View Full Version : ***A Big Walk....Lots of Katie Pics***

03-10-2004, 06:12 PM
Well, Sunday was a pretty decent day here. So my friend Deedee and I decided to go out to my parents house. My parents have about 23 acres and we took a big walk around the property. Deedee is my girlfriend's 12 year old daughter who likes to come and stay the night with me sometimes. Katie absolutely loves having her come and stay with us! I never let Katie off leash because she is a runner. I mean if she happens to get out the front door she is gone! It scares me to death and this is one thing that drives me crazy about her. Anyways, me and Deedee decided to work with her on this out at my folks since it is wide open field and no one around. We found some really lightweight rope and tied a big long piece onto her collar so we could let her go and also step on the long piece of rope if we had to. Turns out that we didn't do much working with her because we had to much fun running around and taking pictures. I was so nervous at first because Katie would start to run off and I would have Deedee run after her and step on the rope. Deedee runs very fast thats another reason why we tried it...lol. I realized I was being too paranoid and it turned out that Katie was just running around like crazy sniffing everything but would follow along with us and if she went ahead of us she would stop and look back to see if we were there. She scared me a few times by wandering too far away, but we would holler and she would come back. At her slow usual pace I might add. Once I was taking a pic of Deedee in a tree and Katie went through a hole in the old farmers fence that runs down part of the property. She started to take off into the other field and I got so scared. Once again I hollered at her and she stopped and just looked at me. Then I said Katie, NOW! She came running back and had to find the hole again. Which was really cute because she kept sticking her head through the fence and I would have to say "No, thats not it. Its on down the path." She would move down and try to stick her head through again until she found the hole. She was a very good girl and I'm proud of her! I would never attempt this anywhere else. I felt a bit safe being on my parents property in a wide open field with no one around. I know it was still a risk but I just wanted to see how she would do. I knew she would love it and she sure did. My husband wants to go out next time and go on back through the connecting fields. I'm looking forward to that. I will still be using my long lightweight rope though!

Ok, now for some pictures!!


Lots more to come.....

This one might be silly or maybe even morbid but we got to visit our RB dog Chloe who is buried on the property. I've only been there a couple of times in the past because it is so hard. It was easier this time and I got to plant a kiss on her rock and tell her about Katie. I know she approves and is watching over us. Now I'm crying....geesh I was just fine that day...

That Katie just gets bigger and bigger! When is she going to stop growing?!!

Those were all wonderful pictures! Tell DeeDee to get out of the tree before she falls!;)

It sure is nice to have you back Robin. You have been missed, and so has Katie! Katie is getting more beautiful all the time. She is some huge dog!

Yippee! I've been waiting for these. Sounds like Katie had loads of fun. All these pics are great but I really like this one.
It really does look like she loves DeeDee. It's good that she's got someone to run with.

03-10-2004, 07:38 PM
You have a very cute dog. How do you get your pictures to come up on here through ImageStation? Mine always say that it is trying to access from outside of ImageStation and I don't see my pics.

Wow! I'm jealous.. I want a land like that.. with a lot of acres! :D Great pics of Katie!! She's so cute! Hug her for me!

Looks like a ton of fun!! :)
Nope not morbid visiting the grave almost everytime I go to my parents house, I go to Shaianne's marker and tell her "hello"
The first time I took Keegan there when she was about 8 weeks old she ran right up to the cross and laid down all the sudden with her head in her paws. It was almost like she was 'bowing' down if you will to Shaianne and telling her that "I am gonna take care of Mommie now. -k-?" :)

Oh those all were great pictures!!!!
Boy Katie is getting soooo big!!

03-11-2004, 07:35 AM
Those are GREAT pictures! I tried to find my favorite but couldn't pick just one. She looks so happy out there running, sniffing and exploring. Never bored to see pictures of Katie - she's beautiful.

03-11-2004, 08:09 AM
What a fun day, Robin!! :) I loved each and every picture! I know that having DeeDee around makes it even more fun for Katie too!!! :D

Thank you so much for getting these pictures posted for us all to enjoy!!! :)

Robin, Katie is such a beautiful girl!!! It's wonderful to see her all grown up. It looks like she had lots of fun running around and playing with her young friend. Thanks for the pictures.

03-11-2004, 10:12 AM
Great pictures Robin, I loved them all! :) Katie is such a beautiful girl and is so enjoying herself. :) Thanks for sharing!

Absolutely great shots! She is looking so grown up! I really have to get out and take more pics of Dale...we are trying to sell our house, so we havent had extra time for stuff like that...

...But i am glad that you've had time, b/c it was so fun to look through them! Post away more pics whenever you can :)


03-11-2004, 11:33 AM
Oh what beautiful pictures! I felt like I was out on the walk with you. It was wonderful, not boring at all, and not silly visiting RB Chloe. I love the favorites others picked, but this one also stood out to me:


That's just so sweet. Katie is so beautiful, and I was very happy to see new pictures of her!

I know what you mean! Angie is buried in my yard, but I see her grave everyday. I talk to her a lot when I take Syliva and Harley out. They must sense something because they never do their business on or near Angie's grave. I thought when my dad buried her there that it would upset me and be a constant reminder, but I like having her close. The only thing that really bothers me is when it rains and thunderstorms. Angie was terrified of rain and thunder and my body is trained to be up when it rains because I would always be comforting Angie on nights with rain. It bothers me to think that she is outside all alone during a storm. I know it's silly, but it still bothers me. Oh great! I made myself cry.

Great pics!

Katie is a real sweetheart :)

Katie and I say thanks for all the wonderful comments. I had so much fun watching her run that day. She loved it! Alden is on his long weekend starting tomorrow and I hope we get some nice weather so we can do it again. It is so much fun for Katie and it really wears her out....lol...which in the end can actually be the best part...lol.

I hear ya!!! Dale can become so full of energy, that after a long run in the field, he comes home, and sleeps :) Puppies, puppies, puppies :) Gotta love them, but sometimes the energy level is through the roof, add a two year old skin kid to the mix, and you have one tired mommy! LOL :)

Only thing is with Dale, we cant run him too long, b/c he is growing so rapidly, his joints start to ache...but he gets enough, and gets his rest afterwards!

Katie and Deedee are both so beautiful and they
are having so much fun. I loved the pic with Katie looking
up and touching DeeDee's chin.

I wish I was their romping on 23 acres too. :)
All the pictures turned out great.
I never get tired of looking at Katie pictures.
She turned out to be such a wonderful beautiful girl.

I do not think it is morbid at all about
your visit to Cloe. the picture turned out
