A fallen tree adventure

Howdy everybuddy.  We were all set to tell you about our being abandoned by our mum and dad when we had some excitement on our summer track where we walk.  Who cares about mum and dad's holiday anyhoo.  We weren't there so the photos are boring.  We'll show you next time just to keep mum happy.

This huge old gum (eucalyptus) tree fell right over the track, covering the whole road.  We've had lots of rain, and strong wind  (no not from my bottom!) hehe.  This is what we found yesterday.

How can we get through?

I went over on the way down the track.

The way back up was a different matter.
Daaaaad?  Daaaaad!


This way dad.  Stella, it's easy.
Yep, Stellie got under, no worries.

I tried to get over.

And tried.

Hehe, seem to be having a little trouble here.

 Dad, this is not time for Irish dancing.

Er, you aren't leaving me are you?

Mum, I can't do it.

 I'm scared.  Noooooooo.

 Wait for me, waaaaaaait.

 I'm coming, wait for me, waaaaaait.
 Phew.  Made it.

I am not a baby.  I'm not. 

Even though I was worried I would be stuck there forever, I made it.  Mum says I was very clever cause with my longs legs it was hard to climb past the tree.  We don't know how long it will be like this cause this road/track is closed to traffic.  We'll have to be extra careful once the snakes start coming out of hybernation that's for sure.  See ya soon mates with mum's boring old, dogless holiday snaps.  

No worries, and slobber, 
Rory (who can't climb trees) and Stella (who can).



  1. Wow, what an adventure! That tree was nothing to you Rory, right?! Good thing Stella is stealth and can sneak right under :-)

  2. Talk about an adventure. Yikes nearly time for the snakes to come out. Crickey. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Please be careful, whith this snakes. Wow, to have such strong winds in the bottom what fells a tree must be gorgeous :o)

  4. we would have so much fun climbing all over that!

  5. Oh my dog, that downed tree is H-U-G-E!!
    I'm glad it's not stopping your walkies, though :)

  6. Rory, you are so tall, with a good running start you should have been able to fly right over that darn tree!

  7. What a adventure you had. Glad they waited for you though. Keep away from those snakes.. Hugs GJ x

  8. Whew, we were getting scared everybody had gone home and left you (as if they would :) Hope the council or whoever it is clears it out of your way soon.

    ps, Mum laughed like a drain at your comment about being grateful that it wasn't Rory pooping on the carpet. She is, believe us, LOL!

  9. That's a huge tree! No wonder Rory was having problems.

    We haven't had as much wind and rain as you guys. We just had enough to make everyone happy.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  10. We lost our power last week because of a tree down across the road. And poor Ryan was out at work when it came down, so he had to park at the town hall and walk the half mile home! He had to walk a long way around the tree, too. I hope those snakes don't bother you much.

  11. Wow! That's a big tree! Does it smell good being a eucalyptus?

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  12. Rory this comment nearly made mom spit out her tea
    "We've had lots of rain, and strong wind (no not from my bottom!)"
    OMDs we are so glad the tree was no where near your were certainly in a predicament....too many branches to get a running leap, too tall to get under. Genius that you are though you made are a talented Dane for sure.
    Speaking of winds
    As the pirates say
    Fair winds (good bye, good luck)
    madi your favorite wench

  13. Thats a big tree!

    Stop on by for a visit

  14. What a ginormous tree. Maybe you can drag it home to play with
    Benny & Lily

  15. Don't worry Rory we're not good tree climbers either, our short legs don't allow for it BOL
    Have a grrrreat weekend you two,
    Wally & Sammy

  16. Snakes? Ah no thanks. Your mom wanted to know if Debbie could pull all three of us in a wagon. Well Rory's kind of big so we'll have to get him his own wagon but I have 3 different dog walkers, so we'll just get two to come by the day you're in town and we'll go for a ride together. My dad will cover all treats. Bison jerky and liver anyone?

  17. Must have been windy to take that tree down!

  18. What was The Dad thinking, trying out new dance moves while you were stuck?! Good thing that The Mom was there to rescue you! They would never leave you behind, I don't think you need to worry about that.

  19. Sorry Rory but this was kind of funny!!! But you were right to be careful!!! You could have broke a leg!!!! Smart dog Rory!!!
    I DO so miss Zoie!!!

  20. That was an adventure...Glad you made it! Time to fire up the chainsaw and make some firewood..hee hee!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  21. I am afraid mate, that rather like me, you are a bit of a nancy boy! Deccy x

  22. That certainly was a challenge!
    P.S. we're looking forward to the holiday snaps :-)

  23. I feels your pain and fear, Rory. Those downed trees is bad, bad, BAD! There is times we has to find a way around coz I just plant my paws and refuse to move. We still has lots of trees down ofur trails like that from when Sandy blowed through here almost a year ago. I is getting too old fur doing the blow down tree limbo.

  24. Gosh Rory I really was worried you weren't going to make it there for a moment.
    Well done. Old boy.
    Toodle pip!

  25. I know Rory, those trees are supposed to be standing up! So when they're down they just plain confuse a bloke!
    Gorgeous header of you and Stella....... -pat- -woof-

  26. Oh Rory and Stella thank you for sharing the story of Freckle, Your poor mum.
    24 hours we know she was just frantic. Just like a cat to stretch, yawn and walk out and probably wanting to eat.Now the 4 hours I spent in the horrid closet with the owl don't seem to bad at all
    Hugs Madi your bfff

  28. Well, at least it hasn't stopped you two getting a good walk and adventure! Oh, Rory, I was scared for a minute you'd be stranded on the other side of the tree and left to the snakes!
