Weekend Adventure, Part Three!

After our exciting walkie at Fisherman's Wharf, we drove a couple blocks to the BC Legislative Building.  Usually the building looks impressive but having my studly handsome self standing in front of it puts everything in perspective!

Here I am in front of the Speaker's Chair!

Some of the nice architecture...

The Firefighter's Memorial.

More of the architecture... I found it quite strange that there are peoples standing all over this building in different nooks and crannies.  Mom tells me they are statues and not real peoples but it still seems weird to me!

Taking a break on the cool grasses and doing some tourist watchings.

There's also a small rose garden on the grounds that we had to check out.

So that's it for my three part weekend adventure!

Mom and I are on vacation next week and because we still don't have a computer or the internets at home, we will be indognito for a while. 

We have plans for many adventures and mom says that she might even buy a new laptop!

See you in a week or so!

Weekend Adventures, Part 2!

On Monday, it was British Columbia Day which means that mom didn't have to go to work!

We got up early and headed to the waterfront to a place I've never been....

Fisherman's Wharf!

First of all we walkied around the park that was next to it so I could leave some introductory peemails for all the other doggies that would stop by that day... I wouldn't want them to not know that the Pippen had also been there!

That big ship is called the Coho and travels between Victoria and Port Angeles, Washington.  It was just arriving with a bunch of peoples on it.

Here I am on the wharf going to check out some of the float homes.  When we went by one of them, the little doggie that lived there barked like a maniac at us!

This here underwater swimming type dog is called a Sea Lion and he sticks around the wharf because all the peoples stop to take his picture and feed him little fishes.

I'm not sure I liked him very much because he looked at me like I would be a nice tasty breakfast for him!

Making sure mom taked a nice photo of me in front of the boats...  I sure am a handsome dude, if I say so myself!

I would highly recommend checking this place out if you are ever visiting or if you have a similar place in your hometown.  One word of caution though... we had to go down a really steep ramp that made funny noises and moved.  I totally wasn't skeered at all but I don't think I'll try it again!

Weekend Adventures, Part One!

Sunday afternoon, mom and I went back to Beaver Lake.

It was stinking hot out so a walk in the forest was just what we needed!

And we saw another woodpecker.  I told mom that this one's called a Downy Woodpecker.

and check out this pretty fern!

Looks like somebuddy read our bloggie from last week about getting lost!

Somebuddy drew an arrow showing us which trail we need to take to get back to the car.  Good thing too, because I'm sure mom would have gotten us lost again!

Beaver Lake Adventure!

What's that off in the distance?  Is it?  Could it be?

A grey doggie off leash?

Hurry up, Mom!  This off leash stuff is fun!

Yep, that's right!  On Saturday we went to Beaver Lake, about 20 minutes from our house to get out and walkie... we've been here before and I love it because I can totally be my own dog.

The scenery is spectacular!  Especially when there's a good looking dog in the photo.

Uh yeah, mom.  I know you wants to go that way but I'm off leash and I say we're going this way!

It's so much fun wandering around in the forest looking for bears and other wildlife...

The only problem with that is not paying attention to which trail you should be taking and thinking you are on the right one until you get to the end and see this instead of your car!


We obviously zigged when we should have zagged...

but getting lost has it's perks.

Pretty flowers...

and a woodpecker!

I had to wait forever for mom while she took pictures of him.

We eventually found the right trail and got back to our car.  Our walkie turned out to be a lot longer than we expected and the nap we had when we got back home was well deserved!

Deuce Days!

Hey Ho!  On Sunday, I went to check out a bunch of cars parked on the street!

How is that different from any other day, you ask?

Well... first of all, there were tons of peoples milling around.

Second of all, we gots to walk on the street... or the sidewalk... it just didn't matter!

And last but not least!  As you may have already figured out... these were fancy cars!

In fact, we were told that there were 1,160 cars parked around the Inner Harbour in Victoria

For a while, it looked like I was the only doggie that was interested in fancy old cars but then they started to come out and I even said hi to a couple of them.

Just check out that engine!

A pink car?  Who would have thought somebuddy would want one! 

Taking a break on the cool grasses and getting ready to look at more cars.

This one was nice... but I liked the red one the best!

All right, everybuddies!  Stay away from this car!  This one's mine!

I liked this one too but mom said we don't like blue cars as a rule.

This one is lip-smacking good!

"Ya ain't gonna get me, Copper!"

I think this truck was mom's favourite...
