Critters We Saw On Our Trip From Arizona To Idaho

Our Mom likes to say something is "cool as a moose". This fellow was upsome cool!!

We saw all kinds of critters on our journey from Arizona to North Idaho. Mommy actually got a few good photos of them along the way too. The Bull Moose in the pics is just getting his new antlers. They shed them in the Spring and start a whole new set. Who knows how large they will grow?! The Big Horn Sheep were right along side of the road and seemed quite unaffected by our barking at them. We are not very well behaved when we see new animals...we love to bark to let them know we see them. Both the moose and sheep were in Montana. The American Bison, also known as Buffalo, were in Wyoming. There are Bison here in N.Idaho too, at a ranch near the Canadian border. Maybe we'll get to bark at them sometime soon.

Now, for the surprise we got in Colorado. Mary's husband Jim bagged this 4 point buck (his name is Ralph) a few years ago and they decided to give it to us for our cabin!! Wasn't that a wonderful gift?? We are already used to Ralph hanging on the living room wall, so don't even bark at him. We save our barks for the live deer and moose that visit outside.

We will be here at our cabin at least until the end of November, so we'll post more photos as time goes by. Hope you have enjoyed the view!

We're glad you made it safely to your cabin. We don't think Piper would ever get used to having a deer hanging in the house!! You are really good not to bark at it.

Thank your Mom for sending our huMom the website for your friend with the Llamas. She is excited to see that your friend spins dog hair - she hasn't had time to really peruse it yet, but will do so soon.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Hi BRD and Hootie,

What a neat trip! That is so cool that your pawrents have a cabin. :-) You guys must love all the new space to investigate!

Sniffs and licks,

How neat, Mama just loves Moosies! She collects lots of moose things, even has some shed moose racks. The mule deer looks great by your fireplace. Hope you have a great weekend.

Wow - those are pretty big critters ... on our trip to the Lake District we thought the cows were pretty impressive! Not sure what we would do if we saw such things....

Have a great trip...

Hi Guys
Great pictures - now you see you get to see mooses (not mice!) and we get to see Highland cows!
Looks like you had a great holiday.
We didn't think Ralph looked too pleased right enough.........
love and kisses

Ruby Red Dog said...

Can't wait to hear all about your adventures in Idaho. Some of those critters up there look a bit strange. No wonder you've been barking at them!

We like the moose the best, their long round noses are just so cute.

Colorado! Colorado? You were in Colorado and we didn't even get to sniff you????? Next time tell us when you're passing through! We'll come find you!

BTW - Cool moose. Mom and the Girl have seen moose here (one of the Girl's nicknames is Baby Bullwinkle), but we've not seen one yet. They are awesome creatures.

BRD & Hootie,

First I got your postcard then on Saturday I got your package. We're going to open it today (Mom likes to open and write the blog at the same time. The post will go up later in the week because she's trying to schedule a couple of posts for while she's away on her vacation. That is so cool that you get to stay ther until November! Do you have lots of space to run around?


pee ess - did that moose help you look for rocks?


Wow it's a bit wild over there. I don't know what I'd do if I saw that moose. He's as big as Mango!


tula said...

Never seen 4 leggeds like that before..some barking might be necessary just to tell them who's in charge. good thang they don't bark back:)

Can't wait to see what else goes on!
Glad you had a safe trip.


Moco said...
