Trying to Enjoy our Yard

We own 3 acres of land and I admit, we don't use it all like we should. About 1 acre is our house, driveway and front yard (that is where you see us playing ball). We have some bush behind the house and to the side. Given that last Sunday was a cool but sunny day, we thought we would take the dogs out to walk on it. We took Phod off leash and Lee on her tie out.

Sniffing the find

It is a deer print. We haven't been seeing them as much, but we know they are around. 

Part way through our nice walk, the dogs took off, down the trail that runs behind our house. Here they are coming back (with the Man).

Phod running between the trees

Clearly not discouraged that he was scolded for running away

Heading home


  1. Wow!! Isn't that beautiful! Looks like some of our Town Park's that we walk.

    We have an over abundance of deer this year in our yard. We see them every day and talk to them all the time. Butt, they never listen!

  2. Nice to have a big property like that. I'd be clearing some for an agility ring though.

  3. Oh we would love that as our back yard :) xxoxxx

  4. Oh what beautiful property you have....Phod a little taste of freedom is worth a scolding as long as you didn't get lost.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. BOY HOWDY you have a super place OF YOUR OWN to take Grrrrreat walkies in. Just beautiful.

  6. My gosh, 3 acres?! You lucky things! That walk was gorgeous, haha, Phod is so funny!
    Pippa :)

  7. That sure looks like a great place to explore. Maybe me and Stanley can come by and go exploring with you!

    Your Pals,

  8. Nothing better than being off the leash.

    Aroo to you,

  9. That does look like a lot of fun! And the photos are really beautiful too. We have about 3-4 acres as well, but there aren't any trees lol... Most of the property is just flat and grassy. And there are lots of structures here. 5 greenhouses, a barn, an office... some other stuff too.

  10. Wow! What a beautiful place! We live in the middle of a busy urban neighborhood and when the Human steps out the front door of the building, she's on the sidewalk! (Me, I don't go outside at all cause there's just cement and cars and stuff ::shudder::)

  11. What a breath of fresh air! Can almost feel the crisp-ness of Fall in those woods.

  12. Pretty cool, you have your own forest with deer and good smells!
    Hike on, Hailey and Zaphod!

  13. Looks like an awesome place to find adventure!
