART MAGGI!
Well looks like Mags finds the water and has a little cool-off. Hey, this place is neat!
I like all the old stories and the lost history. It is fun to think about huh? Plus it is a good way to keep my mental faculties well exercised. Til next time....love Guinness.
