A Sunday Drive with Smokey

Sunday was mild and sunny so we stopped by the house after church and picked up Smokey for a Sunday drive. We drove out to Keystone Lake and stopped on a hilltop with no one in sight and let Smokey run around off the leash.

We thought he would go sniffing through the woods but instead he went straight for a nearby building to sniff at the trash can. Why chase squirrels when there might be a hot dog in the can?

Nothing interesting in the can. That's OK Smokey, you can have a dog biscuit when we get home.

Love the jaunty crossed-paws in the last picture! How did you come to name him Smokey?

Poor Smokey just wanted a snack.

He had to check it out. Hot dogs don't run as fast as squirrels.

LOL, I bet mine would have first checked out that can too.
Dogs ;)
But then they would have gone for the wildlife :)
He's such a cutie :)!

Why go farther for the food than necessary :-)

Thank you for the commen! It isn't as bad as it looks: It is some ventilation outlet on the flat roof of a pumping station for water. I'm standing on the top a small hill beside it.

Beautiful dog! It seems to very clever (if I can use this term for animals).

Smokey is a terrific dog. He loves everybody, does not bark, does not jump on people, shakes hands, sits up, and rolls over.

He knows when I am going out and beats me to the door. When I stop the car to go into a store he jumps into the back seat and waits for me. When I get out of the car, turn back to him and say "OK" then he jumps out to go with me. He is a fine friend and a wonderful companion.

Smokey is living proof that a Pit Bull raised by a loving master is as fine a family dog as anyone could hope for.

Beautiful dog. The name, Smokey, sure works.

Oh, what a beauty! And I believe just as you do: it's the master.
