Blue cautiously stepping down the waterfall…
In November we went to Transylvania County, Brevard, North Carolina to the Dupont National Forest. It is the Land of Waterfalls. We saw many beautiful waterfalls. The dogs came with us, and we stayed the night. It was pretty cold, but worth it, as we got lots of beautiful pictures.
These were all taken back in September. HÜSKER loves the pool, maybe even more than Blue the Newfoundland. Even on freezing cold days, which now in December we have sometimes, if let into the backyard, he will go in the pool. Usually just to wade, but sometimes for a full swim.
And a video:
My friend Andrea got a Newfoundland puppy in August. His name is Crosby, he is of course, over 6 months now, but these are pictures from around when she first got him. He is such a sweet pea!
Funny video of Crosby playing with our silly kitten:
I stupidly loaded up 3 kids, 2 dogs and a kitten in a crate to go to Birkdale Village, an outdoor shopping area, for the kids and dogs to see Santa today. Blue took one look at Santa, backed up and gave a loud woof. He did not see Santa. The kitten would not come out of the crate. She did not see Santa. After being told, by Santa, that he must remain hypoallergenic, HÜSKER sat a few feet away from him and got his picture taken. Next year, I guess I will go to Petsmart for a dog friendly Santa.

These are some pictures from September. We went on a camping trip.
After the camping trip, we met up with the Blue Ridge Bernese Mountain Dog Club for a picnic and hike, but my hands were full with the dogs, so I did not take any pictures of all the lovely Berners there.
I really enjoy going to the U.S National Whitewater Center. It costs $7 to park, and no admission costs. There is hiking, rafting if one is brave enough, zip lines, canoeing. I like to go and hike then have lunch at the dog friendly River’s Edge Restaurant. They have a yummy menu, especially their salads and fried pickles. Yum!
These pictures are all from early October.
