It’s Been a Whole Year!

Yowsers!  We realized that we haven’t blogged in an entire year and while we’ve been enjoying visiting with you we thought we would let you know what we’ve been up to too!

We spent some time enjoying our parks!

Then in the spring Momma and Pops LEFT US and went to St. Lucia for a vacation. We stayed with our FAVE sitter Lynne…

And while we were staying there, Lynne's bunny went over the rainbow bridge.  In her haste to bring the bunny to the doctor, she left some bunny food (raisins) out and Charley got into them.  When Lynne got home, she had to rush US to the DOGtor.  It was horrible!  We had to stay there until Momma and Pops got home.  They were sure glad to see us!

They were sure glad to see us!  We were ok, but the DOGter had to do some precautionary tests.  Like my pink band-aid?

So we chilled at home for the rest of the summer.

Finn & Charley Update

HEWWWOW!  Finnackles here!  Oh, and Charlez too.  We heard round the block this week that some of you all have been asking about us!  So, we thought we’d give you a little pupdate on how we’ve been doing!  I know, I know, it’s been a while, butt we promise you that we are doing fine.

Let’s see, we’ve been dressing up – HalloweenChristmas

Dad got stuck in the mud

Now, we can’t say when and if we’ll be back full-time, cause Momma’s been a tad on the busy side.  She said she doesn’t want to bore you with the details, but sometimes humans have things happening.  So, if you feel the need to delete our page from your reader, we won’t be offended.  We’ve got nothing but lots of love for Blogville.

Night night!We hope you all are doing fine and…Till next time!

Gone Fishin’

*Whew*  I am exhausted!  Take a blogging break!

Hewwwow!! Finnackles here, telling you about the cache I helped Momma find. Check it out GC2N6BV – The Way a Sandwich Should Be (1996-2000). Momma had me out and said she needed my sniffer to find this one. It was actually hidden with a magnet under this random sign in a strip mall.

We looked to the right to make sure there weren’t any muggles around when we grabbed it.

Anyone see what’s behind me? A Subway shop. And their slogan was “The Way a Sandwich Should Be” from 1996-2000 (apparently!  We looked it up when we got home). The sign where the cache was hidden was directly across from the shop in the parking lot.

There’s the cache! Our log was rolled up inside there. We signed it and put it back so the next person could find it. Geodog Finn here, hoping you all had a great time looking for your caches!

Over and out!

PS – Make sure to hook up with the linky link over at Gizmo’s if you’re joining us on your geocache adventure today!  And….last but not least…I would like to thank my outdoor partner in crime today for hosting this event!  You rock Gizmo!

Charley Says, “It’s Geodog Day!!”

Hi guys!  We can’t wait to see where you took your peeps for GeoDog Day!  And, have you seen Head Cheerleader Madi today?  She knows how tough it is to sniff out those caches so she is cheering us on!

GeoDog Charley up!  I am back in Patchogue with my friend Maya and we are out looking for virtual cache GC86F8 – Sticky Situation. The map took us just a little bit behind the Main Street in town, and we knew we were looking for something sticky from the description (and name).  Can you see what we found?

How about now?

I think Maya was trying to get a taste! Here it is close-up!

Reminds me of a smaller version of the alley way in Seattle, if you have ever been there. Once we made our find, we had to email the person who set up the cache what we would name it and if we had a contribution. We did not make make a contribution (gross!) and I called it Bubble Gum Alley!

The cache was right next to a church, and since we were there on a Sunday, we had a little listen to some music and said a prayer.  I wanted to go inside and see if Goose’s Mom was there with Goose and Murphy & Stanley, but my Momma told me they weren’t there.  Sorry guys, I tried!

GeoDog Charley reporting here, cache found.  Over and out.
