I bet you are wondering what happened requiring us to refrain from mischief! Well…the other day, the weather was gorgeous, sunny, not to hot, not to cold and Mom said she wanted to take all three of us girls for a walk. With Katie being so slow and not able to go very far, we hadn’t all walked together since last fall.
It is really hard for Mom to take us all because of our different energy levels, but she also wanted to get some family photos, so off we went, but she specifically ordered us to leave the mischief at home. Somehow, I had the feeling the comment was directed mainly at Bailie, and slightly at me.
We loaded into the car and then drove a short distance to one of our favorite places to walk. Katie was so happy to be out in an area she hasn’t seen in a while and to be walking together with all of us again too. Despite the troubles she had walking uphill, she had a perma smile on her face the whole time.
We didn’t walk very far, maybe 3/4 of a mile in all, but it didn’t matter as we were together and enjoying a beautiful day! Mom broke her own no mischief rule by taking us down this trail which was clearly marked closed. She just can’t resist!
Bailie did a little wall walking and thought it was cool to be “so tall” for a time.
The whole walk took about forty five minutes because we had to walk so slow, everyone had to stop and poop (except Mom, she never does her business on walks, weird), and we did several photo stops. By the end of the walk, Bailie and I had given up and were also walking at Katie’s pace, and we never did get into any mischief. It was a lot of fun, but Mom isn’t sure if she can handle it on her own again or not. We will see!
I am joining the Monday Mischief blog hop brought to you by Alfie’s Blog, Snoopy’s Dog Blog, My Brown Newfies.

Emma, you all look wonderful and happy. You, Miss Emma may not have gotten into mischief when you walked but you did in your post! It was when you said what your mom does not ever do on your walks and calling it weird. You are so bad! XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
Well, I have my ways of getting even with Mom sometimes without really getting in trouble.
Youz all look super happy.. My Mommy never poop’z on walks either.. Hope’z you all had a super Easter and that youz got load’z of Turkey treat’z xxoxxx
Mollie and Alfie
We had a great Easter weekend with lots of attention and food.
Ellen Shedlarz says
So happy that Katie got to go with you. Just look at the smile on her face. She was really happy. Well done!
She was really happy, and that is what counts the most!
How fun that the three of you got out to walk together! It looks like Katie was so happy!
As hard as walking can be for her, she still loves going for walks and with all of us together she really was happy.
Golden Daily Scoop says
Awww, Katie looks so happy! Glad you had a nice walk all together!
It wasn’t a very long walk, but it was nice to be together.
It was great that the mischief had to stay at home, so your cat brother had company while you had fun outside :o) I always wonder why my humans never take the chance for a potty break when we walk around… I mean a potty break is the reason for a wlak… or not? have a great monday!
Humans can be real hard to understand sometimes!
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
Good dogs – I”m sure you will make up for the lost mischief sometime soon. So glad Katie got to get out and enjoy the day with you – You’re a good sister Emma.
I do pretty well slowing down and realizing we can’t walk so far, but I do get frustrated. Bailie doesn’t get it at all.
Quinn, Carol and Catitude says
You all look so sweet and happy! I am so glad you all got to go together to enjoy the beautiful weather!
Thanks. We had a nice family outing.
Will and Eko says
Awesome photos of the gang. Well worth the effort, which I’ve no doubt was herculean!
Mom was pretty tired out after the event, but we were all happy to be out together and everyone made it without major issues.
Maria Sadowski says
Your mom is a trooper – walking three dogs isn’t easy. Especially when they all want to check stuff out in different directions, lol! Great photos.
If we were all the same it wouldn’t be so hard, but Katie being so slow really throws a wrench in the mix. Mom has a hard time walking so slow with only Katie, but she does because Katie deserves her walks too.
I love your photos, it as worth the walk and no mischief.
Mom said it was well worth the hassle for a few good “family” shots.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
So happy to see the grass on the ground where you all live Emma! That is amzing! LOL I adore Katie’s photo – she looks wonderful. Happy to hear you all had fun.
Houston, we’ve got grass under our paws! It is starting to turn green in a few spots too. This week we are cool and getting lots of rain, so if it warms up and the sun comes out next week, look out!
Talent Hounds says
Katie looks so happy to go with you. Happy Easter.
She was really happy. Mom gets frustrated because we don’t seem to care that she has a hard time walking, but we are dogs and dogs are that way. Katie likes to just be along.
Frankie and Ernie says
That was an EXCELLENT walk….. butt you bring up a good point…. We wonder why it is that Peeps don’t do THEIR Bidness and leave Pee Mails while out with us… They are just SOOOOO strange… aren’t they?
Humans are hard to understand sometimes!
Two French Bulldogs says
You could tell us if mom pooped. She shouldn’t be embarrassed cause we all poop right
Lily & Edward
She never does. We wait and wait, but she only stops for us and then she carries our business around in a bag. Odd!
Jan K says
It was so good of you and Bailie to put mischief aside for a while so you could all have a nice family walk and get those great photos. I bet Katie really appreciated it….she sure does look happy.
Katie really enjoyed being out as a whole family again.
Oz the Terrier says
Oh Emma, what a nice family walk you had with you mom, Bailie and Katie. I’m so glad you took it easy so Katie could keep up. We senior dogs do love the outdoors and family time even if we are a bit slower on the “go”!
Mom says to Katie if she walks any slower, she will be going backwards, but we deal with it sometimes because it is the right thing to do.
M. K. Clinton says
I am sure that Katie was very happy to be out with her sisters and mom. Sometimes we have to slow down to keep pace with our elders, but it is always worth the time.
We all felt pretty good about it after we got home.
Great family photo Emma!! Hooray. Katie looks beautiful. Mom’s sister and nieces are visiting. We have had so much fun — they love us! We are why they are visiting, we’re sure. Have a great day, your doodle friend Dash
I always humor mom and let her think people actually come to see her, but I know the truth too.
So pleased you got to all enjoy the walk together
Thanks. It was a nice time we had.
Earl Lover says
Nice walk. But naughty Mom! How could she ban YOU from mischief and perform it herself I wonder? Ah well, her mischief was your mischief!
We were happy to help her out with her mischief.
Brian Frum says
Sometimes you just can’t help it, being good just happens!
Not too often but sometimes.
Together time is always nice.
It was nice since we haven’t attempted to walk together for months.
Lauren Miller (ZoePhee) says
Awe! Family time! It looks like you three had fun, even if there was no mischief allowed! 😀
Yep, our furry family and Mom. It was nice.
THAT was really nice of you and Bailie to wait for Katie, Emma. I’m sure it meant a lot to Katie to be included in the family outing. I don’t blame mom for not doing her business on the walk, I only do mine if I really have to. 😉 Shhhsh, that’s our secret.
Wow! That is unusual, I will keep it secret! We had a nice time being all together for a change, but Mom was worn out.
Barbara Rivers says
I love seeing pack pictures 🙂 How nice that you all got to go together ~ how very mischievous of you to walk down the path that was closed off….I had to laugh out loud when reading the part about your mom never doing her business on your walks!! What IS up with that?!
We think Mom might be a bit shy??? We had a nice outing even on the closed trail.
Susan C. Willett says
So nice to know the human doesn’t poop on the walk. 🙂 BTW, that one picture of Katie is really special!
–Wags (and purrs) from Life with Dogs and Cats
Thanks. We hope mom behaves, I guess it is pretty normal for humans.
Whitley Westie says
Dat’s pawsome dat y’all got to go on a walk together!
It was lots of fun but a bit stressful. We will see if we try it again
Sooo weird that the humans don’t stop to poop. Seriouslies, we wondered that too.
Humans can be difficult to understand sometimes.
Our Mama only walks Arty and Jakey at the same time…because their energy levels are about the same…but usually, she just takes one of us at a time…and takes several short walks a day!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
My mom is always out walking with someone around here. It is good for her to get so much exercise, LOL!
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
what a great walk and such great pictures.
Thanks. Now and then we need some new family adventure shots.
Pooch Smooches says
Oh, that’s so sweet! Love how happy you girls all look together, especially Katie!
She really had a fun time even though it wasn’t really easy for her.
Tenacious Little Terrier says
It’s hard with multiples! Good thing you girls all behaved.
Mom was pretty much all business, so we decided behaving was the best thing to do.
Hi Emma, Katie and Bailie, long time no see~~ 😛 Why does it look so brown and dry over there?? Have fun!
It’s spring and the snow just melted. It is slowly starting to get green.
bailey unleashed says
leaving your mischief at home really payed off. the pictures came out great!
Oh, slow walking. I feel like a weeble walking Cole… like riding a bike super slow and you fall over… he goes so slowly I might fall over. LeeAnna at not afraid of color
Any slower and we would be walking backwards, but Katie enjoys it, so we walk slow.
2 Brown Dawgs says
Pretty pictures of pretty pups on a beautiful day. Sounds perfect, mischief or no.
It was a perfect day for a family outing.
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says
Well I for one am glad to hear your mom doesn’t poop while out on walks! haha!
