Duck Hike

This past weekend we had pretty nice weather. So Mom and Aunt V took us to feed the ducks for the first time and for a short hike afterward.   

We had never seen ducks this up close before. We thought they were funny looking. They were also making funny noises. Squacking and hissing at us!

Aunt V took us off leash to explore a little. And Swisher started chasing the ducks for hissing at him. Bol. I don't think they liked that very much. 
Swish didn't read that 'no water contact' sign before heading towards the water, so back on leash we went. 

I tried to tell them I was a friendly Boston and I wouldn't hurt them, and just wanted to hand them bread crumbs... but no luck. They kept their distance. 

Not all the ducks were unfriendly though. Cautiously some of them would come up pretty close to us...

 ...and a few of them ate right out of our hands. (Well Aunt V's hands. Bol.) 

 We followed the near by trails for a hike.

It was pretty warm out and Swisher was already out of breath from all the excitement from the ducks.
 Swish, there's a bench up ahead. C'mon dude you can make it.

We rested a bit and headed back to the car.

On our way back to the car, we came across this sign.
Don't feed the ducks? Ooooops. Bol.

Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day Weekend!

Lots of licks,
Oakley and Swisher


  1. I love your little nature walkie! And those duckies are beautiful. Those same ducks were here last week! But they seemed to be enjoying your sunshine- and here- they had rain.

  2. What funs! Look how close you gots to them. Mum says that Canada Geese are totally vicious. They spits and hiss. We have lots here. I really totally ignores them but my pug pal Dickens... he totally tries to chase them and his dad gets all mad.

    What a great time you hads.


  3. What a most excellent walk you had. I think you showed the ducks who is boss. I am sure the little bits of bread will not spoil their appetites too much. It looked like a wonderful day.
